Should I leave an unpublished hub unpublished if the score remains high?


I unpublished a hub as I was not happy with it myself, but the score continues to remain high. I never intend to publish it in the future, and I know the score will eventually drop due to no views, but will leaving it unpublished as opposed to deleting it while the score remains high, effect my overall hubber score?

    Hi peachpurple, thanks so much for answering. Yes, I could change up the story, as it is a fiction piece to where I would be happy with it, as that is what really matters.

    Hi jonnycomelately, I love your hub name! Yes, I do not write with the intention to earn money, it is just if I am really happy with the writing, but do not want it to affect my overall hubber score. Thanks for answering!

    Hi Mary (Till), thanks for the answer. Well, it was the hub for billybuc's writing contest, and I just wasn't happy with it, and now I was just wondering if, over a period of time, it would have any affect on my overall hubber score.

    Hi Rock_nj, thanks for answering and I may just do that; however, I was a hub I had written for billybuc's creative writing contest, and I had withdrew it, and the contest is over, but I can still have it published as a hub, but it is a little late.

    Hi dashingscorpio, I agree, I do not care as to the popularity of the hub itself, as I, myself, was not happy with it, as it lacked that certain something, so I unpublished it, although it did receive great comments and views.
