Is there a reason that I am getting views on my unpublished hubs? Also, my score goes down on my hub even though it's not published yet. Am I missing something?
The views are you, and don't worry about the fluctuating HubScore. It's just the nature of the beast.
That's weird. I thought the views were based on IP addresses rather than how many times someone navigates on the page and I knew the scores fluctuate at first, but didn't see why when it's not published.
But oh well. I was more curious than anything. Thanks Darkside!
Whether the hub is published or not, its score will fluctuate day to day. It will usually rise slowly, then go back down.
The views are based on whoever views the page. If you look at it, you count. Just like if a hubber returns to one of your published hubs a day or two later, that view will be counted just like the first one. Views don't make you money, clicks do so IP addy's have nothing to do with the views.

I've got a few hubs in the works that are unpublished, but somehow they are getting page views. I'm sure they aren't published (some of them are just titles to develop for later) and they show up in red on the...

This really isn't a problem, but rather something I am interested in finding out. I have a few unpublished hubs with little to no content in them, and the thing is, one of these hubs outranks one of my published hubs! I...

Hi there...I just published the hub below and am confused why the starting score is so much lower than other hubs. In comparison I took an extensive amount of time making sure to include tons of unique...

I have a couple of WIPs (Works in progress) that are not yet published and in one case is simply a holding tank for an idea. Does keeping these in my "space" and unpublished affect my scores in any...
