Okay, this is an oddity...
Yesterday I started a new hub. Then I realized I didn't start it correctly (for the Hubbers competition.) So, I abandoned and deleted the hub. It shows as deleted on my statistics page.
I remember noting that it had a score of 50 when it first showed up on statistics. I thought, "That's odd. A deleted hub with no content has the same score as the initial score for another hub, full of content, links, pics, and vids."
This morning, both hubs -- content rich hub and deleted hub -- have an improved score. Deleted hub = 58, and Content Rich hub = 60.
It also shows that there have been 2 views of the deleted hub.
How is this all possible?
Once you hit the "delete" button, it takes 24 hours for the Hub to actually be deleted.
Until the Hub is actually gone, the site algorithm can look at it, and so can the Hub author/owner.
The views are your own, and when you visit a hub that has a low score, the score will rise. When ever I have deleted a hub, the score has risen before it disappears.

I was shocked this morning that despite posting a new hub last night my hub profile score had dropped from 96 down to 88. I posted in Hubber's Hangout and it turns out that I am not alone because other hubbers have...

Just had a big drop on my profile score. And all my hubs were featured along with a steady 10 Editors Choice. I say 'were' because 3 were just unfeatured and I don't know what to do about that. My...
