Hub score on an un-published article?

    I am new to hub pages and started a hub article the other evening. I saved the article as a draft, but did  not publish. Today I noticed that a score had been attached to the article......Where did the score come from?

    The hubscore is produced by things other than traffic, including the scores of your other hubs.

      Hi psycheskinner,

      Thanks for the quick reply, I appreciate it.

      This is virtually my first hub draft. The article is far from finished and I have not proofed, edited, or hit the "publish" button. Is the score created while an article being written?

        At this point you should not worry about your score. it will go up and then down, all the time. Just think about quality and guidelines. Read the instructions. You don't want to anger the Gods of Hubpages! But seriously, you always can come back and change everything, that's the beauty of Hubpages.

    Once created, the hub will get a score whether published or not. Any pageviews, including your own, will contribute to the score as will its contents.

    your visits count towards your score as the others have said.  Proof reading, tweaking and editing all bump the score up.  A considered, quality piece will by the very process of writing it, afford you a good initial score.  You must be doing every thing right!
