Do unpublished hubs pull your score down?

    I know I've seen this asked before but I'm being a tard on the answer to this- Does having low scoring unpublished hubs bring your overall score down?
    I have 5 lingering hubs that I just can't quite get myself to finish yet-
    At the time I started them I was all gung ho and now I can't seem to get the interest back to finish them.............

      I actually know the answer to this one.  big_smile 
      Yes, it doesn't get affected.  I have 5 unpublished hubs myself.  lol

      Hi Violet:)
      I asked this question about weather to delete low scoring hubs to increase hubber score and the advice from HPs was to improve the hub to increase the score which im always doing all the time and works! smile also if they are hubs you cannot improve and your not proud of then delete them..

      Good luck:)

        Oh, wow, I didn't think of this! I was talking about unpublished hubs, but its good to know about the published ones with low scores.  I tend to forget about my old hubs even if I may read them again now and then.  Thank you so much for bringing this to my attention,  as I see some of my older hubs getting too low in score  from lack of activity.  Sending you a cyber xoxoxo. smile

          So, re-writing, adding, improving an existing hub is a good thing? It's not static once it's published?  What if the score is just dwindling due to age...although my "good" hubs seem to stay pretty good. Who knew? Two of my "best" hubs have been request answers...both sort of 'off' the way I thought I'd write, or at least what I thought I'd write about...has anyone else had that happen?

            I've gone back and added and changed things on hubs at times, and it has helped the score.
            That's one of the reasons I like Hubpages, you can do that anytime. With some other writing sites you are stuck and can't change things when you want.

              I just finished updating one of my older hubs; added new pics, links and a video, and pinged it, as per the suggestion of IMhustle in another thread

              I am going to be tracking the hub to see if it works. smile Realize I have been too passive with my hubs- I write them and forget them.

    I have a friend that would like to join hubpages, can anyone tell me how I can send her a link that would also give me credit for her signing up?  I read somewhere where you can do this, but forgot where to find my link.  Thanks
