I have 3 hub that are not published yet. The thing is their scores are going up. Two of them are in the 60's and the third that was posted saved unpublished 2 days ago is at 55 with 4 views? How is this possible?
The views are your own. And the HubPages algorithm works on the material that is in the Hubs, published or not.
Yes, I have a couple of unpublished hubs that I have been working on and their scores are also in the 60's now. Whenever you click on your hub to edit, that is considered as a view, so you must have edited that particular hub four times.
Our own views are counted. Even unpublished has URL and hence the hubscore goes up.
You are correct, the number of views does affect the score, but there are a lot more factors involved in a hub's score, as relache mentioned.
Correct me if I am wrong - our Hub Score does not reflect any of the unpublished Hubs? Whether I have unpublished it or if it has been pulled?
You mean our Profile scores ...don't you?
I am sure it does reflect your hub score and other interactions in varied degrees. Hub scores are not the 'only' reflectors of the profile scores.
The traffic organic and internal, the comments all may have their own impact but HP does not reveal the way profile scores are arrived at.
I don't know if previously published hubs hurt your score, but I am pretty darn certain that if you have lots of hubs that you just never published (ie URLs that you have 'reserved'), it does affect your hubscore. Don't ask me how I know that.
The distinction between "Hub Score" and "Hubber Score" always causes confusion. Hubber Score is the official name for the score by your avatar, I think. I prefer Author Score. "Profile scores," that's new to me, but sounds good as well.

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...

I'd like to suggest we get rid of Hubber Score - and perhaps even Hub Scores. They:- are constantly misunderstood;- cause a lot of upset and grief in the forums; and- encourage newbie Hubbers to direct their...

I have had a few hubs moved to various niche sites with hub scores ranging from 69 to 87. I feel I have much better hubs remaining on the original site than some of those selected to move, especially my latest which was...
