I'm working on my latest hub, but ran out of time and energy last night before finishing it to any decent quality. So I saved it unpublished.
It has a 49 right now. But if nobody can read it, thus rate it, where does such a number come from?
The number will go up the longer you let it sit there. I dont know why though, maybe someone else can answer that one....
Oh, I don't know - there was one draft I saved - and only as a back up to a back up to a post it to a voicemail sent to myself to remind me to call Dr. so and so. I wrote it to help me organize my thoughts and be more efficient with communicating my "issues" - as doing so in real time is extremely hard - AND ONE OF MY ISSUES! lol
Anyway - it sat there for quite awhile before I started paying some serious attention to my hub account this week and added some truly original content, started mingling in the hp fora, and (swallowing hard) completely deleted some hubs.
You gotta understand - I'm a genuine hoarder. As in - it's part of my OCD and I take real medication and I really do "hoard". And in this 21st century, that means voicemails, drafts, emails (inbox 49,947) STOP SNICKERING!! - and yes, even some hubs that were real stinkers (according to general opinion - like, rated in the 30's).
I was just curious. If I get off my butt tonight, maybe I can finish and publish it. But given the scope - it's gonna be long and personal....so who knows.....
I would love an answer to this question because I've been wondering as well
I'm a new hubber and I saved a draft of my first hub with only the title written, no picture, no body and still got a score.....
I have noticed that hubs left before publishing do tend to rise in score. I can only guess that the visits you make to the hub as you work on it, which show up as visits may help the score, But I am not sure about any other factors that influence the score of a hub prior to publishing.
It is best not to be too concerned about Hubscores as sometimes people feel upset when the score of a hub drops and they cannot fathom out why, when they have expected the score to rise.
BTW Jbaks - You will need a Hubber score of 70 and a hubscore of 40 for the hub to be a do-follow, that is all you need to watch score wise.
The worth of the keyword in your title plays a huge role in the hub score initially though, later other factors come into play. It is not as if any title/hub sits there your hub score rise to the contrary.. you with find hubs with poor keywords going down to a score as low as forty. I hope this sheds some light on the discussion though this is not all there is to it.

After 6 months on the site i've started the really wonder how many backlinks is a reasonable number to any hub, and really to a hub becoming successful? Or is it simply a lottery.What kind of figures do other hubbers...

Sometimes when I have ideas for hubs, I "start a hub" and sometimes finish it later or just let it sit there for a while. Maybe I should just write down my hub ideas instead. Does it hurt my hub scores or...

I was just wondering why my hub score increases even if it is still unpublished. Some are already in the 60's before I even publish them. Why is it like that? I'm sure there are lots of factors...

Hi all - its been a while since I've been on the forums. I'd love to see a new feature that would allow us to schedule a hub to be published. When editing a hub, the score tends to drop a bit, and I...
