How does ones hub start out at much more than the score of 50 ? What influences this?
I've managed to get a few Hubs up into the lower 80s before they have been published. What influences this is the same things as which effects a published Hub.
A high-quality topic, good written content, diversity of content (images, video, links, etc), good tags. The ranking algorithm looks at both published and unpublished Hubs. I always let unpublished Hubs stay that way for a few days after I finished making them specifically to see how they are doing and what can be improved. I'll then edit them to make them as strong as I can before I hit that publish button. They might spend a week being spruced up before they are shown to an audience.
I agree with relache, a hub must be about high-quality topic, contains good written content with no misspellings and do not contains poor grammar. It must be informative and attracts a lot of readers with videos, links, and good tags. I used the same approach relache uses when writing hubs. I will take up to a week to write a good hub and leave it unpublished while I am writing it. My hub scores will usually start in the low to mid sixties before I publish them and will go up very quickly in a few hours after publishing them. It does take some work, research and patience to reach those high scores.
i struggle w/ hubbing; i'm highly unfamiliar w/ it, so i currently avoid it. someday i may retry, but not now
I also think the amount of outgoing links within the Hub also effect initial hub scrore.

This really isn't a problem, but rather something I am interested in finding out. I have a few unpublished hubs with little to no content in them, and the thing is, one of these hubs outranks one of my published hubs! I...
