I noticed that my unpublished hubs have a hubscore (and a low one, obviously). Does this affect my overall score (or anything else for that matter)? I've tried to figure it out on my own, but I can't quite tell if it's affecting anything.
Thanks in advance!
Ive had unpublished hubs have a score higher than some of my published ones! Its because as you add stuff in and edit the views are counted - I can get a bigger hub up to a score of about 70 before I publish it ! I don't know if it makes any long term difference but I do no leave hubs for 24hr before publishing just in case!
Thanks for asking this, Helena, and for the info, Paul.
I had been wondering about this, myself-- my typical writing "M.O." is that I have anything up to 10-12 articles "open and in progress" at any one time, polishing and tweaking them until they are in "publishable" condition. I was feeling a hesitant about doing that here because I thought I read somewhere... and maybe I imagined this... that unpublished hubs were somehow counted against you.

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 I have a few unpublished hubs with little to no content in them, and the thing is, one of these hubs outranks one of my published hubs!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...

One or two of my hubs have fallen victim to the "does not meet quality standards" empty bubble.In one case, I imagine it is because the hub falls under the "purely personal" category, better suited...

Like, say I have an unpublished Hum with zero content (just the tittle)... will it effect my author hub score or anything if I let it sit too long without finishing and publishing it or deleting it?
