Unpublished Hubs

    I noticed that my unpublished hubs have a hubscore (and a low one, obviously).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    Ive had unpublished hubs have a score higher than some of my published ones!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!

    Unpublished hubs do not affect your hubber score.

    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 that unpublished hubs were somehow counted against you.
