Is there any harm in saving Hub ideas as unpublished hubs so that you can write as you go? An Admin or staff would be AWESOME if they could answer this question
I would say it isn't bad but I wouldn't hold them to long since the hub starts at 50 and the longer you wait to complete it the lower your initial rating on the hub is. Also I believe there is a limit to how long you can have a hub in waiting but I have yet to reach that limit with any of my frozen hubs.
Who told you that? Paul Deeds?
My experience runs rather contrary to this. I'll be talking about some of that in my next Hub about improving your Hubs.
An unpublished hubs score will fluctuate. In fact it's likely to go up. Though if it is neglected and forgotten, after a while it can also dip right down.
Some have suggested waiting to publish a hub when it climbs into the 60s. But my experience is that if you published a hub straight away it would climb into the 60s as quick or quicker as if you had left it to 'marinate'.
And an unpublished hub remains unread. So I wouldn't be concerned what score it was when its first published.
I've always got a few unpublished as I come up with ideas, do the keyword research, then have to wait til i have the time to write it!
I can't tell you exactly the timeframes involved but unpublished hubs actually go up in hubscore for a while. If they are waiting there too long the hubscore goes right down. I'd say it's fine to keep them unpublished for 3 -4 weeks max and in fact it may be beneficial.
Some of my hubs have been 'in the works' for months, as I gather pictures and write. It makes no difference.
you can keep a hub unpublished as long as you want. The score will stay low so long as there is no content. If the hub has some text, videos, pictures etc and sits unpublished however, the score will rise. Many even consider this period something like a 'ripening' period for hubs.
It doesn't matter how many you have unpublished though the more quality hubs you do publish, the higher your HubScore will climb

I thought I knew the answer to this question. But something interesting happened in the last week which I found it hard to explain. I'd be interested to hear opinions.I have a hub which is nine months old and had just reached 250-300 hits per day.I was experimenting to see how many tags I could use...

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 consider?

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 am wondering why that happens and if it is any indication of how good the hub...

Hi, I am just wondering, I started a hub just so that I wouldn't forget the topic I was writing on, but i didnt have enough time to finish it, so I left it unpublished. Now, a day later the score of the hub has gone down! Why is this? Will it effect my author score? Should I just publish then...

Its funny to me that a new 1400+ word hub is still low in ranking than an unpublished hub...

I have noticed that hubs are being moderated before the are published, and are being voted down when they are incomplete.I have started writing my hubs straight into the capsules, but I'm getting moderated before they are completed. I am saving as I go so I don't lose anything, but they remain...
