That is something that I wonder myself. I am going to watch fo this answer.
That is normal. HubPages keeps computing the HubScore of a hub even for unpublished hubs. If you keep improving your hub, the HubScore will go up. That will happen if you add links, tags or any other content.
The value of the keyword that you use has a part to play in this ,
if you use well researched keywords even when you have typed the hub Title in and left it you will see your hubscore moving upward.
You're scores for individual hubs will never, ever stop changing. They might change several times a day, even. You're personal score is more steady, but it could change more than once during the course of a single day as well.
Actually I've made just the title and came back two or three days later to do some work on the empty hub and the score had raised at least 6 or 7 points! The hubs keep rising! It really doesn't have anything to do with content until you publish it! It has to do with visits! The more you click on it... the more it will go up.. that I know for a fact! I noticed the more I went in there to work on it... such as in and out during a period of time doing work and have to stop and save and come back... it would go up even more!
What I do is decide what I'm going to work on... make the titles and work on the hubs over a few days... sometimes i will have 5 or 6 at any given time... but I only publish one a day! By the time I publish one the score is already above 60... sometimes higher depending on how long it takes me to finish 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 consider?

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...

My hubscore is usually from 96 at its lowest to 100 at its best but today it has dropped down to 89 and then to 88 while I have been on the site! This is worrying, especially considering that I posted a new hub last night and thought my score would go up not down!

You can see it at the bottom of the score column on the my account page. Mine is 69.

Just puzzled: How can an unpublished hub attain a higher score than any published hub? (The published hubs with lower scores must be pretty bad!)
