    Unpublished hub vs published hub...

    I have an unpublished hub with a higher ranking than one of my published hubs. How does that work? I got a good laugh out of it though.

    You Unpublished hub may have good title and long tail content that is why it got initial high score....

    That is interesting since I thought no one could view your hub until you published it.

    It depends on the words in the title: if the words are uncommonly used words they receive a higher score than if the words are common.

    Something like your URL title view of your hub (the title looks like; the-title-looks-like-this). Each word is assigned a score based on commonalities with key words SEO. After publication is depends on the number of visitors.

    Its an interesting question for I have 2 unpublished and they get viewed everyday. One gets better traffic than one of my published ones

    I've been wondering this as well - is it counting your own views of the hub somehow? Would love to hear an answer if you figure it out!

    I would suspect the moderators. I have written a couple of hubs on the hubs sight, and the scores changed before I published them. So I believe the moderators are checking my hubs while I'm writing them.
    On the other hand, sometimes I write my stories offline, & then transfer & publish them to the new hub at the same time. When I do that, the first few days are pretty rough on the hubs score.
    In other words, the moderators have access to our hubs before they're published. Their clicks count too.

    Even when your hub is unpublished it can still be crawled be the search engines, that helps the score go up. Letting a hub age is always best for higher ranking.

    I've wondered about this too, though it is possible that key words and the title have a bearing on it.

    So, if it counts moderators clicks, is it also counting our (the authors) clicks used to edit the hub. and do those stay in the tally for total page views?

    Your hubscore also depend on the Title and topic. The system scores you based on how unique your title is and on a topic that has not been extensively covered.

    Even from my earliest efforts I have tended to have quite good hub scores before publishing.

    Certainly back when I first started I think and hope this can only be because I spent a lot of time revisiting, modifying, adding content and rearranging before publication. I did so with the best of intentions which was to try to make my hubs as presentable and readable as possible, so I think extra effort in writing a page is rewarded by HubPages.

    Having said that, I would hope that scores are not deliberately and artificially bumped up by hubbers constantly revisiting their pages, just for the sole purpose of creating artificially high viewing figures.
