Why makes the score of unpublished hubs change?
One of my old hubs that I didn't like at all was closed for repairing but I've noticed that its score is changing every day although nobody else can see it.
By the way, the score is rising without being even visited by me! Can someone explain this to me?
It appears to be based on the strength of the words in the title.
To the HP filters a title like: Colorful Images of Birds is seen as colorful-images-of-birds. Each word is this title is common and each word is assigned a value. If however the title were "Colorful Images of Quetzalcoatl Birds" the same filters would see it as:colorful-images-of-Quetzalcoatl-birds, because at leas one word is rare and its value higher the starting pre-publication score would also be higher. Another factor is how many titles with the same or very similar words have been previously published. Even if the hub has not been published, HP will look at the number of visits for a pre-determinate period of time, and will count your own visits. Leave an unpublished hub alone for some time and you will see the scores start to go down.
At least this is what I have been able to gather after closely monitoring my hubs for three months.

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 I have a few unpublished hubs with little to no content in them, and the thing is, one of these hubs outranks one of my published hubs!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

Sometimes when I have ideas for hubs, I "start a hub" and sometimes finish it later or just let it sit there for a while. Maybe I should just write down my hub ideas instead. Does it hurt my hub scores or overall hubber score to have those unfinished hubs (often with just titles) sitting...

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?

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!

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...

Obviously there is no traffic since it is not published. And is it beneficial to let them sit and hibernate until their numbers are really up before publishing?
