Why does my unpublished hub have 10 views on it and the score started at 45...
The views are your's, from the computer(s) in which you have viewed it.
The score is due to your own Hub Karma and however long the Hub has been sitting there, unpublished.
It's hard to say exactly why it goes up or down, but I suspect that the topic may be less popular than say, "free mafia wars credits" or something like that. I believe it factors into the points.
I have been researching this for well over three months and it appears that HP gives each word in the tittle a score based on the key words rate of search.
If the title has common words the score is lower, if the title has uncommon words then the score is higher; it appears to be based solely on the competition of certain key words/search engine SEO. It also depends on how many hubs with similar key words/topic have been previously published.
After the hub is published, then the score fluctuates depending on the number of visitors plus the key words SEO.
Again this is based on my own research with my own titles.

The question is why is it so slow moving up with its score? It has lots of comments!

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...

I have a written hub that I have not set to publish yet, and it even says that it is unpublished only I can see it. But when I got into my statistics graph and look at the number of views each one of my hubs has had so...
