Soooo I think I may have figured out why my hubber score tanked. One of my unpublished hubs published somehow.
I am fairly certain I did not do it as I hadn't even been in it since I created it 2 months ago. It had no content.
So has anyone heard of spontaneous publishing?
I ended up deleting the hub altogether because the steps I was given to return to unpublished status just republished it again.
I wish all my hubs would spontaneously publish. Then I would have more hubs. For some dang reason, HubPages requires me to actually write them myself.
As to your hub, you can unpublish it if you want.
Having been here for three years, I've only had a Hub publish when I hit the publish button. It is pretty easy to hit the button to publish instead of saving unpublished.
At least this site has an unpublish feature so you can take it back down and fix or finish it.
I'm thinking bug because I can't unpublish it, only delete it. If I try to unpublish, it ends up publishing.
I can't completely rule out user error, but with the inability to unpublish, I'm leaning toward it being not me.
Hopefully it is just me and a random glitch that will never happen again. The Hub Gods willing.
I've had it happen to me, but it didn't even offer the save unpublished option, of course it warned me that they were experiencing problems on the website, but I was forced into the option of publish or lose all work. Way the article turned out, wished I chosen the lose all work option!
Ok, I thought it was just me. Thought maybe i hit the wrong button when saving and leaving it for the day. I came back the next day to comments on my unfinished hub!! It only had a few videos on it!! At least it has happened to others and maybe I'm not crazy hehe

I have recently begun to completely revamp my hubs. I am publishing several revamped hubs per day. Can this have a negative effect on my HP profile score, Google rankings etc.??

When you publish a hub, it is normally listed under hub activity and a notification is sent via email to all interested parties. Now, when you unpublish that hub, finish re-editing and then republish it (keeping the original title intact), will it appear in the hub activity? Also, will...

Is there a way to unpublish your hub? (then publish again in 3 months time?I`m entering a few poetry contests, and neither enteries can be previously published online: website, nor even blogs.

I have this bad habit of hitting publish instead of save unpublished when I'm writing a new article and am in a hurry. I just did it with a new Hemingway article that had the title, meta description and one picture - no text! Thank goodness for unpublish!

I just finished editing a new hub and was ready to publish it, but the publish now icon is not at the top of the hub. What can I do to correct this?

Okay,Can a hub be cancelled? Also, when we write about a topic...are we to start a new hub for this new topic that we are writing about? Thanks.
