Hub-score keeps rising and the hub is still unpublished
How comes I have this hub I am still working on so it has been unpublished for a week or so yet the score on it keeps rising every day?
3 things possible-
1) Your own views are counted as hub-views
2) HubPages staffs view your hubs
3) HubPages is full of ghosts
Lastly, hub-views, in general, do not accord with reality - it inflates the numbers.
I agree with PhenomWriter--the ghost thing. :-)
I've noticed that HubScores rise over time, too; in fact, when I first joined, I remember reading something someone posted about intentionally letting a Hub "sit" unpublished for a while to see where the score goes, and waiting until it's higher to publish. I don't know why, but apparently it's normal.

How does Hubpages decide the score of my hub before I've even published it?If the answer to this is somewhere in Hubpage tutorials, my apologies for asking! I'm just confused
