    Hub climbing before published?

    How is it possible for my hub to begin to climb in the ratings before it's published.  I have one that's already at 57 but isn't published yet.

    Hubs just do this. If you wait a little while it will climb even higher.

    Each time you log in and out to edit the hubscore begins to rise. It happens to me all the time. I do not finish a hub in one sitting.

    piggybacking on missolive's answer, your page views are counted in your hub stats, and traffic is one of the factors that increases (or decreases) your hubscore. I had 6 page views before I even published a hub and wondered how this could be; then I realized I'd previewed it several times during the writing process.

    That makes sense.  Thanks for the data! I'll find something else to be confused about now.

    I had no idea that logging in and out caused the hub stats to increase. That's very interesting. Thanks.
