    Why does an unpublished hub have a hubscore?

    Does anyone know why my unpublished hub that I am still working on has a score already?  I am new to HubPages and still trying to figure it out.

    Actually Hub score is the measure of quality of your publishing hubs. The score you noticed is the starting Hubscore about the topic you writing about and it will be fluctuating. You will get an idea about Hubscore and Hubberscore by visiting the learning center, please go through this link

    The real mystery is why does the score increase and decrease while unpublished? My theory is that any essay that follows the rules, has some semblence of a structure, and does not have too many grammatical errors will automatically float around with a score of between 50 and 80. Higher scores probably require high volume of traffic, positive feedback, and lots of comments. But I don't know and I don't get it. I'm just glad I can go back and edit.

    There are two factors going on with an unpublished hub. One is that the quality of what is written in the text and the uniqueness of your title according to Google bots will affect how high the score is. That aspect is easy to follow.

    However, unpublished hubs will automatically go up and down over time, and it is unclear why this happens. There seems to be some mechanism which randomly  does this. Once a hub is published, how well it does in traffic will affect the hub score and nothing is random anymore.

    Do not worry about the score of your unpublished hubs until you are ready to publish them. They should have a score of at least 45 before you publish them.
