If I wait a few days before publishing my Hub, will it receive a higher Hub score when published.
If so, why is this the case?
I don't know if it will increase or decrease (mostly increase) but why in the world would you even bother about the score?? The score isn't going to give you traffic or get you a better rank on search engines!
Then why waste time? - not time but days!!
Publish your hub THEN wait for the score to increase. This will be the case provided you have a quality hub. Publish original content and make use of different capsules.
I've noticed that my hub scores tend to rise if my hubs stay in the draft stage for a few days while I work on them, but I think that has more to do with the fact that I am using that time to improve the content than that they are just getting older.
Lobobrandon and others, thanks for the response, but I believe Hub score does give you a better rank on search engines.
Yes, it does.
When you first create a Hub, HubPages takes time to assess it and assign it an accurate score. So if you give it time to "mature" before you publish, you've given the HubPages algorithm time to take a look.
However, it doesn't really matter because having a higher HubScore doesn't give it any greater visibility on HP or help it in the Google rankings, so you may as well publish right away.
