Being experienced here, I been Hubbing for a long time. I have realized I don't know a few things though that I want to clarify.
1.If I make a Hub with title and URL now, and don't publish it or add content, but wait a month or two then fill it out, will the starting score when I hit "publish" be lower then 49-51? (will I be penalized for not publishing the day of creation like I have been)
2.If I write Hubs ready to publish, but hold off for whatever reasons I can think of, will it effect my overall Hubscore? (Will my Hubber score be penalized for having unpublished hubs)
3.Does your Hubscore get effected by keeping Hubs that cannot be published unpublished? A good example is one labeled overly promotional, and it currently have a score of 34, is that factoring in with all the rest effecting them? Should these be deleted?
Thanks for taking the time to answer my questions,
Yes, it will be. But it will increase according to the quality of the hub, traffic and whatever else is affects the secret herbs and spices of the hubscore algorithm. Don't sweat it.
Maybe just a little. But it will find its own balance soon enough.
For me personally, only if you never intend fixing them up and publishing them.
1. Maybe. Most likely yes.
2. No. And you might be surprised just how high those unpublished Hubs can rank.
I have one that has been unpublished for about 2 weeks and the score is currently at 55.
I don't have the answers but thought the same things myself...
Also when i had an unpublished hub, it had numbers by it as if ppl were looking at it? how can ppl be looking at my unpublished hub when it is just that...unpublished?
Well, thanks UW for helping with one of the questions, does anyone have the answers out there? If not a Hubber, maybe a HubTeam member?
aaaaaa cute kitty with a big smile lol sorry I'm a sucker for animals hehehe

After 6 months on the site i've started the really wonder how many backlinks is a reasonable number to any hub, and really to a hub becoming successful? Or is it simply a lottery.What kind of figures do other hubbers consider?

Should I leave an unpublished hub unpublished if the score remains high?I unpublished a hub as I was not happy with it myself, but the score continues to remain high. I never intend to publish it in the future, and I know the score will eventually drop due to no views, but will leaving it...

This really isn't a problem, but rather something I am interested in finding out. I have a few unpublished hubs with little to no content in them, and the thing is, one of these hubs outranks one of my published hubs! I am wondering why that happens and if it is any indication of how good the hub...

Is there a benefit to waiting for a hubscore to come up before publishing?When we start writing hubs, they start with a score of 50. I noticed that my latest went down to 47 while I was still writing (a bad sign? I don't know). If they sit unpublished, it seems the score will rise.So do you go...

Hi there...I just published the hub below and am confused why the starting score is so much lower than other hubs. In comparison I took an extensive amount of time making sure to include tons of unique content,photos, videos, links,referrals....so I am so confused why it started at 46 when...

My hubscore is usually from 96 at its lowest to 100 at its best but today it has dropped down to 89 and then to 88 while I have been on the site! This is worrying, especially considering that I posted a new hub last night and thought my score would go up not down!
