What's the theory on writing a hub and letting it sit before publishing it. Myth or fact?
Allowing a hub to sit unpublished for a while can help its hubscore rise from the default if your SEO is good, it doesn't harm the hub.
I sometimes wait, more often I have some work left to do on a hub and leave it unpublished for a time while I do some editing.
Sometimes I just publish. It is a matter of personal taste, but there is some fact to seeing an unpublished hubs, hubscore rise.
After a week or two however after publishing there is little difference in hubscore variations for hubs which have been held back and those which are published and edited live.
It doesn't really give you a boost or anything important. Yes, the hubscore will go up, but Google doesn't see hubscores.
If you publish it now instead of two weeks from now, that's two extra weeks where Google has a chance to build up traffic to it.

Would you recommend waiting for hubscore to rise before publishing or just publishing when finished?I've noticed that my unpublished hubs' hubscore tends to rise over time, even if there are no edits. Does it matter what the original publishing score is? Thanks.

Do you ever let your Hubs sit unpublished for a day or two before publishing them?

This is a common problem. Contact email@example.comEdit: I just took a look at your profile, and it is, essentially, just an advert for your business. HubPages is a site for writers, not a place to promote your business, so you might want to rethink whether this is a suitable platform for you.
