How does an unpublished up get viewed?
I have an unpublished hub that I have not viewed that has increased in score and shows views. How is this possible?
Not sure about the score, but I have observed the same thing with one of my own unpublished hubs. It went from a 48 to a 60 while just sitting there unpublished.
Concerning the page views it appears every time you visit your own page it counts as a page view. If you check your stats for the source of traffic it will tell you how much traffic came directly from your own home page.
I have only been on HP less than two months so I may not be the expert to answer this.
For unpublished hubs, I believe the views are yours when you work on or edit it. They appear to carry over when you publish the hub. That doesn't make sense to me why HP would do that.
I'm not sure if anyone understands hubscore. The hubscore of all of my hubs is always going up and down. A question by experienced hubbers is what to do with old hubs with low hubscores. Some advocate deleting them, some advocate buffing them up, some advocate do nothing.
One experienced hubber recommended letting your hub set unpublished for awhile for the very reason that the score goes up! Maybe hubscores are like bread, you have to let them set for awhile as they rise or they may be like fine wine, they get better with age. But, even with bread and wine, if you let them set too long, the bread gets stale and the wine turns to vinegar.

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?

I recently published another hub but was not quite finished yesterday and shouldn't have been viewed by anyone till it was 100% done. It is now done but I'm wondering why it was allowed to be viewed before I was finished publishing it??

I thought I knew the answer to this question. But something interesting happened in the last week which I found it hard to explain. I'd be interested to hear opinions.I have a hub which is nine months old and had just reached 250-300 hits per day.I was experimenting to see how many tags I could use...

Obviously there is no traffic since it is not published. And is it beneficial to let them sit and hibernate until their numbers are really up before publishing?
