Do you ever let your Hubs sit unpublished for a day or two before publishing them?
I always let them sit for at least a day. If I write something, and immediately read through it my brain just glosses over mistakes and weird sentences without catching them. I guess because it's so fresh in my mind I know what I wanted to say, even if that's not exactly what I wrote. After a day or two I can step back and read it with a fresh perspective.
Most of the time yes.
But, if it is something that I'm inspired to write I usually post it right away. I have a picture in my head already of what I want to post. It feels like sometimes the words just flow. If I'm not satisfied I just know. So, I will leave it, come back and add to it or delete from it. One thing I don't think I do enough of, is tweaking it.
As I get ideas I just start a hub and keep it unfinished, until I'm inspired to complete it and publish it. Most of my hubs are written in this way.
I am curious as to whether a hub that sits unpublished for a couple of days might receive a higher score than if published right away.

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?

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 If they sit unpublished, it seems the score will rise.So do you go...

Along with the Google effect lately I've seen a lot of forum posts about spam, and every time I hub hop it is obvious that there is a lot submitted here of both spam and simply substandard hubs.I would suggest that the following rules apply to the first 5 (or 10 or 20?) hubs by any new...

Why do so many hubbers not bother to proof-read their hubs before publishing them?I have read some shocking hubs from top-ranking hubbers and the mind boggles as to how they manage to get up so high in the rankings. Honestly some of them sound like 12 year olds. Their grammar and spelling are...

I'm not knocking anybody (or maybe I am) but I have seen several "Hubs" that transferred from Squidoo that are composed of nothing more than very thin content and a whole bunch of merchandising links (and even one lady who pimped her own Etsy page multiple times in her "Hub")....
