Is there any benefit of allowing a hub to stay unpublished for a few days?
Even if it is ready to be published? Just because we wish to have a higher hub score when it is published!
I never publish on a weekend always at the start of the week and never on Thursday or Fridays. If you leave it until the start of the week you have better chance on initial traffic rate
My hubs usually sit for a few days, especially if they are longer and require research. When I think it is finished I often wait overnight so I can proof with fresh eyes before I publish. I don't think I could resist much longer than that, so I don't let them sit unpublished for the higher score, but it does happen.
When you don't publish a Hub right away, and let it sit for a week, it will give the HubPages algorithms time to look at it and evaluate it. And you can edit it based on what you are seeing.
By waiting a bit, you can often have your Hub publish with an initial score in the 60s-70s instead of in the 40s-50s. I've even gotten some unpublished Hubs up into the lower 80s before publishing.
Wow! never new this secret. Thanks Rajan for asking this question.
Interesting, I did not know this either!
That's new to me too, Relache. Would this rate the hub higher up in the search results?
While it is true that you will get initial traffic on your hub on the first few days from Hubpages, I'm not sure whether it really makes a difference when you publish. Most of my Hubs seem to get about 25-60 views from HubPages in the first 2 days or so. I think the difference is not the time published but rather whether the subject matter is interesting to Hubbers.

I recently got my lowest score ever for a book review on Kate Chopin's novel, The Awakening.Anyone want to give me some feedback? Usually my scores start around 50 and go up as I construct the hub.The entire review is my original writing. I didn't copy any text.

When you publish a hub, it is normally listed under hub activity and a notification is sent via email to all interested parties. Now, when you unpublish that hub, finish re-editing and then republish it (keeping the original title intact), will it appear in the hub activity? Also, will...

My hub was not violating any rules. I have checked. I, personally unpublished it (accidentally, meant to hit edit) and then published it again. It says it was published but no one outside can read it, just keeps coming up with "This article was unpublished". Is there a waiting period...

Back in November I wrote a novel has part of NaNoWriMo. Is there anyone else in the same boat? If so, what do you plan on doing with your unpublished novel?Also I am possibly interested in either Beta readers or novel swaps and thought that the HubPages community could be possibly a good place to...

How many hubs do you have tucked away unpublished?I tend to work on several hubs at once and go back and fix and redo and edit them over several days, maybe even weeks before I publish. Other times I just blast through a hub and post it. What do you do? What is your workflow like?
