Why does an unpublished article go from 50 to 68 and anything in between?
I have an article that I've had unpublished for a while for which I haven't finished planning. I notice its score fluctuates wildly despite me never clicking on it or changing it. It's got very few words in it as the plan is on paper on my desk. Thoughts?
When you publish a new article, it receive a initial score between 40-60 generally depend on you topic, content, media in the hub. Then it start fluctuating because of many factors like ratings f, feedback, traffic etc
Hub Score will never be steady, it will continue to fluctuate till it's on hubpages.
Thanks for the quick reply.
Ah, that explains the published articles. I did wonder - but I was really wondering about an empty, unpublished one!
Yes, you didn't published but it is auto-saved, you can see in your statistics page. Even if you have saved just title, it will show the score and it will fluctuate.
But why will it fluctuate if it's unpublished?

Like, say I have an unpublished Hum with zero content (just the tittle)... will it effect my author hub score or anything if I let it sit too long without finishing and publishing it or deleting it?
