I have a few unpublished and unwritten hubs on my statistics page. Their score goes down even though they are not published. Some are as low as 47 and I don't understand why? I do not wish to write about the unfinished topics so I don't really want to keep them up, edit, or publish them.
Is there a way to delete these unpublished and unwritten hubs entirely so they don't effect my HubScore?
unpublished hubs dont affect authorscore anyway.
To delete... go to edit on the individual hub and you will see a delete icon on the top of page. Press that and all is done.
Why dont you just improve your unpublished and publish them?
There is no delete icon... I don't want to publish them because all they are are titles. I've already published the same hubs with different titles, so what would be the point of me redoing the same hub? :lol
From your my account page click on the title of the hub that you want to delete and then you should see a delete button between "stats" and "start a new hub" at the top of the page. Click delete, confirm, and the hub should be gone completely within 24 hours.
Uncompleted or unpublished hubs are irrelevant. The Hubscore goes down because there is no traffic to it, including YOU going to it.
The score only goes up with traffic.
There is no reason to delete hubs. Unpublish, fix and re-publish would be the way to go.
My HubScore just went down another point AS I was sitting here.
I have multiple hubs, which attack a specific problem via different methodologies. So, I have different written content, but leads back to one solid point.
I hope that helped.
Btw- I've got hubs that I keep re-working and re-working. I've unpublished them, so as to work on them, beyond just the edit function. I've left them off for a couple days. It did affect my hubscore, because they were no longer published.
But, when I re-published them, my hubscore started to go back up, but took like 4 days.

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?

Just puzzled: How can an unpublished hub attain a higher score than any published hub? (The published hubs with lower scores must be pretty bad!)

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...

I have searched the help and looked everywhere on the editing page, but cannot figure out how to delete a hub. I created a duplicate (because I couldn't figure out how to get back the the first one I created). Now I would like to delete the unpublished one.
