Hi all. A newbie to hubpages so please be gentle!
I'm trying to work out a rough idea as to how hubpages work.
Example - I have a couple of hubs that I took a while to publish (few weeks). So as no visitors etc I'm guessing the score began to fall away.
I published the first hub with a score of 42 which is now starting to go back up in terms of score.
But heres the weird thing I don't get. A second hub with no info on it yet, is unpublished and has moved UP to a score of 58?!
Can anyone shed any light?
Writing about forex isn't the best thing for a newbie to do here, especially if you're linking to clickbank products.
Individual hubscore is reliant on many factors but the exact algorithm is not shared. Here's an overview: http://hubpages.com/faq/#hubscorecalc
Sometimes an unpublished hub's score it quite high - it seems to depend on the value of the main keyphrase in terms of traffic potential, but that is only speculation!
P.S. there's nothing wrong with monetizing with clickbank products (unless you are linking to the same one across a high % of your hubs.)

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?

Sometimes when I have ideas for hubs, I "start a hub" and sometimes finish it later or just let it sit there for a while. Maybe I should just write down my hub ideas instead. Does it hurt my hub scores or...

I'm thinking the answer is probably yes?If you have hubs that have been deemed "not featured", for one reason or another, will that factor into lowering your overall score/rating as a HubPages member? ...
