I'm working on my first hub, which I have yet to publish. I've noticed though, that my editing previews count as views, and that the hubscore has already dropped from the initial 50 to an instable 26.
I am confused.
Welcome to hubpages Pumpapa.
Hub scores will go up and down and there is no definitive answear to your dilema... Once you have published your hub, in time, it the score will go up depending on the quality and originality of the content..that being said people have complained that there "high score" hub has dropped but could be due to a number of things..
Good luck on your 1st hub, hopefully soon you will be here to help fellow new hubbers.
I have also noticed that while I am working on a hub if I save it once or twice and come back to it the score typically drops down to 36 or so from the standard 50. So you are not the only one experiencing this.
I have been trying to create my hub pages now in one sitting without saving it to come back later. That way when they are published they start out as a 50.
Either way if you have original content and have not copied articles or text from anywhere and you have enough modules and text on your hub page the score will go up no matter what.
Hub scores of course entail a lot of factors and we don't know the secret mix. However traffic, original content, and a hub that is updated and has a lot of components to it will always achieve better scores.

I just saw a hub(not mine) that has score 43 in 15 minutes of publishing. Normally it's 50 when getting published...Right?Is there a known reason for hubscore to come suddenly down?

Would you recommend waiting for hubscore to rise before publishing or just publishing when finished?I've noticed that my unpublished hubs' hubscore tends to rise over time, even if there are no edits. Does it matter what the original publishing score is? Thanks.

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")....
