I apologize if this has been asked (many) times before.
Because I'm used to blogging, I've started making drafts of hubs without the plan to publish them immediately. But after doing so, the hubscore goes below 50, even as low as 45, before I publish the hub.
Should I make drafts in a separate program? Why do my hubs get a score before they are published?
It has, and that's all right. The fluctuations you see are normal and nothing to be concerned about. Scores may also rise prior to publication. Your own pageviews, including editing, are counted. Why it does go down is hard to tell, but something many have experienced. Please proceed undeterred.
My advice would be, don't worry about hubscore, at all, it is just a number and does not really affect very much!
This happens to me too, and like the others have said, learn to ignore it! In the end, the hubscore will rise to where it naturally needs to be!

Do you personally have someone proofread a Hub before publishing, or do you just put it out there?I struggle with this because part of me realizes that no matter how careful you are and how good a writer you are, you can easily overlook errors in your own writing. At the same time, I don't always...

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you recommend waiting for hubscore to rise before publishing or just publishing when finished?I've noticed that my unpublished hubs' hubscore tends to rise over time, even if there are no edits.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.

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?
