I have 4 hubs, not yet published in any way. They are still in rough draft form and/or awaiting research, with only a title in place.
Oddly, they all have hub scores, and those scores vary!
Curious, how a not-yet-published hub can already have a score of any level.
I'm not complaining...I'm just wondering if anyone knows why this is so...you see, I may be in my 60's, but I've never outgrown the "why" stage. ;-)
I actually do not know ( - perhaps the algorithm used maybe assuming your failure to publish the hubs is because you’re doing a very serious research which is good).
I am in my 80's and still want to know why. Even though I have been told that each time we go in to edit an unpublished Hub it uses that as a view. I still don't know why that is myself.
Yes, that is how it is my highest unpublished hub (never published) is at 68 and my lowest is at present at 48.
I pretend it is Hubpages sending me subliminal messages as to which will prove more popular or maybe most profitable to them.
To me they (the unpublished hubs Hubscores) seem to be influenced by seasonal factors, but that may just be my wild imagination.

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 overall hubber score to have those unfinished hubs (often with just titles) sitting...

I have a hub that I merely typed a title for and then deleted it... I never wrote a word on the hub...My statistics are showing that it is being read and the score for it is rising... It was never even published...What the Heck???

I took a hiatus for awhile from Hub Pages! However, in the past week or so, I have added new hubs participated in forums, asked a question or two, participated with the Hub Hopper, have read some Hubs, yet my Hubber Score is lower than it was when I was doing nothing. I don't get it!

I have 3 hub that are not published yet. The thing is their scores are going up. Two of them are in the 60's and the third that was posted saved unpublished 2 days ago is at 55 with 4 views? How is this possible?

When I published a hub a couple of weeks ago it reached a score of 96. Wow! I almost convinced myself that I had finally got it right! Wrong! Two weeks later the hub now has a score of 88! What should I read into that? Most people say that one should not concern...

I'd like to suggest we get rid of Hubber Score - and perhaps even Hub Scores. They:- are constantly misunderstood;- cause a lot of upset and grief in the forums; and- encourage newbie Hubbers to direct their efforts in entirely wrong directionsFor instance, I've known newbie Hubbers stop...
