Why do unpublished hubs score continue to rise?

    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?

      Some may rise through a lack of gravity. lol

      Seriously though, I do let mine "fester" a while before I publish them sometimes and see the odd 65 or so score before publishing.

        Is there a benefit to doing that?

          Also, why does my personal hub score increase substantially while I sleep?

            You must have good karma.

              Cute! I'd much rather have good dreams. It's way past my bedtime and hubpages has me up again. Better get to sleep soon.

          Most of us believe there is, but it may just be an old wives' tale!

      Hubscore is a combination of factors based on age, views, comments, up/down votes, reactions, and so on. Age does appear to be a factor, and it's not from publication date, but creation date.

      Hubscores are a complete mystery to me. My overall score was 83 yesterday, and today it's sitting at 88. My highest-rated hub was 87 yesterday, and now it's 79, which is kinda depressing.

        I read some of your hubs, and their great. I plan on reading more tomorrow. Just keep going. I see that we are both fairly new at this. Maybe we can expand our horizons together as we go through this hubpages journey together.

          I just read your hub on blessing children. Seems you write on a variety of topics. That seems like it can only be a good thing. Hoping lots of luck for both of us smile

            I am writing about a lot of things because I'm trying to find out who I am and what I can write about best. I have not written much before. I have always wanted to write, but found the idea of writing a book overwhelming. So I am excited to try alot of different topics. I guess you could say that I am spreading my wings a bit.

    It seems to me that the scores of your other hubs influence the score so it will rise a bit even without traffic.

    I had a couple of my hubs unpublished sometime ago...and the scores plummeted rapidly from 80 - 59 in 4 four days ..so this is news to me.. Good for you smile

      I'm talking about ones that have never been published. Although the one that I had unpublished that I need to rewrite is also rising. Thanks for the imput everyone.

    'Lack of Gravity' is the only sensible and logical reason for it =P

    These hub scores and the author-scores are a mystery to me. They never work as expected. I'm copying my post which I just made on another forum about hub scores (M too lazy to re-write it again!)

    "When I suspended my work at hubpages for a couple of months, my author score was still hovering around 78-85 (the same when I was working being a prolific person).

    One of my hubs is on google's no.3 ranking (page 1); it daily brings me a pretty decent amount of traffic, and is REALLY WELL WRITTEN. But it is usually below in the score than some of the hubs that are not craps and not even in the 25 pages of google and other search engines such as Yahoo and Bing!"

    That's how it works! roll

      Thanks Hunbbel Meer. I'll settle for the lack of gravity theory!

    I think one reason might be , we owner opens that hub again and again keep on writing, that may increases the score..not sure though.
