Just wondering if the author's own visits count in the stats.
I hope not, as I'd like to think the numbers show 'real' people. Obviously when I'm making a new hubpage I look at it quite a few times, both in edit and preview mode. I also go back and check on them from time to time when I'm thinking about changing them. Do these visits count?
Yep, I'm pretty sure they do. I usually take a single check of a new hub then try to stay away from unless some editing needs doing.
I could be wrong, and would love to be corrected
I was beginning to suspect that my own visits do count.
In the grand scheme of things a few visits from yourself will pale in significance to having thousands and hopefully hundreds of thousands of pageviews.
I think they do, at least some times. Perhaps the algorithm includes them occasionally.

If an Editbot visits your pages are these visits included in our Stats. I wonder if anyone else has seen a big increase in traffic since the stats page became inundated with little red exclamation marks?

I have a feature request. When I'm logged in and I visit my own page, I don't want that to show up as a pageview under myAccount. Is there anyway to make this happen? I suppose as your hub gets more...

How can I exclude my own visits from showing in Hub Traffic Statistics?And is Google Analytics counting my own visits? I think it is. Can I somehow set it to NOT count them?

Can you confirm this relationship and how the data is affected by 60:40 sharing.Recently my analytics visits data has flattened out but the ad impressions still shows the prominent weekly cycle (30% down on weekends)....

We've had a problem on our primary stats machine this morning. We're working on getting it fixed. In the mean time, you won't be able to access the statistics and traffic graphs for individual hubs.
