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.

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?
