Traffic Rising on Unpublished hubs?

    Is this happening to anyone else? I clicked on my stats page and see a couple unpublished hubs have the red arrow by them.

      They could be your clicks on the hub,but yes I have seen this happen before. Sorry I was not able to figure out how someone was reading my unpublished hub but they were.

      You visits/views to your Hub are recorded while it is not published.

        I already said that earlier Matthew, but bat115 says he hasn't visited his unpublished hubs in over a year, yet they are showing views. I can't explain that, can you?

    This happens when you visit your own unpublished Hub, your views count too smile

      But they are hubs I have not viewed in a year or so.

        I really can't explain that then, unless for some reason staff took a look which would be unusual/unlikely on an unpublished hub.

        I am having troubles, getting comments and visits to my hubs; for some reason, not sure why?

    I'm still not very familiar with the workings of hubpages but I suspect it has something to do with hub hopping that is helping unpublished hubbers publish work, I think!

      You don't see unpublished hubs when Hubhopping so it can't be that.

        I try to publish all of my hubs; unless they need more work done on them, I guess I need to pay more attention to the forums...

          Sometimes it takes several days to write a hub, so you obviously don't publish it until it is completed. Also people often unpublish Hubs they are thinking of moving elsewhere. I have even been known to come up with a list of titles and save them as unpublished hubs before gradually working my way through them writing each one and publishing it. There are lots of unpublished hubs out there for all kinds of reasons, but they definitely don't get seen by the Hubhopper until they are published. Hope this helps smile

    MIsty: Maybe the hubs are in idle, not unpublished.  If in idle, and hub has been promoted on FB, Twitter, PIng sites, etc, yep, they will come up since url is available.  Also, you can go to cached pages with the url and find even deleted articles.

      You could be right, but I can only go on what the posters said, and they said the hubs were unpublished. As for a cached version of a deleted hub, well that would be available for a short while, but they do vanish within weeks (normally), so it is very unlikely this is the case by the sound of the earlier posts (no-one said their hubs were deleted, and if they were they would only have been visible on their account for 24 hours before vanishing completely apart from the cached versions, this means it would have been impossible for them to see views that weren't real).

        No, they are not in idle, they have never been published at all.  Thanks everyone for your answers.
