I just published a hub, but I noticed that just before I published, it already had 25 views. Where do those views come from? What concerns me is that those views obviously happened while the hub was still in development. Do they contribute to the hubscore? It wouldn't make sense to evaluate a hub before the author says it's ready.
They are your views, when you click to write it.
Melissa A Smith is right. Hubpages counts your own views. This means that each time you go to edit your hub and you load the page with the hub on it. Hubpages counts it as a view. So, if you have gone to the hub 25 times, the view count will say 25 even though your hub may not even be public.
Thanks, Melissa and techhubmaster. A simple explanation, but one that hadn't occurred to me.
More than likely it is the souls of hubbers who have been cast out by management and now haunt the servers.
They also leave nonsense comments like 'great hub, voted up'.
Hahaha! Wow, I really chuckled at Will's comment. A fine example of humorous sarcasm.

For the very first time (that I am aware of) I crossed the 500 reads in one day threshold. In about a week, I'll cross the 10,000 read barrier for one hub. Not too bad for a very part-time hubber.

I know that this is the most asked question here, but I'd still really appreciate it if anybody answered.I've been on Hubpages for about 6 months now, and I've just published my 7th Hub, and I'm starting to write a few...

I'm approaching 4000 - will likely hit that within 24 hours!
