Ok, here's an interesting puzzle:
Today, I was replying to a comment on one of my hubs. On the way to the bottom of the screen to do so, I noticed in the "next" section one of my other hubs (unrelated topic) that is not yet even published. It's still waiting in the wings!
Is this something visible to everyone? They may click on that and get a "not published" advisory, or are such hubs shown only to the hub author? I'm confused.
I got snuckered on this myself awhile back. You are right, only the author sees it.
It's all so confusing, isn't it. My first few hubs were started and left unpublished until I had time to complete them.. I just liked seeing them in the list. Sometimes they had 15 views before I even published. ( I don't know what "views" means when the hub is unpublished.) Now I do the hub offline in Word, and when it's done, I cut and paste into the template, and don't stop until I am finished and published.
I noticed that I had "views" on my unpublished hubs, but I assumed that it was when I pulled it up to work on it. Maybe I'd better reconsider.
This might happen when you have published and unpublished hubs that are orphans. I try to make sure that I put each of my published hubs into a group so this doesn't happen.
Every time you clicked on a hub to work on it, that click was counted as a "view".
When a hub has been published, "views" you and visitors to the hub. Before a hub has been published, only your views are counted. Every time you click on a hub to work on it, that counts as a "view".
Thanks Oldroses. so I guess no harm done if I start a hub and leave off for a few days. as I said, so confusing.
Sorry, that should be "views" include you and visitors to the hub.

I know that our own views are counted on the stats page but I have not opened this hub to edit it today and yet I can see that I have had four visits!

Why is it that one of my hubs has 7 views even though I am still working on it?

We need an indication of what link is causing this error.Either that, or a list of sites that are prohibited. Expecting us to go through every link HOPING that we find the offending link is a waste of our time.This kind...

One of my game guides gets 100 views a week, even though the game came out in 2014. When I wrote it, I didn't really think it'd do as well as it is. Have any of your articles done surprisingly well?

Sometimes when I have ideas for hubs, I "start a hub" and sometimes finish it later or just let it sit there for a while. Maybe I should just write down my hub ideas instead. Does it hurt my hub scores or...
