I have done a search and could not find the answer on here. Can anyone inform me if google as well as other search engines count towards page views on my hubs when they are performing indexing?
thanks in advance!
As far as I know and to the best of my ability, Google has nothing to do with the page views except to record in on the Analytical excel page. The page views are a daily morale booster but as far as the earnings go, Google is more interested in the page viewers click on a Google Ad for monetization.
thanks's for your reply!
I hope that you are right and that google's web crawlers do not count towards the views that we see when we look under "my account" on here.
I am pretty sure that the bots don't count as visits. When I use AWStats on my website I am able to track the mask of persons visiting the site and Google's mask or the usual IPs I see on the forum don't show up in the stats
thank you, thank you! good to hear. Each time I view a hub, I count as a visit, right? The only reason why I'm thinking this is that I see 2 views on one of my unpublished hubs; obviously no one else can be viewing it. I sort of wish our views didn't count.
