How are views measured

    I have just published my first hub and for the first day I had 13 views. What seemed weird to me was that 12 of them were from my own country (Albania). I thought that probably my visits to my own hub are counted as well. Is this the case? If yes how can this be avoided.

    Thanks in advance.

      Hello, yes, your own views are included in the HubPages stats.

        Is there anyway of not counting them because it is so confusing especially when you have few hubs and few visits.

          You cannot filter out your own views in the HubPages stats. However, Google Analytics has a filter that you can set to ignore any views from your own IP address. This provides many more and more comprehensive statistics reports.

            Thanks for the advice but I have used Google Analytics before and I have seen that it shows too many fake clicks. It distorts the results for me.
