Can moderators and administrators view hubs that have not yet been finished. One of my hubs that is in progress and not yet published, has already got a score of 70ish and had 19 views.
If you keep opening the hub to look at it or edit it, that counts as views.
It's not me viewing them, when I visit or edit a hub the views dont go up, other than the first visit, I just visited one again to be sure, and the views stayed at 19 all time views. It must be being visited by people other than me.
I've experienced that too. I was working on one last week and it had multiple views.
Then, I was surprised to see my hub had been flagged as substandard and was about to be flagged (or whatever the words are) and needed to be reviewed. It was still unpublished and very much a WIP.
The HubPages system automatically looks at the content and some of the warnings you see are auto-generated. If you get the substandard one, the system is most often telling you that there isn't enough written content which is determined by an algorithm that does a simple word count. This is separate from flagging, which is done by humans once a hub is published.
HubPages admin doesn't look at unpublished hubs unless you actually write to them and ask for a review before the Hub gets published.
I've noticed that as long as there's 400 words or more in text, the warning about flagging and being substandard generally goes away. It's always there if you save a hub without publishing it and there's not enough content yet. So add some more text and see if that helps.
19 is a lot of views for an unpublished hub! I had one that was unpublished for a day before I finished it, and there were 7 views on it.
Quite a few of my hubs have generated up to 10 hits before they were published, this current one with 19 total hits and a prepublished hubscore of 78 is my biggest unpublished hitter thus far.
So, where do these hits come from? One has even generated me a click through to an affiliate site.
I think the warning is just that, a warning that if you publish the hub in the state it is in, it won't be up to par. Just a reminder in a way to add more content before hitting the publish button
same here, got multiple clicks and even a clickthrough before published.. might be a staff member clicking through to see what youre linking to but mine were actually ad click throughs....weird...y wouldn,t hubpages just keep the clicks off the tally if you're clicking your own..the coder must have a way to stop from tallying clicks if its on you own hub and especially if it not even published....strange

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!

Is there a way to exclude hubbers who do not have idled hubs from the 24 hour review for new articles? This may be the wrong place to enter this request, and maybe it is an impossibility. It would be nice if staff could...
