I have been having a great time learning and creating Hubs, and sorry if this has been asked before, but the last two Hubs I created took me several days to complete and while they were not published yet, they still had traffic. My latest hub, http://hubpages.com/hub/Email-Marketing … y-Clickers had about 25 or so people visit in a little over a day but it was not published yet.
Just curious where that traffic comes from and does it hurt your hub if you start it but don't finish it for several days, or would it be better to write it like in word pad first and when you are completely finished create the hub all in one sitting?
Just wondering if it affects your hub in either a positive or negative way when it takes several days to complete before you publish it.
Thanks for any feedback,
Actually it's positive if you leave your hub a few days "marinating" before publishing... It tends to raise your hubscore, so you can puclish it with a hubscore of say 70 after 4 or 5 days post-creation. Just a little tip
It's nothing to worry about. The numbers you see are the total count of your own visits (depends on how many times you opened the hub for editing). And, none other than you can see the hub until it gets published
Great, thank you for the information, never thought it could be my own visits or the times I opened the hub to edit it.
Thank you, makes perfect sense now.
Great Tip, I wondered about that. Never thought about it like "marinating", but good very good analagy :-).

How long does it take you to write a hub? How long does it take you to edit/publish a hub?Do you plan your ideas out? or go where your mind takes you?

My best hub for traffic has had near a 50% daily drop in views since the new layout went into effect. It is not at the most relevant time, but traffic had been rising. The date is obviously hurting this hub as people...
