Hi, I think I'm correct in saying that page views are totted up whilst editing an unpublished hub, this morning I was working on a new hub and had to stop, so I saved it unpublished and left the site. Now I've gone back to it I'm sure that the page views are higher than they were. I've noticed this before too. Or am I cracking up?...
Could someone enlighten me please?
LOL PD is at it again.. your views as you go in and out editing are counted..and that is about all . No you are not cracking up... this always happens..probably you did not notice it before..
1) Genuine traffic
2) Your own accessing of the page
3) Elves or fairies.
Elves and fairies have a lot to answer for in this house.....First the odd sock problem and now pushing up page views....Wait 'til I catch them!!
Be careful not to mention the 'Odd Sock' problem here...
There are a few 'Sock Puppets' here on occasions, though they are often described a lot more graphically than merely 'Odd'
Also beware of 'The Moose' (Loose In the Forums) and remember that when you get your 1 year accolade, you must buy Lunch for your fans!
Good Luck.. Happy Trails.
I'll be sure to be on the look out for loose Moose tracks......Hope everyone like potnoodle, there's quite a selection to choose from these days!!
Where do you get the smileys from?....Or are they really undercover elves?
Oh the things that go on behind the scenes. "Only the Forum knows" The ratings, points, numbers, percentages mysteriously change from minute to hour. These little hints can help our Hubpages if we let them sit awhile and percolate, while we go make a cup of coffee. Blessings this day. Debby

Every time I create a hub and save the draft, I notice there are page views that show up BEFORE I publish it. Sometimes the page views show up before I've saved it as unpublished. Is HP counting all our editing page...

Today I am almost two days old at HP and have published 6 hubs. I hope they are useful.I have noticed that some people are reading my unpublished hubs. Not that I mind. Who are they? Are they Hub staff? Just curious.

Hi all,Forgive me if this question has been asked before but I'm still fairly new. When I write hubs I tend to leave them unpublished for a while so that I can edit and then press the publish button when I am happy. On...

Lately, I have had 11 hubs unfeatured due to Quality Issues. I have assured my hubs do not contain grammatical or spelling errors. I have included relevant video and changed the titles and added new supporting texts and...
