    Do the stats on HubPages record when I click on my own hubs? I would prefer if they didnt as that can distort the true result. I only want to know if other people cliock on them.

      Yes, they do record your views.

        Correct.

        If you want accurate statistics, sign up for a free Google Analytics account and link it in your earning affiliates section.

          And then block your own IP from showing up in Analytics.

    Yes definitely.

    Back when I thought the brilliant thing to do would be to create monster five thousand word hubs....I'd often have over a hundred views prior to publication.

    Those were mine, of course.

    Nowadays I am only really paying attention to the number of views from other sites, and how long it takes for views from Google to start showing up, as that tends to give me an idea on whether or not I need to be creating new backlinks for any particular hub.

      All of that makes perfect sense. Thanks to all. I did sign up for Google Analytics ages ago. But I could not figure how it worked. Perhaps it is time I had another go.
