Just wondering if the author's own visits count in the stats.

Yep, I'm pretty sure they do. I usually take a single check of a new hub then try to stay away from unless some editing needs doing.
I could be wrong, and would love to be corrected

I think they do, at least some times. Perhaps the algorithm includes them occasionally.

How can I exclude my own visits from showing in Hub Traffic Statistics?And is Google Analytics counting my own visits? I think it is. Can I somehow set it to NOT count them?

I was wondering if there was a way HP could allow users to block/stop their own views from being tracked. Blogger allows the user to "not track your own views" so you get a clear idea of your real views as in most cases a 1/3 of the views that are actually recorded are your own. We...
