Do your own visits count in the stats?

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

    I hope not, as I'd like to think the numbers show 'real' people.  Obviously when I'm making a new hubpage I look at it quite a few times, both in edit and preview mode.  I also go back and check on them from time to time when I'm thinking about changing them.  Do these visits count?

    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  smile

    Thanks Terri

    I was beginning to suspect that my own visits do count.

    In the grand scheme of things a few visits from yourself will pale in significance to having thousands and hopefully hundreds of thousands of pageviews.

      I certainly hope they will eventually. At the moment my scheme is not very grand!

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