I'm kinda interested to know why articles I'm working on but have yet to publish still show as having views? Is it just each time I go in to work on the article that shows up?
Yes. And if you open the hub, go to edit and leave edit it will count as two views. It's all you.
I don't understand why our views are recorded (when we are logged in). We can be going to our hubs many many times for one reason or another and end up increasing our hub traffic then I would assume and that will be misleading in terms of traffic data and analysis. No? Like, how do you know then how many views are yours and how many views are other people's?
When you hub is getting 50 or 100 views per day you can be pretty sure it isn't all coming from you. Or when you have quit editing it.
You can go into "My Account" > "Traffic sources" and it breaks down exactly how many visits were from Google, from HubPages, other sources and yourself over the past 24 hours, 7 days, 30 days and ever. ♥
@wilderness is correct. Your views are recorded as well.
Blogger has an option to ignore your own views..Hope the Hub staff enable that here too.
I don't think GA counts your own views, cause there's a difference between the views over there and here on HP, though again it could be cause GA updates every 2 days and HP every few hours :\
Well blogger has option to stop or start our own views. Does hubpages has option or not ?I haven't seen yet anywhere in setting. Please get gack to me if anybody finds that option.
Nope the option isn't available here...yet
Hopefully they do put it up, would be nice to know how much traffic I genuinely get.
Well exactly we don't know yet how many unique visitors we are acquiring through hub. We can't check how much more effective hub is ? Hope so we will see that feature in hubpages.

How can unpublished articles on hubpages still record views?
by lovesleftovers 6 years ago
How do unpublished hubs get views?I just finished writing a new hub but saved it as a draft for now. I notice my stats say it has 7 views. How can this be possible? And, I also heard somewhere that saving hubs as drafts helps your rating. Is this true and how would that even work?

Do you have hubs that stay at the bottom of your hub list no matter what you do to them? Is it the unappealing subject matter, boring content, too short, oversaturated topic, poetry, or something else? I have about 5 or 6 at the bottom of my barrel of 83 hubs. I'm curious about why and wonder if...

I just returned to the site to find that 6 of my hubs have been unpublished. Not happy.
