I have been working on a Hub which is as yet unpublished and it shows views on the HubPages stats page as is usual. I also noticed that on Google (Real time) Analytics, I had two visitors to the Hub from two different cities at different times whilst I was watching the stats and it showed me that the unpublished Hubs was being read and neither was myself because I live in different cities to the ones shown. This is the first time I have noticed this so I am curious, has anyone else had this happen or have an explanation for this?

I see that some of them are following many people and I understand the reciprocity factor but I don't...

I know that our own views are counted on the stats page but I have not opened this hub to edit it today and yet I can see that I have had four visits!

Why is it that one of my hubs has 7 views even though I am still working on it?

Read here that when one hubber did this, traffic improved. I thought the formerly called 'sleeping' hubs, now those not 'featured', would be pulled off Google, anyways. So I'm curious that when someone unpublished their 'sleeping' hubs that this improved traffic. Has anyone else found that doing...
