Is this happening to anyone else? I clicked on my stats page and see a couple unpublished hubs have the red arrow by them.
They could be your clicks on the hub,but yes I have seen this happen before. Sorry I was not able to figure out how someone was reading my unpublished hub but they were.
That is also happening to me. the arrow either goes up or down.
You visits/views to your Hub are recorded while it is not published.
This happens when you visit your own unpublished Hub, your views count too
But they are hubs I have not viewed in a year or so.
I'm still not very familiar with the workings of hubpages but I suspect it has something to do with hub hopping that is helping unpublished hubbers publish work, I think!
You don't see unpublished hubs when Hubhopping so it can't be that.
I try to publish all of my hubs; unless they need more work done on them, I guess I need to pay more attention to the forums...
Sometimes it takes several days to write a hub, so you obviously don't publish it until it is completed. Also people often unpublish Hubs they are thinking of moving elsewhere. I have even been known to come up with a list of titles and save them as unpublished hubs before gradually working my way through them writing each one and publishing it. There are lots of unpublished hubs out there for all kinds of reasons, but they definitely don't get seen by the Hubhopper until they are published. Hope this helps
Yes it does help, thanks; Misty; you are welcome to visit my hubs; Debbie
thanks for clearing that up for me too Misty.
MIsty: Maybe the hubs are in idle, not unpublished. If in idle, and hub has been promoted on FB, Twitter, PIng sites, etc, yep, they will come up since url is available. Also, you can go to cached pages with the url and find even deleted articles.
You could be right, but I can only go on what the posters said, and they said the hubs were unpublished. As for a cached version of a deleted hub, well that would be available for a short while, but they do vanish within weeks (normally), so it is very unlikely this is the case by the sound of the earlier posts (no-one said their hubs were deleted, and if they were they would only have been visible on their account for 24 hours before vanishing completely apart from the cached versions, this means it would have been impossible for them to see views that weren't real).

So, I've had a hub unpublished due to HP claiming that it's overly promotional.The hub only has 2 outbound links ( which is the number of links we're allowed to put for the other external sites ) this is the only thing that I'm having in my hub.There is also NO amazon products or Ebay or...

Have you ever chosen to delete any of your hubs?If so, why? Did it have the affect that you were looking for?

How do Hubs show "Traffic Rising" in your stats when you've unpublished them?

I thought I knew the answer to this question. But something interesting happened in the last week which I found it hard to explain. I'd be interested to hear opinions.I have a hub which is nine months old and had just reached 250-300 hits per day.I was experimenting to see how many tags I could use...

After 6 months on the site i've started the really wonder how many backlinks is a reasonable number to any hub, and really to a hub becoming successful? Or is it simply a lottery.What kind of figures do other hubbers consider?

I have a quick question. If I unpublish a hub, does Google "see" that it's still sitting in my account and thus punish me for it, or should I be totally deleting hubs that I decide are not garnering enough traffic? Some of them I'd like to keep around until I get the time to...
