I just published a hub, but I noticed that just before I published, it already had 25 views. Where do those views come from? What concerns me is that those views obviously happened while the hub was still in development. Do they contribute to the hubscore? It wouldn't make sense to evaluate a hub before the author says it's ready.
They are your views, when you click to write it.
Melissa A Smith is right. Hubpages counts your own views. This means that each time you go to edit your hub and you load the page with the hub on it. Hubpages counts it as a view. So, if you have gone to the hub 25 times, the view count will say 25 even though your hub may not even be public.
Thanks, Melissa and techhubmaster. A simple explanation, but one that hadn't occurred to me.
More than likely it is the souls of hubbers who have been cast out by management and now haunt the servers.
They also leave nonsense comments like 'great hub, voted up'.
Hahaha! Wow, I really chuckled at Will's comment. A fine example of humorous sarcasm.

Who reads my hubs when they aren't published?I know some of the hits are me, but I know I haven't viewed the page 48 times in one day, so where do the hits come from before a hub is published?

Do you ever get disappointed when you publish a Hub and no one reads it right away?Sometimes I do-- not out of arrogance or self-importance; I feel like a new Hub says, "Hey! I'm here!" and I get all excited that I've published something, and no one reads it right then. :'( Tragic.

Hi All,First question here, only been around a couple of days, please be gentle with me ;-)I was writing a hub, then came back to edit it before publishing, only to find from my Account page that it has 3 views already! How is that possible - it's not published yet. What am I missing...

For the very first time (that I am aware of) I crossed the 500 reads in one day threshold. In about a week, I'll cross the 10,000 read barrier for one hub. Not too bad for a very part-time hubber.

I now have 15 hubs. I am hitting 300 pageviews per day. 1 of my hubs on FIFA World Cup 2010 is contributing to 70% of the traffic. There rest of it with 13 hubs hitting 3 to 10 pageviews per day and 1 hub with 0 views most of the time. I am worry that when the World Cup is over, so will my traffic...

How do I have four views on an unpublished hub?I am working (slowly) on a new hub and it is unpublished as of yet. How is it that it shows on my account that it has four views?
