I have a hub I am finishing yet when I just looked into my account is showed that it had a view. Can people read hubs before they are published? Doesn't seem like they can.
I seem to remember someone saying there was a way to access unpublished hubs through a particular type of search. It sounds weird, but this issue has come up in the past. I don't know. Maybe I'll try and search for your hub and see what I can find
Unpublished hubs can be read by those at HubPages. They sometimes check on progress of unpublished hubs to make sure that they are appropriate and things like that. If you work on a hub for a few days, before you publish it, it gives them an opportunity to check it out before it's published. No big deal, that happens to me all the time. I start working on a hub, don't get around to finishing it right away, or need to do some work on it, and the next day, I have a view or two.
I noticed that, too. Always thought it was HP at work. I do hope that's what it is, not some funky searches finding hidden material or something!
Hubpages don't mind if you do that, do they?
I often do, as I collect links, videos, etc
I always just assumed it was my views as I went back to edit something before I published. It's also worth noting that your hubscore will rise if you take your time doing your hub. I've published at 64 before, although I had 24 pv before I published. Big hub!
Yes I think it may also be going and looking at it. I have a couple in this stage at the moment one of which I haven't looked at for a couple of days and so it has no page views in the last 24 hours, and the one I have edited quite a lot has 4 page views. I have also had those sort of high hubscores, when I published my Glasney Parc hub it was in the 70s!
I thought that might be HP admin at work! I've had hubs viewed almost 20 times before it was published. I hope it's cause they liked it...

Sometimes when I have ideas for hubs, I "start a hub" and sometimes finish it later or just let it sit there for a while. Maybe I should just write down my hub ideas instead. Does it hurt my hub scores or overall hubber score to have those unfinished hubs (often with just titles) sitting...

I just want to make sure I am clear on the transition information. My stuff transferred overnight, so that means that I have 4 months to clear up skulls etc before the hubs get moderated, correct?I am going to have to completely revamp quite a few former lenses due to the fact that much of my...

Hello,On other sites where there is a "wait" period before articles move out of pending status, they allow authors with an established reputation to apply for exemptions to the wait time.I just tried to tweet my latest book review to Oprah magazine, since she asked in a Tweet today what...

When you publish a hub, it is normally listed under hub activity and a notification is sent via email to all interested parties. Now, when you unpublish that hub, finish re-editing and then republish it (keeping the original title intact), will it appear in the hub activity? Also, will...

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!

This really isn't a problem, but rather something I am interested in finding out. I have a few unpublished hubs with little to no content in them, and the thing is, one of these hubs outranks one of my published hubs! I am wondering why that happens and if it is any indication of how good the hub...
