Ok, here's an interesting puzzle:
Today, I was replying to a comment on one of my hubs. On the way to the bottom of the screen to do so, I noticed in the "next" section one of my other hubs (unrelated topic) that is not yet even published. It's still waiting in the wings!
Is this something visible to everyone? They may click on that and get a "not published" advisory, or are such hubs shown only to the hub author? I'm confused.
I got snuckered on this myself awhile back. You are right, only the author sees it.
It's all so confusing, isn't it. My first few hubs were started and left unpublished until I had time to complete them.. I just liked seeing them in the list. Sometimes they had 15 views before I even published. ( I don't know what "views" means when the hub is unpublished.) Now I do the hub offline in Word, and when it's done, I cut and paste into the template, and don't stop until I am finished and published.
I noticed that I had "views" on my unpublished hubs, but I assumed that it was when I pulled it up to work on it. Maybe I'd better reconsider.
This might happen when you have published and unpublished hubs that are orphans. I try to make sure that I put each of my published hubs into a group so this doesn't happen.
Every time you clicked on a hub to work on it, that click was counted as a "view".
When a hub has been published, "views" you and visitors to the hub. Before a hub has been published, only your views are counted. Every time you click on a hub to work on it, that counts as a "view".
Thanks Oldroses. so I guess no harm done if I start a hub and leave off for a few days. as I said, so confusing.
Sorry, that should be "views" include you and visitors to the hub.

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!

Lately, I have had 11 hubs unfeatured due to Quality Issues. I have assured my hubs do not contain grammatical or spelling errors. I have included relevant video and changed the titles and added new supporting texts and...

I've got a few hubs in the works that are unpublished, but somehow they are getting page views. I'm sure they aren't published (some of them are just titles to develop for later) and they show up in red on the...

I really don't mind, terribly. They seem to vote them up, even before I've finished with them.The last Hub I published I was a few days working on, and it had over 20 views and a HubScore of like, 70, before I posted...

It seems Editbot is at work again. Had several little fixes, almost all in comments.

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...
