I have been saving drafts of my articles to my Hub account page before I am ready to publish them. I have noticed that somehow I am getting page views on these articles which are not published, at least I did not hit the publish button nor know I was publishing them if I somehow did. What's up here? Can people look at my unpublished drafts? Who would look at these?
Can you let me know the titles of the articles you are referring to? Your own views are included in your stats, so it's likely that they are from looking at your articles yourself.
Okay, that is it. I just educated myself a bit more and read the screen that says no one but me can see my drafts. My bad! I understand now. It's been me vexing myself all along.
The article is "Words on Words: How Many Do You Know?" but I don't need any more help.
Thank you most kindly!
How do I remove this request before I vex others as well?
I can delete this thread if you'd like, but it may also help other users with the exact same question if left up. I'll leave it up to you.

How many drafts of a poem do you usually go through before you consider it "done"? I've heard of some great writers going through tens or twenties of them before they were satisfied.Myself, I usually do from 5 to 8 drafts, depending on the poem.

How long should I wait before publishing a work on Hubpages that I have deleted from another site?I write for a variety of online writing sites, and for a while now it has become apparent to me that my work is better suited on Hubpages than any other writing site. However, after deleting some...

When the March Q&A Contest was announced and there was mention of daily drawings for hubs, I had the idea that it was the perfect time to try out the HubChallenge with the added bonus of using Questions to inspire my writing. Last night when I should have been in bed it dawned on me that March...

Maybe it's a coincidence or maybe just me but it seems that since this QAP transition, I've seen more poetry than ever. I admit that I tend to write more poetry to keep publishing when I don't have time to put together a "stellar hub." But I wonder if something else is happening. I'm...
