I'm curious why my unpublished hubs have been getting views in my statistics? I'm working on a large group of hubs that will all be launched at the same time (about 18 or so), and I've noticed that the hits keep rising on them, even thought they are not published. Is this something like search crawlers hitting them even though they are not in the public eye yet, or something else? Does Hubpages have people that look at unpublished hubs to rate them or something?
At first I thought maybe it was my own previewing of the hub as I built it that was generating these hits, but on several of the latest hubs, I have avoided previewing for that purpose, and they still show two or three hits each. I just made those hubs last night.
Can anyone tell me what's going on here? It's kinda annoying as it's messing up my stats when I look at them quickly. It looks at first like I've gotten several new hits until I notice they are all in the unpublished hubs.
Your own visits to edit are counted as well.
Ah, that explains it. I was avoiding previews, but the darn thing kicks you out to the page when you tell it to save, and that's where the hits are comming from.
Note to the HP team, why not install a tracking cookie to prevent this, like WordPress.com does?
Actually the hubscore goes up. They don't hurt your hubscore. It has been said on other threads that it does not hurt hubscores.

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.Is there a Super Secret Insiders Club you pay to get into ~so you can read...

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 I have a few unpublished hubs with little to no content in them, and the thing is, one of these hubs outranks one of my published hubs!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...

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...

Just puzzled: How can an unpublished hub attain a higher score than any published hub? (The published hubs with lower scores must be pretty bad!)

Its funny to me that a new 1400+ word hub is still low in ranking than an unpublished hub...
