    I'm curious why my unpublished hubs have been getting views in my statistics?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  Does Hubpages have people that look at unpublished hubs to rate them or something?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  It looks at first like I've gotten several new hits until I notice they are all in the unpublished hubs.

        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?

    the less you visit those hubs the better for your hubscore.

      Actually the hubscore goes up.  They don't hurt your hubscore.  It has been said on other threads that it does not hurt hubscores.
