    I am no authority......but my understanding was, if it is 'unpublished',  it is for your eyes only.

    I have learned, that when I have one sitting, each time I go to make an edit, it is counted as a visit,.  Therefore, I subtract my own visits from the page views to guage how many others are reading it after publishing.

    I have the same problem, but I do believe as stated above that every time you go into your hub to edit it shows up as a visit.

    No one should be able to see it but you untill it is published.

    Believe me that somebody is besides yourself because at this time I have 820 views ever and is growing slowly and steadily over time since June 3, 2010 A.D. with my 1 unpublished hub and it has been on Google page 1 and 1st on page 1 in rank and has stayed at that position since September 2010 A.D. through the present day of December 8, 2010 A.D. and has not slipped one position since that time. So somebody is looking at unpublished hubs. It could be Casper the friendly ghost. Ha ha ha ...etc. For my 1 unpublished hub to be on Google page 1 and 1st on page 1 then yes somebody is looking at unpublished hubs and it will remain a mystery. I do not mind at all since I am on page 1 on Google and 1st on page 1 in rank. Keep on keeping on. Thank you.

    The views you're seeing on unpublished hubs is from you looking at them and editing them. No one else can see your hubs until they're published. The views are just from you working on them.
