I'm new to this so I'm probably doing something something to cause this.
I started a hub, but kept it unpublished because it was still basically in outline form. Even though it was unpublished it got a hit, so I deleted it. After I deleted it, I got two more hits on that hub. How can I remove it so that people don't have access to it?
Don't worry about unpublished hubs. It also does not affect your hubberscore.
Every time you visit your hub to work on it-- or just to see if it is still there it records a view. In other words, your own views are counted. Not to worry.
Padawan - no one can see it. Except you and probably the hub staff team. It will be your footprints (no doubt) and something to do with a time delay or some such.
How did I know you'd be the first to respond?
Thank you for that information. All I had on the hub was a title, and a couple of outline points, so I really don't want anyone seeing it yet. Then I looked at my stats and saw three hits, and it kind of freaked me out.

I have been struggling with Google traffic and finally out of frustration, I unpublished close to 30 hubs that simply weren't getting traffic.If I leave these unpublished for more than 30 days, will they look new to Google? Would a video help these stagnant hubs?I have lessened the Amazon capsules,...

If you guys could take a look at my California vacation hub, I'd appreciate it. I've tried to do everything right with it -- arranged it so ads would be at the top, added some nice personal pics and links, I just added some RSS feeds ... and it's getting almost no traffic. My Staten Island hub is...

I just recently went through my many hubs and came to realize that almost every hub I did involving youtube videos had broken links. So I went to go fix the links only to find that these hubs were lame. I started deleting all hubs that don't generate traffic or are just plain...
