    Why does it show that my hub has been read even when it hasn't been published yet?

    I was working on a hub when I had to stop midway through. When I go back to edit the hub, it states that it already has 4 views. I thought I was the only one who saw it until it was published.

    I believe your own views are counted as a viewing, even when not published.

    I'm not positive, but I think many of the views that are counted are the author's. That's the only thing that would make sense.

    Your own views are counted, too. Those have to be your own views.

    I agree that our own visits to a hub are counted as views!
    I have a feeling that when Hubpages check out our Hubs, yes they must visit our unpublished Hubs to rate them, their views are also counted in the view counter?

    It's your own visits, all of your visits to your own hubs are counted.  You would have to use Google Analytics to show you how many hub views were NOT your own.

    Everyone has already answered this, but  I must say I find it frustrating.  While working on a hub to publish, I went in and out of it 11 times and those were counted.  I wish there was a way our own visits weren't counted since it doesn't really give an accurate picture of readership.
