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I have a feeling that when Hubpages check out our Hubs, yes they must visit our unpublished Hubs to rate them, their views are also counted in the view counter?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

Hub score than I do?

How does your hubscore drop when it hasn't even been published yet?I was working on a hub and wasn't able to finish it in one sitting. So I saved it to return later to edit. When I went back, the hub score had dropped below 50. How is it changing when it shouldn't even be published yet?

Hi,I wonder if you can help me with this hub. It's the first time a hub of mine hasn't been featured. Normally, they are featured within a few hours of writing this. This has been 24 hours and it's going nowhere fast. (Oh, dear, and I was so in tune with it).http://tessschlesinger.hubpages.com/hub...

Why do viewing stats show on a hub that hasn't been published yet? Does it have to do with my edits?

Is this happening for everyone or is it just me? I'm worried.

How did I manage to get a comment on a hub that hasn't had any views?Just wrote a review on the Casio CDP100 digital piano and was suprised to see a comment even though it says it has had 0 views.
