How do unpublished hubs get views?
I just finished writing a new hub but saved it as a draft for now. I notice my stats say it has 7 views. How can this be possible? And, I also heard somewhere that saving hubs as drafts helps your rating. Is this true and how would that even work?
It's funny because I wondered the same thing. Sometimes it would seem like they get views even though you haven't looked at them recently yourself. Maybe there's a secret Hubpages staff member reading them? Food for thought.
As to rating, I have read about that as well, but haven't done enough research to confirm. One of my later Hubs did go from about 51 to 55~ rating in about a day of being a draft, so I suppose Hubs with relatively good titles that Hubpages likes can go up during the unpublished period.
I had literally just finished writing the hub, saved it and didn't view it afterwards. But my stats for this unpublished hub says it has 7 views. Weird.
I wrote a hub last night that I left unpublished and reviewed it today and found 29 views! ...Yes there must be others in the equation...
my unpublished hub actually has more views than many of my published hubs, lol.

I know that our own views are counted on the stats page but I have not opened this hub to edit it today and yet I can see that I have had four visits!
