How come unpublished hubs show views on the stat page?
I have an unpublished hub that has quite a lot of views listed on the state page. Does anyone know why that happens?
Because although it has been unpublished and hence, now the hub will no longer get views (except when you view it), the hub still received views prior to it being unpublished and so these views are included in your statistics. If you would prefer not to have the views included, you can delete the hub and all content+views will be removed from your account.
If you view your own Hubs, including unpublished ones you are editing, it counts in the stats page. I think HubPages should not count your own visits to your hubs since they skew the data and don't count toward pages views for the Ad programs. Can anyone from HubPages address this?
