    Who on earth is viewing an unpublished hub?

    i started to write a hub, then realized I had forgotten to upload the videos I planned on using for that hub, so cancelled it until I was ready. Then I saw after I had finished writing the hub, that the one I cancelled was listed as well. when I clicked on it I saw it was empty but I see no way to delete the hub itself. I left it unpublished. since doing that it has had three viewers or visitors. are they from moderators?

    Deleted hubs are removed over a period of a few hours, so long as you don't edit or remove it from deleted status (with a line through it).  I don't know the answer to your other question about clicks.

    go to the hub that is empty, the one you started, and click edit.  that will give you the chance to add your new copy and everything else to it.  When you start a hub in future just save it unpublished.  I believe the button at the top is "done editing".  I think if you cancel the first one you won't be able to use the same title again.  I don't know that for sure...  Hope this helps

    You can delete a hub by pressing the button on top, next to the stats that says delete.

    The views might have been your own.

    I've had the same weird experience,, i'm sure they don't count the times we keep previewing, do they?  or is is possible that someone can sneak a peak when it's in preview mode?

    You are probably viewing your own hub. I could not figure this out either than realized it was me clicking on my own hub lol

    Most of the views you see are actual from you.  I also think that hubpages scans hubs are we write them so that an initial score can be applied to the hub when it is published. I do not think its an actual hubpages person just a computer.  This is a process that happens to us all.  I would just continue to write and edit and then publish the hub.

    thank you all for your answers. i did eventually figure out how to delete said hub. after reading your answers i think davenmidtown makes the most sense about the views coming from automated scans. thank you again for taking the time to answer my question.
