Who is able to see your unpublished hub? And is this a good thing for the author?
How does your unpublished hubs get so many views? Are those views your own? Meaning the times you have visited them.

Thanks Max. I was curious because those views sometimes appear after a while.
Hey Max, I'm not sure that if once you publish your hub, hubpages counts your personal views. I have edited my hub after I published it and it didn't count my view because my view count was still zero for a few hours, but I'm not positive, I look into it.

I just finished editing a Hub and signed out. Then I called up the Hub only to get this terrible message that puts a very bad light on Hubbers as possible violators of "The Code."What a poor image this gives...
