Do you get pages views on your stats when your hub isn't published yet? Where do they come from?
Hello, yes you get page views on hubs even each time that you click on your own hub so that's the reason you're seeing views although your hubs aren't yet published.
I've tried to track this, particularly because of another question I was following and when opening a published hub, it didn't seem to register so I didn't think it would on an unpublished hub either. I appreciate your answer. Does anyone concur?
I've noticed a lot of views on my unpublished hubs, so I looked it up to see what other people said. Someone said that those views are from you rather than other people. It is funny, because my unpublished hubs have more views than many of my published hubs.
It is definitely not just me. I have 22 pageviews on an unpublished hub I have not visited more than 3 times.
could the URL have been used previously by another hubber so there are links pointing to your hub and people might have followed these other links?
I have to agree. I have only seen this happen twice, and it has only been with the two hubs that I have not published right away. I tend to sit down and do the whole thing in one fell swoop. It wasn't until reading the other answers that the mystery was solved for me.
According to hubpages, the hubs that haven't been published can only viewed by the account holder only which you, so I think its goes with the amount of time you keep clicking on your unpublished hub.
I have no doubt it is me who did it because I click to edit it over and over again.

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!

Why is it that one of my hubs has 7 views even though I am still working on it?

I really don't mind, terribly. They seem to vote them up, even before I've finished with them.The last Hub I published I was a few days working on, and it had over 20 views and a HubScore of like, 70, before I posted...

I have just received an email notification that one of my "micro-poems" has been unpublished as it was found to contain "adult" content. Now this hub, "Micro-poem (No.8) Five Times a Day"...

I've got a few hubs in the works that are unpublished, but somehow they are getting page views. I'm sure they aren't published (some of them are just titles to develop for later) and they show up in red on the...
