    Hi All, My first post here.

    I noticed that My 2 Hubpages started acquiring visit statistics straight away, infact the second one was getting visits recorded before I published it.

    Might I suggest that it should be possible to prevent this , particularly where the owner of a hubpage is logged in smile

    Perhaps i am mistaked an people are just really hungry for my Hubpages smile

      Just use analytics for true stats

    I noticed that yesterday, when my hub had 6 views before I published it. I thought it was strange that it was recording my own views, I didnt realise it did that.

      here is whats wierd. Yes, it records your views, and your own comments.
      but, sometimes, my computer crashes before i finish a hub, then when I can get back, it will views..and no way its computer was turned off!! Whos looking at unpublished hubs?
      and. why does it even  matter?

    It would be nice to have reliable analytics build in

      It would, but you cant beat analytics.

      plus, after a few days, its not likely you will be looking at your own hub anymore.

      After you see a couple of thousand views per week, those self registered views seem far less troublesome

      keep writing!

    I try to not open my Hubs again after I publish, so my stats are real. I think most of my stats are real, because I didn't open one of my hubs over 1,500

    Don't you have to look at your hubs again if you want to reply to a comment? coz I always wondered if there was a way of replying without going back onto your hub.

    Hubpages view them before they are published to determine content and stats (for you) Im sure Goggle crawls 24/7..its what they do smile
