Say, How Come Staff Keeps Reading My New Stuff Before I Can Even Get To Finish It?
Sorta Like Sneakpeeking An Artist's Work While It's In First Draft!
i agree there ty for bringing it to the forefront
No one is peaking at your writing. The views that accumulate are your own. Every time you use the preview button, you create a view. Every time you enter an article to edit it, then save it again unpublished, you create two views.
The reason it seems they are being looked at is because the views don't show up in your stats right away.
so that is why when I had a few unpublished there were sill numbers from viewing...it's the staff looking at it?
I just assume the numbers are when I go to my unpublished hub and then press the EDIT button, rather than pressing EDIT to navigate to it from My Account.
I think it shows a pageview each time you edit. At least that's about how my numbers come out.
I appreciate your input, rebekahELLE, but the problem I have with the edit=pageview explain is that I have'nt edited any of my hubs over 50 times while finishing them in the Unpublished mode; the number of pageviews are in high excess of my own returns to the hubs for editing, starting at 3 or 4 times my edit returns, then steadily increasing daily without me even going back to the hub for hours. I'll consider your input too, Ivorwen. That may be it, but I'll need to check it out to be sure. Thanks to those who tried to answer my query.
I unpublished all 8 of mine to add a few things to them just for a day and my hubscore dropped from 90 to 56, weird or what ?
Wow, that's interesting. Were they getting good traffic before you unpublished? I have just gone in to edit if I needed anything added, so haven't yet had the need to totally unpublish one.
They were getting increased outside traffic and with change of Titles and experimenting a few had hit a good spot on google, but the annoying thing is another account I use to fart about with has a hubscore of 77 with just one hub so why even bother wasting your time to try and make a hub better.
Healthtip, you don't need to unpublish them just because you're revising - just leave them up. Taking them "off the air" is bad for your ranking on search engines as well as on HubPages.
It's us, we are the ones doing it damn it, trying to go about our hubpage writing and stuff and we put the views there with our minds.....there is no stopping it, it happens and we must deal with the evil of looking and registered views on our unpublished hubpages.....NNNooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!
I have a few but the only keyword I know is money and my score is 77 for doing no research, you are wasting your time on health Doc
These comments about unpublished articles having scores is really interesting. I wrote one the other day and for the first time didn't publish it immediately. I went back to see something on the "my account" page and lo.....there had been two views. It definitely wasn't me. I was MOST confused as to why that would happen too.
By the way...when I make changes to a published article I just do it in edit mode.
I usually make changes in edit mode myself but I was doing a complete makeover on all 8 hubs, I deff won't be doing that again.
Sure can understand why you wouldn't want to do that again! Such a shame to drop so many points.
As far as I understand, the scores are computer generated, based on your activity and traffic. However, I have noticed that my most visited hubs are not always the ones with the highest scores. Hubpages has some sort of system to assign the scores.

I think my account run into a maze of bugs hehehe...I think my account GeneralHowitzer has a bug... Every time I edit my hubs an alert like substandard, unrelated links, etc. appears. And before I edit a hub this also appears: "Note: "This Hub is currently published. However, if you make...

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 "my accounts" page. I'm perplexed. Anyone else had this...

Is it possible that, even when a Hub is in Idle Status, it could still be found on the Web and get views and thereby come out of Idle Status? I ask this because I was searching the Web on a subject and accidentally found a Hub and when I checked the Hubber's profile, this particular Hub was not...

How do I delete an unpublished hub?

(Maybe the answers to my questions is somewhere on HP; but even if any answers are out there on the site; so many changes have been made in seven-and-a-half years, I wanted to get the absolute latest with regard the questions below):1. If one unpublishes a Hub and just...
