    How do I have four views on an unpublished hub?

    I am working (slowly) on a new hub and it is unpublished as of yet. How is it that it shows on my account that it has four views?

    those views will be yours from editing, your views count too in hubs.....jimmy

      Oh. Thank you. I did not know that. I was afraid someone was seeing this hub before it was finished. That would not be so good since I only typed one paragraph before 'the block' set in....

      Well said Jimmy! If I may add, that is why Google Analytics numbers are different than HubPages' statistics. Not to mention the the HP stats are on a 24 hour "rolling period" that updates every hour, not every 24 hours.  JSMatthew~

    I have 12 views to a hub I have only worked on one time. So I have only edited it one time, never actually gone to the page. 6 of those views showed up while I was on vacation. So no one admits it but admin have to be able to view them or something.

      Thank you. I didn't view or edit four times either.

    I now have 10 views and have not gone back to edit.

    It is also possible that editing them just once can generate multiple views such as when you move capsules around, etc.  But I'm pretty sure that if it is not published, then no one else can see it.

    When I first started here, I wondered the same thing.  I had not edited that many times.  I asked in the Forum and was told that HP's search bots (or whatever) go to work even before the article is published and that counts as a view.
    Now, I'm not 100% sure if this is correct, but it does kind of makes sense.
    I would have more views than I had edited, that's for sure!
