Does HubPages count our own page views?
It sometimes looks a bit suspicious when I have been editing a hub and immediately afterwards the stats show 1 page view where it had previously been zero.
If this is the case I would like it to stop as it obviously gives us an inaccurate count.
Yes, your own views are counted Angie. I don't know if there is a way of stopping it though - if there is, I haven't discovered it.
I does but when you're editing you know that's not what I like to call true traffic especially when it's an unpublished hub so have free reign there. After the hub is published though if I update or edit my hub I try not to go look at it as much if that hub is getting low traffic. If its a higher traffic driving hub it doesn't much matter because it's performing well. All in all I would worry about it so much.

Every time I create a hub and save the draft, I notice there are page views that show up BEFORE I publish it. Sometimes the page views show up before I've saved it as unpublished. Is HP counting all our editing page views?

As fast as I'm trying to fix up hubs that are unfeatured, the problem isn't that there is something wrong with them, but that they are being unfeatured as a result of lack of traffic. Isn't this short sighted? Some topics just don't get that much traffic. It's not because they are badly written,Is...
