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I does but when you're editing you know that's not what I like to call true traffic especially when it's an unpublished hub so have free reign there.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.

I am major curious about the answer to this mystery.... just how much traffic are those Hubs who make it to the HOT HUBS actually receiving? I know that most likely nobody is going to give this up with specific...
