If my unpublished hub cannot be seen by others, why is the "viewed" counter rising?
My husband and I started working on a hub two days ago. We have only clicked on the link for it twice, but the "viewed" counter on my accounts is showing 7 views. Why is this?
The number of views counted includes all the times that you view it in edit mode.
Each time you click "save" it counts as a view. There is also an auto save facility (I'm not quite sure how often but every few minutes or so) that has the same effect of adding to your view count.
I find that by the time I have a hub "done and dusted" and ready to be published, I have around 20 views already on the clock.
For earning purposes your own views like these are discounted, so don't worry about them.
