Prior to publishing a hub, how do those page views keep adding up? I thought that no one could see it prior to having it published. My latest one published already had 60 page views! Just curious...
The page views are you.
Meaning, when you create and edit the hub, even if it's not published, your page views are being tallied up.
I hate that HP stats counts the publishers views since it skews the stats. I would really prefer to see the real numbers without my influence.
That's a little disturbing.
I noticed that on my 2nd hub when I didn't publish it right away because I didn't finish, so when I checked back later I remember seeing it did have 3 views, didn't think much of it at that time.
But 60 views before publishing.... hmmm...
That is probably because the photo capsules were not loading properly. I kept trying and trying and deleting and coming back again and again. Told myself that until the problem was fixed, I would not publish. Thus the numerous counts. It was frustrating to say the least. Still not completely fixed but as of today it takes several tries and then it finally works. Thus the 60 count (given all the problems) is now understood to me.
Thanks everyone for the explanation.
I see and I admire your patience!
So is your photo capsule working alright now?
I remember seeing a question about that so apparently you are not alone with issues using it.

Along with the Google effect lately I've seen a lot of forum posts about spam, and every time I hub hop it is obvious that there is a lot submitted here of both spam and simply substandard hubs.I would suggest that the following rules apply to the first 5 (or 10 or 20?) hubs by any new...

Do hubs that are not featured get page views?
