When are New Hubs Visible?

    I recently created my first one and I started it at night and finished in the morning. I am quite sure that I didn't click on a "Publish" button, but even before I finished, it was showing 3 visitors. This was embarrassing because it wasn't done yet.

    On my second one too, I was extra careful not to hit publish and haven't yet...but it's showing a visitor.

    Do I need to take care and create all the capsules of the hub at once for the hub to be "complete"?

    It counts your own views.

    That is correct. You can save your work without publishing, but each edit will accrue more pageviews. Purely statistical, no one except you can actually see your hubs until they are published.

    That's right, nothing to worry about it was only you. Welcome to Hubpages. smile

    I was worried because I thought that people were voting me down because all I had on the hub so far was a picture.
    It's good to know that people won't see it til I'm done.

      Oh, good to know. I thought people were voting me up and down before it was done as well!
