Do your own visits to your hub count in the number of views a specific hub gets?
I've noticed that some of my hubs are getting views before they're published and unless they are my own visits, I don't understand how that can happen...
Yes, your own views do count, including previews and editing.
I assumed they'd want to not include those views in your totals (actually I wish they had some way to turn your own views, previews and editing off - I'd rather know what the "pure" numbers are...)
ah well, if wishes were horses...
There is a way to get this... it's called Google Analytics and it works with your Hubs.

I took my 30-days page views count; divided it by 30 and further divided it by the number of published hubs. Thus I got a fair representation of my average number of visitors per day per hub. It comes to a whopping 1.6!...
