Does HubPages record your own page views?

    I was wondering, just to get a good grasp of how many people actually visit my hubs, if it is taken into account every time I check on one of my own hubs, to see individual stats and the sorts? And other visitors, are they counted as unique visitors or is every separate visit to the same hub represented?
    I'm a bit at a loss here with the correct terminology, but I hope the questions make sense.

    All best wishes,

    Your own views, including editing, are counted. HubPages does not count unique visitors, Google Analytics can do that for you.

      Oh, so I have a lot less viewers than I actually thought... Thanks for your quick and helpful reply, WE.

      WE, I have assumed that as the edit screen is a different URL it doesn't count as a view - am I wrong?

      At the same time, if you go to the hub, then click "edit" that would be a view, and when you click "done editing" that would be another as it returns you to the hub. 

      If you click "edit" directly from the statistics screen you would bypass the first view, but would still collect the second when done editing.

        Sound analysis, Wilderness. I haven't looked that deep, other than to observe that every time one edits a hub the net effect is that new pageviews do accrue.

        By the way, Stories Inc., if you set up Google Analytics there is a way to exclude your own IP address from the results.
