Where does the traffic come from on a new Hub that is not Published ?

    Hey Everyone,

    I have been having a great time learning and creating Hubs, and sorry if this has been asked before, but the last two Hubs I created took me several days to complete and while they were not published yet, they still had traffic.  My latest hub, http://hubpages.com/hub/Email-Marketing … y-Clickers had about 25 or so people visit in a little over a day but it was not published yet.

    Just curious where that traffic comes from and does it hurt your hub if you start it but don't finish it for several days, or would it be better to write it like in word pad first and when you are completely finished create the hub all in one sitting?

    Just wondering if it affects your hub in either a positive or negative way when it takes several days to complete before you publish it.

    Thanks for any feedback,

    Mike Witt

      Actually it's positive if you leave your hub a few days "marinating" before publishing... It tends to raise your hubscore, so you can puclish it with a hubscore of say 70 after 4 or 5 days post-creation. Just a little tip big_smile

    It's nothing to worry about. The numbers you see are the total count of your own visits (depends on how many times you opened the hub for editing). And, none other than you can see the hub until it gets published smile

    Great, thank you for the information, never thought it could be my own visits or the times I opened the hub to edit it.

    Thank you, makes perfect sense now.
