Views on unpublished hubs?

    I've got a few hubs in the works that are unpublished, but somehow they are getting page views.  I'm sure they aren't published (some of them are just titles to develop for later) and they show up in red on the "my accounts" page.  I'm perplexed.  Anyone else had this happen?

      The same thing happens to me. I think this occurs when you click on them to open and edit or view.
      I do the same thing too - start one with only a title or a picture.
      It amuses / amazes me when I have one with only a title and a video and it gets a score of 57 when I create it, but one with 800 words only gets a 46 when I start it. It would be interesting to see how that can happen.

    They are your views. Every time you go to the page or edit the hub, then it counts as a view. smile

    No one can see an unpublished hub except for Staff. And, they don't go to your hubs unless there's a problem. smile

      Thanks Cagsil! At least now I don't have to worry about anyone peeking at half-baked hubs!  smile

    Hi Memphis Yankee.  What you are seeing are your own page views.  Every time you bring up your hub to edit and add things, that's a view.  It happened to me too, and many others.

    Don't worry.  By the time you publish your hub your score should be a little higher than usual.

    I believe it's reflecting your own views.

    so glad you asked this I was starting to worry about views on my unpublished hub. I wonder does it hurt our score by editing a little each day. thanks to all who answered this was my next question. blessings and happy hubbing!

      It doesn't hurt your hub to edit it daily while it's unpublished. wink

    You may find that by not publishing the hub straight away the hubscore will rise before you publish it, if not do n't blame me roll, it works for me most times. smile

    Thank you. My highest score (at present) for an unpublished/never published hub is 70, sadly it is not one that will see the light of day yet, so it may drop again.
