Hi, I think I'm correct in saying that page views are totted up whilst editing an unpublished hub, this morning I was working on a new hub and had to stop, so I saved it unpublished and left the site. Now I've gone back to it I'm sure that the page views are higher than they were. I've noticed this before too. Or am I cracking up?...
Could someone enlighten me please?
LOL PD is at it again.. your views as you go in and out editing are counted..and that is about all . No you are not cracking up... this always happens..probably you did not notice it before..
1) Genuine traffic
2) Your own accessing of the page
3) Elves or fairies.
Elves and fairies have a lot to answer for in this house.....First the odd sock problem and now pushing up page views....Wait 'til I catch them!!
Be careful not to mention the 'Odd Sock' problem here...
There are a few 'Sock Puppets' here on occasions, though they are often described a lot more graphically than merely 'Odd'
Also beware of 'The Moose' (Loose In the Forums) and remember that when you get your 1 year accolade, you must buy Lunch for your fans!
Good Luck.. Happy Trails.
I'll be sure to be on the look out for loose Moose tracks......Hope everyone like potnoodle, there's quite a selection to choose from these days!!
Where do you get the smileys from?....Or are they really undercover elves?
Oh the things that go on behind the scenes. "Only the Forum knows" The ratings, points, numbers, percentages mysteriously change from minute to hour. These little hints can help our Hubpages if we let them sit awhile and percolate, while we go make a cup of coffee. Blessings this day. Debby

Every time I create a hub and save the draft, I notice there are page views that show up BEFORE I publish it. Sometimes the page views show up before I've saved it as unpublished. Is HP counting all our editing page views?

I am sure this has been addressed here before but I forgot the answer ! I am making a biggish hub and it is unpublished yet I have 14 pageviews - are they me opening it to add new stuff ? It had 3 views immediately after I started it and had only opened it to start!

How does my unpublished hub have 2 page views?I'm freaking out! I'm not ready to publish it, I need to edit, and I'm not even 100% sure I want to make it a hub! Who looked at it?

I just reached 1000 page views in 3 weeks.I have 31 hubs, I was just wondering what the average is? and if this is a good start?

I have 8-10 articles that have got zero views over the last 30 days. They normally pick up some views, but this month I noticed they got none. Some are recent articles, others less so. Some have thousands of total views, but none in the last 30 days. So, I have decided to unpublish them for now...
