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 Sometimes the page views show up before I've saved it as unpublished.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?
Sure - but why are the page views counted BEFORE we publish the hub? I even create the first few drafts on my word processors offline, then paste it in. I only review the draft on HP, before publishing, to see how it will look, so I can adjust things like paragraph spacing and capsule formatting.
I also should mention that sometimes, after I publish a hub, I've gone back to look at it, but the page view isn't counted. So weird.
When editing a hub, it's automatically considered a view. If you just travel to a hub, then you need to be on the for a period of time for it to register as a view. If you managed to get off the page before it's counted as a view, then it won't register.
As for why are unpublished views counted? Because, that's the way HP prefers it.
I think its big brother spying on us to see how many of us have OCD when we edit our hubs...
Well, I decided to do what I should have done. I visited one of my hubs that has had no page views in the last 72 hours, and had the window open for about 15 minutes. I'll check my stats periodically to see if the page view got recorded.
It probably will do, I call them ghost views
Maybe the ghost at the other end is on a coffee break???
Its okay have found him :lol
They update the statistics page once an hour or something like that. Your statistics page is a rolling 24 hour clock. So it will appear sooner or later.
Yep - sadly, it turns out all our editing page views are counted. I can't for the life of me come up with a good reason for HubPages to do this.

Is it worth it? All this writing, photographing and editing, and page views are still going down.I wonder if I am wasting my time here on Hubpages, I pour my heart out and share my best recipes, I have written 72 hubs over the last year and a half, I feel that the quality and content of my hubs has...

Hi all,Forgive me if this question has been asked before but I'm still fairly new. When I write hubs I tend to leave them unpublished for a while so that I can edit and then press the publish button when I am happy. On my list, however, it sometimes says that there have been up to 4 views on the...
