    my unpublished hub shows 20 views when i've only looked at it 3 times myself.  i wrote it a few days ago and have left it unpublished  until i'm inspired to edit it and finally publish it before i take off for the xmas season.  it doesn't have ads attached to it - mine never do.  whatup?

    Hey Someway,

    Usually either traveling to the hub or clicking on the edit link on your statistics page will create a view. If you travel to the hub and you click out quickly, then no view is registered. But, if you click on edit and then leave, a view is automatically registered.

    As for the ads? There are never any ads on unpublished hubs.

        Hey Someway, when you use the "preview" button in edit mode, it does add to your views. I just noticed that it does that recently. Never noticed it before, but did recently.
