Why is view duration information being removed from my hub stats?

    I've noticed recently that certain information is being removed from my stats.

    An example would be that my hub on atheism which was written about 20 months ago and which has the duration of time people spent on it a full five stars now saying that it hasn't been measured yet.

    That's not true. It used to be measured. It has now been removed. This is not the only hub this has happened to.

    Please could you let me know what is happening. Thank you. smile

      Check your account page and see if the affected hubs have a "zzz" symbol by them.

        My hub average is 77. I have 112 hubs of which only four have ZZZ. And that's mostly because they are written for hubbers. smile I'm thinking of removing them. That said, the hub on atheism has had a lot of traffic and people used to stay on it for average 30 minutes according to Google Analystics, and it's beeen there for 20 months.

    Thanks for reporting this Sophia. We recently added the ability to see when search engines crawl your Hubs, and it looks like this may have changed how often that view duration is shown. We require a certain amount of traffic before that number is shown, and those Hubs have dipped below that threshold.

    We'll going to look at adjusting that threshold to cover some more of the low-ish traffic Hubs.

    Alternately, you can also use Google Analytics to see "Time on Page" or "Avg Visit Duration" in aggregate across your subdomain or for specific, individual Hubs.

    An update went out today that lowers the data thresholds used to calculate the view duration for Hub stats. It will take a few days to propagate to everyone's stats calculations.

    Derek,

    I'm not sure how difficult it would be to code, but some numbers would be more meaningful on 'incoming links' (how many) and 'view duration' (avg how long) on Hubs.

    Just a thought.

    Sophia, glad to see you raise this question, and Derek, thanks for a quick response. Since I'm "re-entering" hp, since so many changes have been made during my relatively short absence, I need to learn all I can, and this helps. When I first read about the "zzzz's". I expected my hubs to all show them. Feel like learning from scratch, and every tidbit helps. Thanks
