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.
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. 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.
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

Did HubPages provide an explanation regarding why you can no longer easily share a Hub on Twitter using a button on the Hub? Why did they replace it with Flipboard?

Hey fellow hubbers,I've been posting quite a few hubs recently and I've also been doing quite a lot of SEO for them however, there is some part of the puzzle that just isn't clicking for me. Most of the people that are...

Ok, here it is. Hubpages edited some of my hubs to "make them better" so they can be featured and moved to vertical sites. If I undo their "corrections" I risk having that hub removed...

I just visited a Hub yesterday by a new Hubber. It was called "Hate Trumps Hate." The author is a conservative, but did not vote for Trump. She was writing about the persecution she and other...

Is there a way within Hub Pages to see which articles are only receiving Hub traffic? I try to beef up the low performing Hubs but it would help to know which Hubs have no outside traffic. Or is the score of...

If an Editbot visits your pages are these visits included in our Stats. I wonder if anyone else has seen a big increase in traffic since the stats page became inundated with little red exclamation marks?
