RESOLVED: Change to pageviews

    This is not a compliant, but I've noticed that one of my most popular hubs had a drop in page views. It went from about 184,000 views to 172,000 views. I'm just wondering how this happened and what it means.

      Holy cow...that's a lot of views for one hub. I'm fairly new and obviously need to figure out what I should be writing about...lol.. Anyhow, I usually get around 100 views a day and my hubs haven't gotten any views at all today.  Does adwords have something to do with that because I went to google + to see if I could find out something and it's talking about big changes that happened in adwords? I really don't know what any of that is all about.

      Liam,
      Are you talking about the cumulative (total) views for the Hub?
      Can you provide the name and/or URL for the Hub?

        Yes, the cumulative total. It dropped over 12,000 views in a day. Since then I have been attempting to run my own analysis on pageviews with no success. I was prepared to brush the disparity off to some glitch, but the fact that my sub-domain is inaccessible to third party analysis tools makes me somewhat suspicious and leery of this site.

          I just looked at the stats for that Hub and as you described it currently shows 172754 total views.
          Do you have something that shows the 184,000 view count?

          Do you have any other examples of Hubs you believe have had a drop in the total views?

            I don't have a snapshot, but my memory is not defective. I know this because I was using the figures as proof to prospective employers that I not only write, but have a following.

            I have not been paying particular attention to other hubs, but this is the one with the most views. It is quite popular for such an obscure topic.

              @Liam I wasn't challenging your memory, just trying to see if we had some sort of documentation from which to work as the more details, the more actionable the information I can present to our engineering team.

                Don't be defensive. I'm simply telling you I know what I saw.

                  I have sent the information to our engineering team.

      I don't know if this is the case here, but HP does reduce counts sometimes. They've done it to me. It was to compensate for the erroneous slide view counts. The adjustment wasn't enough to affect my purdy accolade. I was fine with it. big_smile

        I hope that's not the case. I'm more interested in accuracy. I seriously doubt that over ten thousand reads got un-read.

          Actually they reduced mine by 15K as I recall. Slide view counts really go spastic sometimes. Of course this might not be your situation all. Whatever, HP is darned responsive to potential problems these days. Whatever is going on, I've got faith it will be resolved. smile

          Edit: that 15K was my entire subdomain, not just a single hub. Hang in there! smile

    One more thing I noticed that I forgot to mention is that mine hasn't been updated for the past 5 hours so maybe, hopefully, I will have some views when they finally get around to updating.

    @ LiamBean   Matthew Meyer is HP staff, so he came on to check this out. My iPhone is behind time, so you may have already answered about the hub.

    For months now things have been working oddly for Hubpages associated content. The amount of time screwing around with trying to figure out why could potentially be spent better elsewhere. I  hate to say that also. This used to be a really great place to write. Seems like the site is REALLY BROKEN.

      I just made $40 on one article. Over 9,000 views and not at Hubpages.  Yup. It's broken. I'm moving my best stuff out if something big doesn't happen soon.

    For 40 bucks, I would be moving it all out. Why wait for HP, nothing changes here, just that it continues to get worse.

    Earlier today, my "Traffic sources" page included a negative two for the number of visitors from Facebook. So yes, the stats tallies seem to be off.

    I don't care about that, as long as ad impressions and sales are calculated correctly.

    Lwelch, You are doing better than me today.  I have 70 hits for today total.  Yesterday, I was a little over 200, and about two weeks ago it was a bad day if I didn't get 300 hits for my total of 100 + huba.
