I would really appreciate it if the traffic graph for hubs had an explicit or set x-axis. As it is i cannot tell what the y-axis should be read against. Even just some tick marks would help when I am seeking to see how much traffic from each source is per week, month or whatever ?
That's one of those "little things" that drives me crazy.
I'd also like to see the main graph separated by search engine traffic vs. other traffic as well... sort of like they do with the individual hub graphs.
That's just me though...
Glad you brought this up! I'll bring it up in this Thursday's community meeting as a feature update suggestion. If it's something we can easily fix, we'll go for it! If not, we can probably still put it in the queue.
Simone, could you also see if there's a way to show the main stats graph with EITHER the total hubs written per day OR the cumulative number of hubs written over time? I realize that might be harder because the Y axis would need to change--it would be different for the person who had written 20 total hubs than for the person who had written 500. That way, we can see how the traffic grows (or not) as our number of hubs grows. Perhaps a toggle button to toggle between the two types of graphs, or put them one above the other and label them well so we're sure we know what we're seeing: totals or dailies.
x-axis? y-axis? Sounds like geometry to me--which is math--at which I totally SUCK, so you are may as well be speaking a foreign language--I have NO idea what that means or what you're talking about, or how it applies here.
This would be a great feature, my understanding of the current current graph function is that (depending on how long you've been on hubpages) it works out a figure based on an average of daily views.
While this is fine for basic historical recording it can be quite inaccurate as time wears on, especially as someone who's primary source source of traffic is very week-end driven, meaning that I don't see accurate representations of the highs and lows of my daily pageviews.
For example - my New Years Eve pageviews, which came in at something like 1400, shows as just over 400 on the graph, as I said, my understanding is that the views are combined with a certain figure of days surrounding it and worked out to an average, For someone like me (who's accurate graph would look like a mountain range, probably about 70 mountains if I were to guess ) this is a little frustrating
Hey psycheskinner! We discussed this in yesterday's community meeting, and we think it's probably best to utilize the great features already made available via Google Analytics for this. You can also look on distinct counts from each source in a Hub's stats box. I hope that helps!
I was aware I could use Analytics, but for a quick daily check on site stats would have been nice--especially as QAP seems to could only certain kinds of traffic. Oh well.
In order to get a number of a graph you need both sides to be clearly labelled. That is what I was asking for. So I could read what traffic I am getting from each source.

Just wanted to share this. Someone pinned or "flipped" one of my hubs on Flipboard, a magazine site. So I've had a ton of traffic all morning. I made my own magazine and the traffic magnified even more!...

This is a side by side comparison of my hub traffic compared to the Quantcast graph for the same last two year period. So, what are the implications? What are your experiences?

Just wondering if anyone here uses Y!Answers as a traffic source - it's a nofollow link but if you've ever googled a question you'll see there's nearly always a Y~Answer near the top of the first page. Meaning that when...

I made a small change to the hub stats graphs a few minutes ago. You now get one graph that shows you the lifetime traffic for a hub with the top 3 referrers stacked in different colors. The graph no longer...

I haven't been as active on HP during the past few months, but I started again last month. However, I can't seem to find the traffic graph that used to pop up over the hubs in the 'My Account' section. Is it that they...

i just noticed a few days ago that I received more traffic from my Pinterest page than google! How is that possible? is anyone else seeing this?
