I was wondering if there was a way HP could allow users to block/stop their own views from being tracked. Blogger allows the user to "not track your own views" so you get a clear idea of your real views as in most cases a 1/3 of the views that are actually recorded are your own.
We can see our organic traffic but this way we can know how well our hubs are doing in the HP search as some visitors may search the site for topics while other Hubbers read our hubs as well. Plus The total views will be reflective of our actual views (which would not include each time we visit our own hubs).
That's a good question, Cardisa! I'll check with the team in this week's community meeting and see what they have to say. Even if we don't have the bandwidth to add the option (though we might), there might be another simple workaround.
I would LOVE for HubPages to create such a feature.
Using Google Analytics info not only allows you to view stats minus your own views, you get much more diverse and accurate stats than what is offered via the extremely basic info here.
Thanks for the recommendation, relache! Cardisa, we came to the conclusion that this would be the best way to go after discussing the issue in today's community meeting.
Unless you're looking at your own hubs a lot, I don't see that it would make that much of a difference in overall views? I usually check GA for a more detailed analysis.

The stats have frozen again, and have not been updated for 12 hours (heading for the weekend). Earlier in the week they were stuck for 3 days. That means that the stats are only OK, twice a week - very...

I have one hub today that reports 10 views and 1,124 slide show views.

I want to see each month on it's own, not just the past 30 days. Is this possible? I don't see how else a person is supposed to accurately track their progress.

My total current view count for "1 day" is less than the amount I usually get on a good day for my 2 top performers. I have 85 hubs, 17 on niche sites. Something is not right. Anyone else?

I've mentioned it before, but I'm a short-term goal kind of guy. Well, as of yesterday afternoon my goal was 2,000 views. I left it alone from there until I woke up this morning, at which time I found my...
