I am a bit curious that my Direct Traffic is showing a rise. Today Google Analytics showed that my traffic for yesterday alone was:
This is more or less is the trend for the past one or two weeks. Normally, my direct traffic would be just 10-17%. So, what has changed? Why is this happening? Especially, since I am not promoting my work through Facebook, or other social media yet. Also, I find few hubpages subdomain showing frequent traffic. Are these all related?
I am afraid I have no answer for you, Savio Dawson, but I hope the direct traffic bump is part of an overall increase- that would be lovely!
I'm interested in what answers you get because I've noticed quite a bit of direct traffic, which makes no sense to me. It can't be that there are that many people putting my Hubs in their favorites or whatever else leads to direct traffic.
It seems to me that if you get less Google traffic, the proportion of your traffic that is direct will go up--even though the actual amount stays the same.
My traffic patterns also seem somewhat odd. They seem to be more spread out over more hubs than usual, but the grand total is also less than usual.
And I guess this week is going to pretty much tell us how the entire summer is going to go...
I get the same feeling. My overall traffic is down, but it seems that the top performers have dropped more than lower traffic would indicate. The lower performers have to be taking of some of the slack and increasing some.
I would say, though, that the traffic over the weekend was low but not nearly as low as I would have expected for a three day holiday.
My traffic just dropped another 10% in the last couple hours. My main website isn't doing that hot either. Strangely, I feel like writing some more hubs.
Hah! I'm up 5% since last night; please lie to me and tell me that is a very significant number even though my top hubs are down over 50% from a couple of weeks ago? I feel in need of reassurance even if I know it's a straight out lie.
But I don't have anything to write about - maybe I'll go through everything and take a hard look at the interlinking, deleting those that pass muster but really aren't all that relevant. With the Penguin raising it's ugly head again that might be smart.

I'm so excited to see one of my hubs showing up in Featured Snippets. This is responsible for the sudden increase in traffic to the hub. A big thank you to editors and fellow hubbers.

I was checking stats on specific hubs to see where traffic is coming from, and it's strange. Is there a change?It's only showing Hubpages views and Google.com... what happened? Will our original stats return? I hope...

So I am pretty new to this, been here about 2 weeks. Anyways, I usually have around 40 visits a day or so. Today Hubpages is showing around 175 visits....anyone else having weird stats?

Well, its official, my hubs are all down about 39%. Strangely enough my profile views are up to 40%. This is very odd cause usually my profile views are never that high. Has anyone else experienced this? Maybe its just...

Hope this is the right forum. When I go to stats on one of my Hubs, it shows number of views but doesn't show traffic source. I'm using Windows 8 and the Firefox browser. Here's a screenshot.

I have never seen this before! Analytics shows that I have traffic, but HP's traffic sources is showing all zeros. Anybody else having this issue?
