Lol. I am not really worried about it. Just thought it would weird. I get regular referrals from another users page. Today I notice that I have -1 views from him! I have never seen that before. I am seeing it in my traffic sources page in Hubpages. I even cleaned the screen thinking maybe there was something on it! I have seen my traffic drop, but never in to the negatives! Yipes!
I had -3 views from somewhere the other day - I was wondering about that myself! Definitely weird.
I am thinking the person who was referred was sucked in to a black hole and sent somewhere else in the multiverse, so not only did it retract the view, it set it back a view. I have only had one reader slip through the multiverse you have had 3!
I'm also seeing some negative views when I looked at my traffic sources. I don't think I've ever seen or noticed this before. What could this mean?
I've been here for 3 years and I've seen these from time to time. It isn't anything to worry about. I think it is caused by a computer glitch.
Negative views... wouldn't that mean these readers were forgetting what they'd seen?
Or maybe they just didn't like it: that would be negative, right?

Looking down my list of traffic sources I have two search sites (avg and comcast) that each say "-1" views over the last 24 hours. What in the world does that mean? I assumed it's a stats glitch or...

Has anyone else seen their views double the last two days? What on earth is going on?
