I am not understanding the point of the traffic rising and traffic falling stats. Is it used by hubpages to see if they will keep your article featured? If so, than I see that as an unfair way to make that decision. Why? Because traffic will rise and fall a lot. The only way to keep traffic going for a long period of time is for the author to constantly advertise, which will end up costing a lot more money than an author would ever make on hubpages.
Otherwise, I don't see the need to have an arrow showing me that my hub has a few less or a few more visitors than yesterday. That is the nature of things. One day I will get lots of view and other days I will not. It feels like I am being pressured to keep my pages constantly viewed by the same amount of people everyday. Which is not going to happen because I don't have the money to advertise and keep the traffic coming on such a consistent basis.
I can see by the numbers how many people visited each of my hubs. That is all I need. So, I say stop pressuring your authors and get rid of the traffic rising and traffic falling stats.
You seem to be very new here and as such do not have a good grasp of what goes on with this site or how it works.
Those arrows do not exist for the purpose of pressuring writers. They are simply an indication of how things are going in terms of daily page views, and most of us here like the arrows because they alert us to potential problems.
As for advertising, etc...what in the world are you talking about? None of us here advertise our work other than to share it on social networking sites, which is totally free.
There are a few exceptions, very few, who pay to produce and disseminate business cards, etc...but they are the minority.
If you produce quality work that is searchable and readable, you will not have to worry about arrows or numbers.

Instead of being addicted to the Stats page and getting frustrated by its inefficiency, I suggest we get rid of hub scores and hubber scores and stats. Just keep us informed on a daily basis of earnings. This would free...

We had this same problem a couple of weeks ago and it was resolved. Same problem again today though, so I'm reporting it. (If we don't report problems, how can we expect them to be fixed?)1 day stats are...

If an Editbot visits your pages are these visits included in our Stats. I wonder if anyone else has seen a big increase in traffic since the stats page became inundated with little red exclamation marks?

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.
