Normally my Hubstats are consistent with my Google Analytics stats but for the past couple of days my Google statistics have been showing around 500 more views than Hubpages have been showing, is there still a problem going on with Hubpages reporting? jimmy
Sorry Mathew, but that answer is just not good enough, I have been here for years and my stats have remained almost similar to those of google. Today my stats are almost 1500 behind Google and you cannot blame that on different times. there is a problem and it needs to be addressed I feel that you have just fobbed me of like a newbie.....jimmy
I agree too. Something aint right. At the time the stats froze yesterday they were way off. The drops shown in the HP stats were not reflected in GA. Nobody expects the numbers to match, but if HP numbers drop by 1200 views overnight and remain low until the next day the trend should be reflected in GA.
All of my accounts showed various degrees of wackiness before the traffic froze up. HP showed traffic falling, where GA showed it rising. HP said my numbers were plummeting and GA said they are the best since the Panda attack.
It goes up and down. Sometimes, they are reporting 7 hours before figures and at other times, 37 or 47 hours old figures. Only day before yesterday, I had the stats upto 7 hours before. So there is something wrong in updates. I hope they are looking these things and fixing them.
I'm going to add my two cents worth because that's all I'm earning these days.
Stats have been stuck again for two days. I have a new hub with dozens of comments yet shows NO views. It is impossible to know what is happening because you cannot compare HP to Google Analytics. After posting the problem several times over the past few weeks, I still feel like we are getting the run-around from Matthew who I also believe is being ignored by tech support. Even my most popular hubs are not generating comments now which makes me wonder about traffic in general.
I am frustrated and quickly losing all confidence in what we have here on HP and think the lack of a statement by the administrators and technical folks says it all. Nobody at the top really cares. This makes me sad because there are so many loyal and good writers here helping them make a living wage. That's more than the rest of us are doing, I think.
No panic here, but mine have been frozen for about three days. The last updated message was 30 hours + a few days ago, which caught my attention. It seems like it used to run two or three hours most of the time. Today is 2+ days, which led me to check for forums. Are others, particularly those who are seeing huge discrepancies with GA, seeing the multiple-day refresh times noted as well? It's interesting that hub scores keep changing during these days that views have not refreshed.
Yes. I too notice my hub scores changing all these days, where as view stats remain same for a day or two or even a couple of days. I wonder how it happens. While they are able to revise the scores and even earnings, they are unable to update the traffic analytics. Very astonishing.
Thanks. Good to know it's larger than my account, at least. It happened just after publishing a new hub, or might not have noticed. It froze up shortly after....so the new hub had about twelve views and then no more. Seemed odd that it would stop getting views after sharing it.
I think pageviews for payments are tracked by another company that actually pays HP for the views. The HP counter is for "our convenience." But decidedly inconvenient when it causes people to want to leave HP because they believe their views are plummeting when they are not.
Rely on GA and your earnings to know what is really happening.
What we are seeing, looking back on last weekend, is a duplicate error on the stats. Frozen again for three days and probably will thaw out sometime tomorrow, on Monday. Must be the weekend weather somewhere that creates these issues or when staff is not on duty the hamster in the wheel stops running!
Hubs just updated stats for the first time in days. I was watching Analytics and I was OK as far as traffic. Today Hubs updated and it seems the same as Analytics. I didn't look hit for hit, but in the general average it matched.
I know there have been a lot of changes and I really appreciate that. I also am looking forward to the new hub layout...but...with disappointment.In any business, one must first make their assessment about what works...
There is a huge disparity between my Hub stats and my stats in Google Analytics. Hub stats shows me getting 300+ page views per day. Google shows about 20 per day. This disparity started around one month...
I am not very intelligent when it comes to traffic stats, so sue me..lolWhy is Google Analytics stats more than the HP stats for the same period? Before you assume that Google logs my visits to my hubs, let me clarify...
I know, this is the umpteenth thread on traffic - just wanted to check if others saw any odd patterns the past few days? My numbers climbed a bit, and were holding steady at a good number, and literally overnight...
It was 30 seconds back in o2. Hubpages is liable over this 7+ hour stint.Yes your income and exposure is effected and yes that is sub - industry standards. It also suggests a revenue siphon. Of do you trust...
