Stats - The Unswallowable Pill?

    I am too ashamed/embarrassed to give real figures, but I've just been away for a few days and logged on to check my stats.

    Figures have plummetted to 11% of what they have been for the past 30-40 months or so!!

    Is it me? Hubpages? Or stats reporting?

      Sometimes, hub statistics show data for the past few hours but it's marked as 24 hours. It's an error which I know Hubpages is doing something about.
      That's why you need Google Analytics on your phone so as you can know when these statistics have gone crazy.

      I made a new forum thread with related updates.
      You can find it here.

    It's the stats playing up again. Same here - about 15% of normal. It should be fixed soon.

      Ah good.  Not me then!  It's "fixable" if it's not me smile

      It's put a right dampener on my motivation today though!  Oh well, there's always tomorrow.

    I am also suffering from the same issue.. My stats shows less than 10% of normal traffic to my hubs.... sad

    I am also suffering from this stat. Just imagine I logged in a few minutes ago and I only have 22 traffic. The lowest that I have in 4 years. What´s going on? I am everyday here and active in reading, commenting and sharing. I think the more active that I am here, the poor stats and hubscores and Hubber score I have. Very disappointing!

      Those stats look dismal this morning. Yikes!  This is one of those days I am glad we have a forum where we can check to see if others are seeing what we are.

    Here's where Google Analytics comes into its own.  In spite of my Hub stats looking the worst ever, GA shows a surprisingly good day so far

      To be honest, I always forget about GA.  I'll log on and see what that shows....

    Well that's depressing I now have zero views despite 50+ hubs. I don't have a lot of views in general but they've been steadily increasing until today that is.

    Think (hope) that there must be something wrong with the stats at the moment as my total views over the last 24 has practically flatlined but GA shows views as more or less the same as usual.

    I wonder whether earnings reflects the inaccurate stats or whether it sorts itself out in the end and readjusts to what the total views actually were.

      Earnings statistics come from the advertisers. Every time someone views an ad, the ad itself is reporting this data back to the advertisers and this data is separate to that used by HubPages. Therefore, there's no issue with earnings unless Google or another advertising partner has problems.

    I haven't looked at GA for ages.... it's showing more activity than my hub stats would appear to be offering.  Right now it's showing 2.5x the number of visitors that hubstats are showing.

    Pfft... it's all a waste of time really, me pontificating about what's going on.  I'll have some chocolate and see if it changes by magic and I suddenly get a rush of readers smile

    My dashboard shows about 2% of the views my hubs usually get. Yesterday it was about 50% of the usual amount.

    Does anyone know if yesterday was part of the stats bug?

    You can see disagreeing stats on your individual hubs if you click stats at the top of a hub and then click on 'day' in the tabs.

      Same here.

    Almost 95% drop here. But I worry no more as I like most others who have been used to seeing this regularly now know they are way off the actual.

    Mine is zero, too. Something's definitely off here.  My hub scores show in reverse order lately, too. I change that, but each time I leave that screen, I have to change it again when I return. Just something else to have to do. It should stay where I put it.

    Mine bottomed out at a complete zero too, since the last update.

    I don't think the stats are accurate right now, and they haven't been for a while. My stats are currently at 0 for everything but by checking on at least one of my hubs I can see that my Google rank hasn't changed. Don't let the glitches get you down!
