I have blue triangles by a few of my hubs and I am wondering what they mean.
For example this one:
I think I am right in saying it means viewing going down, I will take a look at your hubs, and if you get a red triangle you know they are now going up again...
I also have a few red ones. The ones with the blue triangles by them received a lot of views at first, too, so hopefully over time the search engines will catch them and give them a boost.
You also sometimes get more than one red triangle, and that usually means traffic is soaring on that hub. I got two or three or so the other day, with over 300 views out of nowhere- and it was all from search.yahoo.com.
Nice! Yahoo traffic converts (ad clicks) very well.
Any idea why Yahoo traffic converts more than Google traffic?
I have no idea why. However, I wouldn't shun any Google traffic. I've just seen more ad clicks coming from Yahoo search than Google search.
yahoo is easier to rank for if you have the keywords in your url or title
Yeah, if people coming from search engines click, you will get more money per click seeing as it's targeted traffic. That's partly the reason why I stopped linking from forums seeing as your impressions go down and you get smart-priced.
The blue triangles mean traffic is going down on that particular hub. The red ones mean traffic is rising. It could simply mean that that particular hub had 7 views yesterday and none so far today. It doesn't necessarily have to mean a big drop. Only you can see the arrows, so if you have a hub that continues to drop, try posting a link to it on Twitter or FaceBook, or any other social networking sites to bring in more traffic.
Hubs generally fluctuate off and on. It wil probably go up again sooner or later.
if anyone is interested, I have 87 bookmark sites that you can submit your work too. Passwords and logins are a pain but you can get one password for all. Since Hubpages don't allow hotmail, you can't post the add button to submit all at one time but you can put in on your blog and submit from there. Haven't really done it yet, for I procrastinate but if you sould like to know more and how to do it, email me or leave a comment on one of my hubs and I will explain,
if the blue triangle is pointed down it means your page views are falling, if the blue triangle is pointed up it means you are colorblind.

I am a complete newb to HP and when checking my stats today saw a little blue triangle next to one of my hubs, so I see this means traffic has dropped, but can i get penalised for it? Or will the hub stop being...
