Why are my pageview numbers drastically different lower today?

    I deleted about 10 of my under performing older hubs yesterday and now my readership has really tanked for ALL OF MY REMAINING HUBS.  My best performing hub that sees an average of 75 visitors per day is only showing a total of 9 views.  My total view for today is at (24)!?!?!?  Have I been penalized for deleting under performing hubs or is Hubpages experiencing technical issues.

      Nearly everyone is in the same situation - it's down to the Christmas period. Everyone is busy doing other things and not searching the internet. It won't have anything to do with deleting hubs.

      No I do not think there can be any penalty for this

    The entire US is becoming distracted by Christmas, which is where HubPages gets the bulk of their traffic.

    Expect to see very low performance and traffic through New Years.

    You should never delete a hub,but build on it as one day it may make you richer.
    Xmas is a time when all are leaving to visit and they are not interested in hubpages or anything else but ham and turkey..

    So some reason I always get a surge of traffic every year on Christmas night and the next day.
    I always assumed it was people trying out new computers they got for Christmas or people trying to escape Family...LOL

    I really hope there is a glitch!  My numbers are pitiful.  169 views and I have 192 hubs!

    It could be a problem with the stats reporting, it has been pretty random the last few weeks.  At the moment my stats page is seeing a near 50% drop, however Google analytics, and individual stats, seem to be on par as normal.

    Get Google Analytics, that way if your traffic really is dropping, you can investigate why.

    It was definitely a problem with stats reporting.  I had something like 200 recorded with Hubpages tracker and around 1100 on analytics.  That's still a big drop off from where I was at but not nearly as dire.

      I agree I have had my stats all over the place in the last two weeks.

    Christmas is the guilty! lol Well, you should also think of writing articles that attract much more visitors....

    Maybe it will go up after Christmas though? You know on Christmas day once the presents have all been opened and everyone has eaten too much and are getting irritable with having the whole family there en masse.

    Maybe they will sneak upstairs (or down the hall) to surf the net?
