I was looking at my hubs, and one of them had 16 hits. I go back and look at it again and it has 15 hits. Another went from 4 down to 3. Is there a reason for this?
This within a period of less than 6 hours. I just checked it again, and hub that was at 16 is now down to 13.
When I posted this a few hours ago, the hub in question started at 5 hits, then jumped to 8 hits. I changed the title of all of my hubs. and this single hub jumped from 8 to 16, then when I checked it again it was down to 15. And checking it just 5 hours later it is down to 13. The rest have also gone down by 1.
I just find it kind of weird. My total hits also went down.
Total hits down? That is strange... There have been some problems with the Hub stat counters in the past, some make them go up randomly, some down, so perhaps that? Or maybe you viewed it yourself and that view was discounted? I'm just speculating here
If you want real stats, use Analytics. The stats provided by HubPages are the most basic.
Brimancandy, what you are describing it perfectly normal behavior for rolling stats.
Rolling stats means that it could go down or up from one hour to the next, it is the last 24 hours, not 'todays stats'.
On the other hand, my Hubpages statistics do seem to be a bit off at the moment, give Google Analytics a try!
My partner says that he sometimes looks at my hubpages. Could it be because we both use the same computer, that his views are being deleted? Even though he is not signed in?
I know that looking at the pages myself wouldn't. I'm not having any luck getting traffic, anywhere but at hubpages.
All views are recorded, logged in or not. Same Ip , same computer makes no difference.
Are you using Google Analytics yet? ...its the answer to all your stats questions

I saw where this issue has been addressed in the past and supposedly corrected. But for many weeks now, especially toward the end of the week and weekends, my HubPages stats will not update for hours and sometimes even...

The stats have frozen again, and have not been updated for 12 hours (heading for the weekend). Earlier in the week they were stuck for 3 days. That means that the stats are only OK, twice a week - very...

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...

14 hours is a long time to wait for an update.

I've been noticing lately that HubPages is saying I'm getting a good amount of traffic but the stats on Analytics aren't anywhere near that.Makes me think I'm getting back to how things use to be before the Google slap,...
