I have some confusing information being reported on one of my hubs and I am not sure how to interpret it. Any ideas?
The Hub “ Christmas Villages, Department 56 Collecting” ranks at a 72 hub score, with 96 total page views since published 12/21/09. Which isn’t to bad, since it was published late for the topic, but the confusing thing is the associated slide show views.
These slide show views are at 504. Which indicates, I think, that people are scrolling through the slide show multiple times, for an average of 5.25 times per page view, which to me seems a lot.
Is this how I should be interpreting it, or is there something else happening that could be bringing traffic to the slideshow only?
The individual hub stats show 27 hits from hubpages, the rest from outside, mostly Google. Slideshow numbers are shown in parentheses without traffic breakdown.
if you're signed up for google analytics, you should be able to find out what search words are being used.
did you notice on your HP dashboard/Traffic Sources if you have visitors from google. images?
OIC. If that's the case, could it be that you're the one viewing the slideshow yourself?
Nope, have not revisted the hub other than once last couple of days to add a few tags in edit mode.
and the hub does come up on page 1 of google for search terms;
the hub tilte, which is a long search string, but also
"department 56 collecting"
But I do not see the pics anywhere on the images returns
I did find one link on an images search, listed on page 9,
but the link leads to my profile not the slideshow.
Then you might be right - visitors are viewing your slides more than average. Or you could politely ask your visitors if they viewed your slides with a poll. (I know it's a dumb suggestion, but think of the positive side.)
everything helps. I'm still trying to figure this whole thing out. Hell, the Writing is the easy part.
I believe that HubPages stats report slide views separately from page views? I had a hub that was getting close to 200 views a day in October, but most were slide views. I went in and disabled the slide show feature on that one, and then the page views started going up much more quickly while the slide views did not move after that.
Just my own observation...
