Just checked the account and we are having a blue triangle morning. Is it something we said? Why can't the HubPages genius team think of something consoling for these down days? A little note along the lines "cheer up it won't last" might ease the pain.
It's the second 'blue triangle' day in a row, although the total number of views has jumped by about 40%. Our most popular hubs have held steady, but the 'middling' ones are still suffering a dip. Why does this happen?
Me too!!!! Your right CMHypno, the only answer is to keep on writing. Don't be pressured into posting any old rubbish though. I ignore the down days when I'm concentrating on editing a new hub. Mine take ages before I can publish. Weekends can be weired.
Today is Saturday, so I expect to have blue triangles tomorrow morning. Saturday is almost always the worst day for us on Hubpages and also on our own website. This is especially the case if the weather is good. Here in England we are having a wonderful day of sunshine. On balance I'd rather have the sunshine than a whole row of red triangle.
I agree with you 2patricias, this kind of sunshine in England is too precious to waste. I have just been sunbathing in the garden, reading my book and soaking in the peace. After all there is always our long cold winter for obsessive hubbing!
We have always tried to publish new Hubs on Friday. (You will notice that this doesn't happen often as we are HubPage Slackers). However, this really doesn't make sense. It would probably be better to work out the day we get the most views.
If I get 2 views on one hub, I get a red triangle. If the next day I get none, blue triangle. Days go by with zero views and I get no triangles. Then I get one view, and a red triangle!! I dont thnk triangles have alot to do with actual views but its more a percentage thing. maybe?
Pat is definitely a Willie Nelson listener, although when Tricia rides in her car she is forced to join in the listening. Tricia's a bit more Paul Simons.
As of this evening we have 2 blue triangles and one red.
We think it is really a trends thing. Our all time top hub usually has about 10 views per day - and almost never gets a triangle. (That's our hub that is about pedicures but is mistaken for porn.) It's the Hubs that fluctuate without a pattern that get triangles.
On the evidence of the past few days, there is an inverse correclation between the weather and blue triangles. This morning we have a good crop of red arrows - and outside the sky is very grey and it looks like rain.
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...
Hey guysI'm new here and just trying to get a handle on everything. Everyone has been so great, kind and helpful in the few days I've been here. I feel like I've gained a new family.So suddenly there is a blue triangle...
