Hi hello, sometimes it is low, and sometimes it goes up, In my case during weekends, it is low, it is never consistent. Mostly it is seasonal as well, specially now, it is fall, things about fall, decorating, and football here in the US gets a lot of views, take care!
Is there a drastic change?
I am not sure as to where you are referring, but assuming it is in your "stats", the numbers are for the last 24 hours period. So, whatever clicks to your hubs you see in the past 24 hours will be reflected. If fewer people visit today than yesterday, it will "go down."
The only number that should always increase is the all time clicks in the last column. That is the only one that is a pure cumulation of all clicks.
I hope that helped.
Hello, Mutiny92, and can see now that I didn't make it clear. It is on 'My account' at the bottom the total numb er of clicks. I noticed that sometimes teh number goes down like 235 to 212 for instant. It is not by the 50 or 100 but it does go down. Thank you replying so quickly.
CTR depends on various factors. So just look at the average CTR, not to worry about CTR on any given day.
What do you mean?
You will probably need to flush out the question a bit more to get the answer you are looking for.
Hello, sunforged, very kind of you to spare me the time. Thank you. On my list call 'My Account' at the bottom the number of clicks go down sometimes. One minute they were, for example, 235 and when I look again after an hour or two they were 212. It doesn't happened very often but had again a day or two ago and not having a lot of clicks I want to cling onto every one of them lol.
Number of clicks is always going to vary from hub to hub. You cannot assume or even guarantee clicks, so there would be no reason to think that the clicks would remain steady at any point.
So rather than clicks the metric you are referring to is "views"
The stats are on a rolling 24 hour setting for views.
You arent losing views, just getting different amounts each day, which is to be expected.
All the answers you received pretty much touche don this.
No, no, I do know that the amounts are different each day. I am saying that on the same day, either morning or afternoon, within one hour or two the views went down. Is that right? Or did there go something wrong? Thank you for your reply. I am very grateful. I am sorry I am such a bother.
As sunforged says, you are referring to views, and these are on a rotating basis. Consider the following scenario:
Monday you get an unusual "slug" of views around noon, but the total for the day is about normal.
On Tuesday the views are spread out more normally over the day for the same number of total views. At 1:00 on Tuesday you will find the views for the past 24 hours suddenly decreasing as the "slug" from Monday disappears from the 24 hour section. The column to the right should still show the views from the "ever" column as continuing to increase steadily, if slowly.
Hope that helps...
Not being an expert in any way, I think it has to do with when the the count is updated. For example, if the count is updated at 10 and reflects the past 24 hours, and then is updated at 2 and reflects the past 24 hours, the time from 10 to 2 on the previous day is included in the second sample but not the first.
Views then would actually fluctuate quite a bit if there were lots of views during the 4 hour time period counted in one viewing period as compared to views in another time period.
It is like asking, "How come my views on Wednesday go down from my views on Monday?" They don't actually go down, they are just different. In this example, you have fewer views on Wednesday than on Monday. For me, views are definitely lower on some days.
This confusion being said, the answer to the OP is this is not much to be concerned about. This is perfectly normal and you should expect it to go down as often as it goes up. Hopefully, you can get a higher average which builds over time.
Thank you, Steven, for sparing your time to write such explicit comment. Yes, that makes sense. I know that from one day to the next day can be different but when I saw it within an hour or two and it happened twice or three times, it got me going. However, now I know and I shall rest my case, as they say. Thank you very much again.
