Has anyone had a traffic increase to hubs that never really made that many views and are now getting more? I have multiple hubs that are getting red flags that could barely get a view in a day.
These hubs are not making hundreds of views or anything, but there is an increase.
Ironically, my best performing hubs have dropped some since the major increase last month.
I've been seeing that ever since the big bump in traffic. 10 or 12 red arrows each day and usually on hubs that don't get much or even zero.
What I don't understand is why no blue arrows. The only blues I get are when traffic drops to 0 on a given hub. Wish I knew just what makes a red or blue arrow; how many more views today than yesterday or however they do it.
I thought the blue / red thing was a comparison with the previous 24 hours? Seems that way for me.
I have blue arrows, but I think it makes sense because I had a hub that was receiving 2000+. I did not think it would remain there constantly.
The arrows are only an indicator of a certain % increase or decrease within 24 hours (I think) or something because you could have an article that gets 10,000 views daily then drop down to 5000 views, but that is still a lot - if you know what I mean.
That's what I have always assumed, but it doesn't seem to be the same now. One hub has gone from 80 views to 127, but no arrow. That's over a 50% increase. Nor did it see a blue when it dropped from 140 to 80.
It's almost as if the arrows are confused because of high traffic. Sooner or later I should be finding some blues as traffic varies day to day, but the only ones are always on hubs with 0 views. I don't think I've seen a blue on anything with more than 1 view since the subdomain change.
I thought that the last Panda played with keywords again, downgrading some - if I can say so - and raising others. That's why some hubs are getting more visits then ususal.
I have seen a lot blue arrows. My traffic has gone way way down. It made a bit of a recovery a few weeks back but seems to be dropping again.Its down to about 30 hits a say now from about 350 pre panda. Any one have any advice on how to recover. Looks like the site is recovering in general.Have a look at this link.
Yes... the same thing is happening with me. Not so much today, but in the last couple of weeks I've had some strange spikes in traffic and red arrows all over the place. My traffic as a whole has been on a steady increase with a lot more Google traffic in general.
I've been spending a lot of time tweaking old hubs. I've stripped them all of RSS feeds and link capsules to get rid of unrelated links or duplicate content. I've also been trimming the tags a lot and even changing the titles. Those things seem to be helping.
Once I have all my hubs in good working order, I really want to start adding more. I'm pretty happy with this up-trend right now! Let's hope it keeps moving forward
A lot of us are turning into weird traffic watchers, obsessing over that sign and this portend. It will take several months of stability before I don't feel obliged to read the runes.

It is my first time to have seen lots of red upward triangles to indicate good traffic on my hubs. Thank you Hubpages and Google.

This is very, very, unfortunate, but it seems I have been penalized by a Google Alg or something. I have OVER 100 HUBS that have BLUE ARROWS. My traffic went down earlier this year a bit, but stayed consistent for...

I don't get it. Every day, every single day, I have a virtual sea of blue arrows on my hubs. Right now, I show 22 blue arrows and 2 red ones. Almost all on the bottom hubs - those hubs getting 5 or...

I have no idea what happened, but a ton of my hubs just got double red flags! My traffic went from a couple thousand views daily to nearly 10,000 overnight!!This is insane! Has this happened to anyone else?
