This is actually two separate questions.
(1) Why did HubPages' Quantcast rating drop so much yesterday? It was #75. The day before it was at #66.
(2) Is something weird going on with the Following function? I received an e-mail about a new follower. But my number of followers is the same as before, and the new name did not appear in my feed. I thought perhaps they had followed me and then unfollowed soon afterward.
Out of curiosity, I checked out the Hubber's profile, and I saw their name in their own feed as their own follower! Is that actually possible? It seemed to me to indicate a glitch of some kind.
I don't know about the Quantcast issue, but yes, I have received email about a new follower. Strangely, I can very well remember that he had already followed me before, this is the third time the same person is following me!
I know that sometimes Hubbers will decide to unfollow for one reason or another. I do that myself. I suppose it could happen that that person keeps changing their mind. But depending on how long a time interval occurs between Follows, it could also be a glitch that you are seeing.
I'm very curious about the person I mentioned who followed themself.
It appears there have been some other problems with Follower E-mails!
Sometimes I get an email saying someone is following me, then when I go to my profile they are not there until I hit refresh, or I check fan mail.

What has your experience been. Did you notice that the more people you followed, the more people followed you? Did you ever start following people just because you wanted more followers? I have been pretty selective in...

Jeez, I check my stats this morning and it's a disaster. I run to Quantcast and discover it's all of HubPages and not just me. What the heck is going on? I even rushed to a calendar website to see if there was something...

Since last week, my traffic (page views) has been decreasing. Hope not because of someone stealing my hubs as is happening so damned frequent recently. I will be at a lost if I am also a victim as I am not...

I get seriously ticked when I see that I have a new follower and then find out that "two minutes ago" they have signed up to follow 6 or 8 other hubbers. There is no way that anyone who does that can...

Wouldn't it be great if we could de-fan a follower? If your asking, "why in the world would you want to do that?" Let me tell you. Recently I have been gaining quite a few followers which actually helped push...
