This morning I had 44 visitors to my hub and now it says that there is only 41. How can that be?
This gets asked all the time. I wondered about it at first, too.
As I understand it, this stat covers the past 24 hours, but it may be updated several times a day.
So if you got a bunch of hits early in the cycle, and you check again a few hours later when the overall number of views was down slightly, the number would be lower.
If I check my stats at 8 a.m. it covers the 24 hour period back to 8 a.m. the day before.
If I check them again at noon, it covers the period for the 24 hour period back to noon the day before.
It is called "sliding window". It shows how many visitors came during last 24 hours, 7 days, or 30 days. Because of that it goes up and down constantly. The only figure that always grows is in the column called "ever".
This question is also listed in the FAQ sticky thread, just for future reference.

There is a lot of anger and/or frustration relating to the 'pending' system and most of it is down to the fact that it's not clear why there are exceptions - this is justified and there should be open-ness. (Note this...
