Anyone else having wickedly varying numbers between view reported and views on analytics...
One hub in particular of mine is showing on the main account screen as having 6-7 times the actual views that are showing in analytics and HP's traffic sources screen.
Anyone know why this would happen?
HP Stats are not accurate In fact they are often freeze due to some bug.
My HP stats shows more views so I figured that because HP records views from the site and my own views while analytics records mostly search engine traffic and subdomain traffic. I don't think my own views count in analytics. I could be wrong.
Hubpages stats shows your views over 24hours, Analytics would show your views for that particular day
I am confused. When I look at my total views, ever, am I looking at my own views too? How can it possibly be helpful for a system to count the author's own views?
As for Google Analytics, perhaps a site of this size could require that Google do a better accounting for the difference than "this is our secret".
Yes, HP could discount your views. It's not that hard to set Analytics to ignore them also (you can do that yourself, if you wish).
However: If you have any quantity of traffic where it makes any sense to look at it in hopes of gleaning information, you have enough that YOUR views are an insignificant and meaningless blip of noise. If you have so little traffic that your views are at all important, there is nothing of any value to you in Analytics anyway - the sample size is far too small for you to draw any conclusions.

Well, its official, my hubs are all down about 39%. Strangely enough my profile views are up to 40%. This is very odd cause usually my profile views are never that high. Has anyone else experienced this? Maybe its just...
