When I logged in this morning, I had 73 views (around est noon time), by 3-4pm I had 46 or 47, now nearer to 8pm I am at 41 views under the 1 day column.
Why are are my numbers going lower and bouncing around so much?
And could this be why I went from a hard earned 40 odd cents a day to 6 cents over the course of 3 days? I just noticed this downward trend on my views throughout the day.
Thank you much for any help.
Because views are on a ROLLING 24 hour cycle...
You need to look at the "ever" column...
That column shows a 6 point increase since this morning.
But yesterday it was even higher by close to 100 views.
Example, not real numbers
today I started at 2000
now I am 2006
yesterday I was at 2100.
But ROLLING must be the keyword here ... thanks.
You're welcome... and yes, "rolling" is the operative word.
One last question, and I promise won't bug no more ...
If the ever column is not accurately reflecting my counts, as it to is fluctuating up and down (cause of that rolling thing) ... how does one see what their page view count is overall to get an idea on how well received or popular a hub is.
Do I need to run a separate program to gauge an accurate assessment of how many page views a article gets, cause of this rolling thing?.
Use Google Analytics: http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/sett … -analytics
Google Adsense will show you as well.
Hope that helps and no you're not bugging me!
Thank you, much appreciated wordscribe43.
Just more HP numbers to ignore due to something way above my head. HP really needs one column that does not work on this rolling principle.
And Jesus .. just for you 'rolling'
Your ever column shouldn't be rolling though... The only way I've seen mine go DOWN is if I've unpublished hubs (because their view tallies will disappear as well as the hub). Have you deleted a hub?
However, I still think GA is the best way to see what's really going on traffic-wise.
The "ever" column is not rolling. If that column is going down there is something odd happening. It is to record the number of views since signing up with HP and should only go up.
There is, and has been for months and months, a problem with slideshow views though. That whole section comes and goes all the time - here one minute and gone the next. Is it possible you are confusing hub views with slideshow views as that last section appears and disappears? I know I do.
Yes in my second post, those numbers reflected that column - the ever one, as I was told to look at ever, so I did. I haven't deleted any hubs in a while like a few weeks now. Not sure what the slideshow thing is, I don't think I have ever seen it.
Maybe I messed up recording the numbers. Each night before bed, I jot down the numbers at the end of the column in bold, to compare to the next morning. I am gay like that. The ever column was at least 100 higher last night than where it is tonight.
I will see if it does it tomorrow, to remove the possibility I fudged my numbers when writing. Shoot, I think I will cover my butt and take a screenshot lol.
Thank you everyone, greatly appreciated.

I just checked my traffic sources and saw that my numbers are going backwards in several areas! That's a first!

I lost about twenty-five percent today of my earnings today? How can that be?

I was just on "my account" and see that the slideshow view stats are no longer listed. Is this something that has been done away?

Hello Hubbers!I'd like to give you a heads up about slideshow stats going away (sometime around the end of the week). We're removing them because:1. The information they provide has not been particularly useful2. The...

There is a huge disparity between my Hub stats and my stats in Google Analytics. Hub stats shows me getting 300+ page views per day. Google shows about 20 per day. This disparity started around one month...
