What stats do you look at most?

    Just out of curiosity. Sometimes I get confused because I always look at the number of views in one day and I feel like that isn't the way to go. When looking at hub views, do you look at 1, 7, or 30 days most? I think one of them has to be the best option when noticing trends in traffic. I really should start exporting csvs and getting a better look at my overall year :p

      I look at how many page views for the day I am getting, then look at the hubs that are bringing in traffic (and the ones that aren't) looking for any kinds of trends.

    I look at the Google traffic over 24 hours. As long as that's funneling in, I'm good to go. I look at the most popular hubs I've got over 7 days when looking at including my own links to include in my newer hubs. I don't do too much over-analyzing.

    I look at "1 day" most, and double click on the column, so I can look at my hubs in order of most visits each day, throughout the day.  I also click on the "published" column, and look at how my newest hubs are doing.

    None of them.  I write to be writing and because I thoroughly enjoy it.  The stats mean little to me.

    I look at total 24-hour views and earnings, and also at my Adsense earnings.

    In the end, all that really matters to me is earnings. I know I should dig around Analytics etc. However, I don't even have time to make back-links let alone look at other stuff.

    Weekly traffic for individual articles, daily sales and what sold on my Amazon Associates links, and average monthly income/article on each site where I publish.

    The traffic stats on HP's dashboard are emotionally satisfying, but really can't help with tracking trends. For that you need Google analytics.

    I check my "1 day" views at least three times a day.  As "1 day" views is rolling 24-hr views, this gives me a good idea if my traffic is holding (relief), going up (alleluia!), or going down (Oh no no no no please!!! and slowly look through my hubs to see which ones got shot with the blue arrows). smile

    Just out of curiosity, who else here double-clicks their one-day to bring the happy news to the top? I've always assumed it's everyone, but who knows? big_smile

    As I visit daily I mostly look at traffic for today and earnings from yesterday.

    Sadly, I check my traffic daily, it is a compulsion. I try if I have time to check the traffic I have from Google and Bing. I wish the summary section would detail the traffic from Google and Bing and I wish I could turn off my views which have no relevancy.

    Daily views are important I believe.  They let me know what is happening with each hub.  If there is a significant rise or fall I always look at the stats on the hub itself and see what is happening. 

    The stats gives me a daily, weekly and monthly view too but also more importantly where the views  are coming from.  Search engines, websites or Hubpages views.
