Maybe it's just me, but I find the stats page harder to read. It seems too crowded.
Is there any way to stretch the box wider and perhaps shade the slideshow views to make it easier to read?
Mine seem normal. I know they changed the layout over the course of my tenure here, but I'm not having any problems.
I'm sure it has always looked this way since they added the slideshow views, but for some reason, starting yesterday it looks so close together. I think shading would help define the separation between page views/slideshow views.
I have noticed from time to time, the "slideshow" views won't be on the statistics page. Yes, sometimes your statistic's page will not show every detail about "slideshow" views, but will show the "ever" of slideshow views.
The difference is probably what you are seeing now and why it looks crowded.
No, when I don't see the slideshow views, I don't even see the ever of them. Rebekah you may have crossed some traffic values where more space is taken in the columns? Maybe slideshows from a few 100 to 1000 or visits in the day increased in figures somewhere else.
That makes sense. That's probably what it is.
I just checked this morning, and the slideshow views aren't showing, and it looks normal.
It would be kind of awesome to "pull" stats from hubs (such as view durations, incoming links, rev potential stats which are currently only viewable on a hub by hub basis) and use this to customize our my account interface.
Then hubbers could have control over what kinds of stats they wish to regularly view.
That would be cool. But, do we have incoming links too? All I see is the *'s do you get the actual links?
Not on the HubPages interface, but there is a way to get the actual links. I'm cool with just the visual representation with asterisks, well not for incoming links... I don't really use the incoming links feature on HP. I will check out the actual links for an ego boost or to find a way to kind of help it become more popular (if someone blogs about my hub, I'll facebook like it, stumble it, whatever.)
That would be a nice feature, I agree. Sometimes we don't have time to check our hubs, especially those of you with hundreds.
I use analytics and Webmaster tools for more detailed info. It is interesting checking the incoming links.
I can't blame it on the wine last night because I didn't have any.
Hey RE...mine look fine...i bet you have lots of visitors...that's a good thing right?...you're running out of room
I wish we could pick what stats we want showing!
I have no interest whatsoever in slideshow views as I do not intend to put up photography hubs ever.
I'm also not particularly interested in having number of comments showing on the main stats page.
We already get bombarded by email and the notification thingy at the top of the page whenever there is a comment, so this column is not needed.
And hub score is the least relevant statistic of the lot!
I totally agree - all the rest I do want though.
Agreed. I mean, I like getting comments, but it doesn't really "do" anything for me to have a count on the stats page. Same with slideshow views. I can see how that's important, though, if you're into photography, but I'm not so I largely ignore the numbers there.
My stats get crowded sometimes and at other times they are fine...I think it is my computer memory rather than any other problem. I just go on at another time and all is fine.

I've been out of the loop for awhile here and I see there are many great improvements to HubPages in the meantime. What is the "incoming" links referring to under the new metric stat tabs?Thanks!

Can anyone share any advice for ways to check the number and location of webpages that are linking back to your hubs? I know there are quite a few commercial products available but as a small-timer, I'm currently trying...

HubPages provides statistics on our hubs that include, under "metrics," one or more asterisks indicating "Incoming Links. My question is this: Is there any way we can tell where these links are coming...

The listing for Photo views seems to appear randomly on our Statistics page. How about adding a tab to the page just to the right of "page views" where we can click on to see our photo views? Or a separate...

Hey Hubbers,If you've not taken a look at your statistics page, then I advise you do so. It appears as if Staff has completely eliminated the slideshow views as a statistic?If this was indeed the case and it wasn't...
