Should we trust our view stats?

    I have one hub today that reports 10 views and 1,124 slide show views.

      I thought porn hubs weren't allowed here!?!

        This  one has some naked statues in it... maybe that was it.

    Hey Rochelle,

    Hub views and Slideshow views are not the same. I suggest using Google Analytics to figure out your true views.

      I know they are not the same-- but these stats were for the same hub for  one day: ten hub views and 1,124 slideshow views.  Also, no other hubs had a slideshow view for the day.

        Now, that's strange. hmm

    Are you sure you column titles are lining up right?  I know mine don't so I have to count across to know which column goes with which heading.

      Yes, they do tend to display  in an offset manner, but the stats seem to check out the way I saw them.

    That said, I have one hub with 6 visits and 141 slide views in the last day.  That does seem odd.

    I wish I could suppress the slideshow view figures. They seem unrelated to hub reads. Obviously I want people to read what I write. I couldn't care less whether they look at the pictures!

      I'm not that focused on slide shows either-- and the stats take up a lot of room on the account page, but slide views do increase viewer time on pages, so I guess that is a good thing.

        The slideshow views don't always appear. There are times where your statistic page will only have the "ever" total and not individual totals, such as 7 days or 30 days.

        So it really don't matter.

          Looks like they took them off for the time being, at least. So, maybe they were not working correctly.

    I don;t see how they could be accurate.  How would each user see the hub once but the slideshow ten times or more?
