I just don't get it? Need Help From Internet Gurus Please?

    Hey Resident Internet Gurus,

    Okay, this is really weird. So weird I have to share. I have one hub "Individual Rights vs General Morals" and the thing that is weird about it is that HubPage reset all the counters, like "tweets", "facebook" when they made the switch to subdomains. Now, saying that, the hub above I mentioned has been tweeted- 2953 times. Now, I know I tweet it almost everyday and only do it once. The subdomain switch was made during the summer of 2011- so I know I couldn't have tweeted it out that much. When I looked at about a month and half ago it was around 1535 tweets? This has me perplexed. I make no money from the hub and the hub isn't re-tweeted enough to compensate for the difference. When I click on the "twitter" link to see the tweets, it only shows my most recent tweet? I don't get it. hmm

    Is there anything or any way I can find out more about what is happening with this hub?

    Any help would be helpful.

    Thank you in advance.

      Is it possible that other people are tweeting your hub?   The comments alone suggest a healthy amount of traffic to this hub.

        I'm not doubting it being tweeted out. I want a way to find out more about those tweets considering I am a member of twitter, but don't see them.
        Actually, most of the comments are hubber related. Not to mention, it's hubscore is 78 and very few marks? If people are tweeting out the hub, then not voting it up or down and leaving no other marks...it doesn't make sense.

          Ignoring the number of tweets and looking at the comment about not seeing the tweets, I have noticed the same thing about hubs of my own that I have tweeted. I often find the only time I get notifications about who has retweeted my hub it is either someone I am following on twitter or someone who is following me on twitter.
          If someone with no connection to my twitter account tweets a hub of mine I do not get to see the tweet nor do I get to know the identity of that person. it is indeed odd.

    Ray, maybe our new sub-domains get reset after the change? I would expect the tweets to be domain-name - specific ... so I would understand if they were reset. Email the team and ask them - they might help.

      Yes Cheeky, all the twitter and facebook numbers were reset to zero when HubPages made the sub-domain switch and they told that in advance when someone asked.
      They were reset to zero. Which is why I am perplexed about this.
      I have more faith in some of my resident Gurus than I do in the team.

      Cags, my tweets keep going back to zero, especially every time there is a Google upgate. Well not sure if that's the cause but most of my hubs have 0 tweets that should have double or tripple digits.

        Hey Cardisa, I don't know anything about them going back to zero except that when they made the switch over to sub-domains both twitter and facebook were reset to zero. If your continues to reset to zero then I suggest you contact HubPages directly to see what the problem could be. Mine don't reset.

        I'm looking for a way to track who is doing it. And I don't care whether or not HubPages provides that service to members. There's more than one way to figure this out. There's never just one way, especially with the Internet.

        But thank you for your input.

      Nope I get tweets as well. But not as many as you and twitter does only show the last tweet sad

    I would think it is the fault of whatever service or code they use for this.

    I wish they'd use something like http://www.addthis.com/.  I use that at my main site - I don't know that it's the "best" but what I like about it is that I can control what things show up to be clicked on, but more importantly I can go to their site and see both overall and detail views for every service or detail for specific pages for specific time periods and for all time. 

    So, I can see how many tweets were made and drill in to see the specific pages in the  past two weeks, or I can go back and look at a page and see how many tweets, facebook, google likes, prints etc. were made, again for any period.

    With that, you'd get to the bottom of this pretty quickly, but HP doesn't offer us anything at all.

    If it's twitter, blame it on their ruby coders. It looks like a glitch in the system.
