What does it mean if you get MINUS number of views?


In the last 24 hrs I got 2 views altogether. (What google traffic there was - probably only around 18-20 views a day - disappeared on 29 September.) I decided to check "traffic sources" from my account page, only to find that one view came from hubpages and the only other one shown, from google.co.uk, was -1 view! Now, that is adding insult to injury! I am beginning to think Google really don't like me - is it something I said? :) I have decided to abandon trying to figure Google out - but out of curiosity, how can you have a minus view?

    Ad program stuff hijacked? Sounds scary but what exactly do you mean?

    My views eloped with the last algorithm and I don't expect them back as I have no idea where or why they went. However, that's a different issue, it was just the negative number that was puzzling me:) Thanks for answering.

    That's a nice theory, but I hadn't done any editing or viewed the hub myself.
