What does it mean that -1 people looked from aol.com looked at my site in the past seven days? I am mystified!
One person was going to look-- and changed their mind.
Actually, I (obviously) don't know either. Maybe the "-" is a space, instead of a minus?
Maybe one negative person looked at your site? Those negative people, you just can't count on them!
Seriously, that's so weird. I don't know either. Just couldn't resist smarting off!
This is clearly a glitch in the Matrix. Inform Morpheus immediately.
Could it possibly be showing that you have one person less looking at your hub from aol than yesterday? Some stats are set up like that, where they will show you if you have more or less visitors from the previous day, week, or month. In that case, you can have a negative number.
I had the same thing show up on one of my stats two days ago and wondered about it too. Figured as long as it was only one I wasn't going to worry too much.
Every once in a while the running total gets corrupted, and we have to re-calculate the day, week, and month numbers from scratch, which can take a little time. Normally, when we update the stats we just add the total from the latest hour, and drop off the total from the hour that is moving out of the window. Anyway, everything should be back to normal sometime tomorrow.

The Google traffic to my Hubs not only tanked but are in the minus numbers now. I don't have a clue why or what to do about it. I've always had decent traffic riding the ups and downs but hanging on. Now I'm drowning. I'm very discouraged. Can anyone help?

In the last 24 hours, I have seen multiple negative numbers under the traffic sources, from outside sources... What is going on?

For the past couple of days, when I look at traffic sources, I'm seeing -2 from Hubpages, Pinterest and Stumbleupon. -1 from several other sources. Is this happening to others, and does anyone know what it means?

I have question... Can your profile score (or whatever the number on your picture is called) go into negative numbers? Mine was at 50 yesterday, and I've slowly watched it decline, and it's 2 and falling.I comment, and politely on other people's hubs. I write hub's and (for the most part) get them...

What do negative numbers mean in the traffic stats?

Traffic Sources show NEGATIVE numbers...I was checking my traffic sources and one of mine shows "-1". What does this mean??
