I had lovely comments on one of my poems and lots of views. Yesterday, It went down quite drastically for no apparent reason and went up this morning. I am a little concerned about the fluctuation.
My traffic varies each and every day. Overall I see no cause for alarm with what you have described. Our overall gain is to gain Google readership and once that is gained, the views remain pretty even over a longer period of time.
Most of the spikes in traffic from HubPage members is just a one or two day thing, and will disappear. When you first publish a hub, it appears in the category as recently published....that will create a spike in HP views. At times, it will move to "hot" if the views are high enough. This can happen if someone outside of HP links to your article and you get higher views from another site. This has happened to me.
Also, should it become a "featured" hub on the category listing, it will get more HP views, but then again, they will drift away.
Google is where you want to see the majority of your views coming from.
Thanks Dale! That's where the SEO comes in, I suppose. Still learning the mechanics. Thanks all, for the advice!!
Again, I'm getting lovely comments and views, but the stats swing downwards. Now this is really a bit odd.
Do you mean day or total? Daily views work on a rolling 24 hours.
And new hubs get seen in the hopper and listed in new hubs but get pushed down as new content is published. So you either need to aim for Google views or find another source.

What is wrong...

I'm guessing it's because school started this week, but today my page views have taken a drastic drop. They have been cut by more than half...is this happening to anybody else?

I have some confusing information being reported on one of my hubs and I am not sure how to interpret it. Any ideas?The Hub “ Christmas Villages, Department 56 Collecting” ranks at a 72 hub score, with 96 total page views since published 12/21/09. Which isn’t to bad, since it was published...

I have not really even followed what is going on here time to time and been writing very erratically. Now it seems that all the different revenues coming in might be worth a shot. Anyway I'm just curious about everybody, not just top writers, how many hits you got so far and do you have one hub...
