I am a complete newb to HP and when checking my stats today saw a little blue triangle next to one of my hubs, so I see this means traffic has dropped, but can i get penalised for it? Or will the hub stop being featured?
Im just unsure what it means?
Don't worry about it. You will not be penalized for getting a blue triangle. They come and go as the traffic fluctuates. It's nice to see a whole bunch of red triangles which means traffic is rising. In general take the longer view.
Daily fluctuations in my opinion, should be ignored. Look at the overall trend over a longer period of time. Say a year at least.
It means that hub has slightly less traffic right now than it did a little while ago. Given that traffic varies no matter what you do, it means very little.
Actually, I noticed that when I have multiple blue triangles, my Hubber score tends to go down. For example right now I have 5 Hubs with the Traffic Falling blue triangle and my Hubber score has gone down 3 numbers (so far) today. I don't really know if it's a coincidence but I figured that was why my score was going down.
When I read this I had to go and check. I have 38 blue triangles (my traffic is always up on the weekends and early part of the week, down a lot on Fridays) and my hubber score today is 99.I do not think blue triangles have anything to do with hubber score.
Hmmm, well that is good to know. I guess I am just not being a good enough hubber today!
Thanks for all the replies. I don't worry about the blue triangles anymore and do just ignore them. Not sure if it does correlate to my hubber score, il have to keep an eye on that.

Can someone please explain hub traffic statistics to me?I do not understand the different page views and the different triangles. I keep getting blue triangles next to 2 of my hubs and nothing on the other 2. On the one with a blue triangle it says my views are 92.

Just checked the account and we are having a blue triangle morning. Is it something we said? Why can't the HubPages genius team think of something consoling for these down days? A little note along the lines "cheer up it won't last" might ease the pain.

I thought I understood the little blue and red triangles. But not so sure.Of my 36 hubs I currently have four with the nasty blue triangles alerting me that traffic is falling. Three of these show some activity today. But the other 32 hubs have no triangles at all. So what's that...

Hub stats has not one, but 2 red triangles, what does this mean?Alright I know the blue triangle/arrow means traffic is dropping, and the red ones mean traffic has increased, but what does two red ? mean? Also, what is the time frame used to determine if traffic has increased or decreased?
