I haven't got arrows up or down but I'm too new. But I have got traffic even if it is only from HubPages. That's the nice thing about HubPages, isn't it? If you've got your own blog it's always a long wait until you get traffic because you have to rely on the search engines. That's what I found on my Avon blog. It's a long, lonely wait. The thing is, though, I suppose, is that none of this Hubpages traffic I'm seeing is making any money and let's face it, that's what we're all here for at the end of the day, isn't it?
My page is full of blue arrows so I was surprised to see a red arrow on one of my arthritis hubs. Then I read the number of page views--2! I guess it had been at 0 for so long that 2 was a huge improvement and deserved a red.
I have 5 red arrows, they don't really mean anything. A couple of my red arrow hubs had 2 views in the last 24 hours! Presumably they had no views in the days before that so they are getting better but it's all relative!
Actually my views are getting better. But only because I was sent to naughty corner by Google on Dec. 10th and he instructed all the searchers not to play with me. I think I'm allowed out now, but then HP traffic's dropped, so I am at about 30% of what I had before Dec. 10th.
While it is possible I suppose, it isn't what we're seeing here.
This is obviously a glitch of some kind, not an actual loss of traffic. HP numbers no longer line in the slightest with those from adsense or analytics. They aren't even positive - other threads are reporting many cases of negative views! What - somebody left the hub without ever being there??
Weekends are always slow. This weekend is going to be especially slow. A lot of people won't be online until the shopping malls close up for the night.
I had a lot of blue but I do have some red now. It must be picking up for the evening. Don't fuss over it too much. After Xmas traffic will pick up again. After all, a lot of the retail jobs were only for the holidays. All of those people will be home, unemployed and surfing online. No doubt you can feel better about your traffic now.
Got a handful of reds, and I am happy to announce after days of 10 - 25 views over my 40 or so Hubs, my traffic seems to be returning to near normal. 230 views today, all of which apart from 50 were from Google. Still not up to where I was before, but getting there.
I wish everyone else here good fortune in the return of the reds!
My traffic also seems to have fallen off a cliff although today's traffic's looks slightly better than yesterday's. I currently have 37 blue arrows and four reds (three of which have just two views each!). I'm not worried though and feel confident things will turn around for the better. Wishing everyone happy holidays!
Unusual Saturday for me in that my traffic is increasing a little instead of showing a usual minor decrease. So, 76 red arrows with some doubles, and about the same number in blue - they are rotating up and down and around. lol.
Just saw 2 red arrows for first time in a least 5 days; 3 blue. Big surprise was 1 idled out of 29 hubs. Ho hum. I'm not going to try and revive her just yet, too much else to do that take priority right now. Let's keep our heads to the sky
I have 4 reds, but so many blues I don't want to count them. I've had record traffic this month until the last couple of days. I figure everyone is out Christmas shopping, getting food ready for parties etc.
Currently have 6 red arrows and have had even more in recent days. My views are up today triple yesterday, but I doubt it will last. Lots of ups and downs on the weekends and I'm sure the holidays will be even worse for views.
