I posted this yesterday, and spoke to a staff member, but now I've noticed HUGE drops.
Over the past couple hours, I had close to 8,000 total 24 hour views, that has now dropped to just over 6,000.
Seriously, why show 8,000 if it is going to drop to 6,000? Surely each unique visitor is accounted for BEFORE being added to my totals for me to view.
@wjack2010 Fluctuations in traffic are a pretty normal occurrence.
Do you have something to indicate the information you are seeing is not accurate?
Not exactly. But how can it fluctuate? Either someone viewed my Hub, or they didn't, there aren't any fluctuations there.
How does that explain it though?
Say 2 people viewed my Hub on day 1, when the stats update, it should display 2, it cannot then update again a hour later, and remove 1 view, so I'm left with only 1 view, because those 2 people still viewed it, no matter what.
It sounds like you are thinking the 24 hours is total views.
The number from yesterday will not necessarily be the number from today.
Again, the 24 hour period is rolling.
The only number that should stay the same or go up is total views and total views can actually go down as well due to it only showing info for currently published Hubs.
If you had 3 views two days ago, and none since, the Hub will show 0 for last 24 hours.
Hmm, I think I understand it a little more...
So, say I had 1 view exactly 24 hours a go, it then updated an hour later, and during that time, 2 more people had viewed my Hubs, my actual 24 hour total would be 2, instead of 3? Because that 1st view was now more than 24 hours a go.
Confusing system you've got going, I thought it was like a day-to-day, so each day it resets, not each 24 hour for each view.

I noticed for some time now that when I click on my HP account the views on some of my hubs are lower than the last time I saw it and there could only be minutes in between two clicks. Just now I logged in to work on a...

why do my hub search sources only equal roughly 3000 views for all time, when my total ever web views equal 7000?

How much does your hubber (author) score fluctuate from day to day?Mine changes about 2-3 points up or down each day. My best guess is that the fluctuations for me are based on two factors:1) Activity in forums 2)...
