To me, it would seem that every article should have a blue or red arrow. I mean, isn't an article's traffic always in constant flux of either increasing or decreasing? Generally, I only see a small amount of arrows across all my hubs. Maybe I'm missunderstanding how they actually work...
They point out sharper trends. Blue means a Hub is cooling off, that is it's seeing a more steady decline in traffic. Red arrows point out when traffic is heating up more than usual.
However, you can't put to much stock in the arrows. If you have a Hub that has not been having any traffic and you go edit it to spiff things up, your own sole visit can trigger a red arrow.
I had no idea what you guys were talking about, blue and red arrows... what arrows!!!! I never paid attention to them until now. Learned something new again.

I just noticed a blue arrow next to a hub I published this week. It's in the list of my hubs under my account page. What does it mean? It isn't the hub with the most views, unless it's a hub with the most views in the shortest amount of time, I do not know.

Can somebody tell me why do I get a Red arrow for two clicks and Blue arrow for seven or more, then there's no arrow for 22 clicks a day. What's up with that?
