    I arrived home late this night, and went to my account and noticed something very odd to say the least, one hub I published has 4,294,967,295 VIEWS!!!  IS THERE SOME KIND OF MISTAKE GOING ON HERE????  I NEVER noticed this before until this night, what does it mean???
    Is that even possible?  Is someone messing with me?

      4.3 billion views?  Which ad program are you on?  Have I ever told you how much I have enjoyed your Hubs btw? My computer is in need of replacement and I am barely getting around in my old broken down truck and I havent been able to take a vacation in years,  but I do find the time to read your Hubs.

      OK, now sweet Faith...that same "half of the world", the EXACT same number has visited SIX of my older hubs...I am agog and highly suspicious.  I am simply not this fashionable?!  I am hoping there is an explanation in the cosmos...

        LOL, Maria, our ship has come in, but I am not even signed up to earn money here.  Oops!  LOL  Crazy computer glitch no doubt!  LOL  Wonder how they are going to fix this?  Yes, surely there is an explanation.  I believe someone said HP was down earlier this day.  Well, you then have covered about the entire world!  LOL

      I had a glitch like that once too.  My girlfriend kept kissing me over and over.  But once the sun came up she stopped. It turns out she was dreaming and thought I was Brad Pitt.

    And, miracle of miracles, I had all those views on an unpublished hub! However, the miracle ended at my income - it didn't change.  smile

    Maybe the barrier between us and dark energy has evaporated, and all those spirits in the dark energy have hacked into the internet. But only in HP. What the hey! ANY page view is better than NO page view!  Imagine how many more we'll get if there is no reincarnation and we get potential page views from everyone who's died so far. It could be limitless...  hmm

    *sigh*

    I think it's time to go to bed.

    Dear Faith Reaper,
    When I went to my Stats on Monday evening, EST, the total views in 30 days were 25.7 million+ , and it was from the sum of 4.2million+ posted for 6 specific hubs, in which 2 were labeled "idle", so that told me it was a glitch in the system, and the next morning, I saw that my total had dropped down to 17.5million+ in which 2 out of the 6 hubs with the 4.2million views was eliminated. So if it was a true glitch in the system, then they must have been working on it. In the end, quite a few of us will have a laugh. I think we should all be rewarded some earnings for the inconvenience. I decided not to start any new hubs until the problem with that goes away. I really don't want any false reports on my new hubs. The statistics page makes me smile every day, and I am glad that people around the globe and not just my followers are reading my hubs. Generally, it is what makes me feel good on a daily basis.

    1. Faith Reaper profile image86
      Faith Reaperposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      Yes, a big laugh indeed!  LOL  Wonder how it happened?  No, don't want any false views on there for sure!  That is so strange.  Wonder if that has ever happened that big of a glitch before?

      Faith Reaperposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      Yes, hahaha, however, the joke would be on me, as I am not signed up to write for money yet.  LOL  Now, that would be a sad day if it were not a big glitch.  boo hoo   It appears it appeared to be on several hubbers' statistics page on some of the older hubs, some even had up to six hubs with that 4.3 billion views on them!

      Thanks dearest Gypsy, and all, especially you too, deserve this, but it is pretty much IMPOSSIBLE for that many views!  LOL  4.3 billion was a HUGE glitch no doubt!!!! LOL  You are too kind Gypsy. 

      Yes, many here had the same exact number show up on their views as well.  It has been removed now, but still wonder how it showed up?
