I noticed it's the US stat, instead of the global stat. Don't know if that is intentional or not. Just an fyi.
Does that mean that anyone living outside of the US isn't a person? I moved from the UK to the US, does that make me half a person!?!
Who knows what parameters advertisers force websites to use these days...?
Simey, I'm planning to make the move this year (I'm a Brit and my wife is American).
It'd be great if I could ask you a few more questions, do you have a convenient way for me to contact you?
anyone moving to the US is regarded an "alien" didn't you know that:-)
I'm surprised you're even asking. Of-course only people from the US qualify as real "persons", the rest of us are just a big canvas on which your great and most excellent country paints it's epic story (I think I remember you mentioning that you are occasionally from the uk but have lived in the US for years, I guess you count as an honorary USian).
Sometimes when we're lucky we're good friends and supporters, at other times we're the benefactors of your largesse in bringing us freedom and democracy, sometimes we're unlucky and we're collateral damage. But real persons......obviously not.
I've noticed that the numbers seem different from day to day. It's like they're connected to quantcast and reflect the variations. Which is handy, if you remember what it was recently, you don't need to check quantcast. You can tell how HP is doing on any page.
Being pedantic here, but "discover" is the wrong word. Unless the number represents new visitors to the site, if the number represents unique visitors, then the ones who've been here before are not discovering it. If the number represents views rather than visits than it is even more inflated.
In a recent discussion with my US wife relating to gun control I was kindly reminded of my British heritage when she told me where I could shove my British ideals
It's funny how labels work. I'm British until next week when England play Wales - on that day, despite having lived in Wales for 30 years I'm am English. When the Olympics were around I was proud to be British, when the Ryder cup comes around I'm European - but when someone says something bad about the US I'm proud to be a British American!
So I wonder what I am to be called...let's see half Cuban, half Spanish and raised in the US?????
Uh..I got it I am proud to be a Spameriban................either that or a Mutt.........
The statistic is indeed all traffic, not just US traffic.
The reason that number is there is to provide a proof point for anonymous users. It may surprise many Hubbers to learn that most visitors to your Hubs have never heard of HubPages. By including that number we help access a bit little additional trust with these visitors. People like to do what other people are doing, so showing some visible evidence that a huge number of people have also done what you are doing helps visitors trust that they are not being taken advantage of or doing something stupid. But when we're talking millions of people it doesn't really matter too much how many millions, the difference between 20 million and 40 million doesn't really mean anything to anonymous users. For that purpose the number could be way off and it would still serve it's purpose just fine. So for our purposes, since it's more important that it not be overly inflated because that might come across as purposefully deceptive or dishonest, that number only includes unique visitors and is targeted more to correlate with Google Analytics than Quantcast and generally err on the side of being less than actual traffic to avoid appearing maliciously deceptive. Accuracy is not the goal. Hope that clears things up a bit. Let me know if you have questions.
Analytics says at least 36 million unique, global visitors? Then HP seriously needs to smack Quantcast around with a major stick.

My earnings are currently running at about 50% of what they were at this time last year. Right now, it feels like every time the site seems to have bottomed out, things then sink even lower.Admittedly, the first five months 0f 2021 were particularly good for me, by historical standards, so it's...

I took my 30-days page views count; divided it by 30 and further divided it by the number of published hubs. Thus I got a fair representation of my average number of visitors per day per hub. It comes to a whopping 1.6! How about yours?

I know traffic is a problem everywhere it seems; I'm not talking about low traffic, here. There is a real problem if you use the photo capsule for anything and even the intro photo. I'm NOT referring to the images inside the Amazon capsules.Because quality traffic/reader satisfaction relies on...

Patty Inglish is helping moderate the group so you know it's legit! Let me know if you can't find the community and I'll help you out. The world of online journalism is changing and, in my opinion, Google+ is a very necessary next step! I'm sure many hubbers have already taken the plunge, but if...
