Hi - just noticed on my hub statistics page to the right of 1 hub name I have 2 little red triangles and next to another 1 triangle - I cant click the triangles - I cant see anything unusual in the stats for those hubs- what does it mean? Is it good?
I see them too. I have several. Blue and red ones. I'm thinking possibly marking their movement up or down. Just a guess. But even still they keep changing. went from 6 reds to 2.
They are supposed to show hubs where traffic is trending up or down, based on the average daily views extrapolated from the daily, weekly, and monthly totals. The calculations may still need a little refining, but that is the idea.
For low traffic hubs, one or two views may be enough to change the trend.
Thanks you might want to put this one in the FAQ - I thought they were flagged for being bad or something!
Thanks, Paul! I thought I wrote something dirty by accident! Whew!
I am so glad you guys get up before me
I was on my way in to ask.
Its better when I am in NZ then I am another 5 hours ahead of what I am now!
so...what do TWO red triangles mean? Dear God, I hope it doesn't mean that I am pregnant.
I love it you can see at a glance of your stats which hubs are performing better and which are dropping like a stone, it looks like the music charts well done hubteam another great addition to the site.....jimmy
Marye Audet- LOL!
I, for one, love this new feature. Thanks again, guys. (and gals)
I thought we where on a HubPages Homeland Security Alert! Its 2 red Triangles Don't let anyone but you handle your Hubs!
the triangles dont indicate correctly.
i have two red triangles for a hub which is having a drastic fall in popularity.
from 700+ page views a day to just 200.
THANK YOU, guys! I wondered what in the world those triangles meant... kind of freaked me out at first. I thought of the stock market scroller on CNN, though. The thing that confused me is that RED triangles signal growth while BLUE ones signal drop in traffic.... Red generally (to me, atleast) is a negative indicator while blue or green is positive. Not nitpicking the color selection, just explaining how it confused me at first
Hi, I just started hubs a couple of weeks ago and found a red triange on one of my hubs today. I just want to thank you guys for posting about it. I felt really worried too, like it was flagged for deletion or something. I feel better now, and realize its a good thing - thanks again
Thanks, Paul for explaining the triangles. I just checked my account list and noticed them on some of my hubs. Like others here, I got concerned as to what they meant.
I try to periodically update my existing hubs and these triangles will help in indicating which ones need it the most.
Thanks again and keep up the good work.
me too i just got two & thought i got pinged for something...

I thought I understood the little blue and red triangles. But not so sure.Of my 36 hubs I currently have four with the nasty blue triangles alerting me that traffic is falling. Three of these show some activity today. But the other 32 hubs have no triangles at all. So what's that...

are we going to see any feedback? I recall something about HubPages reporting stats provided we tagged our hubs, which I duly did.And for those of us who sweated to achieve the magic 30 or even 100 in 30 days, apart from a bit of forum dialogue we've seen nothing... HubPages itself...

It is my first time to have seen lots of red upward triangles to indicate good traffic on my hubs. Thank you Hubpages and Google.

Can we have a little icon on the statistics page that shows the hubs that are on network sites?I know the Hubpages team is always working hard to improve the Hubpages experience. I was just looking at my statistics page and then at the little icons and thought, it would be cool if we could see...

Since I finished the apprenticeship, and after umpteen updates and changes made on HP, my traffic has never picked up. I can't remember the last time I saw any more than 40 views a day. My average at the moment is more like 30. The articles I worked long and hard to produce, sit there doing nothing...
