For the past couple of days, when I look at traffic sources, I'm seeing -2 from Hubpages, Pinterest and Stumbleupon. -1 from several other sources. Is this happening to others, and does anyone know what it means?
It does go wonky every now and then. I guess a system as big as HP is going to have its hiccups. It should straighten itself out. Mine aren't showing negative numbers right now, but I remember once it was showing 1,000,000 hits from places I'd never heard of. They'll fix it.
I asked this same question and was completely ignored... then I cried myself to sleep and drank tequila all day. Not that the latter had anything to do with the former, but don't think it didn't hurt just the same!
YOUR Question was regarded as being - Two Negative!!
Only a moot point was to be made by replying!
You drank ta kill ya all day and are still alive to talk about it? No thanks!
I have, however, been known to drown my sorrows in Wild Cherry Pepsi and Cheetos. I like the hot ones. Cheetos, not the Pepsi.
Mine are also very 'buggy' and that means that there is at least one Bug in that part of the site.
So thank you for sharing the fact in your Heads Up!
I'm sure now the spiders will be released to roam the empty traffic department and catch the negative bugs that have been negatively affecting our traffic!
Mine are negative at the moment too. My earnings are dropping as well. No idea why

The Google traffic to my Hubs not only tanked but are in the minus numbers now. I don't have a clue why or what to do about it. I've always had decent traffic riding the ups and downs but hanging on. Now I'm drowning....

In the last 24 hours, I have seen multiple negative numbers under the traffic sources, from outside sources... What is going on?

What does it mean that -1 people looked from aol.com looked at my site in the past seven days? I am mystified!
