Have you ever noticed that folks will always make excuses for when their page views are down? Excuses are abundant and mostly blamed on the calendar.
Here are a few that I have seen over and over in various threads:
Views are down,
because it is summer.
because school just let out.
school has just started.
summer school is in session.
it is a holiday weekend.
it is a weekend,
it is an extended weekend.
because it is the holiday season.
because it is winter.
The list goes on and on!
When views spike upwards the list totally changes and usually never includes calendar events:
Views are up,
because Google or Panda did something,
because I tweaked my material,
HP staff performed a miracle,
because I have 32,000 backlinks.
it involves the position of Mars in relation to Pluto on the eighth day of the sixth week of the 14th month.
Personally I feel it is what one person/being, somewhere, picks in some sort of gambling game that gives us views on a particular day or takes away views on another day. Sort of like a casino game played by some "huge" being somewhere, lol.

Well, I'm going to blame my low views today on the Full Buck Moon. The bucks are busy growing new antlers.
Lol....well the full moon tomorrow is referred to as the Thunder Moon....so I will blame the Thunder moon.
I am going to blame my low views on actor Joe Pesci. Just because.
Summer and weekends do depress net-wide traffic. You have to look across whole weeks and compare back to the same time in previous years -- or look for obviously atypical trends in direction or magnitude
I have some hubs that do better in the summer...... I have never noticed the "seasonal" rises and falls in my stats to really matter. Of course I have only been through approximately 7 seasons here on HP.
Well, summer is definitely a reason for views being down. It was the same last year. And I think that many of us do acknowledge views go up. Tweaking hubs, for example. I know mine go up during certain holidays for my holiday hubs. So there are often reasons (not necessarily excuses) when views go up and down. Just sayin' . . . .
You are all fools. Cognisant reality precludes all parameters.

Has anyone else noticed that the stats/views seem to be frozen here for the last 20+ hours or so?My views seem to be frozen since yesterday, when I have received a ton of comments on a particular hubs, and the views are so low, that it is as if no one has viewed the hubs, but that is not the case,...

I am very surprised to see that my page views have dropped so drastically today. I see no reason for it and am wondering if something has happened site wise or if this is just my own problem. Any thoughts?

I’ve been reading many questions on the forums about how to get more traffic to your hubs. I’m a great believer in testing something, analysing the results, refining and sharing, and I approached the subject of how to get hub views in a practical methodical way. I’ll share my techniques below...
