    I am noticing traffic on my hubs that wasn't occurring on Squidoo.  The reporting here is better in my opinion.  Anyway, I want to know about the little red triangles.

    It says the red triangle is for improved traffic.  So, when a page has one.....or two what is the difference?  I have a few with 2 triangles and others with 1.

      It's calculated on percentages so hubs with very little traffic get many more up and down arrows than hubs that get lots.

      E.g a hub that usually gets 5 hits per day suddenly gets 10 and that's a 100% increase - you'll get one red arrow. If that same hub gets 15 hits then that's a 200% increase and it'll show 2 red arrows.

        Thank you.  Also I notice you guys call them arrows not triangles.  Oh well, at least now I know why some have 2 instead of 1 wink

    One triangle means your traffic is increasing. Two triangles means it's increasing by quite a bit.

    The first time I saw the red arrows, I figured it was some violation.  Was happy to see it wasn't.  The next day, though, went in and had a lot of those double red arrows.  Still gave me a little start.  You'll notice tomorrow and the next day, you'll have quite a few more.

    Did they just add that to the legend?  I looked for it there earlier and didn't see it.

    I was wondering that myself...however I was wondering about my blue one.  Egh.

      Blue triangles are there to make you feel blue.  Traffic is headed in the wrong direction.
