My question is one that is and has been asked so often it is becoming boring. Why is it that we in Europe or at least myself have to wait till 14:00 or 2:00pm to get the correct stats and at the moment I am 29 hours behind with my stats. I would have thought that with such a big organization as HP is we could have real-time information. I hate to think how long our hubbers in Aus or New Zealand must wait. The question is "Why must we wait so long to get real-time Statistics"
I don't know what the deal is with the stats, but it is not limited to the UK. I'm in the USA and mine are 29 hours old too, now. However, typically they are not so far behind. It varies for me usually being somewhere between three and eight hours.
I do find the question interesting though. Why not have them in real time? It seems it would actually be easier from a logistical standpoint. Since they are not real time, they have to be loaded, imported, what have you from real time. Why not skip the step and just display that way to start with? It does make a body wonder.
If you want real-time statistics, check Google Analytics. It will give you all the information you need, and then some. I'd hate to see HubPages wasting its resources on duplicating something Google is already doing for us.
I quit paying attention to stats several years ago when my adsense account was pulled due to someone in Europe trying to hack it. I could never get it reinstated, and HP was no help at all, so now I just publish for the fun of it.
Hi Will. I can hear your disappointment. Mine started a few years ago when HP and Google started playing around. I never really had a lot of views but at this moment in time my account tells me I've had the amazing total of 4 views when it was updated 39 hours ago. Still you can't have everything life. Ghaelach
They update when they can. I don't bother much with those stats but always go to Analytics. The hub stats include our own views. but you can exclude your own views in Analytics. I know it must sound crazy to new people.
Thanks Audrey. I realize that Google tend to do things a little different than HP, and while I am almost in my 4th year here on HP, have seen many changes some for the better and some definitely not. I can truthfully say that in those four years there has been a constant cry or moan on the subject of hub scores and stats. The stats need a complete overhauling. Ghaelach
I saw where this issue has been addressed in the past and supposedly corrected. But for many weeks now, especially toward the end of the week and weekends, my HubPages stats will not update for hours and sometimes even...
It would be very useful to those of us who work hard to rank well for keywords to be able to see exactly which keywords are working on a daily, weekly, monthly and overall basis.A simple listing of keywords and the...
The stats have frozen again, and have not been updated for 12 hours (heading for the weekend). Earlier in the week they were stuck for 3 days. That means that the stats are only OK, twice a week - very...
