Real-time information

    Ghaelachposted 3 years ago

    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.

        I have no faith in HubPages Stats anymore - I have even resorted to keeping a copy of their stats in word just so I can watch my figures going backwards.

        However -  Real time stats in Google Stats are amazing - you can even see when your followers are online commenting - now that really is good

          We two are not alone Sally. There are a lot of hubbers thinking the same.
          Where do I go for Google stats?

              So, I wonder where we got to get US stats at Google. Anybody know?

                Go to your Accounts page > Earnings > scan down to Google Analytics Reports, and click on that. When you are on the home page, at the top you will see Reporting, click on that.

                  Thanks Examiner. It must be getting late in the day. Why did I not think of that. Had a look, but it's not a very pretty site. Thanks again Ghaelach.

      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.

        It just seems a shame and adds another black mark for HP.

          The staff themselves has told us about checking there.

        I wonder why it is then that the figures never seem to match up!

      There is a notice on the Stats page telling us about it.

        Hi Examiner.  I don't see any info on my stats page about being broken or down.

          The notice seems to be gone now, but nothing is fixed yet so it should still be there.

    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.

        Well you views just went up one and I will definitely be back for more reading of your Hubs.  I am still laughing in the waiting room.

    I think HP stats are in a different area and they update

      Ghaelachposted 3 years agoin reply to this

      HP do update. But the question is how long must we wait? At this moment I am two days behind with stats updates and in those two days have only 4 views. Seems very strange to me.

    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.

    This is nuts.  Earnings have been updated, but stats show i have the same amount of views that I have had for the past few days.

    They just changed data centers that always brings  a litany of trouble. I have been checking Google analytics and I will see if this ever comes online how well they match up with each other.

    I just have not been able to find the view which users looked at what hubs only in real time it shows the details.
