Since the stats were updated after being static for a few days, my hub views are way down and still dropping. Is this something others are seeing too and if so, do you think it is to do with the recent Google changes regarding how pages look on mobile devices?
It looks like an error because it doesn't match up to what is showing in analytics.
After the data caught up, my views were the usual that I receive, but then dropped very low - but then, Analytics shows my views are above last week, so I think things are OK.
I also am experiencing a large view decrease on HP since views were static. One of my hubs that receives 300+ views daily is showing only 113. Google Analytics says its really received 395.
I do not think it has anything to do with mobile, I am confident this is an HP issue since Google Analytics has confirmed the page view discrepancy.
As it looks like a few others have mentioned here, there's a bug with the stats that our Engineering Team is working on right now. Thanks for your patience.
Here is the forum thread to which Christy referred.
Great post - thank you for sharing. I was wondering what the end result might be this time.
Is there an animal name associated with this mobile mandate update? I used to love Penguins and Pandas until Google gave them new meaning for me!
I'm seeing the same issue on my end...looks like my normal "average" views per day have dropped by half and are still dropping...doesn't seem right to me. Hopefully it's a bug? Otherwise, I'm scared.
I feel better since everyone is experiencing the same thing.
It's a bug. There was a similar bug not long ago where the total went down to 0. Unless I was dreaming about it
Thank goodness it's not just me! EZ Swim Fitness, I don't think there is a name for this Google change?
Look at Google Analytics for accurate results. The HubPages stats are incorrect on the statistics page, as well as the traffic sources page.
Mine is also dropping and dropping. It´s scary to watch. I thought it was only me.
Hmmm my own dropped badly too I actually dreamt it went back up to 77 last night. May this dream come through PLZ Hubpages lol

No update on the stats in 32 hours. Yesterday my Hubber Profile score dropped a point and when I signed in this morning it had dropped another point. My hub score has rapidly dropped 2 points. Is there a connection between the stats not updating and my Hubber score? Seems like a pretty rapid...

Stats have updated three times today. The one day, seven day and 30 day totals have changed but the 'Page Views Ever' have remained the same with each update. The last time this happened (in October) I lost 15,000 views in the 'Page Views Ever' total. What's happening now with...

As per subject title. This is insane. Sometimes I don't even know why I bother on HubPages anymore. Nothing I do seems to work for more than a week. Not the easiest time at a personal level either. Still, I have a goal to meet, in terms of hubs. After that, however, who knows?

Looking at my sources of traffic (Google, Pinterest, etc.), on one of my successful articles I notice the source is "direct". When I look at "referral path", it just says, "not set". Does anyone have any insight into what "direct" is as far as the source of...
