I have for this post I just finish to write (http://hubpages.com/hub/Philip-Dru-Admi … FR-Founder ) a stat that was saying 30 visits and all of a sudden in a few minutes it jumped to 70 which I doubt because I have never reached 70 visits from Hubpages just in a few minutes.
Did this already happen to someone ? Isn't it a bug
Also is Google Analytics really reliable ?
For example according to Google someone used "how to make christmas parol" to find:
http://hubpages.com/hub/Astonishing_Int … ockefeller
??? I don't talk about Christmas parol at all
The stats are updated hourly, so it isn't that unusual to see a jump like that. I believe the numbers are accurate.
I think that is showing that someone came from google to HubPages with that search, and then eventually landed on your hub after navigating around the site. They probably came in to this hub originally.

In my experience analytics is very reliable, but because we only place your analytics id on your pages within HubPages some of the more advanced things you can do with analytics won't make sense. In normal use, you'd put the analytics tracking on to every page of the site .
Several days ago the number of traffic from hubpages.com to my hubs was zero for
2 days which didn't sound right to me either. I am sure this is due to some kind bug.
But Bigdog Google is having memory problems like this?- Hard to believe...
Remember that your own visits to your hub (to edit, check stats etc.) are counted. In a way I'd like to exclude my own visits, but then again I'd rather have it showing as 20 visits (from me) than zero, then I can kid myself I'm getting visitors even if I'm not!
It is feasible, but we choose not to do it for a couple of reasons:
1. If we changed it retroactively everyone's stats would go down which would foment silent confusion and a bombardment of questions. If we only changed it for stats going forward it would make for an unfair comparison between old data new data.
2. Hub views are one of the factors in HubScore. Viewing your own hub frequently indicates that you are paying attention to it, which is something that "drive by" spammers rarely do. We're happy to provide a little HubScore lift for people that care enough about their hubs to revisit them.
That's our reasoning any way.

Although I doubt this is an HP bug, I'll post it in the tech problems anyway -Yesterday traffic jumped about 20%. Almost all from one hub:HP stats says that hub got 350 views, up 300 from normal, with 275 of it from Yahoo. That's a weeks worth of traffic from Yahoo for the entire...

It would be really helpful to see what the monetary value of each hub is per day or week or month (preferably per day or month) as an additional column on the main statistics page. For example, a Hub that was published years ago may have many views, but since they were acquired over a long time the...

As per the new changes HubPages has made, I was required to make a few changes to the amount of Amazon products I was showing. I lowered the amount of products to lower than an average of 1 per 50 words on the hubs that HubPages has penalized. Furthermore, on hubs that weren't penalized I got rid...

In light of the recent barrage of "alleged" copyright violations from sites that use my content without my permission, I'm wondering why one particular hubber has visited one of my hubs over 600 times. I'm flattered by the attention, although, I do not see any comments from this person....
