The arrows show whether traffic on a hub is going up or down.
Just because you have a lot of red arrows doesn't necessarily mean your impressions will go up, however.
I have a mixture, but there seems to be more blue than red. I'm not sure that I understand the value of the indicators.
Red means traffic is going up, blue means it's going down. There's a key at the bottom of your account page.
Those red and blue arrows have nothing to do with impressions, they are just a "rough" indication of traffic.
And if you've had a hub with zero visitors for a while and suddenly you get two or three, that can trigger a red triangle.
If you want to know more about your Hub traffic trends, you can take a look at the Hub metrics, but for the more hardcore traffic data, you need to use Analytics.
