In the last 24 hours, I have seen multiple negative numbers under the traffic sources, from outside sources... What is going on?
On my site as well I wonder what is going on??!!
There seems to be an issue with reporting. My stats have been a little out of whack. I am sure they will fix it on Monday.
Slideshow reports often seem to be going hidden and they come back in awhile!!
The best thing about having little traffic is it can't get worse. I mean, once you're on the ground, you can't fall down.
There's another thread were BristolBoy mentioned his slideviews are all over the place. Same here, and indeed the counter seems totally off. I mean, it wouldn't be hard for me to believe I've had no visits but if I have 17 comments on the hub, then it means something is off with the counter
I have had the same problems with the counter and negative traffic on traffic sources. Google Analytics shows I have had traffic though so it is probably a gliche with the system rather than a gliche with my writing.
The problem I have had it that my page views are staying the same and I know there have been visitors since I am getting comments. I do not know how often the page views update, but they have stayed the same on some hubs all day. Strange, maybe it will be fixed soon.
Mine worked for a little bit but not either haven't had a view in ten hours or the counter isn't working. Google Analytics shows that perhaps I have had some views. Thanks
My recent published hub shows zero views, whereas slide views for the same show better numbers.
I could be having a horrible traffic day, mind you, but my numbers have been the same for hours now. Anyone else STILL experiencing this?
When the numbers get thrown off we have to recalculate them completely from scratch (rather than just for the last hour or two), which takes about 12 hours to run. It's in the process now, if all goes well it should be back to normal early tomorrow morning (pacific time).
Back too the same no traffic reports,but google shows impressions on affiliate settings
I love Pacific time , gets me all in the mood for Hawaiian Pizza
Huh? Sorry to be stupid but what you mean, negative numbers?
Not sure , but think it basically means HP staff have been working overtime to correct( or reset something),namely scores.
I noticed the usual stats thing wasnt up n running its usual speedy way,but I published anyway...and now its fine..
I knew there had to be a perfectly good reason why my score plummeted..hehe..

The Google traffic to my Hubs not only tanked but are in the minus numbers now. I don't have a clue why or what to do about it. I've always had decent traffic riding the ups and downs but hanging on. Now I'm drowning. I'm very discouraged. Can anyone help?

For the past couple of days, when I look at traffic sources, I'm seeing -2 from Hubpages, Pinterest and Stumbleupon. -1 from several other sources. Is this happening to others, and does anyone know what it means?

Traffic Sources show NEGATIVE numbers...I was checking my traffic sources and one of mine shows "-1". What does this mean??

I am still sort of new here and have a question about traffic sources. When I go to my traffic sources I can see hubpage views, google views, etc, but some hubbers actually show up with their hub page ulr. And some are crazy amount of views. For eg. one hubber has viewed 112 times and I only have...

I just checked my traffic sources page and this is what I saw:Anyone else seeing this? It's a bit unnerving lol all the numbers at the top are completely absurd and are negative.
