I think that the line graphs that are given for our stats should be improved. There should be a category in "My Account" just for comparing 1 hub graph to another, etc.
Graphs with as many options as http://moneycentral.msn.com/investor/ch … playForm=1 would be great!!
You can get tons of data (more than I would ever need) from google analytics. You can link accounts through adsense. I try not to log into analytics that often because once logged in, it wastes so much time. lol It's so fascinating to view all the data and be able to compare certain days, etc.
The stats here are supposed to be the bare bones, with (as was just pointed out) the real data coming from Google Analytics.
I agree that google analytics is a great program for looking at statistics, but i still believe more can be done at hubpages to improve the stats system.
Simple things would be great, like being able to compare two hubs on one graph. I'm not asking for major renovation, just making a suggestion for an improvement.
Koby, I think what some of us have not expressed more clearly and which you aren't intuiting at all is that HubPages was designed from the get-go to not really have stats here and for you to use Analytics.
I don't bet money on things, but if I did, I'd bet that HubPages would rather you use Analytics to compare two Hubs as opposed to putting their energy into reinventing the statistical wheel (which already exists).
And thats why i'm saying that hubpages should consider having more thorough and informative statistics.
Analytics is great, but since it isn't hubpages.com, it operates in a way that makes it a broad blanket over the internet, instead of concentrating on how hubpages operates.
Analytics perfect for detailed stats on traffic, keyword, and whatever you want. HP runs just like any other website in terms of traffic and keywords.
There's no need to improve the stats here. The ones here give you a general idea, which is what they were intended to do.

I saw where this issue has been addressed in the past and supposedly corrected. But for many weeks now, especially toward the end of the week and weekends, my HubPages stats will not update for hours and sometimes even...

Is Hubpages going to be keeping up with the changes to Analytics?For example:Analytics has a new feature in which you can observe your traffic's interests. Knowing your traffics's interests allows you to cater to them...

This is a serious suggestion.The stats is a sore point for many hubbers. I say if HP can't fix it then remove it. No use having it if we can't get an update at least daily. The page views haven't moved for one week and...

It seems the stats are frozen again, as I have not seen a change in mine in a good long while. Has anyone else noticed this too?

It would be very useful to those of us who work hard to rank well for keywords to be able to see exactly which keywords are working on a daily, weekly, monthly and overall basis.A simple listing of keywords and the...

I've been hearing lots of positive posts from lensmasters whose lenses transferred to HP recently that their hubs are getting a lot more "traffic" than previously as Squidoo lenses.I too have noticed that my...
