Why would I get a negative number on the traffic sources from the hubpages domain?
Good question. I'm new to the whole hubpage thing. I've just been on about 2 months and I'm still curious why certain articles rise throughout the day or lower during the days when there has been no traffic to rate the articles.
How do they calculate the figures?
I've also noticed that some articles are being ranked each time I'm still writing something that has not yet been published.
I'm not sure about the negative numbers.
I can say that the numbers are a rolling figure, which is why you will see the numbers go up and down through the day. These visitors may not rate your Hubs.
It's a transient error in HubPages. People report it on-and-off but admin has yet to find and fix it.
For my understanding it means that people from hubpages read less your hubs. In fact i am clear about it.Hehe
I'm pretty sure that a few ghosts must've surfed to your hub. Happens to me quite a bit...

I have never seen this before! Analytics shows that I have traffic, but HP's traffic sources is showing all zeros. Anybody else having this issue?

For some Hubs, the traffic sources will show negative values.Others have 24 hour, 7 day and 30 day totals that don't match (30 day lower that 7 day for example).This is a known issue and we are working on a long-term solution to address it.Thank you for your continued patience.
