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...

Just wanted people to know that we are aware of an issue that is resulting in a subset of account level traffic sources to show as negative here.http://hubpages.com/my/hubs/traffic-sourcesWe are aware of the issue and are working to resolve it.Thank you for your continued patience.

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?

Hi, all!I thought I would ask a fun but useful question. What are your top 3 sources of traffic. What, if anything, do you do to drive traffic through these sources?For me, it's Google Plus, Pinterest and some social media communities.Thanks!

In the last 24 hours, I have seen multiple negative numbers under the traffic sources, from outside sources... What is going on?

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.
