Is anyone else obsessed with watching your page views rise after publishing a hub?
When I first publish a hub I obsessively watch to see the numbers rise! Am I narcissistic, or is this a habit shared by many of my fellow hubbers?
No, I'm not obsessed at looking at the stats. I'm too obsessed with pumping out content instead. The stats will follow.
Yes i have also, but it's like waiting for a pot of water to boil . It will never boil if we stand there and watch and wait. I would say walk away and come back the next day, that's what I am doing from now on.
Sometimes - but not always. I check whic urls the hites come from as feedback to see if promoting it is working or not.
No, I don't think about it, but am pleasantly surprised when I so see it has been read.
Lol ! I try not to do that as its like waiting for the jug to boil or the toast pop up !!!, I spend time pinging my blog , going on facebook , stumbleupon to try get viewers ASAP !! Looking through my photo's for hubs !
I take photo's everywhere in case they come in handy for a hub!
At first I was...meaning after I joined hubpages, and then I realized and accepted that page views go up and down, and there's no particular rhyme or reason...or so it seems.
I always want to know the the first day views. But, mine may not rise like yours.
I am totally obsessed by the stats. I spend far more time watching them than writing. After six months of this (slow learner) I think I am starting to understand why I don't get much traffic.
So stats are important. Analyse that traffic, or lack of it.
i've never actually looked at the page views other then at a quick glance. i'm not on here to see who looks at what i wrote but i am very interested in who comments.
I definitely check back every so often to check up on my view count.
I'm obsessed with watching page views, but in my case I'm more interested in the total number of views in all of my hubs taken together. I'm also obsessed with frequently checking my adsense earnings. Now there is another thing to be obsessed with, that's the new HubPages ad program earnings. I'm granted to use the HubPages ad program yesterday, and in the first 24 hours I earned $0.19! Not bad, isn't it?
Yes, and I'm beginning to worry about it. If I leave my computer for even ten minutes, once I return, I feel a tinge of excitement at the opportunity to check my stats. Usually, this is followed by a tinge of disappointment. And repeat.
You're not alone. I've only been on here three weeks but when I put a hub out there I expect to see numbers move within minutes...lol. It's as if I think everyone on HubPages has been waiting for me to hit the publish button so they can read. After a few minutes that idea goes away and I move onto something else. But I will leave the page up and in a corner if I'm at work and sitting in front of the computer.
When you spent a lot of time to write something for the people, then you have to make sure if they are actually reading it or not?
So I check, both, my hub's stats and comments.
Yes, but I also think it is because I am pretty new and trying to figure out what works, what doesn't and how it works.
Yup, me too! I'm always excited to see that people have been reading my hubs, but I'm always disappointed when they don't leave any feedback. I view Hub Pages as a place to practice the art of writing-- so, to me, the feedback is the most important part!
I just published a hub and my eyes are glued to the darn screen again---also i just signed up for the Google analytics---I think this may be a bad move for my obsession----Thanks for commenting everyone! I'm glad I know I'm not alone!
Good question and I had to chuckle. I learned early in the game to do my best and not worry about it or try to figure out what makes our score go up or down. I have known others who were obsessed with this which helped me come to the conclusion not to worry about it.

First, please forgive me if this has been asked a hundred times already. I've tried searching through the forums, but without a better search feature, it's difficult to find out if someone has already asked about the same problem I'm having. The only thing that came close was "KNOWN ISSUE:...

Is anyone else facing problems with the 'ever' page views on statistics page?I am in a habit of noting down the page view stats. When I checked the stats this morning they were less than what I had jotted down yesterday, I assumed I'd made an error. 14 hours later, they stats have dropped further....

Is anyone else experiencing reduced page views?I have noticed reduced page views of my hubs in the last six days or so. The recent panda reviews seem to worry me that Google is working on something new again. Am I the only one or is it a general problem? Was forced to nose around, and the...

There is a huge disparity between my Hub stats and my stats in Google Analytics. Hub stats shows me getting 300+ page views per day. Google shows about 20 per day. This disparity started around one month ago. I've been on Hubpages 5 years and never seen anything like this except for the...

I am experiencing an overall average off 66 percent less page views per day, for seven days versus a week previous and for the past two months. Such a huge drop in page views makes me think that Google has tuned up something again. I do know that I don't have the time and energy to keep...

There are a lot of hubbers that believe that the traffic stats inform the earnings figures. Considering that the traffic stats have not been working well lately it has got people worried that they aren't getting the earnings/impressions that they should be and this is damaging writer trust in HP....
