I've noticed my page views seem to be very inconsistent, and when I asked about this a few weeks ago I was told it had to do with a sliding window as far as updates go which is fine, I understand that.
But after looking at the view over the past few hours, I don't see how this could be a sliding window.
12:40 AM 991 page views
10:20 AM 866
1:00 PM 830
2:30 PM 820
Now according to my stats, my page views have been steadily declining since Midnight, not going up.
If someone could help me understand better how this works, I would greatly appreciate it.
BTW, if it's a glitch that has been addressed elsewhere, I apologize.
I think you still aren't clear on what a moving window means.
As an example, your day views total at 2:30pm would include all the views from 2pm the previous day to 2pm that day. Similarly the views total at 10:20am would include all the views from 10am the previous day to 10am that day. Your total at 2:30pm can lower than the total at 10:20am if you got less traffic from 10am to 2pm today than you did yesterday (in your case 46 fewer views).
Its page views for the past 24 hours, not for a specific date. Midnight is irrelevant. If you look at your watch now, and then again in an hour, you have added the page views from an hour and lost the page views from another hour.
Whew....okay...I think I get it now.
I was thinking like stat counter where its a set 24 hour period.
What about this issue? I finished my T’giving HubMob hub about 0300 this morning, but saved it unpublished, so I could proof it one more time. At 1300 this afternoon, it was showing unpublished, but 10 views. What’s with that?
Each time you save unpublished, and edit, it counts as a page view. Your own views count.
You guys are so helpful! Thank you for all the great information.

How does my unpublished hub have 2 page views?I'm freaking out! I'm not ready to publish it, I need to edit, and I'm not even 100% sure I want to make it a hub! Who looked at it?

Every time I create a hub and save the draft, I notice there are page views that show up BEFORE I publish it. Sometimes the page views show up before I've saved it as unpublished. Is HP counting all our editing page views?

I am sure this has been addressed here before but I forgot the answer ! I am making a biggish hub and it is unpublished yet I have 14 pageviews - are they me opening it to add new stuff ? It had 3 views immediately after I started it and had only opened it to start!

When your hubs are unpublished why does it still show page views?Are those Hubpages staff reading your hubs or something? I just don't understand how something unpublished can be generating page views.
