I thought I understood the little blue and red triangles. But not so sure.
Of my 36 hubs I currently have four with the nasty blue triangles alerting me that traffic is falling. Three of these show some activity today. But the other 32 hubs have no triangles at all. So what's that status. So in the range of feel-good values: red arrows pointing up should make me feel great, blue arrows pointing down should make me feel worried and no arrows at all should make me feel what? Dead? Finished?
The triangles are just the most general trend indicators. Any emotional responses or significance are your own choice.
No arrows just mean that the traffic hasn't changed. If you're consistenly getting 20,000 views a day across all your hubs and there are no triangles, it's a good thing.
I love this question and can sense the humor in it all, after all if your having fun on hubpages then what the heck are you doing here. Ummm, traffic is all arbitrary, and don't worry so much about it all. What I'm concerned with is keeping my fans busy with some juicy accurate, valuable info, as well as all those on the web in seek for high quality content.
So them arrows is just a cool game that hubpages plays on those who get all uptight about their stats, I guess, it doesn't phase me none, because my job is done once I publish a hub, communicate efforts on other peoples hubs, write a question, start up a forum, and follow through with editing all my hubs at the end of the day.
When there are red triangles it just means your traffic is up... it has increased from what it was the previous 24 hours.. Remember that the statistics is a window for the last 24 hours.
So having blue triangles may just mean that you have a drop in traffic..it may mean instead of ten people only 8 have viewed your hubs so far.
It does trouble you when your have a page full of blues, but it is normal to have traffic dipping on a few older hubs.
No triangles just means that there is steady traffic.
Good luck to you!!
This is not anything you need to worry about (unless all hubs are blue) I take it as a reminder of how my traffic is doing, but I don't react to arrows one way or the other. As long as you are writing good content and it's original, you're ok.

It is my first time to have seen lots of red upward triangles to indicate good traffic on my hubs. Thank you Hubpages and Google.

I just noticed a blue arrow next to a hub I published this week. It's in the list of my hubs under my account page. What does it mean? It isn't the hub with the most views, unless it's a hub with the most views in the...

This is very, very, unfortunate, but it seems I have been penalized by a Google Alg or something. I have OVER 100 HUBS that have BLUE ARROWS. My traffic went down earlier this year a bit, but stayed consistent for...
