How can I reconcile conflicting statistics?
My URL shortener says that in a two week period I had hundreds of clicks on various URLs, including 1502 to one Hub. I don't get that much traffic to all of my Hubs in a whole month. Can anyone make sense of this discrepancy--or for that matter times when Analytics tells me something has 100% bounce rate and 30 seconds or more average time for the same URL?
I have never had conflicting stats like that on Hubpages. Then again, I have never promoted my Hubs using the url shortner. Perhaps try just using the normal url and promote that and see if you still get the discrepancy?
Actually, Lauryallan, I'm not referring to the HubPages shortener. I schedule tweets about my writings all over the place using Gremln and use their shortener. They provide statistics for every click on URLs using their shortener. I make reference in my question to the one Hub in that particular batch.
The discrepancy is between Gremln's statistics on clicks and the traffic statistics on both Hub Pages and Google Analytics.
How can I have 1502 clicks on one URL on Twitter in two weeks and not have that much traffic from Twitter to that Hub showing up in my statistics? I don't have that much traffic from all sources to all my hubs in such a short time.
Thanks the the opportunity to clarfy.

My traffic stats are not updating. Last I looked it said traffic statistics last updated 21 hours ago. I found some old forums that did answer bits and pieces of questions that I had but not all of them. Is anyone else having this problem? I'm hoping that I'm not losing money because of a bug (is...

I noticed that one of my hubs got the coveted double red arrows today. And with good reason- it shows more than 650 visitors! However, when I check on adsense, I only have 46 pageviews. I haven't had an increase in clicks for that huge traffic boost, either.This has me a little concerned about...

I have a topic that I researched in Google keyword tool.There were thre columns- Competition,Global Search and Local Search. WhatI realize from reading other hubbers is that traffic and clicks depend on 'evergreen' topics,knowledge, interest,luck,precise keywords for search engines,satisfying needs...

I got into an interesting discussion on another thread, and thought it would make a good thread itself. The question of the day is how do you feel about other hubbers clicking on an ad in your hubs?Personally I really don't see a problem with it as long as the ad interests them from a good quality...
