How do I have 10 slideshow views today for a hub that had no visits today?
It's magic, actually I don't understand how my most recent hub got 56 page views today and didn't budge in all time page views.
They just make it up as they go . . . we are all probably getting thousands of page views a day but since greed runs the world they just tell us it is only a couple a day.
Hey, how would we ever know?
Every week I get an update from HubPages that gives me data on how many people have viewed my Hubs. It is always many thousands higher than I see when I look on my Stats page. Go figure.
You would know your page views and a lot more info on your visitors by looking over your Google Analytics report. If you are not using it, you should.
@Somethingblue... daily hub views and total hub views are different... daily views are delayed by about 24 hours and then make their way to weekly and as the weekly views time-out... they transfer to all time views... at least that is my theory...
I do not know the answer for I do have the same problem. The slideshow views are sometimes so much more than the view pages. How can anyone get to the slideshow views without opening the view pages?
Can anyone answer the mystery?
I do not give too much importance on the numbers. They tend to morph on their own for unknow reasons. And I cannot seem to find any straight patterns or logical shifts for them. Strange.
It might be possible when they are signed in but instead of their own profile, the members are on the home page and comment/view on items there itself without going to the actual page. Making it simpler, Suppose you are logged in. Delete everthing else from your browser address bar and type only and you are able to comment on items without going into the item page.
When you publish a hub the pictures that are included become searchable images. I always assumed that slideshow views were the result of someone who was doing an image search, clicked on one of the pics and then viewed the slideshow. In that way the pics could get viewed without the hub getting viewed.
If you are getting a lot of slideshow views and no one is clicking to your related Hubs from the slideshow, then maybe you need to review the caption you use under each image. Writing a meaningful caption on each image that elicits interest, will help bring the people viewing your images to your Hub.
That is weird Tmbridgeland. Mine is always a few thousand less. That is on my stat page though, not the email. My best guess would be people seeing it on Google images perhaps or some other search engine where you could view photos. I often wondered myself, but that would be my guess. I know my tattoo pics will show up on Google images, so I would think that would be a possibility.
It's simple... When people view a slideshow on a hub they visit. After they finish all the pics, there's a vast array of similar hubs that appear and if you click those, you're only seeing the images from those hubs. If the people are really interested in knowing more, they can visit your hub.
Hope this helps
One of the new features of the slide show is that it recommend similar slides shows on similar topics... thus, readers can watch your slide show without actually viewing your hub or reading your writing. Does having a slide show help increase your readership... not always... If you'd like to test this theory... just open a slide show and scroll through it... at the end you should find about six other slide show recommendations...
I use Google Analytics. According to HubPages, I have had 3933 page views since I began in April 2012. GA says that in that same time frame I have had 1424 people visit my site a total of 2224 times. Total page views according to GA is 6634. There is a difference between individual people, number of visits and number of page views. So HP counts page views, which for me is 3933. GA's page view count is 6634, That is comparing apples and apples. Why the difference? It might be that HP discounts views that last only a few seconds while GA counts them but does show that their visit was short.
I believe that Jenn-Anne has given the best answer to your question!
Visitors do not have to come to a Hub via your Hub URL or your Profile!
If you open a slide view up on a hub you will see that it has a 'unique' URL and as such will eventually appear in image 'search' engines and viewers will visit your Hub through the Image URL!... Or not :-)
So you see the numbers do not have to align!
Probably from a google image search. Ironically, that is how I discovered hubpages.

Do total views = Page views + Slideshow views ? or do they only count as one?I have 2208 hits today but also 1222 slideshow views, so do I essentially have 3430 hits? or does it not work that way, are slideshow views infact already counted within the page views but simply to show how they have...

Can anyone explain why my page views have plummeted in the last few days. They have gone from 300 per day to 25 per day. Before December I was steadily increasing page views and was up in the high 300's. Throughout December the views slowly dropped down to the mid 200's then out of the blue 3 days...

Is anyone else seeing a strange spike today? I've been getting less than 10 page views per day lately, but it's over 500 today and still rising. The source is undetectable using Analytics, Webmaster Tools, or HubPages Sources. I'm still getting 0 from Google and less than 20 from HubPages.What's...

How many page views did your best hub have?
by Dale Hyde 9 months ago
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...

Does anyone know the magic formula to increasing page views. Here is what I am looking at for averages over all of my accounts and hubs. Monthly Views: 17 Per HubAd Program Earnings Per Page view: .005 (half a penny)Adsense and Amazon Revenue: Negligible, not calculated. So, this means...
