    Wow! Something amazing has happened over night! Nearly all my hubs have red up arrows next to them. Ones that were getting 200 views a day have gone up to 700 views. My normal range of page views in a day for all my hubs is around 800, now the figure is 2,400!

    I'm very happy about this but is it a glitch lol ?

    Anyone else had this happen before?

    I did spend some time recently cross linking my hubs through anchor text links, could this be why?

        I see on your thread you've put it down to the hubchallenge but i haven't done that, in fact i haven't written a hub for a couple of months (though i have done a bit of tweaking). It's weird, but good!

        I wonder if it's a global HP thing?

    Yeah, I noticed this about 10min ago too, all of a sudden I got alot of views, well more than usual anyway over a really short period of time.

    O well, i'm not complaining.

    Sorry to bring you guys down but I think its a glitch. My stats are showing a massive increase in traffic coming through links from my other sites, which haven't had an increase themselves and still have the links in the same places; I don't see how that's possible so Im assuming the stats must be wrong.

      Susana Sposted 14 years agoin reply to this

      Hmmm - poop, lol! All my extra traffic is showing as coming from google....let's wait and see if the HP team has anything to say about possible glitches (I'm going to enjoy this moment for as long as i can, lol)

    Yes - it has happened to me too.  Well over double my normal views.  And there I was all excited........ damn.

  5. waynet profile image68
    waynetposted 14 years ago

    I'm getting traffic all across the board - google, google images, yahoo, aol! anyway lets wait and see, because I know there has been a few things mentioned on other sites which have positively put hubpages in the limelight, so lets wait it out!

    I wasn't getting any up dates all day.  I imagine the server just recorded all of the incoming traffic all at once, adding a day's worth of traffic on top of what you already had for 24 hours.

    Same thing here. Might be related to the recent server problem, I doubt the numbers are real (sadly).

  8. viryabo profile image93

    I just knew something wasn't right. My traffic tripled in just hours. Not possible, so must be a glitch!
    Oh well.....sad

  9. waynet profile image68
    waynetposted 14 years ago

    Yep, just looked in depth into my GA stats, more probably a glitch, oh well back to writing some more hubpages!

    Of course if I was really getting that much traffic my adsense earnings would be up....stupid me, running to conclusions!!

  10. Laura du Toit profile image74
    Laura du Toitposted 14 years ago

    Must be a system glitch. My Google Analytics shows no spike in number of visits and my HP stats also shows double the number of views. Wouldn't it be great if they were true. smile

    Helen Caterposted 14 years ago

    Wow what is going on. I just looked and mine have trippled. never seen so many red arrows, and most are from google.com. hubpages must have done something really right for this to happen. Keep it up, whatever it is.

  12. Wayne Tully profile image65
    Wayne Tullyposted 14 years ago

    With mine it's only affecting certain hubpages ie: the more popular ones that I've backlinked and promoted...just wait and see I guess!

    Awww I saw the same thing this morning in my stats and got all excited, checked out ad sense and 1 page impression, didn't make sense. I guess it is a glitch sad

  14. Helen Cater profile image60
    Helen Caterposted 14 years ago

    Ah well, it was good while it lasted. the sats have not moved much so I guess they have all been added on in one go.

  15. Amanda Severn profile image95
    Amanda Severnposted 14 years ago

    Mine were down yesterday, but they've really jumped today, so I'm assuming a delay in reporting rather than some big, dramatic improvement.

    YAY, it seems all stats went up one go, have been static for like two days already and now, all are ups!!

    I think last days stats which were not added due to server problem , was added now.

  19. waynet profile image68
    waynetposted 14 years ago

    It appears our traffic stats have frozen, so possibly a server side error glitch ....sigh!

    Scratch that! they are still counting views, but 3 times as much traffic....ahhh the traffic possibilities!?? I wish!

    It's definitely an HP error.  I have a 300 percent increase in traffic but my Google Analytics doesn't show the increase.

    Mine more than tripled.  I had 21 with double arrows and I didn't even count the single red arrows.  It was sure nice to see.  I wish I could see that everyday!  But, like everyone else, I checked Google Analytics and Adsense and no such spike. sad

    My stats haven't increased but my profile was gone and my forum posts were stuck under the "YOUR" tab and still are.  My profile however is back but my hubtivity is back, guess they are finally up to the T's in working through things.  Wish I could have seen those huge stats - even if just for a moment.

    Think I will work on writing up some hubs by hand and then getting them typed up and ready to post come Monday. All this is a bit wierd and maybe by then it will have settled.

    pauldeedsposted 14 years ago

    Some extra pageviews were counted for several hours last night as we switched back to the master from the backup database.  It's fairly difficult to roll those back, so you'll just see extra traffic in your stats for that period.  Processing appears to be back on track, so you should see a decline in your day views back to "normal" levels this evening (as the inflated hours start to drop off).

    Uhm, can you hold that 'back to normal level'? Want to enjoy my 1,000 one-day view before the number disappears forever lol

    Hmm-- I was wondering if it was a glitch, too, as my total views have gone up about 400%. Lots of red arrows lots of double red..

    I suppose  that should mean higher earnings. Time will tell.
    OK, now I see Paul's note above.
    The red arrows look festive.

      Nope, it's just inflated traffic stats due to a fixing of glitches.

    Im not getting any response as of yesterday between google adsense and hubpages.  Whatever happened on the system knocked my adsense account out and now it is no longer verified.  This is what it says:
