How do we get negative traffic?
I just looked at my Traffic Sources in my account and saw "negative" traffic. It's like saying someone went to my page and then they didn't. How does that happen?
It looks like weird things are showing up on all our accounts. Hacked? I dunno, but I assume it'll get fixed and be back to normal pretty soon.
What is negative traffic? I never know there is such a segment on Hubpages.
There is another hubber asking the similar question. I think it is just the bug. I just checked mine and everything looked fine. I hope yours is back to normal now.

In the last 24 hours, I have seen multiple negative numbers under the traffic sources, from outside sources... What is going on?

For the past 48 hours,, my total views (as shown on my account summary) are decreasing, then increasing, then decreasing again. Yesterday I watched the daily view go from 309 to 263 then back to 300.; How does this affect income and when will the counts be reliable again?

Anyone have any idea how this can happen? I just looked at my traffic sources, and from one of them (its actually a forum) I have -10 for today? How in the world does one get negative traffic? Did 10 people attempt to view my hubs and get sucked into a vortex?I know traffic is...

For some Hubs, the traffic sources will show negative values.Others have 24 hour, 7 day and 30 day totals that don't match (30 day lower that 7 day for example).This is a known issue and we are working on a long-term solution to address it.Thank you for your continued patience.
