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.
