    How can views disappear from my traffic log?

    On my traffic gauge page where it shows 1 day 7 day and so on I got 48 views my first day. Now it is day 3 and I'm up to 109. However, the first day has dropped down to 16. How can the number of people who viewed my site the first day disappear?

    It is a rolling 24 hour period so it is the number of views in the last 24 hours rather than the last day.  This confused me too when I started. As long as your total overall views don't go down you are golden.

    The 16 views in your 'day' column means that  your hubs have received 16 views within the last 24 hours. The day column keeps a record of each view only for 24 hours. Those original 48 have long gone from your day column (and been replaced by 16 new views) - but as it's only day 3 now, the original 48 views will still be recorded in your 'week'  'month' and 'ever' columns. Eventually, they'll leave the 'week' and 'month' columns too, but they'll never leave your 'ever' column.
