    Maybe you are visiting them a lot? That's about all I can think of.

      The only similar thing I've experienced was a traffic rising symbol in a hub that has never been published. That most certainly was a glitch smile

    I've never had this happen or seen this personally. But I would have to guess you are visiting them a lot while editing, which is impacting the stats which display for that particular hub. If your not doing this it's more than likely just a glitch and you should disregard it.

      If you have unpublished hubs, it could make sense considering the hubs had time to generate stats during their up-time. But in any case, its a glitch because unpublished hubs can't be visited from external sources. Definitely a glitch .

      I'm not sure what bright orange arrows signify. I have never had them appear either. But I would definitely say its a glitch. The hubs are unpublished, you don't visit them frequently, its most likely a glitch.

    The quirks of Hubpages escape me!

    The only thing I can think of, having read the other answers and your replies thereto, is that the one visit you made to the hub, to unpublish/delete it, may be making the difference.

    You don't give your reasons for deleting the 75 hubs, but if the traffic was low or zero then that 1 visit could represent a significant percentage increase!

    In total, across all of your hubs, you have added 75 visits to your tally.

      My reasons for deleting the hubs is because I need to spend time writing and not "updating " my "flagged" hubs...not due to zero traffic..I quit trying to figure it out and just am watching the orange triangles fluctuate/ increase on my unpublished

    Same with me I have more than 5 hubs in edited mode or say reviewed category but I ofen find them in different scores.Now-a-days they flutuate between 69 to 75.But those are not the answers what you have get yet.Why don't you write a new hub  on this topic?lol.I think it the complete effect of your online, current- publised hubs.

    It's very likely that it's counting the views as you are visiting it. Keep on hubbing  smile
