The negative numbers in our stats is a software glitch with which HubPages has dealt a few times in the past. HP has said, in effect, it's nothing to be concerned about.
Daisy is correct, negative numbers are nothing to worry about, they will fix themselves given time and are not an indication that your numbers are going down.
If you want 100% correct stats for your traffic, set up Google Analytics for your profile which will give you very detailed and accurate stats. Once you have signed up for Google Analytics, click on the Earnings tab on your HubPages profile to set it up. After a few days, the stats will start to feed into Analytics.

There is a huge disparity between my Hub stats and my stats in Google Analytics. Hub stats shows me getting 300+ page views per day. Google shows about 20 per day. This disparity started around one month ago. I've been on Hubpages 5 years and never seen anything like this except for the...
