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.

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.

Hi,Around a week ago, (could be longer, I don't always check), I noticed that my daily page view figures had suddenly plummeted from several hundred to just tens. Of course this could be explained away by an overnight drop in my hub popularity - except for the fact that I'm also getting...
