Since the stats or views on new hubs appear to be frozen, should we hold off on publishing a new hub
Should we hold off on publishing new hubs since the stats seem to be frozen, and with that other issue of views "Ever" are dropping in lieu of rising, until these problems are fixed?
Faith, You aren't the only Hubber asking that question. I have noticed that when the Hub stats counter is broken (which is far too often these days), the number of published Hubs drops noticeably. Not that it should matter, but it is nice to know how your work is doing, and without the counter, people seem less motivated.
Oh where is the Faith that all will be just fine.. publish away it'll fix itself...
I have one I have to post tomorrow. My score is dropping already. Seems odd though everyone's score doesn't drop! lol
Earning money from Hubs is a long term endeavour. HubPages has said it can take up to three years for a Hub to reach its full earnings potential. In view of that, losing a few views in the first few days is completely irrelevant.
Well, I did think about it, but I don't know how long the stats are going to be stuck and I need to get my Hubs out there as soon as possible because it can take so long for them to mature. It's not today's traffic I'm after. It's next week's, next month's and next year's.
I know it's frustrating not being able to see stats but it should not determine whether you publish or not. Hubs still get featured if they pass the quality assessment even when stats are frozen. Remember it's all about long term views.
I can't answer for anyone else, but my Hub production does NOT depend on the stats counter. The stats will get squared away sooner or later, but a day lost Publishing is a day lost Forever.

Since things have kind of been changed up has anyone else felt the sting of low views...and longer updating times? Is this just another lull and things will pick back up or do we need to work harder to get more views in?

How does Hubpages count no views when my Hub yesterday received 7 comments? My Google Analytics says I received 54 views and Hubpages says 32. Is there something wrong here? Please any feed back would be appreciated.

I was checking stats on specific hubs to see where traffic is coming from, and it's strange. Is there a change?It's only showing Hubpages views and Google.com... what happened? Will our original stats return? I hope...

No update on the stats in 32 hours. Yesterday my Hubber Profile score dropped a point and when I signed in this morning it had dropped another point. My hub score has rapidly dropped 2 points. Is there a connection...

This has been something i have wondered about before and it has always puzzzle me. However, yesterday there was an even bigger gap in my stats, my Hubpages stats showed just over 5000 views. However, my...
