Do the Red and Blue triangles actually mean anything?
Oh I know what they are supposed to mean but I don't see that they are representative of what is happening with a hub. When I get one or sometimes two red triangles or a blue one I check out the stats but they never show a corresponding jump or drop in visitors. Am I misinterpreting something?
You are understanding their purpose correctly. One red arrow is an increase in traffic and two is a big increase in traffic. I have only seen one blue arrow, not sure if two is possible. It is a rough guide in my experience as not all the hubs that have suddenly jumped either way get an arrow. I don't put any real stock in them, although I like to see a few red arrows makes me feel that all is good in the world (of HubPages).
Because the arrows work on percentages they show up much more often on hubs with very low traffic. So if a hub that normally gets 5 views per day gets 10, that's a 100% increase and a red arrow will show up. If a hub with 500 views per day, gets an extra 100 then there's no arrow because it's "only" a 20% increase.

It is my first time to have seen lots of red upward triangles to indicate good traffic on my hubs. Thank you Hubpages and Google.

I'll bet I have the most blue arrows of any hubber!Of 1,064 hubs, I have 174 blue arrows and just 20 red arrows. C'mon', play along and have some fun! (What? You don't think this is FUN??)

Are the red and blue triangles that show up for traffic rate accurate? If there are blue ones are these pointers towards immediate hub revamp? If red, immediate pinging perhaps to get the hub out there as quickly as...
