I agree. My Google Analytics is way down, but HubPages is showing me 12 hubs with double red arrows. When you go look at the source they show Google searches. They definately don't match up, and in fact seem almost extreme opposites. It's almost like they're both incorrect and the true number is somewhere in the middle.
Mine have gone right down in the last few days as well. Thought it might have been because it was the weekend and traffic is low. Last weekend after working on my backlinks I got my traffic doubled, and now it's showing that its almost back down to what it was. I hope it's just an error. Still earning, which is the main thing.
I emailed HP staff Friday night asking them to please post a sticky note in the forums so that everyone could quit speculating what happened. I can only assume no one has read it yet. Even though it's the weekend they are very good at checking in on things. I'm sure we'll hear something from them soon.
I am rapidly losing enthusiasm for further investment of time and energy in HubPages. Their algorhithms for rating hubs don't make sense and their stats are unreliable. I'm sad about this. It was a great idea and the community is great, but c'mon! They insist on their stats when it's to their advantage but hubbers in return get mostly garbage, which is subject to unpredictable "corrections" (which is never explained, let alone justified). Has anyone noticed that the stats are always altered downward and hardly ever correspond to or jive with Google's?
This is like a bad graphic novel. This rat is thinking (?!) about leaving the maze. All those cute admin faces that pop out now and then with "explanations" when things get too hot...are just that cute faces.
Well, jumping to theories or assumptions without the facts, is not going to help the situation and only likely to cause yourself grief. I'm sure HubPages staff is working diligently to solve the problems.
There new features involved and there could be additional problems related to those, who knows? But, until all the facts are laid out, please don't start claiming you know what's going on, because you can't make sense out of any of it.
bookflame, not sure why you're unhappy about stats, they're just stats. you've only been here two months and that really isn't a very fair time period to determine how well you can do here. many experienced hubbers say it can take up to a year to really see progress. your hubber score is 90, that's very good for two months, if you're looking at scores. give it some time.
Hopefully someone from Hubpages HQ can look into this.I believe that those of us that are using a hosted account with Adsense are not getting any ad revenue on impressions from the niche sites.I base this on the fact...

I've been tracking my HubPages stats as compared to my Google Adsense reports, and there's definitely a discrepancy. For instance if my 24 hour total is 20 page views, Adsense says I have only 3. I've tracked the...
