I realized yesterday evening that my stats weren't moving and then came to look for word in the forum. I have seen multiple threads since, but nothing from HP staff. Last time this happened was on the weekend, but someone, I think Paul Deeds, let us know what was up. Anyone heard anything from HP/staff?
I think a lot of us experienced that unusually high traffic stats before the freeze. Do you think that was meant to keep us happy until the fix? LOL Maybe it was an average we were expected to get for the next several days. LOL I'm totally joking here.
I emailed HP staff last night asking them to please post a sticky note in the forums, but I haven't seen anything yet unless I missed it. I'm sure Maddie or someone will check on things soon and let us know something even if it's to say they're looking into it.
Just fyi...there were posts about this early Friday. It's not new. I emailed HP staff over 24 hours ago about it. I'm sure we'll be hearing from them soon on when to expect it to be up and running again.
That's about what I saw too. Strangely, it was my worst hubs showing the most traffic. I don't sweat it much, but this week I've been working real hard to improve my traffic & incoming links so it kinda sucks that I can't see yet if my work had any effect. *sigh* long term is what matters anyway, I'm just a slight bit impatient
Don't stress too much about your stats in the first place. My score was at 89 and then I had some people who didn't like what I had to say in the forums bring my hubs to the attention of admin. Suddenly, I had over 2 dozen hubs flagged and pulled off the air for over a week in some cases. my hubscore may never be what it should be now. before all the shit went down I was at 89. I don't care either since it doesn't truly reflect anything regarding your writing. There are too many other things involved here that truly do not matter. Don't stress. I get paid to write--not advertise--elsewhere so I don't care about anything but having fun here.
I KNOW it's true that so many other things influence your score. There are people in the 90s who cannot spell, make grammatical erros and in some cases do not even actually include a lot of writing in their hubs. I can assure you that the score means very little regarding the talent of your writing . . . especially when they somehow "cut you off" whenever your score goes under 75. Whatever. I used to get paid for writing in something called newspapers so this is just fun for me!
Yeah, this isn't a real job either for me, and I also used to work for something called newspapers. lol
And completely, everything you say about scoring and writing is true... That is also to say something about the uneven moderation... Also, what bookflame is talking about - I don't know if it is possible in anything to achieve exponential growth as far as all earning....regardless of what they produce. Necessarily, some may perhaps need to be lowered a notch. Not talking of anything specific...just the way things work.
Hey RM! In reply to the topic: yeah, I think Hub Pages was having a heck of a time, yesterday. It took me 4 tries to get into Dohn's continuing Revenge story. I thought it might be my computer but then again, the rest of the internet was working just fine for me. So I think people might have been having trouble getting connected, and that's why the views are down.
Really that tee-shirt hub is hilarious! I think it's just a really, really, really POPULAR hub, for good reason!
Thanks Paradise. We'll see. I have another funny tees hub almost ready to publish, but I just brought my dog home from the hospital and he, the Spaniel and I are all miserable right now. I'm trying not to move much or make any noise! Maybe sedation for everyone!
Has anyone else had this issue? My total page views have been showing as 70,444 for 3 days. Daily views only 125. I was quite concerned that nothing was going up until I realised there has been no update. Is there any...
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.
We just released a fairly big update to the site. In addition to a number of bug fixes and under the hood improvements, there are four big changes that you may notice:My Account Design - we separated all the pages...
A feature I would find handy is having all of the Hub Metrics data (word count, revenue potential, incoming links, view duration, date published (already on other stat pg) and short url) found on another stat...
