Why do my page view numbers sometimes go down? Can someone 'unsee' a page?
Just curious to know how my page total can actually drop. One of my hubs had 57 views for quite a few hours, and then dropped to 56. Note: 24 hours had not passed from time of submission to time of page count decline.
The numbers are totaled every couple of hours, not every 24 hours.
I understand that. But the stats list it in terms of 24 hours, 7 days, etc. I used that as reference to show that the day didn't 'flip' to the next day. However, it doesn't explain why the number went down; why the actual total went from 57 to 56.
The 24 hour, 7 day and 30 day stats counters are on a rolling time period. They don't reset at the end of the day, they are the views you have gotten in the last 24 hours, 7 days etc. It can be quite confusing until you get used to it. I think pretty much everyone thinks that it is yesterday, last week and last month for a while
Again. That doesn't answer the question at all. If you look back up, 24 hours had NOT passed from the time of hub submission. Therefore, no matter what the process of that is does not matter because that initial threshold had not been met anyway.
I think it's worth noting. I don't know about worrying about it, but I am pretty anal about tracking my metrics and it was an anomaly I saw and was curious as to why it happens.
They are not updated every 24 hours.
If you imagine a timeline with a "sliding window" that is 24 hours wide, you might get the picture.
Every time the views are updated (say every few hours) the window slides forward and counts only the past 24 hours prior to the update. So if you got a lot of views shortly after posting, and fewer after several updates, your views would appear to decline. Look at the total views and compare them.

I have been seeing this for a couple of days. I checked the number of page views at some hour. It was 101. After an hour later, I again checked (probably I am a crazy person looking at hubs every hour), it...

Whenever I check my numbers, my impression numbers are usually way less than my page view numbers. Shouldn't they be the same or even close?

Has anyone noticed that the hubpages views are frozen? Or is it just my page?
