    Stats have been jacked for awhile.  It was showing my page views jumped by 500% but checked Google analytics and see that's not even close as my traffic has been in the dumps for a week.

    I saw a negative number last week also...getting to where I'm barely paying attention to HubPages stats.

    My traffic has been schizophrenic for about a week.
    Way up, then a plunge, then way up.
    Today though has been the worst according to Hub Stats.
    But...according to Google, things are right about on track.

    Yup.  I'm showing a -10 from one source.  I started a thread about this too, and myself and those who have posted have determined that it is being caused by a vortex.

    wink

      Hey.. on a different note... How do you do the big mouth, laughing smiley?  I know a lot of them, but can't do that one.  (Can you tell I'm fairly new to forums? - Now I need a little bashful, embarassed smiley too.) smile

        when you make a reply on the forums there is a link at the bottom of the box titles "formatting tips"  just look through there and you will see all that you can do on the forum posts.

          WooHoo! Thanks very much! I'm going to have to start my own experimental thread where I just play with the smilies and such to see if I'm doing them right.  Sorry for interrupting this one.

    This already happened before, if my memory serves me right about just few weeks ago, maybe the culprit with the plummeting traffic we have is technical glitch... big_smile
