      Lol, you made me laugh. I'm not pleased, my traffic has REDUCED by 3 in the last 3 hours.

      Can it reduce? Does it? Anyone else has this problem, or is it just me???

        You are not presented with a traffic statistic for a specific date, only for a 24 hour period.

        This is a US-based web site that gets the majority of it's traffic from the US.  It's now Christmas Eve in the US.  People are not surfing the Internet, and they are going to stay off the Internet in a much reduced capacity through New Years.

    Yes, most of us are seeing a decline in traffic due to Holidays.

    Exactly and there is a big storm currently going across the country and it is a whooper.  Some people will not or still do not have electric, which most computers run on.  We may not have electric in the coming days if we get all the freezing rain they are calling for in this area.

    No, no no! You have all misunderstood!

    Traffic isn't going down from my usual numbers, but it's actually reducing/minusing, eg,

    Today at midday it was foe example 100, after two hours the figure went downwards to 97, then it went downwards further and carried on!

    That is the 1 day figures playing with me! The 7 days and ever figures are ok.

    Do you understand what i mean now?!

      Maybe I am hearing what you are asking, I will try:

      1. Let's say at 3 pm you have 100 views for the day.
      2. Then at 4 pm you have 95 views for the day.
      The 24 hour period is from the 3pm day 1 to 3pm day 2. AND 24 hour period from the 4pm day 1 to 4 pm day 2.
      After each 24 hour period, the numbers "slide" over to the 7 day column. This can cause confusion. But it happens this way. It is not set up for a day view like a work day hours. It is a cycle.
      Hope this helps.

    Don't panic.  The numbers rise and fall.  Don't focus too much on the stats, it'll drive you crazy.  Like they've said above, it's the holiday season.  Also, bear in mind what Ryan has said -- the traffic is based on 24 hours not per hour.

    Michael Willis, thank you for your input, but i am still confused.

    I've always got HP open on my mobile phone to keep an eye on traffic updates, so i could see it reducing slowly. It still is reducing, but the 7 day and ever sections are rising, which is not a problem.

    I think i'll leave it, and not worry.

      Ok, if your "ever" numbers and 7 day numbers keep rising, then you are ok with your views, not losing views. It took me a while to understand after joining HP also.

    Page views ever is what you need to look at - it will continue to go up even if the one day stats go up and down. Happy Holiday to you all.

    Do you mean your Hubscore or Traffic?...

    1. G Miah profile image79
      G Miahposted 13 years agoin reply to this

      It's the traffic. Like i said when i first checked my traffic numbers for eg it was 100, 1-2 hours later it lowered to 97. Basically it went in a downward spiral!

      It's not a problem, i do understand most things on HP and how they work, but this was a shock to me.

    I was wondering about that,

    If it's traffic, don't worry about it, my traffic and sales have nosedived over the last 36 hours.

    If it's your Hubscore, that is affected by all kinds of factors!
