Should we just give up on Hub stats?
It's been days since they've updated, and they're always glitchy. Should google analytics be the only focus then?
Once the hub stats are updated, the may have some good value, so I don't know about giving up on them entirely, they may give you some insight that is not as easily visible on Google analytics. However, I think that Google analytic is definitely the best bet for the long term and getting really good insights from your hubs. Hopefully they update it soon.
Best of Luck,
Thank you, I wish they were more consistent and reflected what analytics showed precisely. I think the earnings update is probably what annoys people the most because it serves as a motivating tool to keep writing here.
I completely understand you, I haven't gotten to that point yet, but I believe it is also possible to connect your analytics with ad-sense so then you have a more up to date view of how many clicks your getting and in turn, how many money per click.

Stats have updated three times today. The one day, seven day and 30 day totals have changed but the 'Page Views Ever' have remained the same with each update. The last time this happened (in October) I lost 15,000 views in the 'Page Views Ever' total. What's happening now with...

The stats have frozen again, and have not been updated for 12 hours (heading for the weekend). Earlier in the week they were stuck for 3 days. That means that the stats are only OK, twice a week - very disappointing! It has been getting worse lately. Please fix this HP staff. Thanks.

For the past two days, I've noticed that my hub score have deceased or increased, but the views have stayed the same as yesterday. Does anyone know what's going on with HP? Will they be updated or remain frozen? Even my new hubs have no views at all. :-(

As per subject title. This is insane. Sometimes I don't even know why I bother on HubPages anymore. Nothing I do seems to work for more than a week. Not the easiest time at a personal level either. Still, I have a goal to meet, in terms of hubs. After that, however, who knows?

I know there have been a lot of changes and I really appreciate that. I also am looking forward to the new hub layout...but...with disappointment.In any business, one must first make their assessment about what works and what doesn't. The things that don't work, you either fix them or get rid of...

It happens every week and when we post it in the forums we get attitude from some staff members. Why does this keep happening? I really don't understand it. If the program which controls the stats is broken then get it fixed.
