    What is 7 days under pageviews in statistics?

    I hope pageviews for one day consist of views during last 24 hours and that under the column 7 days consist of views during last seven days as seen at any point of time. So, if I am viewing the views now at 10 am on 24/06/2015, seven days to me is from 10 am dated 17/06/2015 to 10 am dated 24/06/2015. So, the views should include all views during this period. Am I wrong?
    But, I am not seeing those total views of 7 days in my 7 days column. At present it shows only 11 views for my marriage ceremony hub under 7 days column. I am confident it should have been more than 30 views during this period

    Hello Venkatachari :-) Not sure of your particular hub. Was there a change in Ever Views?

    This may be incorrect, however it works for me now for several years. HP updates at regular intervals (supposedly). Having done performance assessments and inventory analysis as a job I usually set my interval at a particular time of the day, day of week, and day of month.

    For instance at 8AM & 8PM each day for 24hrs. For 7-day view it may be at 8AM everyday. However, remember the 7-day view most likely includes your 24hr view relative to the time the 7-day view is done. The same thing with the 30-day view. It may be done at 8AM everyday and it will include the views in the 7-day view. Ever Views at 8AM will be all views.

    What I do is I always check my views at the same time everyday. The statistics views at the upper left will share what the time is relative to the data. That is cool, but if I always check at the same time each day and even twice each day at the same time (8AM & 8PM) I am establishing the criteria for the view performance. I can compare 8AM today with 8AM yesterday. Hopefully HP is consistent and I am consistent, therefore the compare/contrast is consistent.

    What we do not know is when HP rolls the 24hr views into the 7-day view, the 7-day view into the 30-day view, and the 30-day view into the ever view. That is why I set the criteria for when to check and am consistent with that time. Then it does not matter when they roll it, because my data is relative to the time I check from day to day. Of, course the key is HP being consistent, however since I established the control factor their inconsistencies are less of a factor, IMHO.

      But this is not my problem. When I add views for seven days continuously, it should match with the figure of the 7 day views as shown in the statistics. But it does not match.  I think their 7 days is not exactly 7 days. It might be 2 or 3 days only.

    There are times of the day when comments will show higher values because they are recorded in real time, while the views are not, but are updated periodically over the course of a day.

    I checked your account and it shows the following for that Hub.
    1 day: 7
    7 day: 18
    30 day: 120
    Ever: 121

    And it has 30 comments.

    This post has a bit more info about how the stats system works.

    You can contact us via email to team@hubpages.com if you have any further questions.
