I know! It happens often, but I have been riding a high for over a year now on my Articles. Over the past week though, I see dozens of the dreaded "down arrows".
Can anyone tell me what is going on this time?
According to HP staff this is a reporting stats glitch - which came as a huge relief yesterday, so there's no panic needed! There's a separate forum thread you can dip into if you want more info.
Great, but if it was a glitch, does that mean that there was the normal amount of traffic, but the reported numbers were off? That seems to be the case.
And if that's the case, what happened to earnings for the unreported views? Did the advertisers just get a sweet deal by getting impressions that they didn't have to pay for?
Not a huge deal and I'm not out that much $$, but a "glitch" to me means something messed up that will be corrected. My earnings have not been corrected.
greenmind, As I said yesterday (see my post above), Google Analytics showed a steady flow of traffic throughout this glitch. There was no plunge in views.
To your second concern, Robin made it clear in the other thread on this topic that earnings will be calculated correctly.
Don, if you look at your Google Analytics you will see that your traffic has remained steady. Robin already confirmed in another thread that the reduced stats on HubPages is a glitch.

I've got blue arrows too, but things seem normal on Analtyics, here's me comparing year-on-year:
My traffic month to date (Sept. 1-12) is down 23% versus the same MTD a year ago, despite more new articles.
Your graphic looks like you are down as well.
I wonder if we have two problems at the same time -- one technical and the other with Google.
THanks All, Sometimes I write things before I have my Morning Coffee! BIG MISTAKE on my part. LOL!
Have a Great Day,

Wow! Something amazing has happened over night! Nearly all my hubs have red up arrows next to them. Ones that were getting 200 views a day have gone up to 700 views. My normal range of page views in a day for all my hubs is around 800, now the figure is 2,400! I'm very happy about this but is it a...

The graph above shows my traffic for the last year. generally it was on a downward turn (due to niches getting old) - I did lose a fair bit of traffic due to Panda - but the biggest swings for me have come after the subdomain switch.I've had for distinct surges and four distinct plunges (the grpah...

Having been with Hubpages for getting on two years now, and having penned 83 Hubs, I think it's time I threw the towel in. Over that time, I conscientiously stuck to all the rules and guidelines, and was rewarded by views gradually rising to around 350 per day with earnings around $25 per month. I...

I've been on HP all day, basically and have been checking my stats. Within the last hour hour or so one of my hubs have jumped from less than 10 views to 566 views all from within my subdomain. This is weird and may be a glitch of some sort. There are 562 visitors from cardisa dot hubpages dot com.

I just wrote a Hub last week entitled "Adam Lambert Sexed for Success". It did quite well, in fact it receive over 1700 views in less than a week. (that's good for me, anyway). My overall ranking on hubpages as of this morning was 96. The article was ranked anywhere from 87 - 93 and the...
