    How many visits does a hub have to get before it gets one or two of those cute little red triangles beside the title? Does anyone know?

      I don't think there's a set amount - I think it's a percentage of total hits - I've had hubs with 3 hits getting a double arrow...

      *wow* I answered this 40 seconds after it was posted! I'm not really sitting on my computer hitting refresh every 10 seconds honest!

      Odd indeed.  I get those little red guys regularly but it appears my views on those hubs haven't increased all that much.  beats me????

      don't have a clue but they sure are "purty", especially if ya get two or three beside the same hub at the same time. but then there are those pesky little blue smile

        No way!  You can have two or three beside a hub.  Wow!  I'll look forward, eagerly, for that wonderful day when I may see that on my stats.  Coolness! smile

    I assume they use averages over a one day period. If you had no pageviews and all of a sudden you get 4 views, you'll see them arrows start appearing.

    I think you get the arrows when you have an increase in traffic flow to a hub that is not a brand new hub. I usually have 3-6 hubs with one or two arrows and they are my hubs that have been posted awhile and had the usual high amount of hits that a new hub tends to get-then the traffic begins to fall and eventually starts to stay steady with the amount of hits it receives (or goes to no views) and then; when the hub has an increase above the 'normal' amount of views for that particular hub-I get arrows.  Not too sure if I am correct, but that is what I notice with mine???

    I've noticed that if a hub gets more then 15 views in a week, I get a cute little red triangle  :3

    yeah, they come and go... I wondered if it also has to do with getting rated up?
