I wish there was a way to determine on the traffic stats which clicks were me so I could figure out my real stats. If there is a way can someone please explain how. Thanks!
Link your account with Google analytics then apply a -1% to account for your own incidental page views.
thanks, that is a really good idea. I had not thought about adding Google analytics. I realize it will not be as relevant once the traffic gets to a certain point but when you are just getting started it can really help. thanks again
if your traffic stats are low enough that your own vies make a big difference then they are probably too low to really worry about anyway. Sorry if that sounds harsh, but it simply means that you need to spend more time promoting.
When you say lcicks, I hope you are not talking about clciking on your adverts, if you click your own adsense ads you will be banned and lose all current earnings.
thanks thisissoli for the info and no that does not sound harsh. I am new to HP but not to online marketing so I do know about the adsense clicks. I was mainly talking about the traffic to your hubs. I realize it will take time to build up the number of visitors, it was just a thought.
In Google Analytics, you can use the Filter Manager to filter out traffic from your IP address--assuming it's a static IP address. If you don't know your IP address, go to whatismyip.com
I know people keep saying their views on their on hubs and profile count on their stats - but mine don't count on mine - I've checked it out numerous times. So I don't know why this is. . .

This is a serious suggestion.The stats is a sore point for many hubbers. I say if HP can't fix it then remove it. No use having it if we can't get an update at least daily. The page views haven't moved for one week and in other forum it says that the issue has been resolved.Remove this or fix it so...

Is there a way within Hub Pages to see which articles are only receiving Hub traffic? I try to beef up the low performing Hubs but it would help to know which Hubs have no outside traffic. Or is the score of the Hub sufficient to monitor the lack of Google traffic?

You may have noticed that the stats button on your hub now says "stats disabled" and that your total hubs views are not moving up. We had a hardware failure on one the servers that we use to record and process the millions of views we get a day. We are working to restore the...

Ever since the switch to subdomains, I have seen specific subdomain names listed on the traffic stats for individual Hubs; and on the Traffic Sources Page, the numbers for HubPages have seemed to decline (understandably). Recently, I have seen higher numbers for HubPages.com, and I don't...

I've been hearing lots of positive posts from lensmasters whose lenses transferred to HP recently that their hubs are getting a lot more "traffic" than previously as Squidoo lenses.I too have noticed that my "traffic" is rising and I am hoping that it will be sustained thanks to...

I've received some more information from our engineering team regarding the recent issues with stats processing.The stats processing mechanism is a bit complicated (due to the sheer amount of data to process), with many interconnected parts.Unfortunately, this means that a single failure can cause...
