    You, know. For a long time I have been meaning to find a/the Google traffic chart. There has to be one. As Google traffic goes, so goes internet traffic. Anyone already know that link?

    I have one blue arrow, but no red ones ... I think that means everything is fairly stable ...

    They may be blue, but you needn't be down...

    If you've recently edited those hubs, all those edit sessions count as views.  When you stop editing, and there are only a couple of visits, it looks to Hubpages like there's been a drop in traffic..but if you factor out your own views, it probably evens out.

    Don't sweat it.  If you want more traffic, you'll need to promote the hub articles elsewhere or bone up on the SEO/keywords.  Or drop hints about your hubs' existance in these here forums (avoiding actual links, mind you). wink

I am getting used this after four weeks here I just couldn't care. I do my best (at least try to) and don't worry about the rest!!  Smile it goes up and down!! Your next week will be better!! Better luck!!

    I have over 300 hubs.....and I have 37 blue arrows and 17 red arrows.  But, just to give you some perspective....the first red arrow appears 20 or so down the page once they're ranked by number of pageviews in 24 hrs.  The thing is,even though the bulk of my hubs have no arrows at all, they are still some of the highest traffic hubs I have.  They are just experiencing typical steady traffic right now.

      My traffic is up by quite a bit in the last two weeks and still rising. I have written a couple of hubs, but the traffic is much broader than that with a higher percentage coming from google. CTR is climbing nicely too!

      If you ever work out was causes any of this let me know Olie! smile
      I know we are supposed to have a handle on our hubs after being here so long, but hubs still leap up from their death-beds and top the charts out of the blue, while other ever-green hubs that have been firing lose momentum. I haven't a clue! lol

    The Blue-Arrow adventure continues. Here, there, and everywhere. My retinas are being blinded by them. Good thing it is my favorite color.

    It has gotten even better. I now have negative search traffic. No joke, I am actually getting -1’s, -2’s, etc.

    This posting is in the nature of general ranting, entertainment, and

    For those who do not already know…:

    Internet traffic drops dead around this time of year.

    According to lots of previous forum posts, the negative traffic numbers have been going on “for years”. They mean nothing.

    I just thought I would update this thread to see what other demented thoughts are out there…
