    I like the little triangles indicating a hub page's traffic is getting more or fewer visitors, though not clear why it gets multiple triangles - some of my pages on my stats have two red triangles rather than just one - if the trend is that the page is still getting better, surely just leaving the same triangle on would suffice. I'd love it if a page goes viral, but it could then end up with an endless string of triangles. Am I reading this correvtly?

      I think so... I however have only seen one blue or one red on each hub but I guess there would be more for better traffic and more for really dropping traffic

      The most you get are two red triangles smile

    The blue triangles depressed me when I started.  All of a sudden blue triangles everywhere.  I thought I was doomed.

    However, by constantly revisiting my own pages I have managed to keep them at bay.

    Red ones?  Didn't know you could get red ones.  I expect they're even worse.

      Red is good! Red means raising traffic. Blue bad, blue dropping traffic. Two arrows mean a lot of raising or dropping traffic.

        What about the symbol Hubpages gives you on more controversial hubs.  I can't copy it, but it looks like a clenched hand with the middle finger raised?

            .. and then there's the one like an upside down cross on my Best Ways to Resurrect Satan hub.

            OK.  I'm only kidding.

          I have never seen that one either! Maybe it is special to you wink

          I do know there is a malicious links symbol, a broken links symbol as well as needs revision coloration to let you know you have a naughty boy tongue
