While my hits are relatively small, I'm curious where they're coming from. The "Traffic Sources" icon on Hub Pages shows about 10 pct from Google but Google Analytic puts the number at around 35 percent... What's the disconnect?
-It can take a few hours to a few days for traffic sources to update on Hubpages. Analytics is more accurte.
-Analytics is on a standard day (12-12) while Hubpages is on a rolling 24 hour day (24 hours ago, which changes each hour.)
thanks. although it seems like several hundred on hubpages aren't accounted for at all, although they're showing up in Analytics.
If you're talking about this page: http://hubpages.com/my/hubs/traffic-sources
Then I've seen that it takes the longest to update - in fact it wouldn't surprise me if it's a week or more out. I find it's only good as a general overview.
The results on each hub itself are more accurate, although they can be up to a day or so out, as well.
You have no idea how helpful that post was to me, WryLilt. I'm not one to jump up and post my questions (I like to figure things out myself), but I've been using the HP traffic-sources page regularly and I couldn't make sense of its numbers next to the numbers on Analytics. The fact that it's possibly up to a week off makes so much sense.
On Analystics aren't they also aggregating traffic from other countries? Check and make sure you are adding up all of the googles.

Looking down my list of traffic sources I have two search sites (avg and comcast) that each say "-1" views over the last 24 hours. What in the world does that mean? I assumed it's a stats glitch or...
