well the red arrows were short lived yesterday..today is mostly blue and low stats...
all this red arrows and blue arrows is an emotional roller coaster lately
Stacie, don't worry about it.. I think it has more to do with what's going on in the world right now. People are unsure.
Another factor could be spring break.
Friday hits go down... this is normal. Also if you want your prealgo traffic, then consider reading Ryankett's new hub on Backlink Strategy. It reflects what we've all been discussing for quite some time.
I agree. It would be nice if those blue arrows would turn off every now and then. I try to just forget about it, but it stresses me out.
Yesterday was St. Patrick's Day and everyone I know was celebrating at our Irish Pubs.
But, in general this is going to be a roller coaster ride for awhile. Bits and piece of the algo will roll out. We won't even be aware of them. Many changes have been made at HubPages. We have no idea of how and if Google will respond.
Every dynamic on our hubs has changed. There are no easy solutions. I don't believe anything that we see for the next few months will be a long-lasting trend. So I'm not jumping for joy or crying in my beer for any of them.
The blue and red arrows are relative. Usually only to the past week. If you've been editing any of your hubs a lot, that counts as views. After you finish editing, it appears as a drop in traffic, whereas the traffic may be more or less normal...maybe These days, it's hard to tell.

This is very, very, unfortunate, but it seems I have been penalized by a Google Alg or something. I have OVER 100 HUBS that have BLUE ARROWS. My traffic went down earlier this year a bit, but stayed consistent for several months. Now it has dropped by 50%. Not sure if this occurred today or...

I just noticed a blue arrow next to a hub I published this week. It's in the list of my hubs under my account page. What does it mean? It isn't the hub with the most views, unless it's a hub with the most views in the shortest amount of time, I do not know.

Okay, today I have noticed drastic decrease in page impressions and record low earnings in my adsense account. I had not thought before today that google algorithm change will have such a effect on our traffic and earnings. Today, I find myself what I was three years back. Only a few cents per...
