    I just looked at my Hubpages traffic sources.  I noticed something I've never seen before.  One of my sources clearly shows -1 for the traffic for the last 24 hours.  How can you have negative traffic?  Either somebody goes to your site, or they don't.  That score is under Google.com.sg.

        It kind of sounds like a null value.

        I'm sure it'll be better after the next update.  I hope.

          Can a null value return a negative value?

      Maybe if there is no traffic at all they penalize you for it.  Other than that, I don't know.

    i also found the same -1 traffic in 24 hours a few days ago...but didn't understood what does that means. before that i saw 0 traffic in 24 hours to some of my hubs but never a negative traffic.

    I am getting -1 once a day from google.nz. Could it be to do with the new rating system on Google?

            Hmmm ... wonder if that has anything to do with it.

            Just took a look at my other account, and there's a -1 from google.com.pk. With the way things are going at the moment, we can't really afford minuses ... whatever they have to mean.

                You wouldn't be able to see it even if I did tell you - which I never would ...

    The negative numbers has been going on for a long time, but it is worse now it seems.
    With everything going on with Google, it may be time for me to look for better options as others have. This is getting ridiculous.

    to see a -1 or any negative count is more depressing than the constant "o" zeros I guess...hmm

    Ok I have one from google.com.ph so I'm curious also.  Is it possible it is from an examiner or test site that was done twice and so we don't get any hits they do a -1.  Just a thought

    I hope somebody knows or finds out  Thanks

    I think it has something to do with how HP counts stats, isn't it a rolling 24 hour period? hmm

    It sounds like this is pretty common.  It's only a -1, so I'm not going to worry about it.  If I start seeing larger numbers though, then I'll begin to question the accuracy.

    Thank you for all of the great info.  It really helped.

    is this possibly part of the Google +1 program,where readers rate article?
    i guess I'm lucky to have a zero "0"...roll

    Me too!  I just got a -1 from google.co.in.  I'm guessing my fans in Indonesia have been neglecting to read my hubs. lol
