-2?

    How can you have a negative as a count for traffic sources? Makes no sense to me.....

    Hey Paula, I am not sure how it can be figured that you have a -2 for traffic. To me, a negative number never made any sense either. So, I guess I'm in the same boat as you, in the not understanding department.

    I've never seen a negative number in traffic myself. Wish I could be more help. hmm

      Well, thanks anyway...it's bad enough the Google traffic is next to none, but negative is just a slap in the face! sad

    It is the "Poltergeist of HubPages!" It is common it seems. The highest negative number I have seen was a -4 last week. Seems no one knows the answer as to why.

    I got a -1 from google.com.in today!  Sonovagun!  I better wake up my fans in Indonesia and beg them to read my hubs. lol I think it's just a way of telling us that traffic is down.. really down.. from that traffic source.  I had 20 views from Indonesia the last 7 days and yesterday it must have been 0 views, so today it's -1, maybe tomorrow if no one from Indonesia bothers to click any of my hubs, it'll go down to -2.  It's like the blue triangle we see in our account here in HP.  But this is the most ridiculous thing I've ever seen.  Hilarious really! considering my overall traffic is way down. sad

      Yay!  Someone in Indonesia viewed one of hubs today.  -1 is gone

    I've lost a lot of traffic too. However, I'm about 300-500 views a day and holding steady about there.

    I've made changes recently and some of those changes ended up killing traffic to some of my hubs and increasing traffic to others.

    Here is an idea(not that you're going to like it), but even with that said- check out your hubs, each one individually and look at the keywords, under stats. I found that many of my hubs were being located by "long keyword phrases" of at least 4 or more words. Maybe that can help.

    Other than that, it was great to see you, as always. smile big_smile

    Weird it seems, so far as traffic magic is concerned.
