I've been noticing something odd, which I haven't seen happening before. Every day for the last 3 or 4 days, my view counts have been behaving rather oddly... I see traffic decreasing for the day, when it was previously higher during that same day.
I see no logical reason why my view counts would be dropping like this. Has anyone else noticed this issue or does anyone have an explanation?
Note: I'm not referring to views from a previous day not being there today, I'm saying that views that were on my hubs just a few hours ago are now gone. I'm losing like 30% of my traffic a day to this phenomenon.
Views are on a rolling basis counting the last 24 hours as the total. This is why the total varies during the 24 hour period. Watch the total views of the hub or hubs if you want a true count.
Ah, ok. Got it.
That makes sense. I hadn't noticed this before so was wondering if something was wrong. I guess I was just paying closer attention to the views than usual. I wasn't aware it worked like that. For some reason I assumed it followed a different structure, but that does seem to be logical.
Thanks for the explanation.
What is the Hub Karma then for? And how is it that a hub is rated before it is published and then gains in its Hub Karma score as time passes? What is happening to the Hub? What are happening to the views. Why would Bud be asking about missing views if views can not dissapear? He did not ask a dumb question but one that you Randy did not report a similar experience. So how do you (lol) how do you know these things>?
Obviously you did not understand Randy's answer.
You need to read the answer more carefully. The views do not disappear. If you have other questions, start a new thread.
I learned these things from other Hubbers and didn't consider it a dumb question at all. And I am not surprised at your having a former account here. But I sincerely doubt you learned anything the first time around if your latest posts are any indication.
Hub Karma does not exist anymore.
So...who were you before you created a new account?

Since I migrated here from Squidoo two months ago, I've seen a steady stream of threads in this forum, complaining about lost page views. There are a lot of theories about why it's happening, and how much it's...

Stats have updated three times today. The one day, seven day and 30 day totals have changed but the 'Page Views Ever' have remained the same with each update. The last time this happened (in October) I lost...

My traffic had been picking up in a gradual manner. I was happy with it. Suddenly yesterday one hub got almost 400 hits, it had been holding at just under 100 per day, which I thought was good. My total traffic is at an...

Last week I opted back in to the EC program and woke up the next morning to see three of my hubs marked as EC with one of them being one of my better performing hubs. Despite my reservations I decided to watch and give...

One of my game guides gets 100 views a week, even though the game came out in 2014. When I wrote it, I didn't really think it'd do as well as it is. Have any of your articles done surprisingly well?
