    First let me say that many of the cosmetic changes made at HP really look sharp! There used to be a feature that came via email weekly. It showed the amount of profile views and hub views you got each week, and compared it as upper or lower by arrows to the week before. Is that still available, and if so, can you tell me how to re-activate it? I see a list of all my hubs, and the number of readers totaled for the time the hub has been written. But I can't find the weekly one to know by what percentage I'm going up or down. I have more activity than I did with the sub-domain, but can't see how much more. Thanks.

    That was in HPs newsletter Hub Pages Weekly. I think it comes out on Wednesdays. I just received one recently but come to think of it, it does seem like there was a bit of a gap between that one and the one before it.

    Jean, I can't answer your question but I definitely agree with your thought about how much more attractive some changes have made things.  I no longer hate so many of my own Hubs just because I'm not thrilled with how they look on the page.

    Jean, go to your My Account and click on "Profile" located just above the left menu column. That left column will change and on the list is Email Settings. Go there and make sure there is a check mark next to "Allow HubPages to contact you?" Check it, if not. Then, at the bottom save the changes.

    I do receive the HubPages Weekly, and so checked at the bottom and followed the "unsubscribe" link to the Email Settings. I see this is where we choose whether to receive it or not. Hope this clue is what you needed!

      OK Ms Dee, thanks,  I'll try that!

        There is a check mark by "Allow HP to contact you." I'll wait and see what happens this week.

    Jean, have you tried:

    1. Visiting your profile and clicking on 'Stats' to see your alltime traffic.
    2. Connecting your account to Google analytics?

      Yes, to both. But I'm just getting individual messages about who reads which hub. I miss the digest that gave a weekly total, and compared how it went up and down, by what numbers. I've allowed most of the contact things, and it looks OK to me. I do allow HP to contact me, but the individual things every time one person comments on a comment, are annoying to keep deleting. I answer anyone who comments on a hub, but unless it's a tech ?, don't want all that mail.

    You should also apply for Google WebMaster Tools and link your HubPages subdomain to it. This is really cool. It shows you all the Google +1 that were clicked on your Hubs. And it shows all the inbound links from other sites to your Hubs. It's nice to see who has been linking to you. In addition, it shows all the search queries that brought people to you through Google. All very useful information. 

    See How to Verify Your HubPages Subdomain in Google Webmaster Tools in the HubPages Learning Center.

      Thanks Glenn, I'll try that. So far no other suggestions listed here worked. I can't believe somebody asked if I connected to Google Analytics? As much as I am upset that I have spent the equivilant of a F/T job writing here and never had a payout, I'm not an idiot. Yes, people want to read things written at an 8th grade level. I wrote a piece of garbage about gardening and took pics of my yard. It was the highest hub for a week in my account, when I've tackled some complex subjects.

        I still have not received the same email I used to get with totals of readers of our profiles or the total or readers that read our hubs per week. I  will guess this has been done away with, and I'm sad, it was lots more helpful than much of the other mail I get.

          Jean, I don't get that anymore either.  But I get an email every day that shows new followers and new hubs of people I follow. 

          In any case, check your email settings under your profile in edit mode, Make sure you allow all the emails you want to get.

          As for seeing totals of readers, that information in always available under your account/hub listing. You can see it by day, by week, etc.

          The stats of individual hubs are very informative too, showing subdomain of hubbers who read your hub, view counts, search expressions used listed by search engine, and more.

          After all that if you still feel you are missing anything, Google Analytics and Google WebMaster Tools offer all the other information as we spoke about prior in this thread.

            HI Glen,
            I had done all the things suggested to me on this forum page, as this thread has been going for a few days. I just checked my regular e-mail, and believe it or not, finally got the info I wanted.  I realize the importance of all the other facts we get from HP. I just like to know how many  more or less people in total are reading my hubs and profile. So Maybe it comes out on Wed? Thanks for all the help and suggestions all.
