Anyone else having wickedly varying numbers between view reported and views on analytics...
One hub in particular of mine is showing on the main account screen as having 6-7 times the actual views that are showing in analytics and HP's traffic sources screen.
Anyone know why this would happen?
HP Stats are not accurate In fact they are often freeze due to some bug.
My HP stats shows more views so I figured that because HP records views from the site and my own views while analytics records mostly search engine traffic and subdomain traffic. I don't think my own views count in analytics. I could be wrong.
Hubpages stats shows your views over 24hours, Analytics would show your views for that particular day
I am confused. When I look at my total views, ever, am I looking at my own views too? How can it possibly be helpful for a system to count the author's own views?
As for Google Analytics, perhaps a site of this size could require that Google do a better accounting for the difference than "this is our secret".
Yes, HP could discount your views. It's not that hard to set Analytics to ignore them also (you can do that yourself, if you wish).
However: If you have any quantity of traffic where it makes any sense to look at it in hopes of gleaning information, you have enough that YOUR views are an insignificant and meaningless blip of noise. If you have so little traffic that your views are at all important, there is nothing of any value to you in Analytics anyway - the sample size is far too small for you to draw any conclusions.

Normally my Hubstats are consistent with my Google Analytics stats but for the past couple of days my Google statistics have been showing around 500 more views than Hubpages have been showing, is there still a problem going on with Hubpages reporting? jimmy

Well, its official, my hubs are all down about 39%. Strangely enough my profile views are up to 40%. This is very odd cause usually my profile views are never that high. Has anyone else experienced this? Maybe its just random.

I'm racking up views from Facebook on one particular article, but they're not showing up on my traffic sources page. This happened yesterday and today.

I am not very intelligent when it comes to traffic stats, so sue me..lolWhy is Google Analytics stats more than the HP stats for the same period? Before you assume that Google logs my visits to my hubs, let me clarify that I have hardly been visiting my own hubs. I have an excess of 400+ visitors...

We had this same problem a couple of weeks ago and it was resolved. Same problem again today though, so I'm reporting it. (If we don't report problems, how can we expect them to be fixed?)1 day stats are abnormally low, so I checked the stats on an individual hub. The 'day' stat there is...

For the past two days, I've noticed that my hub score have deceased or increased, but the views have stayed the same as yesterday. Does anyone know what's going on with HP? Will they be updated or remain frozen? Even my new hubs have no views at all. :-(
