I just noticed this stat today. I never really looked at it before for some reason. Anyway, my lenses are all 4 or 5 stars. Does that number represent how long a visitor stays on my hub and are those considered good stats?

Right now I need to go into each hub and click on the Hub Metrics. This is a time consuming task, just to...

I've noticed recently that certain information is being removed from my stats.An example would be that my hub on atheism which was written about 20 months ago and which has the duration of time people spent on it a full five stars now saying that it hasn't been measured yet.That's not true. It used...
