Has anyone else noticed their page view counter acting up? Last month, I could have sworn that the number was over 17,500 and when I checked back, it was just over 17,000. I then started watching it closer, so I know it was around 17,700 again and now? 17,113 again! Am I going crazy or is this really happening?
Hi connie.... which specific counter are you refering to?? If you are talking about the one that looks at "the last 30 days" then that like an investment can go up as well as down as it is looking at the "last 30 days" - so if a high day drops out to day 31 and your new day 1 is low view day then your views will drop...
Does that make sense?? Is it what you mean??
Thanks to you all for replying. Yes, I am talking about my statistics and the particular number is the total page views ever. I am on my third go around in the 17,000's. When it went back to 17,000 last time, I was unsure if I really knew the numbers and though I must have made a mistake. Still, I decided to watch it more closely. I do not know the exact number I was at this last time I looked but it was close to 18,000. When I looked again, it was back in the low 17,000's again.
Connie... if you wish to get the most accurate details on pages views.. then go check your account with Google Analytics. However, you will often find that the figures shown by HP and GA will vary. IMO Analytics are, for whatever reason, more accurate.
If you want to pimp your stats page though... I'm happy to send you a blue page counter like mine (above)
I appreciate your advice, Pearldiver. I guess I really am going crazy because I realized, or should I say remembered, what happened both times. It was definitely due to my own actions. I deleted several hubs on two different occasions. I realize that, along with those hubs, I deleted page views. That only makes sense. What doesn't make sense is my early on-set of dementia. Yikes!
I believe dementia sufferers often forget the time of day also. Just in case it gets worse for you (at any time).. please accept this gift below...
You can attach this to a cap or hairband, or maybe strap it to your wrist.. so that you will always know what time is!
Just Don't Forget to wind it Okay..
....and I was hoping it was battery operated. Darn! Oh well, I would hate to be thought of as a poor gift receiver,so thank you very much!

I am experiencing an overall average off 66 percent less page views per day, for seven days versus a week previous and for the past two months. Such a huge drop in page views makes me think that Google has tuned...

My HP traffic down since last three to four days and it's a matter of great concern for me. I have already written 50 hubs for the contest but still I am not seeing the traffic that I was seeing post google algorithm...

I know the more exposure we have, the more chances for page views. That is not what I am asking about here. I am wondering if we are effected by the quantity of hubs over the quality of maybe a smaller number of hubs.I...

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...

I have read that 200 hubs will start to being in a reasonable amount of views and earnings. I just wondered how many daily views that equates to approximately? 2000?
