Zibbet Q&A: My views are going down instead of up. Why?
When you click the Shop Performance Stats link on your My Zibbet page, you’re taken to an overview, or ’snapshot’ page. Note that the green box at the top of the page is labeled ‘Shop Stats for the last 30 days’. The number of Shop Front Views changes everyday. It can increase or decrease (but rarely stays the same), from one day to the next. Each day, a new day’s worth of views is added to the 30 day total while the ‘oldest’ day’s number is subtracted. If the number of views in the new day is less than the number of views in the oldest day, the 30 day total will decrease by the difference. If the number of views for the new day is greater than the number of views for the oldest day, the 30 day total will increase by the difference.
For example, your 30 snapshot total was 414 yesterday. That number has changed to 409 today. This shows that your newest day had five less views than your oldest day. The calculation looks something like this:
Snapshot Total Today = (Snapshot Total Yesterday - Oldest Day) + Newest Day
Perhaps you had 20 views on the oldest day and 15 views on the newest day:
Snapshot Total Today = (414 - 20) + 15 = 409
Please note that views for individual days are not available for you to see.
To see the number of shop views you’ve had so far for the current calendar month, click the ‘Monthly Shop Views’ link. The number of views for the current calendar month will increase (or remain the same) from one day to the next until the end of the month. This number should steadily increase as the month progresses.
When the calendar changes to the next month, the monthly total is reset to zero. However, the 30 snapshot total isn’t reset.
