Wondering what happened to your 'My Stats' page? We've made a big change to it recently which may come as a surprise. Here's what's going on: Scribd's made it easier for one and all by simplifying the whole page and reporting system. Now, we'll be better at consistently reporting the information to you and you'll still be able to easily see how many views your work on Scribd are getting whenever you want.
With this change, the 'My Stats' page will now only display the number of views your documents get. It'll list all the views within the last 30 days for you as well as the number of views for the lifetime of each document. You'll even be able to sort the list so it displays your documents based on the most popular title (the one with the most views) to help you learn what the readers on Scribd have been most interested in when it comes to your work on the site (and what needs to be promoted more to up the view count). A few changes are still being implemented so we sincerely appreciate your patience.
We know that for some of our authors this change won't come as welcome news. Information you were once able to view will be gone. However, we're sure that this change will end up working out better for everyone. We'll be able to dependably report the number of people viewing your work on Scribd.
We apologize in advance to all our publishers who regret this big change to the site and we sincerely hope that you see the benefit behind the simpler 'My Stats' page. We're trying our best to make reporting your document's views easy so you can always have that information at your disposal (no more of those missing stat days that took time to track down for you - that's sure to be good news). Please take your time in getting to know the new 'My Stats' page and if you have feedback for us, please send it directly to firstname.lastname@example.org
We're so happy you've chosen Scribd to publish your work on and hope you enjoy the your new 'My Stats' page.
