My Stats say my Profile was not viewed last week (see attachment), but I had several DECLINES from clients?
Another buggy new feature?
Does this apply for people visiting my profile from outside (I.e. not logged in, who followed a link from my webpage to my Upwork profile)?
I know for a fact a few people have visited my profile so this stats are not accurate!

Natalia, the client does not have to "view" a profile to decline an application. The metric is working ok.
On a different note, your profile is far too good (excellent reviews and experience + portfolio) to be getting below average application views, interviews and hires.
Is it possible that you could be applying to incompatible jobs (cheap clients etc)?
Below average hires I have but I work long term jobs, so I would expect mine to be lower, but my views has dropped to 1 last week. Setu something is off on the views. The funny part with mine is at the peaks the highest I have had is 4 views. But if that is considered more then my peers as my stats shows it is a big joke. See attachment.
The points are 2 views, 1 view, 3, 4, 1 and 0. Although my graph shows I am viewed more often then my peers, and Interviewed more often. I know why I am not hired as often as I have turned down several jobs after interviewing as well as I stated earlier I work long term jobs.
It doesn't make any sense.
Suzanne, as far as I know the "you were viewed" statistic pertains to how often your applications were viewed compared with those of other freelancers in that category.
The other (new) graph supposedly shows you how many times a client (anybody?) looked at your profile - after you came up in a search etc.
My graph shows an offensive 0.
That is what I have experienced. This is why I think both graphs are showing the "same" views generated. This could be the reason so many had a sharp fall in the last month because the invitations dried up - hence no views.
It is also possible for past clients to find your profile even when set to private.
So there are only two things for the freelancers set to private to be viewed their profile by the old clients which will never see after hire or if you apply a job and someone see your profile.
So we will be always at -%.
That is correct. The difference between the two metrics is that You Were Viewed shows how often you were viewed comparing to other freelancers in your category while Profile Views count is a total by week of the number of separate people who have viewed your profile.
