In Google Analytics I notice I get traffic that is listed under another hubber. When I go to the page there are no links in their article, so I assume they come from the other suggested hubs at the end of the page. If that is the case, who gets paid for that? The page that the link came from (the other hubber), me or Hubpages?
In most cases revenue comes from users who clicks AdSense ads on your Hubs (there is are also ebay and Amazon for example).
Google analytics isn't used for HubPages revenue calculation, nor is revenue related directly to traffic for Hubs.
You share a percentage of all the clicked ads on your Hubs.
Check out the earnings for your account to get a better idea.
It doesn't matter from where or how users get to your hub. As long as they view it and you have the Ad Program on you will get paid.
Authors are not paid based on traffic to their Hubs.
Traffic can certainly influence what revenue you do make, but in some cases it is possible for someone to view your Hub and you receive no revenue from it, depending upon what ads if any they click.
But, if a person comes to your Hub from a link in another author's Hub, then no, that author does not receive revenue from ads clicked in your Hub.
Lol. I don't really know what I meant. Hey, traffic is traffic right!
