    One of my hubs has been visited 431 times by another hubber, way too many times if you ask me. I'm suspicious but don't want to imply that something sinister is going on. It might be that they love my hub and can't stop a fatal attraction? Should I just ignore the stat?

      Well they must be hopeless at copying it, if that's what they're there for...

        Yes!! Why so many visits I wonder.I should email the person. 431 times.

          Is there a way to tell who has visited a hub?

      Hi chef,

      As Eric mentions, usually this happens because visitors are coming to your Hub from that person's subdomain, meaning they have found you in the Related Hubs section of one of that person's Hubs. It's nothing to be worried about (and actually kind of a nice perk of Related Hubs). smile

        Here's a true story from a couple years ago...

        A Hubber had one of their hubs go viral.

        All 6 hubs plastered underneath it were mine. I kid you not!

        My traffic skyrocketed. Day after day after day. True nirvana.

        Then the Hubber that had the viral hub got into an argument with HP and deleted the hub while still viral!

        Banged my head on the table for a couple days over that. lol

            And just to be sure there is no misunderstanding, it was the Hubber that deleted the hub, not HP.

        Thanks for the reply. I'm reassured that there are no underhand tactics involved!!

      your hub must be gone viral by someone, check out who did that.

    What makes you think a specific Hubber is visiting your Hubs? If you are seeing 400+ visits from another Hubber's subdomain it simply means visitors (not the Hubber) are coming from one or more of their Hubs to one or more of yours. Most likely you write on the same subject and your Hub(s) are appearing at the bottom of the theirs in the "Related Hubs" section. Less likely but also possible is that they have intentionally linked from one of their Hubs to one of yours.

    Either way it is nothing to be concerned about. :-)

      Absolutely nothing to worry about.

      Yep, agreed. Visitors are landing on their Hub and then seeing yours and clicking through.

      Thank you. Good thinking, this could be the reason. All's well that ends well I guess. I just haven't seen anything like it on other hub stats.

      Exactly, I have noticed this too. People are just clicking on your hub from other related hubs.
