How is it that my twitter account can consistently report 12 to 23 clicks on a link to a particular hub page and the hub pages traffic talley only shows 2 or 3 visitors on the same day? This has been happening for at least 2 weeks that I am aware of - never paid that much attention before but my twitter traffic has been better than ever lately so when I noticed a huge difference in visitors/popularity of some hubs, thought I'd check if anyone else was having this experience or could explain the discrepancy. Thank you.
Some website entities count bot/spider visits as "clicks". Some don't.
My speculation is Twitter does and HubPages doesn't.
Thanks for the response. Does that mean they ignore traffic from Twitter? What if someone makes a purchase from a hubpage arrived at via twitter?
Does it matter if Twitter posts use A) the hub page url, B) the hub page url in a shortened version or C) buffer.com or similar service to schedule tweets?
But real people are clicking on the tweet to go the page being promoted, so why is the hubpages visitor count so much lower than the count on twitter?
If I'm understanding your question right, I think the answer is the numbers you see via your twitter link are people clicking on your tweet and whether they click on your link and go to the page is a different matter. That's just what I gather from my experience. it can get frustrating.
Thank you, bat115 - that makes more sense - but I doubt that 100% of clicks are to my twitter page and not the link. It is strange that twitter does not show up as a traffic source as I have been getting 100+ clicks per day on HP promotion tweets...Yes, it is frustrating!
Thanks again, "bat" and paradigm search.

Please forgive my ignorance, folks, but I'm really not sure that I understand how Adsense works. I can see that clicks on Ads give you cash, but why is there also a running total for "impressions"?Firstly,...

Hi all,Just a short note that hopefully doesn't run afoul of AdSense's rules on telling your earnings.I will say that it took 8-9 months to get my first check from AdSense. My next check should be ready in about a week,...
