Is there any way I can figure out from which Facebook account/page a sudden inflow of traffic to a hub is coming from? Google Analytics doesn't provide any details and when I search the URL on Google, no results for Facebook show up in the search. Maybe the posts on Facebook haven't been indexed yet.
If you go to Analytics, Reporting, Acquisition, Social and then Overview and scroll to the bottom of the page you will see which social networking sites have readers for your articles. If you click on Facebook, it will show you which articles are read in any given day on FB.
This provides more details about the type of Facebook traffic but is it possible to get the full link to a referring account? Normally I select Behavior - Site Content - All Pages - Overview and then Secondary dimension, Acquisition - Referral Path. Unfortunately this doesn't give any info either. The best thing to do is probably just search the URL in Facebook.
If it is facebook that's bringing you extra traffic, then putting the topic or title of your hub into the facebook search bar should bring it up. Though depending on how common your title or topic is, it might take a lot of narrowing down or wading through other posts before you're able to find the ones that are bringing traffic to your hub.
I'm not sure if you tried searching facebook this way, or just by pasting the URL that adsense gave you into the facebook search bar. The former "should" show you what you're looking for, the latter would probably result in zero results.
Not sure if this helps at all? Let us know if you figure out anymore clues

But I am wondering why there seems to be competition in the real google world and no competition showing for it in the external keyword tool world?
