Hey! I read a very good article on here, wish I would have book-marked it, but I will find it again...anyway...it mentioned backlinks and listed some sites to start with, so I have spent the evening doing that. One of the sites, Xomba, I finished about an hour ago and went back to check. I listed my links as "xombytes", which means I just bookmarked my links to my hubpages hubs to increase traffic. According to Xomba, I have already had about 80 reads on my various links...but when I check my hubpages I'm not seeing that increase in those numbers there, and I am not seeing an increase in my page impressions on adsense to account for these additional views of my hubs...can some one tell me what is going on? and how this all works? Because if I am not benefiting, I am wondering why waste the time?
I only know of few ways to measure your traffic and that is (1) thru the back office where all your Hubs are listed and (2) atop each Hub you have is a statistic counter, which has different measurements, such as day, week, month.
I personally haven't tried backlinks, as of yet, and I've been here two months, my hubs have presently received 3800 views and I'm not advertising my Hubs anywhere, as of yet.
How ever, I do realize your reason for being here could be different than mine, so I leave with you that.
I hoped I helped.
I appreciate your response! I have not noticed this counter you mention atop each hub...I am going to look at that now!
If you want more detailed stats, you can sign up for Google Analytics. It does a much better job of telling where your traffic is coming from and what various keywords the search traffic is using to find your hubs.
Follow the instructions here to set it up. Not much to it. I have not really done much with Xomba yet, though.

It is my first time to have seen lots of red upward triangles to indicate good traffic on my hubs. Thank you Hubpages and Google.

I did a little experiment with opting into the EC program for three months. To begin with,last year one of my better performing hubs become Editor's Choice. That hub was getting an average of 20o+ views per day, peak....

I have no idea what happened, but a ton of my hubs just got double red flags! My traffic went from a couple thousand views daily to nearly 10,000 overnight!!This is insane! Has this happened to anyone else?
