Can we use Google Webmaster Tools through Analytics with HubPages? I am trying to maximize my marketing, traffic, etc. and am trying to find out what can and cannot be used with HubPages. I am still a newbie!
Also, beyond posting to social sites, is there any other way to draw attention to older hubs that aren't getting very much traffic?
If anyone has any other tips or tricks of the trade you would love to share, I would love to hear it! Thanks!
Not sure if i entirely understand you but yes, you can use analytics with hubpages. Just go your affiliate settings and enter your analytics code. Ive started doing it and its very useful. Then there is a SEO tool which thisisoli gave me which is good for analyzing your competitors websites. Just do a search for Traffic Travis and download. About the old hubs, you can just change something in the text every now and them which will help your ranking. Also make sure it is SE optimized, which you can check with TT as well. You can put your url in and it actually gives you an SEO score. If you dont know how to optimize a hub for the search engines you might want to put 'seo course' in the search box in hubpages. One thing that doesnt work very well with hubpages is backlink checkers. I dont know if there is any way to find out what your backlinks are for hubpages, which kinda sux
Hope that helps some

You cannot (unfortunately) use webmaster tools with hubpages.
But, you can use analytics, so it's not all bad!
Traffic Travis is my personal tool of choice for looking at SEO stats, there are plenty of tools out there though!

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?

I know it's too early too ask, but I am curious. I have published 6 hubs but haven't got a single view from search engine traffic yet. So, How much time till you see some traffic?
