I have never seen this before, so it is odd to me.
During my review of page stats, noticed several views over the last two days from: docs.google.com?!
What are they and how is a document able to get my link or view that link? -Thanks, James.
Thats a online version of office documents by Google, its in competition with Microsoft's office.
Googledocs effectively allow one to use a document creator & spreadsheet facility, yet these are saved online using a Google account. The benefit is that you can use and access these docs on any computer using the internet.
It is possible someone has saved a URL of one of your hubs and each time they open/click on it. It takes them to your hub.
Hope this helps
This is correct. A lot of times, if they are new to google docs and don't protect their document, you can see it by following the link.
With that said, it is important to always be careful when following links you find in your analytics, because some people create malicious sites with the idea of getting people to follow their referrer link.

"Paranoia" must think some of you, and honestly, I used to think the same. I didn't even believe that this was possible, even though Google mentioned that they have ways to detect link spamming. But the...
