    I'm seeing this url in traffic source: http: //z.hubpages.com

    What is that actually? does it mean the inbound linking within hubpages? Please explain...

    I think so. Hubpage admin can clearify.
    We need Paul's intervention.

    The z.hubpages.com domain is where we host our images.  It utilizes a content delivery network, meaning that there are separate data centers for each area of the world.  The result is that images and other static content will load more quickly for most visitors (than if we hosted them all at our main data center here in California).   I'm not quite sure why you are seeing referrals from that domain, but I'll look into it.  It's certainly nothing to be concerned about.

      Could it be because of a Google Image Search?

        That can be right. Google image search urls are showing like images.google.com, images.google.ca and so on. I think hubpages image hosting has the url z.hubpages.com, still I just wanted to clarify. Thanks to Paul.
