I've been playing around in Google Analytics today and I have a question about where my traffic is coming from.
I am getting a lot of traffic from small sites and blogs and it's listed as "referral traffic." I've gone to many of the sites and nowhere is there a link to any of my hubs.
Furthermore, I'm even getting traffic from the learning center here on HubPages, but again, I have absolutely no links over there.
Another weird one is traffic from something called hubpromo, which is not set as traffic from anything. It's listed as "other" in analytics.
Same here. I finally concluded that the link had come and gone.
The source of the traffic just tells you WHERE the traffic came from. It's quite possible that they did not land directly on your hub. You would need to look further to see what their entrance path was.
There are lots of ways to find out, but let's do this... Choose Content > Top Content from your dashboard. Click on one of your hubs. In the middle of the page to the right, select Entrance Path. This will show you where the reader came from on the site before they found you.
So let's say there was an ad from HubPages on XYZ.com or someone had a link there to one of their own hubs. Then let's say they get to HP and meander a bit, eventually getting to your hub. The "Traffic Source" would be XYZ.com, but the "Entrance Path" would be whatever page they were on before they found your hub.

I've had a few people sign up under my trackers when I send out emails of my hubs, but I was wondering what some of the rest of you have done as far as setting up a more unique way to have friends and family sign up...
