Understanding Google Analytics

    I'm new to Google Analytics and I'm having some trouble understanding it. I check the sources of several hubs and see sites that don't link to my hubs at all. I don't get a lot of pageviews, so I thought maybe it was because I was in that source site and simply went to my hub in the same tab to edit it or something, but then again, I usually go from "my account" on this site.

    How can I find more about the source?

    If I understand you correct, you are seeing traffic coming to your hubs from websites that don't have links to your hubs. That just means that there's a link or ad on that website somewhere which led the visitor over to HubPages. They probably landed on another page here or another hub and somehow meandered over to your hub.

    Just because they found their way to your hub doesn't mean they landed on your hub when they first got here. Make sense?

      It does makes sense, I thought it meant it was a direct link from that site to the hub, but that clears it up. Thanks.
