Strange Analytics Info

    Anyone know what it could mean that Analytics is reporting many search engine hits to my pages through direct text from another hub? 

    In other words, my #1 search result through Google is a word-for-word paragraph from someone else's hub.  (And no, my hubs are not linked on the side of that page or anything like that.)

    Help?

    Ouch.  Nothing?

    One possible scenario....someone was checking to see if their work had been plagiarized (hence a whole paragraph being searched on), and it led them to HubPages. They decided to stay a bit and browse to see if there was anything else of theirs here.

    They could have done a keyword search once they got here, or browsed by topic, etc.

      Thanks, Irohner, but Analytics is telling me that I have dozens and dozens of hits on this paragraph.  I don't understand how this is possible...?

        Doesn't make sense to me.
