This may or may not be a stupid question...

    When you're looking at page view stats for a specific article and it tells you where the traffic source is- when it says: as the source, what does that mean? Does that mean they have a link to your article on their page? Some of the people who I have as sources for one of my articles are not followers, so I'm confused.

    Does that question even make sense? =/

      Yes, it makes sense.

      The hubber whose profile it links to either linked to your hub in one of theirs or your hub shows up in "related hubs" to the right of theirs. 

      I hope this helps!

      mmmhhh, interesting question.
      I'm not sure, but my assumption is that those people see my hub link on their home page because it's published in a topic they follow, or I have left a comment on one of their hubs.
      I did not think about backlinks, that could be possible too.
