When you are looking at traffic stats on one of your hubs, if you see a hit coming from your own hub pages site name, is that hit from you viewing your own article, or could it be from people coming to it through your profile page?
Your stats shouldn't be counting your own traffic, otherwise they'd be skyrocketing on my accounts.
When you see hits coming from your own subdomain, this happens for a number of reasons. Either people are visiting from your profile page, or they are coming to your hub through links you've placed on other hubs of yours. Additionally, they may be coming from the "related hubs" section at the bottom of the page.
You can help the HubPages community highlight top quality content by ranking this answer up or down.
