I think something strange is going on with traffic. While watching my traffic on Real-time overview I saw another person's hub show up in my traffic. It showed up under top active pages. Now how does that happen? The page was a karma about squirrels. I don't have a hub by that name. Anyone got any ideas how this would happen.
I should have said strange hubs on my traffic page.
Is it possible the traffic was coming from that hub? I know when I look in my trafficsources I have several other hubs listed that are bringing traffic to my hubs.
Could the traffic you re seeing one of your referrals?
Whoa.. wait! What is real time overview? Have I been missing something? I'm known to do this:0/
Go to Google Analytics
You will see which one of your hubs are being visited in real time.
Could it be that someone posted a link in their hub to your hub?
Something strange is going on all over HubPages. My feed hasn't moved in over an hour! I've posted two new hubs in two days--one of them just over an hour ago--and hardly any of my regular readers are finding them. I know things slow down on the weekend, but they don't usually crawl to a STOP. My traffic is so low it's making me ill to look at my stats.
I've seen that happen too - there are several hubbers that are not me. And they are not my referrals. I think there is a glitch in the system sometimes because after that those weird ones usually just go away.
It wasn't real time information though, just the performance page.
Jamie---I'd heard of real time overview and tried to find it and according to Google not everyone has it but you can request it. I got myself on a list so when they do more of it I hope to "get" it.
That's all I know.
Something was wrong with my profile page. I may have fixed it in Analytics.
I guess some people add your links to one of their pages and sometimes do not tell you. In my traffic sources I have several other Hubbers, but only one of them actually informed me what they were doing
It's really simple acutally. When people view a slideshow on your hub, at the end they have a range of other slide show's to view as well. If they happen to view a slideshow of another persons hub, the view would still be from your hub - so analytics considers that page as yours.
No doubt, something is happening that hasn't been fixed yet.

I was watching google analytics in real time when something really strange happenned. To put it into context I usually have about 10 to 12 hits an hour at the moment, I just had 15 hits in a minute, now its nearly 50 in half an hour. The problem is that they are all marked "DIRECT" with...

Up until Thanksgiving Day I was averaging $9.28 a day. Since then it has gone in the tank. While I know the traffic is about the same. It has dropped away to almost nothing. Something is not right here folks.

I love HubPages, I feel that I have learned so much here and my confidence in writing non-fiction took such a huge leap when I was invited onto the Apprenticeship program last year. I have met some wonderful people here - both staff and other Hubbers. But as may other people have said, the idling...

I recently had a hub un-featured for engagement, as the half-circle indicates. I think this is an unfair practice and should be eliminated entirely. Here's why I feel this way:Our hub traffic is often affected by the time of year, holidays, seasons, and current events to name a few. If left alone,...

An issue with one of my hubs has been going on for a while. I wrote a hub a while ago that reached the top of page two in Google for certain keywords. After a few days in this position, it disappeared from Google search altogether, and in its place popped up someone elses hub using the exact same...

Today I woke up to find my hubs went from 2000 PLUS hits a day to only 600 overnight! This is very strange. Also I have a hub that was waiting to be published and it went down to only '9' overnight!!! This is quite impossible! What is happening???
