    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.

        No I checked no one would have found my hubs from that hub and no one has left a comment on it for 2 years.

      Could this be the hub of a referral of yours?

        Go to Google Analytics

        click Home
        click Real-Time
        click Overview

        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?

        No there isn't a link to my hub in that 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.

      This was real time and I often watch it and this has never happened.

    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.
