I don't get it. I'm in Analytics, and there are a number of cities listed, but the top of the list, in the "city" column, it simply says, "not set." and that is the highest percentage of views, still, it's only 4.27% !!! The next two, at much lower %ages, are London and New York... weird... I live in California! (and my bounce rate is in the stratosphere! )
London, Cabimas, Portland, Saskatoon, Victoria, Unionville, Hamilton, Baton Rouge, Zagreb and a stranger from Islamabad. At least I haven't seen the one from "White House", which seemed located in the right spot, for a long time. Big Brother was watching!
@ Wilderness: WOW--I posted a response to your "Novisad" location yesterday, and it is not shown. :-( Boo, hiss! So, I don't know if it ever showed up, and someone didn't like it and it was deleted, or if it just never posted, and you didn't get to see it. It wasn't negative at all..it was just a 'wow--imagine that' kind of comment. Basically, that I'd never heard of Novisad before I started following an animal rescue group from there on Face Book, called "Novisad Cats." And now, just because I've heard of it there, all of a sudden, it shows up again here. Weird how that happens a lot in life....
Yes, sometimes there are no visitors. There's something a bit Big Brother about it... but it can be interesting to watch if you're using social media to see responses from a tweet, etc., or simply to observe which keywords are bringing traffic from specific locations.
In regards to Google and Amazon payouts, for those who have already had one...I'm wondering if hubpages takes there 40% out before you are notified by Google or Amazon that you have so much verified, or if they wait until you get a $100 payout and then take $40 from that?
Just curious, I asked the question a few months ago about disabling the right click button on our articles, but there is so many ways that a person can steal content anyway. Just curious, I wonder if Hubpages could incorporate a feature such as this into the site that would automatically notify...
"Studies show that traffic from Google+ to sites that have the +1 button is 3.5 x greater than traffic from Google+ to sites without the +1 button."[redacted]Tell me again why we don't have the G+ button available on our hubs?
