Upswing in hub views, but not finding it in a google search?

    A. Boveposted 5 years ago

    Newish to HubPages and noticed one of my hubs "Sweet Potato-Carrot Soup" has received over 30 hits today, yet if I do a search for it on google, I don't come across it. I was futzing around with linking soup on another hub and accidentally clicked the sweet potato one (not sure if its tacky to link your own hubs to others), and it took a few tries to remove it. I may have generated a handful of clicks myself but certainly not over 30. I'm not complaining, mind you, but how can this be? Is there a way to see how many views you yourself generate when editing and whatnot? Thanks for the feedback!

      Some of your hits may be from other writers on Hubpages as well. People may be browsing around just happened to stumble upon your Hub. It could have also showed up in a "Related Hub" on someone else's Hub.

        Thank you, I'm coming across similar topics in other forums, my initial search came up empty. smile I appreciate you taking time to answer!

      Just to reply to another of your points, it's certainly not tacky to link between your hubs, so long as the content you are linking to is relevant to the person reading the original hub.

    I did just find the traffic sources area of my account. If the view are from the link to my own profile, is that my personal views from people finding my profile and clicking further? Or both?

    Hello,

    The best resource I'm aware of for tracking these kinds of questions is google analytics. Once you get it set up on your hubpages site, you'll be able to see which keywords people were searching for that led them to your articles. It's great to see what leads people to your site, and you can also type in those keywords into google yourself if you want to see how far up your page ranked using those terms.

    Oh--I almost forgot to add that you can even set up a filter in google analytics so that it doesn't track your own views. This way you know you're only seeing other people's clicks and views. I think the section your looking at in your account page, with your domain name, is just the people who've viewed your articles by first looking at your profile.

      Set up but not working! It says its active, but claiming there's no activity at all on my profile. Unless there's a delay in the info appearing? Otherwise, I must've done something wrong. Meep!

    It should only show page views from the time you've set it up, so you'll have to wait until you have more page views before you see any activity on google analytics.

    Hey A. Bove! Congrats on the Hub's early success!

    Keep in mind that you can learn more about sources by clicking on the "stats" button at the top of the Hub (visible only to you when you're logged in). That tool features not only major sources and traffic info, but also common keywords that people might be using when they *do* arrive at your Hub via search.

    Thanks Simone! Yes, I'm slowly learning all the features. Very much enjoying the site! smile
