    I had an big increase in views on a very lightly read Hub today.  I have a Google Analytics account but don't really know my way around that app.  I checked the source traffic for the page and it says that most of the traffic is from Facebook and mobile.Facebook.  Is there a way to further determine the source of the traffic. I would guess that it's from a Facebook Group page.

      I've had some success in searching for the title in Google and changing the settings to "last twenty-four hours" or "within last week".

      You'll have to wait till google gathers the data (crawls the site).

        That's not the Hub, but thanks for the promotion smile

        I will try these suggestions and see what happens.

          I'm not seeing any results in Google searches using the above suggestions. I thought there was a way in Google Analytics to view the link of the referring page, but I can't find it.

            You'll find it in Google's Webmasters Tool
            Go to search traffic - links to your site

            Do you have a Webmaster acc??

              I do and just tried that. It has some good information, but nothing about the Hub I'm talking about.

                It's probably not crawled yet. You'll probably see it on Monday.
                Google updates the info every week.
