    I was curious about a stat on my latest hub...I have a quiz on it and when I look at the statistics it says that it has been taken 0 times on HubPages and 6 times on other sites.  Not quite sure what that means, did someone put the widget elsewhere, did someone go to the hub & take the quiz from the link I put on facebook or something else?

    Do I get credit for a view if the quiz is taken on another site?

    Thanks in advance for any insight.

      I took it when I read your Hub this morning on HubPages. Did you look at the quiz capsule in edit mode to see whether there are any links, or such, sending it elsewhere?

        I set it up the normal way.  Currently it shows 0 people taking it from hubpages and 22 from other sites.  Curious.

      I have a few quizzes and they all show similar to yours. One shows it was taken 3 times on HubPages and over 150 times on other site(s). The last time I saw this topic come up, the explanation was that someone clicks 'get this widget' under your quiz, copies the code provided onto their own site or blog, and your quiz will be available for anyone to take on that site. It's only embedded on their site (like youtube videos, I guess) not actually on their site - anyone taking the quiz on that site is automatically fed the information from your hub.

      Apparently (from a previous question) we get the credit from them viewing the quiz (like a page view). What I don't understand is how. The person taking the quiz on the other site doesn't get to see the ads on our page, so I don't see how we can be credited for any ad impressions from them taking our quiz.

          I tried it with one of mine and got,

          400. That's an error.

      I figured out some time ago that "other sites" includes your HP subdomain.  In fact, your HP subdomain is probably the only "other site" that views are coming from.  Kind of confusing, I agree.

        Ah that explains it calculus-geometry.  Thanks.  Must be the way they have to set it up.
