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 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.
Thanks chasmac. I will check out that other forum post. I am still confused about how it workds, but glad I get credit for the views.
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.

Can anyone explain if there is a requirement or at least an incentive somewhere somehow that would force or cause Hubpages to keep being active in its current form for many many years to come? The reason I ask is that I went through writing a lot of articles and then promoting eHow (not just my...

There's a thread currently active about marketing and getting people to our hubs... and that sparked a thought.Would it be possible to set up code and allow an author to mirror a hub on another site of ours?I like Hubpages and want to keep my articles here, but at the same time I've got nearly 20...

I've been approached by a number of specialized sites regarding a number of my articles on Guitar product reviews. Obviously I was quite proud and humbled to be even considered to write content for these sites, some of which are huge, but all I'm getting in return is a back-link to my hubpages...

I constantly see people who threaten to leave HP because they don't like the limitations here. Unless you are a professional writer who does this for a living, I think you should be careful about doing this and here's why.While you may get more views someplace else, this does not necessarily...

The focus of HP has turned to the niche sites. Editing services will only be used on hubs being considered for the several new niche domains for the foreseeable future. The niche topics chosen for the next year or so seem to be pets, tattoos, piercings, beauty, food, and beverage. If we don't write...
