    Hello fellow Hubbers, I have a questions that I hope you guys and gals can help me with.  I am still very new to hubpages and am playing around with all of the bells and whistles.  I seen a sudden hike in page views on one particular hub, 730 in one day.  This may not be much to a lot of you pros but this was very inspiring to me, so I started to dig around to see where they were coming from in Google Analytics.  I see that there were many referrals from Facebook.  What I would like to know is the context in which the hub is getting referred.  Is it possible for me to go directly to the context in the source of my referral and see it with my own eyes?

    Apparently the hub was shared on Facebook, and views came from there.

    I know that it was shared on Facebook but was wanting to see the share and the page source itself.

    There is no way to find that information as far as I know.

    Thank you so much, my number actually improved for the daily visit once i went to bed and ended with 790 views.  This was very inspiring to me and I hope I can write some more hubs with that type of success!

    I looked at your profile page and guessed which hub you were talking about. So I tried this combo and the following worked.

    In Google type
    "Title of your hub"
    replace "Title of your hub" with the actual title and keep it in the quotes - you should see the post that you are getting all those referrals from
