    I have hubs, two, three, four, and five years old, and instead of giving me the search data, they say " Still Collecting Data" This is even on featured hubs. When will the data collecting be completed?

      If a hub doesn't get very much traffic, there isn't really any data to show, so you will get that message.

        Well that's not the case. I get a lot of traffic to them,. and to all of my hubs really

        FYI-Not all high traffic hubs have search terms/data....because people can come to your hub without searching for your subject matter. They can come through links on other sites. or by searching through Hubpages without typing in search words, etc.All you would have in cases like this is "traffic sources", but no search terms/data

        When a hub isn't getting much traffic, it can't be featured due to lack of  "Engagement",
        But my hubs are featured..so..

          What is your definition of "a lot"?  It may still not be enough to provide meaningful data.  I have a few like that.

            That particular one I am speaking of is kind of low with 28,000 hits,
            but I have a couple with around 10,000 that has collected enough data to give the information in search terms

              I'd say what is happening is that the ones with 10,000 hits are getting most of their visits from just a few search terms, whereas the ones with 28,000 hits are getting a few visits each from many search terms.   Search terms won't appear on the report unless they are being used a lot.

                Everything else on my other hubs is working fine, except for a couple of them

          I think you answered your own question.  If the majority of your traffic comes from other sources - social networking sources, etc. - and there is limited search traffic, then you are unlikely to have enough data for the system to come up with search terms.

      Traffic source information used to be available from Google in far more detail, but that information is now very limited and as such traffic sources has limited utility as compared to the past.

      There is also an issue currently affecting traffic sources, so it could be related to that as well.
      You can find that forum here.

        Thank you Matthew
        I just thought I would ask about it, but it is of no real concern

        Question: We use to be able to add keywords, but I no longer see this option
        Does it still exist ? Does the system generate them, or does Google see your title, and article text as keywords?

          Most search engines will determine the important keywords from your content, so manually adding keywords is not necessary.

    If you have less than 10,000 visits to a Hub per day, it's extremely low volume in the overall greater scheme of web traffic.  Most people I know who run "successful" small websites get over 500,000 unique visits or more per month.

    And just because HubPages can detect the visitor doesn't mean they got any other meaningful info about the visit.

      But I didn't say the hub had under 10,000
      So how does that apply to me ?

      I just read what you wrote again
      My hub isn't a website, and yes my hub is getting less than 10,000 hits a day, way less, as I am sure some of yours are too. please...

      I only have Amazon, and I don't have ads on all of my hubs
      I write the hubs because I feel I have something worth saying, not to make money, so less then 500 hits a day is fine with me.
      I just wanted to know when my hubs (4) of them will stop collecting data.

      I've moved on now, but thanks anyway

        It just means those Hubs are not getting enough search engine traffic on consistent keywords.   As MT says, that could be because many people are reaching your Hub through personal recommendations, word of mouth or sites like Facebook rather than Google.  Or it could mean that your Hub is being found in a wide variety of searches, rather than coming up consistently for certain keywords.
