One of my hubs has been visited 431 times by another hubber, way too many times if you ask me. I'm suspicious but don't want to imply that something sinister is going on. It might be that they love my hub and can't stop a fatal attraction? Should I just ignore the stat?
Well they must be hopeless at copying it, if that's what they're there for...
As Eric mentions, usually this happens because visitors are coming to your Hub from that person's subdomain, meaning they have found you in the Related Hubs section of one of that person's Hubs. It's nothing to be worried about (and actually kind of a nice perk of Related Hubs).
Here's a true story from a couple years ago...
A Hubber had one of their hubs go viral.
All 6 hubs plastered underneath it were mine. I kid you not!
My traffic skyrocketed. Day after day after day. True nirvana.
Then the Hubber that had the viral hub got into an argument with HP and deleted the hub while still viral!
Banged my head on the table for a couple days over that.
Thanks for the reply. I'm reassured that there are no underhand tactics involved!!
your hub must be gone viral by someone, check out who did that.
What makes you think a specific Hubber is visiting your Hubs? If you are seeing 400+ visits from another Hubber's subdomain it simply means visitors (not the Hubber) are coming from one or more of their Hubs to one or more of yours. Most likely you write on the same subject and your Hub(s) are appearing at the bottom of the theirs in the "Related Hubs" section. Less likely but also possible is that they have intentionally linked from one of their Hubs to one of yours.
Either way it is nothing to be concerned about. :-)
Yep, agreed. Visitors are landing on their Hub and then seeing yours and clicking through.
Thank you. Good thinking, this could be the reason. All's well that ends well I guess. I just haven't seen anything like it on other hub stats.
Exactly, I have noticed this too. People are just clicking on your hub from other related hubs.

In light of the recent barrage of "alleged" copyright violations from sites that use my content without my permission, I'm wondering why one particular hubber has visited one of my hubs over 600 times. I'm flattered by the attention, although, I do not see any comments from this person....

I did a little experiment with opting into the EC program for three months. To begin with,last year one of my better performing hubs become Editor's Choice. That hub was getting an average of 20o+ views per day, peak. The day after being selected as EC, the views dropped to zero. I watched it for a...

So I'm replying to a comment on my hub and upon scrolling through the hub (I always check for errors or how I can improve), I see the related hubs section. There are five hubs there including one of mine. What immediately got my attention is that the other four hubs has "editors choice"...

I've had links to my own related hubs snipped on several occasions (mostly blatant lists at the end of a hub), but some links have been left in place after several snips. So is it acceptable to include a link to a hub which may be very relevant to the specific content in a section of a hub, if it...
