It shows traffic for a page over a chosen length of time, but how about page ranking for a specific keyword or phrase?
If not, is there any other way of examining ranking trends? Increases or decreases of traffic don't of course necessarily mean that ranking has changed.
Have you looked at Google Trends? This gives you a basic idea of how various topics are doing over a period of time, which can help you to know how what you are writing about fits in.
Unfortunately, Google Search Console, which is no longer available to HubPages, is the best way to track ranking trends for keywords and pages over time.
A handful of keywords is available under Acquisition / All Traffic / Channels. They actually just show the number of page views for certain keywords. Again unfortunately, Google blocks most of the keywords in that report.
AdWords has been a mess in the past, but it might be straightened out these days. I don't know.
That is an interesting point to consider. I would define "page over a chosen length of time" and "ranking trends."
Yup as promisem says, Google webmaster tools is the best way to do this. There are other ways and software that track ranking which cost you quite a bit each month. You could look up traffic travis. I used to use it when we had subdomains. See if you could maybe get it to work for individual URLs. I know that the free version allows you to use just one site and track certain keywords. So you could track just dengarden for the keyword guide to hose fittings for instance.

Analytics tells me that I suddenly started getting traffic from something called the Maven Coalition. Since I don't have a website on Maven, are my hubs being advertised there? How can I figure out where specifically on Maven this traffic is coming from?

This drop in traffic seems to have affected the majority of us who transitioned here from Squidoo. After we updated our articles are traffic virtually stopped dead. The question is why? Was our redirect from Squidoo killed with the update? What the heck happened? Please try to figure out why the...
