I noticed my hub on toddler toys being found in Google already but I'm curious if and how I discover which keywords and phrases I'm being found for? It just has a total found.
If you set up an analytics account and associate it with HubPages you can get a lot more data about how people are finding your hubs.
Sign up here: http://www.google.com/analytics/

We don't have any easy guide to signing up for analytics set up yet, so just post back here if you have any questions or problems.
I don't like to self-promote, but I'm going to anyway as I think I have just the information you need! I have written a hub on setting up and using Google Analytics:
Google Analytics is great for checking out which keywords and phrases people are using to find your hub, amongst other things.
Hope this helps!
That's not self promotion, that's a way to impart the information without having to reprint it word for word.
I found your hub extremely helpful. There were a few hubs here dealing with Analytics, and yours and one other explained simply and easily how to set it up and get going.
O, okay! I do use analytics for my domains, but didn't know I could use it on a Hub page. This might get kinda sticky if and when I build lots of hubs. I wish it was just on the hub page itself. LOL
Having lots of hubs shouldn't cause a problem with analytics. The tracking data fyour hubs overall will be summarized under your hubpages profile in Google Analytics. Each hub is treated just like a page of a web site, so you can click through to get more detailed reports, such as keywords, on an individual hub if you choose.
You will probably find it very straightforward to set up if you're already using analytics for other domains - just add a new website profile in Google Analytics, using your hubpages profile address.
Am I the only one who doesn't understand a word of all this?
I feel silly... I'll better go and have a look at Caspar's hub page to see if I come out any wiser.
I didn't know anything about Google Analytics but was able to set it up after this info from Paul Deeds:
There's also a video showing you how to do so.
When you learnt the basics, something that is usefull is to know how to exclude your own IP address, I will update the article when I will feel like doing so
You can check the content page on analytics and then check out keywords for each page.

I love to see what people were looking for when they found my hubs, it helps me choosing new titles and see which questions I left unanswered.I was hoping to see keywords under Traffic Sources, but I have to click on each hub and then stats, and then keywords.... quite a long process to check them...

Hello. I have some questions regarding Google Analytics and Webmaster tools. Any help is greatly appreciated. When I checked my webmaster tools, I saw a lot of URL errors, a 404 crawl error because apparently "Googlebot couldn't crawl this URL because it points to a non-existent page"....

I have a topic that I researched in Google keyword tool.There were thre columns- Competition,Global Search and Local Search. WhatI realize from reading other hubbers is that traffic and clicks depend on 'evergreen' topics,knowledge, interest,luck,precise keywords for search engines,satisfying needs...

It would be very useful to those of us who work hard to rank well for keywords to be able to see exactly which keywords are working on a daily, weekly, monthly and overall basis.A simple listing of keywords and the number of hits for each keyword phrase would be awesome! I can even supply some...

I know there have been a lot of changes and I really appreciate that. I also am looking forward to the new hub layout...but...with disappointment.In any business, one must first make their assessment about what works and what doesn't. The things that don't work, you either fix them or get rid of...
