    For the last 30 days, my results match Maddie's.

    For "ever," Bing is displaced by a site for which I write.

      Yes, those are my top sources for the past 30 days as well.

    Google (by far the biggest)
    Yahoo (way behind Google)
    Direct/None (I don't even know what this is, could this be internal traffic from hubpages)

    I have still recieved pretty much no Bing traffic.... I guess that Bing doesnt like me!

      Bing takes it time. It likes ranking older pages higher in SERPS. If you want traffic from Bing, you can read my hub on ranking high in Bing.

    Google, yahoo and Facebook, but I'm still fairly new here, so I imagine more sources will come my way. Hopefully, some of my backlinks will kick in soon.

    Google UK

    Hubpages is my real number 3, but figured I'd stick with outside sources

    Bing is number 10 and climbing for sure.

    Here's a similar thread. http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/11212

    wesleycoxposted 9 years ago

    Yahoo, google, digg

    How old does a hub need to be before bing picks it up?

    As far as Bing goes, try submitting the Hub directly to Bing.
    You can do that with Yahoo and Google as well.

    Google will generate the most revenue for you if learn the secrets of search engine marketing and optimization.

    Yahoo and Bing are good but their combine percentages and search engine revenue can't even top Google.
    So stick with Google.

    Hey, people say google, yahoo, and bing are the three top sources to drive traffic to whatever you are promoting, but it takes alot work to understand how the search engines operate.

    If you dont have much experience in driving traffic from search engine, i recommend youtube, twitter, and myspace, because they bring in millions traffic.

    In order to drive traffic from social networking sites, you have to build relationships with your customers and gain their trust and help them in their problems. You help them they will help you. It's all alot helping each other out. Am I right?

    Hope this information was helpful.

    Please check out my hub for feedback.

    Stupid question maybe ? how do i get traffic from yahoo?

    1. Drew Breezzy profile image68
      Drew Breezzyposted 9 years agoin reply to this

      People using yahoo search using a word related to your hub. The higher your hub is ranked on the page the better chance they have on clicking on it.

        jabyrd82posted 9 years agoin reply to this

        OH ok so it just matters what they are searching through!! right? yahoo google or whatever!!

          Drew Breezzyposted 9 years agoin reply to this


          It would probably benefit you to have more hubs. It took a while before I started receiving traffic from search engines. Now this week my google views are more than hubpages and so are yahoo. It just takes time.

  27. emievil profile image75
    emievilposted 9 years ago

    Hubpages is number one for me. yahoo.com is number two then google (local) and google.com. Google (local) and google.com are like only one third of my traffic from yahoo - which I can see from this thread is not quite that common. Anybody can tell me why my traffic source seems to be different from the others?

    I'm seeing traffic also from other google sites, gmail and yahoo mail, also from facebook. smile

    Definately Google, Yahoo and Hubpages.  No hits at all showing in traffic list from Bing. Then there is all the other googles like mx,uk,au,ca.
    My 5th best is Reddit. I was on my profile on reddit just a little while ago and saw my Mexican Italian Casserole Hub was 4th on the "Hot" list in cooking! That explains all the hits I have received since I published this hub this afternoon. Guess cooking is a hot topic there.
