    What percentage of your views come from outside HubPages (and how long have you been on HP)?

    About 25% of my views come from Hubpages. I have been here about 6 weeks. But I use Twitter and other sources to promote my hubs and that makes a big difference.

    I am with hubpages for 3 year's now. More than 80% of my hubs traffic comes from Google search all over the world.
    Traffic from Search Engines 31,951.00 (85.36%) for Jan/2011. You can find the complete stats in the picture.
    Google keywords is the secret if that is what you are curious about the hubs traffic. Google keywords tool can help you to increase your hubs traffic. Good luck

    Only 8.5% of my pageviews comes from hubpages.
    85.6% comes from search engines and the rest from my backlinks in twitter, stumbleupon etc

    Hi Mike, I asked a similar question sometime ago, and got similar response as you have got. For established hubbers, the most prominent traffic source is search engines. however for newbies like me, most of my traffic is from Hubpages. I have been here three weeks now. Hope this helps.

    Thanks for the great answers, looks like most of you long-timers (Mr.Nice, Ultimate Hubber, Christoss) are seeing view rates of 80-90 percent from outside HubPages -- that is impressive and encouraging, I hope I can get there with time and a lot more content. @Colibri, I think that's a pretty darn impressive view rate for only being on HP 6 weeks!; @Vaiebhav, I have a low view rate from the outside world as well after about 3 wks on HP, which doesn't really alarm me, but I hope it slowly improves so I can stay encouraged . . . looks like only time will tell whether or not I'm properly optimizing my hubs

    100 percent from referring sites. 8 countries so far: United States, Canada, Germany, Spain, Australia, Japan, Brazil, China. Some cities are: New York City, New York; San Francisco, Ca.; Pelato, Brazil; Wuhan, China. 1105 ever views on my 1 unpublished hub on hubpages. I have been here for 7 months and I earned my first 1 cent from google adsense on December 28, 2010 A.D. I am looking forward to seeing how much I earned on January 2011 A.D. Referring sites are real to get traffic for your hub which is why I get all of my traffic 100 percent from referring sites. I started on hubpages June 3, 2010 and 2 months later on August 2010 I got 100 percent for my 1 article that they found on the internet which my 1 article is unpublished on hubpages. They keep on coming back for my 1 article which is of excellent quality and 1 of a kind unique model.I have done absolutely nothing else to get my article out there except to write it and set it free on the internet and it only took 2 months for the referring sites to found my 1 article. It is the miracle and 1 hit wonder article.

    I'm pretty new to hub pages so I have a really dumb question.  How do you know where your traffic comes from.  (not that my traffic is really anything to get excited about.

    7.5% of my traffic comes from within Hubpages, and nearly everything else is organic traffic through the search engines. Of the search engines, the vast majority of hits come from Google, and then a few percentage points from Yahoo. My backlink time is often spent on my sites, so very little comes through direct links. I have been on Hubpages for three years, and I suspect most of my 8,800 internal hits came from the first year.

    @Mike B, click on the "my account" tab, then near the top of the page there are a bunch of different options, including "traffic sources"
