How can you track where your hub traffic is coming from?
I have started to get a fair bit of traffic on my hubs over the last week or so, and I would like to find out if it is all from other Hubbers or if I am actually receiving hits from Google search results. Is this possible? And if so, can I find out the Google search terms?
Yes, to both. Sign up with Google Analytics and you will know that and much, much more.
Google's Webmaster tools also gives you a lot of useful data. Most of us use both.
(and Traffic Sources here also tells you as does the "stats" button on your hubs)
Go to any hub that you are interested in, and hit "stats" at the top of it - this allows you, the author - to find out what search terms have landed a search engine user on your hub.
It also tells you which search engines brought you traffic, and how much of it, and gives the keywords used to find your hub.
Typically, it takes a day or three after search engine traffic starts finding a hub before Hubpages stats will tell you what keywords brought a visitor there.
You should also sign up for Google analytics - but all your basic info is available right here on Hubpages.
