    Have you seen more than 5 stars in your Hub metrics under the Incoming Links field?

      Each hub has some hub metrics: a rough and ready guide to how that  individual hub is doing.

      The hub metrics is un likely to be populated until it's been live for at least a month.

      Once it's been going, go to:
      My Account
      Click on the Hub You're Interested In (NOT the edit button)
      At the top, between EDIT and DELETE is a tab STATS
      Click STATS

      You will see the traffic for that individual hub.

      See the tabs just above that graph, there's one HUB METRICS
      Click that.

      You'll now see:

      Word Count: it tells you how many words are in your hub

      Revenue Potential: between 1 and 5 dollar signs. This is just a guess at how profitable your hub might be.  $$$$$ indicates that it's likely to be more profitable for you (adsense income) than a hub with just $

      Incoming Links: This will be an indicator of how many inbound links that hub has

      View Duration: How long people stay on your hub on average.  If it's not long enough then it's either not what they expected, or looks confusing/a mess/too short. 

      Under that is a chart that shows the traffic for that individual hub.

      Hope that helps.
