How to determine what sites are linking to my Hubs?
If there is a spike in traffic, there is usually a link to my Hub added from somewhere? How can I determine from where?
I don't know but am going to follow this question because I'm interested in the answer.
In my opinion the best way to track your hub traffic is through Google Analytics.
Google Analytics is free and easy to set up. If you don't have an account now, I would reccommend your sign up soon.
Google Analytics when added to HubPages will eventually tell you where your hubs are being viewed around the world, even down to particular ISP regions, these roughly equate to the largest towns.
You can also receive details as to where viewers came from in relation to websites. That will tell you where a link appeared.
If you don't want to use Google Analytics, there is a quick way to check on HubPages itslef.
Go to the Hub you want to know about.
Click on stats, just above your text.
This opens a basic statistics form, you can see which websites are sending traffic and a number of views for day, week, month and all time. This tab also, after several weeks offers possible keywords for a hub and also a word count and approximation of cash income from advertising.
More basic than Google Analytics but still useful in the short term.
While, as Bretsuke says, Google analytics is valuable and tell you where visitors are coming from, Google WebMaster Tools will provide an actual list of incoming links to your website. WMT also offers many other tools for analyzing your hubs and performance and is well worth the little effort to set up.
If you have the Google toolbar, it has a page rank box for Google. If you right click, some backlinks should be listed. The page rank box is a small rectangular box in the middle of the toolbar.
You can also see where your traffic is coming from under My Account > Traffic Sources. This doesn't tell you all your links, but it'll give you an idea of which ones are giving you referral traffic. Links that aren't giving you referral traffic might be giving you some SEO juice, but not much else (granted SEO is important).

When I first signed up with GA I used hubpages.com Later I added my subdomain address. However, my account is set up with property name hubpages.com and default URL my subdomain. I believe this is incorrect. Thus Webmaster Tools are saying that my sites are not verified. What do I need to do?...

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...

I am still pretty much on square one when it comes to backlinking.Other than facebook I have no other sites to really share my hubs on, which makes it hard. I think I'm going to make more hubs and figure out backlinking when I can.How hard was backlinking for you when you first started?

Is there a way within Hub Pages to see which articles are only receiving Hub traffic? I try to beef up the low performing Hubs but it would help to know which Hubs have no outside traffic. Or is the score of the Hub sufficient to monitor the lack of Google traffic?
