    Question about privacy and hub stats?

    When I look at the stats for one of my hubs, I'll see some sources, like Hubpages and Google. And that's useful info. However I'll also see page views from the sub-domains of individual Hubbers. What's up with that?

    Do the stats in question arise because a Hubpages author has linked to one of my articles, and one of their readers has clicked on that link? If so, I'd be seeing the sub-domain of the linker, rather than that of the reader. And that's Jake with me.

    Do I have a reasonable expectation of privacy when I'm reading the hubs of others?

    When you see the subdomain of another hubber, that means they visit your hu
    bs more often.

    On your articles pages there is a box at the bottom with other people's articles that are similar to yours and sometimes they are other Hubber's articles. If a person clicks on that link it will show up on their stats as coming from your page.

    I'd like to thank Pamela N Red and A.A. Zavala for answering my question. I'm more comfortable with that aspect of the hub stats now.
