Can google analytics show me where my traffic sources come from?
I want to know where did all my traffic sources come from. I already have included hubpages in google analytics but I still couldn't see the sources...Please teach me how to use google analytics
Yes Google Analytic s will tell you the sources of your traffic. It will tell you what key words were used in which search engine to get to your page. It will tell you what nation the browsers were in and lots more statistics. First link your hub pages account with your Google analytic s if you have not done so already. And then log onto your Google analytic s account. From there, once you have logged on if you click on each of the tabs down the left hand side of the scree the tabs as you click on them will give you lots of data and useful information about views, language, devices, geographical information and more.
If you are struggling to understand Google Analytic s use the Hub Pages learning center which you can access by going to the bottom of the page and clicking on Learning Center
When you are logged into your Google Analytics, click the "Standard Reporting" tab on top.
Then click "Traffic Sources" in the left-hand column to open more options. From there you can click "Sources -> All Traffic" to see where your traffic is coming from.
I suggest you also click "Overview" - which will show you the keywords people use to get to your pages.
Another useful (and new) Analytics tool that gives you the information is the real time view...
Click the "Home" tab on top and then click "Real-time -> Overview".
You will be able to watch visitors as they read your hubs and click from one hub to another. This is a great tool for observing how long people actually stay on each page. It also shows what keywords each live visitor used to get to your hub and where they came from.
It's helpful to block your own IP address so you don't end up watching yourself. You do that with the filters under the "admin" tab.
Yes.. In analytic there is one option Traffic Sources > Sources > Referrals
here you will see the data coming from your referral URL's
Within Google Analytics if you go to Demographics on the left hand side, then location and then click on visits you get a map of the world and if you scroll down a little it will show you all the countries that people have come to your website from.
I am still learning the ropes myself on this site but hope this helps. All the best
Many users never take advantage of Google Analytics' many features, but learning a little about them can dramatically increase the useful information you learn about your site's traffic. read more

I just got a nice 300% boost in traffic on one of my articles. I'd like to find out whether that came from a specific link. How do I do that? If I go onto "Traffic Sources" it just has a list of search engines.

I see that there are 4 traffic sources. Search Engines, Direct traffic, referring sites, and other.Does direct traffic mean from hubpages? And referring sites? I have some for that..

I'm pretty new around here. When I look at my traffic sources sometimes it says Google, which sounds really cool, like as if people are finding my hubs from a Google search. However none of my hubs are anywhere near the first page of search results, or anywhere the second or third page for that...

Ever since the switch to subdomains, I have seen specific subdomain names listed on the traffic stats for individual Hubs; and on the Traffic Sources Page, the numbers for HubPages have seemed to decline (understandably). Recently, I have seen higher numbers for HubPages.com, and I don't...

My traffic sources is showing Hubpages, Google, Yahoo, etc but does not show my web site, which I am sure is active and bouncing visitors back to my articles on Hubpages. Any idea why it does not show up?
