    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.

    Hi Peach,

    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
