I don't understand what this is because I dont send emails from a google email address? yet I have so many views from here?
When you publish a hub it sends a message to your subscribers (followers) if they have chosen to be notified.
Someone must have got a notification email via their gmail account, and clicked on the link.
Aw thanks for your reply, I was just curious, I want to know what everything mean. I guess I thought that would of been classed as internal(hubpages) nice to know my subscribers are interested then
Yep, linked to through e-mail!
Either it isa follower or someone thought your site was worth sending to someone else, either way it's good!
Sorry for going a slightly different direction... still stats related though...
My stats show a few page views images.google.com
Am I understanding this correctly -- Is it the actual name of the image that Google is using?
I almost never use captions with my graphics. Should I be naming my files with key words before I upload them?
I'm just not sure if the pics are showing in Google images because they are from a page that uses the keywords, or if it is the name of the file itself.
I didn't know this either, thanks for finding out for me too.
glad you asked the question. I had wondered also and now we all know.
I have received a few hits from google mail.
Images.google.com is from the google images search engine, that means that some of the photos you have tagged are appearing in Google Images Search.
when you say tag the image-- are you tagging the file name as a keyword?
I almost understand....
Tags can mean several things, in this case however I am refering to the attributes of a picture. Hubpages makes it easy, if you create a picture you can give it a description. This, and the text around it, with a few other factors are those which affect your search rankings on Google Image Search.

I've noticed something odd about the view stats for one of my hubs. It ranks 2nd in Google search for the relevant keyword, just behind the Wikipedia article on the subject. It's getting more than 1600 views a month,...

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...

Instead of being addicted to the Stats page and getting frustrated by its inefficiency, I suggest we get rid of hub scores and hubber scores and stats. Just keep us informed on a daily basis of earnings. This would free...

I saw where this issue has been addressed in the past and supposedly corrected. But for many weeks now, especially toward the end of the week and weekends, my HubPages stats will not update for hours and sometimes even...
