Why is mturk showing as a traffic source to one of my popular hubs?
I have never seen mturk (Amazon's Mechanical Turk) show up as a traffic source for a hub previously and this particular hub has several visits yesterday from there. Wondering why that might be? Seems strange. It wasn't unfeatured or anything like that and put back through QAP it's been the same since I published it earlier this year.
At amazon mechanical turk you can find a workforce to get results on your tasks. Or, you can work there and get paid.
I cannot imagine why some people at mechanical turk visited your post. Probably a teaching lesson and you were picked as an example.
I noticed on at least one of my hubs that there were views from mturk, not just one view. I wish I could remember which one I saw that on for sure. It made me wonder.
I have a currently unfeatured hub that has 2 mturk hits and nothing else. I think it has something to do with the amazon ad code contacting a robot and the robot taking statistical data of the pages the products were found on. This could be a tracking for amazon to update its code forcing people to only put relevant products on relevant pages. It might also be a way for them to get data to show others that they aren't using the amazon affiliate code to its full potential. There is lots of ways the data would be of use for amazon if it did have its own bot make stops when products are updated or refreshed.
Actually, Hub Pages, outsources some of their QAP Process to workers at Mechanical Turk. http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/109479
I was curious about this also but just kind of wrote it off. All of my Hubs are featured, yet they all have the mturk visit. Maybe if you created this question in the forums, someone from HP will give an answer.
Thanks seems Matthew did reply. Didn't think my hub was in QAP, but ok!
Btw, how is your viral hub doing? Is it still riding high?
It has come back down, but still higher daily views than it had before, so I'll take it. It has spurts where it gets shared then goes down, then back up.
Part of the QAP uses Mturk, so you are likely seeing those views.

Why are other hubbers profiles showing up in my traffic source?I was just playing around in the "My Account" section of Hubpages. I thought I would take a look at the "traffic sources" for my hubs. I noticed something that I've never seen before, all these links that I don't...

Hope this is the right forum. When I go to stats on one of my Hubs, it shows number of views but doesn't show traffic source. I'm using Windows 8 and the Firefox browser. Here's a screenshot.

I passed the qualification test for rating hubs (obtained a 92% score and received the $5 bonus), but when I returned to Mechanical Turk to actually rate hubs, the HIT states I am not qualified. I am posting a screenshot of the page.The qualification requires a score of "30" and I have a...

Analytics tells me that I suddenly started getting traffic from something called the Maven Coalition. Since I don't have a website on Maven, are my hubs being advertised there? How can I figure out where specifically on Maven this traffic is coming from?
