Is this possible, or do I need some sort of plugin? My impressions seems to be about 65% to 70% of pageviews (of the 60% share of pages that display my ads), so I want to see which hubs could be improved to retain readers.
You are asking two different things.
First: People using ad blocks don't count towards impressions. I have quite similar stats as you. My impressions are typically 40% of the pageviews (of the 100% share that is).
Analytics: Go to Behaviour > Site Content > All Pages. Here you can see the time spent on your page. Don't consider this as the holy grail, as far as I know, it is only possible to calculate time spent if the person clicks on and goes to another page on the website the hub is placed on. But looking at my own stats this is a really good indicator.
HP has their own star system where they show the amount of time spent on page. If you look at stats when you are viewing a hub.
These two together should give you a clear indication of which pages are retaining readers and which are not. All mine show 5 starts on the HP system other than one which shows 4 stars. This particular hub has an average viewer duration of a little over 2 minutes for the past month according to analytics. But that's more than enough time to read this hub, so I'm happy with this result.
Thanks Brandon. I did that and the average time spent on a page seems to range from 5 to 7 minutes for my top 10 hubs with the highest traffic over a period of two months, which I think is a lot higher than it used to be.
I find the information interesting. I like the keywords listed from searches.
Before, I'd go to referral but no others. Now, I see there is quite a bit of information, which is interesting.

I've been hearing lots of positive posts from lensmasters whose lenses transferred to HP recently that their hubs are getting a lot more "traffic" than previously as Squidoo lenses.I too have noticed that my "traffic" is rising and I am hoping that it will be sustained thanks to...

The stats have frozen again, and have not been updated for 12 hours (heading for the weekend). Earlier in the week they were stuck for 3 days. That means that the stats are only OK, twice a week - very disappointing! It has been getting worse lately. Please fix this HP staff. Thanks.

I have followed instructions on both HP and GA itself but when I get to the place where the upgrade should be, it's not there.I see what it is supposed to look like. Just can't figure out why my option to upgrade isn't there. Anyone that has insight is welcome to give me some pointers.
