What is Maven Coalition?

    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?

      Maven owns Hubpages now, they send traffic our way.

        I understand that, but Maven has owned HP for a while now, whereas I have suddenly been getting traffic only since last week.  I'd like to see where on the site the traffic is coming from, but I can't find it.  I'm asking for help in finding the links/ads for my hubs on Maven.

    It is likely to be diffuse.  A while back most hubs were sending traffic to Maven via the links for more information.  It was said at the time they would also be doing it the other way around.

      Thanks!  I was hoping I could actually see the links or ads that are generating the traffic.  It would be nice to see what kinds of articles on Maven that the links or ads for my hubs are appearing on.

        I would think that is impossible as it may be dynamic. Just like how we have related hubs here. The hubs are not static and the hubs listed under related/popular keep changing.

    My Maven traffic seems to have started on 3rd October, with about half a dozen visits per day.
    Does anyone know how to change the vertical scale in GA? It's impossible to plot trends from one source if the total views trace is much larger.

      Just go to Acquisiton > All Traffic > Source Medium and click on maven-coalition / hubpages to see the trend of traffic from this particular source.

        Thanks. That's much simpler. I was going through Behavior > Site Content > All pages and changing the primary dimension which was sort of convoluted.

          Yeah, this stuff can be weird. It's not the most organized system out there.

            I still have to use the search panel though to isolate a source and remove the total views trace. A scale adjust would also be useful for zooming.

              It would.

        Interesting.  I didn't even know I was getting any traffic from Maven or that you could check for it.  Thanks.

        Does the maven-coalition/hubpages link refer to all direct niche site traffic as well as any possible maven.io traffic? Has anyone even seen hp work on Maven yet? I haven't looked recently, but still have not found anything on their articles. I'm assuming maven-coalition could also refer to their search bar, although wouldn't the traffic be coming from the niche site ultimately, since you cannot get to specific articles from the Maven search bar?

        I was looking through analytics today and it is showing 25 users for maven-coalition/hubpages, but only 1 viewer for each delishably & owlcation/referral. I do not have any other niche sites/direct, which makes me wonder if that's what maven-coalition/hubpages is for. Or is that what the (direct)/(none) link refers to? Not sure what that means.

        I also have no other views direct or referral for any of the other niche sites I'm on. Which is weird to me as the one article on wehavekids that I looked at (I have several) is showing 55 views for the whole month of November from that niche. When I switch the analytics time frame to show all of November, Owlcation and Delishably are still the only niche sites that come up.

        I know I received more views than one from owlcation as I have an article there that gets a decent amount of daily traffic. Most comes from Google, but I know a small chunk comes from Owlcation too (based on what I can see through hp's traffic sources). Although 25 still seems off if it does include all the direct niche site traffic. I would have expected it to be more, but maybe that week was not a good week for traffic via the niche sites...

        I'm still trying to figure my way around Google analytics after 7 years, and I feel like most of the time I'm at a loss when I look at all the data. Can we not compare hp's data to Google analytics? I would have thought the data should be similar.

          if you want to compare you need to compare on the same time frame that HP uses.

          Direct is through a bookmark or when someone enters the URL directly into the search bar or when GA cannot determine the source.

          Niche sites show up under their own name.

          I would say any website with themaven.net/ in the URL shows as the maven coalition.

            Thanks for the clarification, much appreciated! smile

            Wonder why I couldn't get wehavekids to show up. Even when I went to the whole month of November for hp and google analytics Delishably and Owlcation were still showing under 5 viewers and wehavekids wasn't listed at all on Google analytics for all of November.

              I'm confused now too. My dengarden views are just 5 for November. This is not true though. Maybe when someone lands on dengarden and then goes to your article it shows as direct unless they head to your dengarden article from say Owlcation. But HP tracks these direct visits (GA) as visits from dengarden. I got an idea for an experiment, but gonna eat something first.

                Did an experiment in incognito mode and checked my Real time analytics. What I said above stands. Not sure about HP, but GA treats visits from within the niche site as direct visits.

    Where can I find: "Just go to Acquisiton > All Traffic > Source Medium and click on maven-coalition / hubpages to see the trend of traffic from this particular source"?

      Once you login to Google Analytics and pick hubpages, you will see these options on the left.
