    I can't remember what happened with previous hubs, but is this normal?

      I don't know about zero, but single digits is common, yes.

    I think if your hub is about purple pigeon poop, or some other term that is not searched for very often, you will not be seeing much or any traffic.
    I have a artilce that was published about 20 days ago, has the snippet and the top spot on Google, but still only has 25 hits from Google since publishing. Is it a fluke? I do not think so. It may have more traffic in the summer but I just do not think that many people are interested in it so there will not be much.
    If you look at your "referrers" you should have at least one page view Google, when the article was indexed. Do you have that at least?

      Actually I have one organic view from about a week ago that I saw coming in on GA real time.

    Dr Mark.  Your reference to one page view from Google  Does that mean that when a new article is listed on Google, that is counted as a view?

      I am pretty sure that the view from Google is when your article is listed on their site. If you have a new article and their is no view from Google that is cause for concern. Unfortunately, I do not think there is anything you can do about it. In the past you could send a URL to Google and ask them to index it, but it is my understanding that they have done away with that page.

        Yes, you can only request indexing if you have access to Search Console of the website in question.

    Shucks.  I was thinking I had some readers come in from google.  But it looks like almost all of my google traffic is just getting the hub listed.
