How do I know which traffic comes directly from Google searches? My traffic sources are HubPages, discover HubPages, Reddit, Facebook, and Quora (I did some promoting, that is why I have social media there as well). I have over 1000 views so some must be from Google, am I right?
My biggest traffic source, for now, is hubpages.com and the biggest after that is discover.hubgages.com.
Which of these two registers viewers from Google?
Neither. Those views are internal views.
You can go to the top of each article in Author View to see the stats for that article. Or you can go here https://hubpages.com/my/hubs/traffic-sources to see your overall numbers.
If the article is recently published, i.e. less than a week, the figures may not have registered properly.
The stats are a nice feature, thanks! It is helpful to see which countries I get the traffic from.
Yeah, the link you've posted is where I look to try to understand my traffic. So it seems that I have no traffic from google at all.. Do you think it has to do with me being here for only some weeks? I have heard it can take a lot of time before Google starts to rank one's article.
You can also use Google Analytics which provides more detailed stats. This is a guide in the Learning Centre on how to set it up:
https://hubpageshelp.com/money/Learning … -analytics
I tried to set it up this morning but it did not work for me. The tracking ID I've got was not accepted by Hubpages.
The article seems too old to me, Google Analytics does not look like that. Or maybe it has to do with my location? Maybe the Swedish version looks different but I highly doubt that. They should all be the same.?
Did you get as far as setting up your account on GA?
On the main HP stats page: Articles: Traffic Sources gives you a basic overview for your entire account.
To receive Google traffic in any large amount means getting your articles off Discovery and into one of the topic-orientated niches, Owlcation, Wanderwisdom, ToughNickel, etc.
If you can get articles into niches, you can more or less just leave them there and they will pick up Google traffic over time (assuming you've researched your keywords and article gives the readers what they want)..

Jennifer - first of all ... don't ask for readership. Let it come. And it will come if you do the following:1. Read others work and comment/ rate it2. Take part in the forum, even if it's just asking for help or offering help to others3. Publish hubs of interest to your fellow hubbers4. Rate up...

I have never seen this before! Analytics shows that I have traffic, but HP's traffic sources is showing all zeros. Anybody else having this issue?
