    You can look at the keywords people typed in to get to your hub.  It is called "entrance keyword" on your Landing Page Optimization.

    I enjoy reviewing the keywords that people typed in to get to my hubs.  My favorites listed so far are:

    "i am not your friend, i find the possibility of such a friendship vile."
    "How to play hard to get"
    "poisonous spiders in Seattle"
    "different ways to eat tuna?"

    All that to get to one of my hubs - and the subject of the hub has NOTHING to do with any of those topics. 

    What bizarre keywords got people to your hub?

    I don't know how it is related to my hubs but my analytics shows these keywords:

    - haunty on hubpages
    -mississippi agates
    - it's time for funerals to die
    -sufidreamer+three+tinkers
    -"best weight loss plan"
    - cross contamination of food

    I've found that sometimes we get the keywords that end up getting those readers on other people's hubs, who then click on a link to our hubs. When that happens obviously the keyword can be unrelated to our own.

    And of course sometimes they're just plain weird keywords.
