When I look at one of my hubs, it is showing quite a bit of traffic from HP.
More than I would expect, I mean, and I also see less from Google than I would expect.
So it got me thinking... this is something I don't understand yet...
If I get a view from Google, and that person clicks a link to another one of my hubs, how is that registered in HP stats?
Is the view on the second hub listed as traffic from HubPages, since it linked from a HP page, or as Google, because that is where the original traffic came from?
I'm not quite up to speed with GA yet, and this confuses me there too.
I've always assumed it was the last site visited (any site with a link to your page) that is the referrer, including hubpages.
In my opinion first should show Google as the refer and HP for the second one if the analytics is working properly.
I do sometimes see in Google analytics keywords from other peoples hubs that I know are keywords I'm not using. So GA sure isn't perfect and HP stats are even less reliable it seems.
I'm in the same boat as you, not sure of the answer.
Yep MyWebs is right, the referrer will show up as the last page visited prior to a visitor landing on your hub.

I'm sorry if this has been answered; I'm having trouble searching the forums and I already read the FAQ.I noticed that on my traffic sources I have a lot of hits from Bing and Yahoo, but none from Google. This seems bizarre to me, as all of my other sites get three times as much traffic from Google...

My traffic sources is showing Hubpages, Google, Yahoo, etc but does not show my web site, which I am sure is active and bouncing visitors back to my articles on Hubpages. Any idea why it does not show up?

Hi, I have noticed that for a few days now, while the traffic stats are updating, our traffic sources are not. Has anyone else noticed this too?
