    google analytics is telling me the keyword "louis xiv fashion for men" sent someone to my site. I do not beleive I have ever come even close to mentioning fashion or the sun king and when I used it as a search term I couldn't find any of my stuff. my brain hurts, I'm assuming I missunderstand what
    "louis xiv fashion for men" sent 1 total visits

    It might be log spam, or it might be because Google indexed some of the related hubs information or other stuff that pops up on hubs sometimes.

    I've got all kinds of strange stuff in my analytics as well!

    My highest keyword is unimpressed turtle. Not highly encouraging.

    Maybe someone found HP using that keyword then when here they found your hub and google followed all of that. Thats my guess anyway smile

      ^ this.

      Google will keep track if someone googles into a hub, then somehow ends up on yours. I've seen this happen many times.
