How are subdomains treated by the bonus. This is sort of a minor point since it seems like hubs either have the traffic or they don't, but I'm curious.
For example, after making a livejournal post about my new hub (http://hubpages.com/_104soe4yc7to3/hub/ … Lock-Guide) some people are following the link from their personal subdomain like username.livejournal.com instead of www. or myusername.livejournal.com
So if you count the subdomains as one combined source (just as we count outbound links to subdomains as going to the same affiliate) you hit 10 visitors from one source very quickly. But if we count them separately, you have the potential of getting 10 visitors from each subdomain and get 10 unique sources (100 unique clicks) from a single domain.
(in case people are curious about how the subdomain structure might look, check out a site like livejournal example: http://boringryan.livejournal.com/ )
I don't presume to speak for Hubpages in any form or fashion, but were it me, I would count subdomains as one lump source, looking only toward the top level domain and disregarding the subdomain altogether.
I think gamergirl is right - but the good news is they count all the google's separate ie google.com google.co.uk, google.com.au etc
Its 10 from 10 domains. The subdomains are all under a main domain that would could as 1 source.

In his hub 'What We Don't Know About Google Panda?', Paul Edmondson points out that Google seems to expect sites to leap high above any bar that might reasonably be set for quality purposes.Paul seems less than happy with Google's attitude. He seems to think that if a page can somehow limp over...

Not having a large amount of hubs yet, has made the decision of focus a bit difficult again.Having just finished reading all I could about the incentive plan from hubpages on the capstone and flagship hubs, I'm stuck again.What do you write?Is it a mixture or do you have one focus?

Hi everyone,Those who read through the newsletter read about the new Capstone Hubs program, which is really an adjunct to the Flagship Hubs program (in fact, uses the same contract). In this case, however, you:* get to choose your topic* need to publish at least 15 Hubs on the same topic* then get...
