Traffic from somewhere.

    Hello

    I have noticed that a couple of my Hubs are generating traffic from site's I do not know, I have not submitted them a rss feed or a backlink, and I have been wondering how this has happened and is this OK? do I need to do anything about this?

    Thank you smile

      This is a good thing, it simply means a site has probably linked to you, which is DEFINITELY a good thing.

      Keep up the good work smile

      Means someone else has linked to your hub, like I get them from people who have emailed the link. Took me awhile to figure out myself...Don't be concerned, its a good thing.

    Hello Ben Peck, you seem to be doing fine. It is normal that links are created "organically." When someone finds your articles interesting, they may link to them in emails, on social bookmarking sites, websites, blogs etc.

      Hi Website Examiner.

      Thank you for replying.

      Should I keep an eye open for who is linking to my hubs, make sure they are not dodgy, or is that something that HubPages watches or does it not matter, if they are dodgy then could that lead to nofollow problems.

    You are welcome. I am not the perfect person to answer this. From what little I know, I'd imagine that the no-follow would only affect the value of that specific link. However, you would want to be in compliance with the Google Webmaster Guidelines, which more concerns activity such as you paying others to link to you or someone paying you to link to them.
