So far, every time I post a hub, I get a few views from other hubbers. What cues a hubber I've posted?
Yep, you'll show as a recently posted hub..Also any followers will be notified when you post a new hub.
It could be a follower of yours, as they are alerted when you publish a hub. Or it could just be random traffic that is HubHopping.
Also, all hubbers' activities are logged in the hubtivity on the home page.
Hey Beth, which icon takes you to the home page?
Sign out, then http://hubpages.com
Or, click on the link when you are signed-in and it will take you to your specially designed homepage.
When you're signed in, click on the HubPages logo. It will bring you to your home page.
The HubPage logo did the trick. Thanks Beth
I'm confused all over, sorry. The hubpage logo takes me to a listing of my activity. I thought you were directing me to the place where all activity was listed as it was generated via all hubbers.
I don't know why, but I'm sure the few views I've been getting when I post were not from hubbers sitting on my activity page waiting for something to happen. (lol)
That's okay. It's better to ask a question than to sit scratching our head and watching strands of hair fall out.
There are two pages that you can navigate to. The first page when you sign into HubPages is your home page. The second page is your profile page which can be accessed by the words "Profile Page" which is located to the left of the "help" button on the black strip across the top of the page.
You will see this black header on your home page too.
At any time when you are navigating through HubPages, you can click on the logo to get back to your home page.
The home page has two style options that HP allows you to choose. The first is the standard page. This is what everyone starts with. On the top right, there is a drop down box that allows you to change the format and look of the page. This is called the Customizable Home Page. This page has a great tutorial within itself and lends itself for you to customize the viewing panes of information that you are interested in through filters and groupings.
Let's go back to the Standard Home Page. You will see on the left your Welcome greeting and your avatar. On the right is the listing of "Hubtivity". This is where you will see the activity of all HupPage hubbers who are currently actively involved in contributing within the site. This is live information. This viewing pane allows you to see approximately 4 activities at one time. If you would like to see more, click on the "More Hubtivity -->" words located at the top right of the pane. Like magic, the list will pop up before your eyes.
To the left of "More Hubtivity -->" there is an option to edit your preferences. This option is worded "Edit Preferences". When you choose this option, the page that opens up will provide you a listing of the hubtivity plus the options to filter the listing as you choose. If you alter the default settings, make sure you save before you leave the page.
I hope this helps, and if there are more questions, don't hesitate to ask! It's Monday tomorrow, and off to work I go for the week. Unfortunately, we do not have internet access so I won't be able to reply until late evening or the weekend. If you like, you can email and I'll respond by the evening.
Don't forget that your own views show up too.
More often, i see stats lagging reality. I have a hub today with 2 comments and no pageviews :-)
Hi Carlprimetimelee welcome to HubPages. Click on your own photo will take you to your Profile page and at the bottom is listed your hubactivity and notice of followers. Also should get emails telling you that plus all followers may be notified by email that you wrote a hub. Clicking on the HubPages top left takes you to your Preferences where you can read Hubs you are following, answer questions, read hubs from fave topics. Play with your buttons along the top to see where it takes you. In your my account tab is where you can see list to click anywhere you need. Hope that helps. Feel like I wrote a novel lol

I am major curious about the answer to this mystery.... just how much traffic are those Hubs who make it to the HOT HUBS actually receiving? I know that most likely nobody is going to give this up with specific...

I have noticed that, when signed out, there is a new homepage. I am not sure whether the new format is helpful. There are some great hubbers featured making statements on how much they earn from this site,...

As you all have probably realized by now, I have a lot of new ideas that pop into my head ALL the time. Well, my latest idea is a little bit wacky, but I think that it will be great for the HubPages community....

I'm a newbie and I just discovered the customizable home page. It's VERY cool and VERY well implemented.But one thing I miss from the standard home page is seeing my author score. On the standard home page,...

I have just noticed today that many of my hubs where I reference other author's hubs and included a link to their profile, the URL has been shortened to just "hubpages.com" - thereby removing the actual link...

If you visited a Topic Page recently, you may have noticed that it looks a little different! Read about the redesign in today's blog post! Update: Since several Hubbers were asking about this: to get to the Feed, hover...
