Google Verses Hub Traffic

    Is there a way within Hub Pages to see which articles are only receiving Hub traffic?  I try to beef up the low performing Hubs but it would help to know which Hubs have no outside traffic. 

    Or is the score of the Hub sufficient to monitor the lack of Google traffic?

      Generally speaking , you can go to "my account" where you can find how your individual hubs are performing. Then go to sources from where you are getting the traffic. Combine both of them ; you can get the rough idea about how each hub is performing.Apart from this you can check the individual hub performance by clicking statistics on front page of hub.

      Other than that you can use google analytics for where the traffic comes from for each and individual of your hubs. This will give you detailed report about how long the visitor stays in (bounce rate).This will also help us choose topic for particular region. And the keyword search of particular hub.

      What I can say , Hub page gives us statistics of our hubs in short and summary form ,whereas Google analytics gives us Brief and detailed way.

      HubScores are not a direct and sole result of Google traffic.  They are a metric that has zero relevance outside of HubPages.  To use them as a measure of Google traffic would be highly inaccurate.

    Hey GmaGoldie,

    Google Analytics would be the way to determine which hubs are getting what traffic from where. wink

    GA1 is always the best answer, but in a quick glance your in hubs traffic sources on each hub will answer your question.

    Just click Stats on your individual hub

      Hub sats and Google analytics are great tools. I find the hub stats more handy , I know the other is more accurate.

        BTW are the impressions resulting from websurfing done by us members on the hubpages website counts? I know clicking adsense is not allowed, but are we paid for the impressions?

    Another question!  Are page views counted when HP has control during their 40% share of time?  For example, if my hub stats say
    600 visits would there actually be 1000 counting HP's roughly 400?

      Good question. I am eager to know the answer.

        I will add to my question above. Why is the page view in my Hub statistic is bigger than the impressions of both Traffic sources and adsense website, for example Hubs stat will say 60 page view, and Hub trafic source will say around 40, and adsense website will be 15? I don't know how it works, I thought page impression and page view is the same, and the same numbers. Thanks.

      So you have never compared your adsense/analytics/hp stats? !!!!

      No, HP stats show all views regardless of whose ad impression share it is.

        Ipeoneyposted 7 years agoin reply to this

        I haven't actually recorded that numbers from Adsense and Analytic, but I will take a look at that. I just notice that HP Stats numbers are quite higher than HP Source of Traffic numbers. It could be because one visitor actually visit several pages in one visit.
        Thank you Sunforged for your reply.

        Yes I have, thus the question!  My page views on GA seem to be roughly 40% more than listed on my HP stats, but I wasn't sure I was reading the data correctly!  But apparently I am reading the stats wrong if you are correct in your answer!

        Thanks!

          I wonder if HP drops search engine crawling from their stats?  That's something I always want to deduct when I am looking at stats; maybe they feel the same way?

    I would like to know why one of my trackers says I have X views; but the hub it is pointing to says I have only one-tenth of that?

    1. thisisoli profile image54
      thisisoliposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      Have you used that tracker code in any other URLs?

      1. paradigmsearch profile image86
        paradigmsearchposted 7 years agoin reply to this

        The same tracker is being used in 2 urls, each url pointing to a different hub.

        Therefore the tracker count is the total of the 2 urls. Call that X.

        The hub1 + hub2 total is/was one-tenth of that.

    Well I noticed that on the top of each hub is a section that says: edit, stats, delete, suggest links

    So if you click on stats it will show you the top traffic sources from google, yahoo and hubpages as well as the number of pageviews broken down by day,  week and month which is really useful.

      Yes, but it doesn't show the ones that are missing! smile

        That is the "Missing Traffic" link.  They had to discontinue it because listing every web site you do NOT get referrals from took up too much space.

          LOL

    .
    My url count just jumped another 20. The hub count went up precisely ZERO! What the h*ll is this!?!
    .

  8. paradigmsearch profile image86
    paradigmsearchposted 7 years ago

    HP traffic stats, google adsense, and google analytics have all confirmed that I did not get credit for those last 20 url referrals. As far as all 3 are concerned, those referrals never happened.

  9. paradigmsearch profile image86
    paradigmsearchposted 7 years ago

    And it's not just the last 20, it looks like many, many more of those referals just "never happened", ie: someone else is getting the visiter/view/ad-click credits.

    .
    Those urls are herewith being changed to elsewhere...

  11. paradigmsearch profile image86

    Done. And that is that.

    is teh tracker showing traffic from teh hubs you referred?

    I never really followed it, I jsut keep on dreaming that the next Nelle or Ryan Kett signs up with my tracker tongue

  13. paradigmsearch profile image86
    paradigmsearchposted 7 years ago

    No, and that is the problem (tracker showing traffic, targeted hubs NOT showing traffic). Those 2 urls are funneling some really decent traffic to HP and I was getting maybe only 10% credit on the destination hubs for it. I’ve now changed both urls to just point directly to my profile. Yours truly is going to do some serious auditing going forward…
