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.
Google Analytics would be the way to determine which hubs are getting what traffic from where.
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.
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.
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!
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?
Have you used that tracker code in any other URLs?
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!
My url count just jumped another 20. The hub count went up precisely ZERO! What the h*ll is this!?!
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.
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...
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
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…

Ever since the switch to subdomains, I have seen specific subdomain names listed on the traffic stats for individual Hubs; and on the Traffic Sources Page, the numbers for HubPages have seemed to decline (understandably). Recently, I have seen higher numbers for HubPages.com, and I don't...

I've noticed that there is at least one post claiming to have gained a significant amount of traffic this week, but for me, my traffic has dropped by 50%. One hub, which at its height was getting over 4k hits a day, is now down to 500 hits daily, and every other hub on my account has dropped...

Well, its official, my hubs are all down about 39%. Strangely enough my profile views are up to 40%. This is very odd cause usually my profile views are never that high. Has anyone else experienced this? Maybe its just random.

Should you update a Hub when you see its traffic waning, even before it's gone Idle? Will this keep it from going Idle and increase traffic to it?

I don't understand something.If the average time people spend on an article is 4.5 minutes, how can the bounce rate be 90%? Doesn't 'bounce' mean that they just go on the site for a split second and then go off?

I know there have been a lot of changes and I really appreciate that. I also am looking forward to the new hub layout...but...with disappointment.In any business, one must first make their assessment about what works and what doesn't. The things that don't work, you either fix them or get rid of...
