This must be the quickest thread available on the forum apart from those spam threads that end suddenly....
I just wish that there would be someway soon of getting rid of the self tracking issue so we can just see other visits from other sources....
I mean yeah we can track from google analytics but that is another step that some can't be arsed with.....
Oh the internet is a wonderful place.....praise be to the spirit in the sky for this ace invention of jesus...bwahahahahaha!!! I is mad!! sorry...!
Ariel D. Bravy, I think each hub score is partly based on the number of views, so having one's own views count just helps your hub score! That said, it would be nice to be able to exclude one's own views to get a better idea of how much traffic one is getting. I think the fact that you can see WHERE traffic is coming from (i.e. google, yahoo, or links that you put in place on other websites to your hub) is AWESOME. Hubpages is very well thought out! In other words, hubpages ROCKS... is there a limit on gushing? Will this reply be flagged overly-gushing?
If you are interested in looking at where your traffic is coming from, then Google Analytics is the answer. All Hubpages will show you is the source, but little more that you can use to improve it.
For example, for the search engines it can tell you what search terms, so you can work on moving up in the rankiings for that. For referring sites, you can see on one page which hubs are seeing referral traffic for each source (for example Ezine articles, or social bookmark sites),
What they don't yet enable on hubpages is tracking outbound clicks like they do on Squidoo or you can do with some Wordpress blog plug ins. This would be great if you wanted to know which hubs were generating referall traffic for a money site, or if you wanted to track which hubs were generating click throughs to Amazon. This would also allow you to use the Goals and conversion tracking features of Analytics, which is not really possible as I understand it now.

As per the new changes HubPages has made, I was required to make a few changes to the amount of Amazon products I was showing. I lowered the amount of products to lower than an average of 1 per 50 words on the hubs that HubPages has penalized. Furthermore, on hubs that weren't penalized I got rid...

I have followed instructions on both HP and GA itself but when I get to the place where the upgrade should be, it's not there.I see what it is supposed to look like. Just can't figure out why my option to upgrade isn't there. Anyone that has insight is welcome to give me some pointers.
