Nowadays I just seem to have endless questions. My hubs have not had much traffic so far, especially those about bakugans. But one of my newer one suddenly got more than 130 visits since yesterday, which is absolutely strange. One and the only one possible reason would be I shared on facebook and mentioned a video review was added to it. But still, with only a bit over 200 facebook friends, I just can't imagine to get this much traffic in such a short period of time. My question: is there any way to track down exactly what happened? also IF somehow I got artificial visits, would it have any negative impact to my account? Thanks
Have you tried google anaylitics? You can integrate it with your adsense account.
Thank you! I have actually, just assumed it would not give me the exact idea on how one particular hub get so much surprising traffic. I just hope there is no penalty
No penalty unless you have been spamming, using automation and/or self promoting in an unethical way.
You might be going viral all by yourself and how wonderufl it is to be givent the thumbs up because you have produced good content! Congratulations
If you didn't have GA activated, it can't help you with what took place before you turn it on. After that, it can show you the referring pages and/or search terms that brought the visits. It can also tell you even more.. If you search for "Analytics" here you will find hubs that deal with getting good use of it.
Also, channels in adsense offers some additional information on hubs. Just go to adsense and create a channel for each hub. You do this under adsense for content. Then you can tell which hub is paying.
Analytics can tell you the source of the traffic and which words were used for searches related to your hub. Follow pcunix's advice and activate analytics. You can then play around with the reports and see where the traffic comes from.
Most often, I am surprised by the traffic, and never expected it. As you can see I have a lot to learn.

I know we share earnings with HP on a 60/40 basis, but why have I not had a single Adsense view from HP in the last 6 hours?According to Analytics, I'm getting healthy viewing figures, but Adsense hasn't moved.Every hub I look at has HP's coding on it.

Instead of fiddling around with Google Adsense and Analytics to figure out which Hub is making me money, Can the team add a new feature to show number of ad clicks for each hub?I am techie and I have been fiddling around for almost 3 days with Google Adsense and Analytics to figure out what is...

Although I doubt this is an HP bug, I'll post it in the tech problems anyway -Yesterday traffic jumped about 20%. Almost all from one hub:HP stats says that hub got 350 views, up 300 from normal, with 275 of it from Yahoo. That's a weeks worth of traffic from Yahoo for the entire...

My sister signed up here some weeks ago after me, and taking into consideration the rules that you cant have more then 1 Google Adsense account from the same address I agreed to share my account with her.The problem is HB statistics shows 350 total visits but Google Adsense about 60. What is wrong...

It would be really helpful to see what the monetary value of each hub is per day or week or month (preferably per day or month) as an additional column on the main statistics page. For example, a Hub that was published years ago may have many views, but since they were acquired over a long time the...
