    I see that there are 4 traffic sources. Search Engines, Direct traffic, referring sites, and other.

    Does direct traffic mean from hubpages?

    And referring sites? I have some for that..

    Direct traffic shows how many visitors arrived at your hub (or any other page for that matter) through typing the URL directly into their browser, through a bookmark (favorites) and from some paid advertising sources.

      Okay, thanks man.

      Referrals though? I know what referral means, but does that mean in this case that someone gave backlinks to some of my hubs?

    Yep, but more precisely it means someone clicked those links to get to your hub.

    This should all be easy enough to see under your account and "traffic sources".

      HubPages stats are rather limited and only show a short list of referring sites.
