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".

I just got a nice 300% boost in traffic on one of my articles. I'd like to find out whether that came from a specific link. How do I do that? If I go onto "Traffic Sources" it just has a list of search engines.
