    I like to check the various features of my hubpages account, and I just looked at my traffic sources. When I first started, my only source was Hubpages. I know have 26 different sources, and many various outlets of Google. My other big sources are Facebook, and Bing. I don't get a whole lot of traffic, but to see it come from more places is certainly interesting.

    I'm sure that some of you have hundreds of sources. So, the question is, do you keep track of them? And what is your biggest source of traffic. Mine continues to be hubpages traffic, with Google quickly catching up.

      It is very interesting to see all the sources. Most of my visits are then a few other forms of Google... its nice when the majority of your visits come from Google instead of hubpages like when you first start.

      I have so many sources it's crazy! At least 80 or more. I don't really keep track of the different sources, other than take a peak every now and then.

    I nearly didn't post on here as I have only a few sources, a couple of different googles, Hubpages and Facebook. One that baffles me though is I have a few from Twitter and when I set the page up ages ago, I only have 1 follower (sad sad I know) so I dont bother with it????

    Mine is from google, bing, and yahoo, referral sites and some direct traffic.

    You really don't want to only have google traffic once the site/page is overthrown in the SERPS you get less & less. Mix it up with email marketing, word of mouth for direct traffic, and definitely other sites referring their users to you.
