Traffic Sources

    I would like to suggest adding "Digg," "Stumble Upon" and the rest of the feeds available to US on the "share" button.

    If those service are available for us to promote our articles, then why should we not be able to track those same sites as traffic sources, so we can get a more accuate picture?

    There are "a gazillion" different Google sources listed, but not very many others.  If you could at least add in the ones available for sharing, that would be awesome!

    Thank you!

      If you click the "help" button on the traffic stats page, a message appears that reads "Below we've listed the top 30 sites that are referring traffic to your hubs over various time periods (with a minimum of 5 referrals). Please note that not every page view has a discernible referring source."

      I use Google Analytics to get more traffic info than what shows here.

        ok--thanks.  I have GA, but it is a lot on the techie side for me.  I've never found it to be much help, because I can't seem to understand the layout, or some of the terms, and I'm not really sure what it's telling me beyond the blatantly obvious...  ::: shrug :::

    Not sure it'll happen Lizzy - there was a lot of hubs spammed around some of the sites that allow you to share stuff. Think we got banned off a few hmm

      Oh, bummer. ...well...not sure the one has to do with the other. 

      However, since they are linked so you can share your stuff there, the spammers can still find you. 

      Doesn't seem to me to be related to our private statistics.
