When I look at HubPages stats and click on Keywords why does it sometimes say "no search terms found." On other hubs there are several search terms. In case you need the title of the hub, it's "Surviving the Death of a Spouse."
When you click on the Keywords tab, the terms that show up (when they do) are keywords/phrases that people have actually used as search terms on their way to that specific Hub - in the past 30 days.
If no keywords show up, then either the Hub hasn't been visited at all in the past 30 days, or it was not found through a search in the past 30 days. Maybe people did read it - by Hub-Hopping, or because you recommended it to your friends, or someone saw it listed on the home page, etc.
Does that clarify things?
Actually, all my hubs are saying no search terms found. Another hubber pointed it out to me yesterday. A glitch?
I just now looked at my most-searched hub and it too showed no search terms. I believe you are correct, Izzy; apparently there is a search-term blackout operating now! aka a glitch - thanks for the info.
I hope WFT checks back about this. It could be very discouraging for him, if he only read my general information and didn't know about the current problem!
Well no I didn't mention it on the forums at all. I assume they knew - it'll be something they are working on likely.
You are probably right about that, but I think I'll open a thread to mention it, just in case it's a glitch they haven't learned about yet. That does sometimes happen.
Problem reported several days ago but not fixed...
Now also a problem with the sources of traffic, only shows one source for a hub when you check the stats ie. Google.com or Hubpages.com etc. This problem also reported
- will the staff take any action or feedback though - I have noticed a distinct lack of feedback on problems lately, not even a "we're working on it."
Be fair folks, HP are carrying out a big and complex experiment with the subdomains, if our views (and earnings) get boosted as a result then I can live with a few glitches! :-)

According to HubPages stats, my UK monthly traffic is 17% that of US traffic. GA says it's 4%. GA traffic is tracked, so is HubPages somehow identifying the country of origin which raises the ratio?

Why are no search terms and keywords recording in stats?For the last week or so, there don't seem to be any search terms sources under my stats. I used to find it helpful to know what keywords people are using to find my hubs. Are you having the same problem?

I looked under Stats/ Search and it says "Search Term Sources not available" for all of my Hubs. Is this a new "feature" or am I looking in the wrong place?

I've received some more information from our engineering team regarding the recent issues with stats processing.The stats processing mechanism is a bit complicated (due to the sheer amount of data to process), with many interconnected parts.Unfortunately, this means that a single failure can cause...

This is going to seem like an ignorant question, but how do you get search terms for your hub?Should I just add a bunch of tags, everything that I can think of?

Or not? I mean the kewords there are not listed in the keywords I put for the hubs.
