In my traffic sources I see a lot of other peoples hubpage profiles. This means they have linked one or more of my hubs into them. Is that correct? Is there any way to find out which hub(s) other than searching thru every hub or contacting them which I wouldn't do?
Do you have Google Analytics set up? I've never bothered digging that deep, but if there's a way, it will be in GA.
That's all too hard. Loll
I just looked at a newly published hub into the stats tab and saw a traffic source from a hub profile that I know wouldn't have linked to me because their hubs are completely diff topics. So maybe I've got it all wrong. Maybe it can show up as a traffic source if they are logged in and view a hub of mine from an email or something? So confused.
I was going to tell you about the related hub thing too. Also when people view another hubbers profile and if they've commented on your hub or something and people click your hub through those links (At the bottom of the profile - Hubber activity) it shows as a visit from that hubbers URL.
Update: It appears you can.
Go into GA and click on "Sources", "Referrals" and then in the list, click on "Hubpages.com"
That will take you to a list of specific link referrals.
So it seems there are quite a number of hubpages that are in the referrals...id love to know which hubs they are linking to but cant seem to see that. nice to know that my hubs are liked though
It doesn't necessarily mean the author is linking to your hub. Your hub could be shown as a related hub on one of their hubs, and someone followed the link.

Ever since the switch to subdomains, I have seen specific subdomain names listed on the traffic stats for individual Hubs; and on the Traffic Sources Page, the numbers for HubPages have seemed to decline (understandably). Recently, I have seen higher numbers for HubPages.com, and I don't...

I am still sort of new here and have a question about traffic sources. When I go to my traffic sources I can see hubpage views, google views, etc, but some hubbers actually show up with their hub page ulr. And some are crazy amount of views.
