60 billion hubpages views in a single day

The Matrix has us alright LOL


Crazy times online indeed

Have you ever been online as a content publisher or writer and wondered where do all these stats come from, also known as web traffic views. Well something very odd is occurring actually here on hubpages of all places.

This isn't a joke or some weird kind of gimmick of sorts this is the real deal folks and it only takes an active eye and a bit of concern for your own lets say HP account, to notice when the number game has went totally apes bananas on you. What I'm speaking on is in terms of receiving either very little web traffic or a steady flow of it, and especially when something doesn't quite add up right.

Well I'm writing this very article to not only address a situation that is happening to not only me, but potentially 1000's of authors here online. Please don't be alarmed when the actual reenactment of this occurrence gets read here on the screen by you the active audience and web surfer types, because it is quite shocking indeed. (If your a fellow hubber reading this very page, well you know what's going on alright and especially if you we're one of the lucky winners to get the digital HP bug of sorts, and that of a sort of new age glitch going around like some overnight viral craze.)

This is the image of my normal traffic graph, but look below it

What kind of technical crap is going one LOL
What kind of technical crap is going one LOL

Numbers are Bogus at times

Now before I unleash such facts here, I would like to state that this has never ever happened here before on this online writers platform, and not that I know of. I been a hubpages writer, for about 18 months going on 19 as of the publishing of this very hub. I wrote a total of 370 hub articles, which 366 of them are officially published. I mention this because what I'm about to tell you all is so freaking bewildering, when I first noticed it my freaking eyes almost popped out. I had to take a triple take look at it, I showed it to my wife even, and my younger female cousin,and even they were astounded.

OK the drum roll please, ....... What I saw there was utterly statistically mind blowing, I had on my hubpages account a grand total of 60,129,549,197 views. "What the freak in the world wide web is going on here" I had thought to myself after I almost dropped my laptop onto the floor. No way, this cannot be true, how does someone go from a total of 120,000+ views that took a whole year and a half to accumulate after intense online battle, communications and networking with others across various platforms etc.. to then one day see this show up on their hubpages account.

This is a more up close and personal view

I had a total of 15 idle hubs that have 4 billion+ views, what in the world?

The digital boat may have sunk who knows or is it hackers?

Something is inherently wrong here, and I was both desperate, and nervous as heck wondering if some little kid in his basement may have somehow hacked into the Hubpages central main frame somewhere in California and silicon valley, where all the Captain Crunch (Code name: John Draper) type hackers are not only born, but breed in matrix prison like structures perhaps. (I never been there in real life, but saw it on some Sci-Fi film movie years back.)

Who knows what could have caused this most obvious glitch of sorts, because no way in hell is my writing online that good to attract 60 billion views. Let alone earn my first million views that may take me a total of 4.2 years here on hubpages, going at the pace my hub traffic is moving today. Yikes, it is both somewhat discouraging to see here on my hubpages account, and yes the glitch is still here as I am typing this text onto this very hub. Oh almost lost my train of thought here, yeah the other part of "both" was yeah, exciting!, why how dazzling it felt to see initially it clutch my eye balls (You know that insane number thingy), man these numbers do indeed drive us crazy don't they.

Did I follow the white rabbit?


Dreams are only dreams folks but glitches are a factor of a truly broken reality

So what did I do next, I thought to myself "Self, if I jump over there on FB and communicate this issue with all of my networking buddies, pals, and gals. Maybe just maybe I might score an answer to this crazy erroneous stats number issue of having billions of views in just a single day."

I decided not to post the massively huge number in fear that maybe the Facebook police might arrest me for doing something like posting the truth, because I'm sure if I had posted what I was truly thinking, such a number could have caused massive pandemonium there. Low and behold I started off very slowly by playing detective and asking nicely one person at a time, what have they experienced there. Then I proceeded to make a single post onto my status there to see if anyone else had such an issue with their stats, but still decided to withhold the actual number in fear that maybe hubpages would think it was me that caused this ridiculous glitch of sorts. Man oh man I was paranoid at that point, but still determined to get down to the bottom of the out of control situation there on my HP account.

You gotta love this dude, Maybe my stats are doing the Gangnam Style dance on Hubpages

Darn PSY and freaking Harlem Shake, here comes the hubpages Glitch LOL

I did actually think about contacting the Hubpages staff or Team, which I never done before mind you, but since they usually post a red message onto our hubpages account area's when something of out of the ordinary occurs I then backed down, and crawled into my turtle shell again.

This time however I really was gonna do it, but since this isolated incident may have been only on my HP account there, I again backed down. Who knew if it was a site wide issue, if so they would have made such an announcement right, and in that case I would have not had to write anything at all, and certainly not this silly glitching hub.

So as an ignorant fool to the not so obvious facts at hand and in play, I gave it a few moments and walla out of nowhere, some cool folks I rarely ever communicate with began popping up onto that specific FB status post, and there it was I saw what I was looking for. Yup another person had the same issue, then and only then did I feel comfortable with letting the cat out of the bag, which brings me here to this very hubs publishing.

This is just for fun people, please don't be alarmed, our stats are going haywire here and people need a sigh of relief for once.

Amazing Stats

I am still somewhat shook up by seeing this gargantuan number, its something I shall frame and keep for the record books, and as long as I am alive, because I never came across such a chance of seeing this kind of action in my entire life, and even if its just some digits here on the screen, even if its just a glitch that I hope the Hubpages staff is indeed working on, which I'm sure they are.

This may be my only chance to finally experience the dream I wished for, and that is to achieve Billions of views someday on the web, maybe I can be like Mark Zuckerburg, or that cool guy PSY who sky rocketed through the Youtube charts with 2,028,667,341 views on his Youtube channel as of today. Holy smoke's is this a dream, can someone slap me off of my computer chair, man oh man I need to wake up from wonderland here, or maybe I'm still trapped in The Matrix with NEO and the rest of them cyber goons. LMFAO, maybe I have made it to viral heaven after all, who knows, please just fix this thing so I can quit playing around here and start back dreaming again. Hah!

Oh I almost forgot about the Harlem Shake viral craze (is that like a soft drink you get in the summer time), isn't that one a Glitch too. Man they need to fix it fast, we are getting tired of seeing them crazies crunch out ridiculous numbers for pure insanity here in cyber space.

Some people are obviously viewing your hubs multiple times, (and that sounds fraudulent) since the world population is only a little over seven billion. :)

Wow, Mike that's astonishing. Not too long ago I held a Hubscore of 99 for 3 consecutive days. That blew me away because I hadn't posted anything since last month. Then a couple of days ago I received an accolade stating my hubs have been read over 10,000 times! Say what? I've only posted 89 hubs! How can that be? Do we get readers who don't comment? That's the only thing I can think of to solve the mystery.

Nevertheless, enjoy your bombastic traffic!

Yeah, Mike something's up. I just checked mine and it's showing 4,294,868,527 views in 30 days but only 10,460 ever. Something's definitely amiss!

Speak for yourself. I am quite certain that I got my 4,294,967,295 views. Certainly I was getting 20-30 views a day before that, however I am sure that this new and larger number is correct.

Hah! @Rochelle Frank, Darn I wish this was real, than I could quite my day job, my night job, and also my afternoon one here online. LOL , but how could that be if so many others are having the same exact glitch Rochelle.

@bravewarrior, I wish this was the truth, then I could go party over with PSY and his crazy cool dancing self, and maybe meet Keanu Reeves on the set of The Matrix 4 that may never ever come out on the silver screen. LOL I loved that movie, and so I write a great deal about it, when weird glitch type crap goes on here online.

@billybuc, I love dreams Bill, its my favorite subject to run off into tangents on as a writer, I just need to write much more about them.

Most of my hub here that I wrote was a glitch in itself, go figure, and I had to fix it all up, maybe its these darn text capsules that's causing all the issues here on HP, who made these things anyhow. LOL

Do we get to retain the earning for all those bogus view? Hmm. Bet it doesn't work both ways. Whaddya think?

@bravewarrior, It seems like the Billions are beginning to fade away now, I will be providing the footage for all to enjoy watching as it pans out here, but nope I don't think we will be earning a thing from it LOL.

Well Mike, if you end up with nothing else after the dust settles and the glitch is sorted out, other than this hub, then I think that it will still have been a good thing.

At least you have made an interesting and an amusing hub which was a delight to read, and readers like myself get to be both amused and informed at the same time.

By the way just in case you are interested, my hits are boringly normal, no heady glitches for me I'm afraid lol...

Voting up and hitting the relevant buttons on my way out.

@maggs224, Hey there Maggs glad to have you join in on the viral craze glitch thing we're celebrating here. It's really out of control what numbers can make us all feel today, and this goes to show that the number game does have some sort of psychological effect on us all for sure.

Thanks for sharing with me your awesomely insightful comment and vote. I do appreciate it and will try to repay the favor some time soon. Have a wonderful day!

Mine has been stuck at the same number since Saturday and won't move. I wish I had your excitement going. I just looked at my monthly views and I have 8,589,993,620. Wouldn't it be nice if these numbers were true?

CloudExplorer profile image

CloudExplorer 3 years ago from New York City Author

@Barbara Kay, LOL yeah mine is at 25 billion+ views now, its a gran total loss of 35 billion views in a day. Go figure!

I think my eyes are playing tricks on me possibly, maybe I am dreaming and still trapped in the matrix, who knows right!

Haha this sure is fun though Barbara, oh and thanks for joining in on the fun and games here, you just gotta laugh it off!

Yes, there was a major glitch on HP the other night, as I arrived home and one older hub showed 4,294,967,295 views!!! I did a forum on it, and found out that same night several other hubbers had that same number on several of their hubs as well. It has sense been corrected. But it is concerning that such a thing can show up like that, what a MAJOR glitch to say the least! Hubber btrbell said she was going to take a photo of it. We all should have done so. LOL Just to remember the false day of hope! LOL

Wouldn't it be great if that were true! I guess I need to sign up to earn money here, before it actually happens one day for real. LOL

God bless, Faith Reaper

Hey Faith, yes indeed that Glitch was a big eye opened, and mine had the same number yours had. I enjoyed this moment, and to be able to find out it wasn't just me was just the good feeling I needed to no longer be so mistified by it all.

Thanks for taking the time to share with me here Faith, it was cool of you as you do so much, have a wonderful evening & thanks also for the good blessings.

This is the first time I have heard of this type of glitch. I am glad to be aware of it. I think seeing something like that would scare me. I would be terrified I was hacked. Thanks for sharing.
