    This hubber has published 1 hub.  At least that's all I can see.  Yet over the last few days, he has gotten three medals for:  84 hubs getting 100 visitors;  84 hubs getting 10,000 visitors; and 84 hubs getting 100,000 visitors.  That's over a period of 3 days.  Like I said, I can only find 1 hub, and it says he's been a member for over a year.  What's going on here?

      This means there is something wrong with the program. Hubteam should correct it.

      Time to call in the HubPolice?

      He may be buying cheap traffic using something like Google adwords. I dunno.

        Well, don't I feel stupid.  Here's the link:   http://hubpages.com/profile/tomksoft


        You can still see the activity in his hubtivity.

    Maybe once the Hubber got the medals all their hubs were flagged and removed?

    Seems the "84" (right now it it is 87) is his author hubscore. That is the way it is depicted with the medals.

    It seems that he has followed some of the advice that he gave in the hub!!

      Yes, I see what you're saying.  Well, that's a lot of pageviews in 3 days!  Do other people get traffic like this?  Geez, I want some.

        You can have all you want...if you pay about $1 per 1000 pageviews, supposedly. hahaha

        That makes it even more intriguing because he has increased his hub views at that fantastic rate when there are no hubs to view. And his Hubscore is 83? with no Hubs or Huvtivity.  Kind of like magic! I wish I knew the trick!  I do believe Sixtyorso is correct but why have not the HubPolice commented on this Forum?

    Now, it says he has no published hubs...now I am really confused...how do you get traffic to hubs that don't exist????

      That takes real talent! (It is a cool -looking hubtivity box.)

    As of this moment, this Hubber (http://hubpages.com/profile/tomksoft) has posted no Hubs (although he did post one a little while ago).  Clearly, there's a programming error, or troll, spam, virus, hack?  Larry?

    What a dream come true!  100,000 page views without having to write one word!  Wow, good work when you can get it.

      Christoph Reillyposted 8 years ago in reply to this

      Yeah.  It keeps getting weirder.  The  one hub that was on there yesterday, was about keywords and getting traffic.  It wasn't that special of a hub, but man, it sure looked like it was working for him!

      1. Shirley Anderson profile image86
        Shirley Andersonposted 8 years ago in reply to this

        The least he could do is cut us in on the action. 

        He's been here longer than you and I, did you notice?  I've never heard of him, guess that's because he doesn't write anything.

    As I said earlier someone has hacked into hubpages and cracked the code somehow.

    I came across something similar at bukisa.com where the most viewed article had over 50000 pageviews for a farily ordinary looking article. The article right behind it only had around 5000 views. Bukisa pays around $3.6 to $3.9 per 1000 pageviews. If you buy traffic at $1 per 1000 visitors, you'd still make a profit.
