I haven't checked my Hub stats much recently due to Christmas and family etc. I logged in today and saw that my Hub earnings had shot up to $20+. I usually make a couple of dollars a month. This is fine for me, I do not write for the money I write for the fun. I just find it very funny that my earnings went from $1 - $2 per month to a whopping $20 for this month. I found that there was a massive traffic jump on one of my Hubs and whilst it is nice to see I really do not understand why such an increase occurred.
I have a Hub that is no bake cheesecake recipe and according to the stats it had over 5000 hits in the last 7 days and 655 in the last day. This is a massive increase and I am unsure how the heck I managed that. I wish I knew because I would then do the same thing with my other Hubs. I am wondering if it is Cheesecake week somewhere in the world or something like that.
Any opinions guys?
Wow! That sure is strange. I doubt it's cheesecake week. Maybe it's because of the holidays. Maybe people were looking for cheesecake recipes and yours turned up high in the search results and hence the high jump in traffic for that hub and in turn the earnings. I too feel the same way as you. When one of my hubs gets lots of traffic I always wonder why that is because if I knew why then I'd apply the same approach to my other hubs.
Someone with a large network liked your article and shared it. Happened to me once.
Another cheesecake hub has had a huge number of social network likes and visits. This thread discusses the situation. http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/119332. Your hub is probably linked to the viral hub in some way. Congratulations!
I heard some cheesecake hub went viral or something, I am new but I wont mind such traffic : )
Great result; well done. December was my best month ever too, but nothing like that sort of a jump.
A rise in December traffic is most likely due to people seeking out recipes and gift ideas for Christmas.
Clearly your Cheesecake hub got shared by somebody with a lot of contacts!
I noticed a jump too, but I just started publishing hubs again after a year break so I figure that was the jump in traffic. I hope whatever it is it will continue.
Are you using google analytics? It's really useful for telling you exactly where your traffic is coming from--twitter, facebook, google searches, bing searches, etc.
My traffic has gone from a few cents a day to a dollar a day. I noticed it rising through December. Do you think the Editors Choice Award helps Google search for quality hubs? My one viral hub about pomelos did not get an award but I have 6 Editors Choice Awards on other hubs.

Should you update a Hub when you see its traffic waning, even before it's gone Idle? Will this keep it from going Idle and increase traffic to it?

What is going on? One week ago I received notification from HubPages that several of my hubs would no longer be featured because of declining traffic. I suppose this means that I should jump in and recast, reformat, and...

Is there a way within Hub Pages to see which articles are only receiving Hub traffic? I try to beef up the low performing Hubs but it would help to know which Hubs have no outside traffic. Or is the score of...
