Getting a little "Mini viral" action on one of my hubs today

    I'm getting some Pinterest love on a different hub than usual the past few days.  It's had 2600+ views in the last 24 hours.  Google's never loved me that much - so this affirms my theory that I shall be focusing on developing hubs here that people find sharable. 

    Unfortunately the hub that's having the share love today was not one of the one's I adore or spent much time on.  Interestingly enough, it was a bit of a throw together one that I just happened to have knowledge about and thought - hmmm I bet ladies on Pinterest might enjoy these tips.  I guess they did lol. 

    I have a few hubs that get pinned all the time, this is one that is quite old, but has been discovered I guess.  Hope the trend continues.  smile

    Maybe I should broaden my horizons more to G+ which still confuses me a lot and to Twitter which I use, but honestly can't stand.

      Yay for you! I remember when I put something on reddit one time and I got over 3,000 views between when I went to bed and when I woke. Exciting! Pinterest is pretty neat in generating on going traffic. Now if I can just get my computer to like editing photos all would be well! Hope your increased viral attention sticks around!

      That's a nice boost!

      I sometimes feel the same way when one of my least-favorite Hubs gets a bit of attention (usually from Pinterest as well). I guess it just goes to show that even with a lot of data and experience, there's no predicting the internet!

      Excellent to hear that.  If you look at the stats for that Hub, were the views from social media or Google?  Be good to check stats for 'Day' before they get mixed up with the weeks stats.  If you know the source you can use it to your advantage. 

      I hear Google+ is good because there is an even stronger 'sharing' culture there.  It used to confuse me too but I am just getting the hang of it.

      It's a bit like Facebook but instead of having everyone, friends/family/co workers/ seeing everything, you create 'circles' and add people to them.

      So you can create a circle for each and only things shared with that circle will be seen.  ie pictures shared with 'family' circle will only be seen by the people in your 'family' circle.

      I think it is good for promoting niches related to your Hubs, you just create a circles related to your niche/s and add people who have an interest in that niche, everytime you share something you know all the people will be interested.  Unlike Facebook you won't end up spamming all your friends and family with stuff they have no interest in.

        The more +'s you get on a post in Google Plus, the higher you can rank too, which is another reason to spend time playing around on there. Come join the What The Hub? community on Google + for more love wink

      That's awesome, Kristin! Which one is it, may I ask? I'd like to read it myself!

      In all the time I have been here at HP, I have never had any article get numbers even close to that.  Ironically, though, my best performing hub is one I wrote before I knew anything at all about online writing!  Go figure!

    I definitely agree that it's unpredictable at best.  Hubs that I've written and taken the most time with end up not doing well sometimes and then others I kind of throw together in spare time without high expectations will sometimes take off and do very well. 

    I've decided to just roll with it more.  If there's something I want to write; I'll write it and see what happens.  You just never know.  It also gives me hope that with some revamping, my older not as good hubs may still have a fighting chance to gain some traction.  smile

    This one was a happy surprise though over the past week it's had 6,000+ views, with the 2600+ in the last 24 hours.  I'll take it smile.
