    Last week, starting on Wednesday, views were dismal.  This morning I am shocked to find that my pageviews for yesterday were nearly double my best day ever on HP. I am hopeful for the holiday season now!

    How was it for you guys?  Is Cyber Monday going to be a good day for HP too?

      It sounds like someone shared one of your articles. Check your "traffic sources" and see if a lot of the visits were coming from Pinterest or Facebook. If they were from Google, I am wrong and hope that trend keeps up for you all during the holiday season.
      Congratulations, by the way!!!

        Hi Dr. Mark - Sadly I think there is a new error in the counter.  Checking Google Analytics, I find that their numbers for my pageviews are in line with a typical Sunday.  GA shows 370 pageviews for the big winner article while HP shows 1000 views.  I expect that my earnings for the day will be more in line with GA and not HP.

        I was fun while it lasted lol. I still feel encouraged!

          Check your earnings then. If HP is paying you a lot more, why bother trusting in that GA site? Enjoy those numbers and that extra money!

      OMGoodness! Glad you asked this question. YES! Wow! Amazing. The last three days have been a major success - all time, record breaking for me! Wow!

      Google loves me again! Hip, hip, hurray!

      The last few days have been nothing special for me, but I did have my best day in a long while in Nov. Earned more than $80 which was a lovely surprise.

      One hub that tends to get a lot more traffic and sales at this time of year is doing ok on the traffic front, but I'm disappointed to see low sales volumes. Hoping they pick up!

      Not my best ever but way better than it was a couple months ago after the huge Panda slap. Things definitely seem like they're looking up *fingers crossed*

    As writing for hubpages has now become my jumping off point, so to speak, I'm hoping some publisher out there will take notice of my abilities and offer to publish my works.  (hint hint for all you publishing companies)...I would love to write a devotional book or a book on Autism geared to the children who suffer with Autism and it's associated disorders.

    Yesterday was one of my best days as well, which makes no sense at all.  It was a holiday weekend.  Weekends are usually slow for me and holiday weekends even slower.  It makes no sense that my hits would double.

      Awesome! So you had the same experience too; congrats!  I wish it was permanent.

    OMG, same here, Solares. I was shocked, this morning when I saw my earnings for yesterday. It was indeed a good day across the board. Congrats to you, too. I hope it keeps up for all of us.

      Hi Jan - Do me a favor and check you GA account.  I am curious if it supports your HP pageviews.  Mine did not!

        I did, Solares, and they appear to line up, off by just a handful of views when I compare HP 24 hr views to GA total views for Sunday. GA is the higher number. I looked under "Behavior Overview," not "Audience Overview."

    My stats are not near what GA says.  My earnings are messed up too!

    I am trying to make money on hubpages but if your not affiliated with an ad sense program it doesn't work right?

      It can but that is the biggest earner for most of us due to the limits on eBay and Amazon links etc.

    Without Adsense you cannot earn anything from HP programs. Your only way to earn is from sales if you have Amazon associate account, Commission Junction, etc.

    It appears that earnings were updated today? Is this so?

      Yes, they were.

    My views for today (Cyber Monday) were up to double their usual so lets hope it is a continuing trend not just a holiday snap!

    Amazon Sales have posted for Cyber Monday - that was this account's best sales day to date!

    I hope you all had good sales too!
