Congratulations. How wonderful. Just to be on the safe side, you may want to look at the traffic sources for this skyrocketing hub. This happened to me a couple of times and it was because of an improper link to a traffic generating site that I did not originate. Just fyi. It resulted in a violation for me and I got a warning from HP. Peg
hahahaha. it shows how a lot of people are into harem anime. Lots of ecchi lovers nowadays. Congratulations by the way. By the way, you should check the source of that massive traffic. Sometimes, it comes from sketchy sources, which then ruins the initial excitement.
Congrats! This happened to me a few weeks ago when one of my hubs got 4,000 views in three days...but I know mine came from the fact that someone on FB saw it, liked it, shared it, and so on and so forth. Wish it would happen more often!
I got a small one again yesterday when an article that usually only gets about 20 views a day suddenly got 250! Couldn't figure that one out...but as my ol' mammy always told me..."never look a gift horse in the mouth!"
That is very cool. Like others have said there have been glitches. But you could check it with Google Analytics, see if stats there are the same. Also, you could check this: http://www.likeexplorer.com/ to see if it's being shared on social media. It's a cool tool. a lot of times if you are getting a lot of visits it's because a lot of people are sharing your article.
Not to burst your bubble, but I'm seeing a lot of this lately. A hub that gets 20 views per day suddenly gets a thousand, for a day or two. Things settle back down and another hub repeats the process in a few days. I've seen it at least a half dozen times lately.
They aren't showing up in the impressions, though, and aren't producing income; just inflated traffic figures. I'd be interested in knowing what is happening as well.
I had a hub last week showing 1100 views for the 24 hour period, yet those views were not substantiated in GA (GA showed 350), and I did not get paid for approximately 800 of those views, so it was very odd to me.
Also, I am experiencing a series of small spikes for the day rolling randomly through my hubs that settle back to normal, but again GA does not see those spikes.
joween18, congratulations. It all depends on the reason, so check your traffic sources. I've had big jumps caused by a specific event - the death of the subject of my article, for example - or just by a jump in page rank after an update. Most, like wilderness says, are spikes, but not all of them. I'd check my sources and see if I could duplicate whatever caused it, assuming your can figure it out.
Congratulations. It could mean that someone popular shared the the hub in with their social network. I would check the traffic sources of the particular hub. We (the site) have had a couple of hubs this year that had each had a massive spike this year - so big in fact, that you could see the spike site wide. I hope yours continues to grow that big.
I'm not an SEO expert by any means, but I have started to read one SEO site, which is reporting today a recovery of some of the Penguin-hit sites. Here is the link. Let's hope this is what we're seeing.
All this traffic is amazing! Unfortunately, I have never come close to those numbers with any of my hubs. I do have one that gives me consistent good traffic and I wish I knew the "secret" of why that particular hub gets 90% of my hub traffic. I do love writing though and have a dream to start a food blog with it's own domain about a year from now. Great job everyone!
I thought I knew the answer to this question. But something interesting happened in the last week which I found it hard to explain. I'd be interested to hear opinions.I have a hub which is nine months old and had just...
I recently visited a hub which left me perplexed. The hubber made a table of contents which were all links back to the same page. So in essence, the page was just reloading itself. Normally when I see a hyperlink it...
Ever since the switch to subdomains, I have seen specific subdomain names listed on the traffic stats for individual Hubs; and on the Traffic Sources Page, the numbers for HubPages have seemed to decline...
Possibly I overlooked the answer to this question in the forums, but I have noticed over the past three weeks at least, a significant drop of at least half of my traffic views during this period. And of course a...
