232 new views on a recipe Hub??

    I have a recipe that got 232 views yesterday.  Kind of unusual for me...I check the stats and saw a quilting site (or all places) viewed the Hub.  I went to their site, thinking someone had copied my recipe, and found in their Forum, someone wrote what a wonderful recipe it was.  I was all set to do battle, thinking someone had copied my Hub, but no:  the poster raved about the recipe, and gave me a direct link back!
    I am thrilled, of course; just thought that was unusual.

      Normally when you get a spike in views like this it isn't because someone copied your work, it's because someone shared your work.  Your increased views prove how important it is to share content on active forums and blogs... as long as it is relevant to the conversation.

        You are so right, but to see a Quilting site had linked to my recipe was just amazing to me.

        It's my recipe on how to make a Lemon Meringue Pie in the Microwave.

          I can understand why that would get a lot of views.

          Because of course you want to point out what Hub exactly needs to be copied/ripped-off next....

            Hi, relache.  My brain is a little foggy this AM.  I'm not sure what you mean by your comment.  Thanks.

              Many authors on this site have found that when they indicate what specific content is getting a lot of traffic, that content is then spun or outright stolen shortly thereafter.

              I hope it doesn't happen to you.

                Thanks, relache for clearing that up for me.  When I first saw all that traffic from the one source, I was so afraid my Hub had been copied!
                Thanks for the "head's up" on that.

    That's wonderful.  I occasionally see odd groups have viewed my beading blog.  Groups that have nothing to do with beading.  Gives you a warm fuzzy feeling doesn't it?

      Oh yes, it did!  I was just sure someone had copied my recipe when I first saw this.

    How exciting for you, Mary. That was very nice of the poster to give you a link back.

      I thought so, too.  As of this AM I've had 285 more views from that site for my recipe.  I'd like to thank someone, but I'm not sure that would be appropriate to do.  I'd have to join the quilting group to be able to comment anyway.
