I came on my profile this evening, with about 8 views in the entire day, suddenly, I have gained around 120 views in about 20 minutes, traffic says it's all from hubpages... any explanation?
Maybe it was just an coincidence or maybe hubpages had a glitch and just updated? Don't know
You are actively on the network, either reading hubs or commenting on hubs or in the forum.
So, people are looking you up, because your activity makes them aware you are on your account presently. If you're active in the community, then it drives up traffic.
Prime example: I'm over 8000 posts in the forum and 99% of my traffic is from HubPages or Hubbers visiting. I have very little traffic that comes from other sources, because I'm not actively created backlinks to other places. And, I don't post my stuff anywhere or advertise.
However, my page views have increasingly getting better as time goes on. I am about to pass the 5000 view mark, shortly.
I hope that I helped.
My dashboard is showing an unusual number of red arrows this evening. Last I counted I had 10, with 1 or 2 double arrows. I never have that many. The stats show the traffic is coming from google, not hubpages, though. Many of the pages are not even Christmas gift type hubs, they are birthday party hubs. However, I don't think it is a glitch since it is not all of my hubs. Last time there was a traffic glitch it was across the board red arrows.
I have also noticed a jump up -- several red arrows. Yet I also noticed that for the two previous days traffic was much slower. Any connection? I have no idea. Glitch?
I think it is a glitch, because an article I wrote (and didn't publish) today has 19 views, and I didn't even look at a preview.
I dont think its legit...Im up 200+ hits than the norm, including hubs that really dont get traffic, adsense tracking isnt reflecting this increase
If you are using Google Analytics in your Hubs, examine the report. It will show you where the traffic is coming from and seems to be more accurate that the HubPages stats.
I'm up 400+ over norm all of a sudden - must be a glitch...
I don't know if this is a glitch. My views are definately up and so is my adsense!
It's also reallllllly cold outside most places.. so people are surfin the net

HP has always said do evergreen hubs. Politics is certainly not evergreen. it has a short "shelf-life" if it is about a current event. And since I would mostly write about U.S. politics, they might have...

Many people have asked how the new sites are performing so far. The latest Newsletter provides a general overview, but I'd also like to invite Hubbers who have had Hubs moved to discuss your experiences here. Overall,...

I've been on HP all day, basically and have been checking my stats. Within the last hour hour or so one of my hubs have jumped from less than 10 views to 566 views all from within my subdomain. This is weird and may be...

For the first time since I can recall, I see straight zeroes for traffic. I have 88 hubs published and all of them show 0 views. Really? Something is not right. I've never had this.

My traffic is the highest ever, red arrows abound! While I think this is awesome (if it's real), I'm wondering if it is some reporting error? How is everyone's traffic doing?
