Well, I very happy and totally confused at the same time.
I have been here just two months, posted 50+ hubs, and well was expecting a slow start and build up of traffic, which was true until last Monday, when one of my Hubs went crazy. It went from about 300 hits to a massive 20,000 in seven days - is this normal? What did I do?
Of course, I wish to thank everybody that clicked on that page - I am most grateful for two reasons - first, I have already reached my first AdSense payment threshold, months before I was expecting too. Second, it gives you faith to carry on writing and adding Hubs.
I wish I knew why the reason this particular Hub was so successful as I would like to both replicate it and share it with other hubbers.
it comes with learning by experience! I made the mistake once and soon found it copied on a couple different sites, along with hubs written on the same topic. there are unfortunately those who search forums for exactly these kind of threads. It's hard not to share successes, and certainly you can, just keep some things secret. you will do very well with your writing.
lyndre, I don't think anyone was specifically addressing you. usually these people never post in the forums, they watch from a distance.
first of all, a huge congrats! I knew after reading one of your hubs when you first joined that you were going to do very well. You're an excellent writer, you have great titles and search friendly topics. I don't know which one went viral, but I can imagine a couple of them with those titles.
look at your hub metrics to see search terms used to find your hub and look at google analytics. congrats! keep up the great work.
Maybe I was a bit naive asking the hub.I did this in complete innocence and just curiousity. I do not like the accusation from other hubbers that I would steal your work. Maybe I still have my L plates on also Anyway back to the point.Congrats I think you just managed to catch the right topic at the right time well done
There were no accusations that YOU would steal his work, this is a public forum, these threads get read hundreds of times. If he disclosed a high money Hubpage on this forum it would get stolen, end of.
Oh well - You live and learn as they say - fortunately, its a hub with a extremely short shelf life, and could be completely out of date and totally worthless in a week or perhaps a fews days or even tomorrow. I would class it as a 'shooting star' hub.
Hey Midnight The facts are you still got there. All you have to do is find another hot topic. Some hubbers myself included take months and years yo get 20,000 hits.So give yourself a big pat on the back.
Well, everything is back to normal yesterday and today after that fantastic week. The hub is back down to its usual 45 hits per day. Not sure where the gold rush came from and where it went to, but I am grateful all the same as it has given me a taste of what can happen on here - it gives you a boost to do more.
All I need to do now is find another one to fly. Although, I am definitely sure that its not the hub about Kate Middleton's royal wedding dress or the other one 'Top Tips for Calling Your Bank', both have just scrapped into double figures - Time for another celebration me thinks !!!
Nice one. I thought maybe I'd write about stuff that happens in my life, but as nothing much has happened since 1973 it's all a bit out of date now. And I can't remember enough to do the nostalgia thing.
I have started a hub entitle "How to Successfully Write Hubs That Nobody Ever Reads" - I will be upset if it get more than 10 hits....
1973 was a great year for me - found my first love, kissed a girl passionately on the lips for the first time, got to wear long trousers, it was long hot summer, great music, but slightly confusing as I kept getting this strangle feeling in my pants which use to swell into a small lump - how strange and embarrassing....

I am finally starting to see the traffic and some benefits of the advice I have been given along with some research. Thanks to everyone who has given me super advice on how to make my hubs stand out and draw traffic.
