Record attempt at the lowest number of hits for a Hub

    I have just published a Hub called 'Successfully Right a Hub Nobody Wants to Reed'.

    This is a record attempt to get the lowest ever hits on hub ever.  Please don't click on it.  It's currently on '0' and I want to try keep it that way until the 1st April.

    Seriously, this is the most uninteresting hub ever written and not worth your time or eyeball power on a totally boring and fact-less hub.

    I will be happy if it get banned as it will keep the numbers right down....

    Please ignore this forum post

    Thank you

      I'm so devious a fellow that I'm tempted to see just how uninteresting this one could be.  Could I just book mark it, and read it, or try to read it when I really need to go to sleep???

      Hey, I happen to know that my "best" hubs always bore people to sleep, my numbers pretty well prove that too.

      Are you related to Brian Griffin? I'll make a crappy book in 3 hours and it will totally bomb. Then surprise! It becomes a best seller! Sneaky trick.

      It's like the, you don't want to look in that dark basement, there is something really ugly and unappealing down there in the basement toilet! So, how many people do you think will want to go down and have a peek?

      Tickets to go down into the scary basement $5.00!

    Thanks for the heads up. I will certainly avoid reading your hub. If I wanted to read dull, boring hubs, I would just read my own. Please let me know whenever you write a meaningless hub so I will know what not to read. Perhaps you should write a hub on how to un-promote a hub. I’d love to not read it.

      True to my word, I have enjoyed not reading your hub.  Feel free to not read my hubs as well.

    Although I wouldn't click it, but if that was your intention then you should have avoided posting it in forums.

    I just went back to your Hub to see if you'd replied to any of your comments, but you haven't yet. I'll keep going back to check. smile

        Just saw it.
        Oops - have to go back to make a little correction to the comment I just left ...

          Thought you might - be more careful this time.  The hit levels are rising and the hits are getting dangerously close to a genuine Hub I have with low level of hits called 'Re-searching Your Railway' - another stunner of a popular hub. 

          I excel in producing Hubs that people avoid reading !

    I used "curl" to bring the hub down to my Mac to read it with File->Open. That won't trigger any count in your stats, so I hope that helps.

    Oops.  I should have used Lynx to read it.  The script will still record.  My bad, so sorry.

    Failed - the hub now has more hits my 'Re-searching Your Railway' hub.... !!

    Going to do another and publish it, and not tell a living sole and see how long it can stay at zero.. wink

        No you won't - you have to find it first.  A needle in a haystack job !

        Although my latest hub on the Glyn Valley Tramway in Wales is set to be another stunner in terms of the expected number of hits - double figures will be a bonus..

      Probably - but its a bit of fun all the same, which what life is all about...

      I am slow starter and it will take me years to reach your 200,000 hits (big congrats by the way on that one too)  smile smile smile

        I wholeheartedly agree.  Life is an awfully short journey.

        Thanks very much. smile

    'Successfully Right a Hub Nobody Wants to Reed' hub has reached 101 hits....  So much for the lowest number of hits.

    Seems if you put don't read this ever - people have to look.  Next time will have ask to read this and that should keep the numbers down wink
