I was wondering... as a writer I've written a lot of books on areas like eBay sales etc, and there is a definite pattern to that in terms of thebest time of day and day to end an auction.
I'm also an Amazon reseller, and I know how to work their system to maximise sales. Yes it's theoretically not proven according to Amazon, but I know darned well if I list items in a certain pattern of timings, my sales of ALL items (even the ones that have been on there for 4 years without selling) go UP. Period.
So, moseying down to the store this afternoon,I started to wonder if there was a "best" time of day or day of the week to post new hubs?
I posted one recntly that had 233 hits within 45 minutes - Now, was that the FANTASTIC topic or was it simply that I hit a time and day when a max number of people were online therefore best time to hit stumble, digg etc with a new hub...
I'd be interested in any thoughts. Or maybe I'm just being Mrs Spock again... trying to find logic where none exists.
if you want to catch the best possible Hubbing time for publishing new hubs (most traffic) you need to stick with the US time, starting with EAST time and on...(that's our time + 5 hours and on...)
I know that you are making very nice and very professional hubs, but posting links here means 'spamming'...imagine if all of us would be doing this...
Money-wise, the initial spike of traffic (if any) is absolutely irrelevant. All that traffic comes from HP colleagues, who do not click your ads.
PS And yeah, I agree with solarshingles about you posting link here... just remove it if you still can edit your post
It's not uncommon for a surge of traffic after recently submitting a hub to stumble or something like that. It's the longterm traffic you want not necessarily the immediate traffic.
One of my hits got a hug surge from Google for one day, something like 800 views. That happens rarely for me though.
Over 200 hits in 45 minutes?! Wow! Most of my hubs have never seen 200 hits in their entire existence I don't get as much traffic as most of you super hubbers
I've often wondered when the best time is to publish a hub too. It seems like I get more traffic from other hubbers if I publish on a weekday rather than a weekend. I don't know if that's true for everyone else or not. Does anyone else have any theories?
Yeah, one of my hubs got like 240 one day, but then went back to normal. Curiously, all the hits came from yahoo uk. I hoped to keep up those stats but it never happened again
What makes you think it all happened in 45 minutes? Aren't the stats showing per day?
Literally, I posted, went and made a drink, let the dogs out, went and showed by other half the hub, and he clicked to view my account stats and we saw the numbers. I'm not sure even 45 mins had gone past!
The hub's done ok since but nothing even approaching that number. I guess it must have been instant passround at stumble etc then nada!

I'm looking for new places besides Facebook, Twitter, Digg and Reddit to post hubs that will generate views. Any ideas?

If you haven't yet tried posting your HubPages articles to this site - you should do so today and see if it boosts your traffic - I've had great success with this over the last 2 days.

One of my hubs recently got a small flurry of hits from stumbleupon.com. Can someone tell me how and why that occurred on that hub -- and not on any other? Are you supposed to be signed up such groups to draw their...

I was thinking of joining the stumbleupon website, to see if I could generate some traffic. I stopped there for a few mintues, it really doesn't seem much different than hubpages. It is kind of like Yahoo groups. I was...

I've heard that social bookmarking sites like digg, reddit and stumbleupon are a great way to generate a ton of traffic fast. I haven't tried them though... Is it against HubPages rules to do so?
