Is it possible for a Hub to go 'viral'

    I am a little concerned about one of my Hubs, it apparently is going 'viral', well viral for me.  I normally get between 300 and 500 visits on this one Hub per day, today all of a sudden my views jumped up to well over 2500.  When I looked at the stats it tells me these views are coming from facebook.  Should I be concerned?  Or should I just sit back and enjoy the new found notoriety?

      What a great question. Sounds like you've hit the target with that Hub. Congrats

    I would say the latter. Someone with a fair amount of FB heft must have shared it. Congratulations!

      I can't seem to find where it came from, it's been 'mellowing' for over a year now and was doing what I considered 'well'...  Now, sheesh!!  Wow...  It is a tad frightening, I'd hate to have it removed or anything.  Maybe it will just stay in the 'climbing' section.

        Does google analytics confirm these views?

    I hope they are real, that would be fantastic smile

    However, recently some of us have experienced huge views from Facebook that weren't real - http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/94788

    So I checked the forum and it appears that their may be a mistake somewhere along the lines.  My Google Analytics do not appear to have noticed or picked up on it..  Well darn.

      Big hugs girl! Those views will come for you, I'm sure of it. I'm just sorry they didn't pan out right now.

      I want to give this bot a good kick up the jacksie, getting folks hopes up like that!

      Still can't figure out the point in a bot making all those views!


      By the way, report it to HP, tell them the hub affected.
