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?
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.
I hope they are real, that would be fantastic
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.

So, I just logged in after almost 18 hours without power, to discover that my article on The Woodmen's Circle Home is getting slammed with traffic. It usually gets under 100 views in a day. So far today, Google...

Reaching a million views on HubPages has taken me a very long time. It hasn't been as easy as reaching such a milestone on an article in an online magazine or on a niche or business website, so that should really make...

I just shared the crap out of a Hub I wrote that I think is pretty good (the one on longevity called "The First Person to Live to Be 200 Years Old is Alive Today"), and it seems to be a home run. In just...

As per the new changes HubPages has made, I was required to make a few changes to the amount of Amazon products I was showing. I lowered the amount of products to lower than an average of 1 per 50 words on the hubs that...
