I have a hub out there that only had about 6-10 hits a day. All of a sudden, goes up to over 600. Stats say it's coming from facebook, m.facebook, & t.co, which is connected to Twitter. I haven't been sharing it at all. A large bunch of the hits coming from m.facebook is one of my FB friends. It just seems like a huge jump for a nothing hub to go crazy.
I'm afraid it will look like I have done something to get more clicks unfairly. I just don't want to be cut off when I don't know what the heck is going on with it.
This has happened to me on several occasions. Overall it is not a bad thing. Views on your hub is not like clicks on Google ads. An increase in views is a good thing, however a sudden increase in Google ad clicks is not, lol.
Enjoy the surge. Over time I have been able to track several surges back to where the hub was featured on some related page that had the Twitter and Facebook share options there.
Most likely other people are sharing it, which is good.
Sounds like a good thing to me! It's like going viral on a small scale! I had one of my hubs shared on Facebook and got close to 400 likes in 24 hours and I don't put any of my hubs on Facebook so it was a pleasant surprise! I don't think you will be penalized for it. Enjoy the boost in traffic!

The CPM rates are up, and so is traffic, by quite a margin.Have you guys been experiencing the same?

When a hub is usually shared on Facebook, the photos in the hub appear as thumbnail, but now, the thumbnail is not working. Why? Without the thumbnail the link is not very attractive.

I've noticed something kinda weird, after I write something, I put it on Facebook, because I've worked hard on it, and letting everyone I know that I have written a new hub. Do they or even even disliked it or leave...

At the beginning of December my traffic was down by around 60%. My hubs were in the same position in the SERPs as they had been previously, so the whole situation was rather odd. Today however, my traffic is up to pre...
