60 billion hubpages views in a single day
The Matrix has us alright LOL
Crazy times online indeed
Have you ever been online as a content publisher or writer and wondered where do all these stats come from, also known as web traffic views. Well something very odd is occurring actually here on hubpages of all places.
This isn't a joke or some weird kind of gimmick of sorts this is the real deal folks and it only takes an active eye and a bit of concern for your own lets say HP account, to notice when the number game has went totally apes bananas on you. What I'm speaking on is in terms of receiving either very little web traffic or a steady flow of it, and especially when something doesn't quite add up right.
Well I'm writing this very article to not only address a situation that is happening to not only me, but potentially 1000's of authors here online. Please don't be alarmed when the actual reenactment of this occurrence gets read here on the screen by you the active audience and web surfer types, because it is quite shocking indeed. (If your a fellow hubber reading this very page, well you know what's going on alright and especially if you we're one of the lucky winners to get the digital HP bug of sorts, and that of a sort of new age glitch going around like some overnight viral craze.)
This is the image of my normal traffic graph, but look below it
Numbers are Bogus at times
Now before I unleash such facts here, I would like to state that this has never ever happened here before on this online writers platform, and not that I know of. I been a hubpages writer, for about 18 months going on 19 as of the publishing of this very hub. I wrote a total of 370 hub articles, which 366 of them are officially published. I mention this because what I'm about to tell you all is so freaking bewildering, when I first noticed it my freaking eyes almost popped out. I had to take a triple take look at it, I showed it to my wife even, and my younger female cousin,and even they were astounded.
OK the drum roll please, ....... What I saw there was utterly statistically mind blowing, I had on my hubpages account a grand total of 60,129,549,197 views. "What the freak in the world wide web is going on here" I had thought to myself after I almost dropped my laptop onto the floor. No way, this cannot be true, how does someone go from a total of 120,000+ views that took a whole year and a half to accumulate after intense online battle, communications and networking with others across various platforms etc.. to then one day see this show up on their hubpages account.
This is a more up close and personal view
The digital boat may have sunk who knows or is it hackers?
Something is inherently wrong here, and I was both desperate, and nervous as heck wondering if some little kid in his basement may have somehow hacked into the Hubpages central main frame somewhere in California and silicon valley, where all the Captain Crunch (Code name: John Draper) type hackers are not only born, but breed in matrix prison like structures perhaps. (I never been there in real life, but saw it on some Sci-Fi film movie years back.)
Who knows what could have caused this most obvious glitch of sorts, because no way in hell is my writing online that good to attract 60 billion views. Let alone earn my first million views that may take me a total of 4.2 years here on hubpages, going at the pace my hub traffic is moving today. Yikes, it is both somewhat discouraging to see here on my hubpages account, and yes the glitch is still here as I am typing this text onto this very hub. Oh almost lost my train of thought here, yeah the other part of "both" was yeah, exciting!, why how dazzling it felt to see initially it clutch my eye balls (You know that insane number thingy), man these numbers do indeed drive us crazy don't they.
Did I follow the white rabbit?
Dreams are only dreams folks but glitches are a factor of a truly broken reality
So what did I do next, I thought to myself "Self, if I jump over there on FB and communicate this issue with all of my networking buddies, pals, and gals. Maybe just maybe I might score an answer to this crazy erroneous stats number issue of having billions of views in just a single day."
I decided not to post the massively huge number in fear that maybe the Facebook police might arrest me for doing something like posting the truth, because I'm sure if I had posted what I was truly thinking, such a number could have caused massive pandemonium there. Low and behold I started off very slowly by playing detective and asking nicely one person at a time, what have they experienced there. Then I proceeded to make a single post onto my status there to see if anyone else had such an issue with their stats, but still decided to withhold the actual number in fear that maybe hubpages would think it was me that caused this ridiculous glitch of sorts. Man oh man I was paranoid at that point, but still determined to get down to the bottom of the out of control situation there on my HP account.
You gotta love this dude, Maybe my stats are doing the Gangnam Style dance on Hubpages
Darn PSY and freaking Harlem Shake, here comes the hubpages Glitch LOL
I did actually think about contacting the Hubpages staff or Team, which I never done before mind you, but since they usually post a red message onto our hubpages account area's when something of out of the ordinary occurs I then backed down, and crawled into my turtle shell again.
This time however I really was gonna do it, but since this isolated incident may have been only on my HP account there, I again backed down. Who knew if it was a site wide issue, if so they would have made such an announcement right, and in that case I would have not had to write anything at all, and certainly not this silly glitching hub.
So as an ignorant fool to the not so obvious facts at hand and in play, I gave it a few moments and walla out of nowhere, some cool folks I rarely ever communicate with began popping up onto that specific FB status post, and there it was I saw what I was looking for. Yup another person had the same issue, then and only then did I feel comfortable with letting the cat out of the bag, which brings me here to this very hubs publishing.
This is just for fun people, please don't be alarmed, our stats are going haywire here and people need a sigh of relief for once.
I am still somewhat shook up by seeing this gargantuan number, its something I shall frame and keep for the record books, and as long as I am alive, because I never came across such a chance of seeing this kind of action in my entire life, and even if its just some digits here on the screen, even if its just a glitch that I hope the Hubpages staff is indeed working on, which I'm sure they are.
This may be my only chance to finally experience the dream I wished for, and that is to achieve Billions of views someday on the web, maybe I can be like Mark Zuckerburg, or that cool guy PSY who sky rocketed through the Youtube charts with 2,028,667,341 views on his Youtube channel as of today. Holy smoke's is this a dream, can someone slap me off of my computer chair, man oh man I need to wake up from wonderland here, or maybe I'm still trapped in The Matrix with NEO and the rest of them cyber goons. LMFAO, maybe I have made it to viral heaven after all, who knows, please just fix this thing so I can quit playing around here and start back dreaming again. Hah!
Oh I almost forgot about the Harlem Shake viral craze (is that like a soft drink you get in the summer time), isn't that one a Glitch too. Man they need to fix it fast, we are getting tired of seeing them crazies crunch out ridiculous numbers for pure insanity here in cyber space.
