Hubs go around the world

Updated on August 30, 2012

As hubbers, you understand that feeling when you check on your page views and realize that your numbers doubled in one day. If you are like me, you check on the hubs that have received a major jump to see where the views are coming from. Sometimes it's just search engines and the increase is due to your hub getting a better page ranking and appearing closer to the top. However, sometimes you get an unexpected website posting a link your hub.

I have had good days, great days and bad days just like everyone on HubPages and I too have a favorite topic to write on. Today, my views for one hub were double what they average and I got excited. So, I checked on the sources to see just where the views were coming from. To my surprise, the extra views were all coming from one site, a news website in Manitoba, Canada. Upon further research I found out that a city in Manitoba is currently going through a political push to ban American Pit Bull Terriers and one of their members posted a link to one of my hubs in the comments section. This is proof that hubs go around the world, especially those that are universal in information.

Google It!

I decided to Google a phrase that pertains to my article but was broad enough to pull up a whole slue of other webpages. To my amazement and joy, the hub that was linked was number 5 on the list. Then I made my search a little broader with wording and it was number 8.

Taking the time to add a few extra Tags to your hubs, refining the titles and making sure your information is accurate is well worth the time and effort. I am fortunate enough to have passion for a very universal topic that is not only a self sustaining topic but for right now is a hot button issue all over the world. By taking a problem that I once viewed as a local issue and making it less localized and more informational I have been able to not only reach readers in the United States but also in the United Kingdom, Australia and now Manitoba, Canada.

      Hello. Nice hub with good information.

      One time I had 1 of my hubs in number 3 on google search. But not anymore :(

      That's great news! Mine too doubles at times. But mostly come from the search engine. Unfortunately, none so far has linked my hubs from their sites/blogs.

      But, I'm hopeful it will happen next time. :)
