One of my hubs that was getting around 30 hits per day suddenly jumped to almost 3000 hits yesterday. I haven't shared it recently, and according to the hub stats, the traffic must have come from Google. I thought this must be a mistake, but my earnings say I earned 5 dollars yesterday (about 5 times what I'm used to). The earnings aren't finalized yet, but that makes it seem like more than a stat error. Should I be celebrating?
It happens... You may have gotten lucky and a visitor linked to your hub or shared it and it has gone viral. I had one that did that once and was getting nearly 16,000 vies a day for nearly a month, but then it was gone almost as fast as it came. Enjoy it while it lasts.
Blimey 16k is a lot! I hope my hub stays this way for a month. Sure would be nice to have that rolling in each day. I just wish the stat info would update more regularly. I'm not sure how up to date the stats within the hub are (traffic sources), but only the Google numbers are big enough to explain it (so far), which doesn't make much sense to me. Google has been kicking me in the butt lately. Maybe it's a g+ share... hmm, possible.
My Dad said it was a "clickbomber" and the earnings will be taken away. Forever the pessimist. They're not finalized yet, so it's possible.
Enjoy it while it lasts. It's nice to get a sudden boost out of nowhere. I wish it would happen more often.
I say celebrate. If it were a glitch, others may have seen similar things, like a few months ago when several hubbers had millions of views. I hope for you that it's the real deal.
Lucky you, I will be lucky if I get 30 hits per day on one hub. Well done I say and celebrate.
I had that happen once. A hub spiked at 500+ hits one day, then dropped down to it's normal at that point. You'll celebrate each time it happens too!
I've had boosts like that before, but nothing like this. Those times could be attributed to events in the news. It's horrible to get a boost whenever there's a gun massacre in America, but my gun control hub does well at those times. I have a Hillary Clinton hub that does well whenever she's embroiled in a scandal, which seems to happen on an annual basis!
I had one hub with photos which received more than 600 viewings on Pinterest in just a couple of weeks as a result of sharing (no other hub has received anything like that many in more than a year) but sadly it didn't translate into page viewings - just image viewings. I guess it's an example of how pages can go viral if the quality or the luck is there. We all live in hope.
I can't contribute any information except don't analyse too much and just enjoy (and send whoever shared it along to my hubs!)
It is normal, I had a two day burst on one hub this week. The subject was in the news.

So the other day I was looking for a vegetarian gravy recipe. I decided to type my google search as 'hubpages vegetarian gravy recipe' to do some random hubber a favour and give them a viewing, which I also left open on my laptop in the kitchen for a good 15 minutes, thereby doing them another...

Is there a problem with Stats? My viewings have jumped off the scale today, and I must be close to 2000 more viewings than normal, (gaining about 150 more per hour). This is way above normal, and lately although I have not lost (and in fact have gained) traffic following the subdomain changeover,...

Just wondering if anyone knows exactly when the statistics for hub views are supposed to start over for a new day.It is almost ten o'clock at night eastern time when I am, and I just noticed that the views I had a few hours ago are considerably different.

HiI have 2 questions:1. What is the exact time that a daily hubpages cycle starts and finishes in terms of calculating viewings for that day and earnings?2. How does it work in terms of seeing what your current daily viewings are? I'm sure sometimes throughout the day, the daily viewings for each...

I think it is related to images being used for the HUB ads and Google ads. When I turned off the Hub ads my adsense revenue rose significantly. I think it is because the block of adsense ads to the right of the column of text below the title returned to text based rather than image based. I think...
