    Every so often I see comments about hubs "going viral".  I'm just curious what people consider when they say a hub has "gone viral".  Is it 100 views a day...1,000 views a day...10,000 views a day, etc...?  Is a hub considered viral when the number of views goes up for a few days and then goes down, or is it viral when the number of views goes up and stays up?

      I don't know if this is viral, but back in 2011 I had a hub that got 5000 views a day for weeks.

      In my opinion 10,000+ would be more so..

        I think 5,000 per day is pretty viral!  I've never been that lucky!

        5,000 hits per day is awesome in my opinion.  Wow.

    In the larger scheme of the web, when something is viral it achieves millions of views in anywhere from a few days to a few weeks.

    I've only "gone viral" once. A band I wrote about linked to my Hub on their official Facebook page so my views blew up huge for a couple of days afterwards... I think I racked up about 9000 views over three or four days. I was ecstatic. I wish it would happen more often. smile

    Relache is correct in that "viral" on the web at large tends to mean a sustained traffic flow that results in millions of visitors over a few weeks. Think of when Gangnam Style took over the web, for an extreme example. It was a viral phenomenon with staying power.

    Like FreddysCat, I use "viral" more imprecisely to refer to times when one of my pages has gotten a great link from a prominent article and/or gotten a flood of social, topical traffic, boosting its traffic up into the thousands per day for a week or two. But this isn't really viral, as it's not hundreds of thousands, nor does it last for more than a few weeks of buzz.

    I guess I'd call it a "social media spike," or something. Even if they're not long-term viral, they pay nicely.

    I really love having a few page on topics that tend to get a traffic spike whenever that topic is in the news again.

    Wow , 5000 a day sounds viral to me.

    Considering that on a good day, the majority of my Hubs get an average of maybe 10 hits per day (if I'm lucky), suddenly getting a few thousand in one shot was certainly "viral" enough for me! big_smile

    Three views. In a single day!!!  Absolute madness.  I was rushed off my feet - getting ready to answer comments (no one bothered) - counting my Adsense (one cent).

    Since then it has gone back to normal but I live in hope.
