I published a Hub 2 years ago.
And ever since it has had a small average of hits. But now in the past 2 days it has had half the hits that it has ever had.
I'm obviously very happy but curious about the sudden explosion for no apparent reason.
How many other folk have experienced this and what's the reason do you think?
I think it's a combination of a Hub aging and getting crawled and indexed and the somewhat unpredictable nature of what people search for. In other words, it's had time to gain traction and also, for whatever reason, people are searching the keywords in that Hub. Educated guess. But it seems reasonable to me.
Check your traffic sources. I had a small surge recently on one of my hubs, and it looks like it was coming from yahoo mail. I am guessing someone shared a link to my hub when they were discussing something. Hopefully they were saying good things!
Unfortunately, this type of surge is only temporary.
Yep. Fell off the cliff on day 3. The word 'plummet' springs to mind. But it was nice while it lasted.
Message boards often account for that kind of traffic surge too. Some kind soul posted a link to my article on Nitromater.com with a "hey, I like this" and nothing more... resulted in over 500 hits in two days. I wanted to send them a thank you card *lol*

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 December levels and climbing. Anyone else experiencing a surge in traffic?

Hi there,On Monday I had 75 hubs unfeatured. I edited them and promoted them so they're fine now.But the problem is that, although some had low traffic, others had plenty. Marisa in another forum suggested that maybe the redirects aren't counted towards the engagement tally? This makes sense as...

Optimizing Hubs: how many hubs do you have that get 100 page views a day?I thought I was doing well until I read the latest exhortation from HP staff to analyse my hubs. Evidently a hub is only thought to be doing well if it gets 100 ‘hits’ a day. Uh-oh!Is everyone else getting this number of...
