Absolute best I've ever seen.

Uniques / Page Views Per Second
Starting to slack off now. I saw it spike at 20K unique visitors and 100+ page views per second.
It's probably that new hub I wrote... I knew it would be huge but I didn't realize it would bring us all fame and fortune. you're welcome.
Looks like the spike came from Ashburn, Virginia.
I did not know HubPages had a real-time stats. Very interesting!
It is probably due to HP opening up the flood gates and featuring a lot more hubs. Adding thousands of pages at once to the G index is likely to trigger spikes.
Traffic shooting back up again.
And two-thirds of it really is from Ashburn, VA. That place really is close to Washington DC...
I'm wondering if Langley has a subsidiary in Ashburn...
oop! You lost me... that's ok... I knew I was out of my league as soon as I saw the moving graph.
The total number of households in Ashburn, Virginia, is 22,555. According to that Quantcast information, half of them are on HubPages right now. Very strange. There is a big debate going on there now about Obamacare.
They are probably looking for hubs to steal.
Whatever is going on, traffic now dropping like a rock. I guess an Obamacare hub got themselves a spike.
I couldn't find anything that would attract that much attention. There is a Gubernatorial race with an election on November 5th and a big debate this Thursday. Candidates are: Republican Ken Cuccinelli, Democrat Terry McAuliffe and Libertarian Robert Sarvis. I checked their names, too, on HP and didn't find any recent activity on Hubs. ??????????
I think it had to have been a traffic scam. Ashburn is an upscale community with a six-figure median income and even a major news event (think: hurricane, earthquake, terrorist attack) would not attract half of the households to the same website at the same time. And notice how quickly all that traffic just vanished. A normal, legitimate traffic spike would trail off not just vaporize.
I'm going with Langley probing HubPages for recalcitrant Hubbers.
Well, it wouldn't need 11,000 unique IP addresses to do that.
It could be Amazon.com:
I think you've actually found the real reason!
This type of thing is pretty common. We typically block the IPs.
Very interesting. After watching one of my puppy hubs (seriously - it was a puppy hub) go viral (for me) this week with 120 viewers on at any given time for a while, I was wondering how many people visit HubPages. I was wondering how small a part my measly 120 viewers played in HubPages bigger picture. Here is my answer!! Thanks Mr. P.

I just received a pleasant surprise while checking my stats, which I admit I do more often than I should. But one of my best performing hubs got 10 times the amount of traffic it usually receives, from 200-300 to over 3300. This has happened before but I figure it was a share that begot more...

For a good number of weeks my hubber score has hovered around the 100 mark. Two days ago it started falling, and as I write this, it is down to 89! If this keeps up, it will be 0 in a week! No rhyme or reason to it, but it leaves me wondering why this is happening. I know...

What are you going to do if you are banned from hubpages?
by Kate Swanson 5 years ago
I think there is an urgent need to change the term "engagement" to "traffic". The reason? The new "Not Featured - engagement" feature has been in place only a few days, and already we're seeing posts on the forums from upset Hubbers.I can understand that...

How do you prove something is morally right or wrong without using the Bible or appealing to God?
