Have you seen this traffic spike - Cause ??? Looks like Mobile generated, maybe HP posted huge pile of mobile pages on the site???
Wow that is huge ! Wasn't any of my hubs though.
That may not be a spike of genuine traffic and bots have hit HubPages before. If traffic doesn't sustain an upward trend for the week, it was probably a bot. We'll wait and see.
I too will sound grave and important. Yes! We must wait and see what transpires in the short and medium term.
In the meantime, why not answer a question that can be cleared up immediately?
Which of Mark Ewbie's hubs do you consider to be of poor quality?
http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/118870? … ost2514744
Most of that spike is from a couple of hubs that became very popular on Facebook on Friday. There is still some residual effect today, but it's starting to wane.
Thanks for the explanation. Congratulations to the Hubbers who got some great traffic!
"Great" traffic? When just a couple of hubs are seeing 750,000 visits per day, "great" is far too weak a word.
Yes. Rather envious. If they have HP ads that should mean
750 times 5 or 6 dollars roughly
Which equals around 4000 dollars!
That's visits, not impressions. Do you understand the difference?
It's the equivalent of the lottery - the odds are low, but the payouts are huge.
It's social traffic and in my experience, the CPM is a lot lower than search engine traffic brings. Even so, it must be a tidy sum - I suppose that's why the earnings stats are delayed. Wonder who it is that got those marvellous traffic spikes?
I bet it was you and you are just being shy.
No, I've got a hub doing well on Facebook just now, but not that well!
We need to have a little chat about your Aunt Mollie sometime. There seems to be an impression that WF and Aunt Mollie are the same person.
Shall I open a new thread?
I think you should quit stalking my relatives and open a new hobby.
This may be true, I don't get much social traffic and I don't know how HP ads are set up in that respect.
I thought it was the same though. Pay per view mostly and some income from actual clicks.
While it would be possible to pick ads based on the source of the visit, it doesn't seem particularly profitable to do so for the advertiser. They cannot really tell just why a visit is occurring - whether out of interest in a topic or interest in a product (review maybe).
On the other hand, most FB links seem to be to hubs of an opinion type, or perhaps recipes or such. Those will not pay nearly as well as others that give an advertiser an good opportunity to sell something. In that manner, visitors from FB might be considered to pay less, although the reason is not that they came from FB.
That's amazing! I see the HP US ranking rose from 74 last week to 65.
Wow, that's brilliant. You're right, the newly optimized mobiles design is probably something to do with it, plus all those seasonal hubs people have written to cash in on the annual festival of shopping that is Christmas.
If you switch it to global pageviews, it's 2,621,776 with 1,474,368 mobile web views for Dec. 13. WTG HP!
I think I may have found one of the hubs that went viral.
http://brownie83.hubpages.com/hub/10-Th … ou-to-Know
I've had a sudden spike of 30 hits to a hub that never saw traffic from day one, all from this hub where it is linked. With 256k Facebook likes, it is a definite possibility!
I think you're on to something. That Hub had a large number of comments from non-Hubbers when the traffic spike was noticed.
P.S. It's a great Hub, by the way.
Yup, look at the recent comments. They're just flowing in.
EDIT: Writerfox already pointed this out
I hope for their sake they don't post their viral hubs in the forums.
That traffic is on a roll; it increased traffic to HP another 1% yesterday:
Obviously, the 'impressions' thing was just another Writer Fox misdirection and we will never get a clarification or an apology.
Anyway I will have to get into the honesty online thing another day. One of the cats has disappeared, apparently.
I would think her stats would be rewarding enough! Looking at her activity, two days ago she got her 10,000 views award. Then 17 hours ago she hit 1M. Fantastic!
Health hubs pay really well so even at a lower rate she must be coining it in, if she's signed up of course.
That is insane. She really hit a nerve with that one! I wonder if she even knows! A lot of people just write and never check their stats, etc. I shared it on FB and it was immediately shared by one of my relatives who works in the medical profession.
I think it's possible that she doesn't know because she only has seven Hubs and no activity in three months. I sent her an email a few hours ago just to let her know. I think she's about to get a happy surprise.
What a wonderful Christmas present for her! Amazing!
I think she's still getting a ton of views. Probably most of the 1/4 million view increase yesterday went to that Hub. She's making a small fortune for a Hub
I think I'm in the lower half as well but glad to see some are spiking like that. Good for you and Merry Christmas.
How are you folks seeing these figures? My stats and money have been stalled for quite some time. However, prior to that happening, although my traffic has shown practically no increases, my CPMs have gone through the roof the past few weeks! Too bad I can't get those things to coordinate!!!
Here's the latest from the HP blog. As of Dec. 18, she had over two million views. Amazing what one hub did for this lucky hubber! Congrats to Kelly, aka brownie83!

Hi,Is it possible that the time right after a big event such as Black Friday actually has less (much less...) search engine traffic than normal?Because this is what I am seeing for my hubs... had a nice spike, now big crash. Am lower than 4 days ago now.
by Dale Hyde 6 years ago
I am experiencing an overall average off 66 percent less page views per day, for seven days versus a week previous and for the past two months. Such a huge drop in page views makes me think that Google has tuned up something again. I do know that I don't have the time and energy to keep...

I have recently noticed a huge decline in traffic for my hubs. Is it only with me or everyone is having the same experience these days. Has there been any change in Google search. 90% of my traffic is organic and comes from Google search...all help is appreciated.

Just checked it on Alexa.com, and realized which (alleged) effect the Panda updates of Google has on traffic. Although I'm still happy with the traffic my Hubs have, are the foundations increasingly eroding. Are there any ideas to change this trend? http://www.alexa.com/siteinfo/hubpages.com

A little while ago I had a spike of traffic that came from Google Organic searches. Every single one of my hubs had a spike that day, then slowly my views plummeted. Each day there were fewer and fewer views from organic search. I still have a little bit of organic traffic, but it is back to...

Many people writing different things. But I and I'm sure that many other people would like to know the potential of hubpages. Thanks for answers.
