Weird Traffic surge to one of my hubs, may be a glitch

    I've been on HP all day, basically and have been checking my stats. Within the last hour hour or so one of my hubs have jumped from less than 10 views to 566 views all from within my subdomain. This is weird and may be a glitch of some sort. There are 562 visitors from cardisa dot hubpages dot com.

      Are you talking about your stats on HubPages or Google Analytics (views)?
      There is a thread going regarding the latter here.

        Not the analytics but right here on HP on the stats page. The views to the particular hub have jumped to over 700 now. When I go to the hub and check the source the traffic is coming from cardisa.hubpages,com

          It could be that someone linked to your profile and it really is getting that much traffic.
          What is the Hub title or URL?

            I've never seen that before. I mean so much traffic from the subdomain itself, so it's weird to me.

              Hiya, I was going to ask which one it was, because it happens to one of mine occasionally. mine was about an art theft, long story, but when the program is shown around the world it goes nuts!

                A hub of mine went wild a few weeks ago and I found out someone linked it to a search directory or something. I was scared and unpublished the hub for a while to break the link. That hubs is getting good traffic now...weird. This hub has never been noticed before...lol

                  They do not always build their reputations immediately, sometimes it may take a while.

              A Hub with that title sounds to me like it would get a lot of views. If not to leave comments at least to read it.

                It is a good hub but hasn't gotten the attention yet, you know some hubs take a while to get going. I kinda find it strange when the jump is so sudden though, from 6 - 784 views in one day. The traffic source is also the issue for me. But as Matt said, maybe someone linked to my profile. smile

              It is the first result on the Google SERPs page if I search for ""Violence Statistics Initiations Rituals and Practices".

                That's the rest of my title...wow, I didn't check. Does that explain the sudden surge from cardisa.hubpages,com?

                  The Hub (and your profile) both do rather well for that search string, so that could explain the sudden uptick in views.
                  Sound like good news to me!

                    Thanks Matthew, I hope so . I hope it's not a bot or anything. I did send an email to team to have the source reviewed...lol. I hope you guys aren't annoyed with me smile
