    I have a hub about the Dark Net for beginners which is at the top of google search results and normally gets a few hundred visitors per day. Last night I noticed the TV news was running reports about the Dark Net saying the number of people using it to buy illegal drugs had gone up a lot in the last year, then when I logged in to hubpages this morning I'm seeing over 9000 visitors in 24 hours to that one hub! Wow! Never had a traffic surge like this before.

    Thanks TV news!

    Congrats! It's a wonderful feeling when one of your Hubs suddenly takes off like that... I wish it would happen more often.... smile

    I had a similar traffic bump this week (on a slightly smaller scale than yours) on my "shark movies" hub due to the hype surrounding the premiere of "Sharknado 2." Now that the movie has aired, the views on that Hub are already dropping back to normal, comatose levels but it was nice while it lasted. big_smile

    Thanks guys, I'm sure it will go back to normal quite quickly but it was super exciting to see such a massive number, and I'm really looking forward to seeing what my earnings look like big_smile

    Thank you all for your kind words, and Susi10 - yes it is kind of encouraging that so many people actually take the time to research about something they see on TV and don't know much about.
