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!
Well deserved! Congratulations on the bump in traffic!
Kudos! You deserved that traffic --- the hub is still informative after that long, trying the browser:)
Congrats! It's a wonderful feeling when one of your Hubs suddenly takes off like that... I wish it would happen more often....
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.
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
Congrats! That's a great achievement! It's always good to hear about people being successful with their writing.
Oh, that is such good news! Good for you, electronician, way to go . . . viral!
Way to go! Congrats to you, electronician. That's amazing. It's nice to see that people always look for more info after they watch a TV program.
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.

Okay, this forum is for the newbies out there who seem to dim their light for Hubpages. After 1 year and one month. I got paid on Hubpages and it is very fulfilling. Don't over react my friend for I accumulated my earnings for 5 months since my adsense account got approved after 8 months of stay...

I just want to share my good news that I just got promoted to Assistant Manager. I don't want to name the store. I've been waiting for some time to get this so I am pretty psyched about it.

Today when I logged into my hubpages account after one day, I was surprised to see that now I have more than 800 followers following me and the traffic to my hubs which had been decreased to approximately 50% since last 5 or 6 days has again come to the same position. Thanks a lot my friends.

I am in a bit of a celebratory mood, because I finally made payout last month, for the first time ever on Hubpages! I had made it my goal in the beginning of 2013 to make payout and I barely made it lol. Although it was a long time coming, it still feels good.
