I've never really tried to utilize social media to promote anything, until recently. Long ago, I set up a Google + profile, but really never checked on it.
While I was away, it got over 40 million views. How in the heck did that happen?
I don't understand it, and was hoping someone could enlighten me.
On my G+ profile page, it says......19 followers|40,670,129 views
Given your activity, this really feels like a lot of pet-oriented folks came here and expected to find something, but instead found a human with a sticky screen name not actually doing anything.
Or maybe it's just from robot-spiders crawling your page.
You might go investigate your stats.
You are a magnet, Jim.
Actually, it must be from keywords being searched.
Would be nice to get a penny per view on G+.
I don't know what happened, or why, but it had my puzzled.
That is what I was thinking too. Not sure how though. I will attempt to be more active for a while, and see what happens. I was talking to my son about it, and it had him scratching his head too.
I also noticed that the view count went down a few (9), since I checked this morning. Thought that was odd too.
Sounds like timing to me. Sometimes social media works like that, without effort, if you get in on the ground floor of something big.
Did a little digging, and I found a very informative article on the subject.
It said that views of photos in blogger blogs would show up as views on your G+ profile. That is probably how it happened. I have some pretty photo heavy pages.
Soooo many things I still don't know. It's fun to still be learning at my age though.
Just send a few our way! It seems you are starting to out do HP!

I was checking stats on specific hubs to see where traffic is coming from, and it's strange. Is there a change?It's only showing Hubpages views and Google.com... what happened? Will our original stats return? I hope so.And it's not showing Keyword search terms.Excuse this thread if there is...

Well, its official, my hubs are all down about 39%. Strangely enough my profile views are up to 40%. This is very odd cause usually my profile views are never that high. Has anyone else experienced this? Maybe its just random.

I was getting great traffic until Panda hit in 2011 and my traffic took a nosedive. The last six months or so my traffic was increasing nicely. I was excited to work on HP again. However, the last week or so I lost it all and now am sitting back at my lows.Oh well, it...

Yippee, I just checked into My Account and realised that some time in the last 24 hours I hit 3,000,000 views. In fact I am now at over 3,002,000. Traffic is still slower than usual because of Pandas etc or it would have been a few weeks ago, but I got there in the end.

Hello Everyone. I have a question that I'm hoping some of you with experience can help me with. Two weeks ago I built this new profile to cover a niche topic that I know quite a lot about and go along with my budding YouTube Channel. I'm trying to create quality hubs focusing on 1300+ word articles...
