    One of my Spinditty hubs started taking off last night and now has views in the 5-figures. I never get traffic like this on anything (not a matter of quality, just the topics I tend to focus on).

    Has anyone else noticed an odd bump-up on that niche site, or am I finally getting a "viral" hub?  :-)

      Check your traffic sources. A bump like that may be social media, and will show up there.

        Thank you Dr Mark. There were no discernible stats at first, but by Saturday I could see that it was m.facebook. Someone must have picked it up, and it went from there. Traffic down now, but still well above what I ever see.

      Would do, of course, if I only knew the magic behind it  :-)  People on facebook on their mobile devices is all I can do we tap into that as the norm?!

    Which Hub?  Have you tried Googling your article that spiked?  You could also look at the sources of your hits that may give some clues.  At any rate congratulations.

      Hi Robert and thank you. Yes, the stats (which weren't conclusive at first) show Facebook mobile devices as the source...I hope that the readers who ended up on Spinditty as a result of my hub took the time to check out all the great stuff there!

    Glad you were able to find out where the traffic was coming from. Next time, if the traffic is coming from a new source, you can find this out right away by going to the hub, clicking on stats, then click on referrers. Select the "day" and it will tell you where your traffic is coming from that day.
    For example, is not on my traffic sources list, but they are on my latest hub stats list. Who would have thought?
