    Hi, Hubbers.

    One of my recent hubs, <link snipped - no promotional links>, got over 140 views in less than 18 hours. Is this a stroke of luck, or is this really happening?

      It must really be happening! You are a great writer and you put a lot of heart into your work. I saw one of your articles a few days ago and shared it with all of my autism communities and a group that I admin because it was very good. Keep writing!

      It's not unusual. I don't know what your views were before this started. I imagine that it got shared on some social media if this is a sudden spike. You can look at your stats for that hub to see where your views are coming from. Sometimes it is a brief spike from FaceBook, Reddit, or Pinterest, and that's great. Even better if it's from Google, that's more likely to be a sustained traffic flow.

      I have a couple that have been getting that much or more each day for months. It does happen. Congratulations, I hope your good fortune continues.

        i dont know how many views are from google or facebook, but as of today, 247 people viewed that article in 3 days. and why was my link considered a promotional link? i never promote links unless i tell you its a promotional link.

    That's great, Ivan! Keep up the hard work, keep writing, and keep exploring your interests in articles here on HubPages and I bet you'll see your traffic sky rocket. As for the link, we're not allowed to share any links to our hubs in the discussions as far as I know. Just the rules for everyone here.

      Gee. Thanks for clarifying that.

        You can, however, mention your hubs. It's linking to them that is not allowed. You could say something like "My hub on how to care for sick cats is getting lots of traffic." Then, those who are curious could go to your profile page and find the hub for themselves.

        The only exception I know of is the "Improving Your Article" forum for requesting help to get a hub to pass quality control. Links to hubs are allowed in that section of the forums.

        Also, I believe it is OK to post links to someone else's hubs -- just not your own as that is considered self promotion.
