    My article that almost, in the span of about a week, went viral and went on HealDove, has lost views. What does that mean?

    Traffic goes up. Traffic goes down. Traffic ebbs and flows. Some weeks your view #'s will be great, others they will suck. It's the nature of the beast. Don't obsess about it.

    Yes, I have seen that happen in many instances. One time it's up and the other time its down.
    But I think the quality of your content and the targeted audience count.

    Someone may have shared it on Facebook or to a group and the spike was everyone their reading it?

      i shared it on facebook on the very first day, and i got over 320 views in less than a week. i have no views coming from facebook now. for 3 days, a steady stream of facebook viewers has read my article before it dropped below 3 facebook views per day on the 4th day.

        Facebook traffic tends to be short-lived like that. Somebody else may share it later, and you'll get another burst, but it won't ever be sustained traffic.

    It's because whoever read it in the group already did. People post content in these groups and your article is at the bottom of the news feed. That is the nice thing about Reddit. People upvote articles they like so you have a better chance of being on top of the page longer.

      oh, so are you saying that reddit is better than facebook or hubpages?

        No.

    By my understanding going viral these days is when one gets more than 5 million views in a 3–7 day period.  I think most of us can only dream of something like that happening:)

      thats not what I meant.

      I think I would faint if that happened though I'm not sure what really defines "going viral" statistically speaking.

      I had a day last year where my view count approached 80K and it was one of the most surreal experiences I've felt as a writer, so it's very subjective.

        331 views a week is not bad, but 80K?!!! IMPOSSIBLE! ONLY 0.0000001% OF HUBBERS GET THOSE KINDS OF VIEWS!

        so, youre saying that that article reached its peak on DAY 1? that means that my autism article was a bust.

          No it took about 8 months and it was a few articles that gave me that view count over a 24 hour period.

            lets face it. this article is not google-worthy.

              sallybeaposted 14 months agoin reply to this

              After reading the article I wonder if the names of real people and places should really be shared without the permission of those concerned?

                I have suggested this could be a problem to Ivan before, but I think he was cross with me hmm I'd be quite annoyed if I found that an old friend had mentioned me by name, whether positively or negatively, in what amounts to a commercial article. First names, okay. Full names, absolutely not.

                Better yet, use made-up names. Always protect people's identity.

                  I agree.  If the people mentioned are living in a sheltered accommodation they should be protected by privacy laws and under no circumstances should their names be made public.

                    Agreed. Using their real names may be a HIPAA violation.

                  made-up names? like what?

                  1. sallybea profile image96
                    sallybeaposted 14 months agoin reply to this

                    Yes made up names, any names you like but not their real names.

                    Go for generic, common names like Sally Smith. At the end put "All names have been changed to protect people's identity." That will look ultra-professional.

    When a hub is brand new, it has a lot of views from YOU. You are tweaking and fixing up your hub, so it gets a lot of views initially. It also gets views from hubbers who see that it is new, so they check it out.

    Then, things can often be quiet for a particular hub for a while. It can be months before a hub grows in Google search or is found by someone who can make it go viral. Sometimes some hubs just never do well. I have lots of hubs that never made it past 1000 views in the several years they've been published, so I gut them and rewrite them.

    Some hubs do great! My best day was just over 52k. Those days are far and few between and hubs that earn like that are also far and few between, but it happens.

    Keep at it. As you write more and more, you'll begin to get a handle on what topics work best for you and how to format a hub so that it performs well.

    Facebook and SM traffic are bursts. If your article is good, you might get repeated bursts. But they are still of that short-lived nature.

    Which gave rise to the talk about such traffic not having much monetary value. I think such talk are often exaggerated, but it is true that some ad companies do not pay for SM traffic. All in all, best to aim for SEO traffic.
