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.
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.
I have suggested this could be a problem to Ivan before, but I think he was cross with me 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.
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.
Hello hubbersI've read a couple of post where a hubber will say their post 'went viral'. So what would you consider, in number of views, is 'viral'?I have one particular hub that has had roughly 1500 views since i put...
A couple years ago in 2011, I had a hub on another account that went up to 5000 views rapidly. Eventually it waned to about 1000-1300 views. Now after a couple years it gets about a few hundred views a day...
First a disclaimer is in order.I broke the evergreen rule with this approach. I knew it going in and did it anyway. What the hell, sometimes rules are made to be broken. Sometimes a gamble pays off, often it doesn't. I...
