So I just got 160 page views in five minutes on one hub.
Someone popular sent a bunch of people there?
Santa made it mandatory for Elf Labor newbs to read before starting their summer spurt of toy creation?
Sonic the hedge hog installed an IP switcher and got stuck on your page?
I have no Idea. Most likely someone bookmarked it and they are popular so others will stumble through and check it out as well
Well, now that number jumped from 160 in five minutes to 10,700 over my night. I am a little concerned as this is abnormal I think. Well, as long as they are looking and clicking I can deal with it. All the comments so far have different IP's so I don't know.
Which of your hubs was it wesleycox? I would love to know why too!
yeah i have no clue where the traffic is coming from I tried googling it and looked through yahoo. let us know where it is coming from maybe there is a way others can gain the same views
StumbleUpon most likely, the traffic will show up in your statistics in a few hours to know for sure.
It says that it is from yahoo search. This hub handshake etiquette out ranks ezine, I don't know if it still does but what ever I ain't complainin'.
By the way, I didn't do anything different. It just jumped after I published my 21st hub.
I wanna be you
What did you do different with this hub? Did you put it in the yahoo search engine?
for me your ranking in third place. I never knew that handshake etiquete would ge so much search traffic. That is crazy.
check yahoo site it should be listed there somewhere. It happened with bristolboy once. He got 20k view in a day.
Good for you! Keep us posted on your traffic. It was very exciting when this happened to Bristol Boy!
Its now at 15000 in about 24 hours. I am excited. I didn't know handshaking would be so attractive. I expected it to be a fluke, but I am enjoying this one.
Someone else (the squirrel in the hat) had a similar situation a few weeks ago. They figured out that their article was one of the featured links on Yahoo's home page.
congratulations and enjoy the earnings (although I'm assuming handshakes isn't exactly the highest paying niche =P )
just imagine if you had written that hub on finance and gotten 15k impressions on 24 hours lol =P
good luck in the future and I hope for your sake you can keep averaging this high level of impressions day in and day out.
edit: I'm confused ... the term "hand shake etiquette" received 51 searches last month on google and pays 5 cents per click.
I am not an expert but I think the traffic is actually due to the tags for the names of the types of handshakes which have dual meanings. Those terms are highly searched terms so its great traffic!
If you have Google Analytics installed it will tell you where it's coming from under the Traffic tab. If it's search traffic it will show up under search engines, but if it's somewhere else it will show up under Referring Sites. If you click on the Referring Sites tab and them click on the site that shows all the traffic, it should show you the referring URL.
I hope we get an update on how that traffic is keeping up or if it was a freak thing that has stopped as soon as you are back on ! =P
Do you remember NES, super mario bros when you had a difficult time doing something then all of a sudden you got past the hard part. After that happens you try to remember what you did. That is what this is like.

OK I sm basically still a newbie here so still looking some help. In your account where you can see where the traffic is coming from how many of you get more outside traffic than hubpages traffic and how long did it take to achieve, just curious.

If I am getting traffic from dogpile but I have never listed anything with them, could I safely assume that this traffic is from some sort of backlink from someone else? I'm not real savvy in this traffic resource stuff other than reading where it is coming from. Now, I am curous to know...

Is anyone else having a massive adsense earnings boost?I checked my earnings at about 6 and had very little, and yet now have much more in there. In Adsense this accounts for about half my clicks and about a third of my impressions of all time. Whats more, I am not showing anything up...

Most of my traffic from search engine used to come from Google. However, over the past month, my Hubs are getting more hits from Bing and Yahoo instead. In doing SEO research, I generally try to play to Google, so I'm uncertain concerning the reasons for this change in statistics. Does anyone else...

I have read many forums over the last couple of months on how traffic to HubPages has dropped considerably since July. After much investigation I believe to have figured out what has caused this drop (and I don't think it was the algorithm change).I keep statistics on my keyword performance for...
