Have you ever had a hub go viral?
I logged in today to see a hub of mine get about 5,000 views in one day. Good for me but am shocked as this is a huge jump (a 100% jump) over previous activity. Has this ever happened to you?
No not for me. I'm pleased with slow but steady traffic to a thing.
Word of advice - do not make the mistake of stating too publicly which hub of yours has got that success. You do not want someone to know which - as there are plenty of folks that would love to copy or spin your hub, and steal your deserved income from it.
Thanks for the tip. I will be careful about letting out the identity of my hub I do know that I use SEO to my advantage and can guess why this took off based on my recent push to market the hub...guess I have to write more like it!
I can't say that I have ever had a hub go viral, although I can tell by occasional jumps in traffic counts when a hub has been shared/linked by someone with a busy web site or a lot of facebook/twitter followers.
I wouldn't even know how to "make" something go viral... I tend to focus on encouraging "organic" links from around the web, and on keeping my articles edited to always contain current information.
Cool that you had that happen, though!
I had one go mini hub viral with over two thousand page views in the first week and now just a trickle . . . it is called Did the Illegal Criminalization of Marijuana Lead to the Downfall of America.
I think I can credit my success to Facebook and I probably see it go down after time like yours did.
The above mentioned article was posted on FB by a reader that really liked it and has a lot of friends.
I have one that has 2k on it one day and 50 views the next. It bounces back and forth. I'm thinking there's a glitch in the system on my hub.
What to say about myself? My hubs hardly get 10 views a day. When some of them get 50 views, I used to thing that it went viral. Anyway, congratulations for having 5000 views on a single hub.

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...

One thing that I've noticed in my traffic stats is that one particular hub about a particular acoustic guitar - seems to be doing better than other hubs about what I would think would be guitars that are more sought...

How Many visitors do you get in one day on your hubs if you have written approx 150?The reason why I ask is that I have seen so many people on the forums stating they have at least 1000 a day. This is fine but they only...

I hope this is in the right forum. I am trying to figure out what went wrong with my hub. The second day I was on the first page of google. I realized that I hadn't put the right title, I meant to change it...

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

I made a video game hub that I published in early December 2010. This hub went viral (to an extent). It started to receive 1000 views a day. The views would change a bit between 650-1000, but 1000 was the peak. Even...
