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 astonishingly. Would that hub be defined as "going viral?" I know it's not...

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 have 22 hubs! is it just me, or am I missing something? perhaps my hubs are...

Hello, hubpages! I'm new, and I've completed and published my first hub (though it still does not seem to be indexed on the site), that I've written in exploration of the Enlightenment philosopher Voltaire. I hope to continue learning and writing about this fascinating man and his...

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 once the Google Panda came in Feb., it still got 100+ views. Today, it is receiving...

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 it up. Is that viral? Or would it mean if you have more than a certain amount of...

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 after.So I looked at the hub that is doing so well, and tried to figure out why...
