    Are you happy when you see that somebody has read one of your slower hubs?

    I'm always presently surprised when one of my slower hubs gets a little traffic, even just one view, lol. I'm like, "Wow, somebody's actually reading that?" It's especially a hoot when it's organic traffic. Do you get the same kick out of unexpected traffic?

    Of course janshares, its really feeling good when it happens. Some of my hubs gets rising traffic occassiobsly, which I think deserves to be read by the audience.

      Well put, vishnum. Some of our gems will go unread until someone drops by. And as word55 said, the reader could end up getting something they really needed. Thanks for your answer.

    Yes! I am always thrilled when someone reads one of my slower hubs - particularly when it's one that has been sitting for so long I know it's about to be unfeatured! It is also fun to see (or at least guess) what generated the unexpected traffic. Sometimes, by looking at my stats I can figure out what caused people to start searching for my topics (e.g. something related going on in the media). Other times, I haven't got a clue. But I am still so happy; even if, like you said, it was just one view.

      Glad you relate to the "one view" happy feeling, LastRose. You're so right about the saving grace before becoming unfeatured. Thanks for your answer.

    Oh, for sure!  I love that we can now highlight our hubs. Sometimes I will put those to be highlighted that I had published when I first started writing here on HubPages and surprisingly, they have since been read many times, and much to my delight.  Some of my first writes mean the most to me, so it is good that they are able to get another chance, for when we first join, not many know of us and read our work until much later.

      I'm so with you on that, Faith. There are still a few I'm attached to but could use a tweak or two. I'm just glad they are still worthy of a read. Thanks sk much for answering.

    I get excited when anybody reads my hubs regardless of the content. It makes me want to write more.

      Very exciting, lisavanvorst. Thanks for answering.

    Yes. I'm happy when anybody reads any of my hubs. But when you get traffic from a slower hub it lets you know that it is still relevant  to somebody.

      And that's a good feeling, mdgardner. Thanks for answering.
      (Sorry for the typo, everyone. I meant "pleasantly" surprised.)

    Yes, it could make the difference in the reader's life. That person can be searching for a topic that'll give a better understanding about something. I'm sure that all hub writers will be happier. Thanks

    The answer is yes ma'am!  And I like to peruse other hubber's hub lists because sometimes those slow hubs are real jewels.

      Absolutely, RTalloni. Thanks for your answer.

    I just get shocked. It just sorts suits that day and what that person needs but its always unexpected.

      Yup, same here, W1totalk. Thanks for answering.

    Beyond. I love to see traffic on any of my hubs. I can only dream that one day I will have a big fan base. Until them I jump for joy when I gets reads, compliments, and followers. I mean I write, cause I like to. Having anyone actually read my stuff makes ms feel good.

    I am the same, it makes me happy that someone may be getting some benefit from my hub especially if it is a slow one, new one, or a favourite of mine. Even though I have been on here for almost 18 months and get reasonable traffic now, I still get a kick out of the fact that people read what I write about.

      I know, Robbie, it is still awesome. Thanks for your answer.

    yeah, i would be very happy too. I mean, someone actually doesn't mind to read my lousy hub, I really appreciate that

    Yes I do. Knowing one lone soul has passed by and visited makes me think along the lines of....Wow, that uselessly slow hub I wrote months ago on the Habits of The Yellow Spotted One Legged TreeHopper has managed to attract a human being. What's going on!!!
    I often think about deleting the slow slow ones but haven't got around to it  yet.

      Deleting slow hubs, even if they get visits, is something to ponder. Thanks for answering, chef-de-jour.

    Indeed!!-- and for some reason, lately I've had several comments on some infrequently viewed hubs.
    Interesting, since I have removed several low-performing hubs .
    I think the thing is-- it is hard to be objective, yourself, about if a hub is "good" or not. Traffic does not always equal quality.

      Rochelle, you should not remove any of your hubs. Who knows, what is searched by the readers and then the search stops on your hubs. So, occasional it gets traffic

    I have a hub that, to my surprise, every once in a while gets a new view. It's about why Michael Vick would stay the Philadelphia Eagles QB. Well, that whole thing is totally moot at this stage of the season, and I fully expect views to settle in at zero. So, when I do get a new view, I guess I'm more befuddled than anything else. I'm gratified with a slow mover getting views when it seems to portend a positive trend.

    Yes. I feel like my best articles get less views.

      I feel the same, too, cfin. I wish you better views to those articles. Thanks for answering.
