    Why would a hub which gets single digit page views per day suddenly jump to an extreme high?

    I have a hub that has been getting single digit page views per day for two and a half years.  Today it has 229.  Has anyone had this experience before?  Any insight into what might be going on?  I'm glad for the increase, but it was so sudden and extreme.  My daily earnings jumped to a whopping $1.51.  I'm thinking of early retirement if it lasts a day or two.

    Check out your source of traffic. I have seen this most commonly from Pinterest, but you might have a Facebook or Twitter social media connection going viral.
    Congratulations!

      I checked my traffic.  My Google views are at 192 for the day which is unusually high for me.  I did some work on the hub a few days ago to make it look and read better.  Maybe it clicked up another page on Google.  Thanks for  the comment, Ken.

    Well it doesn't sound like a bot, but there is always that possibly. Let's hope there has just been an upturn in that hub's luck...we all need to retire in style hehe

      I just figured it out. The hub is about a shipwreck on lake Michigan near my home. The Chicago Tribune did a story about new sightings of shipwrecks in the area as a result of clear waters after winter. My article is two lines down from the CT story.

    Cam....there could be several reasons for this, but whatever it is, it's good!  I mean it's not like it's not a welcome sight!  LOL   What I have noticed a few times with my hub traffic, if I've written on a current event, and mobs of people are googling, my traffic soars.
    My hub on the Sandusky scandal (Penn State) went crazy at the time.  Also, it can rise months later because perhaps there was an update on the issue in the news or on TV.......I say...keep those dimes and nickels coming!
    What boggles my mind is that my most read hub is on (of all people) Charles Manson!!   People are strange Cam.  We just love those crazy people!!  LOL  Reconfirms to us we're "normal,"

      well...there you go!  It usually has a lot to do with what people are googling on a particular day!

      That was funny.  I had it figured out within minutes of posting this question.  Thanks for speaking up, Paula

    Wow, congratulations. I think you have answered your own question.
    Right  place at the right time and on the right subject.
    I have seen a jump like this before when I had a hub shared  on Facebook.

    I think this is a good example of why we should write wider than just our own niche market. You never know when it will get noticed.

      Thanks Blond Logic, Maybe it will continue doing well for a few more days.  I'm going to tweak the hub a bit with some keywords and see  if that keeps the exposure up.

    Blessings in disguise as still blessings!  You, unknowingly, make a good case for updating hugs.  However, it would seem the article in your local paper may have played a part.

    I agree that it has to do with being on the right subject at the right time. I had the same thing happen when one of my hubs coincided w/ a subject's 25th anniversary. Congratulations! Buy a nice lunch:)

      Catherine, it was a Chicago Tribune story and others who picked up the same story, that led people to my hub.  It was on shipwrecks off the northwest shoreline of Michigan.My title had the name of one of the wrecks in it, so peole were clicking away.
