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.
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.
I believe that it's pinterest that's what I have found true with hubs I have that gained a ton of traffic.I was thinking of making a pinterest account.
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,"
Paula, see my comment above on Keisha's coment.
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.
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.

I was just wondering what hubbers considered as "good traffic" to one of your hubs? Some of my hubs only get a handful of reads a week, while others get consistently 75-100 reads a day. After looking at my hubs I think that getting 25-50 reads a day is decent. My hub topics vary greatly -...

I know this is a sad song, you've heard it before, but guess what? It's getting worse and worse and worse.Plus, some bug bit my left hand, it itches like crazy. I'm determined not to scratch (cortizone is near by, although I'd rather not).I'll suffer the itch on my hand like the itch on HP.Really,...

Hi,I have been a member of Hubpages for a while. I have a bunch of hubs, published on various accounts, and since the Google slap, have noticed that my hub views, which weren't all that great before, have now dropped to almost nothing. On average, I seem to be getting about 1/2 a view a day per...

Any way to reach 500 views per week on your hubs?My hubs reach about 150-250 views per week. If possible I'd like to increase this to 400-500 views a week. Is there any way that I can get more views for my hubs? I share them on twitter and Pinterest as well as Yahoo! Answers with relevant...
