Is anyone else seeing more traffic from wehavekids? I have four articles there and my total traffic from all of them was never more than 20 (from the niche site). Today I found a nice surprise traffic wise. One of my articles has more than tripled in traffic from the niche site. Traffic from Google and other sources seem to be normal.
Curious if it will continue or if it will be short lived. I did some digging and it looks like this particular article is on the first page for one of the top topic tabs. Does anyone know how often they switch out articles from each of the first pages, or how they decide on which articles make the first page? I'm looking forward to seeing how this article does moving forward.
I don't think you will know until time has shown you a pattern of behavior. Your articles may be related to a current event or social hot topic.
I have been on HP for almost 4 years now. My top three sites generating traffic are Google, HP, and Pinterest.
Only one article has gained traffic from wehavekids. As far as I know it has nothing to do with current events and it's not seasonal. The article is almost 6 years old and has been on wehavekids for at least a year. Not sure the exact amount of time as I didn't submit it myself, but I think it's been on there long enough to get plenty of data.
I was more or less asking to see if anyone else has seen an uptick in traffic from wehavekids or not as my other 3 articles have not increased in traffic at all. Curious if the increase could be from being on the first page or not. The only thing I don't know is when the article would have been put on the first page of the education tab. It's not actually on the home page of wehavekids, so not sure if that will end up making a difference or not in the long run.
Google, other search engines, and pinterest are my top sources of traffic so I was very surprised to see so many views from wehavekids.
I am seeing a slight increase but I've also been improving my hubs so not sure if it tells you anything. Hope it keeps going up for you.
Your post reminded me to visit https://hubpages.com/my/hubs/traffic-sources# , which I hadn't done in awhile. Looks like Bing and Yahoo aren't ignoring us nearly as much as they used to.
As to your article, I can only speculate. Maybe you got a share from someone with a high follower count. Enjoy it and congrats!
I thought someone must have shared it as well, but when I looked at traffic the vast majority of it was from wehavekids. I thought shares would come from the site it was shared from? Facebook or Pinterest for example. Either way I'm happy to see similar traffic today. Will be interesting to see how long it lasts. In the mean time I've been comparing it to my other articles on wehavekids and will see how they all compare today.
I do not have a wehavekids article but my traffic is up significantly this weekend. Check out this post from the serendipitous thread:

Seems to be improving traffic on several niche sites.
Very interesting. Thanks for the insight! None of my other articles have gained traffic like this particular one. I noticed a few more views from wehavekids for the other articles, but nothing even close to the one that has gained over 100 views. I will enjoy it while last

I'm curious if anyone knows if the new editors that were hired have completed the training and are on their own now, or if article standards have changed for some reason? The last few months I've had some very old and not updated articles moved to niche sites. I'm happy more of my articles are...

Does anyone find Facebook useful? I reactivated my account a week ago and it drew a few visits to my articles. But not enough to justify the amount of time that I spent on it. I find Facebook is such a thief of my time that I deactivated it again.

I pretty much have the same amount of traffic everyday but last week 5 of my hubs were moved to niche sites and since then I've has less half the traffic as normal. What could cause that?

I truly don't get it. It's a whole lot of pretty pictures. How does posting our articles to pinterest get them read?

Aside from sharing my article links on Facebook, what are some tried and true ways of increasing traffic/reads to our articles? I'm new; 3 weeks in, have 10 published and featured articles so far. I'm trying to figure out what the number on my profile photo means exactly. I know...
