    My traffic is the highest ever, red arrows abound! While I think this is awesome (if it's real), I'm wondering if it is some reporting error? How is everyone's traffic doing?

      Leaving aside when I was banned -

      Not good...not good...

      some of my hubs seem to have double red sign and it really means that the hub is pulling up..

    I think it's a glitch. There have been a few of these.

    I just looked at my account page and thought "blinking heck - that picked up quickly!"

    Turns out I was looking in the comments column...

    Yes. I noticed that my top rated hub has 10 times the views I would normally expect, and 2 others show higher activity. The rest seem to be normal.
    Any explanations?

    Yup I'm at twice the traffic. I think it's a glitch....

    Whatever I'm seeing can't entirely be a glitch because I've had a bigger than average day of AdSense earnings, and that tends to happen when I have an upswing in traffic.

      My GA traffic stats have gone up too and nearly matches what I see in my hubpages stats, so this doesn't look like a glitch to me!

    AW Shucks! I thought I had just hit the mother load.  I guess it probably is a glitch, because the last time this happened to me it was a glitch, they fixed it and it all went away

    Some of my hubs show unusually high traffic, but most are in the norm. Possibly at least some processing glitch involved. Usually the staff updates on these at some point.

      It's going to be a crushing blow when all of these page hits roll back off sad

    I am not convinced this is a glitch, My google reports are also showing large increase in traffic, I also submitted several posts to various places promoting a few of my hubs as well as a couple others and the ones I promoted of my own are the ones seeing the giant rise in traffic.

    Having second thoughts too... some parameters indeed match the surge.

    I'm thinking it's a glitch. '50-things-Id-like-to-do-before-Im-50' went from 3 hits on google in 6 days to 37 hits on google in 7 days!

    Now I highly doubt that I'd get that much increase even if I got a higher ranking!

    While Google Analytics does seem to see a little surge in hits, I'm only seeing 7 hits in the last two days for this hub.....

    Come on guys, say it aint a glitch! My traffic has been so low the past 1-2 weeks all those red arrows and double red arrows were really cheering me up smile

    I really gotta write MORE hubs, so that I always have something increasing in traffic and decreasing too. The more hubs the wider a range of traffic trends to hit on that will compensate for drops in other trends.

    Here is to there being no glitch! big_smile

    I don't think it's a glitch.  I've seen a rise in google traffic and my adsense and analytics corroborate that story.  there's a little wishful thinking involved here to...but hey.  let's keep monitoring it.  maybe google likes hubs all of a sudden.  a rising tide?

    I was up yesterday too. I had done a little marketing and was impressed with the results.
