I published a new hub a couple of days ago. Within hours of it being featured, it was getting around 250 views. Nice, I thought. But today I can see the stats and it's all coming from an app called Toutiao. Should I be concerned?
Here's the Wiki page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toutiao
Concerned? Why? It's just a content platform that has shown readers your work.
Okay, but I hadn't heard of it before and it was weird that it garnered so much traffic within an hour or two. I'm not unhappy
Hi Bev. Having skipped through the Wikipedia profile I have a vague notion of what the company does. In my mind, there is an underlying suspicion about everything emanating from China. But I can't see how you can stop Toutiao customers from accessing your article, even if you want to. Sorry, that's not very helpful is it?
I've seen them pop up a few times in my traffic sources in recent weeks. I seem to get a quick burst of a few hundred views from them when I first publish a new Hub, then after a day or two I fall off their radar entirely. Weird, but I'll take it. Thanks, China. (shrugs)
They could be crawling Hubpages for content and then store the articles in their own servers.
Wherefore art Toutiaou?
Why have they forsaken us? I miss getting that initial boost from them every time I posted a new hub.
I've been seeing traffic from that for around a year now. I guess they particularly like me. It's all pretty short lived though. Seems like I get views from there right after publishing something, and then no more.

My 24 hrs stat shows 30% drop in traffic, I have switched to subdomain long back, all my hubs are indexed and was getting a good traffic till yesterday. Any of you are facing same problem?

I fell in live with Indian movies about 5 years ago because they have storylines that inspire and their writting is unique and although they are long they are also enjoyable.

I am experiencing that there is a very small traffic to my Hubs from Hubapages. It shows just 2 to 4 pages per day. On the other hand, the traffic sent from search engines is very high. Have you experiencing same thing? Can anybody tell me how to get traffic from Hubpages to my Hubs?

Well, January is finally here.Make or break month as far as I am concerned.There is a stock market saying “However goes January, so goes the rest of the year.” Me thinks the same applies here.Will it be…A. Let the good times roll…OrB. A murder of crows glides overhead…The end of December truly...

I have an article which is always is popular, but in the last few days it's getting around 1,000 views a day. It's a pretty old one too. I'm happy, but don't understand why now? Does this mean someone posted it on social media and people liked it?
