A hub I posted eleven (yes, ELEVEN) years ago has suddenly been boosted into hub stratosphere.
Over the years it has gathered many favorable comments, and has consistently had 1 - 3 views per day for a loooong time. Suddenly it has shot up to about two thousand views a day for no discernable reason. NOT complaining, mind you. I wish I knew the secret to apply to other articles.
This may be a short-lived phenomenon, so I will bask in the glory for a moment.
It is second on a Google page when searching for the subject and has a couple of featured blurbs on the niche site.
It has also gained a hubscore of 100... which I have not seen for awhile.
This may be a passing fancy--- but for now it it an amazing boost.
This may be a hint to others who think they have a good article that is not gathering views--- you don't necessarily remove it.
Great fun. I wonder, did you alter it in any way?
What an uplifting report! Thanks for sharing this terrific news about your article that has achieved well-deserved recognition. May it continue to prosper!
That is good advice to leave hubs alone other than occasional updating. Congratulations on the sudden increase in views. May it continue!
Congratulations! I've had a couple of hubs that languished for years suddenly take off for no apparent reason, but never in the thousands of views. I'm impressed (and a little envious). Fingers crossed that this keeps happening for you.
Congratulations, Rochelle! That sounds like wonderful news. I hope the increased views continue for a long time.
Cool beans Rochelle! Someone apparently linked your story somewhere.
I had an article on my blog that got shared on Reddit. It rocketed up to 60,000 views in 2 days. Sadly then it tailed of to 20 per day. lol
I hope your new found interest has staying power! Sometimes just getting a link on a popular blog or site can make all the difference for months or years to come. Best Wishes
What a wonderful surprise, Rochelle. It gives us all hope that anything is possible. Maybe this popularity will spread to other articles of yours.
Congratulations Rochelle, and I echo the thanks of others for sharing this encouraging and pretty amazing experience with your article. May the Creative Flow continue with you!
Congratulations Rochelle! I think this is a wonderful surprise.

Many people have done much more in a much shorter time, but I rarely promote except for a tweet now and then. It's nice to see the totals.

I have had several creative writing hubs that went idle quite a while ago. I left them idle because they will never garner Google traffic because they aren't informational hubs. Tonight, it shows ALL of my hubs as featured, including those old hubs. This includes about a dozen...

I just wanted to have a tiny celebration at having hit my first milestone, 1,000 page views...It took around 15 hubs, 8 days and a fair bit of promotion to get there, but I'm really pleased.I mainly shared on Google+ and Twitter and also answered questions on the forums here, HupHopped and...

I’m 44 views short of 2m at the moment, so this is the day. I’m still enjoying the HP experience. Thankful for those who visit my articles and for the team that makes this possible.
