    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?

      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.

      It is a fun ride, but I lived near Disneyland for many years and am aware tha rides can come to a sudden end after a lot of  surprises, swerves and ups and downs. Hoping for an E ticket.

    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.

      It has had a slight effect on other stats, but I can see that the views are coasting downwards toward more normal ranges again. It was fun.
