I am not posting this to be congratulated since I have done nothing unusual to deserve this. It's pure chance. The reason I mention it is twofold:
1. To boost morale during these low earning times
2. To prove that an article doesn't necessarily need to be on a network site to be successful
One of my articles, Second Brain Found in Heart Neurons - Trust Your Gut Feelings went viral last week with over 24,000 views per day. As usual when an article gets a boost, after a few days the views went down to 13,000 daily and I thought that they would slowly continue to decline but today they have climbed back up again to over 16,000!
Needless to say that its earnings have increased accordingly to just below $400 so far.
Traffic sources? Mostly FaceBook shares but not by me.
Good news, always welcome.
To paraphrase a famous Scottish soccer coach who once said...I like that young man, he's got brains in his legs and not his head.
This is the type of thing many Hubbers hope for but rarely happens, so good for you! A few years back someone on FB linked to an article by one of our writers here and helped it to pull in millions of views quickly. I think she earned around $5,000 from it. So this does happen once in awhile. To me? never but I'm not complaining. Views and money have been very good for me in 2019 and I'm hoping that trend continues. Keep up the good work!
I've now read the article and watched some of the video...this is amazing information. Imagine what this could mean for Alzheimer's patients! So glad you wrote this.
Congratulations! In the same spirit of encouraging the community -- I am at this moment writing from a seaside cabana in Mexico, on a week-long vacation that I managed to pay for exclusively with HubPages earnings. It took a while, but it's proof that it can be done!
Again, congratulations to you and I hope we all find success here.
Should I call it a stroke of luck. Even then Congratulations.
That's great!... (I'm trying not to congatulate you) and the game here is a little like a roulette wheel.
I have been here for quite awhile and have about 100 current hubs. Two or three account for a very large percentage of my views and revenue. and I never would have guessed those particular ones to be the leaders.
A vague but true piece of advice to new hubbers might be "keep on, keeping on, because you ever know".
Good stuff. Any manipulation on your part, or just good work, well rewarded?
No manipulations whatsoever Will, just pure luck. This happened before, a few years ago with another article but not to such a high degree of views. The boost then lasted for a few weeks and then stabilised at around 200 views per day until today. So I am hoping that here will be a lasting effect this time as well.
Thank you for sharing, Sue. The title is catchy, and I think we baby boomers are looking for articles on health these days.
Congrats. I saw where someone shared it on a fairly large Facebook group page. I belong to a couple of Facebook groups that deal with health and food, and someone posted your article on a Macrobiotic Facebook group page.
Here is where it was posted.
I remember that Sondra,
I think it was Military Diet: Lose Up to Ten Pounds in Three Days. It's on CalorieBee now. That article's 6.1k comments and 23,821 votes on the poll are good indicators of its enormous popularity.
My article so far only has 96 comments (I have deleted many religious ones) and 7,125 votes on the poll so it is by no means in that super league but I'm not complaining.
Thanks for sharing the great news, Sue. This must be an exciting time for you!
I read that article. It is worth. Believe me. Again congrats.
Very encouraging! Once you get going, find a good subject and have good quality...well done!
Congratulations! Glad that all your hard work was helped along with a dose of good luck

My hub about Hawking (Here's Why Stephen Hawking Say There is No God).was published in June 2017. Views have gone through the roof since the announcement of his death. I've had close to 100,000 views in 24 hours. I'll enjoy this heavy traffic while it lasts. It was getting about 200-300 views...

At last! I have finally had my first Amazon sale. It took 384 click but I'm finally there, my conversion rate is now 0.26! Yay.Weirdly the first item I sold has nothing to do with the items I have put on my Hubs, but I'm not complaining. A sale is a sale.

There's no badge for it, but I hit 5 million views slightly earlier than anticipated. I edited a ton of hubs a few months ago and it really boosted my traffic (plus the niche sites help!)Now on to 10 million views... that'll be how many years?

I finally wrote 200 hubs and I've surpassed 100,000 page views. My 200th hub linked together many of my hubs pertaining to small businesses. It's gratifying to know I finally reached another milestone. Thanks to the many of you Hubbers who have served as inspiration during my time here.

Recently I hit the 700,000 views mark. I can't wait to reach 1 million views.
