Yesterday I opened an account with stumbleupon and posted a link on one of my poorer performing hubs. Now, less than 24 hours later the traffic to that hub shows 22 in 24 hours with a total of 64 "ever". This hub as sat for days with little to no traffic. The stats in the hub show only 3 due to stumbleupon, though and all three were actually yesterday. The rest were 1 from google and all others from HP.
Is it coincidence that 1/3 of my total traffic happened in 24 hours from HP or have I missed doing something when I posted the link?
never done anything like that to any of my hubs...
Maybe just luck..
If I can convince myself it actually worked, I certainly will. As of now, the indications are otherwise, though.
So? Do some science. Its all about repeating tests.
Yes, it is. Just hoped to get maybe some feedback that I did the link wrong and that's why it isn't showing up as a source as much as it should. But if it actually works, it may be worth the time.
That sounds like the right amount of traffic for a single Stumble.
Are you checking traffic sources with Google Analytics?
No - HP stats. It shows 3 stumbles, but over 20 HP views in 24 hours. Odd for a short hub that has been up for a couple of weeks. Other than today, normal activity - some as soon as published some from HP, then a steady decline + a few googles, then today - WHAM! Just seems odd to get that many from HP for a not so new hub out of the blue.
