How do you ping a hub? I know it's been asked before....

    I noticed someone asked two months ago how to ping one's hubs.  I've also read the forum question and answers on whether it's a good idea to ping one's hubs. But I didn't actually see the answer to what it means to 'ping' one's hub.  Can someone please enlighten me?  I'm especially wondering because last week I edited each hub by opening each one up and copying/pasting each one to my hard drive/documents so that I'd have the newest version of each.  I closed each hub up afterward.  To my surprise traffic increased a lot for a couple days from that little exercise.

    Your own editing actions count as page views. As for pinging:

      Yes, I had read that one, but still didn't or don't understand. 

      Thanks, though.  and with regard to our own editing actions counting as page views, I had read that a couple months ago, but is it also true that at the end of the day when the count goes down, it's because those page views we did ourselves have been subtracted?

      Just wondering.  thanks.

    Pingler is pretty good, the good news is that pinging hubs is not really requird, most people see their hubs indexed in a matter of hours naturally.

    Some Free Site Map Generators have a ping facility, it's worth a look. Search on: Google Free Site Map Generator

    No, our own pageviews are not subtracted.

    The count on HubPages is on a 24-hour cycle.  That is, when you look at the pageview count at 8:00PM, you will see how many views there have been since 8:00PM yesterday.  When you look at 2:00PM, you will see how many views there have been since 2:00PM yesterday, etc.

    So, the reason the count goes down is because of fluctuations in the rate of traffic over the course of a single day.
