Traffic Surge!

    Hi all,

    Has anyone else noticed a surge in traffic to their Hubs in the last week?

    I wonder if Google has boosted HubPages (or demoted more junk articles and sites in its index) - I did hear a few internet marketing people moaning recently.

    Alternatively I wonder if I'm just hitting the exponential growth phase for my articles?

    Either way I'm very happy with my earnings here this month!

      I've had some very strange surges over the past few days.  I'm definitely not complaining, but I'm pretty shocked which hubs have been getting all the attention.  Enjoy your earnings :0)

            Even with my limited understanding, I strongly suspected spam.LOL

        What was your expectation?  In your first few weeks, most of your traffic is from other Hubbers and they don't click on ads.  You have to wait until you start getting search engine traffic, then you'll start seeing some income.  That could take a few more weeks.

    Brett, how big was this surge and did it come from google?

      My traffic seems to be climbing up the exponential wall. Keyword research is definately paying off, but existing hubs are getting a lot more visitors. I've gone from 300 to 800 page views a day in a very short time though.

        Well done Brett hard work on keywords will always pay off. Where Are you backlinking.? And are you tweeting?

          I never really backlink apart from betweeen my existing sites - I guess that's enough to get started with. My popular hubs get their own backlinks anyway. I tried tweeting but it seemed a waste of time.

    Yes, I have definitely noticed especially for my school hubs.. I've been making revenue with adsense and amazon.. My views have also increased from 100 to 400 views per day.. Hooray for me but I know it will die down.. So I am off to write on more topics especially evergreen topics.. These will definitely bring in income for the long run..

      Oh no I forgot the back to school niche!

      One of my brother's hubs on a seasonal topic has got him huge amounts of traffic so he's really excited about that. I don't know how much the traffic will last but his Google Analytics stats say that traffic is up 1080%!
