          That's not a language. It's just pictures.

      Yes, but then it faded to lower volume, but still remained higher than what it was doing.

      Meaning, I've had hubs averaging about 30-40 views a day, then top out over 1000, then subside down to about 400-500 views. smile

      Something similar happened to me about three times. Once, someone at reddit posted a link. The other two times, the traffic was organic, through search engines, when one of my obscure keywords suddenly became topical because it was in the news. But it always dies out in less than a week.

    Yes, but you can see where the traffic is coming from.  In my case, someone posted a link to my hub on a busy college forum.

    I can see the coffee hub on a good position in Google! wink tongue

    1. Greek One profile image76
      Greek Oneposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      yeah.. its the coffee hub.. but it's position hasn't changed on Google.. that's the weird thing..

      all of a sudden (literally) people are trying to find out things that are wrong with the coffee.. but there hasn't been any news about the coffee to spur interest..

      the only thing normal is that the adsense venue has stayed to about 10 cents a day lol.. they are going to the hub and clicking off... whatever they are trying to find, they ain't find it here smile

        did you check your keywords in the stats section?

        to see how people are finding you?

        1. Greek One profile image76
          Greek Oneposted 8 years agoin reply to this

          yeah... the are searching for disturbing facts about this particular company....

          but historically such searches are minimal, but all of a sudden, with no evident reason whatsoever, they have increased dramatically over the past few days...

          I just which I could understand why (i REALLY would have liked to understood why if there was a corresponding movement in Adsence $)

            I enjoyed reading it.. and paper moons comment is classic.

            burnt coffee, hmm, sounds like another establishment..

            do you see any extra incoming links in your hub metrics?
            maybe there was a blurp about it on some talk radio show or you just have a lot of unhappy Hortonites. hmm

            1. Greek One profile image76
              Greek Oneposted 8 years agoin reply to this

              nope... no other change that I can see in any stats...

              there must have been some news story about it somewhere, but nothing I can find.

              Funny thing is, a while back a guy was banned from a store for complaining about burnt coffee from that Tim Hortons(there is a link about it in my Hub) and it was a big news story here in Canada (it must have been a VERY slow news day).. but my hits didnt go up at all

                You'll find your answer in Facebook, there the new "like" system is viral, a friend's page comes up with "THe Disturbing FACTS about Tim Hortons Coffee (Very GROSS)!!! You will NEVER drink another TIM HORTONS COFFEE after seeing this!" if you click on the link you are treated to a series of FB demands to repost this message everywhere before you can see the information promised. I bailed, refusing to repost this to all my friends' home pages. But I was curious, so here I am on your hub.

                  well that would explain it..

                  so does that mean someone said they 'liked' it on facebook and then the facebook system did the rest??.. ie irritating users without my knowledge?

            china manposted 8 years agoin reply to this

            It can be as simple as a 'topic' at a college ?  Here in China I used a controversial (for Chinese) debate topic "should Japan aplogise for their 1930's occupation [Nanjing mass murders etc]" 

            The information that I originally researched for the 'topic' was way down in Google, maybe page ten or fifteen, afterwards the information was on page two and stayed there as I did the same topic the following year.  The two sources that the students found on their own must have had elevated traffic.

        Actually I've heard that if they find what they actually seek in your hub or blog or whatever, then they're much less likely to click on anything.

        But I think that also happens a lot with links. People will click through if someone recommends it, read what they're directed to and go away again.

      The trick is to make sure you have two ads showing above the fold and then start your article off dully. People decide you suck and click on one of your ads instead!

      What a strategy! I've never tried it, but one day I will.
