    I posted this elsewhere but Nelle says it deserves its own thread smile

    I have been worried all weekend there was some sort of attack on my AdSense. I have had 5 or 6 times the traffic and clicks in 3 days as I had for the entire month. There have been about 100,000 on one hub. However, after talking about it with several people, emailing HubPages and Adsense as well, it seems to be legitimate. Most of the hits are coming from Google.

    I think I can thank Facebook for this, the weekend push for making avatars cartoon characters means a lot of people were searching on this category. My hub is my top 10 picks for TV cartoon characters from the 50s and 60s which is number one on Google for that topic.

    I don't expect this to last and I'm sure my earnings will go back down to their usual levels by tomorrow. Still, it has been an amazing ride.

    It goes to show you that you can earn on those type of hubs that are not seen as particularly commercial or are specifically sales hubs. It all basically depends on what is trending on Google at any one time.

    100,000 visitors in a few days is awesome. It's great to see that FB traffic can covert as well! (I guess you can definitely get that Beatles collection that you've been wanting.)

    I hope your success makes the HP front page, because it's great to see a non-commercial hub hit it big.

    I saw a post on facebook about replacing your profile image with your favourite cartoon character from your childhood. No human faces until December 6th for NSPCC against child abuse. So everyone is looking for cartoon character images! Must have gone viral and maybe that's why you're getting this traffic.
