      BAD NEWS Shaye!

      I posted something similar last week and was informed that we have a glitch in the sytem.

      If all the traffic relates only to hubpages then yeah.  Enjoy the free numbers boost.

      If the traffic had been from an outside source than maybe someone on the other side of the earth could've posted a link to you that blew up but no.  This has happened to several people in the last couple weeks.

        Thanks for bursting my bubble DJFuncktual!

        Oh well : ( It was exciting while it lasted....    the number of hits is the same now as I write this as it was 7 hours or so ago.... so it seams that this is exactly what happended. One of my other hubs had an increase last night too but it was only by 15 hits, so that seams more like my daily average. 

        I'll take your advice and just enjoy the hub score love : )

    Well if I work it out I will let you all know - I would love to know how it happened so I could do it again!

    I did a quick backlink check on the hubpage url and couldn't see anything that I hadn't generated?

    It's a bit of a mystery but I am going to do my best possible Erin Brockavich (sp?) impersonation and solve this one : )

    Tnks for replying SirDent
