Why would my views triple over one day, then drop back down to normal?
Did you look to see which hub(s) got the hits and from where?
You were loved. And now you’re not.
Seriously, someone probably posted an organic link which can result in a sudden, but usually short flurry.
There is one hub whose views are ridiculously high for the last seven days. Not a how to or a real product related one either.
Bizarre, but it's facebook. And paradigm, that's the story of my life!
It has been shared on Facebook then, you can see how many facebook likes it has at the top of each hubpage. I get flurries from facebook too.
Same thing happened to me...I got almost 4000 likes on an article and it shot way up, it's still doing well. Someone must have posted it on their facebook and it took off. Enjoy it!
Ryan, you're right. I got a 174 "likes" on Facebook for that hub!
Of course, it would be the only hub I have that's remotely bordering on pornographic...lol!
DIY, I had the same thing happen for the last couple of days (several hundred sudden views on a "quiet" hub). It's happened before, too, and the views come from Facebook. Since I do no marketing for myself at all, I'm assuming someone else has been pushing the article...?
Yes, I just found it on Facebook. The admin for the site had posted my hub and it got a ton of comments...cult following kind of thing. No wonder I saw my Adsense jump up that day!
And by the way, I posted one on Facebook of yours one time...is that legal?
Are you talking to me? If it was just a link, then I thank you. I'm hoping you don't mean the whole article?
Sorry, yes Shogan, I was talking to you. I posted the link to your children's lit one. Hope that's OK. I work with children's programs and so do alot of my friends and I particularly liked the article and wanted to share it.
Shogan, my five minutes of fame are gone, too, but it was fun while it lasted! Now even my author score is dropping!
You took AWAY tags and your hubkarma went up? That makes no sense to me!
Yeah, between this and that other thread I posted...I seem to attract some strange events. I added no more links. I simply edited and changed some tags (streamlined them, really), and HubKarma went noticeably up. I thought HubKarma was only related to # of links?
Me, too. We should stop trying to understand what goes on with the scores, seems to be no rhyme or reason. Maybe we should just give it up, ignore all that stuff and just write!
Eh...I'm at a standstill. I'm having a hard time getting the right motivation to write hubs.

So, I just logged in after almost 18 hours without power, to discover that my article on The Woodmen's Circle Home is getting slammed with traffic. It usually gets under 100 views in a day. So far today, Google Analytics says it's at almost 10,000 views, and rising.I can trace it back as far as...

First a disclaimer is in order.I broke the evergreen rule with this approach. I knew it going in and did it anyway. What the hell, sometimes rules are made to be broken. Sometimes a gamble pays off, often it doesn't. I do live in Las Vegas though so it is in my blood! Hubs should be on evergreen...

One of my game guides gets 100 views a week, even though the game came out in 2014. When I wrote it, I didn't really think it'd do as well as it is. Have any of your articles done surprisingly well?

Has your hub traffic improved slowly?

You have 1k likes on Facebook. I think that did it.

I hear people talking all the time about hubs that produce good readership, but I know this number differs for many. In your case, how many views per month do you think is good for any given article? Just curious.
