    When I checked my stats this morning one hub, written a few days ago, was showing 66 views instead of the expected 5 or 6 as it tapered off from the initial surge of hubbers checking it out.  It also had several comments (I normally don't get even 1 per day overall) and I had several new followers.

    Finally traced it down - it is listed as the hub of the day today, my first experience there.  I can't figure out whether to thank HP or throw rocks at them:

    That new hub has now produced 13 comments today, and probably more than than that in new followers.  It has set a new record for the most 24 hour views for any one hub at 250 views.  Because of it a new record for total 24 hour views.  It now has more "ever" views than some hubs over a year old at 300.  Yay, HP, and thank you!

    However, it has produced no clicks (of course not - hubbers know better) and I feel obligated to answer nearly every comment not only on that hub but on one of the commenters as well.  Every new follower needs a response.  I've written more comments today than in the last month!  Boo, HP (throws rocks).

    I guess overall I have to go with the Yay HP, though - those numbers look awfully nice even without income. smile (And for the newbies here, please do NOT run over and click ads - that happened once before and it wasn't pretty!)

    Question is, has any other "hub of the day" winners seen this kind of thing?  Is this common?  I would never have thought I would see 250 hubber views on any hub, let alone a brand new one!

      While it doesn't help directly with earnings, I got a lot of backlinks when my hub was hub of the day and I got an interview out of it so it was definitely worthwhile.

      Plus, sometimes followers will link to you, so the more the merrier. smile

    ...and yes - I have a Hub of the Day right now, and have had more comments on any single hub in one day than in a while - except for HubNuggets hubs, which sometimes get quite a few comments. Also, views are substantially up over the last couple of days, so having a Hub of the Day really helps out all around. Answering comments, commenting back, and visiting fans can keep you delightfully busy for a while - fun stuff! Yay, HubPages!

      Hey!  I did notice your name right next to mine, now that you mention it!  It's slowed down for the moment - maybe I'll take a look-see.

    Kewl - I check out the Hubs of the Day quite often, as do a lot of others, I expect. Good place to find new hubs by writers I may not know well yet.

    Yes the surge in traffic does happen when its a hub of the day, but as most of the traffic is internally diverted from hubpages it gets no clicks. Still its nice to know that something you wrote was considered that high in quality, right?!

      wildernessposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      Most!?  Out of 275 views as of right now exactly 3 aren't from HP.  Yes, it's all hubbers, who don't click.  I'll see tomorrow if I earn anything from it from HPads, but if so it won't be much.

      That's all right, though - as you say it's nice to be recognized as writing a high quality hub.  A feel good thing only, but still nice and it is appreciated.

    Yeah, it did bring me around 270 views on day one and half the number of views the next couple of days until it tapered off at the end of the week to its usual 10 - 15 views. The number of followers did increase but after a week some did drop off as I do not follow many people.. I just can't keep track of so many hubs in a day... Its all part of the game called hubbing so enjoy it while it lasts!!

      Oh, I'm enjoying it all right! 

      I just would never have thought, judging from the number of people on the forums, that it would make such an increase in views.
