Something's up on one of my hubs and while I'm ecstatic, I'm also a little worried. Basically one of my dormant hubs went from 3-4 views a day, to about 2000 views (from Google) in an hour.
My question is whether or not I need to report this to Adsense and how I can figure out what's going on. I don't seem to be ranking for the phrase itself, and secondly it doesn't seem to be a high volume keyword anyway. What gives? Anyone have an experience like this?
That happened to one of mine about this time last year. I ended up getting like 100,000 in one weekend. I freaked out and I did write a note to Adsense, but they didn't answer and I did get paid.
What happened to mine was an event on Facebook that went viral and my hub fit the bill.
Thanks uninvited, due to the fact that analytics have yet to roll over, is there a way I can tell where the hell the traffic is coming from? The stats on the hub itself indicate only google.com as the referrer, but I don't seem to be ranking for the phrase itself. /boggle.
I had one of mine do that to a lesser extent a few weeks ago... all the traffic was from google Brazil. Apparently an obscure 80's cartoon shares the name of a not so obscure Brazilian pop band who was in the news down there.
If you use Google Analytics it will show you exactly where the traffic is coming from.

I have multiple sites that haven't moved a bit. They're still on the same page, at the same rank, for the same key words. The traffic for those hubs, particularly one, is down over 80% though! Any thoughts? It's never been this low for those sites. I would understand...

This might be a complete co-incidence, but I switched to the new profile a couple of days ago, and today Google is pretending it doesn't know me. Hubs that ranked on the first page for main keyword are not found in the first 10 pages. Even more worrying, I can't find them in Google even...

If a hub is not featured does that mean that it doesn't get any search engine traffic from Google or other search engines?

Has anyone else experienced this? If not, how can I troubleshoot it?Within the past 24-48 hrs, traffic from all Google sources (all countries) dropped to zero (0). I got one from Bing and some from HubPages. I had been getting at least 30/day from Google sources--not a lot, but enough for me to see...

I don't have big hub numbers but my Google traffic has gone from 40 - 60 views per day to nil and hubs that were in the top ten search results have suddenly disappeared.This is true of hubs I've had for a couple of months, and hubs I wrote within the last week.I've seen numerous comments about...

Thought I would post this to see what other people's experiences are. I recently had a flood of hundreds of Google visitors to one of my hubs, which one would think would equate to many monies. Everywhere I go on this great interwebs, I seem to run into the refrain of Google traffic being the be...
