I have a hub out there that only had about 6-10 hits a day. All of a sudden, goes up to over 600. Stats say it's coming from facebook, m.facebook, & t.co, which is connected to Twitter. I haven't been sharing it at all. A large bunch of the hits coming from m.facebook is one of my FB friends. It just seems like a huge jump for a nothing hub to go crazy.
I'm afraid it will look like I have done something to get more clicks unfairly. I just don't want to be cut off when I don't know what the heck is going on with it.
This has happened to me on several occasions. Overall it is not a bad thing. Views on your hub is not like clicks on Google ads. An increase in views is a good thing, however a sudden increase in Google ad clicks is not, lol.
Enjoy the surge. Over time I have been able to track several surges back to where the hub was featured on some related page that had the Twitter and Facebook share options there.
Most likely other people are sharing it, which is good.
Sounds like a good thing to me! It's like going viral on a small scale! I had one of my hubs shared on Facebook and got close to 400 likes in 24 hours and I don't put any of my hubs on Facebook so it was a pleasant surprise! I don't think you will be penalized for it. Enjoy the boost in traffic!

Anybody else experience sudden surge in traffic ? My page got very low traffic for the past 2 days but last night the traffic is 5 times as much. Should I be wary of some mischievous act happening ?

I haven't written anything for months on HP, but have just started again. With the hubs being held before being featured, do you normally shared them on fb right away or wait until they're featured? Sounds like a dumb...

If I Tweet another hubbers hub because I really like it, is this a good thing? Or is it......an insult to that hubber? I have been reading about people who take another hubbers work and put it on their own stuff. Is...

I would love to see a feature that Hubbers could explain - in say, maybe 100 characters? - why they are sharing a particular Hub with their followers. I just shared a Hub but would love to have been able to tell people...
