Does the rising star award help your traffic overall?
I have recently achieved the rising star accolade, and I'm wondering whether it makes a long term difference to your stats? For example, after the newsletter has went out and everything has settled, do you still get a steady stream of traffic to the hub or profile?

I just received word that one of my hubs got the Rising Star award! I am so excited and feel so blessed. I enjoy writing so much and these little milestones are a big encouragement. Thanks to all the wonderful hubbers out there for making this place welcoming!
