Has This Ever Happened To You?

Hey Gang!

The other day my blog got over 3000 previews in one day!  From
9:00 am to about 4:00 pm.  I normally get about 250-300 previews
a day.  So this was a big jump!

It wasn't like any page got a lot of hits either!  Oh and have you noticed the page
previews never match the total of preview for the day?  Yeah, I guess there would
be pages that only get one hit but not that many. If anyone really understands
that whole thing, please explain it to me!

The last time something like this happened my blog was copied!  I hope that isn't what was happening.

OK, Thanks For Looking!

Hi Ms. Leo, I checked and I have this amount for a whole month, but I don't have the same amount of followers as your blog. It is a big difference though! I don't know how the statistics work exactly, maybe you can go to Blogger help desk to find out what causes this?

Copied?! Oh my...
Yeah, maybe you can search the help forums for an answer? I had an inexplicable boost (not as spectacular as yours, but pretty impressive) once but I assumed it was related to several people pinning me on Pinterest and in some other places. It lasted for a good few weeks I think.

this has happened to me once or twice. check the traffic source. For me the above thousands was from a site that just hits pages over and over. (for what reason?) other spikes are caused when someone super popular post to pinterest or a link on their blog.

Congrats on that leap ;-)

Don't think I've had that many in one day.

Hi Ms. Leo, this has appened to me, and I checked various sources in internet. It is very probable this is spam. the best way to check the real statistics of your blog is using google analytics. You just have to follow the instructions:
You will be able to get a lot of interesting informations about your readers and how they actually live the experience on your blog.

What everybody else said - either it's spam, or someone popular linked to you! Hopefully the latter. Google Analytics is really useful, but you should be able to see the source of the traffic on the regular statistics page too.

Wow! I hope it is not copied. I have never had a huge hit like that before. I wonder if it has anything to do with key words in the post that resulted in several people googling whatever was the keywords. Just a thought. I am always curious when I get a lot of views.

Ms. Leo said...

Thanks for your Night Owl, BlackKitty, Miss Missy, D7ana, Billa, Anderson's All-Purpose, comments and Georgia Girl!

Night Owl, I glad I'm not along in not knowing.

BlackKitty, I never thought about Pinterest. Hmm..

Miss Missy, I will check that too!

D7ana, I don't know if you should wish me congrats or cross yourself!

Billa, thanks for the info. I'll check it out!

Anderson's All-Purpose, I hope it is just spam. I hasn't happened any other day since.

Georgia Girl, I have notice that the labels I use will get me more hits but I didn't use anything that I thougt would do that. Hmmm.

That happened to me once a couple years ago. I don't know what it was, but I know Google canceled my Adsense account shortly after that without explanation. They did ask me if I had paid someone to boost my views. I told them no, but they still won't give me back my Adsense account. I imagine what happened to me is what Missy describes. I don't know why someone would do that. I hope it's just a fluke for you, that doesn't turn into something more serious.

This has never happened to me. I didn't know that Google would cancel Adsense after an unexpected boost in views.

Ms. Leo said...

Thanks for your comments Vanessa and RoxanneRoxanne!

Vanessa, I hope it is a fluke too!

RoxanneRoxanne, I didn't know they would do that either.
