Yesterday my blog received 971 views. Considering that my blog had averaged 360 views a day for the first seven days this month, getting 971 in one day was quite an anomaly.
I suppose every blogger has had this happen once in a while. It happened to me once before. Back in May of 2019, my blog got 1,556 views in one day. And what stood out on that day was that more than 60% — 952 — were from Germany.
But yesterday, more than two-thirds of my views were from the U.S., which is higher than my typical day, where U.S. views run between 30 to 40 percent of my total views. And as to likes and comments, they were pretty much in line with the number of likes and comments I get on a typical day, so way fewer, given the number of views I got, than one would expect.
I have no idea what caused my blog’s views to spike yesterday. Things are back to “normal” today, as by 12:30 pm, I’ve gotten 232 views, 110 of which have been from the U.S.
Have any of you had any unusual or unexplainable spikes in your views lately?
