Anyone know why page views for a particular instructable would suddenly rise? Answered

Generally, page views are highest when I have first published, and when something is featured and subsequently becomes popular. That happened with this particular instructable as well, then page views continually slowed down like normal However, today, I noticed page views have skyrocketed again. There are no significant new referring links that I can find, so does anyone have ideas on why it would jump back up so much that swiftly?


the more advertising the better posting links on blogs,joining groups etc

thr night i posted my instructable it was posted in a blog and when i woke up i had 250 views

. Somebody probably posted a link on their blog/web page/&c.

Would digg/stumbleupon show up under referring links?

nope... twitter does, but just links to the home page. I've never used twitter, but nothing else really seems like it could be responsible. Is it possible to see where visitors have come from to a particular ible?
