6,666 Comments Have Told Me What?
137 Comments From every 1,000 Views
I have no personal knowledge as to whether that is a good ratio of comments to views or not, and if my own replies to comments are themselves part of the 6,666 total (and I reply to most comments) then I am receiving something more like 69 comments for every 1,000 views. That's probably not too impressive, at least it feels unimpressive as I think about it.
48,800 views has an impressive sound, and of the 785 Hubs I have published, some I have withdrawn because I didn't care for their quality, or they were dated by the passage of time and events such as past elections. But if I just examine the number, and some Hubbers here have ten times 48,800 views, then the average number of views per Hub is 62.
That doesn't sound too bad, until I recognize that five of my Hubs have 9.054 of the 48.800 views, making the average views for the other 780 just 51 views per Hub.
In the process of doing this overview I noticed that HP has set new limits on Amazon and ebay ads and had recently labeled 17 of my Hubs as being in violation (those little red stinkers they add to a Hub's listing.) So I temporarily unpublished those until I can go back and see what made me a naughty boy 17 times.
That aside, if I calculate what I make for writing and publishing a Hub that on average has about 51 views, I get a clear picture of what my time writing an average Hub is going to earn me given my presently poor efforts at marketing my Hubs for more views.
Try a little of this math overview using your own statistics and see why you may be a Hubber like me who either starts giving more attention to marketing Hubs of increasing popularity for more views, or contemplates just writing and publishing for what else you get out of publishing here, such as critiques, friendships with other writers and photographers, and just seeing things you write getting out there in print.
Blessings, and make the time count.
