Another Boost in My Hub Traffic

Traffic Graph. Click on it to enlarge.
Traffic Graph. Click on it to enlarge.

Few months ago, I had written a Hub How The Traffic to My Hubs Boosted by Sharing Hubs of Other Writers? It helped many Hubbers to increase traffic to their Hubs. But in my case, as I was busy with some other work, I was not getting sufficient time to write on Hubpages. This resulted in fall of traffic to my Hubs. This thing disappointed me and I decided to give some time everyday to present on Hubpages. This policy again worked, and the traffic to my Hubs boosted and crossed previous level of high traffic.

I would like to share the statistics, which may be very useful for many Hubbers.

The graph above is from Hubpages statistics, while following statistics given below is derived from Google Analytics.

Traffic from Hubpages and Internal Links

The traffic from Hubpages is not sufficient, but not bad. Between 15th August to 14th September 630 visitors came from Hubpages.

As I have linked all my Hubs to other related Hubs, 1869 visitors came from my own Hubs in this period.

How the Traffic Increased?

After 14th July I wrote only 11 new Hubs. These hubs were written in the period of 4th August to 14th September. So actually there was not much increase in the number of Hubs. However, the traffic increased. This was because of sharing of the hub written by other Hubbers. I shared at least three to 5 Hubs every day.

As I have written in my Hub How The Traffic to My Hubs Boosted by Sharing Hubs of Other Writers? sharing increases hub traffic. What is more important that by sharing Hubs of other Hubbers, traffic from Search Engines also increases. The increase in search traffic is 44%.

So to increase traffic to your Hubs, share Hubs written by other hubbers.

I have the same questions as others about outside traffic and sharing. But it doesn't cost anything to share and it feels good to share. So we should all put it into practice. Grab some of that hubkarma (I love that word). I will do as you and make a point of sharing 3 to 5 a day. That will increase my visits to hubpages and hopefully affect my traffic. I will also increase my publishing. Hopefully I will hit that balance Healthylife mentioned. Take care and sharing.

Great advice, very useful. I am getting better at linking my hubs together but my lack of a 'niche' sometimes makes some of them difficult to link. I always try to share hubs I have enjoyed and as you say, maybe I will collect a few visitors along the way myself.

Thank you Jaye for reading this Hub. Yes, traffic to my Hubs was drastically decreased for about 15 days after late September, but now again the average page views are above 650. What is interesting to know that the major part of the traffic comes to Search Engines.

Hi, these statistics are impressive! I had already absorbed the fact of sharing, and I try to do it as much as possible. I feel that hubbers in general do not share enough. I have seen wonderful comments on other hubs, and as I read to the end I expect to see a share, and then... no such thing! I'm not refering to my own hubs, I'm talking about hubs in general. Maybe we need to do some more commenting and sharing for us all to benefit! Voted Up and more, also SHARED!

One question, though....Since your stats end at September 14, before the HP changes and also the Google algorithim changes of late September, did your traffic decrease after those events?

I am definitely sharing this hub because it contains so much good information...Voted up, useful, and interesting. Oh, and shared ;)

Very good information and I love to see charts! Sharing others hubs is good karma. Sharing with HP followers brings the article to the front page of the feed where more hubbers will see it. I try to share good hubs on one of my blogs, Pinterest, StumbleUpon, Google+ and Digg. Many times, the hubber whose hub I have shared, will share one of mine back. So now I have a hub being seen on someone else's blog, Pinterest account, etc. Sharing is always a good thing to do! Voted this up, useful, interesting and sharing! Have a wonderful day! :)

Hi jainismus. Very interesing. My traffic was steadily increasing until I took off on vaction for two weeks during which time it dropped. Not sure I understand why? Maybe becasue I wasn't active on HP during that time period? Anyway, I do share the Hubs I enjoy and this is one of them. Thanks.

What an informative article with great charts, stats and explanations! Your stats on traffic are very impressive and I find very interesting. My traffic is low although I have seen increases steadily. I do share others hubs I enjoy frequently and have links to my own relevant hubs within my hubs. Google traffic seems very low so that is what I really need to get a handle on! Thanks so much, voted this up ++++ and sharing!!!

jainismus 4 years ago from Pune, India Author

Carol, I checked some of your Hubs, found that you have neither given links to your hubs on related subjects, nor you have grouped Hubs. Internal linking is one of the most important thing to do to increase the traffic. I suggest you to give links to 4 to 6 hubs from every Hub.


carol7777 profile image

carol7777 4 years ago from Arizona

This is a most interesting hub and lots of good ideas. I must remember to link my hubs. However, I share a great many hubs and virtually have gotten minimal views from doing this. I share maybe three or four of mine a week at the most. I must be doing something wrong.

jainismus profile image

jainismus 4 years ago from Pune, India Author

cynthtggt, I checked your profile. Sharing gets more traffic if you have more Hubs and more followers. When you share, it goes to feed of all your followers. Having a large numbers of followers creates many backlinks to your Hubpages account. More backlinks = higher page ranking. I forgot to right this fact in my article.

You have 37 Hubs and 42 followers. Try to increase the numbers. When you will reach 100 hubs mark and get more than 100 followers, you will see more traffic to your Hubs than that of today.

I believe the Hubkarma effect has lead your hubs sharing factors to helping you acquire more web rep as well, besides your hubs becoming a hubpages resources of sorts, and ever since I learned about such a thing as Hubkarma, which is the linking of your hubs onto a hub you've written, and or other fellow hubbers hubs. (I like to use the suggested links option - the green tab on the top of every hub I own to create the more relevant hub links instantly)

This also has successfully impacted my hubpages traffic as well, and also because you're being indexed much higher on Google's search engine as more of a linking resource that's of relevance to what people are looking for today, and in terms of your particular subject matter you've placed into your hubs.

You are beginning to comprehend the true purpose of SEO, which is not only a factor of titling and keywords, but also pertains to how you create a resourceful article, and or webpage.

Nice job and congratulations of your newly found hub traffic boost, and overall success. I also like this hub you've created here, it is very informative, helpful, and showcases a useful method in helping others to do as you've learned to do. Awesome stuff! bro.

Thumbs up and out!

Very interesting. I was worried that sharing could be viewed as a negative. I don't share often, but will start sharing a little more often (but not too often that I spam my followers). Great Hub.

I have the same questions as Steel Engineer, which of course you've already addressed. I don't understand how it would effect outside traffic but if it does it does.

It is a curious question...

The potential benefits of sharing are enough to warrant experimentation. And this doesn't really cost anything more than a bit of time.

It isn't really possible to divide the results of sharing from any other variable that might be going on because many variables on the internet are completely beyond our control. Even if you didn't publish a single hub during the time that you were sharing there would still be other variables that you wouldn't be able to account for.

I guess that the long and the short of it is that if you try this and it doesn't work then you haven't really lost anything.

Steel Engineer , Thank you for reading and commenting. I had the same questions that you have asked. I read somewhere that as our Hubpages account is considered as a separate website and when we share a Hub of other Hubber on it , for search engines it becomes important. The search engines consider this as an activity on our site. But I do not know much about it. What is important that when we share we get traffic from search engines.

I just checked traffic to my new Hubs in this period, but there is no much traffic from google to newer hubs.

Steel Engineer profile image

Steel Engineer 4 years ago from Kiev, Ukraine

The result is clear. But, here is a big question: HOW does sharing someone else's hubs bring more SEARCH traffic to your hubs? I can see it bringing direct traffic, or maybe even referral traffic.

But, how does sharing someone else's hub cause your own hubs to appear more in search results? I see from your data table the searches came mostly via Google.

It makes no sense to me. You published a few new hubs during that time. What is the Google search traffic to the new hubs? Can these hubs account for all the new traffic?


cynthtggt profile image

cynthtggt 4 years ago from New York, NY

I am amazed how much traffic you have. Looking at your stats I know something is definitely wrong with my ability to share. I can't share through FAcebook, for one thing. I do not believe my traffic is being tracked and I am having the most absolute difficulty getting Google analytics. Also, whenever I try to set up my accounts, they are deleted the next day. Thanks for this hub. It is very informative. Voted up.
