What The Page Views Header Column Tells Us (if we look)

Taking advantage of the fine tools HubPages has provided is easy, interesting, and potentially productive. Here's one Hubber's take on doing so.

Wouldn't it interest you to know which of your Hubs has had the most dialog with other Hubbers during your time on HubPages?

You can, and it's easy; just click twice on the heading "Comments" at the top of the Page Views Header Bar on your Hub Statistics page.

Voila! Right in front of you is that information, along with the second-most, third-most, etc.

What does finding that information do for you (besides giving you a warm and fuzzy feeling?) It tells you that, at the time you wrote that Hub, and with additional dialog since then, that was a subject other Hubbers found of real nterest.

Now, granted the Hub Community is erudite, exceptional, extraordinary, and qualifies for a whole bunch of other superlatives, but I think you will agree that your reading public on facebook, twitter, and all the other social media outlets you posted that article on, probably stirred some commentary among those viewers, too.

What else can we learn from that Header Bar?

How about which of your Hubs has been viewed the most times over your participation on HubPages?

For that information, just double click on "Ever" and, once again, there 's the answer.

That information can surprise you even more when you find that your Hub articles, poems, stories, etc. with the most views "Ever" may not be those with your highest Hub scores!

Knowing that might lead you to examine why, and use that knowledge to make your next Hubs even more attractive, informative, better researched or illustrated, etc., and that just might lead to making you more money here on HubPages!

One last thought on this treasure trove of information: by looking in the same way (double clicking) on the other categories on the Page Views Header Bar you can find out what older Hubs are still getting regular page views, and either add them as links to new Hubs, or add "gently viewed" Hubs as links to those steady producers to get the "gently viewed" Hubs more ongoing exposure.

Just some thoughts from Perspycacious.

Wishing you even happier Hubbing!
