Thanks, Sarra. You may be right about the three years - HP has long said it can take 3 years to mature a hub and several of my very early hubs have picked up speed in the last few months after sitting in the doldrums doing nothing for 2 1/2 years.
Congratulations, I am just a few weeks behind you; unless google keeps reducing the views! I should hit my million also during the start of next month... Maybe we should open a club... although I really want to join the 10 million views club..
I am getting close with all of my other sites... have diversified considerably since I started out here with HP but still find HP to be a good platform and a good contributor to my earnings. I really should add a few more hubs here as I have not been doing much over the last year or so!
Thanks, Susana. It's a great feeling, an acknowledgement that the hard work is paying off, as you well know. Perhaps the biggest milestone on HP - if you can get 1M views you can get 10M, but when just starting out with 1K views that first million seems an impossible distance away.
Patience? That's the easy part. Right now I'm in a traffic slump - the third time Google has decided my hubs aren't so great after all. So I beat on the desk and stamp my feet on the floor. I cry and I curse Google in a loud voice.
This I call "patience" (it sounds better than "temper tantrum") and seems about as effective as anything else I do.
I had hoped to make my first payout this month, but realized it was a stretch as I would have to once more double the previous month's earnings. I went to bed needing only a few more dollars and hoped to make it...
On New Year's Day I acquired my 500th follower. In addition to this, I hope to reach another milestone within the next two weeks - the 500,000th visit to my hubs in 4 years. As far as page visits is concerned my goal...
