Guess my Traffic Amount

    Ben Blackwellposted 4 years ago

    I asked this in the questions section, but it was removed because the moderators felt it belonged here, so I'm posting it here now.

    I am curious about how much traffic you think I receive daily based on having 26 featured articles, 43 followers, being here for 2 months, and any other factors you feel are appropriate.

    My guess is approximately 100 hits per day?

      Ok, thanks for replying.  I suppose I'll reveal how much it is in reality after a few people post and then try to figure out the discrepancy if there is one.

    Looking at the titles of your hubs I would guess around 20 hits per day...

      Why the titles?

      1. LeanMan profile image82
        LeanManposted 4 years ago in reply to this

        Because they should reflect on the whole what people are searching for; if your title is "The philosophy of Isaac Asimov" how many people do you think are likely to search for that every day?
        Then consider "How to stop trolls on Facebook" or "How to get rid of spots"..
        To get traffic something has to be searched for; while the title is not the whole story it makes up a significant chunk of how google knows what traffic to send you.

          I see.  Perhaps I will re-read my hubs, find what is most prominent, and reflect that in the title.  A simple idea I overlooked.  Thanks.

    Most of your 26 Hubs haven't had 100 views.  You got your 1,000 view accolade a month ago.  Your total views are probably between 1,000 – 2,000 for the two months you've been publishing here. Some keyword research might help you improve your traffic.

      He probably wants a view more people to take the bait and visit his Hubs before he discloses that information.

    So this is how you get traffic. Clever. I guess   2500 views.

      Ben Blackwellposted 4 years ago in reply to this

      I actually wasn't thinking about people reading my hubs.  I figured they could get the info they needed by looking at my profile.  Anyway, I get about 20 views a day now with 2,437 total, but I used to get about 50 a day.  I wanted to see if people would leave a guess, than the reasons, and they did.  The title suggestion, among others, should help.

    I have changed around a few of my titles, but they might be too long now.  I'll see if they work out over the next week or so.

    1. LeanMan profile image82
      LeanManposted 4 years ago in reply to this

      When you open one of your hubs click the "stats" button next to edit. There is a tab labeled "search" and this tells you what people entered into the search engines to find your hub. This will give you some idea of what google and the others think your hub is about and deserves traffic for.

    On your Account page, click on Traffic Sources and see where most of your traffic comes from.  You shouldn't be relying on HP traffic. To be successful you need search engines to be sending readers.  Generating clicks from hubbers via forums etc is not a strategy for long term success.

    In many ways it is not the quantity of hits you should be worrying about, but the quality. smile

      Thanks for the input.  I didn't actually make this forum page for that purpose, but I can see how it can appear in that way.

    Ben, you are doing much better than me. I have 28 featured hubs but my traffic range is from 8 to 15 views per day. Once in a while I will get over 20 views. Rare.

    I joined 3 years ago and am still here because I like the community in HP.

      It looks like you're doing pretty well.  10k views and you have some pretty good hubs.

    I have been at HP for three months now and got about 33 featured hubs and about 139000 views but I love the community and hope the traffic to rise good luck Ben

    I joined 2 months ago, wrote 4 hubs, but am not getting any traffic from search engines. Can you tell me how long till I start to see any traffic?

    Good going but a long way from impossible. It is only a bit more than a thousand views a day, which a couple of good pages can bring in on a shiny new sub-domain.

      AMAZING THINKERposted 4 years ago in reply to this

      Great! let me know.
      Can you guys please check if my hubs are okay?
      I am new here, need some suggestions.

        Your pages seem Ok.

        You need to develop good instincts for subjects that will prove popular and have not already been written about widely.

        Then you need some luck, lol.

          What about mine Will?
          Only, I don't want criticism, just compliments please.
          If you don't like them... just pretend. Im easily fooled.

          ...sounds kind of tricky.
          I'll try.

          I found the Google keyword tool, it's great.
          Now I get what you said.
          Thanks Will!
