I just reached 100,000 views on 35 Hubs. (I only had 2 beginning in May of this year.) So, you can get great traffic from Google on HubPages! I'm happy about the traffic, but I wish the CPM were higher.
Congrats!!! I love hearing about Hubbers reaching different milestones. I completely missed my 1,000,000 views milestone. Of course, I have been here a long time. It's great to reach new milestones like that, and know that you are on the right track. I don't think I had that many views with only 35 Hubs!!
Thanks. How could you miss noticing your milestone? I know it takes a few days for the accolade to appear, but didn't you notice when you were getting close? A million views from Hubs is quite an achievement.
Congratulations, Writer Fox! That is an accomplishment, indeed! You must be a master at picking the right topics and keywords to get all of that traffic--I just recently hit 100,000 views on my 75+ hubs after some of them had been published for over 3 years. I'm totally jealous and proud of you! Keep up the good work!
Congratulations! You are a beacon of hope. I've only published three so far, and the third has the lowest Hubpages rating. My score seems to swing between 79 and 87. It might have something to do with the topics as I'm not searching out specific 'key phrases' in search of a topic; but do it later to include in topic. I'm just writing randomly, about whatever comes to mind. My first was the best, so I must have lucked out on that one. Just getting a handle on the way the new Keyword Tool works; was trying to avoid it. :0
Writer Fox, Congratulations. Wow! That's a lot of views. I know what CPC is but what is CPM? Do you write summaries with different content for your hubs and link back to hubpages on bubblews. That's not illegal to do. For my children's book article, I took a different slant on bubblews and linked it back to the article and get hits there with more lucrative results. I have a business blog too and when I blog about an article on hubpages, the google ads I have running on that page get clicks
I still think that the best thing we can do for each other and for all small business (and I checked this out with hubpages) is to notice the ads that appear on hubs we read, and if we are TRULY interested, then click the ads to help each other along. Hubpage staff replied to me that if you are sincerely interested in an ad, it's ok to click. I did that on a hub I read about fragrances and clicked on an ebay ad that introduced me to a place that sells lovely oils that I ordered right then and there. Another time on a friend's blog I made a point to notice an ad and I can't remember now, but it was an ad for something that I really knew a friend of mine would love and passed it on.
I have an app that I decided to give away as a free Android download (because no one will pay even 99 cents for an app). I have had over 2000 downloads of that app and made 8 cents with Admob. Eight cents! It took me WEEKS to create that app. I keep telling our adult kids that, like they say in that insurance commercial, everything can't cost 5 cents! If writers are going to survive to write another day, it's my feeling that we have to support each other in this way. Again, I stress I'm not talking about spamming or any such thing - just NOTICING something we might be interested in and taking the time to click and check it out. That's a small price to pay for reading a really informative or inspiring piece of writing!
Thank you, Bille. CPM is the amount you are paid on the HubPages Ad Program per 1,000 views. (I'm getting more than 10,000 views per week now.) The higher the CPM, the more money you make. You earn this in addition to Amazon, eBay and your personal AdSense.
I'm not on Bubblews but it sounds like a good place to get links. I know that a few people have linked to my Hubs from there.
WF, Yep, It's a good place to set up your profile and then write a little blurb about your hub and then link to it. For example, under "Business" or "Tech" or "Tutorials" you could list all of your free picture hubs (Thanksgiving, Hearts, etc.) with a title like, "Dress Up Your Blog" or "Copyright Infringement - Me?" or something and then give a little blurb about being careful with images on the web. (I had a friend who was fined $1000 for using an istockphoto improperly) It wouldn't have to be more than a few sentences then have a list of all your hubs with the free pictures and link back to them. (I made $2 since the weekend) and didn't do a thing. I only have a few little pieces there. I'm sparky with a capital "S". Let me know if you link there. I have to follow some other people there as well - didn't get around to it!
Billie Kelpin, you are right, I believe that writers should help one another. There is nothing bad if you click on the advert on your fellow writer page SO FAR you are clicking it because you find it relevant to you and NOT just spamming.
Adept2012. See? I just went to your Scholar hub to see what ads were there. (I'll read your article later, but wanted to see if my theory works). So, we live in Laguna Hills, CA and are moving out of our condo. My husband is a software engineer and we have lots of electronics to ditch. Right there on your hub was an ad for OC electronics recyling! They pick up! I didn't know! So I bookmarked it for later. Ta DA!
Thank you, Healthylife2. Actually, I did it in six months. All but two of my Hubs have been published since May. (I published three of them in the last 30 days and I didn't count the one I published yesterday.)
Congratulations for a great achievement. In five months, you have reached a milestone many people hope to achieve after two or three years. I have been here three years, and your feat amazes me. Maybe you could write a hub on finding success quickly on HubPages. Cheers Audrey
I usually don't post milestones in the forum, but wanted to share this one with you. Hopefully it will encourage others.I reached 100,000 views sometime in Sept or Oct., 2011 Yesterday or very early this morning I...
I realize that this number is not considered as particularly high especially after writing here for over a year and having close to 50 hubs. Yet I feel it is an accomplishment, at least for me. We all have...
Woop, woop . . . I hit another milestone today, 100,000 views to my hubs. Yeaaay! I'm grateful to all of my fellow hubbers who read and share my hubs. But I'm eternally grateful to those who come by way of organic...
