Is Your best hub "your best"?

    Do you have a hub that you think is the best? Does it actually get the best views?

      Strangely enough, the hubs that I think are the best, don't always get the most views. Some of the ones that I wrote on the fly, with very little research, have done better than ones I spent a lot of time on. I have one that I am very proud of, but it doesn't get a huge amount of traffic.

        I.have one that I just threw together that had just taken off. Ones that I put a lot of passion in, aren't doing so well.

      Not at all, actually.  I was just musing about the fact that several of the hubs that I consider my "middle-weights" seem to get the most views as well as Editor's Choice and so forth.  Regardless, I'll write about what I enjoy writing about rather than cater to traffic.

        I agree with this! I write what comes to mind.

      The hub that took the most for me to craft has gotten the second-most total views out of all my hubs.

        I wish mine were that way. Some of the common knowledge for has went further than the actually researched.

      Nope. My best written hubs are not the ones that give the most views.

    I define "best" as the Hubs which receive the most search engine traffic.

      I can write about lots of topics, but for me the "best" means to have a brilliant idea and give readers something of value that's hard to find anywhere else. Then, traffic will come naturally.

    Good question. I find that generally, the hubs that I worked harder on or follow the HP format, are my best hubs and get the most views. But there are some that aren't getting many views at all that I think are way better than some that received an EC?! Then there are also those that I see as my best, getting decent views that aren't EC. It is kind of confusing to tell the truth. I think it depends on the topic and the title. You can't always tell which will do well and which won't, regardless of how well done it is. Just keep producing quality, stellar hubs. You will win in the end with views and earnings . . . in due time.

    My best hubs are the one that I am most passionate about and enjoyed writing about the most, and they definitely don't get a lot of views, since they tend to be slightly more niche.

    One of my favorite hubs to ever write was just made HOTD on Saturday though, so that kind of paid off. My highest viewed Hub is about a plant I couldn't give a rip about, and the other is about curling hair, which is something I do approximately once a year.

    The matrix or indices used by HP are not necessarily the same as what your idea of a "best hub" is.

    I have quite a small collection of hubs thus far (eight published so far) and the one I like the best (Best websites for Booklovers) only got a wee little bit of attention. I love that one the most because it best represents who I am (a chronic book hoarder & bibliophile. smile and I had the easiest time writing it because I frequent all the websites and book blogs I wrote about...

    I just published one about winter safety and first aid that took me *forever* to write. A few weeks. I kept going back to it because I kept coming up with more info I wanted to add to it, which required more research. I also wanted to be sure that it hit all of the criteria that HP recommends for a stellar hub... I added pictures, video, tables, a quiz and hit just under 4,400 words.. I thought for sure I would get *something* out of all that work... HOTD, Editors Choice.. anything... But it's barely been noticed. I will concede that it's only recently been published... I wasn't sure if I should post it right away or wait until it's further into the winter season, as it might get more traffic once winter actually hits- but there's "pre-winter" tips in there too, so I went for it and published it now.. Maybe once people are huddled inside more once the cold hits that hub will become my "best" as far as traffic.

    For now, none of my hubs get a lot of traffic. I've given up the idea that I'll ever be that hubber with 1000s of followers. I've decided I'm just writing because I enjoy it and I love the challenge of trying to make sure all of my hubs get featured.

      That's the way I have started thinking. Write just to write. Maybe one day I'll get somewhere ewith them.

    I loathe my best performing hub/highest hub score hub. I hate it with a passion.

    It's was a HOD, it gets a ridiculous amount of Google traffic, it stays at a 99-100 hubscore. If I was the masochistic sort who didn't like money, I would unpublish it and then completely delete it from existence.

    I know WHY it is successful and could probably duplicate it again, but I would hate myself every hour of every day for it.
