I bet you didn't know that Hubs are numbered in order.
If you are editing your Hub, and you look at the URL while you are in edit-mode, you will see a number at the end. That number indicates the order in which your Hub was created in with all the others. Of course, Hubs get deleted, so there are probably millions of Hub numbers missing from the site.
What's the number of your oldest/first Hub?
My oldest/first hub shows #421, meaning it was the 421st Hub created on the site. (Eight years ago this very month)
What's the number on the first Hub you ever created?
I have always noticed that number while in edit mode, but I never knew it was a sequential counter of all hubs. I already deleted my first hubs a long time ago, but the oldest I have at this time is numbered 911,063. It's from Oct 2009.
Yeah, I meant at that time. But presently the number of hubs is decreasing. A year ago in July 2013 we had 1,051,759 published hubs. Now in July 2014 we have only 845,280 published hubs. I've been keeping tabs on that. Source: http://hubpages.com/about/us
I've deleted a lot, but my oldest remaining (and probably one of the few first handful I did when I first signed up) has 90491 (November 5, 2007). (And I've never known that number is what it is. I tend not to notice those things - so thanks. )
You know what one of the most interesting things about these stats is?
You know how you always read posts where people say they can't think of a good title because they can't come up with a unique URL? For almost four million times, people on this site actually have managed to come up with a unique URL. And they keep doing it.
(Still gets consistent views. But my one on friends got me nominated for a Hub Nugget - if you remember those - in that first week. It was a great way to start. Then I was one of the 100 best new hubbers of that year. Haven't won anything since!!!)
I took my 30-days page views count; divided it by 30 and further divided it by the number of published hubs. Thus I got a fair representation of my average number of visitors per day per hub. It comes to a whopping 1.6!...

Hi Fellow Hubbers!I have done a bit of (unscientific) averaging of AdSense income on HubPages.com, and calculated an earnings rule for Hubs:On average, any given hub will earn about $10.00 per year.My page showing my...
I just received an email congratulating me for one of my hubs being selected as "Editor's Choice". It didn't tell me which hub was selected however and I checked my stats and there is no new hub labelled...
