    OK, so I'm 7 followers away from 100! I am actually quite excited. 100 may be small fries for some of you, but I'm counting down!!! Anyone else close to meeting their own little milestones?

      I met my first milestone goals yesterday: 10 featured hubs, and 1,000 page views. Not bad for just three weeks on the site!

        Congratulations. My squidoo lenses garnered me two milestones , my 10th and 25 Hubs. I joined HP about 3 weeks ago.

      62 Hubs is impressive, too.  Way to go!

        Thanks so much! I have a target of doing 100 by the end of the year, so 38 hubs in 15 weeks! I'm sure I'll manage :-p

      Looking back on the state of content sites and the Internet, I think I have achieved all of the reasonable achievements here.

      I don't think any individual user will ever get the 100 million page view accolade.  Based on how long it took people to hit the 10 million views accolade, and based on what Google did to the traffic overall, I think accolades here have topped out.

      1. Writer Fox profile image76
        Writer Foxposted 2 years ago in reply to this

        I think most people who have the 10 million views accolade got that before the first Google Panda Algorithm was introduced in February 2011.  I certainly haven't seen anyone announce recently that they have reached that many views.

        Then how about accolades for 25 and 50 million? Any interest in convincing the HP staff to add them?

          Or one for every 5 million.  This is making me want McDonald's for lunch - over 50 billion served...

            50 billion? Does that mean McDonalds hamburgers have gone viral? Imagine their SERPs.

    Well done!!!! All the early stuff is really exciting!!!!! What are you next aiming for? I would love a Hub of the day, but I dont think any of mine would be considered! A girl can dream, though!

    1. lisavollrath profile image89
      lisavollrathposted 2 years ago in reply to this

      I guess my next goal would be 100 hubs. When my Squidoo lenses finally transfer over, I'll be halfway there.

      1. sparkleyfinger profile image90
        sparkleyfingerposted 2 years ago in reply to this

        Yeah, if they're half as creative as some of your existing hubs, you'll do very well! Already following you, and look forward to seeing more of your work :-)

      What is the Hub the Day? Is this the same as Editor's Choice?

      1. Solaras profile image91
        Solarasposted 2 years ago in reply to this

        Everyday a different Hub is selected by staff as the Hub of the Day, and is highlighted on HPs main page and on your login screen.

    I'm at 700,000+ total views. I hope to hit the 3/4 of a million mark very soon (crossing fingers) and then onwards to the million smile It's taken 3 years though lol.

      sparkleyfingerposted 2 years ago in reply to this

      You must be making megabucks! Is writing for HP your main livelihood ? Sorry if I am too intrusive. I am just curious being a new hubber.

      1. ChristinS profile image92

        lol, no - HP is just a bit of residual income for me.  My primary money comes from my own websites and from doing freelance writing for clients smile

    I aim to reach 100 subscribers too at some point, though how long is anyone's guess at the minute, as I'm quite far off that target. Congrats to you though!
    My current goal is to hit 100,000 views as I am a little obsessed with my views here on HubPages. smile smile smile

    1. sparkleyfinger profile image90
      sparkleyfingerposted 2 years ago in reply to this

      Good luck! I, too, get a little obsessed on my page views, but have found them in decline over the summer. Hopefully they pick up over winter again.

    Yep, 100 hubs goal + 100,000 for me.

    The 100,000 is going to happen in the next 5 weeks, I can feel it in my bones. The 100 hubs will happen as long as I don't get writer's block and have to go away for a rest!

    Consider it 5 more now, really like some of the topics you seem to write about (money, recipes), keep up the great Hubs!

      Thanks!!! I logged on today to see I have met my milestone! So excited! I do love a good bargain, as well as cooking, so that is generally what my hubs are about.

      I do have a bit of a mixture though, some beauty hubs are in there for good measure, as well as some odds and ends. I hope to move forward with some more arty/ crafty hubs- just bought a house, so will be up-cycling a LOT!! I will post my thrifty results!

    Congrats!

    I am hoping people will recognize me here.  The change of name made me a little nervous.  Hopefully when all my lenses arrive, people will recognize me.  (btw..... I'm KAB! )

    I also, hope to get a Hub of the Day at some point.  That would be nice!

    1. sparkleyfinger profile image90
      sparkleyfingerposted 2 years ago in reply to this

      Everyone wants HOTD!! It gets a lot of traffic to a particular hub, which then prompts more followers and more traffic to other hubs!!! Fingers crossed everyone! I'm sure your change of name won't have much of an impact- people follow for your content, so if its all transferring over, you'll be back on track in no time at all! Good luck!

    Nice to see so many milestones achieved. This is a very encouraging thread. Let me ad my latest 2 milestones:

    1. Reached one million views last week and...
    2. Reaching payout threshold during first week of the month for the second month running.

    Next goals:
    Writing more hubs,
    reaching 2 million views and
    continuing to make 3 figure monthly payouts (dreaming of 4!) :-).

    1. Solaras profile image91
      Solarasposted 2 years ago in reply to this

      Awesome - congrats on the 1 million milestone!

      I am coming up on 200,000 views in a few days, which is not a legitimate milestone, but it should be. :-) So my next goal is 50 featured hubs.

      1. sparkleyfinger profile image90
        sparkleyfingerposted 2 years ago in reply to this

        Any hundred thousand views is a milestone, well done! 50 featured hubs is also a good goal! Good luck!

      sparkleyfingerposted 2 years ago in reply to this

      Congratulations on 1m views, that's impressive, I'm hoping to match that over the coming months! And 3 figure monthly payouts would be nice! I'll roll up my sleeves, and hope for the best!

    My milestone right now is to publish 40 Hubs by the end of the year. I'm currently polishing up some of my old hubs to improve traffic and update any info that needs it.

    My other goal is to reach 60,000 views by the end of the year. I'm not sure if it's possible, but that's what I'm hoping/working for! smile

    1. sparkleyfinger profile image90
      sparkleyfingerposted 2 years ago in reply to this

      Awesome!!! I am going to polish up some of my hubs, and I think I will actually unpublish some of the ones that just don't generate any views... we all have them sad

      How many views are you at atm??

      Good luck!!!

      1. Cardia profile image88
        Cardiaposted 2 years ago in reply to this

        I'm currently at 53,600+ views right now, so 6000+ more to go! smile
        I've been meaning to spruce up some of my older hubs for a while now, but never got around to it until now.

      sparkleyfingerposted 2 years ago in reply to this

      Any successes? New goals?? I have a new goal to reach 500 comments on my hubs- I think this one is much closer than the 100,000 views, although that should happen over the next few months, fingers crossed!!!

  17. Availiasvision profile image90
    Availiasvisionposted 2 years ago

    I go do my part to help you out.  500 is totally doable, but it will take awhile, or tons of followers.  Billybuc has about 2000 followers and gets around 100 comments per hub.  Good luck!

    My current goals are modest as I'm pretty new here. I'd like to reach 1,000 page views (Small, I know!) and get to 40 hubs -- I'm at 33 right now.

    1. sparkleyfinger profile image90
      sparkleyfingerposted 2 years ago in reply to this

      Hi Teeuwynn, your modest goals were very similar to my own when I began. I actually started by doing the 30 hubs in 30 days challenge, but I have now found spending a few days at a time on a hub gets my best content.

      I remember how happy I was when I reached 1000 views, then 10,000! Every little bit helps! With 33 hubs, I'm sure you will be getting those views soon!! Good luck!

    I've done 6 hubs on here, and I'm really proud of myself. If I do 4 more I can finally apply for the Ad sense program with Hubpages. I'm very happy about my work and I'm not stopping anytime soon.
