I have hubs, two, three, four, and five years old, and instead of giving me the search data, they say " Still Collecting Data" This is even on featured hubs. When will the data collecting be completed?
Well that's not the case. I get a lot of traffic to them,. and to all of my hubs really
FYI-Not all high traffic hubs have search terms/data....because people can come to your hub without searching for your subject matter. They can come through links on other sites. or by searching through Hubpages without typing in search words, etc.All you would have in cases like this is "traffic sources", but no search terms/data
When a hub isn't getting much traffic, it can't be featured due to lack of "Engagement", But my hubs are featured..so..
I'd say what is happening is that the ones with 10,000 hits are getting most of their visits from just a few search terms, whereas the ones with 28,000 hits are getting a few visits each from many search terms. Search terms won't appear on the report unless they are being used a lot.
I think you answered your own question. If the majority of your traffic comes from other sources - social networking sources, etc. - and there is limited search traffic, then you are unlikely to have enough data for the system to come up with search terms.
If you have less than 10,000 visits to a Hub per day, it's extremely low volume in the overall greater scheme of web traffic. Most people I know who run "successful" small websites get over 500,000 unique visits or more per month.
And just because HubPages can detect the visitor doesn't mean they got any other meaningful info about the visit.
I just read what you wrote again My hub isn't a website, and yes my hub is getting less than 10,000 hits a day, way less, as I am sure some of yours are too. please...
I only have Amazon, and I don't have ads on all of my hubs I write the hubs because I feel I have something worth saying, not to make money, so less then 500 hits a day is fine with me. I just wanted to know when my hubs (4) of them will stop collecting data.
It just means those Hubs are not getting enough search engine traffic on consistent keywords. As MT says, that could be because many people are reaching your Hub through personal recommendations, word of mouth or sites like Facebook rather than Google. Or it could mean that your Hub is being found in a wide variety of searches, rather than coming up consistently for certain keywords.
I noted that 95% of my traffic is from other hubbers and only a few hits from oogle, yahoo, etc. in a post when I first started. I was told that would change in time because "google would find me." ...
Just checked it on Alexa.com, and realized which (alleged) effect the Panda updates of Google has on traffic. Although I'm still happy with the traffic my Hubs have, are the foundations increasingly eroding. Are there...
Well, I would have made it sooner if it hadn't been for stupid Panda. But after a year, I finally got to the place where I've achieved payout in one month! Now if I could actually get a payout every month from...
