When someone posts a hub like "How to be succesful on Hubpages" I look at their total page views accolade to see if they really are succesful. If that person has hundreds of hubs but only 1000 page views accolade, well....
If that hubber has an accolade for 100,000, he may have 900,000 page views and none of us have a way of knowing this. There is a long way from 100,000 to 1 million. There is a big difference in 10,000 and 100,000, and even an even bigger difference in 1 million and 10 million. I do not think any hubbers have reached 100,000 yet, but maybe someone has made it halfway.
I would really like to see accolades for 50,000, 500,000, 5,000,000, and yes, maybe even for 50,000,000.
Is this possible?
Hi Dr Mark,
The time someone reaches 50,000,000, he/she would have retired. Its pretty much long way to go. I don't think anyone would have reached that level. Possibility, it depends on the topic & traffic he/she will receive for the hub.
The highest one that I am aware of is Patty Inglish with over 10M.
Thomas Beyers (Crazyhorsesghost) has had more than 10 million views. He has an accolade for it. 100,000 isn't that many. I've had over 470,000.
I agree Mark1961. I have a different consideration. I have deleted over 100 hubs. Those views do not appear at the 'Ever View' at the Account Page. My profile shows 11 today. My accolade is 10k. At the account page my Ever Views today are not anywhere near that. Plus, my accolade for Published Hubs is 100 & Simultaneously Featured Hubs is 50. However, I do feel I earned those.
I know having done spreadsheets with inventory and vehicle history that there is a key entry. For instance the product item. When that is deleted 'all' the history is too. So, we only deleted inventory items at year end when we could create an annual report for all inventory to use with 'indirect' reports and not live reports from the mainframe. Does that occur with the Hub View Accolade too. The key element would be the Hub Title I would think?
So, is there a 'patch' to compensate when a hub is deleted or is there some kind of cumulative view with the hubber name as the key entry? I have no way to calculate all my views. I do not know if I am at 10,001 or 99,999.
Yes, compared to those with over 100k or 1M I may not be thought of as successful with HubPages. One must determine what success is first and that is individualistic. Possibly I am less successful with Google.
We have no plans to add any accolades at this time, but you can see the full current list of accolades here.
I'd like for us to see accolades at 250K, 500K, 750K and at each million view mark. The most active thread the last few days was about how discouraged many Hubbers feel. Adding these accolades might help fuel people to write more hubs.
I was looking forward to reaching the 500,000 view mark, but the stats froze up for several days, and once they got going again I had passed the goal, and I was very underwhelmed and somewhat discouraged.
I never think to look at my statistics...guess they don't mean much to me; neither do the accolade icons. I just enjoy the writing and exchanges with you and the other folks who write or visit my hubs. I did take note once though, when in the span of a week one hub (on the early autumn lady bug swarming phenomenon) generated over [earnings disclosure redacted] Like veterinarians, I'm not in it for the money...and that's probably a real good thing in my case!
I enjoy reading other hubs and also enjoy my (earnings disclosure redacted) Bob, since it does pay my internet and feed bills every month. I check my stats almost every time I log in since I want to see if my hubs are reaching people--unfortunately many of my more popular hubs are about selecting a dog or dog names; what does that tell you about me as a vet?
Maybe I need to write more about the health issues of lady bugs?
The 100,000 is quite within reach. I've been here less than a year and made it to the 100,000 accolade. I wasn't starting from scratch though, as my large collection of articles transferred over from Squidoo. The visitor count is just for the time here on Hubpages.

I think I've lost one accolade. Does Admin remove the accolade if you are no longer actively engaged in that category?

Presently, the subject accolade is set up to reflect when a hubber reaches 1000, 10,000, 100,000, 1,000,000, 10,000,000 and 100,000,000 views. I believe that it should be revised to where it would reflect 1000, 10,000,...

It was a lot harder than I thought it ever would be getting to 10 million views. I also have a couple of Hubs approaching a million plus views each and I've now started to really take advantage of Pinterest. And I plan...

This hubber has 10 million views and just 15 hubs. He or she doesn't even bother explainining who /he she/ is on profile page. Writes about stuff like iphones. Are we all missing a trick. Do you think this person could...

Is there a 10k views accolade? I thought so. I have been patient, but now I have had a glass of wine, and the toys are coming out the pram. I want my pretty badge! I need that kind of self-congratulation. Noone in the...

I reached 1000 views a couple of days ago but yet to receive my accolade. I was wondering if the accolade for 1000 views has been discontinued.
