    I finally hit 250,000 views today.  It took a long time coming but here is to the next 250,000.

      Congratulations miss sallybea. It is nice to see you happy with all those numbers going up. You have many nice hubs. It is good to show it to other sites. I am happy for you.

        I am super impressed with your views over such a short period. You have relatively few hubs but you write in a niche where I doubt you will ever run out of views.  Very well done.

      That's great Sally. I know how hard you work at this, and it appears you're finally getting some payback. Good job!

        Thanks, TIMETRAVELER2, that means a lot.   I would add that this was made possible with a huge increase in views from Flipboard this month.  Traffic has settled back to previous levels but I do intend doing some work on Flipboard to help promote mine and others work in my niche subject.

      Congratulations. I think that your craft tutorials could really take off if they escaped HubPages main site and its Google penalties.

        Thanks, Kylyssa.   My hubs are gradually being moved across to the niche sites and thus far, appear to be doing quite well.

          Sallybea, how do you get your hubs moved to niche sites? Is that something the hubber does, or does HubPages do it?  In other words, how do I get my articles to niche sites?

          1. sallybea profile image97
            sallybeaposted 4 months ago in reply to this

            No,you can't move them yourself. it will be done by staff.

      Why are there more pageviews shown on Google Analytics than on our HubPages dashboard?

      This is so amazing! You can't hide great writing!  Did the boost in traffic increase your income substantially?

      1. sallybea profile image97
        sallybeaposted 4 months ago in reply to this

        No, actually it did not as CPM's have been pretty low of late but think it has picked up a little recently.  Thanks for the compliment, though.

      It's good to get a return for working hard on this site. Perhaps you should 'felt' it, though 250,000 is a bit long.

      1. sallybea profile image97

        Don't you worry Will, I have 'felt it' the whole way, what with all that rubbing and rolling!  Whew!

        You'll see how if you look at her body of work. She creates interesting craft projects, writes excellent instructions for replicating them, and uses her own photos of her professional-looking crafts. Originality is vital to doing well with crafts writing.

          I might add that Kylyssa herself, gives some great advice and writes some excellent hubs.

      It might have been one of the least favorite niche names here but in my eyes, they could not have done better:)

    Congratulations on reaching your first quarter million Sally - I am so pleased for you, and I hope it gives you the encouragement to head on to the next quarter, and then the next and then the next. Four quarters makes a whole million, and I hope one day you will achieve that. You will deserve it. Alun

    I just noticed this thread. Congratulations to you, Sally, for a great accomplishment. And the same to all the others who posted about reaching special thresholds. I recognize a number of you from the forum where we were discussing Flipboard and I think it's great that we found something that has the possible potential to bring significantly more traffic.

      Thanks, Glenn it was so slow coming and then came Flipboard! 
      My goodness that injection has surpassed all my expectations.  I can't believe the increase in traffic.  Long may it last!
