Happy Sunday everyone. Without stating the title, what is your top article that gets the most views consistently within a 7-day period and how many views on average? (Informational, Creative, Recipe). I ask because it helps us to know what kinds of articles we should focus on creating and getting to niche sites. Mine is as follows: Type: Informational Average views in 7 days: 1,000
My #1 performer is an ethnic recipe that I developed myself with some help from a friend. 1884 views in the past 7 days.
My #2 performer used to be #1 until it was stolen by several other sites. It's a psychology issue based article that received only 1,081 views the past 7 days, but before it was stolen it was nothing to receive nearly 3,000 views in a 7-day period. The thief just copied and pasted it with their own name on it. Reporting it to Google made little difference. They made one site take it down, but then decided they didn't have the energy to ask the others to do the same, I guess because there were so many, so it remains stolen and my views on that article remain blighted.
Google cannot ask the sites to take it down. Only you, as the copyright owner, can make that request under the DMCA. The best Google can do is remove the link from the SERPs. You have to send a DMCA takedown request to the host service of each site. Complete information on how to do that is in the learning center.
That's pretty normal for that Hub. It's not on this account. I have an informational Hub on this account that brought in about 1300 views in the past 7 days, pretty normal for that Hub as well.
To unfortunately be vague, Hubs that answer a question that almost anyone (or, at least, a lot of people even from a specific group) at any time may ask get a lot of views over a long period of time. Although I've had Hubs that get pretty good consistent traffic that were not like that.
All of my top hubs are informational, "how to" articles - I have to go down 12 hubs to find one that is not a "how to" hub, and even it is still very much informational. The best produce 3,000-4,000 views per week. Interestingly the top 10, out of 166, produce just about half the total views each week.
My top two hubs are informational but seasonal. One gets 3200 views per week for about 4 months in the summer, the other 2600 per week. My third non-seasonal, most viewed hub, currently receives 2300 views per week, with a constant upwards trend in views which don't seem to be plateauing (touch wood!).
Title: 40 Natural Ways To Induce Labor Niche: Listicle/Informational 7 day views: 10,000 All time views: 3.5 million
Paul Edmondson is very right about listicles doing well in search. Nearly all my top viewed articles (on this account, my other HP accounts and my own site) are listicles. Works great in search as well as on made for pinterest images.
Mine is informational, Pethelpful Weekly - 8000 views Lifetime 380,000 It's been out there since 2013 and has grown steadily over time. It's probably the 4th hub I wrote. Being in the pet category, these hubs get their peak views on the weekend, weekdays they tend to suffer.
As a list, whenever I thought of something good to add, I would add it and then, when it reached the next nice sounding number, like 20 or 60 I would update the numbers on the title. Hub pro did some editing and new images, but other than that I have probably touched 5-6 times in 3 years. If it ain't broke, don't fix it (too much) lol
My 2 poetry hubs get the most views consistently. Average in the past 7 days: 60 for each . But, my one with Mothers day poems does better overall with 5,000 views in the last 60 days. The other poetry one had 1600 in the past 60 days.
CORRECTION: I'm sorry, I misread the stats.--That 5,000 figure was "ever" And the other one too--but it's actually closer to 2,000 ever for the other poetry hub. The other figures were wrong too--instead of 7 days it should be 60 days. One got 10 in the last 7 days. Sorry for the confusion--I just know those 2 poetry hubs are always my highest, with the one with mom's day poems highest no matter what time of year, which was always a mystery to me.
My most popular post is informational for teens and surprised me. I had written a few in the romantic relationships category and they seemed to be doing very well. But this one post blew them out of the water with 95 during the 7 day period, and 35, 567 overall!
I had never realized this until you asked the question so thanks for asking!
My best hub is an informative list on pethelpful. None of my other hubs really compare to the traffic I get from this hub. However, oddly enough most of the traffic from this hub comes for Google and not pethelpful. This hub has always done very well for me on Google though, so I'm not surprised. I also don't really think in this case my hub being moved to the niche site bumped my numbers too much.
Daily views are just under 200, with a 7-day viewing averaging about 1,054 views. Total this hub has received 65,791 views in almost 5 years.
Anyone else see this?WOW!I just blogged about it over here: http://blog.hubpages.com/2009/02/one-ma … ub-views/. That's one serious medal...whoa. I've only got about 940,564 more views to go before I can have...
I feel concerned that the reason google may prefer ehow as opposed to hubpages, is because there is an abundance of poetry and short stories. I am not by any means saying that those who publish the short stories...
Almost without fail, when a hub of mine is moved to a niche site, the views increase. I suppose this makes sense; HP created the niche sites to escape from that "content-farm" label that Google had put them...
