My amazing milestone - 1 Million Pageviews!

    Holy Moly, I just saw my milestone posted on Hubtivity. 1,000,000 pageviews. I feel like it really wasn't that long ago that it was 10,000 pageviews, but I've been a member of Hubpages for over 2 years now and it is has become a big part of of my life and a significant contributor to my income.

    I just wanted to take the time to thank everyone here -- both the Hubpages founders and staff who put together such an amazing site and who are constantly tinkering with it to improve performance and maintain rigorous content standards. And also thanks to all the folks who hang out in the forums and provide great tips on getting the most out of Hubpages.

    I feel lucky to have found this place. For those of you who are new... please consider my milestone an achievable goal for yourselves. Getting traffic does take time, but if you stick with it and produce great content that people are searching for, you will do well here. It just requires a bit of patience.

    My top traffic getting tip -- CAPITALIZE ON YOUR BEST PERFORMING TOPICS! If you write a hub about a particular topic and it performs well, write about that topic some more. Find related topics to write about and interlink everything together. They will feed each other traffic.

      This is a great statement. I've definitely used this technique, and I'll admit it definitely works.

      Congrats on the million views.

      Well let me say congrats for making it to 1,000,000 views. I hope you continue to have success in life and on HubPages. Hopefully I will get there.
      Also thanks for the piece of advice about finding a topic that has a buzz and capitilizing on it with other hubs and linking them together. ;-)

    Amazing!  I just got 100,000; I feel so dwarfed in comparison...  But I know I can make it to a million... one day... far in the future, haha.  Congratulations!

    Congratulations, that is a milestone indeed. Thank you for your thoughtful suggestions, I guess that's why you got a million hits! Such a nice gesture.

    Thanks, Whitney. You are one of my role models for hubbing! Sticking to well performing topics definitely pays off.

    Thank you, Lucey and Earnest!

    Helena, 100K is a great start. Just write more hubs and you will get there too! Take a look at your hubs that are getting you the most traffic and expand on those topics and 1M will be here before you know it smile

    Just got an email from Hubpages and here I am checking you out.
    That is amazing but what does it all mean?

    Does it mean you're famous? I don't know, just wondering what the big thing is when someones page gets a million clicks or views. Did you make a lot of money on the way?

    Well, anyway, well done. Keep up the great work you're doing!

    Hey Embitca,

    I think that it's so wonderful that you've reached such great milestone.  It's a great example for everyone.  It definitely helps to motivate me!  Have a great day Embitica, I suppose we'll see you at the two million mark!

    You know what I just thought of?  You probably have the Hubpages graphics designers scrambling to come up with new metal designs! LOL.

    Wow, I believe I'm your newest fan.  I just joined 8 days ago, currently have 220 total pageviews, and I'm slightly overwhelmed!  My highest viewed page is about cochlear implant, surprisingly.  Well, maybe not so surprisingly.  Here you are with a million pageviews in 2 years.  What a nice post this is; it's incredibly inspirational and helpful.  Thanks for the tips.

    Congratulations. smile
