    I have been writing hubs at Hubpages for two years now.  I notice since I commenced creating a hub a day on the thirty day hubchallenge that my visitor numbers have increased 100%.

    What is the experience of all you other wonderful hubchallengers ?

      Top stuff!

      It certainly is good to see a marked increase. Hopefully you'll also start to see an increase in earnings.

      My experience is awesome. Before the challenge, my traffic was nothing to write home about. Then i publish the first few hubs and BOOM!, my traffic almost triples, and earnings? Everyday! I recommend the challenge for everyone who wants to increase traffic and/or earnings.
      This is my testimony. smile

    Once I read on forum a piece of advice to include as much as possible links to your hub. After that I added more tags and my traffic increased, but not greatly.

    Barry, that is awesome!  I have noticed since writing more hubs for the challenage has helped me as well.  So good luck my friend.

    Just out of interest what is considered to be a good or high number of visitors ? 10 a day 100 a day or 100 a day ? Are there any stats. anywhere about how many visitors hubs get ?

    I also am seeing an increase in my traffic, but I want to know whats the logic/science behind it? How does it boost your traffic. How?

    Others know far more than me but in my opinion google etc see to LIKE slow steady drip feed of hubs.  At least, that seems to work in my case.

      Yep, as you continue to build up your portfolio of Hubs, your authority on Google continues to build as well, meaning that each new Hub you publish will have a better and better chance to rank well.

      It's like a big snowball rolling down a hill, gaining momentum and growing bigger as it continues down...except instead of more snow, you're gaining more traffic (and earnings). smile

        Sorry to be thick, could you explain a bit more?

        Does google's search engine know that Hubber A (100 hubs, all doing wonderfully) wrote a new hub, rather than Hubber B (entirely new to the site) and prefer Hubber A's offerings, all other things being equal? Aren't they all just pages on the same website, namely hubpages?

          This is what occurred to me after reading his reply, but didn't really want to ask for some unknown reason.
          Good to see that you have asked it. smile

          I'm not the best on this but yes, if Hubber A's hubs are linked to each other and have good backlinks from other sites, andare on a topic that relates to the new page - yes I think it does know it and prefer it.  My NEW pages certainly do much better now than they did at first with off-hubpages traffic.

            Remember that profile pages carries weight too. I imagine older hubbers who have a lot of fans (and thus backlinks to their profile page), and who have posted quite a bit in the forum (which again produces backlinks to your profile) have very strong profile pages. Some profile pages have pagerank in their own right. And given that your new hubs are listed on your profile page, hey presto, they get a boost.

              A good answer to ponder over. So the profile page's importance should not be under-estimated. Set up a good profile page.It helps a lot.

                Well, having read this, I'm royally screwed. I have a really silly picture and an even worse name. I can't change my name but I can put a different picture up. Maybe I should.

    Writing good content on a semi regular basis will increase your hubscore and therefore increase your ranking in google. Write a minimum of 10 worth while reading hubs and it should keep increasing. It seems to be all about Hubitivity. smile
