    Hi hubbers, I'm new and was wondering how many hub visits should anyone be expecting everyday?? I've been here for a about 4 weeks and I have 12 hubs now.

      I will come visit smile takes time and apparently people come when they get to know you a bit better ,or a title catches their eye.

      Of course I learned all this the hard way lol sigh, but awsydney youre on the right track IMO, its the outside traffic thats likely to click on adverts though.

      You will get there.!

        Hey EagleKiwi, nice to see you, again!! I thought outside traffic cannot view anything in hubpages unless they sign up? Do you mean the general public / man on the street can view our hubs too?? I'm confused now! lol..

          Yes. The general public can see your hubs. In fact, if you're here to make money, that's what you want! Hubscores, Author scores and HP traffic is nice, but they're not gonna make you any money.

    Since everyone writes about different things, and promotes their hubs differently, there's no average or set number of visits that you can expect in a day.

    Suffice to say, you can get anywhere between zero and thousands.

        I checked out a couple of your hubs.  They look really good in my opinion, because:

        1) You have good, rich content and sufficient content (at least over 500 words from the looks of it).

        2) Original photos

        I think you'll do just fine.  I fanned you by the way smile

        Your performance: 126/12 = 10.5 pageview per hub

        Mine: 242/27 = 8.9 pageviews per hub

        Your doing better than me.

        relacheposted 7 years ago in reply to this

        What are your criteria or definitions for determining good, bad and pathetic? 

        If you got only that amount of pageviews, but it was highly-targeted traffic and your site visitors clicked on ads, that might be more successful than someone with many more pageviews but who drew visitors who just glanced at the page and left.

        And just because I know this is what you're really asking... The top performing Hubs on this site get a LOT more daily visits than that.

        You won't be able to quit your day job any time soon. But if you're patient and you want to put in a time and effort to produce quality content, you'll set yourself up for the long term.

    I average about 70-100 views a day : (. However, I figure this number will increase in good time. From what I have read, it is clear to me that it takes a while for a new hubber's traffic to increase significantly.

    Yep think of the forum and hubpages comments as 'inhouse critique', but the people you eventually want are the lil darlings outside of here , to read and love it so much ,they connect with your article ,ooops hub and click on either a Goggle advert or a Hubpages advert, then ker ching ,the pennies start happenining, but it takes several hubs ,quality content , not copied that will bring the traffic ,thats why I said it takes time , slow at first ,but while ya waiting ya might as well read up and learn smile

    There have been so many hubs written on helping you get your 'hubs to make money' the latest I saw today was this one.

    For new hubbers , and old hubbers, like me who suffer from oldtimers lol

    Also dont forget that search button up there ,top of this page!

        Just click on the down arrow.  You can choose to search FORUMS, HUBBERS, HUBS, SITE, and more wherever you are on Hubpages.

        I personally like to see where I'm ranked among other hubbers, check on the best and latest hubs.  I like to keep on top of the goings on here at Hubpages.  Yu can get a general idea of what people are interested in, but remember, all of these things change, moment by moment.  Just right what interests you now, and you'll be okay!

    Or not. I'm happy to be an active member of the HP community, but it doesn't show me the money. I'm happy when I hit a milestone, but again -- no money from it.

    This community is filled with so many special and awesome people that it's worth it personally to get involved. But again, no money.

    You need to do your research to find out what "outsiders" are looking for, what advertisers are paying, and what people will read to show you the money.

      awsydneyposted 7 years ago in reply to this

      ok, thanks for the advice Dohn and Irohner. So why dont people then write about stuff that people want to read and make the money?? I understand the title of the hub is very important and we should do a Keyword search on Google before deciding on titles etc etc. Then again, I'm not sure how to interpret the CPC (cost per click) and what it all means. I know the advertiser will pay the CPC but how as a publisher do we decide on what words to use in the title based on that search. If CPC is high say $8.00, and search volume is high, does that mean we should use those key words?? signed...Technosaurus AWsydney.

    Kiwi, you are too much!  smile Thank you, sweetie pie.

    AWSydney -- Yes. You want to go after keywords with a high(er) CPC, since those will payout better to you. I usually won't go after anything with CPC of less than $1.00. (Unless I'm writing a hub designed to push Amazon products. Then I don't worry so much about the CPC for the Google ads.)

    Yes. You want keywords with high traffic volume (although "high" is a relative term). BUT, you also want them to have lower competition. So you might find a keyword with a gazillion hits a month with a $25.00 CPC, but if you're going to have to battle a couple of hundred thousand targeted websites with PR7 and up, you may never make it to the top of the search engines with just one little hub. An entire website or blog maybe, but probably not with one hub. And if you're not at the top of the search engines, you won't get much traffic.

    So it's really a balancing act of finding high CPC, higher traffic and lower competition. Hope this helps.

      Good day Irohner how will I know that I will get a keywords that has high CPC, and are these keywords are your URL or tags, just asking, Hope you'll provide me answers.

      1. lrohner profile image86
        lrohnerposted 7 years ago in reply to this

        Hey there General! Haven't seen much of you around here lately!

        You can use Google's keyword tool (just Google it to get the link). Plug in your keyword(s), enter the captcha and you'll see some results. Now in the upper right you'll see a dropdown box labeled "Choose columns to display". From that dropdown, choose "Show estimated avg CPC".

        You'll see a new column pop up that tells you what advertisers are paying to advertise with those keywords. The more they pay, the more you make.

        So I look at the first three columns - How highly is the keyword paid? How much search volume is there for the keyword? How much competition is there for that keyword.

        I narrow my list down and then head on over to SEOBook's keyword tool to make my final decision. You may have a few keywords for one hub, but just make sure your main keyword is in your tags, in your title and in your URL. A sprinkling of it throughout your article, particularly in capsule titles, will also help.

        Hope this clears it up a bit!

          Hi Irohner

          ok, I understand your last post about using Google keywords. I thought the keyword is only important in the URL and not the title or subtitles? Eaglekiwi also advised me to try and put the keyword in the narrative of my photos. How does that help if people are only browsing the slideshow with the keyword but not clicking on the ads? Can you send me the link for the SEO keyword tool please?

    2. awsydney profile image59
      awsydneyposted 7 years ago in reply to this

      ok, it clarified things somewhat. So I should go for relatively high CPC of say more than $1 but with not so much volume. Where I'm confused is who pays who? If my hubpage is listed on Google (which I dont pay for), who pays me if someone clicks on my hubpage? If Google pays me, where do they get this money from since I didnt pay to get my page listed?
