I just recently signed up for hubpages and have written 3 hubs. I have tried quite a bit to get the word out thru other avenues than hubpages. For the more experienced hubbers what range of response would you consider you hub to be sucessful. I don't really have anything to compare it to. Just trying to maximize my distribution..thanks in advance
In the early days, you will get very little traffic, no matter what you do. It can take time for the search engines to notice your Hubs - and when they do, they can drop them just as quickly. It takes a while for them to find their place. Unless you're very savvy about SEO etc, the average Hubber makes next to nothing for the first few months. Once the money starts trickling in, though, it improves every week.
If you participate in the forums and comment on other people's Hubs, you'll get more visits from other Hubbers, but that's not paying traffic.
The best way to determine success on HubPages is for you to set your own goals, and then best them.
Each writer has different levels of experience, writing skills, and purpose for being here, so there's no benchmark guidelines for what is successful.
Another good way to start is by providing good quality and relevant content, relying on search engines to find you. If you use analytics, you will see what is bringing visitors to your site. I recommend choosing sub topics for your best performing hub and interlink them. Good luck!
Here's a link to analytics:
Thanks, I did sign up for google analytics but they produced an html code and I am not quite sure where I should be inserting that into my page..doesn't seem to really be a place for it.
Follow the instructions here:
Nice posts from what I have read. I got google analytics just a while ago too. Does this mean you have to paste the code in all of your individual hubs? This is a WYSIWYG kind of thing in our dashboard right?.. and the only thing to insert the code is through the view source. Anyone who tried it? Kindly share. thanks
"Success is a journey , not a destination" , I heard that in Toast Masters , I'm sure someone famous said that
To me success is keep improving yourself , and what realche said is a good way to measure it , set goals , achieve them and improve upon your goal

I'd like to start using Analytics for my hubs, however I'm a bit confused about what to put down when it asks for your URL. Am I supposed to put in the URL of every hub I want tracked or do I put in one main URL, like...
