urrrrr...i fear i'm way behind my counter parts but i have very few backlinks. Congratulations Relache! I do notice however that each "week" the views do increase exponentialy which says to me, my hubs are being found more often.
I've had 503 but the numbers are rising week by week now that I do a little backlinking. I'm still not sure on all this backlinking stuff. Doesn't there come a time when it's counted as spamming and then google cuts you back or something because of it? I'm still learning...
I think that's when you have multiple links to the same page on one page
like if you wrote a hub comparing apples to oranges and then wrote a hub on oranges, and EVERYWHERE you alluded to oranges in you apples and oranges hub, you linked to the oranges-only hub...that would be considered spamming
Salt - didn't realise you were another Aussie. Just had a peak at some of your Hubs - I think you could do a lot better if you did some editing work!
I've posted a link to Darkside's Capsules Hub in a few places, I recommend you read it. You've got the idea of mixing them up, but there's a difference between combining them neatly, and chucking them all in together like a dog's breakfast!
For instance, if you're going to have a photo or ad on the right hand side, make sure the text on the left matches it in length, or is longer.
You include a lot of revenue capsules but some of the products featured don't seem to have much to do with the subject. That won't make you any sales - Amazon and eBay only work if you can find products that are directly relevant to your subject. Irrelevant ads will just lose your readers' interest and they're less likely to scroll through the ads to read the next bit.
Finally, Google will pay your Hubs more attention if they're longer - over on another thread, Nelle Hoxie (who as you know is going gangbusters) is aiming for over 1,000 words these days.
582 for the last 7 days, but my traffic is down as well.
It has sprung back somewhat from the Dec. slump, but is still off about 30% from what it was before, and that was with 26 hubs. I have done 9 more during the last 7 days for the 30 day challenge. I expect things to take off soon.
My traffic is low this week considering that I have more hubs pre-Christmas season. I have less than 2,000 now on a 7-day period. Surprisingly, my New Year and Christmas hubs are still getting traffic .
Why does there have to be this constant comparison about who is doing better than who. I for one don't like it because it is very upsetting to see this from you who have been in for some time longer than the rest of us. We know that you are doing well why do you have to rub it in our faces as well!!!!!!! I think it is grossly unfair BB
I find it inspiring too, and I feel better knowing that those who have been here approx the same length of time that I have, have similar figures. That means I am doing something right! (Either that, or we've ALL got it wrong!)
Man I suck! I only have 82. But, I recently discovered that I am starting to get search engine hits. So maybe that will change. I'm still not feeling the greatest. But, I am determined to start getting some revenue from this.
I see that my music reviews are what is getting me the most traffic. So I will probably stick with that. Going to try to start my own facebook group. maybe that will generate something.
I also agree that seeing people with over 10,000 hits in their hubs is a bit depressing. It still gives me hope that I might be there some day. What is that equal to about $500.00 a month in adsense?
Yes I do find it very inspiring I am not denying that at all. I just feel that if you are not doing as well as the others it is hard to seem everyone who is, it can be depressing and inspiring as well. Put yourself there, see what I mean. If I wasn't inspired by the comments I got when I posted my problem about my poems, I would not be hear. But, it was just hard seeing that posted straight after I had just started to feel I had a chance again. This is just my opinion obviously a lot of you don't agree. I am going through a depressive patch due to my illness, this isn't helping either Unfortunately, I don't have any control over this even though I do my best too try and handle it. BB
(((beautybabe)) Big hugs, sweetheart. I saw your other thread and didn't comment because I felt those that did said I'd all I'd say. only I didn't see anyone saying that your poems sound like poems should be IMO, with rhythm and rhyme. I have no idea whether or not poetry is popular on the WWW. It's not my field of expertise. BUT, and this is the thing that is important, I liked not only your poems but YOU. How you come across, how you integrate, how you write. So you go Babe! Keep writing!
BeautyBabe I think you are feeling something we all hit at some point.
The views/reads can be sometimes linked to 'seasonal fluctuations' or topical trends. I tend to look at the stats. on hubs to see if I am getting traffic from other places and if they are going up or down but have now realised that I will carry on writing anyway, I too almost gave up at one point.
I tend to think of my hubs as creative writing or 'factual' the later are affected by what is happening on the search engines currently. The 'creatives' whatever reads I get on them I tell myself it is more than I got before I started to write hubs. I think it helped once I understood that if I did not get reads it was not personal - maybe it was that I needed to pick a different category or title or I had written something that it was difficult to leave a comment on. I think that the more hubs you have the more reads flow from one to another.
If you look at the bounce rate on hubs not every view leads to a page read and the figures I believe also include our visits to our own hubs... so the figures can be misleading. People do like you BeautyBabe, so please do not despair about numbers with my regards 2uesday.
I do not pay attention much anymore.. either you like my writings ( which I do need to get my pc fixed, I have a ton jotted down as crib notes from when I was hospitalized earlier this month )...maybe then , when I get back to speed i will start paying more attention again?
Spending less time writing and posting these days. Even cancelled Keyword academy subscription because I'm just not ready to invest in the assignments. Call it inertia, or just not ready to spend more $$$ on sites.
But the ideas are good, but you have to spend money to make money. And I will make the move, just not yet.
Does anyone know the magic formula to increasing page views. Here is what I am looking at for averages over all of my accounts and hubs. Monthly Views: 17 Per HubAd Program Earnings Per Page view: .005 (half...
I joined HubPages just over a week ago, and I have achieved over 200 views. Keeping in mind I have no SEO knowledge whatsoever, and hardly know about keywords, I think this is pretty good, but i may be wrong...Can...
Hi Everyone,So I'm over here from Triond, checking out the competition and seeing if there's anywhere better.In general I like Triond. Yes, it's an anarchic wasteland with editors who screw up more than they fix, little...
I now have 15 hubs. I am hitting 300 pageviews per day. 1 of my hubs on FIFA World Cup 2010 is contributing to 70% of the traffic. There rest of it with 13 hubs hitting 3 to 10 pageviews per day and 1 hub with 0 views...
