I have 106 hubs published -- but of that number, I have ONE that gets at least 1/3 of all my total traffic, and now gets more than all of my other 105 hubs hits daily.
It is somewhat entertaining and humorous-- but not what I consider one of my MOST entertaining and humorous. I Have some ideas why it gets traffic--but I am not a SEO expert or great at choosing keywords.
My second best traffic is about how to write humor. If I Google the words "write" and "humor" -- it comes up second, a couple of steps above Dave Berry's article on the same subject-- which blows my brain, as he is my humor idol.
My best traffic one is an article about fitting for bra. But in my title I do point out that I have a big chest. I think that might be why it gets so many hits. LOL... I really don't think that many women everyday are trying to figure out their bra size. But it's a humorous hub, which no one gives me any sympathy on. Oh well... Plus I'm not ashamed to say that one of the keywords is Double D. LOL Actually when I look up what keywords brought people to it. You can tell its women in my same predicament. Well, with the exception of, I'm assuming a male, who typed, "pic of girls with big breasts." I'm sure he was sorely disappointed. But he must have been the one who clicked on the slideshow of my very dull photos. LOL
I just published a hub about a week ago, about making work for yourself and it is getting more hits alone than all of my hubs put together. I assume it's because it's a hub whose time has come. I need to do that again, although I probably won't be able to duplicate it ever. So I guess that would be called my super hub. I haven't Googled it yet, but I will. Good question.
I have two that are consistent in the page per views. One is about children's knock knock jokes and the other is on reducing cross contamination during food preparation. So far, the numbers increase daily.
I have one hub that has attracted most of my traffic for nearly a year. It concerns the gift of the "Tear Of Grief" sculpture from the Russian Academy of Arts and the people of the former Soviet Union that was erected on the edge of New York Harbor in 2005-06.
My top two hubs for pageviews are seasonal, both in the Fall. I'm hoping they'll do super well this upcoming Fall. I have about 4 others that run neck in neck behind those two that are consistent with their pageviews and they're my actual moneymakers.
If anyone wants to get more specific about their super-topics, I think that could be helpful to some people . My best one was about hair salon names, not something I would normally write about. I think I did it because I had written something similar once before for another publication-- and then the "hubmob challenge" came up on the subject of hair. I think all of those challenges were keyed to good keyword targets.
Hi Rochelle - the hub i get most traffic for is my "How to Describe Yourself" one. I got the idea for it from the ideabank - I thought I could write a good hub on it, then checked to see if it was a good phrase in google's keyword tool. It was getting plenty of searches and there was no competition. It is now getting about 500-600 views a day and it keeps going up even though it's number one for several search terms. I haven't done any backlinking to it.
This hub is what has made me concentrate on finding these no competition keyphrases (because I hate backlinking!). One of my other top traffic hubs is "How soon can you tell if you are pregnant" - a very long keyphrase, but again loads of searches and no competition.
Most of my hubs aren't in a very big niche--maybe 10,000 monthly searches across the broadest keyword--so none of them are doing that good. I mean, I have a few that are in the high hundreds. I have a trapezius exercise article that has something like 1700 views because it's ranked in the top 10 for my keyword. Other than that, I have two swine flu hubs that have 3,000 and 7,000 views each--they got those in the span of a few weeks, and then died out completely.
My highest viewed hub is about my experience of my hotmail being hacked, money extorted from a friend, and how regained control of the account and the steps I took to do it. It was a nightmare.
I'm not real savvy about all this seo stuff, although I read quite a bit about it and tried to do my best. But my excuse is that I spend most of my time writing music, not writing hubs. But I'm glad to have this outlet. It seems to be good for me.
I don't have one super hub as far as traffic goes but I do have one I feel should be a super hub. I have about 5 that alternate as my busiest hubs. I have 3 hubs seeing about 300 hits per day between them and on some days double that number. I don't think this is a huge number but the traffic is 85% from outside sources mostly Google and MSN so I guess it isn't bad.
I have a handful of hubs that produce most of my traffic, but its amazing how a hub can suddenly catch fire. The traffic to my hub on KV55 (a tomb in the Valley of the Kings) has increased tenfold over the course of today and I can only assume it is because of all the news articles on the causes of Tutankhamen's death in today's news.
My "super Hub" is on the Halo 3 ODST xbox 360 game. It's not about the game itself really. I was approached last year to write a Welsh song for the promo' video they were preparing for the games release. I couldn't believe what happened on youtube then. There was a huge response with people asking what the language was and all kinds of theories about the translation. So I wrote a Hub on it. That Hub gets around 600 views a month and accounts for almost 50% of my total views. Oddly enough my second best is also about a Welsh song, Sosban Fach,
My super hub is on Civil War Generals 2, an old sierra PC game that runs on windows 3.1 and windows 95. I wrote a review and how to patch the game to work it on windows xp. I also have a link to where you can download the patch, which is like the only place you can find the patch, which subsequently bumped up the non-ranking site up to first for civil war generals 2 patch. Go figure.
It's generating a third of my total hub views (3k of 9k views), it's more than double my next closest hub (Caesar 3) which is itself double it's next closest rival. Civil War Generals 2 was one of my first hubs. Also has most comments.
I actually reworked the hub so the patch info was up front and review later as that's what everyone wants.
Mine is on How To Build A Survival Cabin On A Shoestring Budget, a very early hub written something like 2 years ago. It is, to date anyway, the only one that frequently beats 100 views a day and very seldom drops below 50.
It was the SECOND best (behind a hub on How To Dig A Hand Dug Well) until a new friend, a medicine man named Red Elk from the state of Washington, began commenting there (on the Survival Cabin hub). His spelling is atrocious, he purely doesn't care, and neither do I--especially because the more he commented, the more views the Cabin hub got. After number of months of this, it passed up the Well hub and has been widening the gap ever since.
These are my figures (prefer it to the other options as it doesn't give away my best performing pages!):
# Hubs with 10,000+ hub views in the last month: 0 # Hubs with 1,000+ hub views in the last month: 6 # Hubs with 100+ hub views in the last month: 14 # Hubs with 10+ hub views in the last month: 19 # Hubs with 1+ hub views in the last month: 4
Note: This includes five hubs which have not yet even been up a month - and so I expect that there will be some change once these have had a whole month. It does however follow a similar pattern to that of Relache (and I am definitely not a guru) with only no 10,000+ views hubs and so if I can do it I am sure anyone can with the correct work. Also many of those nearer the bottom end (eg less than 100 views in the last month) are older hubs before I understood SEO etc!
# Hubs with 10,000+ hub views in the last month: 4 # Hubs with 1,000+ hub views in the last month: 20 # Hubs with 100+ hub views in the last month: 99 # Hubs with 10+ hub views in the last month: 78 # Hubs with 1+ hub views in the last month: 16
I have a few hubs with 0 views for the past 30 days. Blech.
If we are referring to our overall most views, It is a hub I wrote in fun- "The World of Woman's Panties" which has 8300+ views with 4400 slide show views. (1260 in last 30 days) I have another with over 4600 views (2160 in last 30 days) and one that has about 3000 which was published 2 weeks ago.
I have a Hub about the murder of a young French woman in Ireland - Who Murdered Sophie Toscan du Plantier - the amount of hits are in their hundreds each week - but at the moment I am writing a book chapter by chapter - each chapter a hub on militant Irish Republicanism and for me that is my favourite work to date
My "super hub" is about how to rescue and raise baby sparrows. It's almost dormant at 20 views a day for much of the year. But twice a year, like clockwork, it shoots up to 300-500 views a day, and it lasts for about 2 months before it slowly wanes.
The cycle is starting right now. Last week it was getting 25 views a day, and it currently has 150 for today.
I am really new to hubpages. My best article in terms of views has had under 300 views. My best Hub (the one that I am most pleased with in terms of the content) has had less than 100. I am up to about 1350 views in total in the four weeks or so that I have been a member. Views are great and I am proud that people have read what I have written but I have only earned £4.85 so far so am a bit disappointed with that! I need to keep learning if I want to start earning (you can use that quote if you like!!)
I think you are doing quite well. All of your stats are on the high side for someone who has been here only a few weeks.For almost all of us, it starts slowly and builds slowly, too. Hope you stick with it, because I believe you will make it work over time.
I made a video game hub that I published in early December 2010. This hub went viral (to an extent). It started to receive 1000 views a day. The views would change a bit between 650-1000, but 1000 was the peak. Even...
I was loving that my traffic was doubled for a while... it was hitting levels I had never seen before on HubPages.But today I just noticed it's down at least 1,000 views, and I check pretty much every day.I'm not sure...
A couple years ago in 2011, I had a hub on another account that went up to 5000 views rapidly. Eventually it waned to about 1000-1300 views. Now after a couple years it gets about a few hundred views a day...
First a disclaimer is in order.I broke the evergreen rule with this approach. I knew it going in and did it anyway. What the hell, sometimes rules are made to be broken. Sometimes a gamble pays off, often it doesn't. I...
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...
