    Just wanted to show everyone the progression of hitting 200,000 pageviews.  I remember a time when I thought 10,000 was a million miles away.  It really does begin to snowball once you get going and continue to publish hubs.  Before March is over I will have published over 300 hubs.

      Nice work KCC, good to see your progression (the traffic increase looks to be growing exponentially -- which is a great sign for us all)

      I don't know who I love more, you or Nelle. You give me great hope in turning my writing into a nice sideline income.

      Good work, KCC.

        Oh come on.....you can't mean that!  Challenge yourself.  Tell yourself you're going to double your hubs by a certain time.  Whatever seems reasonable to you, but yet is a little challenging so that you have to push a little to do it.  You'll see amazing results.

    That's fanatastic KCC - and motivating for those that like to see such stats big_smilebig_smile

    Where did you get the beakdown from? I hit the 100k back in January or February I think. Be good to see the difference smile

    Thank you KCC! I was wondering what it took. Guess I am okay then, I am currently approaching 3000.

    Really interesting trend. As FD asked do you keep track each month of the traffic change or is there an easy way to pull that up?

    And great job on all of those hubs and traffic. Some might not realize that you have a full-time job that keeps you pretty busy as well.

  6. KCC Big Country profile image85
    KCC Big Countryposted 7 years ago

    Thanks for all the congrats.

    As Nelle pointed out, I work full-time as a numbers cruncher for a large insurance company.  I have a crew of 4 and we all create reports using large databases of information.  So, numbers and stats are my game.

    I keep records of my HP stats myself, noting when I hit every 10,000 pageviews.  You may have noticed I missed catching when I hit 150,000 pageviews.  It appears to have occured somewhere around Christmas.  I have lots of other stats to go along with these.  I'm just wired that way. smile   

    Obviously, results will vary based on the popularity of your hubs.  You could have 10 hubs and have more pageviews than I do.  The number of hubs you have doesn't automatically mean more pageviews, but it certainly increases your chances of hitting on something someone likes.

    That's great KCC - I don't know how you found a way to count your stats like that either? EDIT: OK I've just seen your response.

    I've just gone past 150,000, so hopefully I will be catching you up soon! There certainly is a snowball effect, and from my HP experience it takes about 4 months of regular publishing to start seeing it happen.

    Thanks for sharing and motivating others smile

    Thanks very much for posting your stats. I'm almost at 8000 views after 5 months and I wondered if at any time soon I might start to see a big rise. It has already risen. I hit my 1000 mark in December so that is is almost 7000 views in the 3 months since. I find it fascinating to watch. I'm not earning anything, but I expect that will come with traffic. Thanks for keeping us motivated!

      8000 views, Iz, and no money yet?  Now THAT astounds me, and is discouraging...

        Just noticed this - well, I've earned about €30, plus about $55 from Amazon. But not a lot, hardly anyone clicks my ads, must be doing something wrong. However, I live in hope smile

    Thanks guys! I didn't publish for the congrats.  I published it so that others can see how it grows if you just stick with it.  Don't get discouraged.  Keep writing!

    That's great, KCC!

    I'd like to second the sentiment of sticking with it.  From my experience, that's the perfect attitude to have.  Things seem to get exponential over time.  My 30 day total views right now is 185,200.

      Okayyyyyy. Relache is another of my heros. I do have a lot of them  here.

      A whole lot'ta heros.

      I look forward to reading your stuff daily. A total addict, I must confess.

    KCC Big Countryposted 7 years ago

    Thanks relache!  Wow,185,000 views in 30 days is mighty impressive! My top money earning hubs keep a steady pace, but what really pushed my views up were my seasonal (Halloween and fall) hubs.  I've never quite replaced the traffic I lost after Nov 1.  In other words, I haven' produced a hub that gets as much traffic as they were getting.  Guess I still have this fall to look forward to.  smile

    In the last two days, Google.de (that's Google Germany for those who don't know what the 'de' is) has suddenly sent me over 10,000 views to a single Hub.  And it's an older one that I thought just needed a little bit of sprucing up 'cuz it seemed tired.

    Never under-estimate older Hubs or freshening them up if it's been a while...

  14. KCC Big Country profile image85
    KCC Big Countryposted 7 years ago

    That's great advice Relache!  I made a run through some older hubs a while back and it generated a little flurry, but nothing like you experienced.  Well done!   Makes me want to go dusting off some old hubs.  smile

      Same here...lol I'm still about 2 days away from hitting the 100,000 mark. I hope it keeps snowballing after that. My day job has been keeping me busy lately and I've been slacking in my hub production as well as promoting my other online properties.  I really need to learn proper time management. smile

  15. relache profile image85
    relacheposted 7 years ago

    I'd say I go back and revisit old stuff at least once or twice a year, but this isn't the sort of thing that usually happens.  Only it does show me that the occasional "dusting off" is a good idea even if it is unpredictable.

    Goddamnit, why didn't you sign up through my referral link?!

    I have only had five hubs published by one of my referals sad

    Izzy I'm kinda where you are. I just crossed the 6 moth threshold even though it says 9 I didn't really start writing here until Sept so just over 6 months now and starting to see daily clicks on the adsense. All I can say is keep reading and writing.

    Wonderful~ 

    I have no idea how many I really had because I deleted a fair portion of mine off and on, including some fairly good pol ones but felt they were old news.  I'm sitting under about 100k now but most of what I have up is my unpoetry so I think that's not too bad.

    Your viewage is fantastic, though, wtg.
