I am very excited to claim this many page views! I have been on HP for over a year, and to many, this # may seem somewhat pitiful, but it's hard work to become known on any writing site, and I am thrilled that my words have been viewed over 7,000 times! I really love this site.
you know that shake and bake commercial where the kid says..."and I helped." I wanted to put a picture in here for that, but couldnt find one. Instead I learned there is shake and bake meth.???!!!! yay interent.....
anyway, thats awesome lorlie, and I am sure your going to get many many more views!
I'll celebrate with you, lorlie - I crossed that 7000 mark today as well.
Have you looked at the world map on analytics? You're right that it's neat to think that 7000 people have read my gibberish, and that map shows where they are from. I've watched as the world turned green (except for Africa) and enjoyed the thought that my hubs are all over the world. Fun.
I am pleased by this too, especially because I also had a 100 score at the same time for a while today! The money is getting better too on both Adsense and Amazon. Gotta work on the Amazon sales more, though!
But this is just fun for me, the other stuff is just gravy!
Much like me, Randy. The only linking I do is between my hubs and occasionally someone else's, and a few RSS feeds to the sites sunforged provided. One day as more money comes in I may pay for some backlinking, but for now I'm pleased with my results. Nearly half my hubs are on googles page 1 or 2; with most of them less than 2 months old that's good enough.
Of course, the other half aren't to be found anywhere at all and the traffic shows it!
I really need to use the RSS feeds more, probably! But all that stuff bores the heck out of me. Since I write mainly for fun it's hard to get motivated enough to do all of that junk. I average about 1000 views a day now and look for it to keep climbing in the future.
Well, that's what I figure as well. I used the feeds in the hopes it would get me indexed faster, and I think it did. It only took me about 2 hours to build all the links and submit them to everything in such a way that any new hub I write gets shown for a while.
A dual purpose - the setup also lets me provide a RSS on each hub to similar topics I wrote previously, which I think is a good thing.
No way, really? So cool, wilderness! I've never understood what the map was all about, so thanks for the heads up. It is crazy to imagine folks reading my craziness, too-gotta love it! Thanks, Randy-I hope so!
That's what it is. Try clicking to expand the map, then click the US, then a state. It just keeps expanding clear down to towns. Funny, though - it has me (the big Idaho reader for my hubs) in the wrong town. I assume that's where my ISP is.
I also see that California has passed Idaho for readership - I take that to mean that my organic traffic has passed well beyond my HP traffic (me).
Exactly! I have over 300 hubs, good luck to anyone trying to figure out which ones get the most hits and which ones make the most money because the ones with the most hits don't necessarily have the highest scores or make me the most money. I can say that every single hub that DOES make me the bulk of my money were NOT hubs written for that purpose. It just worked out that way.
Congrats Lorlie! I have always made it a habit to write down the date of each milestone. I still track each 10,000 pageviews. It's encouraging to go back and look at how much closer each one comes around. In the next 24 hrs I will pass 370,000 pageviews.
Good Lord, you guys make our paltry 7,000 look, well, pretty danged paltry! 370,000?? Wow. KCC, I like that idea of keeping track of these stats, thanks for the suggestion. I have been noticing that my stats are looking better recently, I'm not sure why, but I think I'll keep track of things on paper.
I have been watching my page view numbers every day for the last few months and finally hit 100,000 tonight. BUT...now I want to get the 1 million accolade before I have finished 2 years on HP. I plugged the numbers in...
but compared to some with many more hubs I feel pleased with my progress. I could probably do better if I backlinked my hubs but they seem to do okay without the effort. Each of us have our own methods and...
Well I have been here a month to the day and I've just passed 10,000 page views. I'm very happy with the way it's gone and am really enjoying Hubpages. Lot's of people have given me excellent advice and some...
