    I know this can range wildly, but what would you say is a good average number of views per hub per week?

      Each hub is different.  My least popular hub may only get 10 , but my most popular one right now gets probably over 1,000.  It depends on the hub and subject.

        I looked at my analytics, the highest one gets between 2,000- 5,000/ wk.

          How would you say your comments are in numbers per hub, or highest hub.

        Yeah, I guess you're right. My hubs are really low at the moment. Do you do any marketing of your hubs? If so, where? Thanks

        I agree with Miss E, my hubs vary greatly because the topics are so different.  I've had over 2,000 in a week and then some as low as around ten (such as poetry)

      HP says good hubs get 10 views daily on an average.

        Mine average 10 per week and I make absolutely no effort at SEO or promotion whatsoever.  So that is probably a baseline figure to build from.

          10 views x 100 hub x 30 days = 30,000 views per month. If one get 1 click per 200 view its 150 clicks per month. Not bad, what do you think? But its not easy even to get 10 views for every hub. Some keyword research is a must.

            Re: "Must" to keyword research to average 10/wk, I haven't found that to be the case.

              There are no "musts".

              There are exceptions to everything.  Personally, I don't bother with keyword research at all, but that doesn't mean that I wouldn't make more money if I did.

              I'm lazy.  Here at HP I'm averaging about 5 views per hub per week, but that's over 6 months and of course it goes higher every month.  If I concentrated on things people actually search for rather than writing whatever I feel like, I'm sure that would be much higher.

              I'm not going to say "do as I say" because people should do whatever they want. If keyword research annoys you and you are happy with what you get now, don't do it.  If you find it a fascinating bit of detective work, go for it.

              But no "musts" smile

      1) would say 700-2100 views per week would be amazing. (or more)

      2)70-140 would be decent.(this is where quantity is better if hubs get this much)

      3)Then there are lower performing hubs that may only get

        There is no true answer, but in my experience that would be how I would say it. There are other factors involved such as PPC and CTR, but I am just talking about general traffic.

      My lowest hub gets 0 views (really must look into that) and my highest about 1000 but if you want to talk averages i guess im getting 20 views per hub per day!! Not great

      Suzanne Dayposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      I have 7 hubs, used to be an SEO keyword writer for a company at one point so hit the ground running. I get roughly 30 page views a day, have earnt 25 cents and been here for two weeks. I definitely agree research keywords (only broadly - to find most traffic, minimal competition type words). Also choose a topic that will sell something (eg patterns and recipes might not sell a lot whereas travel is more likely to offer BROAD SELLING OPPORTUNITIES like flights and accommodation). I feel like it's a little in limbo at present as waiting on Google's few month lag to get properly sorted out with PR etc. On 3rd page of Google with some of my hubs. Anyway, hope it picks up eventually and will wait to see what happens next....

    I am presently averaging between 7,000-10,000 views a week. wink

    What is good? Is subjective to the amount of effort given.

    *Quality of Content(including grammar)
    *Keyword rich Content
    *Unique Niche market
    *Backlinks(optional for some hubs)

    Edit: And no, I didn't give a average per hub- too varied.

    1. Karanda profile image84
      Karandaposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      Easy to calculate though. You have 143 hubs so 7,000 views averages almost 49, 10,000 views almost 70. Sheesh, your averages are excellent, must read more of your hubs and see how you do it.

    By uncanny foresight and good fortune I have stumbled either on the rarest topics that people are searching for OR managed a very creditable page 499 on Google.

    This manages to keep my views to a level where it is practical to record each one in a leatherette diary that I purchased specially.

    My two clicks I have now framed and arranged, inasmuch as you can arrange two of anything, in an alcove where I am also planning to putting my Hubnugget win accreditation.

    edit:  I just checked the Hubnugget thing.  Came second from last in the voting.  I hate Hubpages.

    It depends, I think.

    Leaving aside new hubs, mine get about 10 - 12 views a day, on average.

    Plus I have some "seasonal" hubs - so my Christmas / January ones right now have lots of views, but my Easter ones don't, oddly enough.

    Well, currently I'm getting about 800 views per hub a week. But I had a huge weekend so it'll definitely be closer to 200 next week.

      I bet you did. That was a great sense of timing. IPOD gets the Beatles and then the anniversary of John Lennon's assasination. Nice work. All this and your down in the back. Hubpages will make a greedy capitalist out of you yet;)

        Actually, the hub that got all the traffic was about cartoon characters, thanks to Facebook.

  7. Pcunix profile image89
    Pcunixposted 6 years ago

    Let us not forget that for those who care about money, views don't matter.

    My highest earning webpage made three times the money (about $75 this month so far) as the page that had four times as many visitors.   That's typical for that page.  I can't give CTR because Google doesn't like that, but I can say it is far, far higher than what is considered "normal"

    So, yeah, it's always fun to measure stuff and generally speaking more views means more money, but it is the money that matters (unless it just doesn't matter at all, which is fine, too).

    Hi All, this is a really interesting hub.  I am way below these levels on any of my hubs, but I only started 4 months ago.  I am wondering what I am doing wrong, is it my content or is it simply a matter of time?

    1. Karanda profile image84
      Karandaposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      Time definitely. Write quality content as often as you can and wait. You might want to add some more info to your profile, as this can help your author score.

    Honestly, I know that there's a lot of different opinions on this, but I believe that the amount of traffic you get isn't as important as the quality of traffic you get. Compared to some of the big boys I don't get that much traffic. Roughly 700-900 hits a day across two accounts and 150 hubs. But on the hubs where I've consciously done the research and targeted the hubs to the reader, I get more sales and clicks on less traffic, than some of the more unfocussed or poorly keyword researched ones, and some of the more ambitious hubs where I've done the research, but is in a more competitive area.

    It's something to think about. Volume will increase your chances of getting a sale or click, but lower volume with less competing pages, just might get you there just as fast. Mind you, I know there are hubbers such as Misha, who have a whole different philosophy on the traffic idea and is very successful for him. (read his hub on the subject, it is well worth the read).

    Either way, you will find that your traffic steadies and increases over time. My best performing ones had been here over a year before they started getting steady traffic.

      Why have you spread your hubs across two accounts? Is there any benefit in doing that? Are there things that don't fit in your main account that you then publish at the second account?

      1. Hovalis profile image88
        Hovalisposted 6 years ago in reply to this

        The majority of my commercial hubs are on the second account so that I don't bore any of my readers with them, and also to help protect my niches. This account has my more 'serious' writing. And, really, once you get above 100 hubs you'll find that they are harder to manage on one account.

        Let's just say, it works for me. smile

        1. simeonvisser profile image87
          simeonvisserposted 6 years ago in reply to this

          I don't mind at all that you have second account so you can indeed do whatever works for you. But if there is any strategic benefit in doing so then I'm willing to learn. I only have 10 hubs now and I'll see how to  manage it all when I have 100 or more.

    Here's my real reply on this thread.

    Hubber RyanKett got it spot on. We have entered a giant lottery and every hub is a ticket.

    Keyword researched hubs have a greater chance of winning.

    Even with good keyword research, expect only a small percentage to do well.
