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.
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.
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 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;)
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?
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.
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.
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.
Hi Fellow Hubbers!I have done a bit of (unscientific) averaging of AdSense income on HubPages.com, and calculated an earnings rule for Hubs:On average, any given hub will earn about $10.00 per year.My page showing my...
I took my 30-days page views count; divided it by 30 and further divided it by the number of published hubs. Thus I got a fair representation of my average number of visitors per day per hub. It comes to a whopping 1.6!...
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...
I hear people talking all the time about hubs that produce good readership, but I know this number differs for many. In your case, how many views per month do you think is good for any given article? Just...
First, I want to apologize if you've heard this question a 1000 times before, but I'd be grateful if you could advise me from your experience.If I was to publish a large number of hubs across various topics, each...
