How many page views did you get in your first week as a Hubber?

    I joined HubPages just over a week ago, and I have achieved over 200 views. Keeping in mind I have no SEO knowledge whatsoever, and hardly know about keywords, I think this is pretty good, but i may be wrong...

    Can anyone help me figure this out?

      New hubbers usually get a lot of views when they first start. Mainly because there is a section here just for them. I know I received quite a bit with my first couple hubs. I was also nominated, and received a hub nugget award shortly after I joined. And, I received a lot of page views just from the nomination.

      And, I still don't know much about anything. All I do is write hubs and hope for the best. I don't know any of the tech stuff either. It's a learning process, and, some people catch on a lot quicker than others. Those who have the most know-how have the best success.

        congrats on the aware - its definitely an accomplishment...

        i agree with you though - SEO knowledge is what really helps...i read a few hubs on SEO optimisation, and i implemented some of their advice..it seems to have improved the traffic minimally, but i need to work on gettin some non-Hubpages traffic as well as intrasite traffic..

      I've been here for a week and posted three hubs. I didn't do any promotions, because I spent much time learning about the site and watch what others are doing. I got 80 views.

    When I first started i only got around 100 views the first week. (hubpages didnt have such a nice program set up for new hubers, and also didnt have the hubhopper etc)

    Views are nice but I believe very few of those 200 are from Google or other sites. Traffic from Hubpages is nice, it means your at least getting some readers. But you arent making money off hubpage traffic, only off site ones (or should be).

    I don't remember how many I had, but it sounds like you're getting off to a good start! Everything takes time, so enjoy learning. The Learning Center is a great place to find some helpful advice and videos. The link is at the bottom of each page.
    Welcome!

    I just looked at your hubs. You have some very informative, well-written hubs! smile

      thanks a lot for your pointer about the learning centre...theres so much info, i almost dont know where to start!

      and regarding your comment about my hubs...its a pleasure to write them and im glad seasoned Hubbers like yourself appreciate my efforts smile

    I don;t remember, but 200 views for the first week sounds pretty solid for me. Good luck! smile

      thanks for the encouragement...i think most of the views were internal (i.e. from hubbers) but its still a start...this way i get writers critiquing my hubs first - it gives me a chance to edit them...

    I have been here for a little less than a week and have published 7 hubs.  Have about 400 views.  I did some research on the topics though, and take long looks at advice hubs.  I did post some of them on social book marking sites also.

    Great start.  You are though going to have to reduce the numbr of Amazon Ads to comply with the new Hubpages policy

      for real? i tried to edit a few of my Hubs and it told me i had to remove Amazon capsule as my first full length capsule (which is what i did) but i didnt realise any other amendments were needed sad

        1 Amazon product per every 50 words is the new standard

  7. barryrutherford profile image27

    hinazille
    I actual ad for Amazon per 50 words

    **"The second, is related to the formatting of hubs.  We now require that you have at least 50 words of text for each Amazon or eBay product that is configured to be displayed on your hub, and you can no longer use an Amazon, eBay, Link, News, or RSS capsule as the first full width capsule in a hub.  New hubs that violate these stipulations will be blocked from publication.  A warning will appear on existing hubs that violate these rules."

      I joined about two weeks ago and have 13 hubs now.  I'm up to about 214 views and have noticed that they have started slowing down.  Even my new hubs don't get as many views as quickly as they first did.  Having said that, I have done some SEO, but the topics have all been what I wanted to write about, I just did a little research to help give them direction.

        I suggest you start to promote them on Twitter Facebook etc..

          Adventure Coloradposted 6 years ago in reply to this

          I have thought about it, I haven't posted any of my hubs to facebook since I use it for my blog posts.  I do need to look into Twitter though.

            Well, I went ahead and created a Twitter account, now I just need to figure out how to get some followers and traffic through it.

              yes i think thats the main issue i am having - who would i add on to twitter and wouldnt it be odd to just use the twitter account for marketing/promoting my articles (im not interested in a social twitter account)?

              1. Adventure Colorad profile image89
                Adventure Coloradposted 6 years ago in reply to this

                That's where I am at exactly.  I don't really care to update people on my day to day life, but I do want to get people interested in my creative creations.  I guess I will try to start adding some some people on Twitter and hope that I get followers back.  I think one of the long term benifits is that when you link to your hubs you create back links, which will eventually help you improve your standings in search results.

                  i just created a twitter page - add me if you create one too smile

                  http://bit.ly/hogmrm

                  Oh and yes you are right the backlinking and possible increased traffic to your hubs would make it worthwhile in the end im sure smile

                  check out my new hub i just posted..your comments would be welcome, i seem to have stirred someone the wrong way already :I

                    If you have hashtags after your twitter posts people who are not following you but search for that topic will find your post.

                    For example

                    #movies #hubpages

                    A few people have followed me because I always use hashtags. I always use the #hubpages one for my hubs.

                    Just followed you, I am Sukee.

                Now that you've got me interested in Twitter I have been doing some searching here and elsewhere.  I have started to add some people and will try to get this ball rolling, thanks.

      The views you get the first few weeks are great, but they're mainly other hubbers, which won't make you money (if that's what you want).  You're likely to see a slow down of hubber traffic and a gradual rise in search engine traffic, which is what you probably ultimately want.

      Good luck!

        that is what i want so hopefully the search engine traffic will start picking up soon!!

        I don't know which hubs that they searched, though. Any suggestion on how o track which??
        Thank you.

          Hi Karanda, I just checked it inside my google adsense account using the first week as filter. I have to go back to the month when I first joined and set the filter. Before then I remember I don't check it at all.

      I got a lot (about the same as you) in my first couple of weeks, then it slowed down and more of my traffic started coming from Google and Yahoo. Now I'd say it's about equal.

      My third day, here. I have around 200 something impressions with about 8 hubs. The biggest hits is 'School fired ex-porn star teacher'. lol A hundred hits in one day.
