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...
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..
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!
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.
**"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.
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)?
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.
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.
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 am experiencing an overall average off 66 percent less page views per day, for seven days versus a week previous and for the past two months. Such a huge drop in page views makes me think that Google has tuned...
Hi Everyone,So I'm over here from Triond, checking out the competition and seeing if there's anywhere better.In general I like Triond. Yes, it's an anarchic wasteland with editors who screw up more than they fix, little...
Is anyone else seeing a strange spike today? I've been getting less than 10 page views per day lately, but it's over 500 today and still rising. The source is undetectable using Analytics, Webmaster Tools, or HubPages...
