    I have no clue really how to get traffic - but I am delighted that I am approaching my first 1000 views and one hub is close to hitting the 300 views.

    Thanks to my fans/friends here on HP as well as Adland and Face Book.

    Hip Hip .......

        Sir Dent - Yeah - if only I had more time I could write more ,,, LOL All the best and thanks for your words!

    But the views are not that high.

      LOL - Love it when someone tells it like they see it!

      If I was trying to make money doing this I would be disgusted - but I'm doing it to share a little about things that matter to me. The feedback I'm getting tells me I touched a couple people - that to me is worth more than money!

      Again Top Stuff - Thanks for being blunt and telling it like you see it!

      So you know it did not offennd me it reminds me of a quote "Balls" said the Queen ... "If I had some I'ld be king."

      LOL

      Cheers Bro

    Congratulations, 1000 views is a good first level to reach smile

    Why would you say that? I'm glad no one had that kind of reaction to my little 2000 view celebration. I've seen my traffic steadily grow since then.

    Neil, I'll join the "congratulations" chorus! I've thrilled to be at hubpages, and I believe even slow progress will be long-term progress!

      Dineane - Thanks for your kind words - Like I said though - I'm not intending to make a dime here - I have other ventures doing that very well indeed!

      Thanks again!

    I agree, Niel.

    As long as some numbers are going up, and people are reading, it's a good thing.  I especially  love it when people find something to laugh at in my hubs. Laugher is healthful.

    Some of my hubs are more serious--  I may have some useful information to share, even when a little silliness creeps in.

    I look at my numbers-- but don't get  too focused on them.

    I am really happy to get hits and feedback.   I am not looking  at this as a way to earn streams of pennies every day, though I will be happy if  I can buy a gallon of gasoline/petrol at some point.

    We all want more.. but at certain times we can be happy for what we have.

    Therei s value here, it makes me happy frequently.

    Hey Neil that's great news. Congratulations - you have every reason to boast! :-)

    Grats man.  Rome wasn't built in a day.  Keep laying down the roads, bro.  1000 is a cool milestone.

    And Rochelle, seriously, you are a freaking crack up.  The only thing holding you back from being a national humor figure is probably that you don't realize how funny you are.

      Shadesbreath - I thank you too. Nice of you to mention Rochelle's humor too!

    Neil, you can boast any time you like. Every website has to start somewhere, and I am in the same kind of boat as you. As we speak, I have a total of just over 3700 hits, and about 1000 of those hits have been in two of the hubs. I haven't posted any celebratory comments because I do realize that I have a long way to go before I'll be respectable. This is not to minimize your accomplishment. I have faith that if I stay with it, the numbers will increase, and so will yours. Keep it up!

      Hey Crash Cromwell - thanks for the encouragement - all the best to you too!

    Just remember, it's not always "how many" hits...but "Who" hits.  I do less writing on Hubpages than I do anywhere, but google still loves me here, and the other place.  Besides that, someone saw one of my Articles that led to a real writing job!  lol.  Numbers are numbers, just do your best, learn what you can, keep improving, and to He** with the Nay-sayers.

    Hi Neil -
    It's a good start. Like you, I'm not writing here to make money. But the quality of feedback available on Hubpages is higher than anywhere else I've written.

    1. Neil Sperling profile image87
      Neil Sperlingposted 8 years ago in reply to this

      Thanks Paraglider - I agree with you 100% - the Hub pages are great for feedback! Cheers

    Boast away.

    Almost to a goal of 1000 is definitely something to celebrate.

    I figure 1000 people actually reading my work is better than 100,000 who simply click on it and click away to something better.

      Neil Sperlingposted 8 years ago in reply to this

      Stacie - I agree 100% - the quality of traffic is more important than the numbers - for those who are wanting to earn a living doing this then the numbers are more important ... LOL  - tit for tat!
