10M and I Am Gone

    SunSevenposted 5 years ago

    I am close to 10M on HP. After the Panda attack I started concentraing my own sites / and/or building new sites.

    To be truthful, I am pleasantly surprised. Now my adsense revenue from my own sites surpass what I make here.

    The 10M is an ego trip, thats all.

    Warm Regards
    SunSeven

    PS: May be I will still be around, like cagsil.

      I am already putting some work into my own websites and your post has motivated me to put some serious effort into them.

      BTW, you working on niche sites or the flagship ones?

      AWESOME GIRL smile

      I have my own fully designed website for artists but have to get off my butt and make the switch.  Thanks you just put some winds back in my sails.  Unlike Cagsil lol

      Congratulations! You deserve everything good you get.

      I have heard a lot of people say they are working on their own sites now. I think maybe this is what Google wanted, for us to get away from writing for article sites. Still, I appreciate the opportunity these sites gave me. I would not have been able to pay my bills were it not for them.

      I am lucky to have found a good real life job, and don't write much anymore, here or anywhere else. By the time I get off work, I am too tired to write. Maybe when the rampaging panda calms down, I will start my own blog, but right now, I'm content to live in the real life world, although I do like to check in to see how everyone is doing.

    Hope my own sites surpass my HP earnings, I've been able to get in some good PR6, 5 links to it, just waiting for it to rise from 7th on Google first page to top 3 lol

    Congrats SunSeven!  I hope you received at least a dime for every view!  I'd wager HP makes much more from your hubs than you do! smile

    You are absolutely correct SunSeven, having couple of own websites can earn you much more than what you make on HP. Just it takes little more effort but it is really worthwhile.

    you were the first person I read about on Hubpages;actually one of your articles was the reason I continued to come back to HP and eventually open an account.
    I'm sad you're leaving. maybe share some of your other webpages addresses so i can visit. smile

    Congratulations SunSeven! How I wished that your 10M hits turns into €10M Adsense earnings for you. big_smile Your hubs were quite inspirational and core steping stones for me on IM journey when I joined HubPages. I'm out to your profile page to admire your Accolade. Well Done SunSeven!

                     
    Edit: Oh you wrote that you're close to 10M on HP. Beautiful. I just checked your profile. Well done!

    Good luck with your 10M hits - it will take me decades to reach that total.  Currently, all my hubs have all but died in the last six weeks, hardly any hits at all after a great first two months this year.

    I beginning to wonder if there is wrong - Google/Adsense are not that keen that I live on a tax haven... The USA have it in for tax haven at the moment.

    Perhaps, a website of my own is the way forward, but still might have problems with payments and living on a tax haven...

    That's one accomplishment to be proud of regardless. smile

    Congrats for when you surpass it. smile

    Wow 10 M...I just recently reached 1 M...it will probably take me several several years to reach ten m...hehehhhe

    Congrats on nearing 10M!! To be honest I don't think I will ever reach that achievement. I just reached 1000 views, and have not even thought about the 10k mark yet.

    I am glad to see your sites are doing well too though. I actually just began a blog site that i have been working on for the past week. I hope to make it popular with Google soon.

    LuisEGonzalezposted 5 years ago

    I have been here for about 4 months and am close to the 10M mark. But this is possible because of the advice given by fellow hubers when I first started "write many quality articles and the views will come"

    So I did and according to my estimates I should reach 10m by this same time next week. I cannot thank enough the hubers who freely and unselfishly offered their advice and knowledge and because of them I will stay on HP hoping to weather the Google storm.

    LuisEGonzalezposted 5 years ago

    Sorry I made an error, I meant 10 thousand views not 10 million, God forbid I would reach 10 million on 4 months...lol I couldn't handle it. Again I apologize for the typo.

    My stats reads this figure at this moment:
    9,922,035

    How long do I have to wait to cross the 10M mark?

    C'mon fellow hubbers. ! smile

      I predict you will make it June 10th.  My crystal ball tells that is a very good possibility.

    is this a Hubpages record?
    They should celebrate if it is!

      Absolutely not. But I guess it may fit into the top 20 category.
