I try and read the Hub of the Day each day because I think I will learn from a Hubber who is so good that they have their work chosen. The one that "got my goat" was one that had photos that were NOT credited. I don't think I'll ever make Hub of the Day.
Hey Wordscribe, I guess that sort of answers my question indirectly, but did you get over 200+ views the day it was? Or more? I'm just curious. Of course it's not going to make you money and I guess that's the disappointment aspect of it because almost all the traffic is Hubbers.
But, I'd like to know how many views is being talked about? I just published a hub that came out last night and as of tonight it's still rocking over 200+ views.
Let me go back and check... can't remember exactly. BRB.
Okay, not as easy to check as I'd thought because it was a while ago. It was around 200 TOPS per day, I'd say. It continued for a few days, too. It IS my best performing hub on that account, but I don't think it's because it was HOTD. It was doing alright before that... So, HOTD is no big shakes.
I'm not so sure of that, Cagsil. When mine made HOTD, my traffic rose, CPM (HPads) remained pretty stable, and earnings went up as a result. It was up around 10-15% for about a week, which should be significant and not merely coincidental.
I put it down to HPads being mostly impression, not click.
I had one recently - it had calmed down from it's initial HP surge but had not gotten anything from google yet. It jumped to about 250 per day when it made HOTD.
Interestingly, as HP traffic died over the next week, google traffic picked up and it was promptly getting around 200+ per day. It has pretty much died since - not unexpected as it was about Xmas. I do have to wonder, though, if making HOTD helped the google traffic.
All very unusual for my hubs. I seldom see 200 per day for any hub.
So now you need to write the Hub about this weird day in the life of that particular combination of Big Brother contestants (plus possible a few more well chosen individuals like Stalin and Hitler to spice things up a bit).
This might be a complete co-incidence, but I switched to the new profile a couple of days ago, and today Google is pretending it doesn't know me. Hubs that ranked on the first page for main keyword are not found...
I was sorry to see that this forum thread was closed to comments by HP:http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/78912#topThere was a lot of good information going back and forth there. It may be that some snipe stuff went on...
I have been struggling with Google traffic and finally out of frustration, I unpublished close to 30 hubs that simply weren't getting traffic.If I leave these unpublished for more than 30 days, will they look new to...
