        Even so, with some of us having multiple accounts, that really doesn't tell us how may hubbers there are, only how many accounts.

        There might only be 5 of us, for all I know!

            (I think, maybe, this one could be IzzyM, covering her 190,324 accounts' worth of Hubs and forum posts.)

            Here' one I don't recognize...

            Ok.  That's everyone responsible for all the Hubs.

                Does Greek One like dressing up as Batman?

                  I think it could be Wrylilt.  She has been known to be seen dressing up like a chicken (in the "what does your writing location look like" thread), why stop at dressing up like a chicken..    Of course, PC Unix has been known to wear a wig; and a Arlene P has shown signs of having the inclination to dress up (Easter bunny or Playboy Bunny - I'm not sure) as well.  Who knows who any of these suspicious, dressing-up, characters may be...   (Hmm.  By the way, has anyone seen Greek One with his wig and sunglasses in the same room as CMHypno???  I didn't think so.)  I think the person in the top picture could be the one behind the Hubs of Wilderness The baby disguise - not one of his most convincing; but hey, he writes thousands of Hubs a week.  Some disguises are going to be more convincing than others.)

                    ..and I suppose there are YET more disguises in those bags.  We'll know when the HP numbers jump to 240,000 by Monday.  Are you also Mighty Mom, by any chance?

          A lot of people sign up because they think they need to to comment on a hub-- they may never darken the hub doorway again. Another bunch signs up with intentions of  writing, then forget,change their minds, or keep putting it off.
          I have a friend, whom I convinced to come on board, who was having a terrible time trying to sign up. The staff helped her discover that she had signed up three years ago (to leave a comment) and forgot.
          The number of active hubbers would be way lower.

    According to HubPages there are 221,682 published users. however as was previously pointed out some have multiple accounts, and I'm thinking since it says published users it's not counting people who have accounts and are not published. You only have to count me once, I don't have multiple accounts.

  3. IzzyM profile image86
    IzzyMposted 5 years ago

    The stats are not very good all the same - out of 1 and a quarter million hubs, only 10,000 get 1000 views or more per month.

    That's less than 1% of all published hubs that enjoy even limited success.

    Maybe the apprenticeship program is long overdue!

      If 1000 views per hub per month is your idea of "limited success" I've got to spend some time picking your brain! smile

        Well, on that criterion, I do not even have limited success...

          Me neither.  I'd be really happy if I averaged just 1/2 of that figure!

          Is Izzy just bragging or do we all need to mug her one dark night and steal the secret somehow?

            IzzyMposted 5 years ago in reply to this

            Hey come on guys - 1000 a month is around 30 views a day. That is limited success, perhaps just 'showing potential'.
            Moderately successful hubs, and yes I have had had them, show at least 100 views a day (3000 a month), but successful hubs, to mind, get at least 1000 views a day. At the very least, many get an 's' at the end, and yes I have had them too, before Google struck of course!

            1. wilderness profile image95
              wildernessposted 5 years ago in reply to this

              (hangs head) I guess I'll never be successful.  I used to have a few getting that 100+ per day but the Feb. Panda update took that away and I hardly ever see that nice round number anymore.

              30 a day I see, and on more than 1% of the hubs, but not even 50% of them.  Not even limited success then.  You've made me cry.

                Yep, mine was demolished last Aug. 10th, but I still get the 100+ views a day occasionally on some hubs.  Here's hoping the traffic will return soon.

                Hey wilderness, you know there's no crying in...writing, right? lol (Apologies to A League of Their Own...)
                In my almost 3 years here, I have only 1,2, or maybe 3 hubs that get steady viewing.  By steady, I mean I get around 30+ vpd.  Sometimes.  Most of my traffic is from HP, of course, but next is Google-US, 2nd is Google-UK.  Then StumbleUpon.  Go figure.  I think I'm doing pretty well, though!
                I have no idea who this 'Panda' is/was, but he sounds like quite the bear! HAHA, I know a panda's not really a bear, but I couldn't help myself...sorry!

                Anyhoo, don't stress on success,
                love what you do.

                Only a small percentage of mine have even limited success, but the point is that some individual hubs do very well.

                Less than 1% of the hubs on this site get what I am calling 'limited success'. Only 1% of my own hubs on this account get that too, but then again I am sandboxed.

                It is not necessary to have loads of hubs published to enjoy success.

                I have another subdomain with only 12 hubs, 20% of which are enjoying limited success already, and it is a new account.

                If you have learned how to write hubs well, start a new subdomain and apply the techniques you have learned on your main account. It works - at least temporarily.

                Maybe one day when the new account gets hit by Google, your original account will spring back, who knows?

    for those that are interested, the top hub yesterday had 9,054 views according to analytics.  Last week there was a hub that went viral on fb that was getting over 60,000 views a day.  Hits happen:)

    It is determinable by this mathematical equation;

    Start with z = 1/2 * 400 * 3.14159
    Add b = 44
    Subtract the heat differential on a zero gravity void string with a weight of 0.00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000001 grams, we will call this @

    Therefore we do z + b - @ = total hubbers on HubPages smile
