Traffic stories

    I thought it might be fun to see hubbers' different 'traffic stories' since joining.  Actual number removed to protect the innocent and respect the TOS.  Please add your own!  It seems like people have had all kinds of different experiences and I would love to compare and contrast.

      This hub is relevant - out-of-date but still fun.

      Internet traffic drawings go viral.  I can see it now.

    Mine are very boring. Panda doesn't seem to know I exist. But then, on Hubpages, neither does Google!


    Hubpages:

    This is what my traffic looks like when I don't bother much with SEO.


    Another article site:

    This is what my traffic looks like when I use basic on-page SEO.


    And meanwhile, on my blog where I don't worry about SEO, I'm getting another 10,000 visitors a week and making almost zero money on the few ads I've got there. What's wrong with this picture?

    Are you a top-rated author on that other site, being promoted by that site at all?

    Err... I donno what you mean by "promoted?" I just do my own thing. I've had some years to master and improve "my own thing."

    Hubpages is a challenge that I set for myself: can I duplicate that success, and thereby increase my skills? There are barriers on Hubpages which won't let me use some of the techniques that work elsewhere, so that's forcing me to do things differently.

      I have no doubt you'll duplicate your success here, Greekgeek, if that's what you want.  I understand, a little, from my examinations of the other platforms, that things are set up differently here.

    Once I get to a payment a month I will be looking to try another site.  It pays to diversify!

    I joined Hubpages after the first devastating panda. My traffic has seen wild fluctuations that initially I put down to being a new hubber and to having "young" hubs. However, since this time, the fluctuations have made me feel "drunk" on occasion.
