100,000 Hub views achievement
One awesomely intense year hubbing, writing, and communicating efforts
So far a vast majority of the articles this author was responsible for writing, was done for the hubpages community and placed into such a topic category here. Many of them have done pretty well statistically, and hopefully other writers can learn to do the same with their efforts someday (Many hubpages authors write about this awesome community, but the more the merrier).
However, making efforts to keep community hub article stats up and moving steadily, isn't an easy feat at all, because anything written for the internal aspects of the hubpages network and for that of the community itself is a complete and utter sacrifice for the most part. (Articles written by hubbers about the community don't get much search engine web traffic, as those that are written for the web of viewers as a whole on other various subject matter.)
This may very well be due to HP community web traffic coming primarily from hubpages itself, which isn't many users compared to the world wide web as a whole. Now the fact that mostly new hubbers are the ones looking for this sort of helpful knowledge helps such content to receive a steady flow, but its very low and a smaller amount may come from online searchers or hubbing veterans as well.
Note: This info is primarily referring to and based upon all the hub traffic this sub domain's location has received over the course of a year and 4 months thus far, and isn't a true indicator of the overall traffic coming to and from this hubpages network itself or to any other sub domains.
Links capsule video tutorial
Using the links capsule is powerful! & worked for me
- It's how I was able to draw more and more web traffic from within the network here over time (Besides all the other SEO factors, and writing quality requirements).
- It also helped me to establish my 100 HP community hubs as a actual resource here, that others could navigate, simply to locate both relevant and related hub articles.
Hub GPS (Navigation is key!)
Now by making hubs into a navigable informative useful resource here, these hubs will actually become evergreen in nature over time and may keep your stats consistently seeing results and even when the other articles you've written get taken down by search engines updates and all. (This is done by using the Links capsule & by grouping hubs together from your my account section)
So they pretty much can be a sort of digital life boat, and life preserver in a way. So far this sub domain has earned the top 25 position back in November of 2012 (Thanks! to my friends, to all my followers and visitors from all around the globe), and in terms of web statistics and traffic. I would like to also thank Alocsin for projecting all the stats onto a cool hub he wrote a little while back, that showcased this happening and occurrence using an Alexa web statistics analysis. Titled "Top 100 Hubbers by Traffic Percentage for November 2012 Are you on the List"
By writing over 100 hubpages community articles, it allowed for me to keep up a steady fight when it came to having to deal with hub traffic loses, and definitely after we all got hit by Google Panda back in September this year. (I battled day and night to get my stats back up, and it took a great deal of editing, proof reading and self optimization.) This article details it all titled "How to achieve the Top 100 spot on Hubpages in regards to hub statistics"
Note: Once you learn to utilize the links capsule, you will need to either locate your own relevant hubs on it, or that of your fellow hubbers relevant hubs to create navigable links. Once done properly, its then considered to be known as a hubpages resource, and after creating an internal navigation using such a link listing.
Grouping hubs (Spells more traffic!)
If you create groupings of hubs within the powerful niche of community hubs and within your sub domains here. Google shall begin to favor it over time, due to the fact that the hubpages home domain is being reinforced due to added SEO. Once the Hubpages style of SEO (Also known as Hubkarma) kicks into overdrive from internal HP searches, at times hub traffic will begin to surge a great deal as well, thus poring in higher and higher stats, and of course if everything else was already covered by the hubpages author in terms of content placement and all.
Grouping Conclusion -
So, if your articles are written with clarity, usefulness, and true supportive community purposes, every once in a while new hubbers seeking to learn more while locating such content will even choose to follow you, and since you indeed have earned your place here.
Many Hubber veterans may also locate many of our How to - HP community hubs here as well, and especially when looking to polish their hub writing and content placement skills or SEO knowledge if anything has changed on the web as a whole.
(This is where the evergreen action steps in - Your hubs need to be relevant and be highly informative though especially if your writing to help the HP community).
The raw deal!
Actually I received almost more hubpages internal traffic to my sub domain here, then I receive from Google, go figure!
This is all due to me making the decision when I first started as a hubber to writer about all of my experiences within the hubpages system, and at each and every learning phase and interval of achievement as well.

Learning from experience
I'm sure you've read and noticed other hubs by me (If not give the Cloud Explorer profile a good overview), and this activity of constant motivation, supporting the community, writing the most helpful hubs I could ever muster up. All those facts plus the added continuous self optimization efforts that I had no choice but to do, has all taken my hubbing action to the top of hubpages statistically as of the month of November 2012, I achieved the top 25 spot here in terms of web traffic standing for that given month.
It wasn't easy at all (This all took true dedication & hard working efforts)
None of this hub traffic recovery was an easy feat, because when Google Panda last hit us I suffered a massive drop and decline in overall hub traffic of 4,000+ views down. Then a vast majority of my hubs were placed on idle.
Many of them are poems and hubpages community hubs, more then half actually, and so I can see why they mostly got the idle symbol hubpages had once enacted, and since its become the difference of having an "H" symbol next to a hub on your my account section or not. (The H - stands for Featured Hub)
This prompted me to move quickly and to take swift action, which I did so not immediately though, because I just wanted to see how low my stats would actually drop, and so that if I actually would have a chance of making a recovery.
This was proof of the all out battle, and its not over yet
Hub traffic poll
Do you do enough research to help improve your hubpages traffic, and on the hubpages learning center
The research was pretty intense & I faught hard to get back up
When my overall stats had went from 14,000+ overall hub views, and dropped down to 10,000+ I was definitely humbled, and was not afraid though. I just had to begin praying that it would settle and start back picking up, but it didn't and for a week or so it began slowly drifting downwards even more toward the upper 9,900's hub views range.
That's where I decided to begin to make changes and take to the online battles, which I did a great deal of research about Google Panda's update instead of just going at it all blindfolded. I also decided to dig deep into the hubpages learning center to discover all that I could, so that my stats would be repaired.
What I had located there actually was quite surprising and I detailed it in a few hubs for the community then, and also after I learned that my intense efforts to regain my online true potential was becoming a successful initiative.
Here's the milestone achievement stats screenshot (That top blackened out hub raked in 1/5 of all of my hubpages views in itself, Simply Amazing!)
