If you’ve ever wondered how many visitors it takes to be a top hubber? Google’s free DoubleClick Ad Planner offers some insight to that question. This tool allows media planners to discover the best sites for their ads and displays a wealth of information including the number of people who visit HubPages and its top subdomains.
In general, the Ad Planner data is similar to those shown by Alexa though not quite with the same numbers. Alexa is another information resource. However, while Alexa shows percentages of visitors, Ad Planner reveals numbers.
The following statistics come from Ad Planner and are sorted from the highest to the lowest number of visitors. The number of unique monthly visitors are listed in parentheses after each subdomain (hubber).
