At 12,000 Views What Can I Conclude About My First 214 Days On HubPages?

Updated on February 22, 2017

Feedback: it's what Hubbers thrive on.

Nothing cheers like cheers!

Tallying the votes after 12,000 viewings....

Other Hubbers have reached 12,000 views much more quickly. It took my Hubs 214 days while followers have climbed to 278 almost matching my 291 hubs. As a result of my Hubs I received 20 pieces of Fan Mail and a Feedback total of 1,114 of which 194 were deemed Useful, 49 Funny, 273 Awesome, 256 Beautiful, and 342 Interesting.

Fan Mail expressions were: 20 said Thanks, 25 said Good Writer, 1 said Hot!, 4 said You're Cool, and 17 commented Great Hubs.

Now, if only 17 won the accolade of "Great Hubs" and I'm more "Cool" than "Hot," I may need to remind myself that sometimes the Fan Mail gets written before the Follower has even read one of the Hubs!

Now, after 12,000 total viewings and a total of 291 Hubs, here are the Hubs which have the highest number in each type of rating:






The Hub which has received the most feedback when combining all categories was also the most popular in the Beautiful category:

I hope this identifying of the most commented on in each feedback category will lead you to the kind of Hubs you enjoy in each category. It has been fun writing and publishing them as a Hub.

Similarly, it has been delightful to read fellow Hubbers' Hubs.

The Feedback category for which my Hubs received the most total votes was the category of Interesting, and I hope that will continue to be the case in the months and years ahead.

      Approaching 60,000 Views of my 1,001 Hubs and about 8,900 Comments, I have 897 that are still published, of which about 65 are presently Featured. Averaging 60 Views per Hub from over 570 "once upon a time" Followers (many having abandoned HubPages) is fair, especially considering the variety of my writing interests here

      I still find it satisfying to write on HubPages, but my personal work-to-rewards ratio means weighing whether or not to market articles elsewhere before publishing them online.

      You will note from this Hub's comments that HP used to have a rating system by which other Hubbers could rate the published Hubs. For me, that system meant more work for HP, but more satisfaction for me as a contributor.

      Added note of 5/12/12: I just found out that by cutting and pasting the poem I copyrighted today into an email to family and friends, it not only provides them with a copy of the poem but also links back to HubPages and my profile! What a great tool that can be. The Hub that had the most views at 6,000 views still holds that distinction at 12,000+ views.

      April: Personal belief is that time of day does make a difference in how long one of your items is visible to Followers, while time of day also makes a difference as to how many non-followers might see it. I think it's a toss up which Hubbers you write for, because Followers will at least see the subject in their weekly updates, while others may not see them at all without searching.

      It's time I did another "Bible Story" for what I learn as well as for what it might share when someone reads one.

      Ha ha, I have yet to make a dollar in one month. Sometimes I am surprised that my favorite hubs get no feedback, views or comments, but one's I think are lest interesting see a lot more traffic. I've been trying to determine if the time or day they are published makes any difference. By the way, your wife's story has been my favorite of yours so far (although I usually forget to vote too)!

      WOW! 6,000 views after 4 months - Awesome for sure. I look forward to that many views in that interval. A HOT! Someone has either got an eye on you or they were really motivated by a certain hub, indeed.

      What a unique view on your adventure here at hub pages. The hub accolades by readers tell a story for sure. I think I will take a peek at that type of analysis to gain some wisdom.

      Recently which have been socially shared - facebook, tweets & google I ponder while attempting learning.

      Even though it is only a few dollars along the way, the percentages of activity is revealing. One month I had a 700% increase in earnings. Even though it was $1.00 growing to almost $7.00 - wow! Now if I could do a repeat performance and learn SEO. I was thinking of selling shares - smile, but wall street will have to wait - LOL.

      And, thanks to Ghaelach for the tip on copyright typing. The note is on my terminal now.

      This was a neat hub, it actually prompted me to go look at my stats to get a feel of how things were going. It sort of puts things into perspective. I want to do better always but I guess I'm doing ok... I am coming up to 4000 viewers, 30 hubs published and highest amount of views for one of my hubs is 465. I've only been here for 4 months and two of those months I was not doing anything on HP due to extreme morning sickness, so with all that in mind I guess I'm doing ok and will keep on keeping on. Thanks for the idea, it sparked my motivation to have a look at my stats. Congratulations on your achievements, I'm heading over to read a hub or two of yours now :)

      Thanks for commenting. It stirs the pot! Sharing insights is a large part of what keeps HP going for us. It is always a good time to take a look at what works for us and what hasn't yet. Make the changes, allocate the time wisely. Use HP for what it is and what it offers, and be realistic about the time, the effort, and the outcome. The old adage is correct that says "Don't put all your eggs in one basket."

      Thanks for sharing and informing. One of my hubs still gives me moments of deep thought. Since I also Tweet and FB I'm not sure if it's good or bad but the hub has been read at least 30 times but no comments ever. Anyway keep those hubs coming I do enjoy them. Gave you a voted up and interesting on this one.

      Morning Demas.

      An interesting find on which has good feed back and which hasn't.

      I will really have to do the same with mine as I don't have to many visits for the amount of time I'm at HP compared with other hubbers.

      I tend to do 2/3 days research ½ a day writing and then another ½ a day editing and then publishing.

      You gave me a lot to think about with this hub.

      LOL Ghaelach

      That highest Hub views was 124.

      Demas W Jasper 6 years ago from Today's America and The World Beyond

      For ib radmaster : my highest number of views was for my book-length Hub about Mrs. Santa's dog (it has a current Hub Score of 73, and was completed on 11/25/2011 and last changed on 12/8/2011. The lowest number of views was for "Where Is The Beauty of...World" which has a score of 53 with 12 views and 1 comment since it was first published as a Hub on 11/09/2011.

      By the way, I hope more people will read your Hub and comment with their own Top 10 important issues for this Election and watch the primary debate tonight 2/22/12, or listen to it to see how many of what they see as important issues are actually discussed.

      I have made so much money that I have yet to have a payment into my PayPal account from HubPages, GoogleAdsense, and Amazon combined! If my understanding is correct, that means that combined, their payments are less than $10 for the 175 Hubs I have published since October 10th 2011. Those who have a "Hub of the Day" obviously get a load of views for that prominence,

      and featured Hubbers used as examples of how much potential there is for earnings get lots of views that boost their earnings. Some categories of Hubs have greater earning potential, and backlinks, sharing, tweeting, etc. all play a part, while the "who gets how much for what" seems still cloaked in mystery.

      Here's some feedback for you. I am glad you are here. I have a confession. Sometimes I forget to vote, so you may have done better. I have to admit that I was disappointed after my first month. I only made $7.00. Then the next month, I realized it was because of an eBay sale . . . I made less. I am not much at social networking yet, so I don’t get much traffic. I am used to writing for print and getting paid by the word.

      Still, I enjoy this venue, and will be seeing you around.

      ib radmasters 6 years ago from Southern California

      For 175 hubs with 6000 total views, the average is 34.

      It would be interesting to know the highest views and the lowest views.

      Also the same for comments.
