Hitting 10,000 views inside 2 months on Hubpages: Stats, earnings and more
Today (07/26/2012) marks another day to celebrate on Hubpages. I have finally hit the 10,000 mark page views since I joined Hubpages about two months ago, what makes it even more joyful is to reach this mark inside two months of my stay here. Off course, this would not have happened without the help of other hubbers and the wonderful Hubpages community.
I would say that when I first joined Hubpages, I was not very sure how I would go about it, I was not sure if I could write online or if I will ever have any followers here. At this stage, I’m sure a novice can write on Hubpages and make a successful online writing career.
I find writing about stats being very helpful and myself I have read other hubbers’ stats to evaluate my trend on Hubpages. Some of these hubs about stats contain useful information that can be worthy reading especially on writing hubs and progress.
I have found myself peeking on those stats when I wanted answers to different questions on page views and traffic. Well, it never occurred to me that one day I will write about my personal stats but that time has come now.
This is my 45th hub and since I joined Hubpages I have learnt a lot about online writing but I still feel I have a lot learn. I have not used any keyword research on my hubs since I’m yet to learn about the use of keywords although I could have used keywords unknowingly. One thing I have done actively is to promote my hubs on other sites for backlinks.
I have built stacks on Delicious.com, created chimes on Chime.in, created pearls on pearltrees and also shared links on Digg, RedGage, Stumbleupon, Facebook, Twitter, Google+, eHow, Pinterest, Blinklist and Reddit (before Reddit blocked URLs from Hubpages). When I learnt how to use RSS, I submitted my RSS to Google, Bing, Yahoo search and Babylon.
The stats listed below are from 44 hubs and at the time of posting this hub, my bio is reading “Joined 2 months ago”. In my 2 months here, I have not managed to reach a hubber score of 90 or more. The best I had was 89 and at the time of writing this hub my hubber score is reading 83.
Hubber score does not really bother me and from what I have gathered from other hubbers, this should not be an issue so long as the score is above 75. That is not to say i don’t wish to have a hubber score of 100, I wish for that and I long for that day when i shall hit a hubber score of a cool 100 but in the mean time, i'm comfortable with my hubber score.
Here are my stats as on 07/26/2012
Duration on Hubpages
Total published hubs (including this one)
Total views on best performing hub
Highest day average page views on a single hub
Total views on worst performing hub
Average page views per day
Average page views per week
Average page views per month
Total page views ever
Days earned $1 and above
Total earnings from Ad program
Total earnings from eBay program
Total earnings from Amazon program
Total earnings from AdSense
NB: All the earnings above are from the month of June 2012 up to 07/25/2012. I got my AdSense account towards the end of May 2012 so prior to that i was not earning.
For those who would like to know if it is possible to get AdSense account Within a month for non-US citizens, I want to assure you that it is possible unless your country is among the restricted countries by Google.
By the time i got AdSense account i had written 14 hubs, so probably you also need to check on that as you should have enough content on your site before you apply for AdSense account.
Structured traffic sources as on 07/26/2012
Hubpages and my domain
Other Google organic
Hubs stats from "My account"
My next move is to write more of evergreen articles that will drive long lasting traffic and also apply use of article marketing to my hubs. A number of my good performing hubs are about London Olympics and I know it is just a matter of days before the traffic start falling on those particular hubs.
Probably I should check on how one can turn a spike article into an evergreen article if at all it is possible. I also want to learn more about Keyword research as I have not used keywords effectively in my hubs, may be that is why I have performed poorly on Amazon and AdSense earnings although I have used Amazon capsules on two hubs only.
About my progress on Hubpages, I want to be more active and contribute more by participation. One area I have not ventured fully is in forums mainly because I wanted to learn the loops and rules of being in the forums.
My plan is to be more active now and especially in forums. May be I should also take the 30 hubs in 30 days challenge and see how I will perform. Overall, I like it here on Hubpages and I’m really enjoying writing on Hubapges. Thanks my fellow hubbers and thanks Hubpages community.
Stats update (07/28/2012)
Two days after posting this hub, the best performing hub has sky-rocketed in views from a daily average of 163 views to 496 views. This particular hub is about London Olympics and I particularly noted this increase after the opening of Olympics games.
Daily page views from all hubs have increased from 612 to 1,539 and weekly page views moved from 3,077 to 5,142. This I can only attribute to the other hubs which are doing good as well.
