Hitting 50,000 views inside 4 months on Hubpages: Stats, earnings and more

Updated on March 3, 2013

Checking on my profile today (25/09/2012), it is now four months since I joined Hubpages. The journey here on Hubpages so far has been sort of a roller-coaster with raise and drop on traffic, earnings and other statistics but what I like most is the robustness of the Hubpages platform.

A word to would be Hubbers or very new Hubbers is that, when I joined Hubpages, I had no prior knowledge in online writing or being a freelance writer. Certainly, my skills in writing have improved but still I feel I have a long way to go. Hubpages is such a wonderful platform for online writing and the community is very helpful especially to beginner Hubbers.

When I hit 10,000 views mark about two months ago, I was elated to receive a beautiful Hubpages 10k accolade for my achievement. This time though I don’t expect to receive any accolade or badge, the reason being Hubpages does not have an accolade for 50k views. Nevertheless, accolade or no accolade, I feel delighted to have achieved this milestone.

I had actually projected to reach the 50,000 views mark in 3 months and I was on target until the beginning of September, 2012 when traffic started falling, I think the drop in traffic hit everyone on Hubpages. Forums attributed this to some Google algorithms updates and migration to the new profile page. Hubpages also introduced the “Idle” and “Featured” statuses around this period that affected the way hubs are indexed on search engines.

These changes affected the average 1,500 daily views I enjoyed as traffic dropped significantly to hit an average low of 300 daily views. Although traffic has been rising steadily lately (now at an average of 700 daily views as of today 25/09/2012), am still yet to reach the level I was before these changes. Consequently, earning also dropped from an average of $2.5 to $0.8 but it is now averaging at $1per day. Here are my stats and figures on reaching 50,000 views mark.

What is working for me and for now?

On my short experience here I have noted that there are some continuous activities that a Hubber must do to maintain and improve the performance of hubs. Some of these activities are obvious and you might have heard of them but let us see;

  • Reading other Hubbers work, commenting and sharing

Reading other Hubbers articles, commenting and sharing occasionally not only establishes your presence on Hubpages but it also increase hubs traffic and visibility.

Reading other Hubbers work and commenting or sharing may sound like a daunting task but the overall benefits are worthy. Sharing hubs regularly on social media and other sites is also important.

Sites such as Digg, RedGage, Stumbleupon, Facebook, Twitter, Google+, eHow, Pinterest, Blinklist, Reddit, Chime.in, Delicious, Flipora and others are worthy checking. The caution is, do not spam. Submitting your hubs RSS to major search engines like Google, Yahoo search and Bing improves page ranking while having a blog can complement traffic to your hubs.

  • Publishing hubs regularly

Writing articles and publishing them regularly is not easy especially if you have a full-time job. It needs passion and dedication. I have found that the more you stick to your plan of writing, the more it become easy writing hubs and publishing them.

My goal when I started was to publish at least one hub every two days. Well, I have maintained this goal and I hope to keep it until that time when I shall be able to publish a hub every day.

  • Use of Keywords

Keywords research needs a lot of experience in usage and it takes time to master but once you get used, the gains are noteworthy. I have found use of keywords is one of the best SEO (Search Engine Optimization) strategies that can significantly improve hubs ranking on search engines, traffic and consequently, earnings. Hubs should be search engines friendly and keywords play a vital role in this.

When I published my 50th hub, one of my next goals was to make use of keywords in my hubs and although am still on trial and error stage, I have seen some progress on traffic. I have also learnt that, use of proper keywords in the hub title, introduction, body and summary is very important. These keywords can also make up the hub tags. The caution again is, do not stuff your hubs with keywords.

Use keywords in the hub title, introduction, body and summary.

  • Hub word count and hub editing

Short hubs are not preferred on Hubpages or by search engines. I have tried much making word count in most of my hubs to be between 600-1200 words. It has not been easy and my trick has been to first do a research of what I want to write about especially on topics that are outside my context.

Editing hubs and making them fresh is another aspect that I have discovered to really improve performance of hubs.

Ever since Hubpages introduced the “Idle” status, it has become very important to edit hubs and make them fresh to be featured and indexed on search engines.

  • Proper use of Hubtools

Use of hub capsules will determine the final layout of your hub to readers. Proper use of these capsules is recommended as it determines how appealing will your hubs be to the eyes of readers.

Use of different capsules such as text, photo, link, video, poll, table etc. is useful. It makes the hub to look rich in media, appealing and engaging.

On my experience, I have found that starting the hub with a text capsule with one or two paragraphs and nothing else is very important in placing the Google Ads at the top of the hub. This not only improves ads visibility in your hubs and increase the chances of that ad being clicked but Google also like it when its ads are strategically positioned.

  • Writing on a niche

Writing articles around one topic is another strategy that I have been trying to implement among my articles. Although I have not yet developed a complete niche, I have a series of about 45 articles that are written around a single topic. These hubs about Java programming have been a good niche test for me. The articles attract a daily traffic of 10-100 views each and so I can ascertain that writing on a niche works.

Off course, there are many ways that can be used to enhance the performance of hubs than what I have outlined here. I would say the best way to learn about these strategies is through reading what other hubbers have researched, experimented and written about. Another way, though it can be tasking, is to learn through experience because some strategies might work for some but not all.

On reaching the 50,000 views mark, I would like to thank Hubpages for giving me a chance to learn how to be an online writer and publisher. To the Hubpages wonderful community and fellow Hubbers, thank you so much for your support and inspiration. I wish you the best.

      Wow! All I can say is congratulations my friend. 50,000 viws in 4 months is just so impressive. You are A-MAZ-ING. I've tried the Flipora thing but it hasn't worked for me. Be proud and keep up the good work. You are a credit to Hubpages and Africa. Voted up and shared everywhere. Baadaye.

      Dr Mark 4 years ago from The Beach of Brazil

      Really interesting. The Flipora account was a great tip. It is still not producing much but some days it is significant. I see your hubs there more often, as I guess you have posted them on there longer.(Reddit was a real waste of time and the Flipora looks like it is even going to pass up Stumbleupon on my traffic sources, eventually.)

      My Pinterest account is rated much higher. Do you think yours would be better if you were publishing more interesting images? Maybe the Java articles are not going to draw many views from Pinterest; I have no idea but thought I would make the suggestion.

      All of these numbers are a big help. Are you sure they are not a violation of Hubpages terms of service? Your hubs are very helpful to a lot of people so please go over the TOS so they do not end up banning you.

      Thank you for being so transparent. I agree with everything you mention here, especially about reading hubs of other hubbers. I mean, if we want people to read our hubs, then we should read their hubs, too. Fortunately, we have a lot of good writers here at HubPages, so that is an enjoyable task for me. I have learned a lot from reading your hubs. Congratulations on your success. I look forward to continually learning through you.

      Hi DrMark1961,

      Am happy to hear that Flipora is slow but working for you, keep on trying and I wish you the best. As you have noted, my hubs do not have much interesting images or photos and probably that explains why my hubs have not gained much from Pinterest but I will keep on trying. As for Hubpages TOS, am going there right away to check if am missing something. Thanks for the concern. I do appreciate you stopping here, reading and commenting.

      Congratulations. Well Done! Your inspiring words and tips mean a lot to me. I'm still working hard (struggling, a little) to achieve a measure of success that makes me happy. You have given me some very valuable points and ideas for increasing hub views. I will try them and let you know. One question: what do you mean by submitting my hubs RSS to search engines? I may not be doing this. It seems important.

      Thanks again. I wish you much success in the future. Marilyn. Maralexa

      Hi Maralexa,

      Thanks for stopping here, reading and commeting, am glad that you found this article to be useful. An RSS (Really Simple Syndication) is a web channel that is used for web contents that are regularly updated. The feed keep on searching for newly added or updated content on a site.

      Every hubber can create RSS feed for his/her articles which can be submitted to RSS submission sites to let them know when you publish a new hub. This can increase the performance of your hubs and traffic too.

      Read this article, credit to Humagaia, on how to Create Hubpages RSS Feed: https://hubpages.com/community/RSS-Feeds-Creating-...

      I am absolutely amazed at what I don't know or have forgotten since starting with HubPages. I appreciate your answering my question so quickly. I will read both articles immediately.

      As a result of having this question (and feeling pretty stupid for having it) I have returned to the HubPages Learning Center. Between your help and HubPages Learning Center I hope to get this important issue handled.

      dwachira, You are suggesting using a text capsule at the beginning to allow good placement for Google ads. I've noted that some writers suggest putting images near the top to grab reader interest. Is this a trade-off, where the writer must decide on priority placement for ads, or keeping the reader's interest to continue the article? I may be missing something and will appreciate comment. Thanks.

Your advice is also very sound for new and experienced writers. It actually reminded me that I should go back and review some hubs ... I've been too focused on new content recently. Think I'll finish off the pending hubs and start editing ...

      Congrats! As you pointed out, it always helps to have a niche. When I started on hubpages, I wrote about everything. Didn't get much traffic. Now, that I'm zeroing in on a niche, I've noticed a difference.

      Thanks for sharing your stats. It's really encouraging. Voted up and useful. Definitely sharing!

      dwachira,

      Let me begin by saying that I am very happy to have you as a follower. You have done very well in getting 50,000 views in less than 4 months, and your earnings are considerably more than mine. I've been on HP for about 20 months and am only now coming up to around 75,000 views. You have very good tips and I have been trying to follow all of them. Writing excellent content and marketing it in the best way are the keys to being successful on Hubpages. Voted up and sharing with followers, on Pinterest and Facebook.

      Well done and a great achievment. I have been on hubpages for almost 4 years and i have been following the same set of ideas that you have posted in your hub now for the past few months. My hits have greatly improved i now have over 200,000 hit and an average of 25,ooo per month and 1,200 per day. Voted up and shared!!

      Hi Dwachira, Fantastic and informative post. I am still a 'newbie' although i've been writing for years. I am enjoying hubpages, but i'm struggling with getting views etc on my page. I won't give up, and will have to start learning SEO, keyword and niche content. Thanks for posting. Blessings.

      Congrats on your milestone, I do hope I can reach that someday! I am 10 views away from 7,000 hubviews and today is the second day of my 6th week here. I'm not sure if that is a good thing or not to be honest. I definitely think I will use some of these suggestions now that I am approved by Adsense just 2 days ago. I've averaged over these past two days $.34 and $.21. Is this mediocre from your experience? I'd like to earn more.

      Hi Neinahpets,

      With that amount of views in just over five weeks, i must say you are right and over the track and the earnings are also on the right track, that shows you must be getting quality traffic. Keep it up and congrats on being AdSense approved. I wish you more better days, thanks for the visit and comment.
