How to Increase Your Page Views of Your Blog or Website?

Updated on January 16, 2017

Increasing the number of page views of your website, blog or Hub is a very important thing, especially when you are writing to make money. Even if you are not writing for money, then also you should try that the readers should read more and more articles at your Hub, blog etc.

Here I am giving some simple tricks that will increase the number of page views at you Hub.

Visitors and Page Views

The number of visits and the number of page views are two different things. When a surfer on net comes to your Hub through search engines or other sources, it is considered as a visit and counted as a single page view. When the visitor clicks on other internal links on your Hub and visit other pages, that are called as more page views. Thus if a visitor visits your site and for example clicks on 4 internal links, there are total 5 page views. If a visitor just visits you Hub, and go away from it without visiting other pages there, it is known as a bounce visit.

Increasing Your Page Views

Now if you want to increase the number of page views, you have to decrease the bounce rate. To decrease it, the visitors must hang around your hubs. This can be done easily by

1. Writing different Hubs on related subjects under same niche.

2. Linking related Hubs with one another.

Once you do this, the visitors will visit more than one Hub pages. It is like the display of books in book shops. A buyer would buy more books if they are displayed. And if the books are not displayed, the buyer will buy a book he wants and then quit the shop.

Internal Linking Examples

There are many ways to link pages. Please read a detailed Hub on it at How to Link Your Hubs. Here I am giving one of the ways to link the pages.

One of my favorite subjects of writing is philately. Under this niche, I have written 7 Hubs so far. Here is the list of the Hubs related to philately.

Mahatma Gandhi Stamps

Albert Einstein Stamps

Mother Teresa Stamps

First Mahatma Gandhi Stamps India 1948

Famous Jains on Postal Stamps

Apollo 11 Mission Postage Stamps

Now click on the first Hub Collecting Stamps: My School Days Hobby. You will find that I have linked 4 related Hubs to it at the end. (See the image below)

Now, if someone searching for articles on Collecting Stamps and lands on my Collecting Stamps: My School Days Hobby HUb, he will see the links to other related Hubs at the end of this Hub. It is most likely that he will click on the links to visit the related Hubs. Thus, the number of page views will increase.

Now suppose the visitor clicks on the link Mahatma Gandhi stamp and visits that Hub there also he will find links to other related Hubs. (See the image below). Here too I have linked some Hubs on philately, but there is one Hub that is not about philately, but Jainism, another niche. I have linked it because it is about Gandhi. Here, the visitor may go to another group of topics at my Hubpages.

    Very useful and helpful hub. I haven't used the links capsule yet but I have used the Hub Settings to create a Hub Group for my hubs. I'll have to see about using the links capsule sometime soon.

    Thanks for sharing your ideas about linking to one another. Yes, grouping really helps to find other related hubs.

    Be careful about one thing. I added links to all my hubs and got into trouble with one because the links were not related to the hub's content. So take care to have at least something related to the story.

    Millionaire Tips, I have grouped the Hubs. Every group has Hubs related to one niche. So generally the liking is within the group. So it is easy to check the linking by checking the group hubs.

    Great question by Millionaire Tips! I'm trying to decide if I should start keeping track of my linking plan.

    This is a great idea. Voted up. Do you keep track of which hubs are linked to other hubs to make sure none of them are missed?
