My Second Month at Hubpages
I was not nearly as prolific in writing in my second month as my first - I managed to do more than 30 hubs in 30 days in my first month, but have only published 20 hubs in July. I spent more time reading two to three hubs of other hubbers to try and gain readership which was to improve my traffic.
I got nominated for two more hubnuggests, one for Peak Oil Further Reading, and the other for How I Raise my Hubscore. The latter of the two received a lot of comments and views and may be evergreen enough to continue to get a lot of traffic for months to come. For both hubs I won a hugnugget award.
My accolade counts have gone up, as to be expected:
- Published 10 hubs
- Have 100 followers
- My hubs have been read 1000 times
- My Questions have spawned 100 answers
- I have answered 100 questions
- Level 6 commenter, leaving insightful and engaging comments
- Popular among readers, as measured by feedback to their hubs
- Starts great discussions in the comments
- Contributes to the community by helping our new users in the Forums, voting and/or flagging inappropriate content for our moderators.
Writes engaging hubs which visitors love to read end to end
In terms of traffic and revenue, this month I've had 2185 pageviews, 490 HubAd Impressions, $1.79 of HubAd revenue, 1149 Adsense views and 2 clicks giving me $4.11 for a total of $5.78.
For all time I have had 3111 pageviews, 622 HubAd impressions, $2.30 of HubAd revenue, 1270 Adsense views and 2 clicks giving me $4.11 for a total of $6.41.
It would be really great if I could get a few more clicks on my adsense ads, however, the hubs I tend to write are not particularly commercial and I haven't as of yet really searched on keywords that could potentially be high click-through generators. Perhaps in August I will give this an attempt to see if I can get at least one hub that gives me adsense producing traffic.
Other hubs I created in July that generated some really good traffic were the How I get my Hub Ideas, including part 1, part 2 and part 3. These are stream of consciousness written and it came out of me at high speed practically all at once and was fun to write.
My first Peripheral Man story did not get hardly any attention, but that won't stop me from writing the others I already have planned. I like the idea of writing a small short story about one or two key characters and then at the last minute, Peripheral Man comes out of the woodwork to help them out.
And finally I have started a new group that is related to having children, this group now has The Importance of Chess for Children, One on One with Children Tradition and How to stop "Are We There Yet?" questions on a long road trip. If you have kids, you may want to give these three a read.
