The Top 100 Hubbers By Alexa Rank - July 2014

Updated on July 9, 2014



The Top Three

In my related hub The Top HubPages Writers With The Most Traffic - June 2014 I gave a list of the hubbers that receive the most traffic on HubPages by percentage. Additionally, since each Hub writer has a separate subdomain it is even possible to see the various Alexa traffic ranks that hubbers have. To find out this information I used’s list of top-ranked hubbers by traffic and entered the list into the SeoQuake tool which gives many different statistics – one of which is the individual Alexa ranks for all 114 hubbers that I examined. The main page, has an Alexa rank of 604 at present while is at 36281. Of course the smaller the number the better the hub traffic experienced at a given time. This time around anandkg22 is at the top of the list while regulars creativegenius and pattyinglishms are up there as well.

Other High Traffic Hubbers


Just Outside The Top 100

Just outside the top 100 are the following hubbers:

  1. 1262954
  2. 1275347
  3. 1299354
  4. 1321516
  5. 1434507
  6. 1471988
  7. 1482827
  8. 1559676
  9. 1730282
  10. 1839372
  11. 1887871
  12. 1987218

Some Observations

(1) Some of these hubbers have many, many hubs which link to each other therefore this gives them more traffic. Readers are able to go from one related article to the other by the same author.

(2) Some of these hubbers have a few thousand readers subscribed to their hubs. That augurs well for traffic, comments and overall engagement. It is often said that longer hubs are better for SEO purposes. Well, what about comments making a hub longer? Does it not have the same effect if not better?

(3) Those who have been on HubPages the longest are not necessarily the ones with the most traffic. Anandkg joined just in April of 2013 and is in the top spot currently! However, if you have been around long you would have had time to beef up your repertoire and your number of readers so pattyinglishms is greatly helped in that department having joined as early as 2007.

(4) Apart from tweeting and sharing their hub links on Facebook and Google+, several of the top hubbers have thousands of articles or links indexed by Bing. Many also have their own websites that bring them traffic.

(5) Your hubs do not have to have the best Google PageRank to be in this list. About twenty-one of the hubbers in this list have a “N/A” (Not Available) result for their HubPages subdomain. Eight of them have “0”s. Two have a PageRank of 1. None have a higher PageRank than 4 though in contrast to HubPages PageRank of 6.

Closing Thoughts

Just remember that these statistics vary from time to time so if you did not make the list this time all is not lost. I myself have not done much on HubPages as yet as in the past I spent most of my online writing time on Triond which experienced a great and unfortunate decline in the past year or two. Despite joining HubPages some years ago I have only recently decided to give HubPages a go and see how things turn out. Well hubbers, all the best with the writing!

    Some of them have only a few hubs but probably they are very good at seo or marketing or both. You can use Alexa to see which keywords are working for them.

    What I find interesting is that most of these I've never heard their names before.

    Hello @shelpeare, I had no idea I was in the top 100 until I read your Hub. Very refreshing. Thanks for the info, and I think I'll do some research myself.

    As for interlinking, I have stopped doing so since I noticed below most of my Hubs I usually already have a link to another related Hub under "Related Hubs". I stopped because I'm not sure how Google likes double links. Just to be safe.

    Thanks for the list, shelpeare. Great work. It must have been an awful amount of work, wasn't it?

    I was curious I was among them - and yes! Nr. 92. I just checked out my current ranking, that was increased to 804,528 instead of 1,069,051, due to mainly three Hubs that are running quite well.

    Well melbel I respect your opinions but I wrote on Triond for some years and interlinking sure helped me. Whenever I had an article getting a lot of traffic I linked my latest article to it and more often than not it passed on a great deal of traffic. It worked like clockwork once it was a related article. I think a writer has to establish a bond with his or her readers by showing concern, helping and becoming known for quality information. Once that is done his or her audience is sure.

    @ teaches12345, you're welcome. It is inspiring to me as well. I spent most of my writing life on Triond and I am only now turning my eyes to HubPages which I joined a few years ago but never published much here.

    1.) Interlinking has little to do with hubs giving traffic to each other (except in the case where the hub that I wrote that occasionally goes viral = it does give traffic to another hub I have linked within it.) Interlinking really just passes on SEO juice. Very little traffic passes from hub to hub, but it does happen. I wanna say like 1-5% depending on the hub.

    2.) Subscribers often don't really check in or comment. Many of my subscribers probably no longer use HubPages. I couldn't tell you who I'm subscribed to. It would be nice if all my subscribers read all my stuff and commented (hey, commenting on hubs helps with SEO), but I doubt that would happen.

    3.) It's about quality and how much work you put into something. If you joined HubPages 5 years ago and wrote one hub, I doubt you'll have as much traffic as someone who joined last fall and have written 20 high quality hubs. Quality. Quality. Quality.

    4.) I have my own website, but I don't maintain a relationship between my website ( and HubPages. Social media is really important which is why quality is the number one characteristic of successful content. If you don't write good content, you won't get shared.

    5.) Page rank is pretty deprecated at this point in the game.

    I hope you found my insights to be helpful.

    This is interesting. A few years ago, I ranked in the top 100. Not now. It is fun to see who does.
