I initially thought there should be an accolade for 5,000 views. Just starting out, I thought it took a long time to just get to 1,000. Now that I have been here longer, have written more Hubs and am seeing an increase in traffic from Google, I am now seeing up to 2,000 views per month. Not a lot, but showing slow, but steady improvement.
It seems that HubPages knew what they were doing with the 50 Hub, 10,000 view accolades. After 7+ months I am approaching these standards and I feel I am just starting to get rolling. 50/10,000 seem to be the critical mass to begin to see success on HPs. Revenue is slowly, but surely, coming with it.
