I thought I was doing well until I read the latest exhortation from HP staff to analyse my hubs. Evidently a hub is only thought to be doing well if it gets 100 ‘hits’ a day. Uh-oh! Is everyone else getting this number of views to a large number of hubs?
sort by best latest
Oh bless you, FFC, that really does put all of this pointless navel gazing into perspective … x
My three top performers were published in April, May and June, pretty much right after I started. I'm starting to see the traffic pick up on others now, however. Maybe they've aged enough to be shared by Google?
I had to go check when I read your comment. I think I had a longer "learning curve" as mine were from June, July, and August. The newer ones are way at the bottom (or buried deep, whatever).
I’m coming to rely on you for a lucid answer to things on HP and a clear explanation as to how things really might work here, Mark. You seem to cut through the HP hype and continual jollying exhortations that often make one feel like a failure.
Me too, Sherry ...
Interesting. I can understand if you don't want to divulge too much info on this, but do your apprenticeship hubs perform better than hubs where you came up with the topic yourself?
The AP only chooses your titles the first month. None of my 100+ view Hubs are from the AP. They're all Hubs that I've had up for several months.
It would be interesting to see if any of your hubs from the AP do out perform your other hubs in time, Georgie … it might be indicative of something.
Angie, one of the things that makes the AP so useful is that you learn things and can go back and reevaluate your older Hubs with the lessons you've learned. I've gotten a lot more traffic since I started working on older ones.
I have only one that does that well … all the rest lag well behind it, yet they are the ones formulated with all the gizmos HP recommends. And I know I do write well - ‘scuse my conceit (blushes).
I hope that's true, it makes me feel better. I have never had a hub get anywhere near 100 views a day, although I have had some get 100-200 views a month.
I have 5 hubs that get 100 -200+ views a month but only one that gets 100+ a day - about muesli of all things! It does not have all the gizmos HP insists a hub should have. So why is it consistently at the top? It just gives the info. .. that’s why.
Thank you for your input on this question, Stickypony.
Don’t worry, s&c … it’s early days yet for you on HP ;)
Put like that, yes … it is extremely unlikely : ) I suspect only a few of us have a large number of hubs that make 100 views per day … perhaps someone will now tell me I’m wrong and they have loads of hubs that regularly make 100 views a day
Yes, I would love to know if someone is this successful also. :)
I am following someone (whitney05) who has had over 10million views, but with about 1000 hubs. I guess it is impossible but I do not know how quickly those views are happening, or if she has that many getting 100/day.
Not for us mere mortals!
Interesting thought, paxwill … very interesting.
No, it doesn’t read like that. The piece says you need to check your stats to see which of your hubs get 100 hits a day … then you need to analyse that hub and replicate the way it is put together on your other hubs.
