    I just wanted to have a tiny celebration at having hit my first milestone, 1,000 page views...

    It took around 15 hubs, 8 days and a fair bit of promotion to get there, but I'm really pleased.

    I mainly shared on Google+ and Twitter and also answered questions on the forums here, HupHopped and commented on other's hubs and followed other interesting people. This seems to have paid off with other hubbers coming and checking out my work.

    Looking forward to continuing to be a member of this community, and thanks to all my fellow Hubbers for helping me get to 1,000 page views.

      Well done, it took me far longer than eight days to get 1,000 views. Nicely done!

      Congratulation for your first achievement. Even I hope commenting in other hub also some time help us to get some visitors to our hub.

        Sony, I'd say that's definitely the case; anything we can do to comment on other's hubs and encourage others can get them to look at our own work.

    I think it took me a month, and I had twice as many hubs, so your performance is great, really impressive!
    Keep on participating and writing we will all be looking forward to reading more of your work.

    Wait, how do you "share" on Google? I am fairly new to Hubpages. All this stuff about search results and stuff is kind of confusing to me. I started several months ago, but so far have only made 7 hubs. Maybe if I make more, I will have 1,000 pages views too!

  23. Paul Maplesden profile image76
    Paul Maplesdenposted 11 years ago

    Valene, I'm talking about Google+ (the social network). I've built up a good following there and I'm a moderator for a popular small business community, so I get good engagement, comments, shares and clickthroughs on my posts.

    If you want to find out more about Google+, there's lots of helpful hubs here and articles elsewhere online.

    Good luck!

    Congratulations, Paul! Can I ask - have you been able to see success in monetizing your site? Would love to hear your tips as I'm brand new to HubPages.

    1. Paul Maplesden profile image76
      Paul Maplesdenposted 11 years agoin reply to this


      Firstly, a warm welcome to HubPages.

      I'm off to a reasonable start with monetization and have made a few dollars since starting.  Monetization here is all about getting viewers to your site (since revenue is based on 'CPM' or 'Ad Revenue per Thousand Views'.)

      I've written a forum post about how writers can get more viewers in the early days, you can find it here: http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/108945

      I have also written a couple of hubs about how to interact with the community and also how to market your website or blog, both of which you might find helpful; they are linked from my profile.

      Hope this helps,
