I love reading hubs, my fav writers are those who have left comments on my page! Actually awfulpoet is one of my fav.'s but sometimes I wonder how many people that are reading my page are from Hubpages, and how many are actually from outside sources? Is there a way to know?
I do-- not a lot, but I do read some. In fact I recently read one of yours and commented.
I do not read as many other writers articles within our community here, as I could, as well as should. But I realize that the majority of those who pen articles, like to receive comments, or feedback. You could say its good moral support, so to speak, to let others know you appreciate their work.
In other words, a little pat on the back so often can go al long way! But it's good to have an equal balance of newly written articles , as well as commenting on other fellow writers hubs. And if you click on stats, on each of your own articles. This in turn will give you a rough idea of who is viewing those articles, including those searching through google.
Your traffic source on your stats page and stats for individual hubs can tell you whether or not your traffic is internal or from outside sources. The page views you get for the first 48 hours after publishing are usually internal (HP traffic).
Most hubbers read other hubbers' works.
Yes, I read a lot of hubs.
Go to your account page (you can get there from upper right corner, drop down menu from your user name); to the left is "traffic sources"; click on that, you see where you're traffic is coming from.
I get a lot of traffic from HP. Quite a bit from Google too. And a little from other places: Bing, etc.
I do read many of the hubbers that I follow. If I had time I would read more.
There is a way to see who is reading your material and from where. If you will click on My Account under your name at the top right of your screen, and then click Traffic Sources on the left side of your page under the table that starts with statistics, Hubpages has given you a place to find out where all of your traffic is coming from.
I hope this helps!
I spent a few days reading hubs before joining there are a lot of good writers out there.
Google analytics can tell you which views originated from hubpages.com. It's not definitive, since non-members could come to hubpages first and then view your pages, but it's still some data for consideration.
Yes i read a lot of other people's hubs. I rate the ones that keep me engaged long enough to get to the end, but i don't generally comment.
I enjoy reading hubs and go through quite a number of hubs each day, although I generally do not comment, I do rate the hubs I read I would say I am addicted to reading and probably go through about 50 hubs a day on average.
Yes, I enjoy reading the articles. I think it's important to support those ppl who are supporting you as well, and I try to remember to leave a comment when ever I can.
I really like recipes, especially around dinner time when I cant think of anything to make.
Hubs are important and I love reading them, yes. We are a community of writers after all. Now if we could get more from outside hubs to come I here and read, that would be awesome.
If I find a Hub on my feed interesting, I read it. I mostly check out recipes and SEO/Social Media related hubs.
You can tell via your stats. If you look at traffic sources, it gives you an idea of where views have come from. If they come from a particular Hubber, a link to that profile will appear on the traffic source list. I'f you are interested in a specific hub, click into it, and at the top of the hub you will see STATS... Click this, and alter the time frames for a specific indication relevant to that hub.
I think most of the views come from other hubbers. Hubs are well presented to us but except some popular hubs they are poorly rated by search engines.
I'm new here but from what I've seen most hub views are from hubbers. Usually hubpages results aren't on the first or second page of google unless the title is typed word for word in the search bar
Sure, I read a hub or two (and sometimes more) every week. As for my hubs, I see a mix of traffic from hubpages and from search engines.
I read a lot of hubs, mostly short stories and poetry, and I like leaving comments because I believe encouragement is essential to the mindset of an artist.
I hate typing...but I love reading,so I tend to read,rate,and move on.I comment only when the hub pulls it out of me...and yes,I read a ton of hubs.
We have some refined writers here.We also have some crappy writers,or as I like to call it...Mink and Manure.Admire the Mink,hold your nose through the Manure...And appreciate an effort regardless.
I would consider it a requirement. In order to be a good writer (according to Robert Bly on Freelance Writing) half of your time is spent reading other people's works in order to improve your own.
I try to make a point of reading a few hubs a day. There are a few hubbers I follow, like billybuc and then I like to hub hop to discover new writers. I'm here for the writing and reading. I love the community aspect of HubPages, so there has to be some give and take.
I get far more traffic from search engines than I get from other hubbers, but I enjoy getting comments and feedback - and outsiders rarely leave comments.
Because I live off the grid and don't like to waste precious solar power on television, I sit down most nights after my family has gone to bed and read a bunch of hubs. I really enjoy a good hub and never hesitate to leave a comment. I also try to encourage new writers who show promise.
The way I find new hubbers to read and follow is generally by clicking on the profile page of other hubbers who leave comments on whichever hub I happen to be reading at the time. If I admire a comment, I click to open their profile page in a separate tab and see what the hubber has written about. I'm happy to view, vote and follow anyone who writes well because I think their positive contribution to the value of HP should be rewarded.
Having said that, I understand that many hubbers lead busier lives than I do these days. Not everyone has the time to read. If you do read, however, I think it is important to vote.
Perhaps my greatest motivation for taking the time to encourage other hubbers comes from decades of being a professional writer. I can still remember what it was like before I was a published author and before I was paid a mountain of money to write for film and television. Feedback is very important when you are starting out.
I'm quietly confident there are quite a few hubbers who could make a living out of writing if they gained the confidence to give it a try. I'd like them to have as interesting a life as I have had.
If I can encourage a few would-be professional writers in the way a few special people encouraged me in my early years, that's a good thing.
I'll keep reading and commenting as long as my solar batteries allow. In my winter time, you'll probably see a lot less of me!
I am developing a steady habit of reading and commenting on 5 hubs per day (outside of my volunteer work as a HubGreeter, where I aim to do 3 per day). I change up my methods of finding hubs - I search topics, I type in searches, I follow my feed, I check in on hubbers I follow, I go to the Apprentice Alumni forum, I look at my own followers.
Sometimes, I want to focus on a topic that I write about. Other times, I go for viewing photos or reading poetry for inspiration. Other times, I look for things I've never heard about.
Reading the work of other hubbers is, in short, a great way to keep growing. And I know how encouraged I am when someone comments on a hub (emotionally, it's a great boost), so I do unto others as I would be done to!
I love the community here, and I love reading other people's Hubs. In fact I spend far too much time reading other Hubs when I should be doing my work.
Most definitely, I read hubs of fellow hubbers and leave comments 98% of the time. If I don't, it's because I'm either rushing, or thought it was not up to standard. I read hubs randomly from the hubfeed or by cruising through the Topic section. I also do the hub hopper. I also read my followers and those I'm following when I have the time.
I do. Quite a lot too. But I dont always post a comment because am not always sure I have something to say. But I guess one way to know where your readers are coming from is through comments.
I tend not to. Because I'm not particularly interested in recipes or dog-walking tips or what celebrities are up to.
It's definitely a good idea to read and comment on hubs written by those hubbers that follow you and read your work. This way they will remember you and keep returning to your hubs. Sometimes though time doesn't allow for doing that on a regular basis. Also, one can't possibly read and comment on hubs by every hubber follower, especially if that # is in hundreds.
It is possible to find out how much traffic comes from HubPages and how much of it comes from other sources but I don't think you can get information that is 100% accurate and for each hub at that.
I read hubs almost everyday. I may catch one on the feed or from my daily notification list. I don't care who the author is, if it interests me, I'll read it and most often vote up. There are so many amazing writers on HP with fascinating hubs.

I was wondering if anyone would consider taking the time to stroll through my hubs and read a few? I would love more feedback, and I think it would help me get to know other hubpage authors. Thanks!
