Hubs with many views

  1. Jackie Lynnley profile image89
    Jackie Lynnleyposted 4 years ago

    I have a hub about hairstyles for fat face and double chin and this is not to push it for it has over 19,000 views in a short time. I am just wondering why a hub of this type gets so many views but really has no bearing on your profile score or my writing talent? Writer Fox say it is no surprise it has so many views but that still doesn't make me understand and why it really makes no difference when one would think we would want them all that way? I just need help to understand this. Thanks!

      By profile score do you mean Hubber score?  The number on your profile picture?  This score is based on many things, including your other hubs which arn't as popular.

      And I wouldn't advertise in the forums which Hub is getting a ton of views, it will just encourage people to steal it.

        I just am curious for answers I never get:; someone (any of the over 19,000) could steal it.

          Hubs with a lot of views are targeted for theft not for content, but to boost another sites SEO.  I am closing the comments capsule for my hub this has happened to several times.  At least two times I have answered a comment that my intuition said mark as spam and discovered the hub had been stolen.

            Such a shame isn't it? Strange though I have never had anything stolen to my knowledge.

      It solves a problem for a lot of people, and there are not many other pages on this.  Seems clear to me why that would be a page with high traffic.

        Thanks; never really thought about it but I do a search on most of what I publish to make sure it is not really written about.

          She wanted to know why her Hubber Score isn't higher, not why the Hub gets so many views.

            HollieTposted 4 years agoin reply to this

            Really, I was under the impression that she was asking why her hubber score did not reflect the number of views (and thus popularity of the hub) , and none of us can really answer that question. We can only suggest why the hub is so popular.

    3. OldRoses profile image95
      OldRosesposted 4 years agoin reply to this

      I think you are confusing cause and effect.  The fact that you have one tremendously popular hub does not affect how your writing is scored.  My guess is that hub has lots of views because it is a popular topic: hairstyles.  I have one hub that is also popular.  It's about deer resistant plants which is a popular topic.

      Probably because searchers are looking for something of this type compared to Hubs which do not get too many views. This one must come up more often in searches using various more common keywords, and the others do not have keywords which are used in searches that often.

      Congratulations on so many views. I understand what you’re saying. Why isn't your profile going up if you have that many views? I have tried like many others to figure out Hubber scores, but don't have the answers.

    Jackie,
    You have proven a very good point by providing us with an excellent example.Considering the state of the world,I am more surprised that you didn't  get 190,000 views! Perhaps more pictures would bump up the views.Let's face it,the average person focuses on the superficial. For instance,I recently posted a 6,000+ word essay here concerning Real Estate and how it relates to modern slavery here in America. I wrote the article over the period of several months.However,I post such articles with the understanding that they will not be very popular or get many views.I also understand that many will not get past the first 1000 words.But I have other reasons for posting these types of articles besides popularity,and so I am not disappointed.

    I post all over the internet under several different pseudonyms,and I have made a decent amount of money over the years writing articles just as you have mentioned here.I have found through experience: the less you give these people the more they like it. You can't make them want to be better, or think about loftier ideas and purposes by writing great articles.Look at all the great writers that have came before us,and then consider what little impact they have had on the general populace.When I came to Hubpages, I made a decision "not" to make money here.Since I do that elsewhere, I post here what I really like to write about.

    People in general are vain,stupid,and ignorant, and please be careful not to mistake realism for arrogance. This is why fluff articles work so well for writers. It's the same reason Colonel Sanders and McDonalds got rich.My advice to you:  Don't worry about this great mystery of life amongst the unwashed masses. It sounds like you're doing great, so just keep doing what you're doing.Although there are times when It may be necessary to cast your pearls before swine,be sure and throw them something cheap and worthless too; this they will actually pay for.

      Actually I have never written for money anywhere and this is not the type I would say is my call in writing it is of interest; we are all vain. Lots of food for thought; thank you.

    Congrats on all the views. My beauty hubs bring in the most traffic, and although they are not my favorite, they seem to do well. Again, congrats.

      1. MelissaBarrett profile image59
        MelissaBarrettposted 4 years agoin reply to this

        The answer was already given. Traffic and QAP figures into hub score. Quality of writing, average QAP, traffic-maybe, involvement in the site, and possibly the alignment of the moon and stars on your birthday and your third grade math teacher's recommendations figures into hubber (profile) score.

        In short, your hubber (profile) score really doesn't matter all that much in the grand scheme of... well, anything... unless you are trying to build backlinks to other articles elsewhere on the web... so don't worry about it.

      Still...you get someone like Faith Reaper, who does very good hubs; obeys every rule she hears of (as I do)  and cannot get a 90 while others of like or less value may and many times do. We are simply trying to understand if it is prejudice for something we are talking about...or exactly what because we have confidence in our writing ability and following

    Hi Jackie.  I wish the scoring made sense. You are an excellent writer, and that article sounds like a winner. It gives us incentive to find subjects such as these that will get traffic. Congrats to you for pointing this out and for your increase in traffic.

      Thanks brakel2; I can see you have fallen under the same curse you might call it lol. You look to be a very good writer and I look forward to reading you now; so at least there is some benefit here.
