Your cherished goal

    We all must have some goals while engaged in hubbing.  My most cherished goal is to hit 1 Million (traffic, not earnings!) . What about you? Please share your dreams or goals related to HubPage writing.

      To eliminate the hubber score.

    My goal was to hit 1 million page views before I had been on this site for 2 years.
    I didn´t make it.
    Now I am without goals. Does anyone want to loan me one?

      Help me destroy the hubber score?

        But mine is usually 100 or, on slow days, 99.
        (I know, this sounds like one of those apologist Bubblers: I always get paid, so the system is working just fine.)

            I´m crushed, as my virtual relationships are very important to me.

    I don't really have a goal with traffic yet. I just like to see it climb. I have a ways to go before I can even say I'm close to a quarter million. I also would love to have 100 hubs but that's far off, too. A goal I do look forward to is getting a payout of $50 or more every month. I actually think that's more attainable than 250,000 views or 100 hubs.

    I have 2 goals. 
    1.  Learn how to write better titles to hubs.
    2.  To understand how to use google keyword tool.

    If anyone would like to volunteer to help me with one or both of my goals, well, here I am.  Yes, I've been to the learning center smile

      Your titles look great. I just ran a few of them through google.br (Brasil) and they are all at the top of the SERPS, or close to it. If you have any complaints with traffic I think it is because the keywords you have chosen are not searched for enough.
      The only solution to this problem is to write more hubs. Even if your hubs only average 10 page views per day, if you have more you will have a higher total. Look at PattyInglish, for example. She has over 2000 hubs. I do not know what her page views/day looks like, but I would assume about 20,000. She has the 10,000,000 accolade.

        You don't need over 2000 Hubs to get 20,000 pageviews per day.  Nor do you need 20,000 per day to get the 10 million accolade.

        Remember, only about 20% of any anthor's Hubs are the genuine traffic hotspots and moneymakers.

          DrMark1961posted 3 years ago in reply to this

          Good point.
          In order to make the 10,000,000 accolade at 5 years, assuming the 1,000,000 accolade at 2 years, you need an average of 8450 page views per day.
          Yes, you can get that with fewer articles, based on that 20% rule, but how do you figure out before you publish which are going to be successful? Everytime I publish I think "this is going to be one of my best performers" (except maybe my last one, on parrots, which I know almost no one is going to want to read).
          I dont think you can predict. Therefore, for a person like vocalcoach, whose published hubs are already at the top of the SERPs and getting as much traffic as possible for that particular keyword, the only solution (to get more traffic) is to write more hubs.
          You have been successful with fewer hubs, but I think the subjects you have chosen have more page views/day. For the majority of us, I think writing more high quality hubs is the best strategy.

            Your equation presumes steady/flat traffic/growth.  80% of every Hub that's ever been made is unpublished/gone (good luck trying to dodge Pareto's Principle).  Our user base is now almost 300% smaller than it was at it's peak in early 2012.  (I keep awesome stats, the graph I'm referencing is up on my HubPages Insider Hub.)  Websites and traffic change a LOT over time.

            My belief is you don't try and predict or pre-guess your best performers.  You watch for them, learn from them and do more of what they are doing.  This is why a 30 Hubs in 30 days challenge to me means that whole batch will have the same strengths and weaknesses in regards to how they were built. 

            I'm pretty sure everyone who has the 10 million views accolade currently has been on the site since about 2007 and was here during the 2009-2012 run of site growth.  Those numbers are going to be hard to duplicate given how much the entire nature of content writing has changed and continues to change.

              Relache:

              So, given what you said here, what do you think would happen if a writer simply kept his high earners and deleted the others?

  5. lyns profile image70

    1. To become the best writer  I can
    2. To put a smile on others faces I meet here.
    3. To understand how the hubpages operate more clearly.

    to hit a hub score of 95 and above; probably, that's my goal for now...

      sunilkunnoth2012posted 3 years ago in reply to this

      Now that is the toughest goal since they have tightened the evaluation process. I had even scored upto 98 and it came down to 80 now. Anyhow best of luck.

        Barack Jamesposted 3 years ago in reply to this

        I don't think a score of 80 or above is that bad; what matters is traffic/views that you get... I suppose!

    Publish 100 hubs before the year ends and at least 1000 in total.

    All my Google traffic are gone. Can someone tell me how to get 3000 views per day from search engines preferably Google, yahoo and bing?

    Melissa Noonposted 3 years ago

    For now I can only speak for December, I would love to have 7,000 (total) and have over 64  or more hubs. I would also hope that before that month I can be approved for the adsense which I keep getting rejected for right now. Then after December I will make more goals for myself.

      Fine. Keep on working, your goals will be achieved. All the best.
