Which source is better for traffic- Google or HubPages?

    I have almost 100 percent traffic from Google and no reasonable traffic from HubPages!   Which one is better? What about your traffic?

      That is an excellent result. In fact, ANY traffic is an excellent result, but Hubpages traffic tends to vanish after a long time, because hubs travel further down the list of topics, whereas Google traffic should grow. So I wouldn't worry, just keep doing what you're doing wink

      The active HubPages community is quite small, so you will not get much traffic from it.  Certainly not enough to make any money from.   It's great that you're getting Google traffic, that's exactly what you want.

      Getting approved for Adsense will just take a little patience.   When your oldest Hub is six months old, try again.

    Thanks Suzanne Day for your comments! But I have been rejected by Google AdSense again and again in spite of the fact that I am having 100 percent traffic from Google. What do you think?

      Adsense is not the search engine, and has little connection with it. 

      At the end of the day, if you want traffic, google is the place to find it, with billions using the search engine.  Not the minuscule number of hubbers that read hubs.

        Thanks Wilderness, I got it. It means I am doing well.

    This is a content site, you want search engine traffic.

    All Adsense looks at is whether you have a sufficient amount of appropriate content, and the content is old enough given your geographical area.

    Your oldest content seems to be about 4 months old.  It needs to be 6 months old.

      Thanks Psych for your reply! It means I am doing well and I should create hubs that are search friendly.

    Depends how you look at your traffic... If you are looking at the stats here on HP I get a large number of views from hubpages itself.

    The reason that it shows like that is because I will get a search from google and they will then click a link within my hub to look at another of my hubs; many of my visitors will read more than one hub and when they click a link it shows HP as the source not google...

    Interlinking related hubs will generate many additional views within your account.
