    This is from starting with two Hubs in May, 2013, and building up to 54 Hubs.  Actually, I reached one million views on October 1st but, like so many others have reported, every subsequent stats update from then deducted numbers from my total views.  I reached this milestone again on Monday.  I guess the total view numbers will stick this time because I got the accolade.  Hooray!

      Writer Fox . . .Congratulaions to you. I believe that you deserve a huge pat on the back for this major accomplishment. I am proud of you too.

      This does not surprise me, and certainly is well deserved.  What does surprise me is that you were able to accomplish this in the midst of the crisis that has affected so many here and has virtually ruined so many other good writers.

      You obviously know what you are doing here, and frankly, I am happy to see that someone is succeeding in the light of the hit HP and many here, including me, have taken.

      Oh, if only I knew what you know! 

      Big, Big congratulations and hugs and best wishes for continued success.

    Congratulations, Writer Fox.
    Have your numbers caught up to where they should be? Mine went down 7000 the other day and then started moving ahead normally; those lost views were never replaced.
    I saw you mention the EC on another thread today but did not have a chance to answer. I have quite a few of those but cannot give you a clear indication of how they are doing. Some of my best performers are EC, as are some of the slowest.
    I would prefer that my newest hubs NOT enter the EC program, but if I do so my older hubs that are performing so well will also have to leave the program. What do you suggest?

    Thank you for the compliments Sally, Paradigm, Sanjay, David (Dwelburn), Alicia, CrisSp, Manasi, Audrey (Brake12), Billie, Stacie, Flourish, Stephen (DressageHusband), Nancy, Karina, Susie (Colorfulone), Rebekha, Kenneth,  Mario (Buildreps), Susan, TimeTraveler2 (מועדים לשמחה), Thelma, Aesta1, Phyllis, Theresa (FaithReaper), Barbara, Jan, Glenda, Tanya (Arachnea), Kathryn, Rubie, Maggie, Erin, and Chauncy. 

    I hope to read your latest Hubs soon.  (I'm in the final week of a national three-week holiday time and have been a little busy having a great time.)

    @ Pattyinglishms: Kudos are in order for you because I know you hit 10 million views in January, 2012, and I can only imagine how many views you have now!

    @ DrMark1961: I lost 'Total Views Ever' as well, and they were never added back – about 15,000!  Here's the explanation I got from HP: http://goo.gl/liFXIJ   When I was nearing the million-view mark, it was rather like chasing a moving target. Of course, my main concern is that the ad impressions are accurate. As for EC Hubs, I opted out.  Unfortunately you can't pick and choose which Hubs you want to be eligible because it's an all-or-nothing option. If you don't want your new Hubs in the program, you'll need to bite the bullet and opt out now. Your present EC's will have their URLs changed back to your subdomain (which can happen anyway!).  It's been more than a year for the EC experiment and changes in site navigation and I haven't seen any specific statistics provided by HP on traffic numbers.  I just presume that if the statistics were good, that they would be forthcoming.

    Thanks for that reply, Writer Fox. I read the link but am still upset at those lost numbers. The income did not seem to be affected, but as you well know we all have different reasons for being here.
    As far as the EC hubs go, I guess there is no time like the present. My page views are down a little already so I went ahead and opted out now so that my veterinary medical hubs would go back to my subdomain and not be lost in the HP domain.
    Anyway, congrats again and thanks for your great advice!

    @Ologsinquito: Congrats on your twin subdomain. I'll notice that #2 from now on.

    @Earner: Of course you can make 10¢ a view here.  All you need is just a CPM of about $1,700. cool

    @Dr. Mark: Thanks again, and I think you made the right decision.  By the way, I need to ask you something.  Are you a native English speaker?  If you are, would you please go here are correct my comment about you:
