Well, not just today! I wish. But, today I will pass the 2,000,000 views milestone. It took awhile - helped by some popular hubs and hindered by the one that wants a good kicking as it's only had 34 views in the last 3 years!
Website traffic really is an 80/20 situation, with 20% of hubs producing consistent long-term results and 80% being duds. It'd be nice to have a crystal ball to be able to spot the duds before I write them though!
So - 2,000,000 sets of eyeballs have been exposed to my genius since I joined.
I need cake.....
I likewise consider views a very big deal.
Basically, you have communicated with and contributed to the well-being of over 2,000,000 minds.
If that isn't a contribution to society, then I don't know what is.
(oops, didn't mean to yell)
Congrats! I am so envious. Enjoy the cake...you deserve it!
Congrats on that. Not many people get that many views. And, yes, I'm burning that 80/20 principle into my brain cells at this point. In a way, it's encouraging.
I went to your profile page and read few of your titles. It felt like being at the flea market, where I could find everything I wanted. You deserve your success. And by the way, you must have been one of the few hubbers who didn't get nipped by the Google Pandas and Penguins. Congrats.
Wow! Have your cake and eat it too! Congratulations. That is just awesome.
Congrats! Please tell us, how many views do you have in a normal day?
There are several answers, I am not sure if I am allowed to be specific and remain within the site TOS, so I will only say:
1] Not as many as my genius deserves
2] Not as many as I used to get in previous years
3] I did see a traffic dip in 2011-2012, but some has returned.
Ok, Earner, I understand. It's great that things are getting better after the Google updates from a few years ago.
I wonder if they had an accolade with 2,000,000. So far the biggest I saw was 1 million.
Congratulations! I love to hear about these milestones!
Regarding the accolades - it's been suggested before that HP develop additional ones at shorter increments. It's a long wait between the 100,000 views accolade and the 1 Million mark, and even a longer wait to get to the multi-million-view accolades.
It would probably take some programming tweaks that might not be the biggest priorities just now, but if there's a way to create new plateaus someday, I think many of us would appreciate having those little signs of success on our profiles.
I believe, from memory, that my accolades are hidden, so it's neither here nor there.
At some time in the past, I believe, it was thought that those with most/highest accolades were having more/all of their hubs stolen. The option to hide them was put in place - and, I think, I hid mine. Can't swear to it as I don't take notice of badges etc to be honest.
I wonder if the hub thieves out there are now going to use the "editors choice" badge at the bottom of photo to decide which hubs to steal.
Congrats! That's almost as big as the one million mark; you did it once and now know it wasn't a fluke. You have done it twice!
I should be joining you there in a few months - if you'll wait we can share the cake.
This cake will be stale. We'll need a new one by then. New cakes every day - it's the law you know.
You've only been here half the time, Wilderness, so you're doing well!
At one time last year I thought I was going to hit the 2 million mark but I've been nothing with my HubPages account for months and the numbers have really slowed to a crawl. Might get it this year, though.
earner, that's marvelous. It must feel so good to hit that type of milestone, jeeeez! Congratulations. I wish I could bake and send a cake. For now, I'll just send a smile.
Well done Earner! I like to think I have helped you a bit - taught you how to spell and make cake, etc.
HP is probably going wild...
I told you never to share that picture I sent you!!!
Missing you, on the rubbish site, glad you're here and glad you popped by
Thanks for all the congratulations and best wishes guys!
It's nice to not feel alone - and those 2 million views were lonely, strangers visiting my articles unnoticed... *sighs*.
The loneliness of an Internet writer and all that
Over 2 million views is a very good achievement. Congratulations. I know you must have received over 20 payout with this number.
Please prepare the cake because am about to take a flight to your country for the celebration.
Well done! quite an achievement! Your cake looks awesome, can taste it!

I did it!!! I hit 1,000,000 views. It took 4 years and one week. I was hoping it would happen on June 14th because that was the anniversary of my first published hub (which is now on owlcation.) Close enough. When I went to bed last night, I was about 300 short of the magical 1 million. When I...

There is no accolade for the 500,000k views. You get one at 100k, but then you have to wait an insanely long time to get a million, unless you're one of those lucky mega viral hubbers. Since it has taken me a couple of years to reach this point I figured I would mention it, as it may be...

Yippee, I just checked into My Account and realised that some time in the last 24 hours I hit 3,000,000 views. In fact I am now at over 3,002,000. Traffic is still slower than usual because of Pandas etc or it would have been a few weeks ago, but I got there in the end.

What a wonderful surprise I have just had. I have just discovered that my hubs have been viewed a total of 1 million times!
by Writer Fox 2 years ago
I just reached this milestone a few hours ago. In May, 2013, I had two Hubs. I reached 100,000 views on October 30, 2013, with 35 Hubs. Onward to one million! (Do you want to know what this forum post is really about? It's about the fact that SEO works on HubPages, because 99% of my...

I can't believe it! I have just hit 10,000 views. When i first started I was getting 50 hits in a good week, now 100 plus per day.thanks to the support of my followers and everyone on the forums who have been kind in their comments and given me the enthusiasm to carry on. I understand that...
