How many page views ever does your top hub have?
This question won't really tell anyone anything, since some hubs have been online for many years, and some are brand new.
Mine only has 19 views.... I am trying to get more views. So do give up.
That is pretty amazing for one hub. Woot!
I'm curious, Susan. What is your avatar photo of. It kind of looks like someone on some kind of a swing.
264,994 (in 1 1/2 years)
I have a couple that have more than a million pageviews but they are almost as old as HubPages itself and were peak properties during the massive traffic run-up the entire site experiencd from 2009-2011.
I think it's very useful to individuals to keep cumulative stats but comparing them across users with radically different timeframes has never yielded anything useful to me.
56,862 views for the past 5 years, the best hub.
What! we get views?
My seasonal hubs get more views when it is the season but nothing much at other times of the year. Right now, 17 in a day for a popular one or a new one and people here in HP take a look at it. I hope to improve this. The others have a chance but some of them may not really do well. My highest performing hub ever has 1587.
I was just about to say nobody with decent views will ever tell you as those who scam sites like this sit and wait on forums like this for people to give away clues as to which sites do really well.
I think I remember a post of yours where you said how many views your website has had. Over 6 million?
A blog is a completely different proposition to a hub!
For one thing it's a blog not a hub! My individual posts are more like hubs. However having over 2.5k posts tends to obscure which ones generate the traffic!
I just know from Squidoo that the big earning lensmasters used to complain (frequently) that every time people started comparing traffic the scammers would descend and the next thing that would happen is people would find their content scammed and spammed.
In fact one of the interesting facts I noticed is that very many of the bigger earning lensmasters never appeared in the forum - and those that did stayed well away from the threads about views and payouts.
How would somebody know which hub or lens was the one to scrape or copy? How can you tell which one gets the views versus which ones are the duds?
It's fairly easy to find out what pages on your site bring in the most traffic, just as it is on mine. High volume of pages would make the discovery process take a little longer, but that in itself is not protection.
This is a valid thought. My best hubs have been stolen numerous times. They are not stolen for content but because of the traffic they attract.
I am sorry, but I still don't understand how someone with no access to your stats knows what traffic each hub generates.
There are ways...
There are a number of ways but I'm not going to explain how here.
Nothing on the internet is private. There are a variety of ways to access your stats. I can think of ways someone could do it and I am not very tech savvy.
I have a 328,000 view Hub but it doesn't get so many views these days.
Many people like you, who were on HubPages before the first Google Panda hit in 2011, report the same thing. I wasn't on HP then, but you can see the big fall in views when it happened on Quantcast. It was sadness!
Quite a few of the high earners from those days had incredible traffic stats. And some of them used black hat methods which ultimately brought the 2011 Panda attack on the site. The forums were a very active place during the immediate aftermath. It was so sudden. Not everyone was hit but I don't think traffic has ever been the same as pre-panda days.
Here's what HubPages' traffic looked like before and after Panda:
It was certainly a sad day. I can remember the awful gut wrenching, sinking feeling so clearly.
I'd just had my best month ever here which wasn't far off $2,000 so I was feeling very optimistic. Then bam. It was like a kick in the guts.
I do think panda needed to happen though and especially to HP. Just sad that so many good hubbers got trampled.
True. I just checked my analytics from my start date to now and I didn't notice a significant change after Panda. My highest traffic was Nov. and Dec., 2011. My highest traffic date was in 2012.
I'm nowhere near your traffic stats. My highest traffic hub has 93,662 views. But to be truthful, I never imagined I would have as many views as I have.
Interesting Do you think your account ever had a panda penalty applied?
That's a lot of eyeballs you've had looking at your work. Good stuff.
I can't say for certain, but I lean towards no. I certainly have felt/feel site wide effects, but nothing extreme as others have reported. The last couple of years I haven't done too much with my account as it seems it is much harder to rank well with new content. As Paul has mentioned in the forums, it takes more time now to write well. We've learned a lot over the years about how to write and compose, use media rich content, implement effective seo methods, etc., but putting it together and getting it to rank well requires skill and time, and luck.
It's taking much longer to reach the million mark!!
I would see that as a good sign (that your subdomain hasn't been pandarised) but I know what you mean about the time factor. I keep having ideas for hubs and then not having the time to write them.
I think it's a lot harder to find promising topics with sufficient traffic potential nowadays.
It is interesting to see that graph.
It really puts things in perspective.
Have you done much to try and get the traffic back?
That's not a criticism btw, I'm just wondering. I know a lot of people just abandoned their accounts.
The hub lost traffic because it was linked to a popular TV show season. Unfortunately, it's very difficult to write high traffic hubs that don't have a sell-buy date!
Just 190,000 ... having said that, I wish they'd ALL had "just" 190,000.
Worst one has had 34 views in 3 years
@WF, that's a graphic look at the deep drop! It's interesting to note those presumably viral hub spikes in 2014.
Those were from two Hubs that went viral on Facebook. One Hubber made $5,000 from one Hub!
The last spike at the end of 2014 (September) was when all the content from Squidoo was added. Traffic went down since then.
what?....my greatest hub gave me .45 cents....lol
625,694 views last time I checked, I even put that tidbit of info in the hub intro. But its time has come and gone, though single-digit daily traffic does still keep trickling in.

Has anyone made $50 on hubpages just with only one hub?

What is your single most-visited hub? Why do you think it's so popular?Mine is "The Best Homemade Mexican Salsa". It doesn't have polls, videos or any other features that are supposed to drive more traffic and yet it consistently gets more views.

I now have 15 hubs. I am hitting 300 pageviews per day. 1 of my hubs on FIFA World Cup 2010 is contributing to 70% of the traffic. There rest of it with 13 hubs hitting 3 to 10 pageviews per day and 1 hub with 0 views most of the time. I am worry that when the World Cup is over, so will my traffic...

First a disclaimer is in order.I broke the evergreen rule with this approach. I knew it going in and did it anyway. What the hell, sometimes rules are made to be broken. Sometimes a gamble pays off, often it doesn't. I do live in Las Vegas though so it is in my blood! Hubs should be on evergreen...

Have you ever had a hub get more page views than you thought it would?I have been pleasantly surprised by a few of my poems!
