Hi all, Just a quick question for you. One of my articles (most recent) has received almost 18'700 page views, in just over a week. Is that a good figure, or pretty average? I don't really write that often on Hubpages and tend to focus on writing elsewhere. I haven't really ever focused on figures. Can anyone enlighten me please? Thank you all very much in advance.
Congratulations! Curious if it is the one I think and read I was amazed at how many comments were from outside HubPages too. That looks like there is awesome reader engagement. A great hub to learn from. Could we think of that as 'Home Schooling' here at HP? If so, then Thank You :-)
Thank you Tsmog. Yes, that's right, homeschooling and it's far more widespread in the USA. A touchy subject though, as you can see by reading the article comments. There are some fierce home-schoolers out there!
Open up the hub and check the stats. (There are actual numbers viewed and also a graph to show you where the activity is coming from.) If the page views are from Facebook, you will have a surge and then those views will dry up. If it is from Pinterest, the views last a lot longer since the hub is shared over and over. If the views are from Google, you are most likely at the top of the search engine and those views will continue for many months to come! Hope for a good placement in the search engines. Congratulations on those numbers and good luck in the months to come.
Thank you for your knowledge. I'm thinking the article in question isn't really evergreen and will only last until the next UK education stats come out. It has been shared on Facebook with a parenting site called Nuturestore, which ahs 300k followers. Also, it's on the UK home ed groups, so being shared by home ed families. I expect it to dry up but will learn from this article and go for a more evergreen post next time. Thank you
I want to thank Hubpages for allowing me to publish here. You were my first love for publishing online. I still haven't found another lover like you and can't seem to let you go. With all the arguments and disagreements...
A couple years ago in 2011, I had a hub on another account that went up to 5000 views rapidly. Eventually it waned to about 1000-1300 views. Now after a couple years it gets about a few hundred views a day...
I just reached 100,000 views on 35 Hubs. (I only had 2 beginning in May of this year.) So, you can get great traffic from Google on HubPages! I'm happy about the traffic, but I wish the CPM were higher.
