I know I have my times when I complain and question, but this is not one of them. I want to thank the HP team for all of the hard work they do, but more importantly, for the fact that they didn't give up when the going got tough. I almost did, but Robin encouraged me to stick with them, and boy am I glad I did.
I keep a chart of monthly page views by year so that I can see from one month or year to the next how things are going. As of today (and with two months to go) I have more than doubled my views since last year. If this trend continues, I will have tripled them by the end of the year.
The niche sites have definitely made a difference, and so have the forums. It was there that I learned about Flipboard, Pinterest and other sites and got tips from fellow hubbers about using them.
Furthermore, I have always felt that this is the most cleverly designed,user friendly site of any kind that I have ever seen. The ability to analyze by manipulating various areas in the site has helped me tremendously to know which articles to improve, change, join together or delete.
When I came here almost 5 years ago, I could write but knew very little about online writing. I still don't know it all, but it is obvious that I have learned a lot due to the way things are done here
So, thank you team and thank you Hubbers. This has been a great year and it ain't over yet!
I would like to add my own thanks to yours TIMETRAVELLER2. HubPages staff have worked tirelessly this past year. My own traffic has doubled and so too has my income. Having such a visual platform here indirectly brought me paid work from a completely different source too. I am very grateful. Thank you staff and Hubbers too.
Thanks TIMETRAVELER2 and to everyone who has commented here as well. We love to hear that HubPages is a good experience. It really means a lot to us. We've been through some tough times, but a great place to write about what you love is what the Team is always striving for.
You are a fine example to us all. I don't want to creep too much but... I note that you are ever willing to help others, especially beginners, here on the forums, which is commendable. More importantly, you have shown that through persistence and learning and application good things can happen.
+1000 on everything you said here, TT - I agree!
The HP team is great, and has always worked to improve the site and improve its positioning in the search engines. Many UGC sites went under after Panda, but HP survived due to good management, dedication, and a talented team. As TT said, the niche sites are making a huge difference. I need to track my traffic stats, too - I can see that it has pretty much doubled, but it would be good to track the actual numbers.
Thanks, HP Team - I am glad to be here!
My thanks too. My page views have doubled since last year. Though they are 25% less than that of in 2014.

I was just notified that one of my articles was copied. When I clicked on the warning at the top of the article, I discovered that the team had provided a prepared DMCA report that I could easily use. ...

I don't know the name of the person who edited one of my Hubs last week but I just wanted to say to her or him that I am so pleased with what you did to it. You did a great job and the Hub is performing really...

I am really not liking the front page of Hubpages these days. When I first click in to HP, I see a list of the five top questions and articles. It usually something about politics or beliefs. First of all, is that what...

Almost without fail, when a hub of mine is moved to a niche site, the views increase. I suppose this makes sense; HP created the niche sites to escape from that "content-farm" label that Google had put them...

I used to be totally addicted to HP, couldn't wait to log on everyday to see what was happening, who and what was popping in the forums, what interesting hub made HOTD, and of course, how my stats and earnings were...
