I finally hit 5,000,000 views!

    There's no badge for it, but I hit 5 million views slightly earlier than anticipated. I edited a ton of hubs a few months ago and it really boosted my traffic (plus the niche sites help!)

    Now on to 10 million views... that'll be how many years? tongue

      That's super cool congrats, I'm on my way to 3 but my traffic has slowed despite edits, but I'm spending more time on my niche sites/blogs and growing traffic and earnnings there so it all works out lol smile 

      Happy for you! 5 million is a lot of hard work!

      You go girl!  That's fantastic!  It probably won't be as long to 10 as it was to 5 because I've noticed that the more views you get, the faster they come in.  At any rate, 5 million is a huge accomplishment.  Good job!

    Congratz! Im still working on my ever increasingly difficult 1M view mark. I think they should add accolades for every million pageviews etc. 1M 2M 3M etc. It wouldn't be too difficult to implement and would make the community prouder of there accomplishments.

    Congratulations! There should totally be a badge for 5 million views, though getting five million views is a pretty nice reward for writing in and of itself.

    Cool.  Well done, melbel!

  15. melbel profile image95
    melbelposted 9 months ago

    Thanks, everyone! The real boost came when I edited older hubs! You'd be surprised what small typos you can miss and how making a hub look pleasing to the eye can do!

    I'm constantly writing new hubs and all the while keeping the old ones fresh. I still have a long way to go to be earning what I want to earn.

    Good luck to everyone in the thread. I hope we can all meet at the 10 M mark, yeah?

    Congratulations on hitting the fabulous landmark. I have about 50 featured hubs but my traffic is hardly reaching 20 per day. I don't know what the problem is. I have heard about the Panda update etc but I am not sure if its related to it. It would be great if someone provide me advice on how to boost my traffic.
