      It will grow as people get to know you, leave a few comments on other hubbers hubs and get yer face known about the site and within a month it will be well doubled. Don't be discouraged ok, now give me a big smile

        That seems very good to me.  That is 50 views per week, assuming that you wrote all 5 on day 1.  Whilst it is likely thet some of these views will be your own, it should still be quite good.  Some of my hubs get less than 10 views a week, and I only have three hubs getting more than 50 views in the last week.

    I think that is probably average for the number of hubs that you have. smile If you want more traffic, write more quality hubs. The more pages you have online, the better chance you'll have of people finding you and reading your hubs.

    Do you twitter and use facebook? Those two sites can also help increase your readership.

    Good luck to you!

      You will find that your share will be low anywhere you sell stories,so keep writing and the revenue will increase.
      Remember Google did not force you too write and they gave you a free web site,Blogspot.com to write on,as does Hubpages.com

        No Google didnt force me ,but my opinion is they are still greedy but then again they didnt get to be wealthy by being generous ,I know that.
        Just is disheartening to see advertisements make more than a good article ( just y opinion)

      LOL!I still have not applied for Adsense..waiting for more page views as otherwise I am terrified of being rejected! smile

    Look at it this way....

    A normal interest paying bank account pays 3% per year with variants.

    So to make 3 dollars per year you need 100 in the bank. The hundred dollars only exists until you spend it or give it away. Once it's gone then you forfeit the 3$ bonus.

    So if you are earning 300 dollars as a hubpages writer per year with your Adsense Hubber program then you are in the same league as anyone who has 10000 dollars locked into a interest savings account.

    Every hub is money in the bank. You only ever get to spend the interest on that virtual money.

    Long story short....

    To know how much you get paid to write a hub simply take the number of hubs you have and divide it by your adsense revenue for the full year.

    If you see my point then you'll see how earning money with hubpages is a wealth building program.

    A million dollars in the bank gets you 30k a year in interest so get writing and as stated before if you want to retire a millionaire and live off of the interest then simply keep writing and hope that hubpages and the internet is around in for very many years.

    In other words always back up your hubpages stories.

    Lyla Hi and welcome ,wont be long youll find your way around , I joined up wrote one hub ,fluffed around ,didnt register for adsense either til bout 2months later.
    I doubt they will reject you because its people like us who carry their advertisements all around the great big highway for free! ( on our hubs and urls that you will later post on other sites)...

    Good Luck and Have fun

    I think you're sitting on the average pageviews, lyla smile I got a lot early on with a particular hub, and I think that two things helped me, not the least of which was my very high author score at the time I was getting 400 hits a day on that one hub. I was on the first page of hubbers for quite some time because my score was 100. The article itself was also on the first page under Hubs for quite a while and also hit a hub score of 100. I am certain that these things made a difference because it was all internal traffic.

    Now more of my traffic is coming from search engines (which is good) and I'm getting a more stable number of daily views on my hubs. Something around 400 a day. Keeping in mind that I have over 60 of them, I think that this makes sense smile

      lylaposted 8 years ago in reply to this

      WOW!400 per day!WOW again.smile My computer oriented articles are getting a few search engine hits..for instance 'Make free iphone ringtones..'has 117 hubpages hits and 38 various search engine hits.Do you think that this is fine?I read in forums that usually  search engine hits are more than hubpages hits.Yes..I have a long way to go..thanks for the encouragement!smile

    You just need to give it time. Don't worry about it too much. Try to relax.

    Give yourself some time to climb up in the SERPs. You'll need to build backlinks, and I prefer to let this happen naturally. It's not the easiest thing in the world to wait, but it is less time-consuming than going around to blogs and leaving your hub link in comments, etc. It can also be more practical as you don't risk being banned lol

    By the way, those 400 were almost entirely internal hits. I get a few through SEs but for the most part they don't stick around -- they're looking for porn wink

    Post a controversial Hub that everyone on here will have an opinion about! I wrote one about guns, and boy o boy did that stir up some opinions. It did wonders for the amount of page views!

    1. Everyday Miracles profile image90
      Everyday Miraclesposted 8 years ago in reply to this

      A big YES! This works wonders! But remember it tends to only bring internal traffic and it tends to be one big bang and then gone again sad

        C.Ferreiraposted 8 years ago in reply to this

        Naturally, hubs will have decreasing views over time, but that one big bang brings in many more possible fans. It helps to increase your readership in the future.

        Look at that EM...we agree!
