    How many views do most people get on their hubs?

    I don't think there is any sort of average that can be supplied as an answer to this.

    The top hubs can get several thousand pageviews per month.  The average is a little under 200 pageviews per month for a published hub.

      So if I have a little over 1000 views in about 3 days with my most popular hub having 575 views that means I'm doing pretty well right?

        Are you building for the short-tail?  Or the long-tail? 

        If your strategy is the former, you're doing well.  However, the topics you've chosen clearly have a "shelf-life" and over the long run, you might see your Hubs losing relevancy or dropping in search popularity.

          Right now most of my blogs are for the short term since they are news items

    My best hub has 372 views per month. My hot hub has 1394 total views per month.

    This is of course very high yet very low statistics compared to other hubbers hubs.

    Hope this helps you..

    Traffic is only one of the components of HubScore, but this will give you a reasonable idea of what kind of traffic hubs in different ranges may be getting.

    Hubscore 98-100 - 75 hubs - average 3700 views per month
    Hubscore 93-97 - 301 hubs - average 1700 views per month
    Hubscore 88-92 - 863 hubs - average 1130 views per month
    Hubscore 83-87 - 2103 hubs - average 677 views per month
    Hubscore 78-82 - 4060 hubs - average 400 views per month
    Hubscore 73-77 - 6477 hubs - average 180 views per month
    ...

    If you want something to shoot for there are a handful of hubs that are doing more than 100,000 page views a month, and almost a hundred that are doing more than 10,000 page views a month.

    100,000 page views a month --- that is amazing, I wonder how did they do that - what kind of promotions do they use?  (hint...hint please)

      I think to reach that level you need to either, 1) have one of your hubs make it to the top of one of the popular social sites (digg, reddit, slashdot, stumbleupon etc.), or 2)  be in the top few positions for a popular search term.

      Here is a one hint: http://www.google.com/search?q=guitar+hero+3+cheats

      Once you get in that position, natural back linking will help keep you there.  The trick, I think, is figuring out what search term is about to explode a few days before it happens.  SunSeven has had a few big hits similar to this.

    If you want to be a political blogger, you would get more attention actually having a blog, and joining the "politico" bloggers. There are plenty of them and you'd get ongoing traffic from link exchanges.

      Well yes that may be true but I like this site because its extremely easy to use, very informative, and lets you advertise. Plus I don't just want to blog about political stuff as you can see by some of my posts so far. Thanks though

    Paul, I'm Curious (spell?) what is this hub score that shows up on my picture? I do nothing and one day its at 81 the next 79 and the next 69 the score on my blog also does this.. can you enlighten a newbie as to what this system is and how it works and how it impacts our bottom line? I tried to find info on it but have failed.. maybe I'm not seeing it.. care to help?

    Jerrico

    p.s. on another note, not knowing what it is doesnt stop one from getting excited that he's at 81 where the top score seems to be 100 wink but wisdom and knowledge are two different tigers.. I would like to graduate to wise as to why I am so happy about this score smile hehe thanx.

    The HubScore is calculated for each individual hub.  Many factors go into determining the score and the algorithm is something we are constantly adjusting, with the objective being that the "best" content will have the highest score.  That said, a low score doesn't necessarily mean we think your hub isn't any good -- traffic and page views is the big decider between a score of 70 and a score of 90-100, for an otherwise good hub.   You can read little more about it here in the FAQ:

    http://hubpages.com/faq/#hubscore

    We also calculate a Hubber Score, which is what you see on your profile page or with your picture here in the forum.  Many factors also feed into this, with the intent being that the score is representative of your over all contribution to the HubPages community.   The most important way to contribute here is by creating good hubs, so correspondingly that is the biggest factor in the Hubber Score.  However we also look at contributions in the forums, reading and commenting on other peoples (worthwhile comments only please, spam will be penalized severely), your fans and who you are a fan of, etc.  This score also favors recent contribution, so your score will probably decline during long periods of inactivity. 

    Both the HubScore of your hubs and the Hubber Score will bounce around quite a bit.  That's just the way they work.  A little bit of perturbation helps ensure more hubs and authors get reasonable exposure on the site.

    One of my hubs is 18,000 views a month and my top ten hubs get between 100-700 a day.

      But how much earnings for such traffic ? My traffic for all my blogs (not only on hubpages) is about [redacted] per month for 40$ earnings (so [redacted] eCPM).

        It's a violation of the AdSense TOS to reveal anything but total earnings (ie. cpm is supposed to be kept private).  You should be careful what you publicize.

    Thats pretty impressive traffic, Stubbs, where does most of it come from?

    Is it straight from yahoo or google, or its from you creating backlinks somewhere?

    1. stubbs profile image65
      stubbsposted 10 years agoin reply to this

      my top source is hubpages then digg then google. hubpages and digg are pretty much equal with Google only a little behind. I do well on digg with a few particular articles/pictures.

      (i don't know how much information we are allowed to divulge?)
