Can you recall how your numbers (views, followers) developed from your start?
What would you call a healthy growth rate?
As no two people write the same way, nor do they write on the same topics or do the same promotion, to try and use another's growth stats to compare against your own seems a flawed comparison. Especially as HubPages too changes over time.
For example, when I first started, it was just over four years ago. The site was still in beta phase (being tested), there was no user forum, half the capsules we have now didn't exist, the follower feature was a few years from being invented, and the website on the whole had zero reputation.
How does that compare to when you started on this site just a month ago?
My start here was kind of non-serious one and I had never actually learnt how the things work over here. So, with 1-3 hubs I had no follower for around 8-9 months and rare page views! Luckily I now have over 20 followers with just 9 hubs but I've learnt the things working here. I now am simply addicted to Hubpages and its people!
Ha! Ha! Spider Girl,
that sound a lot like me, I started 9 months ago and I only written 1 hub and gain I think 2 followers, however I didn't comeback and write another hub for 7 months so I lost my following. I didn't start really writing until these past two months and plan on staying at it from here on. I now have a nice following because I now take my writing seriously.
I've had a great start so far...I think the key to starting well is to consistently write interesting articles.
I think I'm doing pretty good, and I'm currently not so focussed even on backlinking, SEO or whatever...but I can see my hubscore and karma going up consistently, and my articles never stay below a ranking of 60 for long.
Its nice and very encouraging...I'm getting a very nice feeling about hubpages, and will definitely continue to contribute!

Hi all,I've been here a month now and have 20 hubs, but when I read some of the forum posts I am worried that my traffic is low. I have had around 680 views total for all of my 20 hubs which averages about 6 per day for most of them, on average. I know it takes time to build up traffic and I am...

First a disclaimer is in order.I broke the evergreen rule with this approach. I knew it going in and did it anyway. What the hell, sometimes rules are made to be broken. Sometimes a gamble pays off, often it doesn't. I do live in Las Vegas though so it is in my blood! Hubs should be on evergreen...

I took 3 years and 4 months--my first hub was published on 6/17/14-- but I passed 500,000 views this morning. (As of the last update 500,064) views. I was hoping to hit 500 followers for a double whammy, but I am still 6 short. At my current rate of views, I think I will hit one million in 1 to 1...

On New Year's Day I acquired my 500th follower. In addition to this, I hope to reach another milestone within the next two weeks - the 500,000th visit to my hubs in 4 years. As far as page visits is concerned my goal now is to double this and reach a million views in the next 2 years. But although...

Why does hub stats show views from my account which I do not recall doing?I have tried to monitor this for some time and intentionally stop accessing a hub in question and this still happens. I have also tried changing password of my HP accounts, assuming that someone else accesses my accounts but...

HP has always said do evergreen hubs. Politics is certainly not evergreen. it has a short "shelf-life" if it is about a current event. And since I would mostly write about U.S. politics, they might have very little appeal in other countries. I use my blogs to write about politics,...
