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...

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...

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,...

I noticed this many months ago and the problem is still the same now and is measurable. I don't know if this applies to other users also but the stats showing in my account are way inaccurate. For example, after publishing my latest hub, my Blogger stats showed that over 290 users had clicked...

Hi everyone. I've been putting some work in writing quality articles the last few months, all my articles are approved as featured but earnings are still pretty low. I have earned a total of $1+ in two months, and with that speed it will take years to reach checkout. I have both Hubpages and...

Right now, while a Hub is pending, it doesn't show ads, it has a "no follow" tag etc. However our followers get notified and they may share the Hub during that time. It would be nice if that notification could be delayed, too.
