What do you consider to be a respectable number of hits per day?
When you check your stats, what do you consider to be a respectable number of hits per day on a hubpages? And what are the benefits that back up your answer?
Previous responses varied widely from 10 - 5,000 hits per day. Is there a consensus of how many hits will bring Hubpages Affiliate and/or Adsense income? With Hubpages income is conversion an issue? What is conversion? Explain how a Hub with 100 hits produces less income than Hub with 10 hits/day?
If we are writing for money, we need a large number of hits. The number depends on how much money you want to make.
I wish I knew how hubpages actually made the computations for hits that would produce adsense cash, but unfortunately its not really possible to do so, because this number is arbitrarily based on the activity being done by each user on your hub.
Hits per day really aren't as important to me, as it is the amount of time people spend on my hub. If you focus more on the content levels & quality of your hubs being produced each day. The number of hits won't matter, because each user will choose to navigate just a single hub the way they choose.
If you provide useful relevant pathways for them to interact with and possibly choose from, this will help increase the possibility that they will either make a purchase, follow a relevant ad, or go to another hub of yours or even inspect the profile to see what else you have to offer.
So the this focus on the number of hits truly won't be an accurate measure, on whether your going to be more successful here, your activity here makes all the difference in terms of hits, and the longevity one possesses in a given system such as hubpages. Income can only be earned if your viewers interact with the ad's systems you activate on your account. Without properly setting up your account, there is no earnings, so an adsense account is required as well as others, & verification of all these accounts. Google ads are activated no matter if you activate Adsense or not, as soon as you publish a single hub.
I hope this helps answer your question somewhat, its my honest experienced opinion of sorts, and I'm not downing the question, but I'm attempting to address the fact that numbers here don't tell the tale for positional success at all, for financial success to be achieved, one must be a smart and precise writer, who knows a great deal about networking with others, as well as knowledgeable of SEO & web communications amongst their peers as well.
What do you mean by "hits?" That term has long been obsolete when it comes to referencing Hub interactions. Do you mean pageviews? Or unique visitors? Or ad impressions? Or ad clicks? Those are the some of the various metrics that are now measured to gauge web page success or activity.
There's no set number of pageviews that can be said to be the level to strive for. A Hub with low traffic but high conversion (lots of interaction, esp ad clicks) can make more money than a high traffic Hub with low conversion and a high bounce rate.
If you look at the overall HubPages stats (http://hubpages.com/stats/) you will see that a very small number of Hubs get more than 10,000 pageviews per month. Those are most likely the most successful pages on the site due to having more traffic than all the others.
i have just started again and im getting about 4 hits per day so good might be 50-60.
