I just recently signed up for hubpages and have written 3 hubs. I have tried quite a bit to get the word out thru other avenues than hubpages. For the more experienced hubbers what range of response would you consider you hub to be sucessful. I don't really have anything to compare it to. Just trying to maximize my distribution..thanks in advance
In the early days, you will get very little traffic, no matter what you do. It can take time for the search engines to notice your Hubs - and when they do, they can drop them just as quickly. It takes a while for them to find their place. Unless you're very savvy about SEO etc, the average Hubber makes next to nothing for the first few months. Once the money starts trickling in, though, it improves every week.
If you participate in the forums and comment on other people's Hubs, you'll get more visits from other Hubbers, but that's not paying traffic.
The best way to determine success on HubPages is for you to set your own goals, and then best them.
Each writer has different levels of experience, writing skills, and purpose for being here, so there's no benchmark guidelines for what is successful.
Another good way to start is by providing good quality and relevant content, relying on search engines to find you. If you use analytics, you will see what is bringing visitors to your site. I recommend choosing sub topics for your best performing hub and interlink them. Good luck!
Here's a link to analytics:
Thanks, I did sign up for google analytics but they produced an html code and I am not quite sure where I should be inserting that into my page..doesn't seem to really be a place for it.
Follow the instructions here:
Nice posts from what I have read. I got google analytics just a while ago too. Does this mean you have to paste the code in all of your individual hubs? This is a WYSIWYG kind of thing in our dashboard right?.. and the only thing to insert the code is through the view source. Anyone who tried it? Kindly share. thanks
"Success is a journey , not a destination" , I heard that in Toast Masters , I'm sure someone famous said that
To me success is keep improving yourself , and what realche said is a good way to measure it , set goals , achieve them and improve upon your goal

Hi,Around a week ago, (could be longer, I don't always check), I noticed that my daily page view figures had suddenly plummeted from several hundred to just tens. Of course this could be explained away by an overnight drop in my hub popularity - except for the fact that I'm also getting...

I have several hubs for which Google Analytics reports "Avg Time on Page" as 00:00:00. But in HP stats, those same articles show 5 stars for View Duration. The figures for page views seem to track between GA and HP.Anybody have an idea about the view duration discrepancy?

I saw where this issue has been addressed in the past and supposedly corrected. But for many weeks now, especially toward the end of the week and weekends, my HubPages stats will not update for hours and sometimes even days at a time. An example would be "Includes data from 17 hours ago and...

Hello. I have some questions regarding Google Analytics and Webmaster tools. Any help is greatly appreciated. When I checked my webmaster tools, I saw a lot of URL errors, a 404 crawl error because apparently "Googlebot couldn't crawl this URL because it points to a non-existent page"....
