200 views on the second day of joining HubPages. How to know if it was a fluke or not ?
I'd say it was no fluke, good on you, you've obviously left me for dead
When you first start setting up your hubpages, your views are inflated because they include the amount of times you have personnally viewed the pages. At the beginning most hubbers check out there hubs quite often to edit and perfect them. Congrats on joining hubpages!
You will find that other writers here on hubpages are very keen to check out all the newbies, their profiles and their articles, so you can always expect quite a large amount of hubpages visitors to your articles when you first publish them, after a few days this will calm down and you will hopefully still see some traffic from search engines..
Go to your account, then to traffic sources and this should give you a good idea of where all your visitors are actually coming from.x
Hey Victoria, I have never seen a community so friendly. This feels like a family. Each person getting something from someone.Thanks for the tip, it will help me churn - out suitable content in future.Hope corporate life gives me enough time to hub

I'd just bask in the glory of the high number of hits while writing additional "bestsellers". :-) As you noticed, we're a friendly community so please don't hesitate to ask questions. Welcome! --Laura
Congrats! That's great. I agree with the others, that views are inflated in the beginning. I would look at your "Traffic Sources" to see if most are from hubpages or other sources. If a lot are from non-hubpages sources then some of the bump is a sign that you have great SEO. Still, a hit is a hit. Congrats!
Tips on understanding hubpages traffic, and how to improve your hubs overall performance on the web as a whole. This hub also goes into great detail as to how hubbers can better their hubs chances at attracting more viewers who simply enjoy sharing hubs worth promoting. read more
New hubs are put into the Hub Hopper, and this can generate views as well as extra traffic from people sharing your hub. You're off to a great start! Welcome to the site, and keep publishing - you're on a roll!
You want to be careful with this as HubPages also counts your own clicks in your profile. So if you edit your hubs and go in an out to check them this will count, too. For a true picture you can either use the stats button at the top of your hubs (go to account/click onhub/non-edit mode) or Google Analytics (go to account/earnings/google analytics/follow the steps).
Your 'Team Leader'
Well, let's just take a look at your first three hubs. You revealed a magic trick (shame on you), you led the way to forgiveness, and you talked us into sky diving. I would say there is a fluke . . . talent like yours.
That is impressive alright. Enjpoy it and write more, read a lot of Hubs as well.
It will go up and down. Try not to get too hung-up on it.
Sure, as long as I can be useful to someone and get to read good hubs from fellow Hubbers it will be a nice experience here I am sure.
I think it's fun and kinda mysterious watching the various numbers change. Kind of like gambling but without any risk of losing money. Articles will go from the top to the bottom of the list--or the reverse--in just a few days... Curious. Enjoy!
You won't believe I am so hooked on to it. It's such a fun game
Just wait. Time will tell if this was a fluke or not. Don't know what your topic was, but maybe you accidentally hit the WIN button right out of the starting gate. Congrats!!
If you have written something that really capture the interest of readers, no doubt, you can get this number of viewers on your second day. I would say keep on doing whatever you are doing, because it seems to be working. Congrats!
Perhaps someone with alot of followers tweeted, shared or pinned one of your hubs. I'm not sure how to check if that is what happened, but occasionally i get big spikes, and i think that is the reason in at least some cases.
Link your hubpages account with google analytics and find out the traffic sources and if possible, do more of it.
Sure, thanks ...I will remember your tip
DEFINITELY link with google analytics--that's a main way you get paid!!
you mean google adsense is it? isn't google analytics just a reporting page?
I done that too a while back and it definitely works, but Google analytics actually tracks less visits somehow then other tools I've used to track web stats, and not sure why they do such a thing.
I also had an initial spike in traffic, but not quite as dramatic as your own. It has leveled off. I'm getting a small amount of traffic, but it seems to be slowly and steadily climbing. That's pretty much what I expected.

Jennifer - first of all ... don't ask for readership. Let it come. And it will come if you do the following:1. Read others work and comment/ rate it2. Take part in the forum, even if it's just asking for help or offering help to others3. Publish hubs of interest to your fellow hubbers4. Rate up...

I have never seen this before! Analytics shows that I have traffic, but HP's traffic sources is showing all zeros. Anybody else having this issue?
by pulled name 5 years ago
Me personally I can't tell if it's google search that drives the traffic on HP or if it's the user's who contribute and their own fascination with hubs and the content they create themselves.. One user described this site as like the ring that that golem treasured.. It's like if you...
