Have you ever had a hub get more page views than you thought it would?
I have been pleasantly surprised by a few of my poems!
I have a very hard time predicting what will be successful. Sometimes the ones I think will fly flop and often the other way around.
I agree with you about poetry. They have been some of the more successful pieces I've written, so I'll definitely be returning to that when I find the time.
I wonder what kind of really strange hubs get huge traffic. I don't have any myself, but I've seen some here that are on very odd topics that get a huge number of comments.
Yep, I wrote a hub about the biggest snake ever a few weeks ago, and its quickly become one of my most viewed hubs, definitely didn't predict that.
Yes. I wrote a Hub back in April 2011 about "Judging People" (http://hubpages.com/t/249d8b) and it is one of my highest traffic Hubs from Google! The funny thing is that it doesn't get a lot of HubPages Traffic or comments for that matter, but every day it gets decent views from search engines.
I started getting traffic after I edited the Hub a few months ago and added more content to it and also tweaked the title for better keywords. I also have a movie review about the Haunting in Connecticut that does very well on Google although almost no traffic from HP.
On the other hand, I have some Hubs that are well researched and keyword rich yet get hardly any traffic. It's so weird how random certain topics can be in regards to traffic. I just never know what my next successful (or not so successful) Hub will be! Power in numbers!
As for my poems...I don't get ANY traffic myself! That's why I deleted them as individual Hubs and added them together as a collection, and still get no traffic! Perhaps I am not a great poet...lol
LOL JS I doubt that is because you are not a good poet. Maybe it's just that your other hubs are so much more popular in topic. You are right about the randomness of popularity! Great share.
Thanks for the insight ChristyWrites! I appreciate your comment very much! JS~
Yes, I wrote a very simple, spur of the moment hub on saving money and it has the highest page views of all my hubs.
My poetry doesn't draw a ton of views but I write that for my own need and pleasure. But the articles on financial matters and an old college paper on Ibsen's Doll House have surprised me.
I also have some poems that are doing much better than expected. It's a nice feeling.
Yes, I have! I wrote a hub for the weekly Hubmob topic (now called Weekly Inspiration topic) about something vintage. After I wrote it, I laughed at myself for picking my subject and was sure nobody would be interested reading about an old refrigerator. But to my pleasant surprise, that hub has become one of my best performing hubs. Who knew?
I never really thought about how many pageviews a Hub might get. But now that I've been here for almost six years, I've got one that has over one million views just by itself. That is a pleasant surprise.
I think 'not thinking' about how many views a hub might get is probably good advice - I have gotten too wound up in views lately and it should be just about writing what interests you (and might interest other people).
I have written a couple of 'funny' poems which have both better than I thought they would, one of them picking up some Google traffic, but I only write poetry occasionally. My most viewed hub is about British TV but for some reason it has bombed over the last 2 weeks after regularly getting about 400 views a week - which is a pain (
Yes. I had a hub called Do you like to eat? Got more than I expected.

I hear people talking all the time about hubs that produce good readership, but I know this number differs for many. In your case, how many views per month do you think is good for any given article? Just curious.

I now have 15 hubs. I am hitting 300 pageviews per day. 1 of my hubs on FIFA World Cup 2010 is contributing to 70% of the traffic. There rest of it with 13 hubs hitting 3 to 10 pageviews per day and 1 hub with 0 views most of the time. I am worry that when the World Cup is over, so will my traffic...

The scoring system of habpages is either fundamentally flawed or purposely biased in favor of long hubs. You said it hubpages team: the more, the merrier, but I donâ��t think that this is in your interest, or the interest of hubbers and other people using the website. To make my case, I used...

I am experiencing an overall average off 66 percent less page views per day, for seven days versus a week previous and for the past two months. Such a huge drop in page views makes me think that Google has tuned up something again. I do know that I don't have the time and energy to keep...

How many views, roughly, are needed to keep a hub from being unfeatured?I've noticed a lot of people complaining about hubs being unfeatured for lack of engagement.I've noticed traffic declining on some of my hubs, and I was wondering if anyone knows at what point I'd have to worry about being...
