So confused as a new member, how will I know if my pages are up to par?
With 13 hubs, I have roughly 310 views. Is there a way to see if any hits are from google? The only days I do get views are the days I post a new hub. Main concern is quality of hubs though. Not getting much on feedback. Any thoughts would be appreciated!
You ask how to see if there are any hits from Google. In "my account" click on Traffic Sources, found on the list in the left bar. They will eventually be listed there, if not yet, as totals for all your hubs. For individual hubs, click on "stats" at the top of the hub, and under the total of Page Views will eventually be, if not yet, the "Top Traffic Sources" for that hub. Your ten days of being a hubber may be too soon to see these hits calculated much, yet. I glanced at six of your hub titles and they look quite good for a new hubber, and title is key. Will check further when I have time. Hope you get some more input from others, too.
It can take a few days for google to pick up your hubs and since you are such a new user google probably hasn't been able to determine whether you have good content or not. Just give it a little time and everything will level out and you can see where you're at.
To see where your traffic is coming from go to "my account" by clicking on your username on the upper right of the screen. There is a gray box on the left with a list of things starting with "Statistics" there is an option further down called "traffic sources" this will tell you where just about every view comes from.
By looking through a couple of your hubs it seems you have pretty good quality. There are headers, strong paragraphs, and your writing is clear. I would recommend adding a picture to at least some of them because they are easy to come up with pictures for. An aloe plant, a bucket of rain water, a woodtick.
If you're looking for more feedback on your hubs I would recommend commenting on other people's hubs. Sometimes they will decide to go look at yours and you can gain followers this way which will give you more viewers in the long run.
Go through some of the articles in the learning center http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/contents for more information about where to get free pictures and how to cite them properly as well as tips about the capsules and stuff. Reading other people's hubs will give you a good baseline for what is a good article and what isn't.
The best way is to hub hop and see what others are writing about. Hanging out here is also a good way to get views. Someone sees your question or your answer to a question, then clicks on your profile and reads a hub or two. It truly is networking. A lot of people don't want opinions on their writing and get insulted if someone points out errors etc. So it is hard call to comment on someone's hub if one's response to it is negative.
It's very easy to know. If there's something wrong with your hubs, they'll be taken down by a moderator -- if you're unlucky, of course.

Possibly I overlooked the answer to this question in the forums, but I have noticed over the past three weeks at least, a significant drop of at least half of my traffic views during this period. And of course a significant drop in my earnings. Are other writers in the community...

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...

Just curious how many pages views a day some of you are receiving. I'm up to about 300 a day on my content.

Ever since the switch to subdomains, I have seen specific subdomain names listed on the traffic stats for individual Hubs; and on the Traffic Sources Page, the numbers for HubPages have seemed to decline (understandably). Recently, I have seen higher numbers for HubPages.com, and I don't...

I just received a pleasant surprise while checking my stats, which I admit I do more often than I should. But one of my best performing hubs got 10 times the amount of traffic it usually receives, from 200-300 to over 3300. This has happened before but I figure it was a share that begot more...
