How do you judge whether you have a successful hub or not?
When my hubs are first published I look for at least one or two google hits in the first week. How do you judge your success and predict the future of your new hubs?
This all depends on your topic and goals. For me I have one hub that is approaching 250 comments. I consider that good. The down side is it is all hubbers so no one is clicking ads. However I do get the pageviews through HP. For my hubs geared at google traffic I like to see several google or other outside source views in the first week. If my article is getting steady google traffic, getting good feedback from other hubbers, and showing well in the google search I am happy.
I consider a hub successful if it is getting traffic each day. Depending on the subject matter, I expect different results from different hubs. For some hubs, I am excited if at least one person reads it per day. For other hubs, I would be disappointed if they didn't at least have 50 views a day.
To me a hub is successful if it gets traffic the first day I submit it and keeps getting traffic when it is no longer new. A hub is not successful unless it gets traffic. I also like getting good comments. It makes me feel that someone appreciates my work. Usually I don't look to see where the traffic is coming from.
A successful hub - One which gets sustained search engine traffic(preferably Google) without you having to update it .
If my hub is getting daily traffic then I will find it successful. Especially if I am getting traffic from search engine that could be the best for my hub. All of us know that nothing is better than organic traffic. Secondly If readers are making comment on my hub it is the sign of a good informative hub.

An ongoing topic I've seen over the years I've been on Hubpages is "How do I make my low traffic hubs better."I saw it again today in a Hub Pro thread (if you haven't already, should definitely opt in - it was a fantastic experience.)My best advice to anyone who is writing online is:If it...

The purpose of this post is NOT to moan and groan, but rather to better understand it, by sharing your insight and experiences. Obviously we now have to work using its parameters. Stayin' Alive Ha Ha Ha

There have been several theories about what content Google is penalising and rewarding in the search results but at the moment it does seem a bit random (from my end). Let's compare notes and hopefully we can see some common threads in there. What content of yours is holding on to its ranking and...

I am major curious about the answer to this mystery.... just how much traffic are those Hubs who make it to the HOT HUBS actually receiving? I know that most likely nobody is going to give this up with specific numbers.... but how about some averages as to what kind of traffic brings a...

I am just curious, all 92 hubs of mine are featured. In your opinion, should one delete (although Featured) any hubs where the score on a particular hub has eventually dropped way down from when it was initially high at one point? Or would it be better to just unpublish and later...
