    Does most of your traffic come from within Hub Pages or from outside Hub Pages?

    I've noticed that most of my traffic comes from google. I consider this a good thing. However I had been expecting most of my traffic to come from Hub Pages during my first year. I'm wondering if this is similar to others experience. Did most of your traffic come from google or another outside source during your first year?

    For the first month or so, most of my traffic came from HubPages. Google started finding me at about the six week point. Someone asked a question the other day and did the math for me that about 12% of my traffic is from HP now, the majority of it's from Google.

    In the 9 days i have been a member here, about 80% of my traffic is from HP. I am assuming this is just because i am pretty fresh on the block still

      That would be my assumption. Though I also assumed that traffic from HP would outweigh other traffic for a long time.

      Well, atm my traffic is fairly low. Its increasing steadily each month but it is still low.  Looking at Traffic Sources though, in the past 24 hrs 11 page views have come from HP, 9 of those are from my subdomain. 71 hits have come from Google.

      71 from Google? Most of us can't even reach 50 ? How come you can get 71?

      I wish I knew. More specificly 41 from google.com The rest from google in other parts of the world. For example; .co.uk, .com.ph, .com.au, .ca, .co.in, .ie, .com.sg, .es, .fr, .ru. None of these alone amount to much but I just view them as Google.

    Most of my traffic comes from Google or other sources besides hubpages.

    I only get a significant amount of traffic from hubpages in the first few days after publishing a hub. After that, the hub usually gets traffic from social media, and eventually google.

    Some of my hubs even get significant traffic from google within days of publishing.

    I currently get about 80% traffic from search engines and the rest from social media/ hubapages or other sources. Although I've been on here for three years, I've published most of my hubs in the last 3-4 months.

      For the most part I haven't used social media. I've merely played with pinterest and some other sites a little. Interesting. Thanks for commenting.

    I've been here since mid-May.  According the Google Analytics, 79.6% of my traffic is from search engines, 13.9% of my traffic is from referral's (Hubpages), and 6.5% of my traffic is direct.

    I had two hubs that were highly ranked in the search engines and had about 3,000 pageviews between the two of them in 3 months.  The problem though is they are not evergreen hubs (college football previews) and traffic has died down now that the season has started.  Since the start of the season on 8/30, my search engine traffic is down to 73.1%.  Not a big deal but my pageviews have been down significantly.  Which means I need to start working on new hubs!

      It seems to me like that would require more consistant effort but with a greater number of page views in a short amount of time. I've been trying to focus on things that I believe have some ever green potential. But some of both may be better.

      sportsfatherposted 6 years agoin reply to this

      Evergreen hubs are the way to go for the long run.  If you can produce a quality, ever green hub every month, you will likely see some long-term success on hubpages.  But it's not easy getting a hub that is ever green and get 10+ pageviews every day.

    I am new to hubpages so most of my traffic comes from HP. Starting to see my hubs on google, even on the first page. smile

      molometerposted 6 years agoin reply to this

      Don't get too excited. The first page results you are seeing on Google are probably coming from your own computers cache. This is known as the personalisation aspects of search. I  have written a hub on this very topic.

    2. Georgie Lowery profile image91
      Georgie Loweryposted 6 years agoin reply to this

      I agree with molometer and I found that out the hard way. If you don't have the traffic to support seeing all of your Hubs on the front page, it's probably your cache.

    3. Wesley Meacham profile image92
      Wesley Meachamposted 6 years agoin reply to this

      I concur with the others. Google pays close attention to what you search for in an attempt to "help" you find what you're looking for. They don't seem to realize that in some cases this can be detrimental to search results.

    It's quite weird, but all my traffic comes from Hub pages. Google is nowhere in the picture. I've just begun my HP journey.. So, I get disappointed at times about it. Tried several things so far such as bookmarking, but nothing really seems to help.

    Do you have any thing to share with me on this?

    1. Wesley Meacham profile image92
      Wesley Meachamposted 6 years agoin reply to this

      I've not actually done that much. I haven't done any bookmarking at all. Many of my hubs are cross linked but that is about it.

    I have been with hubpages for around 6 months, and around 80% of my 5000 views have come from Google.  I only have 14 hubs, and 1 hub makes up over half that traffic. My hubs are designed to be evergreen so nothing topical or seasonal, and I'm happy with this approach.  I would rather rely on external sources than other hubbers for my traffic.

      5000? You must have relatives working inside Google corporation, or maybe you are from China, Hong Kong, Korea or Vietnam? If I can get 500 visitors per day from Google I will be laughing all days long, too bad I can't so why write good quality hub?

      Wesley Meachamposted 6 years agoin reply to this

      Do you mean 5000 total page views or 5000 a day?

    Most of my views come from within Hub Pages.  Since I have been on Hub Pages for 9 month I only have one out of 39 Hubs that receives a bunch of hits from Google.

    My chrisinhawaii hubs are mostly all from hubpages and hubbers, with a little socal media too.  Google is only here and there.

    On my niche account, though, probably 80-90 percent of the traffic is from Google, Bing, and Yahoo.

    1. Wesley Meacham profile image92
      Wesley Meachamposted 6 years agoin reply to this

      That is intersting. I'm guessing you do more socializing on your chrisinhawaii account?

      chrisinhawaiiposted 6 years agoin reply to this

      I don't think I could keep up with multiple groups of followers.  So chrisinhawaii has over 300 followers, and that's where I interact with everyone.  My niche account has only 8 followers, and I don't really follow anybody or comment from that acct.

    I've only been with HP for two weeks. I'm not sure but stats show that virtually all my traffic is from hubpages, especially my first week. Haven't checked stats today but I've noticed a decrease in hub comments, last 3 new hubs no comments. Is this indicative of decrease in hub traffic? I don't think I've seen anything from google. To tell you the truth, I'm a little confused with the whole traffic thing but still loving the writing process.

    1. Wesley Meacham profile image92
      Wesley Meachamposted 6 years agoin reply to this

      Keep writing. Also read and comment on other people's hubs., in the forums and questions like you did here. Other people will notice and your comments will increase. Most importantly, keep writing.

    The majority of my traffic comes directly from search engines, with Google being number one.  The second greatest source for generating traffic to my hubs actually comes from Pinterest.

    After being on HubPages for close to four years, I honestly cannot remember that far back, as far as where the majority of my traffic came from in my first year with HubPages.  However, keep in mind that many changes have been made over the years, both with HubPages as well as with Google.

    I get most of my Hub traffic from Google. The second highest i get from hubpages. A decent amount of Hub traffic i get from social media like Twitter and Google plus and from sites like Digg, Delicious, StumbleUpon, Reddit, Pinterest andTumblr.

    Most of my traffic comes from hubpages. The traffic is internal as well as having a few hubbers have linked my hubs. It's definitely a good thing if most of your traffic is from google!

  16. Goody5 profile image65
    Goody5posted 6 years ago

    It depends on the hub. Some hubs get a lot of traffic from Google, and other hubs get a lot of traffic from the hub pages. Most of the wonder comments come the hubbers on the hub pages, and that's what I like to see and read.

    1. Wesley Meacham profile image92
      Wesley Meachamposted 6 years agoin reply to this

      Yeah, I can see how many hubs would be only relevant to the hubpages audience.

    ElleBeeposted 6 years ago

    For me it is different with different hubs.  Interestingly, I found that while my hubs with higher overall view count tend to have lots of google traffic, my hubs with less traffic that are viewed from within hub pages tend to have a lot more comments! My two hubs with the most comments also have the lowest overall number of views on them.

    1. Wesley Meacham profile image92
      Wesley Meachamposted 6 years agoin reply to this

      That is interesting. I get a couple of comments from people who are guest users but like you point out I think that hubbers are much more likely to leave a comment.
