Have you surpassed to 100,000 hub views mark yet?
If you have surpassed it please explain how tough it was for you, the number of years it took, and or months, and if you can offer any advise for fellow hubbers to help them learn of how you were able to accomplish such an achievement, then please do add whatever you think will indeed make it happen for them.
This is a great question Mike, and caused me to realize that I am unable to do accurate statistics going back 7 months when I joined HP.
My rounded numbers (after almost exactly 7 months are:
Hubs - 69
views this month with 3 days to go - 3,500
total views ever - 14,000, which results in an average of 2,000 views per month, and would take me 43 months to hit 100K.
BUT WE KNOW THAT'S WRONG. If you write hubs with regularity your page views increase for each month going forward, simply because older hubs dig into the search engines. As noted my views so far this month are 3,500, not 2,000. With a trailing average of say 3 months, you can then project forward and have a good handle on where you're going. This is basic business planning..
So I can't answer the question and nobody can unless you have kept careful stats at the end of each month. It would be great if HP could provide us with a month by month report going backwards
On your "My Account" page, at the top of the list of hubs, there is a graph that shows the level of traffic received over your time at HP
Thanks RF, and yuo I believe Reality Bytes got it correct, I located that stats page that's carefully hidden as well. I do indeed like the way you broke down you info here, it goes to show how everyone has a very differing experience here for sure.
I haven't but I can give you a relative figure on my own statistics. I just passed the 10,000 mark in 6 months.
I am not quite there, but I think it is only a matter of a month or two and I will be there. That would put me at a little less than 2 years. But to be fair. The first year to 15 months I was not very active on hubpages and only did about 10 hubs and then left it alone. I just started back actively working on hubpages about 3 months ago and that is when I've really seen my efforts really take off. I wouldn't say it is tough, but it does take work.
Advice would be to actually read the Learning Center. I mean really read it. There is some really great information. Be active in the forums. Research your topic and proofread. View it in the eyes of a reader and not the writer. Would you read it all the way through? Is this something you would even be looking for information on? The best hubs that get the most traffic are ones that generally answer a question. Also, I would suggest promoting your hubs outside of the hubpages network. Use twitter, facebook, myspace, squidoo, and other forums you are active in to drive traffic to hubpages. You can't just write a hub and then expect it to get hits.
Novel Treasures comments here should be required reading for a new hubber, especially about the Learning Center - it's essential.
Thanks for providing such a useful answer, I've done much of that I think what I need to do is work on my titling of my hubs, and my grammar from the start as well, but I have learned much from your input. Awesome relevant info! Novel Treasure
I am about half way to reaching the 100,000 hub views mark. I think the more hubs a hubber publishes that rank high on the google search engine the more hub views he/she can accumulate. This requires great content and keywords people search for on a regular basis. And sharing the published hubs on facebook, twitter, google+, pinterest and other such sites will help as well.
I won't live long enough to hit 100,000, I don't think. I'm a newbie who has been here 4 months. I've written 91 hubs and I am just getting ready to hit 5,000 views. I will say that as a newbie, I want to write good hubs so I've been spending a bit of time re-visiting my first hubs and since doing that, I've seen a remarkable increase in traffic.
I have 541,931, but I have been here almost 3 years. There are people that have accumulated many more than I have at that point. I working towards my first million. I hope it doesn't take 3 more years.
wow! Congrats! I have yet to reach my first 100,000 views mark. I am more active on Hub than I was when I first joined so things are looking up... Hope you reach your million soon...
I'm currently sitting at 53,000 and climbing however rfmoran is correct when he writes that the more hubs you publish and the more that you learn about creating traffic as you go forward the more page views you get.
It won't take me a year to get there and at this rate I should surpass the 100K level before the end of the year, if not sooner.
I know another writer that started at the same time I did who writes about beauty tips and other foo-foo topics and she is well over that mark and climbing towards a million.
If you're here to make money pick topics that will get tons of page views, if you're here for other purposes then page views may not be relevant.
You are 100% correct Somethgblue, wow! there are some pretty interesting people who chose to answer this question. Cool stuff, I like your hubs many of the ones I read a while back that is, and you are right about RF's thoughts on web progression.
Thanks for asking it because it gives us all a chance to see where and how we stack compared to other writers.
Yes, me too and I don't write that often anymore, but have been here 3 years - 4477,524 views.
Pamela please check your number. It's missing a comma or two.
Wow! 4 million+ holycrap I'm impressed, that is quite astonishing indeed. Nice! figure Pam congrat's on establishing yourself here on hubpages, and achieving such awesome web success as well, I'm sure it is well deserved.
wow! That's a lot of views in just three years. Quite impressive.
It might must have been a typo, but even 477,524 is still a grand achievement worth mentioning, and receiving high praise for accomplishing indeed. I'm currently approaching 73,000, one hub is pulling me up there though with close to 14,000 views.
I reached 100,000 views before my first year anniversary. I am right around 800,000 views as of today. Not being an expert, take my advice for what it is worth.
I have created my hubs to be relevant to each other, I create a web of links throughout my portfolio. My hubs all pretty much link to each other for the most part. I have two groups that I use, I receive a fair amount of traffic from these internal links. I have also received a substantial amount of traffic from social media (Facebook + Twitter), although I cannot tell what it is that motivates a user to share my hubs, I am grateful that they do.
Why it works, I do not know, but it does!
Impressive technique, I have done the same thing, but I broke up most of my hubs into groups under differing subjects. I have no clue how some hubs get much more traffic then others, they all are constructed about the same, when it comes to SEO.

I’ve been reading many questions on the forums about how to get more traffic to your hubs. I’m a great believer in testing something, analysing the results, refining and sharing, and I approached the subject of how to get hub views in a practical methodical way. I’ll share my techniques below...

Sorry for attention seeking, I just wanted to point out that after time your hubs will reap the traffic you aimed for when bookmarking and backlinking them! I was up over 600 views a day yesterday

I'm relatively new to Hubpages, and so far I've published three articles. However, the view numbers are pretty small, and I'd like to increase them. I'm currently writing some more Hubs right now, but any tips that you'd like to share, I'd really appreciate them

Anyone noticed their hub views taking a noticeably huge drop today? I see blue arrows everywhere!
