Optimizing Hubs: how many hubs do you have that get 100 page views a day?
I thought I was doing well until I read the latest exhortation from HP staff to analyse my hubs. Evidently a hub is only thought to be doing well if it gets 100 ‘hits’ a day. Uh-oh! Is everyone else getting this number of views to a large number of hubs?
No, it doesn’t read like that. The piece says you need to check your stats to see which of your hubs get 100 hits a day … then you need to analyse that hub and replicate the way it is put together on your other hubs.
I have 5 hubs that get 100 -200+ views a month but only one that gets 100+ a day - about muesli of all things! It does not have all the gizmos HP insists a hub should have. So why is it consistently at the top? It just gives the info. .. that’s why.
I have 126 Hubs as of this very minute, and only three of them are getting around a hundred hits a day. They're all on different subjects, so it's kind of hard to duplicate the type of article. They're also not among my highest scoring Hubs, either. Most of my other Hubs get between 3 and 15 hits a day.
Angie, one of the things that makes the AP so useful is that you learn things and can go back and reevaluate your older Hubs with the lessons you've learned. I've gotten a lot more traffic since I started working on older ones.
However, I have many Infobarrel articles, written on topics similar to my hubs' topics, that do get 100+ views per day.
If you are deciding which subjects are worth writing about and which are duds, don't be too discouraged by hubs with little traffic. The platform you're writing on could have more to do with it than the actual content.
I have a slew of hubs that have had less than 100 hits, ever! Does that mean that they are wrong and do not serve a purpose? No. They do not need to be deleted and substituted for something more popular. If your dog has demodectic mange, acne, or is put on a drug like Slentrol, you might find these hubs helpful. The Slentrol hub, for instance, is on the first page of Google, but the information is not searched for that often. I also have a few hubs that are getting more than 100 page views per day. They serve their purpose, provide the information that is being searched for, and cannot be made into a larger number of hubs. (Georgie and I started about the same time and have similar statistics. I wonder if part of the performance is not due to the time a hub is available on a search engine?)
My three top performers were published in April, May and June, pretty much right after I started. I'm starting to see the traffic pick up on others now, however. Maybe they've aged enough to be shared by Google?
I’m coming to rely on you for a lucid answer to things on HP and a clear explanation as to how things really might work here, Mark. You seem to cut through the HP hype and continual jollying exhortations that often make one feel like a failure.
To me this seems like an impossibility. Say someone had 100 hubs x 100 views per day would equal 10,000 total views per day in which it would only take them 10 days to reach 100,000. I would love to know if anyone is even close to doing this? So, I would say to not worry about it, this is impossible.
Put like that, yes … it is extremely unlikely : ) I suspect only a few of us have a large number of hubs that make 100 views per day … perhaps someone will now tell me I’m wrong and they have loads of hubs that regularly make 100 views a day
I am following someone (whitney05) who has had over 10million views, but with about 1000 hubs. I guess it is impossible but I do not know how quickly those views are happening, or if she has that many getting 100/day. Not for us mere mortals!
The internet is a big place. You would only need one great hub to get 100 page views a day. First concentrate on the quality of the hub and once you're happy with the hub it's all about promoting. Promoting is super important. If you don't promote it's a waste of a great hub!
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...
Hi all,I've been here a month now and have 20 hubs, but when I read some of the forum posts I am worried that my traffic is low. I have had around 680 views total for all of my 20 hubs which averages about 6 per day for...
I get a bit confused while I see someone talking about big earner hubs. What is a big earner hub... in the sense that it gets a lot of page views, not in terms of high paying keywords embedded in it? Let me be a bit...
