Are you happy when you see that somebody has read one of your slower hubs?
I'm always presently surprised when one of my slower hubs gets a little traffic, even just one view, lol. I'm like, "Wow, somebody's actually reading that?" It's especially a hoot when it's organic traffic. Do you get the same kick out of unexpected traffic?
Yes! I am always thrilled when someone reads one of my slower hubs - particularly when it's one that has been sitting for so long I know it's about to be unfeatured! It is also fun to see (or at least guess) what generated the unexpected traffic. Sometimes, by looking at my stats I can figure out what caused people to start searching for my topics (e.g. something related going on in the media). Other times, I haven't got a clue. But I am still so happy; even if, like you said, it was just one view.
Oh, for sure! I love that we can now highlight our hubs. Sometimes I will put those to be highlighted that I had published when I first started writing here on HubPages and surprisingly, they have since been read many times, and much to my delight. Some of my first writes mean the most to me, so it is good that they are able to get another chance, for when we first join, not many know of us and read our work until much later.
Yes, it could make the difference in the reader's life. That person can be searching for a topic that'll give a better understanding about something. I'm sure that all hub writers will be happier. Thanks
Beyond. I love to see traffic on any of my hubs. I can only dream that one day I will have a big fan base. Until them I jump for joy when I gets reads, compliments, and followers. I mean I write, cause I like to. Having anyone actually read my stuff makes ms feel good.
I am the same, it makes me happy that someone may be getting some benefit from my hub especially if it is a slow one, new one, or a favourite of mine. Even though I have been on here for almost 18 months and get reasonable traffic now, I still get a kick out of the fact that people read what I write about.
Yes I do. Knowing one lone soul has passed by and visited makes me think along the lines of....Wow, that uselessly slow hub I wrote months ago on the Habits of The Yellow Spotted One Legged TreeHopper has managed to attract a human being. What's going on!!! I often think about deleting the slow slow ones but haven't got around to it yet.
Indeed!!-- and for some reason, lately I've had several comments on some infrequently viewed hubs. Interesting, since I have removed several low-performing hubs . I think the thing is-- it is hard to be objective, yourself, about if a hub is "good" or not. Traffic does not always equal quality.
I have a hub that, to my surprise, every once in a while gets a new view. It's about why Michael Vick would stay the Philadelphia Eagles QB. Well, that whole thing is totally moot at this stage of the season, and I fully expect views to settle in at zero. So, when I do get a new view, I guess I'm more befuddled than anything else. I'm gratified with a slow mover getting views when it seems to portend a positive trend.
Hi everyone,I'd love to hear how you are using HP for your SEO efforts. Any tips or suggestions? I run a celebrity gossip site and use links from my hubs to feed traffic. I also have so e customized ads that I created...
I was under the impression that we could only submit one hub every two weeks for niche sites. I submitted a hub and an editor replied with changes that I needed to make before it could be moved. As I'm...
I log on every day, and it seems that I always find negative things popping up in the forums. I am sorry that so many people are struggling on HubPages. From SEO issues to having popular hubs unfeatured for a multitude...
Just wanted to share this. Someone pinned or "flipped" one of my hubs on Flipboard, a magazine site. So I've had a ton of traffic all morning. I made my own magazine and the traffic magnified even more!...
