When talking about views on an article, what is considered good?
And I realize good is subjective.
I think a hub that has at least 2,000 views is good. The only hubs I have that are or have been featured all have over 2,000 views.
Are you talking about daily views or overall? If daily, 350 views per day is awesome but i never hit there.
Well, if you use wordsmith2418 criteria, only 37 of my 207 hubs would be worthy of the title 'good'.
However if you consider that most of the topics I write about, the majority of writers wouldn't touch if you paid them and then use my criteria of at least 500 page views while maintaining a featured status, then 127 of my 207 hubs could be considered good.
Meaning I have 127 featured Hubs that range from 500 PVs to 28,000 PVs and of those 10 are over 5,000 PVs and half of those are over 10,000 PVs.
For me trying to write evergreen hubs is the best way to accomplish this, which of course requires in-depth research.
However if I switched from conspiracy articles to foo-foo pieces such as recipes, dog grooming and How To create your own arts & crafts articles I would probably do much better but would have eaten the barrel of a gun long ago.
The other consideration is that before Google put the hammer down on Hub Pages a few years ago, I was easily getting a 1,000 PVs a day with half as many Hub articles, now I'm happy with a 100 a day.

Right now, while a Hub is pending, it doesn't show ads, it has a "no follow" tag etc. However our followers get notified and they may share the Hub during that time. It would be nice if that notification could be delayed, too.

I have finally published a hub that has been deemed unfeatured. I can only direct my attention to a table I inserted which was long when viewed on the mobile platform. Grammar is checked, titles tweaked, content is solid as its in the same vein as my other articles. Do you think this could be it?...

One of my game guides gets 100 views a week, even though the game came out in 2014. When I wrote it, I didn't really think it'd do as well as it is. Have any of your articles done surprisingly well?

I recently had a hub un-featured for engagement, as the half-circle indicates. I think this is an unfair practice and should be eliminated entirely. Here's why I feel this way:Our hub traffic is often affected by the time of year, holidays, seasons, and current events to name a few. If left alone,...

Lately I have noticed how most of my articles that have been there for a long time, are being marked as not featured. And even after trying to "fix" them they are placed in the same stage over and over again. Considering the kind of "pay" we get for our effort, it seems kind of...

I have not been in this blog platform for a while ...but every time I return there so many issues that seem to be a problem. Why when my articles were okay before when they were posted are they now not good content. This does not make sense to me. I believe my work was standard...
