Okay, I know it's not like hitting 1,000 per day! But for me, it's very good. I started on HubPages about a year and a half ago, after Examiner.com went to all pop culture stuff. I had 29 articles on there and was working on the 30th when they made their change. I found HubPages and like it much better. But I've posted only 3 articles, because of some health issues and forays into social action. But I'm starting back to work on articles for this site. I recently edited the one that was not on a niche site, and it was accepted quickly. Since then my views have increased rapidly. So I recommend everyone writing on here to get all your aritcles onto niche sites. Celebrate with me--I've just passed 1500 views!
It takes time to build a site here, but if you just keep at it, in time you'll do OK. I started a second site about 3 years ago and it's just now starting to get some views and a bit of money. The fact that your hub got moved quickly to a niche site is a very good sign.
You're off to a good start, Janda! Keep on writing.
Congratulations! You can get more views by aligning your titles with keywords to search for. People are not going to search for 'How to go and why?" They might search for 'best holiday' 'exotic vacation,' etc.
Nice job. I would focus on trying to get articles on the network sites like you said. That is what is really bringing me in views. You have three articles on travel so maybe look at the Wonder Wisdom editorial guidelines and write more for that network.
From my experience, articles on niche sites receive a lot more views than those that are not. Congrats on your victory.
It's very very hard to get going, but as you go along you get more and more data which shows you what works best for you, and you should do more of what is working best, and continually analyse your stats to see where to go from there. That's at least what I've always done, not that I'm the master of Hubpages, but I do steadily do better and better. Congrats!
Like TIMETRAVELER2, I started a second site here about 4 years ago and it is starting to get good views. Almost all of the articles are on niche sites and that sure helps. So just keep writing and getting on niche sites and I believe in time you will be happy with your success.
Thanks, y'all, for your encouragement! So, I'm a little puzzled by what you mean here, TimeTraveler2 and ThelmaC. What do you mean, y'all started second sites here. So do you mean you write under another "name" or on another topic or what? What is the advantage to doing that? And EricFarmer8x, thanks for the link to wanderwisdom's editorial policy. All three of my articles are now on WanderWisdom, and I have read their editorial policy, but it has been a while, so I'll definitely review it! Always good info here!
Even better news--my views jumped to 17 yesterday! I appreciate any of you who checked out my articles! My latest to get on WanderWisdom had 8 views! Yay! Every little bit helps. :-)
As you can see, participating in forums occasionally can help get some views.
Also its a good place to get answers and ideas. Commenting on the articles of others is another way to start getting acquainted, and letting people know you are here.
It is important to celebrate these little milestones. I remember when I first came to HP I was fascinated by watching my numbers each day, celebrating each new "all time high." Then I had to learn to accept the ups and downs, and not get too dejected when my numbers dipped.
After six years here, I am very happy with how things have progressed. I still get excited when I surpass my old personal best.
This question about articles being on a niche site for better views is something that continues to puzzle me. I have read here again and again that an article must be on a niche site to garner increased viewership (if this word is correct).
I'm a new hubber with only 18 published articles. I'm publishing my 19th article later today. All my articles are in niche sites except for one. The article is politics/Where-is-Hell-New-Theory-Will-Surprise-You has not made it to a niche site and I was told that it was rejected by editors for various reasons. Without knowing exactly what the reasons are (they sent me a form letter saying so) I presumed that it may be due to it being somewhat of a controversial nature because of religious conotations. I have since reworked the article removing anything/everything that may be of controversial nature and did some grammatical and spelling corrections. I have resubmitted the article to the editors and I'm awaiting their response.
What makes me wonder is that this article has not made it to a niche site and has been in publication only 17 days and yet it has the most page views of all my other articles that have been on niche sites for many more weeks. What does this tell me? That being in a niche is not all that important for good page views? I've raised this question in another thread and with no exception all responses indicated that an article must be on a niche site to garner good page views.
Doesn't this experience tell us that the subject matter of an article is the most important element in getting high page views? That it does not matter whether it is in a niche or not?
Once again I would like to poll those of you who have been in HP for much longer that me if you have experienced this same issue.
Some articles on Hubpages.com do just fine. Others do better on the network sites. I'm always happy when mine are moved. Don't worry about it, just accept the traffic with a happy face
Edit: Also have you checked where the traffic is coming from? Go to the page, click on Stats/referrers.

I have been pleased with the audience and revenue for my articles on HubPages since joining the site some years ago.I commend the company for creating the successful niche sites at a time when similar sites were folding. My existing articles that moved to those sites have done even better than...

Hi,Do more experienced Hubbers have any useful tips for getting your article moved to a niche site? I kept seeing advice that goes something like "make sure you write a high-quality article" but it just seems so vague to me. I have 9 articles now and the only one that was moved to a niche...

Hi thereI've had a couple of hubs that for the last few years had been getting a steady 250 plus views per day. Over the last few months I've watched them slide to what seems a bottoming out at around 100 views per day. In one hub about ten days ago I got stuck in and added another 2000 words of...

I am uncertain if this same situation has happened to other writers, but I am wondering about why it seems hubpages has become a second-class citizen in its own network. I've written articles here for the last decade and been happy with it for the most part. In the last year or so,...

I noticed that hubs in niche sites no longer include the "More by this author" section below the hub. Is this just an oversight or was it a decision to drop it on niche sites?

I recived a note from HubPages an article is eligible for a niche site. The notes at the bottom stated to check grammar. I have done corrections using grammarly and one other editing software. The question is do I wait for them to review or do I go through the process of submitting to a niche site?
