This question is for you veteran hubbers. How much traffic do you tend to get from Google vs. HubPages vs. your blogs or other sources?
I guess, ideally, I would like a good # of views from Google as this would mean that new people are finding me and reading my stuff. I'm starting to learn some ways to get Google traffic, but I'm curious to see just how substantial it is for veteran hubbers.
I don't do a lot of promotion, so I have very little traffic that comes from blogs or other sites. 85% of my traffic comes from search engines, especially Google.
Some of my hubs get a lot of traffic from Google and some don't hardly get any at all. However, I'd have to say my better performing hubs get traffic from a wider variety of sources rather than just one or two.
I think, you are lucky if all this traffic came to your hubs. Because, everyone who writes blogs wants that people read it. If nobody read it, it's sad, why write it then?
Actually Mark isn't lucky - he's a hard working excellent writer who knows what to write about to attract traffic. I have ended up concentrating on HP over my blogs as its much easier to be read and commented on here if you participate in the community write useful articles and do a bit of basic promotion you will get traffic -don't believe that its "luck" though!
I would love just 1% of this top score. My highest views for my best 1 article is 700 all time score
Need lot more hard work......
This is embarrassing---until this minute I didn't even realize where my traffic comes from! I was shocked to see how much of it came from search engines!
What is even more embarrassing is, I write weekly copy for this guy in the UK describing websites that teach you how to increase web traffic. Have I USED any of these ideas for my own work? Noooooo.... Maybe I should rethink that!
Nice info Mark. I agree stumble upon can be a great help in obtaining traffic
My highest rated hubs all draw most of their traffic from outside Hubpages. My figures are similar to Marks in terms of proportions although his traffic per Hub is considerably higher than mine.
Inidentally, I admire Mark not because of his traffic but because of his cruel treatment of spammers. Incidentally spammers on hubpages may soon be an endangered species, thanks to Maddie Rudd. I suggest we set up a small sanctuary and keep a few of them for entertainment purposes and a warning to genuine content writers of what happens if your heart is ruled by the $£ !
That's a lot of google traffic per hub, Mark! Way to go. I'm crunching numbers and my incoming google visitors / hub is dwarfed by yours. Any tips on how to increase search engine traffic, or is it just about writing hubs that people are likely to look for (like your tech comparisons)?

Download the book and read it. I think it is one of the best books written on the subject, and hands down plain the best one for beginners.
I am not so sure this is a lot of traffic.
Stumble traffic is worthless in terms of income. But of you want to know how to get lots of it, pay SunSeven a visit.
Misha, and others here are much better guides to generating traffic. I just write the stuff and leave a few links around. My bad according to some
You have about 5 x the traffic I get, but you also have about 3 x as many hubs. But the distribution among sources is very similar. It wasn't at first though. It takes a few months for the SEs to outgrow the hubpages traffic.
I'm happy to know that the ratio changes over time. I've been on Hubpages 3 months and most of my traffic still comes from within the HP community,especially for the first 3 or 4 days. Seems to take a couple of weeks for things to settle down to a nice small but steady number of hits and that's when the SE hits start. I can't for the llife of me figure this all out and am just watching and trying to tweak keywords, titles, content etc. to optimize, but I really don't know what I am doing.
Do more hubs make a difference? I've not been very prolific and am wondering if number of hubs written can possibly make a difference in search engine traffic. Obviously you have written many more than I have--and Mark is off the charts(Kudos Mark )
There is mine but I just included the Search Engines and Hub Pages. I have a lot of other Traffic Sources also that I have developed and continue to develop on my own.
Notice the amount of Google Image Traffic I get and Hub Pages sends me huge traffic which I am grateful for. Blacked out one is one of my private sources.
Very interesting! Thank you for sharing you data.
Most of mine comes from search engines. I've also developed some other sources of traffic.
Thanks guys for all of your replies. This was exactly the type of information I was interested in. Thank you Mark and crazyhorse for posting your actual numbers, much appreciated. Hopefully, one day I will be able to share similar numbers.

If a hub is not featured does that mean that it doesn't get any search engine traffic from Google or other search engines?
by aa lite 9 years ago
This might be a complete co-incidence, but I switched to the new profile a couple of days ago, and today Google is pretending it doesn't know me. Hubs that ranked on the first page for main keyword are not found in the first 10 pages. Even more worrying, I can't find them in Google even...

Why do some hubs mostly get Hubpages traffic and other hubs Google traffic?Why does this happen? It seems some hubs are more popular with Hubpages community, but don't get good traffic with Google, and some have barely any Hubpages views, but score good with Google.

I been on a couple of days and pretty much all my traffic is from hubpages. I get a couple from digg but that is about it. How are people getting their traffic from google and other search engine?
by Polly C 12 years ago
Where does my traffic come from?I joined Hubpages about a week ago and have had 69 views. However, my traffic source tells me that only 47 come from Hubpages and does not give any source for the others. Are they from search engines? I'm not sure as I would expect it to list Google or...

How is it that a hub on the 'common mistakes new hubbers make' can suddenly become not featured, in spite of the fact it has had 9 views in a day, 24 views in 7 days and 35 views in the last 30 days? I only replied to comments on it both 42 hours ago and 22 hours ago (from two different hubbers)....
