What do you consider good traffic for your hub?

    I was just wondering what hubbers considered as "good traffic" to one of your hubs? Some of my hubs only get a handful of reads a week, while others get consistently 75-100 reads a day. After looking at my hubs I think that getting 25-50 reads a day is decent. My hub topics vary greatly - and I think that accounts for the "unevenness" of the traffic, but I'm fine with that because some of my hubs were written, well just because. You writers know what I mean!
    What do other hubbers think?

      I have currently 59 Hubs and after 3 months I am only starting to see above 50 hits each and every day to all my hubs. Maybe I am doing something wrong. I am currently doing a review on a SEO optimisation website, maybe I will see a benefit from this who knows.

        For me, 75-100/day is good traffic for a hub. But every little bit helps. Some of my hubs have been producing more like 20/day for several years. Every once in a while for some unknown reason I get several hundred hits on a single hub. Maybe that's what's meant by going viral. My highest volume hub is titled "Unemployment Compensation Information for Claimants"--59,000 hits in 3 years, thanks to high unemployment in Michigan. Currently, my second best hub is "Michigan Governor's Race-2010." It's been averaging close to 100/day. It ranks second only to the Wikipedia entry on the Michigan governor's election. It's just a daily aggregation of articles from several Michigan newspapers and other publications. One of the candidates is advertising on the site.

      Dorsi, you asked such a good question.

      I have a few Hubs that show 50 to 75 views per day or more. Interestingly, these Hubs do not have the highest Hub scores. The traffic coming to them is strictly organic, meaning from search engines.  Apparently Google and Yahoo searchers love roast beef and Russian dressing.

      I do wish all of my Hubs would generate these numbers.

      Also interesting is that these high-view Hubs are not always the ones that generate the most AdSense income.

      It's all a mystery to me, but I would love it if each of my Hubs generated that kind of traffic.

        Oh I know what you mean Sally - one of my better performing hubs is on getting skunk smell off your dog...lol!! But I don't have analytics set up so I really don't know where the money is coming from!

          lol    One of my better performers is about yellow finger- and toe- nails (which, by the way, I don't have).   lol   I kind of hate that I wrote it because it's disgusting, and yet it's near the top of the list in my account, reminding me that I wrote such a disgusting thing in response to a request (ages ago).  hmm  (Apparently, a lot of people want to know about yellow nails.  hmm  )

      I agree anything over 50 a day is ok and im happy,although at the moment i have 5 hubs that get between 150-250 a day and one that was getting 1000 a day but has now dropped down to 600 a day!!!,keep at it

      Well I get over 500 hits on one hub per day - HOWEVER as this is an informational hub, where most surfers are coming for the information on the hub and are not particularly interested in anything else (google Ads, Amazon Ads) etc. then I don't consider this decent traffic.

      On average most of my 'decent' websites get between 0 and 20 hits a day - these are the ones that I should concentrate on in terms of SEO etc!

      I'm with you, love.
      I have one hub that gets over 100 hits a day, and the rest often have zeros. A good day if 5 hits or more on most. Maybe my SEO skills are woeful. I do believe I make a better songwriter....

        I have over 100 hubs and I am yet to see any of them get up 100 views a day. To me 50 views is awesome. I think everyone here is doing fantastic.

        Hi Myownworld and Daniel, you both make me feel a whole lot better about my hub daily views. Sometime I read about those who have some phenomenal numbers and it makes me feel like I failed somewhere in my promotional efforts. It's not that I don't wish others well, it's just that I really try hard to promote my work. I tweet, I started back linking recently, and yes it helps, but nothing close to some of those phenomenal reports I sometimes hear about. I would be so happy just to see one of my hubs hit 500 views total.

    Anything more than 25 views a day for each hubpage is a good goal to aim for and to keep a check on your best hubpages is the best thing you can do, because knowing your best pages is great for further promotions of your work, but also so you can identify your weaker hubpages which may need optimizing further.

    My weaker hubs, I've been going through researching keywords for changing the tags and just playing around with the titles of all the modules and content within....it's all fun!

    My hub traffic seems to be flailing wildly at the moment.

    Traffic is all relative anyway.

    For some of my keywords the overall Google daily searches is at 50 searches a day, however teh hub itself which targets the keyword gets around 25 visitors a day, and that in turn makes me around 2-4 sales a day (I assume Hubpages gets another one or two as well!)

    The traffic isn't much, but it guarantees me a nice little daily income which I would not otherwise have!

    relacheposted 8 years ago

    If you take my total Hubs and divide that number into my average daily traffic levels, it comes out to 30 views per Hub per day.

    33 of my 179 Hubs get that much traffic or more.

    I'll be happy with anything 100+ per hub. I tend to get spikes when people link to my hubs from other sites, that usually creates a rather healthy bump in page views for that day or two.

    I think earnings doesn't necessarily depend on traffic since I have one hub which is gets well over 100 views per day and yet earns less than one which gets about 20 or 30 views a week. 

    Having said that, I now aim for each and every one of my new hubs to achieve 10 views per day as a bare minimum.

    If you have around 300 hubs, an average of 25000 page views per day will be a good target. smile

    I am a new hubber having 49 hubs at present. My average page view per day is 50 and 90 percent of those are from hubpages only. I have no knowledge of keyword research, is there any free tool available for keyword research? sad

      Try this:


      Or, if you're using firefox, download SEOQuake.

      Good luck!

    Some of my hubs that only get a few hundred views a month still bring in ten or more dollars a month from Adsense. High paying keywords and modest page views can work.

    A couple of days ago I would have said use the \Google external adwords tool. I haven't had time to look at Google'd new adwords targeting tool (if that is what it is called), so I don't know what to say, cupid52.

    My best hub is around 50 a day but some of the lower traffic hubs earn more because the keywords are more valuable.  It is easy to get 100 or more hits a day (eg girly or 'hot' aunty picture hubs)but difficult to turn that into AdSense clicks with any significant value.

    My plan is to write a hot aunty hub with high value keywords - hot aunties play naughty with an Ipad for example.  (Note to self: - invite some hot friends around for the photo shoot!) smile

    At initial stage I will consider 25-50 hits per hub a good traffic.

    And here I thought I was doing good.

    Most of my hubs are in the single digits daily. But I've recently surpassed 100 visitors a day across all hubs.

      I understand how you feel, I pretty much have many hubs in the single digits daily. Let's look on the bright side we both have hubber rankings in the 90's so we must be doing something right.

    Shadesbreathposted 7 years ago

    My two best traffic hubs get 100 or so a day, and I have a few others in the 20-50 range.   But they aren't my favorites at all.  My good stuff gets hardly anything sad

    I really need to find the discipline to crank out some 400 - 800 word hubs on stuff I like that could sell instead of 2,000-3,000 word diatribes.  I just don't like anything that isn't already written about 100,000,000,000 times.  Sarcasm doesn't pay well at all.  (sigh) 

    But it's fun big_smile

      You got a hubber rank of 100 so you must be doing something right.
