    My Avatar thingy came up 8 months yesterday, I'm really starting to feel more like part of the furniture around here smile
    My traffic has been rising, hopefully it will continue to boom and the lesser popular ones I can edit and they will rise too. Anyone else had any similar experiences with less popular hubs not picking up?

      All accounts taken into consideration I've been here I think about 7 months. And over half my hubs never get views from HP let alone google. I keep meaning to go back and clean them up...

      Most of my views come from about 15 of my hubs. I get about 550-700 views a day. I'm waiting for the "big pickup" that older hubbers keep promising arrives in September!

        WryLilt, I think we all have that experience. The fact is, sometimes we just pick a poor niche in spite of what keyword research might say. 

        I remember reading one of Sunforged Hubs where he said, if you're going to work on improving your Hubs and promoting them, focus on your successful Hubs first, not your unsuccessful ones - because they're the ones that have the best potential.  At least I think that's what he meant!

      You feel like furniture after only eight months?  My four year anniversary will be the last day of this month.  When I started, the site was still in its beta test phase.

    Not really here for the hub writing... just like the forums.

    I've been here 16 months, but that time is somewhat deceptive.  I wrote a few hubs in the first month and disappeared for six months before returning to write here consistently.  I certainly have some hubs that are dogs and are in need of some extra work.... it would be nice to see them pull their weight.
