Just wondering if there's any point in trying to get internal views (yes I know the money comes from google etc, which is where 75% of my hits are from.)
But how long an article is viewed for by another hubber for instance - does that increase the chance of good ranking with google or is that based on external views only?
No, it is based on all the views - but so far I did not see any indication of this measure bearing a significant weight in SERPs calculations - though it will be logical to assume at some point it will have more weight.
Any views (including internal) are also useful because they do increase both your hub score and your author score, moving your hubs and your profile higher in all those hot-last-best lists, which gives you slightly more internal link juice. Still of minor importance, yet with fierce competition every tiny bit counts.
Thanks for the reply. Forgot about this thread because I post far too much on the forums and then forget to check back.
Good to know that they're worth something!
So WryLilt, for you it all comes down to the economical value of "internal views"? If I read one of your hubs, I am an "internal view generator"? If that is your attitude, I find that somewhat wanting.
No, I also see internal views as good for feedback and internal links.
However I know that a lot of new hubbers and even some old hubbers actively chase internal views so I wanted to know whether they had any worth at all when it comes to traffic which means money.
First and foremost I want money. So shoot me.
You and I live on different planets. Thanks for clarifying.
I follow your posts with interest, WE. You always write interesting stuff and great answers. However...
I love to write. I also love being a mum. Right now hubpages is one of the main ways I can see myself earning enough money (and learning enough about internet and SEO) to stay home and do both - so I'm working as hard and fast as I can.
I've got no problem helping people out if they're in need of advice or information. I do my share of hub hopping etc. But unlike a lot of people I'd rather say up front why I'm on hp - for money!
No problem, WryLilt. We'll still be in the same Solar system.
Go WryLilt - good job sticking up for yourself. I am a ruthless money hubber - only work online to make money. If I don't pull in a set amount each month I will need to go back out to work either missing evenings and weekends with my family, or putting kids in with a childminder.
Stick to it girl. When your littl 'un is at achool you can be there for every pick up, drop off, sports day, school play - every special moment, because you work for yourself.
I'm watching your progress with interest - I think we can learn from each other.
I would say it depends on the post.
As Misha noted, getting to the top of the lists is useful, but it is easy to see that there are hubs that could be steady money earners from Google search but are unlikely to be read by other hubbers.
A different hub might be very popular here and that can get you out in the real world. It doesn't happen every day, but I have tweeted and facebooked hubs I thought were unusual and interesting to my "peeps".
If a thousand other hubbers did the same thing to the same hub, that hubber just got a tremendous amount of real world promotion.
Good point. I guess it is probably one hub in a thousand though!
I don't know.
I have done that at least three times and I do not think I have read a thousand hubs. I also link to others hubs - not for "Hub Karma" but because the link makes sense.
I am quite certain that there are hubbers here who never read anyone elses hub, would never link to anyone else and would never even think of tweeting another hubbers work, but I do not know if they are the majority.
If they are, then it is probably more like one in a million or worse. If more people are like me, the chances are much, much better.

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)....

It is said that organic traffic (Google, Bing, Yahoo, etc) should be our goal for increasing and maintaining real traffic. I've read in the forums that we shouldn't become dependent upon getting a lot of HP traffic, nor discouraged if our hubs are not being read by the HP community. However, I've...

Having been with Hubpages for getting on two years now, and having penned 83 Hubs, I think it's time I threw the towel in. Over that time, I conscientiously stuck to all the rules and guidelines, and was rewarded by views gradually rising to around 350 per day with earnings around $25 per month. I...

The few followers I have report to me that they do not receive notification that a new hub is published or featured. When I contacted HubPages help directly by email they told me that the messages were probably in the spam box of the followers. That is not the case. Anyone else having (or had) this...
