    With the event of me approaching 1 million hub views in a few days or so, this gives me the chance to reflect back and see what I did to increase my traffic and revenues through Hubpages.

    What really started the ball rolling was the very first Hubchallenge back in May 2009 and I've since done 4 or 5 hubchallenges since then and 1 60 day challenge which I have yet to start any serious promotion on them 30 hubpages.

    So really you might say that I've only really been here for nearly 2 years.

    I see the upcoming years with hubpages to be very profitable, now I've got to go back through over 600 hubpages and sort some of them out tags, titles, extra content, cos some are just duds!

    Gonna be busy....cheers now!

      Wayne, I have to do that too.

      But perhaps consider doing this after the Christmas rush, and instead slap out some more sales pages smile

      Then begin the process of strengthening your portfolio for 2011. This is what I am going to be doing.

      Right now, I am using my energy to concentrate on potential bonus Amazon sales in anticipation of the biggest part of the year smile

      Oh and congrats on the views.

        Yeah I'm going to try and squeeze in some Christmas hubs this week or the next and concentrate more on Ebay and Amazon, maybe experiment with the layouts again....Cheers now!

      Hey, congratulations, 1 million views is a big number to reach! I am slowly getting there, I haven't dedicated as much time to hubpages over the last couple of months as I should have though, so my traffic has unfortuantely slowed down sad

      I gotta ask, you really going to go through 600+ hubs when you could be writing new ones? Man you got better self discipline then I if you do tongue

      1. waynet profile image70
        waynetposted 8 years agoin reply to this

        I'll be writing new hubpages whilst going through my 600+ hubs....once I get to a nice fat 1000 hubpages I can properly sort everything out...I've already made sure everything is grouped and categorized...it's just the tags I want to go through and add my own images on every hubpage, it'll be quite a task, but it's needed to create my own proper stamp on my hubpages.

        I've nearly finished backing up every hubpage on an external hard drive, just in case anything happens to Hubpages, not that it will, but you never know!

          waynet, join the club!

          My biggest regret since joining hubpages is that I didn't begin using the 'Groups' feature from the start.

          Attempting to put 600 hubs into nice little groups is an absolute nightmare!

          I am then interlinking all of the hubs in each group, the idea being that the stronger hubs in each group will help revive the weaker ones.

          I am using my referral tracker for these internal links (which I believe is fair dues, seeing as the alternative is no page leaks whatsoever).

          That way, those that dont leave via an ad or capsule are tempted into visiting another of my hubs. If they still dont leave via an ad or capsule, then they can jolly off around the site wherever they wish for a couple of hours - hopefully deciding to become click happy at some stage!

          Call it internal optimisation if you like. I am already seeing big rises in AdSense impressions, Hubpages page views, and more visits to my Amazon pages. Internal linking and groups now play a big part in my strategy. It would be very short sighted of Hubpages to do away with internal linking incentives, put it that way wink

          Not sure if u are familiar with groups, but the reader can flick through each hub in the group by clicking some arrows near the comments box! Not sure how effective this is, but any browsing is a bonus!

          1. waynet profile image70
            waynetposted 8 years agoin reply to this

            Yeah I sure hope Hubpages don't do away with the linking incentives either on our hubpages or profile pages.

            That sounds like a great linking solution, I'm trying more video to get people to stay on the page and arrange capsules in a more experimental fashion now. If I can get my bounce rates down a bit, then maybe they will click an ad or go buy something.....onwards and upwards! smile

    Cheers all!

    Been feeling inspired by lots of hubbers on here over the months and years and it's been a fun week this week in particular as I can now focus on combining hubpages with more YouTube videos and might add a few Revver videos too.

    Great job!

    One million views is an amazing milestone to reach, and one that all Hubbers should strive for.

    View goals are much easier and better for the brain than monetary goals. Set goals with views and the money will come close behind.

    smile

    Again, awesome job!

    Heya and G'Day Wayne,

    Well Don Old Chap,

    One million views, your now part of an exclusive club that will most likely see more members joining over the next twelve months.

    I raise my glass and my hat to you on this auspicious occasion.

    Now, how is it going with getting one million fans? lol

    Good on ya, mate, good on ya!

    Wow, Waynet, congratulations!!! It is so inspiring to read from you guys who are already where most of us want to be one day, and knowing that everything is possible.

    I reached my first 1.000 views a few days ago and so I only have 999.000 views to go. Given that there are millions of people connected to the web, this should be reachable one day...

    Hope your monthly income from Hubpages reflects this success, too!

    1. waynet profile image70
      waynetposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      Cheers now!

      My earnings from hubpages are rising and I can see a noticeable increase. Now if I can increase my daily traffic, which is now around 3400 views a day, my goal is double this in the next 2-3 months or so.

  32. Spacey Gracey profile image37
    Spacey Graceyposted 8 years ago

    Will you double your traffic with more hubs, on-page SEO, backlinks ??????

    Your traffic has made me feel better - its about 6 views per day per hub, which is pretty much what mine has settled on. But my views are over such a small number of popular hubs it makes me really nervous I won't be able to replicate the success. Just gotta keep plugging away I guess.

    1. waynet profile image70
      waynetposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      I am continuing to write hubpages until I get to a nice neat 1000 and then stop for awhile to catch up, which will probably take a good few months to check tags and do backlinks and just promote the hell out of them and then I will also go back to the dud hubpages that have never had any traffic except the couple of visits they had when first published.

      I do plan on focusing on my blogs more in the future as I control them more and they need a bit of care as they might feel like they've been neglected the last couple of years.

      I'll have to check how many hubpages of mine are actually getting good traffic every day, because it's these that will increase in traffic and earnings over time.

  41. waynet profile image70
    waynetposted 8 years ago

    Yeah, the next phase is pretty much planned out well into the next year....and that plan includes me just writing new hubpages until I've reached 1000 and then I'll stop for a while, maybe 6 months to a year, so that I can concentrate on promotion of all of my efforts and also my blogs too, because the next phases of business will include at least 3 of them blogs.

    Who'd have thought that writing and creating online content and videos would result in actually producing income online...I sure didn't think so over 3 years ago that's for sure!

    Cheers now!
