Suggested Feature-Stat Page for Items Under Hub Metrics

    A feature I would find handy is having all of the Hub Metrics data (word count, revenue potential, incoming links, view duration, date published (already on other stat pg) and short url) found on another stat page.  It could even be called "Hub Metrics". This one page would have all of your hubs listed on it similar to the "My Account" page we have now.

    As far as I know, the only way to see this data is to click on each hub and click on the stats of that hub.  This can take awhile on the 300+ hubs I have. 

    It would be nice to be able to take them all and sort them by each of those factors so that I can concentrate my efforts on increasing the word count on those under a certain amount, or work on backlinking those with fewer than the maximum (5 isn't it?) asterisks in incoming links.

    Interesting thought KCC! smile big_smile

    I sometimes think about things and start to wonder for instance, how many hubs I have that are under 500 words, or how many are between 500 and 800, etc.  To do that, I'd have to click on each one, click on stats and enter it into a spreadsheet for each one.  Then I could sort them, etc.  But, it would be nice if HP did that for us.  All it would take is the same layout as the "My Account Page".

      It's a great idea. I don't take much care of my Hubs on this account, but on my other one, it's a pretty time consuming job to go through all the Hubs to see where improvements can be made.

      I think this is a great idea KCC, I only have 13 published at the time and I dread going through each of those, I can't imagine what it is like for you and all the other serious writers here on HP. I would love that feature, because when I go to do a title change, it is nice to see what keywords are currently being searched to get to my hub, before deciding if I should change the title. Just my 2 cents.

        The Title Tuner does that, although I think it only lists hubs with a certain amount of activity within a certain amount of time.  I know not all of my 300 hubs appear there because some have very little activity this time of year because they are seasonal.

        The feature I'm proposing would only have the:

        Word Count total

        Revenue potential (right now it shows 1-5 asterisks) They could put 1 to 5 there so that it only takes up one character space

        Incoming links (same as revenue potential explanation above)

        View duration (same as the other two)

          Yes, that information would be much more convenient all on one page. I think I must be lost with the Title Turner. It tells me what people are looking for based on search engine results, but does not tell me how people are finding me at this moment, without looking up stats.
          I would love to see how many links are coming in and monetary value all on one page like you explained. Thanks for clearing that up for me. I hope I didn't confuse you with my Title issues smile

            Oh, you're meaning the keyword stats?  It would be more difficult to display that information on a page for all your hubs unless the only listed the top one.

            Do you use Google Analytics?

              That's true KCC, Thank you for mentioning that. I guess I am too tired to think straight tonight. I am going to bed. I think your idea is an excellent one though. smile

    I also like this idea!

    I love this idea!  Please, do consider this, HubPages.  I really hate going into my articles just to check the stats.  And because I do, I check my stats less often.

    For one thing, I have a trigger-happy mouse - once or twice, my computer's dialog boxes have disappeared as I was clicking on them and I ended up clicking my own HubPages ads and reporting them to AdSense - not fun.  That's not a HubPages problem, of course - it's my mouse finger.  But when I'm in "check stats" mode, I'm not thinking about the ads on the page. If it were all safe and separate, it would be a vast improvement.

    Looks like my idea has a little support....but I doubt HP will think it's worth it if we don't have more people interested in it.

    You know what would REALLY be nice?

    An API.   Something where we could pull down everything HP knows about each and every hub in an iterative fashion.  Do it with https like Google does its Feedburner Awareness API - … s_api.html - I use that to total up all my individual RSS subscribers.

    Then we could get whatever the heck we want and those of us who are nice could provide scripts for others to use (and yes, I would).

    Not sure that I would need/want the revenue potential as I find it totally irrelevant and frequently the opposite of what I actually earn per hub.

    Word count would be handy and incoming links too. View duration would be a nice-to-have as we already get that from Analytics.

    I just finished building a spreadsheet to do just this!  Awesome idea!  Thank you!

    The revenue potential is the $$$$ reported under the statistics next to the word count - on the far right tab.

    Irohner is right word count would be very good.

    I don't understand API - I know YouTube uses API but that must be something with the RSS which is still very new to me.  I must read Pcunix's link on that.

    I would think HP would support it since it helps us raise the quality of our hubs.  It is massaging the info that they already generate and track.

      API is "Application Programming Interface".  It can mean anything from simple http GETS to real programming.

      It's a way for the provider (in this case HP) to avoid having to think about  everything we users might want and just give us a way to access raw information from a database.  It's then up to us to slice and dice for our own needs.
