That is certainly a big goal,i myself passed 500,000 views a while back and it has taken me a year of solid writing to get that many so 950,000 in one year although possible is a huge task!!Best of luck though,keep us updated!!
I hit the 100,000 mark a little while ago, and the 150,000 mark is coming faster than I thought. But it's far, far away from a million.
May I suggest you look at successful Hubbers (those with a million views in three or less years, or those who are consistently in the 100 Hubber score range) and see what you can do to emulate their approach? Many of them have written very helpful Hubs about how they achieved their success.
I wish you the best and will be setting my goals a little higher because of your question.
Well, they say it's easier to aim for a 1,000,000 dollars (views) than for 100,000 dollars (views) because the first one will excite you more when you wake up in the morning. If that is your goal then go for it. You can do it!
I have reached 1,000 views and it is not hard, just work it and use some great themes to talk about. Also, those hubs that indicate high traffic, please don't ignore them. Add more content to it and keep it going.
A bit of both to be honest. Going to write as many hubs as I can and possibly create some backlinks for the ones already written. However normally your older hubs get backlinks anyhow so maybe I should keep writing.
I may also do some trend hubs, ie look at google trends and write a quick hub on a popular topic, could probably get a few thousand views out of each hub.
Backlinks are basically links to your page... if you were to write a couple of articles about plush toys you have known etc on ezinearticle.com, and in the resource bar put a link to your plush toy colleting hub page...
Your hub page will probably go onto the first page of google. It will take a few more links to get to the no 1 slot, but probably not many.
And then you would have the chance for some organic (non hubpage) viewers.
( I'm not sure I am explaining it well, I think if you google it, it will be more clear)
" I thought I could just write stuff."
Well, you can, but if you want to make money you need to know about some basics that will make the money for you, and ethical backlinking is one of the few things it is much harder to succeed without.
You can already write well.
The two things that will make an instant difference is backlinking in an ethical way, and niche research.
I want to thank Hubpages for allowing me to publish here. You were my first love for publishing online. I still haven't found another lover like you and can't seem to let you go. With all the arguments and disagreements...
It's taken a long time, but the views have slowly, but steadily, added up and I crossed the half-million mark at the end of last month.Anyway, I passed this milestone unaware of it. I mostly look at the daily and weekly...
What's your exception of "good" traffic on Hubpages? Daily, do you want 100, 200, 500?I just read about a lady who hit the 1 million visitor mark. It took her 5 years to do it. That's 200,000 views per year,...
Has anyone had a million views yet?I've just passed my 50,000 mark and am swiftly heading for 51,000 and am feeling very pleased with myself, especially as I removed some hubs and therefore lost quite a few views.
