The good news is that 56% of my hub traffic today is from search engines. Wait! Don't cheer me yet! The bad news is that I've had a whopping 11 views in the last 24 hours--none of which came from hubpages--but I've heard that doesn't really matter, right?
So I don't know whether I should be excited to get that organic traffic at a higher percentage than it's ever been, or if I should be hanging my head for such a low day!
Why Nell! It almosts sounds like you don't want any of us visiting you!
Two months isn't a real long time. Don't give up!
That's great, nell - it means people are searching for what you have on offer, and from outside HubPages, which is even better.
Read lots, learn lots - you'll keep improving
I just checked - I have 44% of traffic from the outside world in the last 24 hours. It takes a long time
To agree with everyone else, you're definitely heading in the right direction
I now receive over 80% of my traffic from sources outside of HP, the various googles, bing, etc...
For my first few weeks, it was the opposite! Over 80% was from HP!
Best of luck!
Thanks, everyone for your comments. I kept telling myself that it was great to have traffic coming from the outside. But I was feeling a little unloved today nonetheless--I'll get over it. There's always tomorrow, too! LOL
depend on your intention, if you join hubpages to sell product and make money from adsense then outside traffic is good. good because they are potential 'buyer'..
but if you join hubpages because you want to make friend then inside traffic is more important for you..
I just checked my Google stats, and I was very surprised that 58% of this months traffic is from Google. But, there are also various percentages from other search engines, and my hubpages traffic is only 7%. I am also very happy with my 78% increase in over all traffic, a lot of which has come from my gay movie hub, which has surpassed 3 of my other hubs in total views, and it is currently my most popular.
Now, if I could just get something going at Amazon, that would be great. I have not received a dime there yet.
Yeah, Amazon hasn't been doing anything for me either. I've had clicks, but no purchases.
What someone told me -- and they were right -- was to wait till I was getting about 500 pageviews a day before I should expect regular amazon sales.
I couldn't say now exactly where I was when they started, maybe 400ish or so, but you get the idea.
besides keyword what you guys doing to get traffic?
Animal sacrifice, ritual dancing, begging, bumper stickers, adverts on blimps, and a regular bout of dialing up strangers and whispering a random url of mine when they answer.
Seems to be working well, but the signs on the blimps are really expensive.
Wow! That's a tiring regimen! So you're maybe breaking even then?
well i recently signed up with angela edwards, i bought her packet for 5 dolllars and she give me packet each month with sites PR ranking 6 and up to register and put my signature links and url address. seems to be working because google index them fast which put my articles on the front page.
Well, as I said, the blimps are expensive and the pesky lawsuits from the animal rights people aren't exactly cheap either. I think for 2011 I'll concentrate mostly on the dialing up strangers and shouting in the back yard.
Excellent idea. Although noticing your handle reminds me that I also intend to try Mass Hypnosis and Psychic Suggestions. I believe that if I can combine those two things, the world is my oyster.
Assuming that I don't decide to make it a lobster or something else at the last minute. I will put a lot of thought into this; I'm not sure this would be reversible.
Haha! I love it! Maybe I'll take to doing that too....if I get arrested for disturbing the peace, know anyone who could get me off with a slap on the wrist?
I love these suggestions, i'm going to get started immediately if i call one of you on accident don't go to my url i'm looking for outside traffic. lol
I'm on a similar time frame to you, with more hubs. But similar traffic.
So if you're into hanging heads then mine should be the first one on the block.
Currently I could send every visitor a personal letter of thanks and a signed photo, and still have plenty of free time.
If I didn't have my family to keep me so busy, I'd be right there with you with the personal autographs! haha!
I've heard of a head-bangers club, maybe we could start a head-hangers one?
my toddler keeps me busy too but i do it when he's asleep
That's great Unfortunately, I'm so exhausted by all of my munchkins and the day-to-day stuff that comes along too, that at the end of the day, I'm snoring along with them (unless one of them wakes me up ). Of course, this is at night, as naps have gone out the window with all of them but my baby. Haha
I think Google traffic coverts well -- most of the time.

Is there a benefit to waiting to publish your hub?Is there a benefit for waiting for your hub score to become higher before hitting the publish button? I noticed if it takes awhile to get everything arranged that sometimes the hub score starts to climb. Is there any benefits until waiting until it...

I've spent the last few months experimenting with different hub lengths and layouts on sales hubs and trying to be rigorous about it. It's impossible to do this in a completely statistically valid model with this relatively small number of hubs (about 350), but after trying different styles of...

Hi,I've been publishing articles here for a year now. I understand that it takes a long time to get paid but something has been bothering me. Basically, it's the fact that the most I've made in a month is $1, even though all of my articles have been featured on the "niche sites". For this...
