Feel free to pull these apart or disagree with them, opinion is welcome. I can't help but feel that these features would aid the site:
1) A Facebook share column in our stats page. Not for public viewing, but for our own analysis. So, say, next to the total page views column we could have stats on the number of facebook shares? This would help us guage the popularity of a hubpage, somebody has to actually like it to share it; and as much as we all hate it, social sites will play a bigger role in the future.
2) Next to this, a column showing number of incoming links? We have these stats on each individual Hubpage, but with 655, I don't have time to peruse this info. If one shows zero links, I might be tempted to create one or two for it. If one has 40 incoming links, I wouldn't bother too much.
3) The same for word count. I can go back over my poor performing hubs with 400 words, write another 400, and see whether it improves performance.
I agree. I would LOVE to see more stats about my hubs within the account section without going to each hub. I would like to see where my links are coming from, too.
Maybe if hubpages built a suggester tool for poorly performing hubs like:
Tip! This hub may perform better if you add such n such too it!
ALSO: Within each hub I have some asterisks saying the revenue potential, it would be nice to be able to see this on the overview page... in order to give me an idea of the types of hubs to write. Just a thought. Also to be able to sort by the number of asterisks of earning potential.
I would like to see 2) implemented if possible. I'm sure HP team can do that easily.
Some good ideas here. What I like is the idea of having more 'at a glance' info so we know what stuff needs a little tlc and what is doing fine as is without having to wade through everything to figure out whats what.
I'd love to see #2 and #3 implemented. #1 is interesting, but I don't know how actionable it is, and if I can't make any tangible changes based on it, it's a nice-to-have rather than a need-to-have IMHO.
@Melbel - I certainly hope you don't base anything on the revenue potential asterisks. Some of my best-performing and best-earning hubs show the lowest revenue potential, and vice versa.
No. Basically your just asking them to re administrate the placement of what we already have
Hi to you too.
They wouldn't need to remove this stuff from its existing position, simply provide a means of reviewing it all in one go. I'm sure that reviewing this info regularly with 20 hubpages is extremely easy, but keeping on top of my 655 hubpages is effectively a part-time job in itself, I dread to think what it would be like with 1000; if Hubpages want people to achieve that level of output, then they need to make things as easy as possible for them.
I have said it before, and will say it again, as things stand I will be stopping at 1000; any new hubs will replace deleted hubs. In other words, I can't manage any more than 1000 unless they let me work smarter. And that is coming from somebody who does this full time and dedicates half of his working hours (half of his 50-60 per week) to Hubpages as a platform. I will not dedicate any more than that, as it is to the detriment of my own sites; therefore the only way I will consider getting passed 1000 is if the day to day administration of my Hubpages becomes easier.
@Lrohner - There are facebook 'like' stats recorded on each hub, sure that there is a way of pulling that data and analysing/presenting it accordingly? Pretty certain that you can present 'Most Liked' lists on Wordpress blogs.
It's quite possible I'm missing something here. By my sites are all niche and my hubs are all over the board. Unless I can create semi-automatic 'Most Liked' lists like I can with custom tags and RSS feeds, still not sure how that would benefit me.
I like the idea of #2 and #3. FB stuff I don't get but supposing social networking will see an increase then in terms of interest re stats, a good idea.
The word count I especially like.
I, too, like #2 and 3, especially the incoming links. With only 100 hubs, I spent a couple of hours going through and checking for links yesterday, and didn't look at half of them.
Word count might be nice, but I seldom write short hubs anyway, so not as valuable as the links.
I also agree with #'s 2 and 3. I think those would be very useful. Both would be time savers, even with less than 100 hubs.
I like #2 and #3 more but I would want all the 3 to be implemented if possible.
I really like #2 and #3, but I like the idea you had three months ago a lot more.Here´s what I´m talking about - http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/55387

Is there a way to get rid of unwanted traffic sites that attach a link to our hubs without our knowledge? I try to individually monitor my hubs for suspicious traffic and have written two letters to the offender who has sent me 8 visits on one hub this week. Now HubPages has marked my hub with a...

Hi everyone! When checking my hubmetrics, I noticed that several hubs that I know have incoming links from facebook, ezines, etc. often show maybe 2 asterisks when I know they have more. I have established quality links that relate to the hub. If I would have 2 articles relating to a hub on ezines,...

The hubpages stats page always fascinates me. http://hubpages.com/stats/ The picture of it is shown below, but it is the same as the link.If I am reading this right, ~800,000 of the 1.2M hubs (~66%) get less than 10 views per MONTH?That surprises me. I would not have expected that...

I was thinking of splitting an article into 2 or even 3 different hubs because it was too long. How many words should our articles have before we can publish them on HubPages? I checked the HubPages FAQ page but the only word count listed there refers to the total number of words that an article...

I've been out of the loop for awhile here and I see there are many great improvements to HubPages in the meantime. What is the "incoming" links referring to under the new metric stat tabs?Thanks!

As summer will soon comes to a close and fall will usher itself in, it is time to start thinking about fall topics and Halloween. As freelance writers, we always need to think a season ahead, especially if you want to maximize seasonal earnings. Even retail stores are starting to put out Halloween...
