I have no clue really how to get traffic - but I am delighted that I am approaching my first 1000 views and one hub is close to hitting the 300 views.
Thanks to my fans/friends here on HP as well as Adland and Face Book.
Hip Hip .......
You're doing well, my friend. I'll be looking forward to hearing more good news from you.
Great job Neil. Keep writing hubs and watch the views go higher and higher.
LOL - Love it when someone tells it like they see it!
If I was trying to make money doing this I would be disgusted - but I'm doing it to share a little about things that matter to me. The feedback I'm getting tells me I touched a couple people - that to me is worth more than money!
Again Top Stuff - Thanks for being blunt and telling it like you see it!
So you know it did not offennd me it reminds me of a quote "Balls" said the Queen ... "If I had some I'ld be king."
Congratulations, 1000 views is a good first level to reach
Why would you say that? I'm glad no one had that kind of reaction to my little 2000 view celebration. I've seen my traffic steadily grow since then.
Neil, I'll join the "congratulations" chorus! I've thrilled to be at hubpages, and I believe even slow progress will be long-term progress!
I agree, Niel.
As long as some numbers are going up, and people are reading, it's a good thing. I especially love it when people find something to laugh at in my hubs. Laugher is healthful.
Some of my hubs are more serious-- I may have some useful information to share, even when a little silliness creeps in.
I look at my numbers-- but don't get too focused on them.
I am really happy to get hits and feedback. I am not looking at this as a way to earn streams of pennies every day, though I will be happy if I can buy a gallon of gasoline/petrol at some point.
We all want more.. but at certain times we can be happy for what we have.
Therei s value here, it makes me happy frequently.
Congratulations are due for your success!
Hey Neil that's great news. Congratulations - you have every reason to boast! :-)
Grats man. Rome wasn't built in a day. Keep laying down the roads, bro. 1000 is a cool milestone.
And Rochelle, seriously, you are a freaking crack up. The only thing holding you back from being a national humor figure is probably that you don't realize how funny you are.
Neil, you can boast any time you like. Every website has to start somewhere, and I am in the same kind of boat as you. As we speak, I have a total of just over 3700 hits, and about 1000 of those hits have been in two of the hubs. I haven't posted any celebratory comments because I do realize that I have a long way to go before I'll be respectable. This is not to minimize your accomplishment. I have faith that if I stay with it, the numbers will increase, and so will yours. Keep it up!
Just remember, it's not always "how many" hits...but "Who" hits. I do less writing on Hubpages than I do anywhere, but google still loves me here, and the other place. Besides that, someone saw one of my Articles that led to a real writing job! lol. Numbers are numbers, just do your best, learn what you can, keep improving, and to He** with the Nay-sayers.
Hi Neil -
It's a good start. Like you, I'm not writing here to make money. But the quality of feedback available on Hubpages is higher than anywhere else I've written.
Almost to a goal of 1000 is definitely something to celebrate.
I figure 1000 people actually reading my work is better than 100,000 who simply click on it and click away to something better.

I just checked to see when it was that I hit 100,000 views...it was 3 months ago. Today I hit 130,000! That means it took 2 years or so to hit 100,000 but only a fraction of that time to hit another 30,000! I am really shocked to see the numbers grow so fast all of a sudden, but I...

I finally hit 250,000 views today. It took a long time coming but here is to the next 250,000.

In the bigger scheme of things, 250,000 page views is not so huge. But I just couldn't resist being able to say "million" when talking about my stats!

Hit 1 million views today. These niche sites have been truly rewarding. Thanks to all the help and support from HP and you hubbers over the years!

I am soo happy, I have reached 500,000 views. I am aiming for 1 million before the end of the year. How many views do you have and what are your expectations? Tips on how to drive more traffic and increase the $$$$$ are also welcome.
