I've seen some hubbers with over 90 score, but their hubs only score 60+ each. Others have high scoring hubs but lower profile scores. So I'm ignoring scores for now alltogether as I'm new.
But what kind of traffic is "good" for a new hub - say within 1 week, 2 weeks and one month?
People post and say "my hub isn't doing too well..." What exactly is "not doing well"? Is like 100 page views in the frist 3 days good or mediocre? How many page views should a "good hub" that's "doing well" expect?
And yes of course I know it's topic dependent but it would be useful to have a vague idea at least! I'm at a loss as to whether mine are doing well or not... After a month I'm making a few cents at adwords and kontera but didn't really except anything just yet... and is that a good measure anyway?
Sure, but it's hard to judge really if they are doing well or not
I think judging can be done only on the basis of score.
The score on a hub is totally meaningless outside of hubpages.
As you said, it is difficult to know if a hub is doing well, but as a rule of thumb when one of my hubs are getting 50 or more hits a day and that traffic is from a search engine like google, and not from within hubpages, I feel that it is doing well regardless of the score assigned to it or me.
It may sound harsh but the forum doesn't make any money for me, neither does my score. What makes me the money is google sending people to my hubs...and they don;t care what the score it if they find what they are looking for.
There is a wide range of traffic. for a new hubber 50 a day would be very good, while some hubs get 5,000 and more regularly.
Again, counting the traffic from outside of hubpages only, I am generally happy with hubs that do 25 or more daily..I have a couple that have 200 or more daily on a regular basis.
As per statistics provided by the HP in a forum, there are only 1920 hubs that have >1000 visitors per month. So you may call any hub, statistically, a good hub if it has > 1000 views per month
Hi, you just joined a few weeks ago, and I joined 5 months ago, so here's some of my "old timers' input...somewhere on these hubs, I learned that a hub has to be about 90 days old to be really "out there"..,.google knows it's there, etc. etc. So, patience is a major major element here. Plus, I noticed from my "view stats" at the top of each hub that my first readers are most likely other hubbers...no money there, but good feedback and compliments and attention and so on. But the more time that goes by...and I try promoting my hubs quite a bit...you'll see in your 'stats' that readers are coming in via google, yahoo, etc. Those readers are the kind you need to make a bit of money. I consistently try to formulate my hubs the way that has been recommended by other 'profitable' (so they say) hubbers for the google ad in top right corner -- I don't put photo there as I did early on, ad placement after first paragraph, etc. MY views are really growing!!! Took 3 months to get 5000 views, After 5 months I have 12,000 views...so I'm encouraged! GOOD LUCK !
Thanks to you all for this info. Ok so for a newbie 50 a day is good so I'm happy then - some do way more, and some less but they'll get there. ALL my hubs are getting google traffic and some yahoo (but not yet all) and some got a LOT of traffic externally on launch as they were good "hot" topics.
That's very helpful.
All I was after was some kind of idea as to whether I'm doing any good or wasting my time!
I do think I have a bit of perfectionist syndrome - any potential hubs less than 1200 words I've not been posting as yet, (I want to give good viewing/reading value for money!) but that may change as time marches on!
You may need to keep an eye on your google analytics to track a whole bunch of metrics too about your hubs, this has been an invaluable tool for my hubs, over the past couple of years.
I always look for new places to promote related topics and links, as I can see from your profile page you have a few accounts elsewhere, so sectioning your back linking strategy might work on certain accounts to bring you organic search engine traffic to your hubs.
Alternating different types of hubs on social bookmarking sites work too, but I only do this once a week or so, because I don't like to over do hub submissions, but then re-writing articles to drive traffic over here has worked quite well.
I tend not to take notice of the numbers that each hub recieves until that is in terms of traffic at first, I just promote, write, promote and plan my next move, then when this is all done I check stats and results.
Google usually picks up a new hub within hours so you should have a fairly good idea if your hub is a dud or a winner almost immediately. That's not to say you can't improve on a "dud", and of course, "dud" is a relative term... but, still, if Google picks up your hub within hours and you get no traffic within 24 hours, it's not a good sign.

Hi, I currently have 4 hubs posted and I am literally not getting ANY traffic. I got maybe 10 views on the days I published a hub and then nothing. For today I have 0 views.

One of my game guides gets 100 views a week, even though the game came out in 2014. When I wrote it, I didn't really think it'd do as well as it is. Have any of your articles done surprisingly well?
