    After many months of working on my own time and writing just as a small hobby, I reached the 1000 view mark. I definitely have a long way to go, but this is encouraging. I wonder if the next 1000 views will come faster smile

    Thank You Hubpages for giving me opportunities to publish my work!

      The next thousand views will certainly come faster than the first.

      I'm working towards a hundred thousand, and some of the folks that I've got to know here are over a million.

      I don't know any secrets other than keep going, and learn from what is working - and head that direction.

    Congratulations - it's a milestone to be proud of.  And yes, the next 1000 should come faster.

    Question for you; have you set up google analytics yet?  They have a global map there that shows where your views come from; it is real interesting to see it fill in as you get views from all over the world.

    Way to go, Smanty!  I remember when I got my first thousand views.  Now I get more than that in one day and I'm still not satisfied!   The more views you get, the more you want!  smile

    Keep up the good work!

    Thank You so much everyone, it really is inspiring to see what you guys have achieved. I find it a little funny that it took me a year to reach the 1000 mark where it took others a matter of a couple of weeks. I have generated over 1/3 of my views in the past week and a half though, so all I can see is improvement from here.

    I have begun posting my hubs on highly rated sites and have seen great improvement in views from this.

      And where have you been posting your hubs if you don't mind me asking, Smanty?  Are you talking about backlinking or duplicate content?

      1. smanty profile image68
        smantyposted 6 years agoin reply to this

        Definitely backlinking smile I would never copy, duplicate, or plagiarize. I have been backlinking my hubs on shetoldme.com, best-reviewer.com, digg.com, and stumbleupon. If there are more sites I should look into that would be great!

      It took me a year to reach 1000, too, but within my second year I reached 10,000 mark, and it's exciting.  Keep it up!

      Those are some great places to post links, but my experience with those is that they're short term-traffic. One thing you can do that takes about as much time (a little more) is post on related forums.  I have a hub about it if you need more information than that (not trying to self promote, just trying to help).

    Congratulations. better late than never. 1 year for a 1000 views is a bit too late. I am at 700 now and this is my 13th day at hubpages and I am loving it. Anyways since you have got more traffic in recent days, your traffic will soar soon. What high rated websites did you post your hubs on? This information would be helpful.

    Keep up the good work, it takes time to build up the number of articles to achieve the views you want to achieve through hubpages, but it will continue to grow.

    Congrats, smanty! I remember how excited I was when I first hit 1000 views (and it took me a few months here at HP). Now I'm looking for 10,000, which should happen pretty soon here. :-)
