I know that this greatly depends on allot of different factors, but I don't even know where to begin. Does anyone have any suggestions?
If you are talking about money, start with money. Average revenue on Hubpages is between 2 and 5 dollars per 1000 views. Match this to the revenue you need, and you have the traffic numbers that are good for you.
Is there anyway to project the amount of page views a hub will recieve, or should recieve?
It will depend entirely on the popularity of a word.
Though the more 'popular' it is, the harder it is to break onto the first page of search engine results.
Less popular keyword searches, of which there are possibly hundreds of thousands, if not millions, tend to be by people who honestly want to find out more about the subject that they're interested in. And if you've got original content, and you've added some useful products (via the Amazon or Ebay capsules) you could stand to make a sale or two. And also clicks on the accompanying contextual ads because it may be promising a solution to their problem.
Even if you're only getting 15 visitors a day, it could be an outstanding success. And you can do this by writing about what you know.
On the other hand you could research a hot keyword and publish a page and if you do manage to rank highly and get a lot of traffic the majority of that traffic could just be other people, just like you, who are only on your page because they want to use your information to publish a page because it's a hot keyword.
Ever heard about keyword research? It's the only way. Not that it will give you any exact numbers though...
There is no "should" with hubbing. Think about what you, personally, are trying to achieve and then set a goal for yourself. Do you want to make a dollar a day? $100 a month? Get 100 hits a day? Get 100 hits from outside sources a day? Get 100 fans?
Different people hub for different reasons, and find satisfaction in different stats. Figure out what would make you feel validated, and then work towards it.
Thanks for the help guys! I'm trying to judge how well or unwell I am doing so far, and where I can improve. I guess the amount of page views I am recieving isn't what I should be using to grade myself.

How many page views does it take to create $1 ?Now; I realist that page views and hub revenue is not 100% directly proportionate, however I wondered what people found is generally the average revenue generated from a certain amount of page views, I have a rough idea it might be around;400 pages...

How do you achieve 5000 page views per day?I happened upon this info on a forum post, I am not following you, oh wait, yes I am.

I am experiencing an overall average off 66 percent less page views per day, for seven days versus a week previous and for the past two months. Such a huge drop in page views makes me think that Google has tuned up something again. I do know that I don't have the time and energy to keep...

For the past 48 hours,, my total views (as shown on my account summary) are decreasing, then increasing, then decreasing again. Yesterday I watched the daily view go from 309 to 263 then back to 300.; How does this affect income and when will the counts be reliable again?

Since I migrated here from Squidoo two months ago, I've seen a steady stream of threads in this forum, complaining about lost page views. There are a lot of theories about why it's happening, and how much it's happening, and what can be done to get into Google's good graces.Google is not my #1...
