I have been writing on HubPages for over two years, and I have yet to reach 100,000 views. I'm finally close, but what a long ride to get here. I hope to see that mark in a few weeks. So how long did it take you to get to 100,000 views? Just asking.
Are you talking about another account and not the one you're using for posting to the forums?
The account you're using for posting to the forums has not reached 100,000 views as of yet. The accolade isn't on your profile. The accolade that is on your profile says that your hubs have been view 1,000 times?
So, I'm not sure what you're talking about. Please clarify?
Hello Freta, great to hear from you. Headed over to read your update hub next.
I hit 100,000 views at about 3 wks short of one year, with 198 hubs. I hit 200,000 about 4 months later, and 300,000 another 3 months after that. A LOT of things have happened since then (Mar 2011)- Google drama, subdomain shift, separation of HubMob roundups, return of Google traffic. I should make 400,000 views today.
WOW! Looking back at those of you who reached 100,000 views early, tells me that I've been writing the wrong type of hubs. That's my story and I'm sticking to it, and don't burst my bubble, and tell me it's my writing.
Your writing is very engaging. I think a big part is how you title, tag, and summarize your hubs. You have to think about people sitting in front of their computer typing into the Google search bar. What are they looking for? Titles need to be simple and straight forward. The magazine article-type titles work for print magazines in drawing attention, but you need something more obvious for hubs. I think many of your recipes, home remedy tips, etc could potentially draw good traffic.
I don't remember when I hit that 100,000 mark, but it was probably only a year ago or so (I've been here for three years). I hit the 200,000 right around the February Panda. At that progress, I should reach 300,000 in a few months, or a few years...who knows? A million looks very far away to me!
Just keep learning and doing, fastfreta, and publishing your awesome Hubs.
Thanks Sally and everyone else for the encouragement. When I see someone that's been here the same time as I have, and even some that has not been here as long with 100,000 or more I get discouraged. So again thanks all for the encouragement.
Woop, woop . . . I hit another milestone today, 100,000 views to my hubs. Yeaaay! I'm grateful to all of my fellow hubbers who read and share my hubs. But I'm eternally grateful to those who come by way of organic...
I just reached 100,000 views on 35 Hubs. (I only had 2 beginning in May of this year.) So, you can get great traffic from Google on HubPages! I'm happy about the traffic, but I wish the CPM were higher.
