I realize that compared to some of the superstars here (hi, Cags!) who are looking at half a million views and upward after a similar amount of time here, this is nothing, but 100K is a milestone for me and it looks like I'll be hitting it before my birthday in February.
I kind of wanted that to be so. I couldn't call it a "goal" because I'm not doing anything to increase traffic other than spewing out the usual nonsense at regular intervals, but still, I wanted to hit that before my birthday and it looks like it will.
Those of you who do that sooner have my slack jawed admiration and those of you who are yet to reach it have my encouragement.
Happy 100K birthday to me :-)
Congrats on that milestone. I found those found milestones were big motivators for me to write more. Congrats and watch how fast those next 100,000 come now!
Actually, I just pushed it back a bit. I had 30 or so hubs that never did well and I got sick of watching them get no views month after month, so I zapped 'em. They did add up to a few thousand views though, so now I'm back to being a week away..
Good Boy.. now write a Dorsi doosi like:
"Strange UFOs (Unidentified Farting Odors) Have Been Discovered In San Francisco! - Watch the Video!"
And you will get 100K views in a day... especially if you name the culprits, link to Cagsil and use the tag HP
I can't do it..
Dorsi did a great job on that hub - skeptical but still respectful toward the views of those who think that stuff is real. It's not in me to show respect for stuff like that. I never even would have thought to write about it because of that!
Oh don't get me wrong... I wasn't suggesting anything unethical or disrespectful..
A lot of Methane is created in San Fran.. and its not a city area known for herds of dairy cows... so other than BS where does it come from?
Good Luck on your efforts mate! Over and Out Roger...
Congrats! Personally, I think google has been falling down on the job in regards to you. Hopefully, that is about to change. Maybe 342 hubs is attainment of critical mass?
Oh, well, yes. Unlike certain folks who just write a few finely crafted hubs and watch the traffic roll in, I use the "throw it at the wall and see what sticks" approach, eschewing such supposedly valuable artifices such as editing, careful research and the rest.
Now, there is certainly something to be said for a precision rifle shot, but shotguns are loud, messy and you can often hit things you didn't even aim at. In my case, I put aside the shotgun and went with a large cannon filled with grapeshot, some bric a brac I found lying about, all carelessly mixed with small stones and gravel. The charge is my own mixture of home made powder and a large quantity of match heads - it's more fizzle than pow, but it gets the stuff out there.
Well,sort of out there - it was at least pushed out of the muzzle, anyway.
As a newbie here, congratulations! There's no doubt you will reach your next goal!
Congratulations, PCunix. I just hit that milestone myself about a week ago after two years here.
Congratulations, Pcunix! Here's to more traffic your way.. Cheers!
Congrats, Pcunix! Now go take a walk to celebrate the impending 100K.
Definitely fingers crossed for your milestone before your BD! Then roll out that 500K in record time.
Congratulations Pcumix!! Here I sit with a mere 133 views..lol Although I signed up two years ago I just started becoming active by submitting hubs, reading and commenting on other hubs, ect. I am glad I read your post as it has insired me to continue on.... One day I hope to be as popular as you
Congratulations, that is mighty impressive, i'm still about 30k off of mine :S but it'll get there eventually. That really is an impressive time frame, especially with Panda in that time frame. I'd high five you if i could
Congrats - what a great goal to reach! Hopefully it will be exponential and the next 100K will be there in no time:)
I suppose that, given my lousy attitude toward promotion and my unfocused randomness, I'm lucky to be approaching it.
I'm happy to be there, though.
Well, we are down to the wire. Sometime over the next few days, I'll be there.
Twenty months to get there is somewhat disappointing to me. There was that six month post-panda traffic flatline, but even with that I'm not entirely happy about taking so long. Still happy to get there, of course.
If I could roll back time, I think I would do some things differently and might have hastened that milestone a little, but maybe not, so who really knows? 'Tis what it is.
Congrats Pcunix, it's a great milestone to reach. I'm sure with 334 hubs, your views will multiply even faster after your reach this milestone.
I have to say that your output - quality, writing skills, interesting, engaging and the sheer number of them - is very impressive.
So well done to you!
You'll get there faster than I did, I'm sure.
By the way, you are looking very pale in your new icon picture. Should I be concerned?
Oh, look: we are wearing matching badges today.
Mine won't last. I've been saying unfriendly things about conservatives today - that always seems to knock me down a few days later. Totally coincidentally, of course because when am I *not* saying unfriendly things?
?? I was sincerely offering you words of encouragement.
I'm just joking.. you know I still like you in spite of the political divide. I'm sorry that did not come across.
PC, you speak your mind. I respect that. I also enjoy conversations in which the other party disagrees. It helps me to see things through another perspective. Disagreement encourages the search for knowledge.
In no way would I dislike another human being simply for the fact that they have different views of the world.
Congrats on the milestone. I'm new here and that's very inspiring to see what others have achieved.
Congrats on the milestone Pcunix. I'm still trying to reach 1000 views but i'll get there eheh
Finally made it. 100,001 as I write this.
Twenty months, three hundred hubs and then some.. some people do it much, much faster with far less hubs, but they have talent and skills I lack, so I did it with time and raw volume..
I could have done it a week or so earlier if I hadn't decided to delete some really unimpressive things, but here we are just the same and still well in advance of my birthday
Congratulations! That's so awesome and Happy early Birthday!
I visited your latest hub and blitz blue-buttoned it. You are now 100,002.
Congratulations on the first 100K, Happy Birthday in advance, and just so I could feel like a part of the buzz and excitement, I read one of your articles:)
Well done mate.. a couple more noughts and you've cracked it..
Congrats, PC - you're one of the ones earning the rewards here. Just as you say, work and perseverance have paid off.
And onward to that second 100 grand!
Congratulations Pcunix! i have been following you from the moment I knew you existed - on the forums. I miss your hat that told the world you were 'out there' but really pleased to see the 'real you' or the personna you want us to see as the 'real you'. Love your work and watching from afar. All the best for the next 100K
It's all fake.
Actually, I'm a 47 year old migrant worker of Italian descent who makes a side living selling things like this on eBay: http://www.tampabay.com/news/bizarre/article1213117.ece
I have been married eight times to the same woman (we are both optimists) and we have no children except for the two who would like to pretend that their father does NOT write embarrassing things on Facebook and other places.
I am deeply religious, 5'7", bald and tragically overweight. However, that bit about my ancestor and the Pcuni is absolute truth. It angers me that some have doubted that.
I apologize for the other deception.
Yes, well done MR Unix! ;-)
You seemed to disappear for a long time, but then you were back! :-)

I usually don't post milestones in the forum, but wanted to share this one with you. Hopefully it will encourage others.I reached 100,000 views sometime in Sept or Oct., 2011 Yesterday or very early this morning I reached 200,000 views - I have 58 hubs.I was amazed to see how many views...

I want to thank Hubpages for allowing me to publish here. You were my first love for publishing online. I still haven't found another lover like you and can't seem to let you go. With all the arguments and disagreements I am still here. Hopefully, I'll fall in love with you like before.I have been...

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.

I quit publishing a while back after only 12 hubs...but have to admit I am encouraged to keep on going now. And finally starting to see a bit of money coming in too.....( a bit....lol). I was so excited when I started just under a year ago, then all the negativity got to me. Also most of the views...

I have been here for a year and have published just 38 hubs. I am very happy to see that my hubs have been viewed 100,000 times.

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 traffic. Organic traffic is King. Woop, woop!Advice: Patience and luck. Having one or...
