Since the change to our own subdomains I've paid attention to the amount of traffic coming from my own subdomain. While HP traffic has dropped of course, the figures from my own hubs have surprised me. Readers are hopping through my hubs more than I ever thought they would.
I typically see around 10% of my views coming from my subdomain. What percentage do most hubbers get? What would you consider a good number?
I used last month's traffic sources for my sub, divided by the views for the month (from the account summary list) as a %. Is this what you wanted? I think the results will very much depend on whether the author is specific or broad in terms of the topics covered. I cover a very broad range, matches my anatomy.
Yes, that's exactly what I wanted to see. Traffic from "jaderson99" dot hubpages dot com divided by total views and expressed as a % value. A month should give a pretty good value.
I agree, a subdomain with a few well defined niches should show more views than one with a wide variety of subjects and not many of any one kind. It would seem that interlinking between very different hubs (if allowed by HP) would not see many click throughs to the second hub. Only hubs that are of a similar nature could expect to see visitors bounding through 2 or more hubs.
A narrower topic will also increase the chances of a similar hub appeared in the 'related hubs' list. Higher number of followers links to this as hubbers are more likely to look at the 'related hubs' list. I also think its related to whether most of your traffic is derived internally or from Google etc.
Oh sure. I'm sure those related hubs are partially based on the category you have assigned; multiple hubs in the same category will likely show up there, while hubs in different categories probably won't.
Don't know about hubbers looking at that list, though - I seldom do. And that, of course, indicates that NO hubber does!
Mine is about 10% - but I do have quite a few 'index' hubs - for example I have Guinness Recipes hub with about 15 links to different recipes - and similar for other 'collections' so I would expect to see some traffic from my sub-domain.
Don't forget - if you use the group function correctly - you're other hubs could be showing up on the right of the main hub and therefore would get traffic that way.
Mine is right at 10 percent and stays that way consistently.
My daily views went up quite considerably lately, but I can't honestly trace it back to the subdomain changeover.
It started several weeks after.
Maybe there was a time lag. Who knows?
Mine are also at about 10%, sometimes they are even higher than that. I suppose it's partly due to the fact that I link quite a lot of my Hubs together.
I think you're right. I interlink my hubs quite heavily, plus provide an RSS feed on each one. They are also grouped and HP provides more links between hubs because of that.
I was hoping for more response, trying to get handle on what is normal for HP. If most hubbers are getting more, maybe I need to rethink my strategy.
Mine is about 10% too, but very few of my hubs contain links to my other hubs.
What figures are you using to calculate? Monthly, Ever? 'Ever' wouldn't be accurate if we've been here before subdomains were introduced.
I used monthly - seems a better indicator than weekly or daily!
No, "ever" would not work well - newer hubbers of even several months or a year won't have much in the way or organic traffic for the first few months and that would distort the percentage. Plus, as you say, many of us could have year(s) of traffic with NO subdomain traffic.
A better indicator would be the 30 day column.

Article for discussion. I know that this recent development has already been mentioned by some hubbers in forums. But I am now wondering if this might be the main reason why we are seeing the current traffic plunges for many hubbers? See link...

I now have 15 hubs. I am hitting 300 pageviews per day. 1 of my hubs on FIFA World Cup 2010 is contributing to 70% of the traffic. There rest of it with 13 hubs hitting 3 to 10 pageviews per day and 1 hub with 0 views most of the time. I am worry that when the World Cup is over, so will my traffic...

After reading every post, every article, etc... on the subject matter I thought I'd start a post with arguments against Amazon being the source of the free fall in traffic that many of us experienced last week as I don't believe it is the problem. (I can't say 100% for sure).1.) Many hubbers which...

I’ve been reading many questions on the forums about how to get more traffic to your hubs. I’m a great believer in testing something, analysing the results, refining and sharing, and I approached the subject of how to get hub views in a practical methodical way. I’ll share my techniques below and...
