    Wondering who's king/queen of the roost in terms of views per day.

    Alexa is wildly inaccurate.

    For example, I've not yet hit a million views. A hubber I know has received 10s of millions of views and is not on the list you've posted.

    I believe only views from those with the Alexa tool installed are going to count. A lot of SEO "pros" (I use that term extremely loosely) have that tool installed. Because of this, anything that an SEO "pro" is going to find useful is something that may appear higher in Alexa.

    Furthermore, let's say I have that tool installed. I obviously view my own work A LOT in order to make sure my writing looks good, everything's formatted nicely, and because I'm incredibly conceited. From what I understand of the Alexa tool is that it would count my own views thus puffing them up at least a bit.

    Stuff that people with the tool don't care about isn't going to show up as receiving any traffic. Let's say for fun that nobody with the tool has/knows children. So a hubber who writes about children's clothing, baby toys, etc who may receive more traffic than any other hubber would not appear in Alexa.

    That said, it's not safe to make any conjectures about what people who have the tool care about. Instead, just agree that the tool is wildly inaccurate and focus on learning what's in the Learning Center and build your own traffic instead of modeling your content after what others write. Write about what interests you and, of course, be savvy when selecting keywords.

      I was curious as to where this info was obtained.  I think you've answered for me.

      It's more than just the toolbar, geez! If you are not familiar with something don't just regurgitate a few sound bytes you've read on some forum to sound smart, simply don't comment.

      For those of you who are interested, check out hubpages on alexa, then click site analytics...pretty interesting;
      http://www.alexa.com/siteinfo/hubpages.com

      the #1 searched term on hubpages is 'what kind of dog is boo' of which a hub is ranked #1. Adwords indicates 27,100 exact match searches so that page would definitely get a lot of traffic.

        Yes, but I have a hub with a keyword (my hubs on the first page of google) with more than 45,000 exact match views. I don't see the keyword on that list for HubPages.

        Alexa might be fun to look at, but in terms of accuracy, it's a joke. Even Matt Cutts has pointed out issues with it.

          are you top 3?
          90% of traffic is from top 3.

        I'm confused about those stats. Am I supposed to read that as: Kathryn gets 0.99% of all the traffic that comes in to HubPages? If that's the case, how does someone else with < 10,000 page views rank higher than someone with > 100,000 page views? What does the % represent?

          she has a 10 million pageview button.Wow!  Anyone else I wonder?

        If you actually knew what the Alexa toolbar was and how it worked, you'd realize that the stats generated by it don't even come close to representing what is happening on the site as a whole.

        As I understand it, Alexa's stats reflect traffic ONLY FROM PEOPLE WHO USE THE ALEXA TOOLBAR.

        Is that correct?

        Since the Alexa toolbar is used mainly by webmasters and internet marketers, that's a very skewed proportion of the population and not relevant to my topics, so I wouldn't expect to have much traffic from them. So for me, it's pretty meaningless.

    What's all this worrying and interest in other hubber's traffic?  Much better to concentrate on your own.

      j-u-i-c-eposted 5 years ago in reply to this

      Well, I can't speak for others, but I'm pretty new to this. I'm just trying to figure out what the numbers mean. smile Worrying is one thing, but in this case it's more a matter of being informed.

        Just that the only traffic numbers that mean anything are yours.  If you keep writing and learning your traffic will gradually increase. A bit of general information on other hubbers traffic  can be interesting, but set your own goals and celebrate when you achieve them smile

    I might be sticking my foot in my mouth but, I wouldn't want people knowing that stuff about my account. I mean, there is a reason why our account is private. I fear that if I should start generating some hefty traffic that people will invade my privacy. Isn't it like setting up these people as sitting ducks for people to copy their content or mimic their work by revealing their account info?

    Also, why would people want to know how much traffic another person is getting? Wouldn't it be more productive to work on increasing your own?
