Half a Million Page Views

    Not sure why, but I have decided that the arbitrary amount of 500,000 page views is a landmark worth celebrating big_smile

    Anyway, my hubs passed this landmark today. Woohoo !

    The amount of views varies dramatically from page to page, as my earlier hubs were created with not one clue about anything online smile

    Worst hub - Le Beauvallon Hotel - 221 views sad
    Best hub - Best iPhone bluetooth headsets 47,171 views smile

      It is not the worst Hub, by any means.  Perhaps it is just the Hub that had the most limited audience.  I would guess that if you promoted this Hub on a site that features French Riviera accommodations, you would see a dramatic increase.  Anyway, I'm not the Hub / SEO expert, but I don't think any of your Hubs could ever be labeled "worst".  Congratulations to you!

        Thanks. Although, when I said worst hub, I meant lowest amount of page views. I have others that could be considered "worst," by other definitions big_smile

    Thank you all.

    Trsmd -

    I can't be 100% specific because that would mean going back more than a year, but guesstimated -

    Adsense - $2,000
    Amazon -  $1,800
    Ebay - a couple of hundred bucks sad

    Bear in mind I only get 60% of the impressions.

      Congratulations Mark Knowles.

      Perhaps one of these fine days that you get some free hours, you can do a hub and share with others on how your Amazon's earnings are so good. I think you are among the very few who have mastered the Amazon's Code.

      1. Mark Knowles profile image60
        Mark Knowlesposted 9 years agoin reply to this

        I have said it over and over. smile

        The hub I first linked to is worth around $100-$200 a month in Amazon earnings....
