sample inventory reports on my hubs

Updated on June 5, 2010

After spending 10 months on hubpages it is now a good time to do an accounting of the hubs that I have done. A few days ago from this writing I had 39 hubs and had just obtained a portable device. Now is as good a time as any to sit down a sip a cup of tea and look at how far I have gone in terms of writing. Writing is a great part of my daily life, for better or worse, and I suppose hubpages is rather useful in getting words out and seeing how it settles down. After all it will not be long when I will be for a short while on the move. Now is a good time to see how my inventory of 39 sample hubs have aged!

Unlike most advocates of the 80/20 or 80-20 Pareto rule for the inventory, I have found that not to be the case! That form of interpreting inventory samples is of course to be taken with a grain of salt. It is not the intention to have a 20% to 80% distinction in every single time. In the contrary, it is meant to illustrate how a small proportion of samples can account for a substantial portion of the output. On my end I have found 10-15% of my hubs account for a substantial portion of my output of the entire inventory sample. That is about 70% of the total page views. This is an interesting affirmation and example of the Pareto principle in analyzing invetory samples.

I scribbled out a tiny bit of hubs in the first month, of which only 25% only really made it out of the woods. The next up was less than 8% of the best hub, and did not perform well after its inception. The rest definitely flopped. Even today that single hub in the first month is still the best of all my hubs partly because it is also one of the oldest. I guess age does play an important part in determining the strength of your hubs from within your data inventory sample. Once again an asymmetric path like that of the pareto concept. Besides my sample expenses reports hub, another thing I did was to work on cross referencing from outside sources for sample inventory reports.
