My HubPages are in the top, .006% of all websites in the world. How to get there in a year. Now 003.5%

Updated on September 24, 2013

I did not eat that Oreo!! Not me but that is how I feel.

Hard work and saying something important.

Websites are actually tracked and rated by companies that get paid to do that. Hubs have some good rankings. Therefor Hubpages is good for the writer. The higher a hub ranks in the world the more valuable the hubs become. And again a high rating is good for the writer.

In just over a year from first publish which was May 25 2012, I am at this ranking. By records I did not start in earnest until July of 2012. Today I cannot manage all my hubs. I work more than full time at my other jobs and am primary raising my 3 year old. And I preach and teach every Sunday. So this is very part time. But I do read stuff and comment all day long. HubPages is an amazing platform.

At my other jobs I strategize and then implement through writings or all sorts: Legal, Persuasive, technical, explanatory and my favorite, Teaching.

I do not try to push traffic. I share some with Face book and Pinterest but that is because I have friends there that are not here. I had a website but let it expire. I had a blog, but it was private. I have an Adsense account but I have not really monetized it, same with ebay and amazon.

I think I have almost two hundreds hubs featured. And I have probably commented 2,000 times minimum.

But to date,

I am just a writer.

Do you just love to write and read and talk about it?

Do you write for joy?

See results

I hated these polls. But they are cool as a breather and to engage. I answer about 3 a day.

Polls are cool to get you to think and reflect. They are a cool for fun. In some of my work I draft polls out to investors to find out what they want and how my companies are doing. I have also done a lot of poll work for picking juries like that Zimmerman matter. Polls should help focus and relax. Cuz we are are just slobs like the rest of us.

I do not think polls increase traffic. But I hear they look good and in that sense are good for marketing. Who cares?

I am in deep trouble here. I need some tunes to fire me up If you do not know this band ask Kid epigramman/Sir Colin he is swimmin with my Coconuts

Now that is better: If not for you,,, go back and listen to happy music.

So what I do is write. And I write. And in order to write I got to feel and I got to down with myself. And then I got to think and think. Then I got to feel it and love and get my feet a moving and maybe hug my little baby. I don't know I got to move and shake and get into my subject. No money and no honey changes my thoughts they just come.

I also walk a bit. Urban walking true outback wilderness walking and interior park walking and some times in my back yard walking like and elephant or tiger in a zoo.

But first I research and research and research. I got so much garbage in my head I scare me. From water quality and quantity in Africa to mountain elevations to Congressional daddy cats to sports figures to preachers. Oh heck I woke up at three last night needing to know about this crazy stuff:

Invertebrates Animals without a Backbone or Spinal Column:

Vertebrates, Animals with a Backbone

or Spinal Column: (All these animals are in the phyla Chordata and the subphyla Vertebrata.)

Protozoa (phyla: protozoa)Fish (group: Pisces)

Echinoderms such as starfish (phyla: Echinodermata) Amphibians

such as frogs(class: Amphibia) Annelids such as earthworms

(phyla: Annelida) Reptiles such as crocodiles (class: Reptilia) Mollusks such as octopus

(phyla: Mollusca)Birds (class: Aves)

You see I am a writer!

I cannot help it. I write.

No great surprise my children taught me to write during and absence and then my many travels.

Let me wrap with this.

I love you. Yes that is right. I do not know you but I love you. I really do. If I saw you anywhere I would give my life for you. That is not bull. It is real.

The point being: That is who I am and I do not waiver or strike deals or ask forgiveness from you. I exude love and all that goes with it. That is a strange position to take, or is it? That is who I am and I am building to let you know who I am. If my position is on sand, then you will likely not want to rest in the shadow of my house. But if it is firm, I will see you again and be here for you.

In a year my house will grow more and stronger. In two even more so.

I am a big old guy. I get to walk out front. I need you my readers mucho y mucho.

Each "hit", each "view" and each comment. Lifts me up!

All who read this are my hero's. You raise this daddy up. I could not make it without you.

I will not make a list here. But I will mention a few of my outstanding hero's that have helped me along.

Aren't these cool water buffalo. I have two sons both born under the Vietnamese sign of the buffalo

As is this authors want I will end with some thoughts

If we go charging into something blind and in a hurry. It may work and it has worked for me at times. And I got what I wanted. Trouble is that in all those situations it ended up being the wrong thing to want.

Winning is really cool but sometimes you take the prize home and it turns out to be the wrong size. Life is worth the time to take to master part of it as we go. But I do not think I would like mastering all of it --- shoot then what?

      What a nice surprise to see my name mentioned among such giants! HubPages is a great platform and we have such a lovely community. A writer cannot stop writing, and I've always enjoyed your well-written Hubs sprinkled with just the right dose of humor and warmth. Thank you for all the supportive despite your busy (and very important) schedule! Voted up and shared. : )

      I'm so glad I've met you, Eric. I enjoyed reading more about you personally in this hub, and I've enjoyed your comments in the Answers section. ;)

      I have to say that I was actually looking for you yesterday as I'm looking to find more good folks to follow here on HP, but I could not remember your name for the life of me. (I guess that's called "brain fart" at my age. Excuse the language. LOL.) But, I see that you are good friends with two of my favorite hubbers: Bill and Colin. I read Colin's reply to you, and it is a hoot. I love the humor you both have.

      I look forward to reading more of your hubs. I noticed the titles, and I know I am going to thoroughly enjoy them. Have a wonderful weekend, my new friend. :D

      P.S. Your little guy is so darned CUTE!

      I just have to mention, that is one cute little boy you have there Mr. Dierker! How very lucky he must be to have such a cool and awesome dad such as yourself. Your articles really inspire me to write my own and I always look forward to reading your next post. Though my time is limited I always keep a HubPages url open on my browser just in case.

      Thank you so much for your wonderful insight on life ;)

      My lady, I am a scoundrel. I use such greats as you for my benefit. I take what you offer and give so little in return. And yet you are still kind to me. What beauty lurks within your skin.

      To be just a writer is a very important status in life. Through your writing and your comments Eric you have given so much and I without a doubt vote this one up.

      Have a wonderful weekend and here's to so many words to flow.

      Arn't you and I a pair raggedy girl. Cookbook is like an SEO writer. I think India based. I love reading the stuff. So easy and really cool info on healthy foods. Though our cold pizza and warm ups are not on the table there.

      I don't know how to calculate that, but you are a very good writing. Thanks for identifying all of those hubbers. I know all of them except I need to check out her recipes, mine are not that great, well in truth I usually just microwave dinners that have already prepared.

      Fine ladies and gentlemen, that is a comment from the premier Hubber. Our accolades are almost nothing compared to billybuc ranking. He is around the 1.3 millionth mark. What that means, is that just by his skills, he is in about in the .001 top percentage article writers on the net. Or let me challenge you. There is no higher ranking for a teacher anywhere in the world for teaching us how to be writers.

      Read him and learn like I have. He is the teacher of the year! For the whole internet.

      Yes, you are a writer. I don't pay much attention to polls or see, I'm just a writer. :) Thanks for the mention; it's a pleasure following along on your journey.

      love and peace always
