Hitting 10,000 views inside 2 months on Hubpages: Stats, earnings and more

Today (07/26/2012) marks another day to celebrate on Hubpages. I have finally hit the 10,000 mark page views since I joined Hubpages about two months ago, what makes it even more joyful is to reach this mark inside two months of my stay here. Off course, this would not have happened without the help of other hubbers and the wonderful Hubpages community.

I would say that when I first joined Hubpages, I was not very sure how I would go about it, I was not sure if I could write online or if I will ever have any followers here. At this stage, I’m sure a novice can write on Hubpages and make a successful online writing career.

My bio at the time of writing this hub

My bio at the time of writing this hub

I find writing about stats being very helpful and myself I have read other hubbers’ stats to evaluate my trend on Hubpages. Some of these hubs about stats contain useful information that can be worthy reading especially on writing hubs and progress.

I have found myself peeking on those stats when I wanted answers to different questions on page views and traffic. Well, it never occurred to me that one day I will write about my personal stats but that time has come now.

This is my 45th hub and since I joined Hubpages I have learnt a lot about online writing but I still feel I have a lot learn. I have not used any keyword research on my hubs since I’m yet to learn about the use of keywords although I could have used keywords unknowingly. One thing I have done actively is to promote my hubs on other sites for backlinks.

I have built stacks on Delicious.com, created chimes on Chime.in, created pearls on pearltrees and also shared links on Digg, RedGage, Stumbleupon, Facebook, Twitter, Google+, eHow, Pinterest, Blinklist and Reddit (before Reddit blocked URLs from Hubpages). When I learnt how to use RSS, I submitted my RSS to Google, Bing, Yahoo search and Babylon.

The stats listed below are from 44 hubs and at the time of posting this hub, my bio is reading “Joined 2 months ago”. In my 2 months here, I have not managed to reach a hubber score of 90 or more. The best I had was 89 and at the time of writing this hub my hubber score is reading 83.

Hubber score does not really bother me and from what I have gathered from other hubbers, this should not be an issue so long as the score is above 75. That is not to say i don’t wish to have a hubber score of 100, I wish for that and I long for that day when i shall hit a hubber score of a cool 100 but in the mean time, i'm comfortable with my hubber score.

NB: All the earnings above are from the month of June 2012 up to 07/25/2012. I got my AdSense account towards the end of May 2012 so prior to that i was not earning.

For those who would like to know if it is possible to get AdSense account Within a month for non-US citizens, I want to assure you that it is possible unless your country is among the restricted countries by Google.

By the time i got AdSense account i had written 14 hubs, so probably you also need to check on that as you should have enough content on your site before you apply for AdSense account.

My next move is to write more of evergreen articles that will drive long lasting traffic and also apply use of article marketing to my hubs. A number of my good performing hubs are about London Olympics and I know it is just a matter of days before the traffic start falling on those particular hubs.

Probably I should check on how one can turn a spike article into an evergreen article if at all it is possible. I also want to learn more about Keyword research as I have not used keywords effectively in my hubs, may be that is why I have performed poorly on Amazon and AdSense earnings although I have used Amazon capsules on two hubs only.

About my progress on Hubpages, I want to be more active and contribute more by participation. One area I have not ventured fully is in forums mainly because I wanted to learn the loops and rules of being in the forums.

My plan is to be more active now and especially in forums. May be I should also take the 30 hubs in 30 days challenge and see how I will perform. Overall, I like it here on Hubpages and I’m really enjoying writing on Hubapges. Thanks my fellow hubbers and thanks Hubpages community.

Two days after posting this hub, the best performing hub has sky-rocketed in views from a daily average of 163 views to 496 views. This particular hub is about London Olympics and I particularly noted this increase after the opening of Olympics games.

Daily page views from all hubs have increased from 612 to 1,539 and weekly page views moved from 3,077 to 5,142. This I can only attribute to the other hubs which are doing good as well.

Thanks for this insightful article, Dan.

Hi DIYmommy,

Congrats on reaching 10k views mark on Hubpages, i wish you more success in writing. I do appreciate the visit and comment.

It's ironic I should find this hub now, as I just surpassed 10,000 view yesterday! Fairly new to HubPages, I've been writing for a little over a month now, and have almost 70 hubs! I admit, it's very VERY addicting. Thanks for the great hub and congrats on your accomplishments!

Hi dwachira,

Great hub packed with useful info. I wish you good luck in your Hub Pages journey. I have returned after a long break and have started learning ways to make more hubs and improve my traffic.

The main key to success here lies in making as many hubs as possible (good ones of course) within a short time.

I am sharing it across the community so that other hubbers can also benefit from reading this hub.

Thanks. Cheers, Rema.

Stephen Govoni from Coastal Massachusetts on August 18, 2012:

All I can say is Wow. Exactly what I'm aspiring to do! Good Job dwachira! This takes hard work and dedication, and a little intuition. Smart idea to write an article about the London Olympics, certainly would catch some attention! We all have much to learn from you! Good luck.

Hi nikkiraeink, i can feel what you are saying and sometimes it can be very frustrating. I suggest you keep on increasing your effort little by little and soon you shall see the results. Thanks for the visit and comment and i look forward to seeing you more on Hubpages. Enjoy your day.

nikkiraeink from So. Cal. on August 04, 2012:

Congratulations, dwachira! Honestly, I have to say I'm very jealous. I've been here for four years and still haven't met 10,000 views. In fact, I barely pull in 10-40 views a day. I'm struggling. I know a lot has to do with how often I publish so I'll definitely take responsibility for that.

I look forward to following your HubPages journey and learning more from you.

Danson Wachira (author) from Nairobi, Kenya on July 30, 2012:

Thanks barbergirl28 for stopping by and commenting. Backlinks are useful for payback but i found the trick is not to look like you are a spammer by posting too much links. Am very careful when i share my links on other sites as i don't want to be blacklisted.

The trick is, once you join a site, do not start posting links right away, be a regular member of the site and even gain some followers. That way you'll establish your own group and you'll feel comfortable posting a link and not look like a spammer. Enjoy your day.

Stacy Harris from Hemet, Ca on July 30, 2012:

Wow - those are amazing stats for being here for such a short time. I never really got into the backlinking because I always felt that I was spamming too much. But maybe I should rethink that strategy. While I love the hubpages community, the type of views that will pay are the ones that you don't know who they are coming from. Well done and congratulations on hitting such an impressive milestone!

Danson Wachira (author) from Nairobi, Kenya on July 30, 2012:

Thanks kashmir56 for the visit and comment, actually i wouldn't have made it this far without hubbers like you. Thanks.

@chrissieklinger, thanks for the visit and commenting. I'm taking your recommendation seriously as there are lot of benefits of taking the apprenticeship program. I will check the details now. Thanks a lot.

chrissieklinger from Pennsylvania on July 28, 2012:

I recommend applying for the Hubpages apprenticeship program. You will learn a lot about how to drive traffic to your articles and write articles that will make you money for years. PLUS, you will get to know a great, small group of Hubpages writers very well!

Danson Wachira (author) from Nairobi, Kenya on July 28, 2012:

Danson Wachira (author) from Nairobi, Kenya on July 28, 2012:

@TIMETRAVELER2, thanks for your kind words and congrats on getting your first payout, it must be a great day. I long for that day too. Thanks also for your support here, i really do appreciate and i must say you are doing very well. 100 hubs in 6 months must be really hard work. Have a nice time.

moonlake from America on July 28, 2012:

All seems to be working very well for you. Great job. Looks like you have worked very hard.
