You know, there’s really nothing like some good news to get your day moving in the right direction. Well, a couple of days ago my day was definitely kicked off the right way after Larry sent out an email to the entire HubPages team that let us all know that we had just hit a HUGE HubPages milestone — we had officially broken through the 400,000 Hub mark. Of course, after I read Larry’s email I had to go and see for myself over on the HubPages stats page and when I caught my first glimpse at our overall stats I quickly realized that he wasn’t kidding — we had really hit 400,000 Hubs (and growing)!
I guess that I wasn’t that surprised that we had hit the milestone (I knew it was just a matter of time), but I was pretty surprised that we had hit it so quickly. As you can see in the stats below, the overall Hub production on HubPages has really been gaining momentum over the past year or so:
- First Hub was published on June 28th, 2006
- 100,000th Hub was published on April 23rd, 2008 (20 months later)
- 200,000th Hub was published on October 30th, 2008 (8 months later)
- 300,000th Hub was published on April 23rd, 2009 (5 months later)
- 400,000th Hub was published on July 14th, 2009 (2.5 months later)
It’s pretty easy to see that the amount of Hubs that are being published are growing at an exponential rate, which is obviously due to the fact that we have the most awesome Hubbers, ever and that we’ve all started to get the HubPages name out there a bit. It’s great to see the growth and it’s great to see that we’re doing it all by helping our Hubbers publish content and make some cash.
Keep up the great work, everyone and if you have a guess for when we’ll hit the 500,000 Hub mark (we’re at 402,237 now), leave it in the comments! I’m going to say that we’ll hit it in 2 months even — right around the middle of September. What do you think?
