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 onΒ  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?

  1. I predict we’ll hit the 500,000 the hub on September 5th.

    I’ve already given myself my own personal HubChallenge for the next 30 days, so I’ll be doing MY part to help us reach that 500,000th hub! Anyone care to join me?

  2. Hey there KCC Big Country, I like your enthusiasm! I’m going to send you a message via your hubpages profile contact link. Catch you soon!

    PS: I predict August 14th.

  3. I predict September 21 – 27 given summer’s last holiday, end of summer family vacations, and school starting that will slow some hubbers down?

  4. I predict by 17 Aug 2009 we’ll hit 500k – “expotential” people – it has to be less than the time taken to get the last 100k

  5. I bet it will be in less than a month. I am glad that HubPages is getting so many Hubs! I am glad that my hubs helped. I am hoping that you guys update in another month and say that you’ve hit 500,000. I love HubPages. There are so many interesting reads here and it offers people the chance to earn on their hubs. I think this is why it has become so popular. Well, I’m in the middle of publishing another hub so I’d better get back to that!

  6. Fantastic achievement…. well done everyone…I think in about 1.075 months which would be about August 22nd, 2009.

  7. Hi, how can i put ads on my page? I’m having a hard time, i’m trying to work with adsense with google and i found this page but just like all others, i can’t start making money because your site is complicated to post links and ads!! So can you please help, i’m tired of going to all these websites saying “oh, its easy to create a webpage and make money” No its not! I can’t even post a simple link on my page, please help and tell me how its simple and easy to make money with your site??

  8. Well, I was hoping to personally reach 100 Hubs by mid-August but that won’t happen. So, mid-Sept and I would think if Hubpages keeps adding new Hubbers then mid-Sept is likely for 500,000.
