I have been waiting for this day since last fall. I thought that it might happen before the end of this month, and here it happened, on the 31st.
Google is now the top traffic source for my articles at HubPages. Prior to this afternoon, HubPages itself was the top traffic source. But slowly over the past several months, I have been getting a little more traffic from Google so that each and every day, the gap was closing.
Early on, I always wondered how people could get so much traffic from the search engines. Most of my traffic had been internal traffic and so I was amazed at what I had heard. But over time, the articles gradually worked their way into the search results. Truly patience has been virtuous in this regard.
Now, over 80% of my traffic overall at HubPages comes from various search engines including Google (US and international versions), Yahoo, and a little from Bing. All in all, it was a pretty exciting day for me. I look forward to being able to compare the amount of traffic in coming months and years.
