I was not amazed to see hubbers rack up 100+ hubs after being at it for a long enough time, for example, 2 years. People who seem to draw traffic like a magnet are talented in many specific areas. I get a little frustrated because I have not developed the skills of getting traffic and attracting readers. There seems to be something that I do not quite get, and I am not sue what it is. I see a lot of great topics with no traffic, and this frustrates me. Some are over a year old! Where are these hundreds of millons of people who surf the internet? When I read that tags have been discontinued, I wonder why I did not know, and I wonder if anything else has been discontinued. It seems that my hubs are not really "out there."
These are good hubber qualities that I have notice in fellow hubbers:
-People who show their faces, or someone's face, interest more people.
-Hubbers who show themselves friendly, positive, and interesting, and write interesting hubs attract more readers.
-Hubbers who understand and apply all of HubPages guidelines and tips on doing well seem to do better.
-Also, hubbers who have a lot of knowledge about computers, internet, resarch, getting traffic, etc. tend to do better.
-Hubbers who do not offend easily and can handle offensive commenters tend to attract and keep people.
-Responding to commenters truthfuly, honestly, courteously, and professionally, instead of getting emotional and too involved with certain commenters, seem to be a good approach.
-An author's ability to guide his/her hub well by keeping commenters focused on the topic and steering commenters away from heated or wasteful confrontations is a good skill.
-A polite hubber who treats all fairly is a winner.
People with these qualities seem to move fast! I am trying to hone my own skills a little better.
