Anyone who has read my hubs - all romantic poems - and who is also a poetry writer. take some comfort from this. I have banished the ZZzzz from my hubs. How?
I made sure they all now have summaries. Checking them on Google now - they have neat summaries that help explain what each hub is about. I also updated my tags in the hubs, as I had previously not paid good attention to the tags. Finally, I gave some photos and artwork on my hubs an polish and updated a few. They look newer, even though they are the same poems. And my score is maintaining it's place. I am also using social media more to link back to my hubs. I just followed the simple suggestions from Hub Pages themselves, and thank you for the simple suggestions.
How have you found the experience of the "zeeez" on your hubs, poetry or otherwise?
I don't do poetry Hubs but when the "attack of the Z's" hit a couple of weeks back I started going back into the ones that had been tagged and changing some capsule headings, adding some polls, and updating some info that had gone out of date, and for now they seem to have returned to active duty. Several of them have seen an up-tick in views so I guess that means I did it right.
The only one that I haven't been able to do much with is a year-old Hub I wrote about the sudden death of a rock singer. There's not much I can do to "update" that one... the guy's still dead.
Thank you for your advice on increasing traffic on your poetic hubs. How do you add a summary after a hub has already been published ? Thank you
Hi Austinhealy... Super easy to add summaries after posted. Go to your account
Go down to the Hub that has an A beside the title. Click edit. Over on the right under "convert to video" Are 5 headings.
Click on summary and write a 2 or 3 sentence summary about your Hub.
Click "done editing" and your reposted with your summary.

I joined HubPages about 1 year ago and I have only written 13 hubs. Out of these 13 only 2 hubs are getting good traffic. That's why I deleted 11 hubs and left these 2 hubs on here. I'm not sure if I should go on with...

As I have found today! I was led to believe that hubs of 75 and over were worth holding on to but obviously not! I just had one with a score of 81 getting the zzs!
