I would be grateful for an answer - or perhaps some pointers on how to turn that arrow around so it points up again. many thanks
Well, one thing I noticed is that when I added the summary to each article/story/etc, the views went up. Not incredibly, but somewhat.
When starting out at HP, most of your page views are from other hubbers. You need to have a lot more followers. In order to attract followers, you need to write more hubs that will interest them.
When you have a lot more hubs, you can worry about stumbleupon, Facebook, Pinterest, Flipora, reddit, scoop.it...you get the idea? The list is huge but start out here by attracting more readers and you will do fine.
Hi Dr. Mark,
Sounds like good advice. I'd much rather put the time into promoting my hubs off HP when I have a substantial number to promote. So far I've done zero marketing off HP, and my stats show it. But, if I'm reading the traffic section correctly, I do get a few visitors coming from google searches. But, you're absolutely right, new people should probably concentrate on building their hub base.
I joined a new site, since September, my views for my articles there are over 2000 right now which is not much less than views, in 2 years, here on HP. I get more external traffic there and I don't have to deal with having a Adsense account either, it is already built in.
2569 views in 2 years with HP. Over 2000 since Sept 2012 at new spot.
I think it is how the search engines keep changing their methods. I noticed a slight decrease in my hubs as well but at the same time they seem to still get a good deal of hits. I mean it is not the amount I was getting but it is good traffic.
Sometimes, it's tough to say. There are changes to backlinks and search engine algorithms. These can have an effect on the traffic you get.
Here is a link to my hub which explains it. http://lindasmith1.hubpages.com/hub/How … ur-Writing
