      Picking the right keywords is I believe vital. Knowing what they are is a different matter. A few years back you could do ok with 3 word keywords like best acne cures but I am certain those days are long gone.

      To rank on hub pages now you are looking at keywords that are 4-6 keywords long and even there some of those are still really competitive.

      My best way of getting traffic is to look at the first page on google and fin keywords that have forums on them or yahoo answers. If they exist then I can out rank them with a hub page.

      I hate back links so I don't do them and this is just a lazy man's alternative.

      Hi sonykuddi -
      There are many ways to increase traffic for your hubs - I am just discovering the tip of the iceberg but to summarise you need to:

      - Build quality hubs and develop your profile - and if you can find a niche subject to write about even better (this will make it easier for you to target hubs towards a specific audience).
      - Be active on hubpages - answer questions, ask questions, comment on other hubs, follow others (and you may get a follow in return)
      - Use social media - promote your articles on Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest (there are countless others). Find communities/interest groups in social media that relate to your hubs and then post links to your page when you engage in discussuions.

      Hope this helps.

      Fill up your tags, make the title long. Most keywords take care of themselves in the copy. The system is fickle sometimes.

        Do we still have a place to add tags? According to Google articles I have read on their site you should keep your title as short and precise as possible. Long titles over 65 characters get cut off also. The best way to get traffic is to write good content using a title with search terms that people are liking to put in when they search. Read and comment on other people's hubs and in the forums and join other social networking sites and writing groups and read others works and leave lots of insightful comments.

          You are right. However, titles like "How to Make Money on the Internet with a Computer" don't hurt.

          Yes, there is a place to add tags.

          Interior traffic from HubPages is a play date tea party. No one knows you have good content until they get there. They need to follow your rabbit into wonderland.

            Where would that be?  The button for tags that used to be next to the "group" button is gone, and has been for some time now.

            I guess you could create a text capsule and just fill it with random tags, but doubt that either google or HP would appreciate that - the grammar would be rather lacking.

          Hi HoneyBB you are correct about the titles and tags. That person "Driveby Quipper"is going through the forums and making bad suggestions so that he can confuse and discourage as many newbies as he can. Pity he does not stay underneath his bridge with the rest of the trolls.

    I find I can get a lot of traffic by using yahoo answers. I actually wrote a hub on that topic. I also find facebook is a great source for traffic. The real key is high quality content.

    I post my links outside of HubPages. Look into content curation where you post all sorts of links in a topic, including your own.

    The first step is always to writing something useful or entertaining, and generally fascinating--this helps the traffic find you.  Or as SEO types are inclined to say: "content is king".

    I have no techniques to increase traffic. Week after week I keep seeing a 15 - 25% steady decline in views. I long ago gave up on HubPages after they continued to make what I consider to be bad decisions.

    I agree that "content is king" because SEO and trying to get on the front page of google these days is HARD. 

    So by writing original and well thought out content filled with your keyword will really help.  Then share it with all your friends on Twitter, Google+, Facebook, LinkedIn, Pinterest, etc.

    Just write about things that are super easy for you to write about clearly, and usually the end product will be good.  Write about things that you just know more about than the average searcher, so you can give lots of people answers they are searching for.  As long as people on Google don't have too many similar articles, it seems to just work out.  Google traffic is what you want, social media has never really worked for me (the traffic in comparison doesn't last long now is as large; probably unless you go viral).  I also really don't think that researching the info right before writing an article would ever lead to an end product better than writing about something you already know about.

    Also scout out the competition, always know who 1) you're going up against 2) who you're writing for.

    The best ever technique I can think of to get traffic to your hubs is to eat a peanut butter sandwiche....your belly demands it!

    If you wanna to get more traffic on your hub pages then according to my point of view " content is king' just write unique and useful content for people that's why everyone like your post and came there  for reading your post.
    Share your page with social media sites like facebook, google +, twitter, pinterest etc.
