I have started a blog few months back. I couldnot get much views. Is there any way to increase the traffic?
Share each post via your social media networks, and make sure to use hashtags on Twitter and Facebook, so people outside of your friend/followers list can see your posts as well. Browse other blogs that are in the same niche as your blog, and start communicating with their authors/visitors by following the blogs you like and regularly leaving comments. Always fill out the "website" field of the comment section, so that every comment of yours links back to your blog. Visit some popular communities of website/blog owners, like WarriorForum and Digital Point Forums, find the threads that are relevant to your niche and try promoting yourself. Submit your blog to all the popular blog directories (just Google "blog directories" and you'll see plenty of options). Optimize your blog for SEO: use appropriate tags for every post, make sure your post titles and title tags are optimized, etc. If you are using a content management system, most probably it already has some SEO tools for you to use, take advantage of them. Hope this helps, and good luck!
You've created a blog which has no focus. It doesn't matter what you do to promote that blog, it will never do well because Google can't work out what it's about.
Here on HubPages, you can write about a mixture of topics. If you're going to create a blog, you need to choose ONE subject and stick to it. The blog's name needs to say what the blog is about, too. Then you need to post regularly, say once a week, and offer useful information on your subject.
You will get some natural readership just by doing that. Then learn more about promotion.
I put this up for you so you can find something solid for yourself.
Create content that is of your interest and also the audiences. This way, you can write something you like and they are also able to find it.
One great continual source for me is Yahoo Answers. I've answered maybe 40 questions.
Sometimes I only answer questions that I have an article about, and then I use that as the source. I get 10 - 20 views per day on my website from Yahoo Answers from just the few questions I answered. 40% are Best Answer though.
Yahoo Answers hit Googles first page all the time. People are looking for problems, maybe one of your hubs has the solution.
I use to share my posts in google+ and the posts will be view for some few minutes and after that there will be no pageviews. If i dont post for one or two day the page views will be zero. How can I overcome this?
Start by linking your blog to your HubPages profile... I tried clicking the website link on your profile, and it said "the blog has been removed." Make sure all of your links are always working, otherwise you are losing traffic.
How often do you post on your blog? Update your Google+ every time you publish a new post, not just once in a while. Publishing on your blog regularly is also key to getting better traffic. Building up a lot of content brings traffic, too. And SEO is everything. Have you tried optimizing?
Write about something that people want to read and for which there is limited competition online - write it well and do all of the SEO that you should and you will get traffic......
Write about what no one is searching for, write in areas where there is a huge amount of competition and try to cheat google and you will get no traffic...
Write for the benefit of the person reading - not your adverts and products etc..
I have taken a look at your profile, Joel, and can offer the following advice. Most traffic should come from search engines, so you don't have to keep trying to get it through social media. Also since your topics are not common topics, the social media aspect probably wouldn't help you much anyway. Don't get me wrong - they are good topics for students, and learning in general, but the average person isn't going to be tempted to click on an engineering hub.
So here's what you do. Read everything you can about SEO - most of it will be contradictory, but the main thing is to write your hub using words and language that the common person would type into a search engine to find the hub. (I have trouble with this too).
I read the "Easy Understanding of Working of Transformer" hub. I would recommend changing the title since most people wouldn't Google "understanding". Maybe something like "How Does a Transformer Work?" or Easy Ways to Understand How a Transformer Works." You did a great job putting subtitles in your hub. I would change "Why transformers are used in the power system?" to "Why are transformers used in the power system?" and "Basic parts present in the transformer" to "Basic Parts of a Transformer".
Other than that, give it time. It takes a while for Google to start trusting a hub enough to bring it up. In the meantime, I recommend reading more things written in English. Even though your English is very good, it is clear that it is not your first language. Reading will help you learn how to use articles ("A", "an", "the") and what order to put words in a sentence.
I wish you the best here.
Thanking for your suggestions.You really helped me. But the names you have suggested are already existing. Initially I have given simple titles but every single title that I gave was already there. Can changing the names really work out?
Yes, titles are very important. And to a lesser degree so are subtitles. The search engines use them to make sure that the searcher are being sent to the right site. The better you are able to match your titles to the search terms, the better the fit. The search engine will see the matches and put your hub (or blog post) higher, and the more likely the searcher will be to click because they know your article will give him / her the info he or she needs.
Ultimately you need to produce content people are looking for. If you do they will tend to find it.
Most of the content people are looking for are already available in number of websites...
Yeah, what everybody else said. Just keep writing about things people want to read about. Keep sharing them on Facebook, Twitter, etc....sometimes, re-share them over and over again.
It is a good idea to proofread, proofread, proofread or have friend do it. No matter how many times you think that all of the mistakes have been found, check again, especially if you edit.
Also go to Google (or your browser) and search for your topic and see what keywords are mostly used. Add keywords to your Hubs but not too many.
Take down the spamy 'virus' popup ads... For starters.
Then, spill your guts and cater to every possible need of your target readers. Consider the perspectives of different mindsets.
Then, seek traffic generation if it hasn't already arised.
'Great content has a way of mystically attracting views from thin air.' Versus the trying to force people to view your content through aggressive seo approach. That's not nice.
You can increase the traffic to your site by SEO. Link building is a part of SEO and you can build links by forum posting, blog commenting, web 2.0 submissions, social media sharing, guest posting and participating in Q&A sites. Remember, content is the king and give more focus to your content. Good content will bring more traffic to your site.
Use the search bar at the top and you will find MANY hubs and forums answering this very question. Instant traffic doesn't happen. Regular promotional efforts are best. Did you know, a major PRO blogger, has a VA promote his posts, 4X a day?
Blogs are generally focused on a single topic and yours is not. You might try starting over with a new blog.
1.Write to follow your passion
2.You may want to research literature on your subject from hard copy books.
3.Add a reflexive angle ideally how the subject you chose affects you or a community you have in mind. This will influence interest and provoke your readers.
Wish you the best.
First of all try to update new and unique content frequently. Then after you can use social media sites like facebook, reddit, twitter, pinterest, stumbleupon and many more.
I see that many of your posts are copied and not looks genuine. For getting more traffic, you need to write your own unique content yourself. Try removing others content from your site and add your own. Google is smart, it can recognize that you are using someone else content. So it will give your site last rank. So it is important to use unique content.
All great responses, and well worth reading, thank you. As many have pointed out, write what you enjoy writing. Building a following takes time - you may as well enjoy it as you go. Also, after a bit of time, reread these sort of articles; I learn so much more from them once I have actually done hubbing/blogging for a while.
Content is king. Focus on your blog's content and write about highly searched keywords.

But I am wondering why there seems to be competition in the real google world and no competition showing for it in the external keyword tool world?
