It's encouraging to see that my traffic has been picking up recently, and my best performing hub has today broken the 100 barrier for the first time, achieving 105 views in the last day. My combined total is just 210 (from 36 hubs), so this one hub is receiving half my total views. And my total is still a bit below its best (it almost reached 250 once), but has been improving in the past few days. I know 100 views to a hub is nothing compared to what some people do, but its a bit of a milestone to me. Anyone else noticing increases in general or to specific hubs?
Well a factor I have noticed when it comes to promoting hubs now is that if you want the hubs to skyrocket to a decent amount of traffic is to use the resources available through hubpags itself to start with.
-Write in the forums and reply to questions
-Post your hubs on facebook, especially in groups pertaining to your topic.
-Since you are into bodybuilding maybe going to bodybuilding.com's forums and have your hubpages profile linked in the signature when you discuss things on those forums also.
-Make sure to write the best you can so the hubs can be featured
-Check for gramatical and spelling errors and update your hubs if you get more information on that exact topic like let's say you talk about how to build your biceps faster. If you see a new product or a new method (mine mainly being hammer curls and other dumbell exercises) add it to your post if you havent already.
-Don't abuse keywords, and make sure the articles are concise. If you ramble too much you lose the visitor. That doesn't mean be short and dont elaborate. What I mean is say what you need to say, keep it organized and neat, and make sure you get the point across.
-Another great method is when you write your hubs is to bold print any main points you are making even if they arent at the beginning of the paragraph. This way those who "Skim" hubs can get the point if they are in a rush (some people won't read 1500 words they just want the highlights, not me in particular but I know people are like that).
Thank you Raven. Yes those are some good points. I'll take a look at the bodybuilding.com forum and maybe some others that allow signatures. Your idea of bold printing main points is a good one too. I was in a couple of Facebook groups but have neglected them recently.
Congratulations! Hope I can reach that in a few months.
Congratulations! I see a surge from time to time. I make sure to check my traffic sources so I can see if I can't duplicate the success. It is possible that the hub was shared - on Facebook, Pinterest, or a message board. I especially love it when it came from a search engine.
Yes I agree; search engine traffic is best if you can get it. I'll check my traffic sources as I haven't done that for a while. Thanks for the reminder.
Amazing stuff, hopefully I can reach that in a few months.
Excellent! That is something to celebrate about. I have a couple hubs that surge like that in a day. They do make up the bulk of views of my 64 hubs.
That's pretty good! When I was in the apprenticeship program I remember them saying that over 100 views on a hub in a day is a good sign. A lot of people struggle to get that in a week. If you are getting that many views, I think your hub is on the right track. Congrats
Thank you everyone. Yes I hope you do make that soon ilikegames.
It's interesting how they rise and fall isn't it? But this one is a consistently good performer. Never been this good before though. Wonder how long it will last.
Did you find the apprenticeship program useful The KatsMeow?
A really catching picture posted on Pinterest linked to one of my most useful hubs suddenly made that hub reach over 6000 views per day a few months ago. It dropped off but still fluctuates between 700 and 1500 views per day. Yet all the views in the world still won't necessarily make you any money. In fact, for a long time, the income from that hub was quite meager compared to some of my other hubs with far fewer views per day.
So this is what I learned: to really take advantage and make money from such a viral hub, I edited it to make sure it contains some expensive relevant eBay and Amazon products and a good scope for the HP ad program to function well. Now at last the views are reflected in raised income from that hub.
Thanks for that tip Sue. I really must look at Pinterest. Seems a lot of people are having success driving traffic with this site.

Do you use social media to bring traffic to your hubs? What are your favorites?

I'm bored. Ok correction, I'm procrastinating. I randomly come on and off the forums and on this return visit I've seen SO many people questioning why their hubs aren't making money and/or getting traffic.So for as long...
