Hello everyone, I've been writing on HubPages for a few months now and I'm following all tips and techniques such as using google keyword planner, posting often, creating many backlinks and have no spelling mistakes and perfect punctuation, but I'm still struggling to get views I currently have 33 hubs, but I'm only getting around 10-20 views a day what am I doing wrong?
Your content is interesting. So maybe better titles? That definitely helps. So for your bananas articles try "Peel and Eat: Fun facts about bananas." Something like that. Headlines and synopsis (not sure of the plural on that one) matter. If you have a FB page, link from there. It has increased my traffic dramatically.
Those dates indicate the last time the hub was updated/edited, not the publication date. As for my traffic: this account is a deserted wasteland, the other account actually pays quite a few of my bills every month. Perseverance pays.
What info is in your Hubs that can't be found anywhere else online? You have to ask yourself what info you have that is unique to attract readers. Otherwise writing on supersaturated topics like video games and celebrities and fruit can be hard to crack.
Jacob, I agree and that is even if you share your own personal experience. You think it is all yours and then you find someone else has written the exact same thing. There are too many writers on the internet right now.
There are a lot of original subjects still to be covered. If you cannot think of any, though, you are unlikely to garner a readership. I looked at the hubs on your profile and did not see anything new. With time, as paradigm search points out, you will probably break the 10,000 k mark. Unless you have some new content, however, you are unlikely to get a lot more. The "100 things to do in minecraft when you´re bored" looks like the most interesting hub you have. What about things to do in a park when you´re bored? Things to do in Glousteshire when you´re bored? Keep thinking about what might work. Do not worry about finding a great keyword and expect you are going to get those 10,000 searches a month. Someone else is probably writing about the same thing. Worry about being original!
Just skimming your titles on your profile page, if I wanted to know who Wiz, Dr. Dre, Eminem, etc were I would look them up on Wikipedia, not visit a content farm like HP. I'm pretty typical web surfer.
HP works best when you write things that can't be found on Wikipedia, like "How to..." or "Where to..." etc.
Your hub 100 Things to Do in Minecraft When You're Bored has potential. I think you could get more views if you elaborated more on each suggestion and included some pictures. Videos are great, but a lot of people browse at work and can't watch videos so easily.
I admit, I used to come to HubPages everyday to celebrate sales or money made w/ ads. Now I find no need...I remember the good ole days when I would get a payment every month or two from HubPages..Now it's been since...
I keep saying this but - this is probably one of the BEST ways I've found to get organic traffic and find out what people REALLY want to know. It's called Google suggest. You probably remember it as that little annoying...
Here's my problem, it's stagnant!I find that when a hub takes off the better performing ones fall back. My traffic has had the same average views for months even though a few of my hubs have finally gone wild.It's not...
