I've been here over 9 months now and am finally seeing bigger traffic increases coming from Google. I've heard hubbers say it takes a while before you see Google traffic but even after 6 months and 50+ hubs it was incredibly slow (average 30-45 views over a 30 day period).
Now I understand the winter season is approaching, which could partly explain why I've seen an increase but I imagine time has been a positive factor too. It'll be interesting to see if the steady Google increases continue.
Also my question is does editing of hubs help enhance Google traffic further. I imagine it would but am unsure of the scale of impact.
I'm still having a lot of trouble figuring which correct titles to use, and I agree that many of them probably won't help me with Google. I'll look into social media promotion via better images too.
I'm sure Google loves when everything is up to date and relevant, so a good edit will help any hubber. I definitely read a hubber mention it before. Thank you Susana S and WryLilt for your suggestions; they were most helpful.
Thank you for the additional input NateB11 and Farawaytree.
No problem. You could check out Wrylilt's Hub about using Google Suggest for getting titles for your Hubs to get more traffic. It's a good method. There are other methods, like keyword tools, but Google Suggest is pretty easy and is already right there on the search engine.
If you write Evergreen hubs, you won't have to update too much. You might get great views for a hub reviewing a current, popular video game, but after a short time it will be a has been, so you have to find some new trend.
On the other hand, if you provide good information on a topic of general interest, for example, how to swaddle a baby, that information is not likely to need updating very much unless there is some big, new change related to it.
This might be a complete co-incidence, but I switched to the new profile a couple of days ago, and today Google is pretending it doesn't know me. Hubs that ranked on the first page for main keyword are not found...
I have been struggling with Google traffic and finally out of frustration, I unpublished close to 30 hubs that simply weren't getting traffic.If I leave these unpublished for more than 30 days, will they look new to...
