    I've never written a hub that has taken off like wildfire. What topics are popular among readers?

      Your hubs all look like hot topics to me.

        Thanks, Kathryn. I've worked hard on them but just can't attract readers. I've read about SEO and keywords and titles and I still can't get out of the starting blocks, I'm getting discouraged.sad

          How are you becoming discouraged?

      I just read one of your hubs, which is really awesome by the way, about busy people. Your writing is superb, so if you find a way to make SEO work, you will get traffic.

      I've found personally that I have to go outside my own subject matter, the subject matter that I've generally concentrated on. My main area that I know about is martial arts. Unfortunately if I want to get traffic in that subject matter I'd have to constantly write about sparring gear and martial arts shoes. It's almost that bad. People just don't search the Net for martial arts. Therefore, I've written about a lot of other things. Sometimes you have to experiment, but I'd advise experimenting using SEO techniques.

    Be sure to pin your articles to Pinterest . I am getting a lot of traffic from there - much more than Google anyways.

      Thanks. I've been doing that without much success, but I'll keep trying.

    Thanks, Nate, for the compliment and advice. I wish Hubpages would be more helpful. I like to write, but all the SEO stuff is beyond me.
