I was just taking a look at my stats and none of my hubs have had any views in 24 hours. People give me great comments on my hubs, so I can't figure out why the view counts are so low.
I also notice that I have a lot more views when I check my analytics. Hubpages has me at around 500 views, while google has me at closer to 700. That is total views, not daily.
I have tried everything to get more traffic, and it seems the more things I do, the less traffic I get. Nothing people have suggested to me has worked at all. Are my hubs that bad?
There is nothing wrong with your writing style, but the subject matter may leave something to be desired as far as traffic goes.
No offense, but I am not really interested in your waist size or how heavy you are and I do not see how you would go about driving traffic to a page that discusses those subjects, so I suspect any advice you have been given is not going to work terribly well.
Personal ramblings (I speak from experience) generally do not attract a large volume of traffic unless you are already famous.
I suggest you do another hub on walking entitled "best walking shoes" and see if that can attract more traffic using the advice you have been given. Which is probably "leave links at other websites."
I didn't start getting consistent views until I went over about 20 hubs...
from that point on, I havent had a day with less than 50 views, so I'd say one of the keys is having more than a small handful of hubs...
Just so you know, my Walking hub is getting the most traffic so far, and has the best rating of all my hubs. Women seem to be very interested in it, where as men don't comment on it much.
I'm curious if you read the entire article. There is a lot more there than my waist size there. I have also received many nice comments on my photos in my walking hub. It is an article about walking and the advantages of it, and how to get the most enjoyment out of it, and how to do it without hurting yourself, and tips for your safety. Like not getting a horrible sunburn.
I guess my target audiencemight not be interested in it, however men and women do walk together. It may just be a way to get your lazy man to walk as well. Right?
I did not read past your waist size - no. I scanned the rest. If you want me to read something, you need to catch my attention in the first 100 words or so. I picked that one as having a relatively interesting title from the choices on your profile.
Just be patient. Traffic on each hub will come in waves. Solid backlinks will help create more consistent traffic as will more hubs.
The other thing you need is to promote them, writing them for search engine to find and letting them sit will take weeks or months to get any traffic and years to get significant traffic. Use blogs or or bookmarks to send syndications of a small interesting piece of the article.
I recommend trying to write a HubMob hub every week. Two of my most viewed hubs are HubMob topics I never would have chosen otherwise. Many hubber have said, you can never fully predict which hubs are going to be the successful ones.

I am experiencing that there is a very small traffic to my Hubs from Hubapages. It shows just 2 to 4 pages per day. On the other hand, the traffic sent from search engines is very high. Have you experiencing same thing?...

HP has always said do evergreen hubs. Politics is certainly not evergreen. it has a short "shelf-life" if it is about a current event. And since I would mostly write about U.S. politics, they might have...
