Can you use your hubs to demonstrate your writing skills? Someone put a nasty little doubt in my mind the other day by pointing out that prospective employers would find work with a lack of traffic off putting. What do you think, a useful way of showcasing your creative ability or urinating in the wind?
If they are looking to evaluate your writing I wouldn't think they would care about traffic. If they are evaluating your ability to promote your writing then the traffic and backlinks would matter.
Since only you should have access to your traffic stats what would a perspective employer or client see other than your score, and that of a particular hub except the talent you offer for evaluation? And since no one can identify, describe or quantify the meaning of these mysterious scores, apparently it means even less.
Of all the things hub pages might be, it is certainly good and easily accessible place to showcase a portfolio of work. Actually for me; other than the odd political rant now and than and some levity in the forums, that’s about all I use Hub Pages for.
Yep, readytoescape is bang on the money. It is an excellent place for setting up a portfolio - I have had some good contracts through HP
Kathryn, as an example of how well it can work, some of my clients now have articles written about their businesses posted here. These articles opened doors and generated contracts and agreements to do all their publicity and oversee advertisement as well as other work products.
To see the articles visit my profile and check out Readytoescape Lake County and the links from that hub
If people are just wanting to know about the quality of your writing skills traffic shouldn't matter.
If you are trying to sell SEO services, then you need to show high Google rankings for some high quality keywords, or high quality & volume of traffic.

I am experiencing an overall average off 66 percent less page views per day, for seven days versus a week previous and for the past two months. Such a huge drop in page views makes me think that Google has tuned...

Since I finished the apprenticeship, and after umpteen updates and changes made on HP, my traffic has never picked up. I can't remember the last time I saw any more than 40 views a day. My average at the moment is more...

I have had a few poems receive non-featured status. I've been able to revive them by adding a couple of text paragraphs to expound on the topic of the poem while maintaining the integrity of the poem. It lengthens the...

I'm not asking about why hubs get featured or un-featured. I kind of know that.The issue is: I just did a category search in my hubs, and found that, out of 292 published hubs, 149 are unfeatured due to low...

I have read somewhere here that google search engines take into account the page-views to compute ranking. Is it advisable to delete non-performing Hubs, those with 0 pageviews a day, as a way to increase traffic in an...
