This mightve been asked before, but my views and comments have dropped significantly the past week. I posted a new hub about a week and a half ago, and I haven't been getting near as many readers on it. What should I do to get viewers back?
You need to find where the traffic drops have come from, do you have Google analytics installed?
A Bit of research should help to show you exactly where things have been going wrong.
I might just, if I were you, look with a fresh eye at what you write that gets the most traffic, and comments. Then I would look at how you have responded to comments. Have you been short or snippy with anyone? (When I follow somebody I don't unfollow them)
You generally write about yourself, your beliefs, but this time you wrote about football. I am not a sports person really, but isn't Football season over?
My best hub, traffic wise, was about the Olympics, but it didn't get many comments. General stuff needs no commentary, but stuff that people identify with you, that's when they seem to read and comment.
It's probably because you haven't been active in the forums lately, since most of your traffic comes from within HubPages.
You need to be targeting organic traffic. You need google anaylitics to research this. Organic traffic is traffic from search engines and sites outside hubpages. Organic traffic is the only traffic that matters - these are your customers who click on your ads.
Do you have the right keywords? Have you the backlinks?

Just had a big drop on my profile score. And all my hubs were featured along with a steady 10 Editors Choice. I say 'were' because 3 were just unfeatured and I don't know what to do about that. My...

Have you noticed that you must be signed in to click on a hubber's name to go to their hubs? This does not seem good to me; it keeps readers from spotting hubbers they may want to check out and the traffic we are after...

It is said that organic traffic (Google, Bing, Yahoo, etc) should be our goal for increasing and maintaining real traffic. I've read in the forums that we shouldn't become dependent upon getting a lot of HP traffic, nor...

On a different HP account, not this one, I experienced a major surge in organic traffic to one article, like a few thousand visits, for a few days. Then, the traffic dropped to essentially what it was before the surge,...
