I have published 14 hubs this month, 2 are already getting some serious organic traffic. It is really good to see, I felt for a while as if Hubpages had lost a bit of authority... I guess that had lost a bit of form when it came to Keyword selection... One is getting almost 100 page views per day from search engines already... Normally that means I am course for a winner.
I recently went through my 50 busiest hubs and about half of my other hubs and inserted an RSS feed which presented my 'Latest Hub', that really seems to have worked for me. I can now get 100 - 200 internal page views within the first 24 hours of publication, before you know it somebody has 'shared' or 'backlinked' and the hub is already well on its way. I am working now on stretching that out to every single hub, I want all 12000/15000 of my daily visitors to see my 'latest hub', I see that as a way of gaining a few nice early effortless backlinks from those diggers, tweeters, stumblers, facebookers, etc.
One happy bunny here...
Good job Ryan! I have a query about the RSS.
How do I pull my hubs into an RSS without having to put it into my private domain or blog? Just the link?
Just select 'insert RSS' and the replace my name with your usernanme into one of the following URLs....
That will bring up your best/latest/hot hubs in an RSS feed. I am generally just choosing to show my 1 latest hub. Occassionally, if the hub is very light, I shove a couple of my best hubs in another RSS.... especially if there is nothing better to link to. Generally though I just use an RSS to present my latest hub, insert a news capsule with a relevant keyword (normally 2 stories), and use the link box to try and drive traffic to relevant hubs in my portfolio.
That's great to hear. I went back to my traffic sources and it seems for the last 30 days, traffic from google is above even HP.
And Ryan, thanks for the tips on the RSS. I just tried it in one of my hubs and my RSS is there now
Thanks so much for your suggestion Ryan. I've tried this on a couple of my hubs and I've also seen an upsurge in traffic. Nothing like your traffic though!
If you insert the latest RSS feed, is there anyway to stop the hub you are inserting it on being on the list? Obviously that's when I use "latest" RSS feed.
Good for you Ryan!
Glad things are getting back on track for you.
Good work Ryankett. It's always nice when I see a lot more google hits than hubpages. I love getting juice from fellow hubbers, but it sure helps to get a high percentage of googliness!
Great advice! Thank you for the tip on the RSS feed. I had no idea.

I'm curious to hear if there are any hubbers, who saw a big drop in traffic after the most recent Google Panda and Penguin updates, have fixed their issues and are getting good traffic again yet?I think it would be good...

So I just completed my newest hub (even though its my 9th one, I still feel proud about it and now I was wondering how to promote the hub. My hubs seem to be dying, with some only getting several views daily, and I...

I'm trying to understand RSS feeds. I think the capsule is a reader that aggreates feeds from other websites, but I'm not sure

I'm pretty new at this, so I can really only gauge my hubs' performance against one another!This one is one of my earliest hubs, yet it has fewer views than ones that I've published just a few days...

Well, it seems to me that my traffic is never going to increase.I am lucky to get one hit a week now, and the only traffic I am getting is from google.I know that being away for a while doesn't help much, but none of my...

I really can't point any of you to the many discussions there were about whether RSS feeds that display our own Hubs in a specific Hub of ours are a violation of the HP rules or not.I read info that the...
