I was just tooling around in Analytics with my husband, and we noticed that 24 people have arrived at my Hubs after typing "steelhead trout recipes" into Yahoo Search.
I do not have a single Hub on recipes of any kind, nor do I have one on trout.
Fully half those people arrived at my profile, while the rest were scattered about, one per page. Only half of them bounced - the others spent up to 35 minutes reading my Hubs.
Now, if I can attract steelhead trout afficionados when I have nothing in the least trouty to offer them, surely your trout recipes Hub must be pulling some serious page views by now? The trout crowd are obviously biting at just about anything ...
P.S. Since it's mainly my profile, maybe that means that Yahoo thinks I'm an old trout ...
Not you, Jenny!
I admit to having trouble navigating around Analytics to work out stuff like this. I tend to log in, look at the number of views and log out again! Maybe one day I'll get around to figuring out how to use it...
LOL, lol ......... great way to begin a Monday morning here in the UK.
But seriously thanks for the great SEO tip - us newbies need all the help we can get
LOL, your visitors should have been real bees - I was not able to find your profile on the first five pages and gave up
I did find Mark's hub on the second page however, and this makes me thinking he should be getting some visitors from there - and makes me kinda proud
That would be all the Hubs about Christianity, wouldn't it?
I suppose the one about the various zombie gods would smell of rotten fish, in that case?
Well, I am not going to go anywhere near the old trout reference. That seems a little too much like a "Do these jeans make my ass look big," sort of statement.
Thanks to Misha's advice. I have seen a MASSIVE jump in traffic. I am now getting the sort of visitors I could only have dreamed of a few weeks ago. Sometimes as many as 14 a day
Here's the proof:
I have to say, I get some weird visitors and google seems to mix up the hubpage tags for some reason. Think "sexy Indian Girls in their underwear.
Mark - you seem to have put the wrong graph up - obviously the "2" should be "200" visitors today - we don't want to mislead people with how easy this IM stuff is <insert sarcastic smilies>
Can I show mine too (tongue in cheek); http://terryg-tips.blogspot.com/ - Just enlarge the screen shot.
Correct linking and social networking works with anything really. There is no reason why anyone's hub page should not hold the top 6 or 7 positions on page 1. Here's proof and I think the keywords still hold similar positions.
Traffic is in the kay's and nicely targeted as well.
Ya, I have noticed a huge number of visitors from Steelhead trout recipe and recipes too. I thought that maybe somebody just always enters hubpages through a google search for steelhead trout, but that seems pretty ludicrous. I guess tons of people find hubpages that way that are keenly interested in following a lot of links. Maybe Mark stumbled across some unexpected correlation between people who like cooking trout and people who like the HubPages format.
One day, the Hot Hubs section will be as full of trout recipes fishing for new Referral recruits instead of hubs about celebrity butts.

Hi Guys,Just thought I would share some of the changes I made which have had a positive result on my Google placings. Just to fill you in, the Feb Panda update hit me hard (40%-50% loss of traffic), and the subdomain...

Ok...I have a silly question. Whenever I visit a fellow hubber's profile page I can see "Some of X's favorite topics" and the hubs categorized under each topic listed. I could not find how I can mark my...

I am primarily a niche writer, (health/medical hubs) but I write short stories, reviews and opinion pieces too. My articles are all thrown in together on the list on my profile when visitors look over my hub...

This place ehealthydietblog is taking recipes off our hubs and it ranks as number one when I searched for one of my reicpes. You know it would get the views before we would with the ranking it has.

There seems to be a lot of spamming going on, on here, with fake accounts advertising... Has anyone else noticed? Or maybe the increase is just my imagination?

This is the elusive subject that I continue to struggle with and yes sometimes resentful. I'm here, searching around, getting ideas, and I hop on the hub of the day. First thing on the page is a broken...
