I came across a hub about sticking to a particular niche of interest. Say for instance i write about SEO i should only stick to seo so that its easy for my audience to find me. Could that be why I do not get traffic to my hub as I write about a lot of topics I have interest in. Please help I need advice on improving traffic. thanks
Welcome to hubpages. The best way to use this forum is to post a link to a specific hub that you'd like to have reviewed.
In my opinion? Don't stick to a niche unless you know tons of stuff about seo, keywords and backlinks. If you don't know, basically.
"Throw mud at a wall and see what sticks."
So basically, write on a whole range of topics. When you find a topic that does well, write more on that topic but from a different angle.
Each hub is, to google, one stand alone page. Visitors it sends to your hubs may never view another hub you've written. So each hub has to be good enough to both get search engine hits and also to.
I only took a quick look at your hubs. There's one problem that immediately jumps out at me.
All your topics are very mainstream. Unless you write an article that is in depth, stunning, has great information, length, pictures and more, don't even think of ranking well for a topic as widely written about as "How to lose weight" or "Black evening dresses". You need to find things that get less traffic but also have less competition - you should probably learn about keyword research for a start...
(As a hypothetical example: You may not be able to rank well for a highly searched topic such as cars. But if you try and rank for something like "blue striped cars" there's a lot better chance of getting hits.)
Thank you for taking the time to look. Funny you should say, the most traffic i have had was even on the black evening dress. luck i guess.
- For the length, i read a hub that says btw 350 and 400 is good enough so that your viewer does not lose interest
-where can i get more info on the keyword research. thank you for your time
Type 'google keyword tool' into google. Goto the first link. Always search using the 'exact' button ticked. It's best to target keywords with between 5000-15000 hits a month.
Hubs should generally be between 400-1500 words in my experience.
