If you can tell me why I'm only making about $1.50 a month it would be appreciated. Please be nice so I don't get too upset. Thanks.
I should have added, I've studied SEO but I'm not sure I'm using it properly. I am looking at the keyword tool, but don't feel totally comfortable about that either. I'm adding 5 backlinks to new hubs.
Am I choosing the wrong subjects, titles etc. I feel comfortable with my content. Thanks for any help.
I wish I had the time to look at all of your hubs, but sadly I don't. I did look at "How to Grow Lilies"--a really good keyword. Unfortunately, another hubber has that keyword locked and loaded and squarely sitting on Google's page 1. It may be tough to beat.
IMHO, you need to figure out keyword research before worrying about backlinking. It's about choosing the right keywords that will attract the right audience with competition that is beatable.
I guess I need to start checking Google's search engine too to see what come's up when I type in my subject. I wasn't aware that another hubber had the number one spot for that keyword. Thanks for the feedback.
Here are some of my thoughts.
You joined 7 months ago, so you're kinda new. Sometimes, even with a great keyword topic and good title, it all depends on the ads you get on your hubs. For example, your butternut squash hub got ads on recipes for squash, so maybe write another hub on nothing but recipes for squash.
I really liked your hub, "Write it and they will come?" You really hit it there. Believe it or not, I think you have something going on with your hubs. Eventually, I believe you will write an inspired hub you wrote that will surprise you in how many people come to read it!
A few suggestions:
- Add more pictures or videos to your hubs.
- Add a news capsule or a feed capsule to your hubs.
- Try out the Title Tuner for some of your older hubs and see if you can bring in more new traffic. It has worked for me to some degree!

This has happened to me a few times. I'll leave a comment or give an answer in the Q&A section... and I will get attacked (for lack of a better word) by some other Hubber who has a different point of view or...

This is actually three questions.1) Is the average of all of the individual HubScores significant in any way? Does that number affect or change anything?2) In discussions of the Suggested Links Tool and HubKarma,...

Wow! What do you do when someone writes a hub attacking you personally because you deleted a comment they posted to your hub?

I respect the work of many hubbers, but at the very top of my list is 'peeples'. I am a great fan of this extraordinary woman and when you go to her profile page you will see why. Peeples is now homeless. Follow this...

Yes, yes, I know. Research good keywords, write quality content, etc etc.But practically speaking, how do you actually drive traffic? I'm looking for concrete, specific answers instead of the generic advice everyone...
