My hits have just hit one thousand and since then my traffic has just stopped dead. My profile is like a ghost town. Is my writing that bad? Need help fast before I lose interest.
It happens sometimes, but you will see the increase in traffic again soon. Just keep on writing and learn about SEO to optimize your hubs for external traffic (for visitors outside Hubpages). Interact in forums and check the questions & answers section. Type in SEO (in the Hubpages search box) and you will find many useful hubs on the topic. I recommend that you read hubs on this profile:
Keep on hubbing! :-)
Not to worry. Ignore your hubs for a time, come back and you'll see movement.
It took me a while to understand that traffic goes up and it goes down, as do clicks. When numbers are low (as yours almost certainly are with only 16 hubs) that means it doesn't take much to produce near numbers near zero. Statistically it means nothing except that such things will happen.
For example, January produced, in 3 days, the only 2 days I've had since early September with no clicks and one more day with 1 click for $0.00. A disappointment? Sure, but it isn't a disaster yet. I used to get excited when that kind of thing happened, but have learned better.
If your traffic remains near zero for a month, then worry. Until then keep writing.

I joined hubpages quite a while ago, and posted a few hubs, maybe six or seven. But I never got any traffic at all. I had like three hits the first two days and then they sat there for a weeks and not a single hit. SO I...

I have just started, so I dont expect it in the near future, but how many hubs, or how many months before you start making money? How much traffic is considered to be good traffic? Right now I am getting...

Hi,I've signed up and am ready to start making hubs in my specialised subject, but I was wondering what the earning potential of hubbig (if that's a word) actually is. I realise it all depends on how attractive your...
