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.

Now, not before, when you place a link, you have a choice to click rel=nofollow so that search engines ignore it. So in future hubs that you write or if you want to go back and edit, do not check this box for links to...
