Hey all you great hubbers, tell me please, what´s wrong with my hubs, i only get about 5 pageviews a day, are they really that horrible.
I know i only have written 12 hubs, but i still think, that 5 pageviews a day, and some days none, sounds like there´s something wrong.
What can i do.
Maybe take a day off from the gym and start focusing more on your Hubs?
HA! I kid, I kid....sorry, couldn't resist.
I'll take a look here in a few...thanks for posting.
You can add Number of Tags to your Hubpage. Your Tag only brings you more Traffic..
Ha ha ha, non taken ryan, thanks for taking a look on them my friend
any help is welcome
Hi JT. For what it's worth they are a little short, and don't seem to be keyworded so search engines would not be attracted to them. They don't at first glance to be keyword rich at all (in fact I had a hard job telling what the keywords were if there were any) - which means search engines won't find you.
And you do need to promote your hubs - using the share link and sending to friends etc.
Plus, if a visitor DOES view, I think you're in danger of losing them (bouncing) very quickly. Why? You might want to invest a little time in WORD or a similar package to spell and grammar check?
We all make mistakes but the first hub of yours I looked at had a 4 word title, all in lower case and 2 of the 4 words were mis-spelled. That's not meant to be overly critical, but someone reading that might not even get past the title. They look at the page, read the title and get turned off by the error because if they're looking for quality info (which is what you seem to be aiming at which is good) BUT if you can't spell the title right, they might think "and what level of accuracy of info will I find further down?"
Simple stuff like capitalizing sentences a checker like the one that comes with Word should pick up for you.
Hope this helps - not meaning to be critical but you did ask...
Yep, the spelling and grammar is important.
You can write in a word program and run it through the spell/grammar check to make sure that everything is as it should be.
Shouldn't that be, "The spelling and grammar are important?"
Pedantry with a smile ... says intelligent, but also humble ... I like it ...
You guys had better tell Kipling:
"The tumult and the shouting dies;
The Captains and the Kings depart:"
"dies" is quite intentionally singular because his "the tumult and the shouting" are to be taken together as a compound singular noun.
Captains and Kings, of course, depart separately, not together as one body. They, therefore, require the plural "depart"
Marye was merely being poetic
Julie-Ann Amos hit it on the head. I looked up the key words for your hub on the one day detox.
If you use more keywords in your hub and more tags that are actual keywords that are searched for you will get more traffic. Check out Mark Humble Knowles! hubs thats who taught me to create a good hub. He says he doesn't promote his hubs. I believe him. He pays me to talk nice about him. ;-) Just kidding ;-)
Thank you, all of you, great answers, and fantastic help.
Tags, keywords, and of course my spelling, is definetely something i will begin to study.
I knew i would get help, as soon as i asked for it, to every single one of you, thanks again, you guys are the best.
I`m not saying keywords aren`t important, they should in some way have a decent density in each and every hub. But I would go for lots and lots of promotion as trends are always changing ya know.
yeah..what paraglider said..I was being poetical.
Hey brother man, I can shed some light on what you need here. I've only learned some of these Internet Marketing techniques tips and tricks for a short while now but I'm learning more all the time. I don't check in on HubPages as much anymore as I should. It's kind of where I started off as a noobie and began writing. I jumped into learning how to use my computer and found the world of the Internet and was completely addicted from the start.
Here is my buck fifty wisdom I can provide from what I've learned all very recently and quickly as I have jumped into IM full time and still learning everyday.
You want traffic. You need to SEO (search engine optimize) your articles for the keywords your article or what you are wishing your page to be focused on. It's pretty much not any different then marketing. You want traffic right?
Well without knowing it maybe, you're marketing something. You want to be read and you wish to have those views in the thousands. To do that, you need to focus on your KW's and think almost identically to an Internet Marketer that is doing the same thing with their own articles in a chosen "niche"
Getting traffic can be easy if you use some cool tricks I've just started to discover in the Internet world myself. RSS feeds, social book marks, and pinging your URL's to google yahoo msn etc.
Ping your sites and update, edit, and add relevant content and you can get your search engine results ranked higher and traffic will start to flow. Everytime you edit, ping your page to google and also... using backlinks are super powerful.
Write more articles at other article sites and have relevant content that is linking back to your pages here, and vice versa.
Good luck man
PLM,thank you man, that was gold, great advices, i will definetely start working on it.
