Quality Hubs and Traffic

    I'm open to suggestions on how to improve my hubs and my traffic. My hubs generate traffic, just not large volumes. I read where a fellow hubber had received over 800 views in a day. The most views I've received is 200+ in a day, and this was only on one hub. It's not happened since then. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

      I have not received 200 views till far from my single hub in one day lol ... you are lucky that you hit 200 ... and I think writing more quality hubs and getting 200 visits per day from each Hub makes more traffic from all of the hub in total.

      All the game is with content let see some expert Hubbers will give your more information about this.

        @ joseph merlin...Getting 200 visits on the one hub did increase  traffic on a few of my hubs but only for a short while. Thanks for the post. smile

      Without actually going through a bunch of your hubs, here are still a couple of suggestions.

      Try to write evergreen hubs - those that stay relevant indefinitely.  A hub about West Virginia Bridge Day doesn't sound like it would be and neither does the title about Aliayah.

      Learn to use the keyword tool and be very careful with hub titles.  Who would ever put "helpless" into google and why?  Who would search for "tears from heaven", "sound mind" or "broken body"?  A neat sounding title might do well inside a paper magazine but it means much less, and can be detrimental, to a robotic search engine.

      If your on-page SEO (including titles) does not match what searchers are looking for they can't find you.  You may have the best article in the world, giving the best information, but if a searcher doesn't see it in a search result they can't and won't read it.

      Consider writing more quality hubpages and increasing your internal links here at Hubpages which will in turn increase your external links outside of HP and share your links occasionally on other sites like Facebook and Twitter. Mind you writing good quality hubpages will bring others to link to your articles anyway.

        Thank you Wayne. I usually try to link to other internal hubs when revelant. As you pointed out, writing good quality hubs will bring traffic......maybe I need to improve my writing skills. I'm sure this will come with time. I appreciate your input. I have used Facebook occasionally to promote my hubs, but not often. It has increased the traffic to my hubs. Thanks again for the feedback.

          Writing skills largely have nothing to do with it. it's a commitment to writing and knowing what you are talking about that has a larger effect. That and a little sly promotion here and there. In my case I do drawing tutorials, book reviews and art equipment reviews, the tutorials help back up all the rest ,lbecause they show that I have some reasonable talent at drawing that I can promote books and equipment.....Always think on what you know and try to write more around experiences and plus the more you write the better for you with more backlinks internally here at Hubpages......

            Wayne Tully, you have a new follower, my daughter really wants to improve her drawing. However, I think she's naturally talented, let's face it I would I'm her mother. But, she's dropped art because when she approached her art teacher about this, he said they had to go with the curriculum, no time for drawing tutorials.

              Thanks. I firmly believe that drawing should be about following your interests as an artist. My interests in this respect is to draw stuff from my imagination. I failed at College myself for not having any interest in the art subjects on offer like Fashion and Textiles which was totally against what I wanted to learn.

              Art is what you make it after all.....

                She has developed an interest in graphics though, she's into it (she also thinks that teacher is cool, she's inspired smile). She's also started using watercolors and is experimenting. Good stuff, you're able to offer what school couldn't. I doubt very much you have failed in any way.

    I think good earnings tend to have a volume component.  So look at your hubs that do well and make more in that vein.

      @ psycheskinner.....I will try this. I just truly haven't find my niche yet. I started writing as outlet.....an escape....something to occupy my mind. I now need to find what works best to improve. Thank you for the feedback. smile

    Traffic and Earnings mainly depend on the topics you choose to write on. Evergreen and How to hubs could bring in more visitors to your page. As the age of the page increases normally the credibility also increases.
    1)Try to concentrate on a niche and write several hubs on it.
    2)Interlink these Hubs. Also write articles on other sites with link pointing to your HubPages hubs.
    3)Comment on the related hubs of other people appearing on your hubs.
    4)Promote your hubs on sites like Twitter and Facebook
