Thinking of moving all my Hub Patron of the Arts hubs

    The Hub Patron of the Arts contest was an awesome idea - I wrote close to 30 hubs during that month. Unfortunately for me those hubs are sitting at the bottom of my stats - little to NO traffic. People just don't seem to come here to read poetry, short stories and look at photos (IMHO)

    I am thinking about moving these to perhaps a separate website that is more personal to me - like my own lol. Where maybe these types of articles would be more appropriate.

    I am just concerned they are not getting the love they need here and maybe even damaging my other writing here by pulling my stats down??

    I had the same thoughts myself, Dorsi.  That's why I DID pull mine off... not too long after the contest.  Plus, I didn't want anyone to steal them.  I've chosen to remove them from the world wide web completely, for use in a possible book later.

      Good idea. I had the same thoughts. There are some that I am concerned about that might be copied.

    Thanks for opening this thread Dorsi..

    There is Clearly Something WRONG in relation to exposure of these hubs! 
    8 out of 10 of my submitted poems are sitting at the bottom in the low 60s with little or no traffic also!  85% of my work ranges between 75 - 89 HS-wise.

    I want to Know WHY there is a Sandbox effect for Competition Submissions?

    80% of my work is poetry and I rank highly with non competition works in SERPs - So What Is It That Is Happening to this work?

    Some of the Best work I have submitted to this site was in that Comp and it gets No Traffic! Clearly HP has a problem that just makes all the hard work a waste of time. 

    It IS A SANDBOX - I want to know why... as Clearly so do others!
    I just feel my work is being manipulated in some respect as this has effected every article that I have submitted to HP Comps.. but not those individually published... which all tend to sit on pages 1 - 4 on Google!

    It's just too obvious that the problem lies with HP and no one is saying a Dicky Bird about it! sad  Oh Other than Jason's remark the other day that "Poetry doesn't Drive Traffic Anyway!" - Amazing Attitude! -  But.. Maybe that's the REAL Problem? sad

    It's Not Good Enough!

      Good good questions. I just looked at my patron of the arts hubs - and 19 of them have had 0 traffic today. This is a recurring thing. I am very disappointed at their performance - yet these are some of the best hubs (creative wise) that I have ever wrote.
