    My hubs are averaging low views yet the ratings they get are ok - how can I improve - any suggestions welcome.  Thank you.

      Hello Liz:

      There are a few things you can do to improve the views. But I believe you will see those views increase after a couple of months. You are still fairly new to the hubpages platform, so be patient and you will see an upward movement in those red arrows grow. However in the meantime, try re-editing each article that you have already written. Going over it like a fine tooth comb searching for any typos and other grammatical erros. Also seeing if you can change your wording around in a paragraph, or two, to make it even more reader friendly, or even adding some additional info. to your writing. These are only a few suggestions and there are probably more that others can give you. If you are writing useful and informative content then in the long run you will reap the rewards from it. Hope this helps you out a bit. Happy writing here as a newbie to hubages.

      Liz:

      I'm relatively new to this as well, but I have noticed something.  When I publish hubs consistently, my views stay high, but if I go a few days without being active, my views dip down lower.  It seems to be very important to keep putting out content, but make sure it is still quality and not just all about quantity.

        That makes sense.  The quality is very important I agree.  Thanks for replying.

    Your very welcomed Liza:

    As for the patience-I don't have much of that either. I guess is something that is a characteristic trait of most humans.

    I'm new too and I'm learning that a good title is very important, as well as a strong and compelling summary, at least 10 tags and good keywords that people are searching for. Google has a great keyword research tool.

    Hope this helps and good luck.

      And use the title tuner. If you can incorporate all the key words suggested that show 50% search or better, it helps. Even if the title seems ridiculously long, try to come up with something.

      Ex.: Exploration into the Human Equation: How Nanobots are Helping Scientists in the Quest for Longevity

      Or

      Handbags: Man's Art of Necessity: The Evolution of the Bag and How To Make Your Own Travel Sack

      Anything that contains a recipe - use the word 'Recipe' in the title as well as the words 'How To' - one of the most searched phrases on the web. ("How to Make Gluten Free Bread Plus Recipe for ____________")

        Title tuner - where and how do I find that handy dandy little tool....?  Great suggestion for key word inclusion in titles - so longer with the right words will help.

      Thanks - I have just started learning about the key words.  Oh boy, so much to learn.  Great opportunity though.
