Few points I have observed regarding my hubs that is when I publish a hub:
First one or two days I receive traffic and then it becomes stagnant.
Secondly, from second day on-wards it starts showing the traffic is falling.
Thirdly, In comparison to the traffic such as suppose I've got 50 visitors then the comment is only one, why so?
If you can throw some light on this then it will be of help. Thanks in advance!
New Hubs can get a little boost because they're new. After that, the newness wears off, and they're on their own. As far as comments go, a whole lot of people who view, or read, don't comment. Also, some subjects are more likely to get comments than others. Seeing traffic pick up for any one Hub can take awhile (if it's going to pick up).
Hello Shampa. I see most of your questions answered with the exception of having traffic on the first few days, the it slows down. The traffic I get in the first few days is usually from HP members, from this site. Then the newness wears off and it works it way up into the great Google ranking. It takes months for that traffic to increase, but I have been told that it will, over time.
Also, you must factor in your 'promotion' efforts. Have to go out in the big www and post links from here, there and over yonder HP isn't responsible for generating traffic for you. There is a treasure full of Hubs and forums answering the question to getting traffic. Just use the upper right search.
Hub traffic is a bit like print traffic. Once a person reads a hub, how likely is that same person to return to read it again? Future traffic depends on new people running across the hub, or new followers stumbling on it in your index of hubs.
You can sometimes get a new surge of traffic by tweaking the title and keywords a bit. You can also 'share' an older hub with followers if it's been around for a while and you have new followers who wouldn't have seen it when it was first published.
Evergreen hubs have more of a chance to discovered periodically. Seasonal hubs are less likely to get traffic outside of the season in which they are relevant.
Your initial spike traffic comes from HubPages itself and not search engines. Usually your followers (and the followers of particular topics) will be the ones to read it. After that, the traffic dies down as the hub is indexed and ranked by the search engines. At this point traffic may be zero or very low. Over time, your traffic should slowly grow as you add backlinks and start sharing your hub on social networks. In addition to this, a hubs traffic will also change over time due to the changing architecture of the internet (e.g. the Google Search Algorithm, etc). You never know when a hub may suddenly take off with readers. Some of my hubs sat for months before they suddenly started getting viewers while others still get very few readers.

What is going on? One week ago I received notification from HubPages that several of my hubs would no longer be featured because of declining traffic. I suppose this means that I should jump in and recast, reformat, and...

Should you update a Hub when you see its traffic waning, even before it's gone Idle? Will this keep it from going Idle and increase traffic to it?
