Hi! I learn so much from you. I do have a question, and it is quite ironic, but I don't know how to ask questions like you suggest we do. I have answered many of them. But since the format keeps changing on hubpages; I have gotten a tad lost. It is also ironic that I tend to get lost quite often in real life too. I need a better map. Perhaps you can guide me a little? :)

Hope you are well. Peace.

Thank you for this list. I am new to HubPages and need all the help I can get. I appreciate you helping us "rookies." I would also love to hear what you think of the few articles I have posted. If you have the time, I love constructive criticism.

Thank you Aubrey and Paul for reading the Hub and expressing your views on it. You do not need to do everything daily which I have suggested, but whenever you log in Hubpages, do not forget to do few of them But it is always better to give an hour daily for Hubpages.

jainismus,

Your ten things to do on hubpages are absolutely true. The problem for me and probably a lot of other people is finding the time each day to do everything that is necessary. Voted up as useful and sharing.

Great tips, J. I need to make sure I remember to be a bit more active as far as sharing, answering and asking questions, and partaking in forums. I simply can't find the time... I work two jobs and write novels/comic books/planning a family reunion. Though this list is definitely a good Golden Rule to follow. Good job.

Here's another thing to do frequently on HP - bookmark others' Hubs! I am a bit wary of doing so here, so I mainly use social networking sites to promote them.

Thanks Chtrangada

Nalini, there are many reasons of non-performance of a Hub. SEO and Keywords are some of the reasons. Other reasons are:

1. The Hub is too short

2. It is not back linked from other hubs on related topics

3. The title of the hub lacks keywords

4. The topic is not popular

5. You are not promoting the hub.

So one should work on these reasons.

Jainismus,

Thank you for the hub! This is good information to have. I recently joined HP and found your information helpful. I voted up and useful!

I do have a couple of questions though: after reviewing hub performance, how do you find out the reasons why hubs are doing well/not well in order to improve them? Does it normally come down to keyword and SEO?

I honestly believe I do all the things you mentioned, but I have a question: I read somewhere (don't ask where) that with our new profile, all of our posts in the Forums will be listed. Is that true? If so, I would hesitate to post in the Forum for all the world to see.

Great Hub. I voted it UP, etc.

Excellent suggestions, jainismus, thank you for reminding us. I think many Hub writers are not aware of how much their comments on the hubs of others aid their own traffic. ("Comments and Traffic.") It's a two-way street.
