Traffic To My Hubs Has Increased In A Matter Of Weeks

Updated on January 10, 2013

Traffic To My Hubs

As you all are well aware Hubpages' traffic has dropped for many people, thanks to a few Google Updates here and there, most notably the one that took place at the end of September of 2012. I have decided to write this article to let people know that for the past couple of weeks now I am getting around the same amount of traffic to my hubs that I was getting before that Google Update occurred. I didn't think the traffic would recover because I did lose quite a bit of it, but now it seems to be coming in at a steady number once again.

Did I do anything different? I haven't done much at all, but I did publish a few more hubs than I normally would on a monthly basis. In the month of December I published a few hubs and I also published a few this month, and about 2 out of the 19 hubs that I have published in a span of 4 weeks are doing well in Google's search, so I think that these two hubs have helped me recover from the Google Update that impacted many on Hubpages.

Writing 19 Hubs may seem like a lot of hubs but for 4 weeks I gave myself a goal to write 4-5 hubs per week, so it really was not a struggle to write hubs and to do the research required to write them. If you have still not recovered from traffic loss, then just keep trying to write quality hubs, do a little bit of basic promotion when you write the hub and then repeat. Remember it takes a little bit of work to get traffic to your hubs, and sometimes it just takes a little bit of luck to get a lot of traffic to your hubs.

Continue to write hubs, do research, promote and then write some more. Good luck Hubbers.

      Thanks for reading. I am not positive what the reason for the spike is but it seems that my Hubs' traffic recovers pretty much fully after every Google update, so far.

      I too also feel more optimistic this year. Thanks again for reading my Hub.

      Encouraging news. I am still waiting to see what happens but the last couple of days have been encouraging. I am still removing idled hubs and those not viewed in 30 days but being selective.

      I suspect nothing you did actually helped and I wonder how much of the extra traffic is just the normal new hub spike.

      But I feel more optimistic than in 2012 at the moment.
