I've noticed that many of my hubs generate a high spike in traffic the first couple of days but after about a week then tend to flatline, making them effectively dead. Any experienced hubbers have tips to make more use of these old hubs or is the idea to keep posting new ones and strike while the iron is hot?

Good point. Guess I better go back to my old hubs and beef up the keywords!
So after the initial burst, I kinda have to play the waiting game. Would you say it's common to see a natural increase in traffic on older hubs after a couple of months due to its newfound presence in search results?
It may take two months, three months or six months for your Hub to naturally increase in traffic. If no one is looking for your subject, it never will. You can speed the process by learning how to promote your work outside HubPages.
I'm not big on self-promotion.
Well spoken. You've been here for 2 months, how have your earnings been?
To make decent income on HubPages, 90% of your traffic needs to come from outside HubPages. Does that tell you where your focus should be? Don't expect to make money by networking within HubPages - that's for fun.
