There are three ways to angle your hubs -
the evergreen way
the catch the wave now way
the seasonal way
Back in the summer I decided to write sports hubs for a european soccer tournament knowing that the interest would peak for about a month then drop off the hubber's cliff edge. The traffic was phenomenal for a few of my hubs for about a fortnight and then, as expected, stopped!
I have over the months since then changed these hubs into more generic type articles and they get slow traffic now.
My surprise package has been Bird Poems and other poetic hubs - the evergreen hubs - and they're starting to tick over nicely, nothing sensational but ok.
Recipes for healthy eating also do much better than other ordinary recipe hubs.
Out of all the hubs the most memorable was a soccer hub - 2500 in a few days (that is very good for an amateur like me!!) plus 6000 image hits!!!!! Typical sports fans!!
If only they counted.
Best of luck with all your hubbing.
