Im still fairly new here just about 4 months. I dont have a huge amount of time to hub as I am a part time journalist and work part time (in a tourist board!) My traffic still seems very low 25-50 a day usually, just wondering what people thought of my hubs and if there was a way I could improve them to gain more traffic. I tweet, FB, Pin, and ping most of them when they are new and occassionally again if I think people may find them usefully at the time.
Any helpful tips on what else I can try or how I can improve them would be great?
Thank you all in advance!
Just some very general observations:
Some of your titles are far too long: NEVER go over 64 characters and make them well under that if possible. Google doesn't show anything over that length.
Learn the keyword tool and use it. Put some real though and effort into coming up with a title.
Learn to use amazon effectively - putting a bunch of semi-pertinent ads at the bottom won't do much for you. It won't get you traffic, but can get you income from the traffic you DO have.
Chooses your topics carefully. Organic search engine traffic is what really matters, but how many searchers are going to be looking for a hub about you and your story? Friends, relatives, other hubbers may be, but they aren't going to produce the thousands of readers you want to see.
Read, study and digest the learning center information. There is a wealth of knowledge there that we can all use. You write well, but writing online is a completely different ball game than articles for a magazine or on your own blog. The learning center can help a lot here.
Just a quick idea. Do you google+ and use stumble upon? Once I started using google+ I saw my views increase and my hubs show up on the first 2 pages of search a lot more often. As for the rest Wilderness covered it all!
It takes time to gain traffic and is not a overnight sensation. For now, just write quality content and promote to the 'target' market. Figure out what type of person would be interested in your topic(s) and find them online, interact and share and then hopefully, they will do the same just got to have patience and keep working to build up your portfolio.

Ok, here goes. I rarely get involved in the forums, I guess I am a little on the shy side. I have been here almost 2 years now and have published over 80 hubs. I have only had 2 ever unfeatured and have deleted those and a couple more that I thought just were not up to par. My...

I'm fairy new to Hub Pages, but one of the things I really enjoy is reading through the Hub Hopper - you never know what topic is going to pop out at you OR how good or bad the next article will be, ha! But some of the really good ones could be even better with some good writer-to-writer feedback....

My Amazon sales are dead in the water. My Amazon Caps are discrete - I have added only when directly related to a product.I am not getting much traffic at the mo, so I guess this is an issue. I posted around 60 Hubs in Dec 2014, so it should be these have not been picked up by Google as organic...
