    Will I get the same traffic if i write articles off season e.g Olympics or they have to be written in specific period?

    If they're seasonal evergreen (keep their relevance for every olympics), they'll increase in views whenever the olympics are on or people are suddenly interested in the olympics.

    What people are googling decides your traffic.  But it takes time for an article to rank well - some hubbers start writing their Christmas hubs in June.

      Thank you.But according to you writing about Christmas in June is a good idea.

        It takes 6-9 months for online content to start seeing good traffic. Writing ahead means you give your content time to age.

    Well before the season arrives, make sure your seasonal articles don't get "idled" and are not snoozing.

      Is there a way  to stop articles from snoozing?

        Idling low-performing hubs is a new feature that HP just implemented, so it's hard to give much advice just yet, but it seems that basically writers need to check their seasonal hubs from time to time throughout the year, and tinker with them so that the algorithm reads them as fresh and not lacking anything. I had a few recipe hubs that don't get many views and the algorithm put them on idle (look for a little "zzz" in the far right column on your hub stats page). I went in and edited these hubs slightly, and now they have little green dots where the "zzz" was, which means they're not no-indexed anymore.

        If you'd like better info, there's a post in the learning center about this, and a huge thread on the hubpages annoncement forum.

            If I were you I would go ahead and write it and publish it now, but check it continually over the next few months to make sure it does not get the little "zzz" symbol. If it does, make a few small changes and resubmit it as quickly as possible, so it will be reindexed as soon as possible.
