How come my Rising Star Award nominated hub continues to drop in visits? I thought being nominated meant more people would read it. How come less people are reading it?
The award will typically result in a large number of HubPages readers, but very few from search engines. As the hub is removed from the display of other hubs receiving the same award the readers from HP will drop off.
It will take time to collect google search engine visits. Weeks, months, perhaps years before the hub's full potential is reached. If a hub is going to perform well, it will usually see decent traffic in six months or so, but even that is extremely variable. Patience, HoneyBB - you have built it and they will come. In the meantime, keep building ever more hubs.
Thanks so much for taking your time to reply, The thing is I haven't won the award; I have only been nominated and voting ends tomorrow. If I'm not getting any traffic that means I'm not getting any votes either and I'm not quite sure how to get people to vote for me as I don't have many followers and even those I cannot sent one message to all.
Hi..I'm not sure why the views would be decreasing but I would love to go read your hub and vote I checked the most recent newsletter and didn't see it in there. Which of your hubs was nominated? I tried to look through them and guess I missed it. Let me know!
Thank you, Jamie,
My hub is called Four Changes That Would Reduce The Number of People Living In Poverty Exponentially. It is under the Politics and Social Issues category. It should pop up on the left hand side of the page with a box containing all six nominees. Thank you for your time and for your vote.
I just went back to comment again.. I didn't know that was the hub you were nominated for when I commented. Rising Star, yes, you are I really appreciate you taking the time to write it.. everything you wrote is right on!
The title probably gets cut off in Google. 60 characters is the optimal length of a title.

How can I be considered for a Rising Star accolade?I know it's a random selection, but is there anything I can do to get noticed on Hub Pages? I'm already quite active in the forums and the answers panel, and hop hubs sometimes too. Also, how long are you a member of HP until you don't...

It seems that by some miracle I've won Rising Star not once, but twice! I am totally shocked, pleasantly surprised, and absolutely motivated to keep on writing. I won a few weeks ago on a hub about feeding dogs raw eggs, then again this week for a cookie recipe using coconut oil. At this point in...

Does the rising star award help your traffic overall?I have recently achieved the rising star accolade, and I'm wondering whether it makes a long term difference to your stats? For example, after the newsletter has went out and everything has settled, do you still get a steady stream of traffic to...

hello, my only article has recently been nominated in the Rising Star program. I was very excited to see the news in my e-mail inbox. The only problem is, I dont have any social networks to share other than facebook...but there's not many people to support me. The only community-base I can rely to...
