While searching on Internet how to get millions of traffic for my articles/hubs I found most of answer is SEO techniques.
Again SEO techniques has some different part like Good key words, back link of your article, Well explained with Good quality of English.
So share from your experience which technique help you to get more traffic from search engine.
Picking the right keywords is I believe vital. Knowing what they are is a different matter. A few years back you could do ok with 3 word keywords like best acne cures but I am certain those days are long gone.
To rank on hub pages now you are looking at keywords that are 4-6 keywords long and even there some of those are still really competitive.
My best way of getting traffic is to look at the first page on google and fin keywords that have forums on them or yahoo answers. If they exist then I can out rank them with a hub page.
I hate back links so I don't do them and this is just a lazy man's alternative.
i use google keywords tool and i also check answer sites like yahoo and wikihow. That gives me a rough idea on the best keywords to use
Hi sonykuddi -
There are many ways to increase traffic for your hubs - I am just discovering the tip of the iceberg but to summarise you need to:
- Build quality hubs and develop your profile - and if you can find a niche subject to write about even better (this will make it easier for you to target hubs towards a specific audience).
- Be active on hubpages - answer questions, ask questions, comment on other hubs, follow others (and you may get a follow in return)
- Use social media - promote your articles on Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest (there are countless others). Find communities/interest groups in social media that relate to your hubs and then post links to your page when you engage in discussuions.
Hope this helps.
We've got lots of tips on that front in our Learning Center: http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/contents

Fill up your tags, make the title long. Most keywords take care of themselves in the copy. The system is fickle sometimes.
Do we still have a place to add tags? According to Google articles I have read on their site you should keep your title as short and precise as possible. Long titles over 65 characters get cut off also. The best way to get traffic is to write good content using a title with search terms that people are liking to put in when they search. Read and comment on other people's hubs and in the forums and join other social networking sites and writing groups and read others works and leave lots of insightful comments.
You are right. However, titles like "How to Make Money on the Internet with a Computer" don't hurt.
Yes, there is a place to add tags.
Interior traffic from HubPages is a play date tea party. No one knows you have good content until they get there. They need to follow your rabbit into wonderland.
Where would that be? The button for tags that used to be next to the "group" button is gone, and has been for some time now.
I guess you could create a text capsule and just fill it with random tags, but doubt that either google or HP would appreciate that - the grammar would be rather lacking.
Hi HoneyBB you are correct about the titles and tags. That person "Driveby Quipper"is going through the forums and making bad suggestions so that he can confuse and discourage as many newbies as he can. Pity he does not stay underneath his bridge with the rest of the trolls.
I find I can get a lot of traffic by using yahoo answers. I actually wrote a hub on that topic. I also find facebook is a great source for traffic. The real key is high quality content.
I post my links outside of HubPages. Look into content curation where you post all sorts of links in a topic, including your own.
The first step is always to writing something useful or entertaining, and generally fascinating--this helps the traffic find you. Or as SEO types are inclined to say: "content is king".
I have no techniques to increase traffic. Week after week I keep seeing a 15 - 25% steady decline in views. I long ago gave up on HubPages after they continued to make what I consider to be bad decisions.
Why not check out Driveby's Hubs to see how he does things?
I agree that "content is king" because SEO and trying to get on the front page of google these days is HARD.
So by writing original and well thought out content filled with your keyword will really help. Then share it with all your friends on Twitter, Google+, Facebook, LinkedIn, Pinterest, etc.
Just write about things that are super easy for you to write about clearly, and usually the end product will be good. Write about things that you just know more about than the average searcher, so you can give lots of people answers they are searching for. As long as people on Google don't have too many similar articles, it seems to just work out. Google traffic is what you want, social media has never really worked for me (the traffic in comparison doesn't last long now is as large; probably unless you go viral). I also really don't think that researching the info right before writing an article would ever lead to an end product better than writing about something you already know about.
Also scout out the competition, always know who 1) you're going up against 2) who you're writing for.
The best ever technique I can think of to get traffic to your hubs is to eat a peanut butter sandwiche....your belly demands it!
If you wanna to get more traffic on your hub pages then according to my point of view " content is king' just write unique and useful content for people that's why everyone like your post and came there for reading your post.
Share your page with social media sites like facebook, google +, twitter, pinterest etc.
I use Google keywords tool and do answer on answering sites like yahoo and quora & share my hub to all my social media profiles.Social media is the best way to get huge traffic.

No theory, I want to know practically what course of action can really increase the traffic to my article i.e. what actions really SEO the articles? Fellow hubbers share your experience.

Yes, yes, I know. Research good keywords, write quality content, etc etc.But practically speaking, how do you actually drive traffic? I'm looking for concrete, specific answers instead of the generic advice everyone always gives.* Do you post to certain sites?* Do you post on niche/content-related...

But I am wondering why there seems to be competition in the real google world and no competition showing for it in the external keyword tool world?

If you're a Hubber, do you use SEO for your hubs, or not? If you do, what kind(s) of SEO?I'm exploring why Google treats different article-publishing sites differently. So this is an informal poll to get a sense of what search engine optimization techniques, if any, Hubpages writers tend to use.

Two of my best hubs have been going down in traffic over the past few months. I'm an SEO writer, and one of these two hubs of mine is on an SEO topic. I'd noticed that this hub had completely lost ALL rankings in Google. It had done very well in the past, and I couldn't think of anything that I'd...

Since I joined HP there has been a constant battle against the rise and fall of traffic. We are often encouraged to tune our titles, edit our content and generally try to improve our Hubs. Now with the threat of having Hubs unfeatured, as well as the new quality assessment process taking place...
