    I know it's too early too ask, but I am curious. I have published 6 hubs but haven't  got a single view from search engine traffic yet. So, How much time till  you see some traffic?

    Are your Hub Featured?  If not, Google won't be seeing them yet.

    If you've used white hat SEO on your articles, you will start seeing search engine traffic within a few days to a few weeks.

    White hat SEO also known as organic search engine optimization would take quite a while to explain however the hubs I've written can tell you all about it and how to use it, and I'm sure you will find them quite useful.

    The time to get views from search engine traffic will depend on many things but the idea is to write interesting hubs and you will soon see yourself having search engine traffic... I saw your hubs and there was one on Google Adwords. Honestly, I haven't gone through it but if you understand the basics then all you have to do is to write great hubs and have a great topic to go with it....

    All the Best! And welcome to hubpages!

    First of all let me clarify that organic traffic is basically the free traffic coming from search engines (e.g., the traffic you get when pages of your website appear in the search results). It’s called organic because such traffic flows naturally and freely from search engines.
    Google will know your content might be of interest to some people, but it won’t take the risk of listing it in search results because it’s not sure about the credibility of your information.

    1. How many people are searching for those topics?
    2. How many other people have older, better or higher ranked articles or blog posts on the same topics, and already on Google?

    Those two factors are the biggest influence on your traffic.

    It looks like you have some great articles and a good grip on SEO. The only thing holding you back might be that they are very high competition keyword phrases.  If you haven't already, try to filter out the high count - low competition KPs.

    Also, it's not enough to kick back and wait for the gods to show you love. Spread your stuff: digg, delicious, stumbleupon, redit, fb, twitter, g+, slashdot, etc... this will get you enough traffic in the meantime and also grab the SEs attention.

    This might be a reason that there is not much search volume for the hub you published.

    but i would suggest you that keep patience because it is only the key to get success.

    I've written a hub on the various different ways to get traffic to your articles, including white hat SEO techniques, you can find it linked from my profile: 'Marketing Your Small Business Website Online - In Depth Guide' - It covers several different ways to drive traffic.

    It depends, if you spend time on keyword research and concentrate on one page SEO, you can get Google traffic instantly. Many of my hubs starts getting Google traffic just after getting featured.
