    What changes can I make to increase the falling traffic to my article? My articles are already featured. It has all kind of capsules except video. What kind of changes can I further make to increase the falling traffic?

      Use a video capsule or two. Be sure that you have keywords in the title as well as the url. Back links, back links, back links, Facebook, Twitter, Stumble, and Pin. Create blogs around similar to your article and link them back to the article. Link other Hubpage articles that are similar to your in the articles. Good luck

      I wonder if you really want to increase falling traffic or just increase traffic.

    Start by making use of the Title Tuner. Then do some SEO research and add keywords to your text to improve hits from search engines.

    My best hub took a big hit in the end of 2012. Heard somewhere about having your google+ account link to Hubpages - I forgot how I did it, but had to use a real picture of me, which I distorted. Now, my best hub is higher than it's ever been.

    I don't know if the google+ linkage to hubpages worked or not but here is my screen shot of People User, Abusers & Sociopaths.

    Another thing I do is because sociopaths are in the news like ALL THE TIME - I shamelessly self promote myself where ever news articles have comments. Perhaps that is what did it.

      oopsie, my best hub drop off, I guess the bump was from that new book "Confessions of Sociopath" - which I read yesterday.

      does the rel=author link work on hubpages? I have done it for my blog, but have not tried linking my  hubpages to it ..I think for sure having your google+ picture in search results equals more clicks

    You have 2 hubs, one of which is on Pinterest. there's a lot of competition there. Most people already know about Pinterest. Focus on writing evergreen hubs, subject that people will always want to read about. Use lots of images (3 or more), videos etc.

    You live in a part of the world with lots of interesting facts (that was an assumption), custom, culture etc. Write about those, walk about with your camera, so you'll have plenty of images on hand. Wish you the best.

    Here's an idea. Stop using phrases like, "But it is been quite a time there, isn’t it?"
    Makes you sound like Ali G. Booyakasha!

      And yet it is featured.  Obviously the "isn't it" was wat did it.

    You'll receive a hit of traffic when you first publish a hub.

    If you use GOOD SEO AND a niche topic, you'll start receiving Google traffic straight away and continues to rise.
    If you use mediocre SEO in a pretty full topic, you'll get traffic over the next 6-9 months.
    If you have terrible SEO and write in a SATURATED niche, you'll likely never get serious traffic.

    Most of us took months to see decent traffic and earnings. This is not a place to "get rich quick".

      One hint. Have a habit of updating (Actually extending) your old hubs (Old one, loosing the traffic.). 

      Search engine tries to re-evaluate the ranking based on your extended content. I hope the ranking will improve

    I would start with the best preforming hubs that have dropped and work towards the worst when you have time (the perceived wisdom here seems to be that it is better to write new hubs than edit the old and underperformimg).

    I have re-written around 8 hubs thus far and of those five have increased traffic and three haven't. Of those that didn't improve, they were all originally un-featured and didn't get much traffic when they were.

    Also, look at the topic currently on the site about copied hubs and make sure they haven't been copied and put up elsewhere. Good luck getting the traffic back smile

    The key to increase rate that traffic is dropping off your articles  is to swear at people, call them idiots, and remove all the key words from your text. If you want your traffic to drop off completely you could just delete all of your articles! I hope this helps...
