    I know everyone is having a traffic problem, but I'm only getting 70 views a day, and making about six cents a day. Is there anything wrong with my hubs? Could a seasoned veteran just give me a few tips? I've read a million hubs on improving traffic, but nothing works. I'm currently editing my hubs everyday to make them higher scored, but sill, nothing is happening. So far today, I only have 34 views total. I don't get it, what am I doing wrong?

      I make about 6 cents a day, but I don't think I have as many views as you do.

      It looks like you have a bunch of Hubs idled. I think I counted 18 active out of the 44 your profile says you have published. Those Hubs won't be getting traffic from Google, most likely, because they've been idled. So you're down to eighteen Hubs that can bring in traffic. In my opinion, it could be beneficial to you to tweak those Hubs that aren't active and see if you can bring in some traffic with them.

        I agree with Georgie.  Another thing to do is to go into your profile page and change the settings so that your unfeatured hubs show up on your profile page.  Although they will still be unfeatured, they will at least show up to people who go to your profile page.  Right now, only your featured hubs are visible. 

        Proofread and tweak like there is no tomorrow and get those unfeatured hubs working for you again.

    Glad to know I'm not the only one who is earning just a few cents a day.

      yes, it's a comfort to know that i'm not the only one earning .05, 06 cents a day...why, what's happening? will anybody who knows what's really happening tell us the real score so we're not left wondering and groping in the dark? sometimes, i feel that the effort i give in writing interesting hubs, with all the research i make, is exercise in futility with these negative developments in traffic and earnings.

        The truth is that we can write interesting, well written and well researched Hubs till the cows come home but, unless these masterpieces are on subjects that Google users are actively looking for of if we haven't managed to build a good network of backlinks, we won't get the traffic. It is a delicate balance and I'm not ashamed to admit that I haven't figured it out yet.

      Nah, Georgie hit the nail on the head.

      You can't keep shilling for visitors. Much like a store, if the only customers that come through the door are ones that you hunted down bodily, you'll be doing so much work trying to drag warm bodies across the threshold that you won't have time to stock the shelves or sell anything.

      You have to figure out whether to put tripe or chocolate truffle cats and mice in the store window display (summary, title and hub photo). Other than that, it's best to focus on what's inside.

      Unfortunately, if someone's dug up the street outside your store, and there's a bunch of beeping machinery and people in hard hats blocking access and making it hard for customers to get in, you'll have problems getting customers. A really, REALLY good chocolate shop may overcome the obstruction, but if it's a corner grocery store whose stuff can mostly be found elsewhere, you're sunk.

        I don't shove it people's faces. I post it on my fan page and a writing group. Then views just come.
