I asked this in the questions section, but it was removed because the moderators felt it belonged here, so I'm posting it here now.
I am curious about how much traffic you think I receive daily based on having 26 featured articles, 43 followers, being here for 2 months, and any other factors you feel are appropriate.
Looking at the titles of your hubs I would guess around 20 hits per day...
Because they should reflect on the whole what people are searching for; if your title is "The philosophy of Isaac Asimov" how many people do you think are likely to search for that every day?
Then consider "How to stop trolls on Facebook" or "How to get rid of spots"..
To get traffic something has to be searched for; while the title is not the whole story it makes up a significant chunk of how google knows what traffic to send you.
Most of your 26 Hubs haven't had 100 views. You got your 1,000 view accolade a month ago. Your total views are probably between 1,000 – 2,000 for the two months you've been publishing here. Some keyword research might help you improve your traffic.
I actually wasn't thinking about people reading my hubs. I figured they could get the info they needed by looking at my profile. Anyway, I get about 20 views a day now with 2,437 total, but I used to get about 50 a day. I wanted to see if people would leave a guess, than the reasons, and they did. The title suggestion, among others, should help.
I have changed around a few of my titles, but they might be too long now. I'll see if they work out over the next week or so.
When you open one of your hubs click the "stats" button next to edit. There is a tab labeled "search" and this tells you what people entered into the search engines to find your hub. This will give you some idea of what google and the others think your hub is about and deserves traffic for.
On your Account page, click on Traffic Sources and see where most of your traffic comes from. You shouldn't be relying on HP traffic. To be successful you need search engines to be sending readers. Generating clicks from hubbers via forums etc is not a strategy for long term success.
In many ways it is not the quantity of hits you should be worrying about, but the quality.
Ben, you are doing much better than me. I have 28 featured hubs but my traffic range is from 8 to 15 views per day. Once in a while I will get over 20 views. Rare.
I joined 3 years ago and am still here because I like the community in HP.
I have been at HP for three months now and got about 33 featured hubs and about 139000 views but I love the community and hope the traffic to rise good luck Ben
I do that kind of traffic too, I just don't like to brag about it.
I joined 2 months ago, wrote 4 hubs, but am not getting any traffic from search engines. Can you tell me how long till I start to see any traffic?
Good going but a long way from impossible. It is only a bit more than a thousand views a day, which a couple of good pages can bring in on a shiny new sub-domain.
Great! let me know.
Can you guys please check if my hubs are okay?
I am new here, need some suggestions.
Your pages seem Ok.
You need to develop good instincts for subjects that will prove popular and have not already been written about widely.
Then you need some luck, lol.
What about mine Will?
Only, I don't want criticism, just compliments please.
If you don't like them... just pretend. Im easily fooled.
Pages that will prove popular and have not been written about widely...
...sounds kind of tricky.
I found the Google keyword tool, it's great.
Now I get what you said.
Someone copied my hubs to his blog - http://adorable17.blogspot.in/2013/08/5 … mment-form
What do I do? it's on blogger.

Hi, I currently have 4 hubs posted and I am literally not getting ANY traffic. I got maybe 10 views on the days I published a hub and then nothing. For today I have 0 views. This is very depressing for me to be honest in trying to continue on with this site. Is it normal to get 0 traffic until you...

I've now written 52 Hubs but have less than 300 views from Google. I've read and taken the advice about titles, key words, niches, and high interest topics but am going nowhere fast. Is this the way it is or am I doing something horribly wrong? It seems like I'm missing a huge piece of the puzzle...

I am kind of tired of this whole traffic thing. Everyone else claims great success, and I can't get a view. I have only 2 views today, and 23 views for the whole week.I have tried everything to get traffic, and nothing is working for me. I even joined several social sites, and my traffic has only...

I have three Hubs about the 2015 Sydney Siege. They were all featured. They do not attract a great deal of views as these are about a local event. However, only one of them has been demoted a few weeks ago.It now sports the " = Not Featured - Traffic" icon. But. ....

I don't know if you have used this app before, but I believe it's worth a shot.Just 2 days ago I witnessed a sudden increase in views in one of my Hubs. I mean, hundreds of views, almost a thousand at this point. When I took a look at the traffic source, I saw it was Stumbleupon that made...

For a long time it has puzzled me how one of my hubs keeps doing great, when it shouldn't. You see, I started a hub on one topic and then changed my mind in the middle of it.Now, back then I had no idea you couldn't change the URL later, so I was horrified when I was stuck with a URL that couldn't...
