I published a hub on the"Top 10 Homemade Facial Masks" and within 2 days it received
about 6000 visitors, most of them came from StumbleUpon. Yesterday, I published a hub about"Try This New Acne Cure - Experimented for Years", and after 24 hours it received only 49 visitors, although it contains new jargon free information, new treatment, besides it contains my distilled experience as a pharmacist concerning acne, yet it deals with the science behind acne and its cure.
Does this gives a clue about the type of writing that is prospective to be popular? and where can I promote it, it contains one of a kind information.
I wouldn't worry about the first 24 hours of traffic, especially if its from SU. Typically SU traffic isn't going o be profitable especially at mass amounts. That's just what I've found and have heard.
Just write what you want and how you want as long as it's unique, and traffic will come. Acne stuff is a large niche, I'd guess, but I could be wrong. You may have a lot of competition, so I'd make sure to find something specific to work with in terms of getting rid of acne.
You mean as a marketer or as an acne patient?
I mean that I used the same technique for both hubs, I used SU to draw the attention of search engines, and this is what happened with the first hub but not the second one. I am saying that the response of the same stumblers is not the same.
My point is that some content is not as attractive as another type of content, although it may bear the solution to some big problems we face.
I fully understand what you're saying, but in terms of SU, the traffic is iffy as it is. Sometimes it works great and sometimes it sucks even if you're stumbling the same general topic. Sometimes it's not the content but when. I wouldn't rely on SU at all, and remember that you shouldn't stumble your own work; if you do mix it up with other pages and other peoples things, as they will block your account otherwise.
You also can't say much for either hub since they are both still pretty recently, in terms of the traffic. I wouldn't worry about it since the last hub was only published 28 hours ago.
You have two different topics- face masks and acne- and although they are similar they are still different, meaning the traffic is not going to be identical. Even if you had two hubs on face masks, the traffic would be different.
I would think far more people are interested in face masks in general than people who look for the subject acne? Even people without acne problems are often interested in face masks. Just a thought (that may or may not have anything to do with any difference in traffic).

But yeah, don't rely on Stumbleupon traffic, it can be a real let down if an article doesn't get popular!
Beauty is a big market too, we are all vain in one degree or another, lol

I write how-to and recipe hubs. I know the recipe hubs will make money eventually but I have read that technical hubs get more views. What is your thoughts or experience on this topic?

Since my steady stream of freelance work dried up a while back, I have looked into opportunities available in the world of Internet writing. What I found took me way outside of my comfort zone.In the past, I was given a monthly quota of articles to write. I was comfortable with this- just write the...
