First and for most, thank you for visiting this thread. I am slightly a newbie (lol) and I don't have much knowledge on SEO stuff. So I would be very thankful with the rest of other hubbers here on how to increase our SEO ranks and traffics. We would love to here advices to experts. here are some of my following questions:
1. How do we use keywords, do we need to repeat it many times for algorithm purpose. I know some of you is using Adwords for keywords but I wonder how it is inserted on blogs or hubs? In the first part,middle or last part?
2. I have read that few hubbers are receiving 1k -4k views per day which is absolutely, certainly and definitely awesome (okay, verbal diarrhea). Can you guide us in a simplified manner how and what type of topics drives traffic like that?
3. Are titles needs to be simple? long?
4. Do you share your hubs on social sites or pure organic? Do you backlinks? where and how?
I know I have plenty of questions here my friend and sorry, but I am really thirsty for knowledge, don't be greed, hehe please share. For I have already 100 post and i only receive 250-350 views per day which is probably so low than one of our hubbers with 30+ hubs but receiving 1-3K views per day.
What is the secret sauce?
You say to not be greedy to people who have been here and put in the hours to learn but you seem to want people to just give you answers without you having to exchange anything for that knowledge. The secret is there is no secret: it's just work and experience, same as achieving anything else.
Have you considered that your choice of Hub topics and who your competition is because of those choices may be a very large component as to why you are finding it challenging to get traffic? Do you know who you are up against for the same audience?
As for your numbered questions, did you know that HubPages has answered many of them for you and that they have even more info to share in the Learning Center? http://learningcenter.hubpages.com/
Hmmm. I said WILLING people. Beside this thread will be read by thousand of hubbers. I find it funny, I ask a question and you're the one who will gonna ask as if your challenging. Anyway, Thanks!!!
Getting that much traffic is not the norm for that many hubs. I know one of them that you are talking about and his hubs are seasonal. Right now he may be getting that kind of traffic, but once it is winter he won't be.
You want to use keywords, but you don't want to stuff your hubs with them. Google will count you down for that. Be sure to use your keyword in the title and repeat it a few times throughout your hub.
Use other keywords in your subtitles. I've been surprised what words I've been picked up for by Google that I never meant as keywords.
I am one of those hubbers with the numbers you are looking to reach. I would reccomend you go to the Writer Fox profile page and read his hubs on SEO. All of the answers you are looking for are there, and he has put it in a form that is easily to read and reference.
Thank you Dr.Mark. I know Writer fox and he is a good hubber. I guess, need to read it by myself.
Wow Dr. Mark. You are doing well. I wish I could attain that kind of traffic.
Thanks Barbara. I have a lot more than that person who posted his screen shot the other day, but noticed your comment: what a bad idea. I am reluctant to even discuss traffic, as I already have had a lot of my hubs copied, and who knows how many of them have been copied/rewritten.
If it were not for that problem, I would be willing to participate even more in the forums, since I usually read most of them.
Dr. Mark: I noticed that you write mostly in one niche area, which it appears you know a great deal about. I am trying to do the same, but my numbers are nowhere near what yours are. Of course I have far fewer articles than you do lol! I have often thought of dumping my other articles and just sticking with my niche, but some of them bring in decent page views, so I leave them lie. Do you think keeping them may be hurting my authority with Google?
According to some very experienced hubbers like Marisa Wright, it does absolutely no good to write in one niche area. I disagree, since many of my hubs are listed on the first page of Google. I write about what I know about, and they must give some value to that.
(I also use Pinterest but I only get about 100 page views a day from there.)
So do I think it is a good idea to dump those articles that do not fit? I did. Once I was up to 100, I started deleting Brazilian recipe hubs, others about slacking, gardening, or anything else that did not fit. I hit 100,000 soon after I started, when I had been on HP less than 9 months, and I expect that next accolade by the middle of next month.
Dr. Mark: Thanks for your input. I have a way to go before I hit 100 articles in my niche, but what I thought I would do is each time I add a new article, I would drop one from another area that is not performing well. I have noticed that the more articles I write in a particular area, the more views I get there, which is why I asked this question. Appreciate hearing your take on this.
Ken, I think you are picking web topics that are making it a lot harder for you to succeed here, but if you don't want to even consider the possibility let alone discuss it, that's your choice, and I'm fine with it.
I guess you are right with the topic I choose to write. As far as I have observed, hubs which are more likely written for answering purposes that are used in day to day living engage more traffic. Since I am a student, my target audience are students too, thats why I write topics which are taught in school but I have large competitors like about.com, wikimedia, wiki etc.
Out of curiosity, one hubber share his traffic stat on one forum and I was amazed how he was able to reach thousands of views in just one hub and guess what I have realized, most of it's title starts with "How" and "Why".
To be honest, my biology hubs are getting 20-50 plus views per day which I thought good enough but after seeing that stat of 1k+ views. Blimey! it was really possible to have views like that with just few hubs. This will be a hinge for my topics I guess, I need to experiment if it really works.

Since I joined HP there has been a constant battle against the rise and fall of traffic. We are often encouraged to tune our titles, edit our content and generally try to improve our Hubs. Now with the threat of having Hubs unfeatured, as well as the new quality assessment process taking place...

I will teach anyone, anything they want to know on how to make the best hubs if they can just expain to me what i'm doing wrong that they don't make any money. I'm betting that this is purely a computer knowledge / fill out the right forms / check the right box kinda thing but I have no idea...

Hello Everyone, I’m primarily a writer, not a computer buff or web-site designer and in my other attempts at on-line writing I haven’t been trying to earn money, so I haven’t bothered about gaining traffic. I’m patient, I’ve read it takes a while to build up earnings, but...
