Seems like my higher scoring hubs do not drive as much traffic as the mid range or even crazy low range. And that older hubs have more traffic even with low scores. And that earnings follow traffic and not scores.
All my statistic are so small that it is easy to track them. But they are growing in spite of my best efforts to be a flake.
I actually removed some hubs that were real low scores but had reasonable (for me) traffic -- I think that was stupid. I update/upgrade as reasonable for me.
Now I think that scores are becoming disconnected with performance. Perhaps someone could help HP merge the two?
Just food for thought really.
Well Eric you know I'm not really sure. What I am trying now is an experiment with the hubs which are not really featured I am posting my links on all my social sites to see what happens next. Some hubs I improved and I'm waiting from HP if they will be featured and some which I felt weren't going to be any good I have unpublished and will publish elsewhere.
Gypsy that is kind of a next step for me. Please let us know what happens.
Eric I say to you go ahead and repost as many as you can. Do like I do a bunch at a time which I specially select to be a mix of my poetry and stories and other kinds of articles I have dusted off. Now you might choose to edit some and polish up. I did on some but then there were so many I made sure they looked good to me and I started posting so to say left and right. I am on FB, Twitter, Google + and Linkedin.
I have lots more work on my reposting but so far - 20 hubs got refeatured and one hub which became quite popular reached 723 views. I would say that is very good. I am so glad it finally popped into my head to do this. After all why let good work go to waste shall we say?
Now all of these are still circulating here and there and I'm getting comments and likes. I just chose another group to repost and so I'm off and running.
Hope you have a great day and good luck to you with your hubs.
It all depends on your reasons for writing on HP. If you are writing in order to generate earnings, then traffic is vital. No traffic equals no clicks and so no revenue share.
If you are writing solely for the pleasure of putting your work out "there" so that you can share your thoughts with others, then traffic is irrelevant.
(Hub and hubber scores have a life of their own - they seem to bear no relation to either earnings or traffic, so I just ignore them. )
In a word - yes. Traffic is how you earn money here, so ideally you want your hubs to get a lot of traffic.
Even if your primary goal was just readership, well you'd still need a lot of traffic - so...
Yep, traffic is the most important.
I'm going 'full steam ahead' with most of my hubs. What this means is - I'm going through every single hub and updating them, especially those that are doing well traffic-wise. Working right down the list to improve and make them more 'reader-friendly.'
I'm even finding that with several hubs, I can break them down into 2 or 3 different hubs. I think I give away too much information.
My weakness is in using key words. I've had an awful time trying to figure out how the thing works.
You've brought up a good topic!
You'll be the first to know Eric because you can imagine my great surprise if I see that I've been spreading these hubs around and no results whatsoever. Surely there will be at least a handful of people who will read them. I am so eager to find out.

I don't worry about hubscores as long as my hubs get featured the first time I hit "publish". I know the score can start off low but can steadily climb over time. Curiosity has finally gotten the better of me...

I am just curious, all 92 hubs of mine are featured. In your opinion, should one delete (although Featured) any hubs where the score on a particular hub has eventually dropped way down from when it was initially...

I have only ever had one featured hub before but when I checked my account today I was shocked to find I have 13 in featured hubs due to low engagement. This is proof that traffic has fallen greatly. It's not just my...

I've been making a screendump of my overall hub stats each day to try and keep track of what's going on so I can work out "what works on HubPages" and what doesn't. The aim is to determine some sort of...
