I thought I would post this as I often find that I post only when something negative is happening. So, for today, I am happy because my traffic is really doing well.
Hi Brie, that's great news, you deserve it. You are so diligent in writing and supporting the community. I am delighted to here this good news!
Your traffic should be rising, you write great stuff.
Wow, what a sweet heart you are! Thanks "Old Poolman"
Yay! That is awesome. Well done! Hard work should be rewarded and it looks like it's going well for you Good inspiration for new Hubbers like me too!
Congrats on your traffic increase! If you don't mind me asking is it to specific hubs that your traffic has increased or across the board?
Also is the traffic coming from any particular places, such as pinterest or is it search traffic?
Well, it seems to be google. Here's what happened. My traffic started going up after not doing very well for quite awhile..so when I saw that it was going up it encouraged me to start writing more. At the same time, someone pointed me to PicMonkey. I had fooled around with PicMonkey before but for some reason had a hard time with it and now I had no problems so I started spicing up my photos. Then the whole thing really started ramping up. I was getting maybe 300 views, now I'm getting over 2,000 with occasional dips below 2,000 over the weekends. I also started revamping the articles that I had written before, updating them, updating the photos.
It's been great I hope it keeps up. I had gotten very discouraged about a year or so ago when we got panda slapped and I saw all my hard work just get waylayed. It's amazing what a little encouragement will do.
Thanks for the insight Brie. I haven't heard of PicMonkey before but I must look into it.
It's the bomb! I think it's really helped my photos stand out. Also, picmonkey makes it super easy to write on your photos which in turn makes them more acceptable on pinterest (which then drives traffic back to your page). I've totally revamped almost all my pictures..not an easy task when you have over 200 articles.

I have been advising people to use the free text editor, Picmonkey.com, for years. Today I went on the site to rework a photo, and after I did, the site would not allow me to down load it. Seems they now want everybody to pay a fee for use. Anybody else having this problem? ...

How do I get the lettering on my MFP images to look sharp and clear? After using picmonkey.com, saving the pic, and uploading it on the hub, the letters are always fuzzy. It looks even worse sometimes after I publish the hub. What am I doing wrong? (Back later, thanks)

I finally tried including a Made for Pinterest (MFP) image in my latest Hub! WryLilt and others have provided great tips on how to do this to increase traffic. I decided to give it a try.I attempted to add the text to the photo using GIMP 2 (a free graphics program), but this was not...

After oil prices came down to record lows after the Great 2008 Recession during the Obama administration, they have skyrocketed since Trump took office. Around the beginning of 2016, Brent Oil prices were around $30/bbl. Today, they are north of $80/bbl.Why?

We added the Pinterest "Pin It" button to the small collection of popular social-sharing buttons at the top of Hubs on Thursday. Pinterest has rapidly become one of the largest social media traffic drivers to HubPages, already substantially larger than Twitter and Reddit. Maddie wrote a...

Hi all,I've been here a month now and have 20 hubs, but when I read some of the forum posts I am worried that my traffic is low. I have had around 680 views total for all of my 20 hubs which averages about 6 per day for most of them, on average. I know it takes time to build up traffic and I am...
