      I don't promote my HP, I just try and use good quality keywords and make sure their in the title and in the body at least 2 or 3 times! Yes my traffic is hit or miss. Lately I have also been updating my hubs with more content and adding a few pictures and just trying to make the best hubs I can!

      I still am learning and I will get better!

      The reason why your traffic is falling is because when a hub is featured, it's placed right here where I found this forum post. Thus, the hub is bound to get some traffic. Later, the article sinks and can only get traffic from other hubs, or search engines(the best thing since sliced bread).
      I would disagree with other contributors that certain topics can't receive traffic. It all depends on your keyword research and content.
      By the way I saw your hubs, I'd urge you to do 2 things; Drop by the Hubpages' learning center and look for an article called 'How to craft a good article title'.
      Secondly, make use of Google's 'Keyword planner'.
      Don't expect your hubs to get the kind of traffic you'd be proud of until they are weeks, or months old. Hope this helps.

      You've just joined 12 days ago and have 6 hubs...

      Sure the hubs will get indexed on Google within 24 hours (mostly) but you're not going to be on Page 1 in 24 hours. You need to give your hubs some time (2-3 months at least) to mature on Google first.

      Even then your hubs might not bring in much search engine traffic because your topics are very broad. You need to write on more specific topics and study some keyword research.

      I've found Pinterest to be an excellent place to promote hubs, posts etc.

      Write more hubs on low competition topics.

    That's a normal trend here at HP as traffic will fall and rise again and again; also, it depends on which traffic source you want to improve: Traffic from HP is largely associated with eye catching titles and quality content. For traffic from the search engines; get it here

    I don't.

    I use a good title, matching what people would type into Google on that topic. As Cardisa says, people Google questions, not titles. I throw on an MFP image and let it sink or swim.

    If a hub is doing well in a year, I'll go back and use the keywords for some retroactive SEO changes.

    Be careful about writing on incrediblly popular topics. Sure, brownie recipes are popular. But if you google "brownie recipe" you'll probably turn up millions of pages.

    That's your hub's competition. Why should Google list your brownie recipe ahead of all of those others?

    You CAN break through on popular topics, but it's difficult.

    I suggest making a list of five hobbies, areas of expertise, or topics that YOU know a lot about and are passionate about. The more you know and are excited about a topic, the better your chances of writing a well-informed, lively, interesting or useful article that will attract traffic.

    In other words, don't try to attract traffic by following the crowd. Write on a topic for which, if someone asked you a question about it, and you gave an answer, they'd say, "Wow! Thanks!" and mean it! smile
