My hub has been published for about a month now, I notice no cmments and no followers, I get the feeling as if no one is seeing my hub. why is that? Help!
You have only one Hub, and you haven't been active in the community (reading other people's Hubs, commenting, or posting in the forums). So no one knows you exist!
You will not earn money from just one Hub. You will need at least 20 Hubs just to qualify for Adsense. Until you can get your Adsense account, you can't sign up for the HP Earnings Program - and frankly, without that, it's not worth writing here because the possibility of earning from other programs here is so limited.
Go to your accounts page where you can see if you have had traffic or not. Also check to see if the solid black circle with the H, found on the right, is there.
You have one hub. Followers are other hubbers. Your most important traffic is from the the search engines.
Actually, not having followers, or commnents on a hub is not a big deal, unless you are on Facebook.
flpalermo: It might be worthwhile to have a lot of "friends" on Facebook, but a long list of followers doesn't mean much on Hub Pages. You do not earn from the number of followers that you have. The number of followers you have does not help with Google ratings for where your hub is placed in the google search engine.
Comments don't earn anything, nor do they affect placement on search engines.
Not everybody leaves comments. Not everybody follows you.
Thanks for your prompt response it is really encouraging, because i was starting to think that something was wrong with my hub.
How then can I earn money with my hub? does it faciliate PPC (Pay Per Click)? Is it just the sales of the products from Amazon & Ebay you can earn from or is there other ways?
I read and leave comments on many Hubs that have been around for awhile. I found them when I looked up those Hubbers, not because the Hubs were mentioned.
HI Alton Hayden,
I am no expert but I think the main reason your hub is not getting views is because of the title. Your title should be the question that you are trying to answer with your article, and it should be worded in the way that someone might type the question into a search engine. Although I like your current title, I don't think anyone is searching for typing "Face the giants of the Workplace" into Google.
I don't have time at the moment to actually read your hub, so I'm not sure what the gist of it is, but I believe it is about workplace violence. A better title might be something like "How to prevent workplace violence" or "How to spot the signs of a potentially violent employee" or something along those lines.
Creative titles are fun to come up with and work great in a print magazine or newspaper, but in online writing they can prevent readers from finding your work.
Cheers, and welcome to HubPages.
I really appreciate that response, It makes perfect sense. Now I understand and the next hub title will be different.
Thanks again for being so clear.

Hello Fellow Hubbers,I have been here for awhile so am not naive to making Hubs, some fairly successful ones at that but I am surprised that this Hub hasn't done better. Honestly, my wish for this Hub to do well is so others can gain what my family has from it's message.I would be very appreciative...

There are three or four comments(one is at 24 hours so it may not count.) How could I have 0 page views if people are reading it and even stopping to comment?

I have only 2 views today, and 23 views for the whole week.I have tried everything to get traffic, and nothing is working for me. I even joined several social sites, and my traffic has only...

I hear the phrase, "mature a hub," a lot. What actually happens when a hub matures? I know people say that after a hub has matured (around six months) it starts to do much better. But what actually happens when a hub matures? Thanks!

First a disclaimer is in order.I broke the evergreen rule with this approach. I knew it going in and did it anyway. What the hell, sometimes rules are made to be broken. Sometimes a gamble pays off, often it doesn't. I do live in Las Vegas though so it is in my blood! Hubs should be on evergreen...
