Try to change your title first. Don't bother about the URL. Make it unique and then people will read
You may not be doing anything wrong. Remember there are millions and millions of articles on the internet - just because you've written one, doesn't mean it will get noticed.
One way to get a few readers is to be active on HubPages - join the forums, find other Hubbers whose work interests you and follow them, read and comment on other Hubs, etc.
The issue of how to get search engine traffic to your Hubs is a big topic and a learning curve!
Have you checked out the Learning Center?
You will want to make sure you follow best practices for making content, and then there are articles on traffic and promotion too.
I see you are writing about "How To Be Happy".
When I searched that topic on Google I found that it returned "About 597,000,000 results", so it is very competitive to get traffic to your hubs through people using those search terms I would imagine.
Follow the advice from Relache to read the learning center.
Then read all of the hubs that are written about getting better traffic to your hubs.
Basically you need to learn about;
Keywords and keyword phrases
How many people are searching for your keywords
What is the competition for your keywords
Good luck and welcome..
Winners never quit and Quitters never win! So be confident and work hard. Finally success will follow you. All the best.
When you read other people's hubs and make comments, they usually respond. Share it with your social media friends. The best is, of course, is to get traffic from search engines. Keywords, then, would be key in getting this type of traffic. As others have suggested, changing your title to include keywords people search for, may make a difference.

Having been on HP now for more than four years while kinda' inactive for the last two I am looking more closely. I have cleaned up my portfolio from over 100 hubs with low views to now about 10.

I know that this is the most asked question here, but I'd still really appreciate it if anybody answered.I've been on Hubpages for about 6 months now, and I've just published my 7th Hub, and I'm starting to write a few more. As of right now, I have 239 total views, and each Hub has roughly 36...
