So my first Hub went well, I think, but it has 0 traffic from search engines and I don't think it is really engaging for people reading it.
Can you guys tell me how to improve, please? I want to improve it a little more. Any constructive criticism is more than welcome!

Your Hub is indexed by Google. You only published this 11 days ago and it is your only Hub. It probably doesn't rank for any search query terms yet. Did you do keyword research before writing your Hub? Do you have links from other websites pointing to your Hub?
I did do keyword research, it didn't look like it was too hard to rank.
I didn't create any backlinks. Should I? And how?
Thank you for your reply.
First of all, your title is too long and not properly capitalized. Try this one:
Four Proven Methods to Improve Your Memory
I think you have a good chance of ranking for that.
Your Summary (Meta Description) isn't so great. You want to encourage people to actually click through to your Hub on a search engine results page. Here's what your snippet looks like now, with the too long title:
I suggest something more like this for the Summary:
Discover four proven methods to improve your memory, increase your cognitive performance, enhance your overall well being, and improve your quality of life.
Replace your first and third images. The ones you are using are water marked, which probably means you don't have permission to use them. Try to find something on Pixabay.com. Also, you need captions. (Be careful with these because they will also be used as Alt Image Tags.) If you don't know how to write a good Alt Tag, see my Hub on SEO.
As for links, try to post on Facebook groups.

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!
