      With just one hub, you aren't going to get much traffic here.You need to write more than one to get search engines to consider it worthwhile. Share all the others that you write here  on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest etc

      You may also need to learn SEO and figure out some good keywords to use and write about. There are lots of articles here on SEO. Be sure to read them.

        Try reading this article and others by the same person. He/She seems to know what he is  doing.

        There are people writing here who have thousands of hubs.  Two is hardly enough to gain credibility.

    Your Hub is indexed, check here: … p;oe=utf-8

    So, it's in the search engine, just might not be high in the SERPs. Also, might not have very many people searching for that topic. You would need to find out what people are searching for and if your title reflects what they are typing into the search engine.

    Edit: My understanding is that that is a saturated niche and is difficult to rank for the search engine results pages.

    Firstly - you will have too much competition from other established gaming sites - Who would you trust? A single page on HP or a site that is dedicated to reviewing games?
    Secondly - how many people are actually searching for your keywords? - Use Google keyword planner to find out.
    Thirdly - You only have ONE hub in your subdomain - You hardly look like an authority on your subject if you only publish one hub.
    Fourthly - Your hub is full of poor English - you need to improve significantly - any reader will not get past the first few lines.

    HP provides you a platform for you to write - it does not guarantee you visitors.... If you want to get visitors improve your writing and learn SEO etc... Not just blame the platform you are writing on.

      You can also consider these two things:

      1 - That very few 'experts' in SEO or anything else in life, became who they are by asking someone else to solve their problems. To become an online writer with sufficient 'authority' to be considered above the herd, you need to be resourceful enough to read your own work as excellent from another reader's perspective, to read and predict the trends, to take whatever time it takes to read & learn and to be serious enough to learn how to be resourceful.

      2 - The best way to be seen as authoritative with search engines and thus, being someone who Google may be prepared to boost in the page rankings (without having to undergo all the steps within my first point)... is to Buy a controlling interest in Google!
      But unfortunately to achieve that one,
      you must be at the very least an expert in Absolute Resourcefulness!  sad

      Hey Man
      I didn't blame hubpages for my hub.
      I just asked that is there any seo expert in hubpages team.  Coz my hub is not indexed in google.

      And i didn't expected that HP give me bunch of Visitors for my 25 games list. I just asked for only 48 page views in 5 month. And all views came from hubpages.

      I'm  not expert enough to discuss with you. But im good researcher.

        You want your visits to come from Google - not internally within Hubpages.. So you need to learn what Google is looking for and how to write to attract visitors from Google and how to keep them...

          HP won't give you ANY visitors, that's not how it works.  Every member of HubPages is a writer, not a reader - their main purpose here is to write, though we all read Hubs by our friends from time to time. So hoping for visitors from within HubPages is a waste of time. 

          As others have said, you have one Hub, on a very popular subject with lots of grammatical mistakes.  Look how many other well-written articles and blogs there are in the search results - why should Google pay any attention to yours?

            As Marisa says, views of other hubbers don't matter. You need outside traffic, from Google. Plus you should try to build up more hubs, about 50 is a point where you will begin to be noticed, if your work is good.

            Many don't read the Terms of Service in the beginning, because they want to write that first piece to see if they can do it. But it's worth it to sit and patiently read all of it, because it's all info which will help you.

            You say you have a blog, is it under your real name? Name recognition is important, and if you have a good blog, and use the same name here, Google will recognize you more quickly. Also, I write in a very saturated subject, and it hasn't hurt me. People like what they like. Just make sure your writing is better than theirs. Best Wishes.

              Hi Jean

              Your reply is really helpful, I was actually wondering how many hubs it may take for writers to become more noticed. 50 hubs is quite a high number but with patience and discipline it can be done

      From my humble experience, there are no SEO experts, just some who claim they know something... You need to find your own way and what ever works. The main thing is to have great content that someone wants to read and promote it. SEO is a game people play to game the system which in the case of Google search, no one knows the algorithm and it changes constantly. Good luck.

        If you don't know how to use keywords etc., you will probably never get any search engine traffic. Even Google tells you to do that and it is not gaming the system. It is a part of SEO. There is what is called white SEO and black SEO.

        Sharing links on social media is also SEO. You are probably doing some of these things without realizing that they are a part of white SEO. Not all SEO is bad.

          I agree that Google is constantly changing there algorithm and that it is senseless to keep jumping hoops to try to keep up. In fact it is impossible to keep up with all that.
