    The thing is: I have written around 25 hubs; out of which around 22 are featured. Yet, It seems that no one is reading them. What should I do to increase my pageviews?

      I would just keep writing my best material..perhaps you are new. It can take a little while for articles to catch on from my understanding.

        I am new.
        I hope you're right. because it is frustrating to publish 3 or 4 hubs a day, get them featured and then get almost negligible traffic.

      I am new as well. It just seems like this is a process..like you have to pay your dues so to speak. I think if you are here for the right reasons you can have success. Just takes time.

      To write 25 hubs in two weeks is a lot. I read through a few of the hubs and I though that you needed to give more background information or introduction to what or who you were writing about.(ie. What is M&B books?)
      Some are very short, so try to extend them a little more .Try my opinion. wink

      Thanks Stacie. That seems like good advice. But the thing is the summary is limited by 200 characters. Makes it a little difficult.

        Not the summary but the introductory paragraph, i.e. the first paragraph of the article. Tell your readers what the hub is about and why you've written it. A decent hub is around 800 - 1500 words.

        Hi Priya and welcome to HubPages. I am sure what Stacie means is to add some "background information or introduction" to your first text capsule, which will increase your word count. The Summary does not count towards word count.

        By repeating your title in the first text capsule right up front, you will get better notice on Google.Also, share your articles on  Pinterest, Facebook and other media sites by using the share buttons on the top left of your published hubs.

          You mean the first text capsule right after summary?

            Yes, exactly. Let me hop over to one of your hubs to see how you start it, then give you an example.

              Okay

                Firstly, I would add a new first text capsule (before your first example of common things) and in your title make it Mills and Boon instead of M&B. I never heard of Mills and Boom, so had no idea what M&B means and am sure few others do. "M&B" will not rate very well in searches, but Mills and Boom would rate better.

                As an example of the first text capsule, explain what your hub is about:

                Example only: There are five common things we find in almost every M&B (Mills and Boon) book. These common factors distinquish the writing style and character descriptions.

                Add a little more to this, such as when did Mills and Boon first publish? What was the first book? Who are Mills and Boon? Do they have first names? Do they always write about similar stories? Many people will know nothing about the authors or their books. Help your readers to learn about them before you list the common examples.

                Hope this helps. Then don't forget to share your articles on social medias.

                  It does help really well. I am overwhelmed that you went out of your way to help me. So thank you very much, Phyllis.

      I would not even look at traffic at this point. I'm not.

        Priya Baruaposted 2 years agoin reply to this

        I think that is the best advice

      Im only now starting to get more consistent traffic after nearly a year and 80+ hubs later. I'm also no SEO expert because many writers did much better in half the time with far less hubs, so the best bet is to keep writing and improve on your hubs. If you keep at it, then the traffic and earnings will come.

      Start with the basics - you are going to want to attract readers through the search engines (google, bing, etc..) if you want to have a regular stream of readers.

      Ask your self how many people are going to be typing "The 5 people you will see at your school graduation" into the search engine?? You can find how many times people search for phrases through the Google Keyword tool. Learn about keywords.....

      Most of your titles are aimed at social media rather than search looking at them; so if you want people to read them you are going to need them to be shared on social media - twitter, FaceBook, etc.. Typically this will result in a quick peak in views as your friends take a look but after this unless they are so good that people feel the need to share them to all of their friends then your views will rapidly vanish...

        That makes sense. What should I do know?

          Use the search box at the top of the page to find hubs about using keywords and do some research to learn what you need to do.
          Also search about using social media marketing.

          You have a lot of reading to do......
