    Hi this is Araaz, I joined hubpages few months back. I am a poet and have been publishing my poetry's here. My poems get published but they doesn't get much views. I want to know if its a good idea to share poetry here.
    I am quite confident about my work but maybe I am writing on the wrong site.
    Suggestions please.

    Hi Araaz,

    Welcome to Hubpages! Overall, poetry doesn't do really well traffic wise, because it doesn't match the questions people are Googling. However you can read Cardisa's guide to SEO for poetry which has some good info to optimise your poetry.

    However if you're looking for longterm readers and feedback, it may be better to publish an anthology on Amazon, join a poetry specific site or start your own website.

    It's very, very difficult to get readers for creative writing on HubPages, or anywhere else on the internet for that matter.

    Your poems have a MUCH better chance of finding an audience on a specialised poetry site.  The trouble is, none of them offers payment for your poems.
