How to Turn Good Traffic Into Great Traffic

    After being here for 2 1/2 years and gaining a significant amount of traffic, I'm wondering how to take it to the next level.

    The obvious answer might be writing more hubs and whatnot but what else can be done to turn very good traffic into great traffic.

    I've been able to corner a couple of niches that have grown a significant amount of interest lately but I'd like to take it up a notch, let's say turn 1000s of views into 10,000+ daily views.

    Any ideas?

      I'm afraid you've already listed your best options. Sadly there's no quick and easy way to receive that boost or we'd all be doing it.

      Keep writing quality, searchable articles and getting on the niche sites, and your views should steadily increase.

      Go back to hubs that aren't doing as well and add more info, images and videos to them.

        Detouring a bit, but this raises an interesting question: is it better to focus on articles that are receiving the most or the least traffic?

        Of course, the idea is to improve the traffic, but might be more worthwhile to focus on the higher-performing Hubs, as they seemingly have more potential. Either way, updates can't hurt.

          Some would disagree with me, but I have found that renovating failing hubs can really help your view numbers.  Otherwise, you might just dump them.  It's good to add to successful hubs as well, but my attitude towards this is that "if it ain't broke, don't fix it".

    If a Hub has already been moved to a niche site then I don't think you need to do any more work on it. 

    I would suggest pick your highest-trafficked Hubs that are still on HubPages, and work on improving them and submitting them to the niche sites, one every 14 days.

      How about occasional tweaking mostly to update information for articles on the niche sites, I assume that's not an issue.

      I've been working on a bunch of decently trafficked articles on Hubpages but I'm probably missing something (bad subtitles, titles, and whatnot).

      Where's a good place on the forums to submit a link of a featured hub that I could get advice/tips? I've never had someone in the forums review a hub of mine so I'm uncertain of the process for featured hubs.

        It's always good to do the occasional tweak to update Hubs, IF there is a genuine piece of new material that adds value to the Hub.  I would never tweak for the sake of tweaking.

        There is only one place on the forums where you're allowed to post links to your Hubs, and that's in the Improving Your Article section.
