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.
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.

Over 1/4 of my hubs have not been moved to a niche site. They do not have much traffic from Google, so it is not HPs fault that they have not been selected. There is nothing wrong with them, but they do not have "Google love" so are only moved in the slow process where I ask HP to move...

I know a lot of you are curious about how the niche sites are doing. Recently, 21 of my articles were moved over. Some were edited, some were not. Most did not have ads, but of the ones that did, some were left in place, others were converted to in text links to products.I've been...

I am experiencing an overall average off 66 percent less page views per day, for seven days versus a week previous and for the past two months. Such a huge drop in page views makes me think that Google has tuned up something again. I do know that I don't have the time and energy to keep...

This is my quandary. I have a total of 356 hubs. Of those, 354 are published; the remaining 2 are still just unfinished drafts.When I scroll down the list, an awful lot seem to be unfeatured for lack of traffic. So, I did a filter search to find out exactly how many were in that...

At the beginning of December my traffic was down by around 60%. My hubs were in the same position in the SERPs as they had been previously, so the whole situation was rather odd. Today however, my traffic is up to pre December levels and climbing. Anyone else experiencing a surge in traffic?

Since things have kind of been changed up has anyone else felt the sting of low views...and longer updating times? Is this just another lull and things will pick back up or do we need to work harder to get more views in?
