    Hi Everyone

    I imagine all of you get tired of answering the same old questions sometimes. However, I don't understand what I am doing wrong. I have been here for eight months with a total of 54 hubs, but I still get low traffic. Normally, my traffic for the all of the combined hubs ranges between between 30 to 65 per day. My total adsense earnings is around 20 so far. I realize when I first started publishing at HP my articles needed improvement. However, that was in the beginning. I am at a loss what to do. Would you please looks at my hubs and give me some insight and suggestions into what I am doing wrong and what I need to improve. Thank you in advance.

    Here are my overall theories,


    A lot of people are going to tell you about promoting your hubs, but I myself don't do a lot of that.  I prefer to write about topics of higher interest and optimize my content and tags to draw traffic without a lot of extraneous effort on my part.

      That was a great hub, Relache. Thank you. I guess I don't have a great understanding of how to promote my hubs without going to a lot of excess work. I understand that the more relevant, quality backlinks you have increase your rank in the search engine results. However, I don't understand how to get them without alot of added work. I tried listing some of my hubs with Delicious and Stumble Upon when I first started, but I didn't get any traffic from there. It's also my understanding that promoting them on social networks doesn't bring in the right kind of traffic for conversion. I don't understand completely how the article directories work. If you use an article directory to get a backlink, don't you have to rewrite the hub so you don't have duplicate content? That seems like a lot of added work. I've tried writing webmasters and asking for links to. I've had very limited success with that; I wrote too many emails to count and only gained a few links. So, what is an easier way to get backlinks and promote your hubs? Thank you for your response, Relache.

    It is time consuming promoting your hubs all over the place especially when you have a lot of them. However in my experience it is worth the effort.

    seamist you are having a hub score 97 and still you are getting 35-65 traffic. It doesnt look good cause the fact for 95+ score is 100 views per day.

      Hi Aniketgore
      I don't think the authors hub score has that much to do with traffic because my author's score has always hovered above 90, but yet my traffic has always been low. Thank you for your response.

    Seamist, you might also find reading the section called "Using Hub Metrics For a Quick Check-Up" helpful in tuning up your Hubs.  That will tell you which hubs have poor backlinks and which ones aren't getting visitors to stick around (which is really key to earnings)

    adsense traffic and Hubscore have very very little to do with one another. My Hubscore is 92 and daily traffic for 32 hubs is usually around 600. To sum it up, it's all about choosing quality keywords that are highly optimized, and creating quality backlinks to your hubs. In the near future I'm going to put together a blog that discusses these concepts, which I've learned through several SEO experts from Australia. (Ed Dale, Daine Raine and Guru Bob) They put out a free seminar each year called the The ThirtyDayChallenge.
