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.
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.

So far I've mostly been relying on writing good content and trusting people to find it, but after a spike this summer, my traffic here at HP has collapsed to some rather depressing levels, considering the number of hubs I have, and I've been thinking maybe it's time to start putting more effort...

After 6 months on the site i've started the really wonder how many backlinks is a reasonable number to any hub, and really to a hub becoming successful? Or is it simply a lottery.What kind of figures do other hubbers consider?

I am really curious as to how much one hub can bring in a day? I have one hub that I get an average of 200 views a day but then others where I will get as little as 1?

After reading another info packed hub from Mark Knowles I note he recommends not using the revenue sharing feature of sites such as Shetoldme and snipsly as your adsense code will leave a 'footprint' for google to see you are creating your own backlinks.See: ...

I have been on hubpages for two months. I have read multiple articles on SEO and backlinking. Ninety percent of my hubs do not have backlinking. But I choose for a while to say no backlinking. It was "different" I thought and "original". ...

I read your post about your achievement here after a year of publishing on HP and I am very impressed I quit a year ago after writing 7 hubs. I've been writing for AC, Bukisa, Triond, Break Studios, and Demand Studios instead. I've been making money at these places, I usually average between...
