what kind of articles people are interested in the most? what kind of articles that get lots of views? is it relationship? culinary? tell me your opinion and what kind of articles you like reading
When you find out, come back and tell all of us
Topics that are always relevant to most people. We are talking long-term and your average person. In other words, what is it everyone is always going to want information about?
People like to know:
how to make things
how to fix things
where to get a great deal
how to make their lives better
You can use something like Google Trends to get a few of what people are currently interested in. Google Adwords, on the other hand, will give you quite a good idea of how popular a topic is over a longer stretch of time.
I hear ya on that. Also what articles merit the Hub Network, 'cause in all due respect, some of them leave much to be desired.
It doesn't matter what we want to read about - you are not writing for us. The active community on HubPages is very small and you won't make any money writing for it. To be successful here, you need to write for people who are searching for answers to a question or problem on Google. That's how you get readers. Ask yourself what problems people have, that you could offer knowledgeable advice about.
Have you tried searching for trending topics with Google Trends? Something I do is query the term "who is" like at this link:
https://trends.google.com/trends/explor … q=who%20is
If you scroll down to the bottom of the page, you'll see "Related queries" and a box that let's you choose between "Top" and "Rising." You'll get good suggestions from both, but I tend to get more good ones from "Rising."
"Who is Harry Herbert" is the No. 1 "Rising" complete query at the moment. I have know idea who that is, but if you keep looking, you'll find topics that you know about. This is a great way to get views.
Once you understand that, try other queries like "How do you," "What does," and anything else you can think of.
There is opportunity in every niche. However, your knowledge should be in depth and you should offer something unique to the audience.
What do you know a lot about? Everyone has something they know well. My game guides get a lot of traffic because I make a lot of guides about one game.
For example, if you know a lot about a certain town, or a particular martial art, or a mental disorder, you should write as much as you can about that topic.
Another idea is to search the ideas you have in HubPages and see if the topic has been covered before. Try to contribute something that hasn't been talked about here yet.
Okay, thank you guys for giving me your thoughts! It gives me a gist of where I should start. I will check out google trend!

I write how-to and recipe hubs. I know the recipe hubs will make money eventually but I have read that technical hubs get more views. What is your thoughts or experience on this topic?

how do I increase traffic? Such as tips and tricks. I Love writing and I want to improve but I am also a stay at home mom so making a little side money would be nice.

I used to have an awesome and simple-to-use FREE keyword search tool (pre-Panda). It was lost when my last computer died, and as I wasn't writing online for some years, so I didn't miss it. Now that I'm trying to get back at it, I can't find a similar FREE tools. Google will sell me AdWords, or a...

Hi Hubbers, I'm new here, and I must say that it's a pretty great community so I thought I'd put my question out there...That is to ask, how long do you have to await a decent amount of traffic upon your hub?This is presuming that a hub is of good quality and has been based upon a keyword...

17 Hubs published and I get about one view per day between all of them? I realize it takes a while to establish yourself but is that normal? Does it pick up over time? All my articles are well over length and get maximum hubber checkmarks? Now, granted, I don't...
