Need answer on the Mystery of low traffic despite writing quality hubs

    Hi Guys, I have about 50 featured hubs of high quality  but my traffic is hardly 20 views per day. Most of my hubs belong to niche topics which generally won't compete with generalised topics on Google search. However, my traffic is extremely poor. I have heard about the Google panda update and hubpages submitting separate domains to google. Im not sure if the low traffic is related to this. I would be very grateful if fellow hubbers could advise me what is the exact problem with my hubs

    Thanks in advance

    I see that only one of your hubs has been moved to a HubPages niche site. If you want good traffic, you need to have as many of your hubs as possible on niche sites rather than on hubpages.com. Google downgrades articles on hubpages.com (that's why HP created the niche sites), so traffic for posts there will always be limited. You should read up on the niche sites, and then start nominating your hubs to be moved. But review them first to be sure they are of the highest quality, or they will not be accepted.

      Thank you. However Im unaware of the niche site facility. Im also unable to see which hub of mine is moved to the niche site. Could you please advise me on that and also tell me how to move my hubs to niche site. Thanks again

        Basically what has happened is that HubPages has created a suite of brand new websites.  You cannot choose to write for those sites, though.  All we can do is write for HubPages as usual, then the staff decides whether our Hubs are good enough to be moved to one of the niche sites. Only the best are taken.

        The staff look at every new Hub that is published, but they don't have time to look over all the existing Hubs.  That is why we have the facility to submit our Hubs using the button.

    As Ron said, HubPages management decided to create the specialised "niche" sites because the main site was not doing well.   Hubs moved to the niche sites are, in general, doing much better than they were on the main site - so your goal should be to get your Hubs moved. 

    If you look at one of your Hubs (NOT in Edit mode), you'll see a button "Submit to a HubPages network site" at the top.  When you click on that, you'll be led through a questionnaire which is meant to help you ensure your Hub is ready to be submitted.   

    You can submit one Hub every 14 days.

    Having said that, though, I don't think your Hubs are well enough presented yet.  The writing is fine but there are problems with layout etc.  I suggest you read three of my Hubs.  You'll find them on the slider on my profile.   They are How to Optimise Your Hubs, How to Use Photos Legally and the Basic Rules.  Apply what you learn and your Hubs will soon make the grade.
