I have four articles that are on niche sites, but they rarely get any daily views. How can this be?
Hi I know what you mean. I have a few dozen on niche sites. I find that I can expect a third of them to get very few hits, a third to get a few a day, and a third, the "rock stars," get ten or more a day. But this is only after they've been published on a niche site for at least six months.
PeachPurple, I looked at your 'Tips to Eat Well and Age Well' hub, and there are a lot of grammatical errors in it. I particularly noticed that you stated that the majority of elderly people are stubborn, illiterate and stuck-in-the-mud. Making blanket (and erroneous) statements like that will win you no favors with the editors, or your readers. How would you think an older person would feel reading that about themselves?
Menopausal women aren't elderly And the food pyramid is not considered to be a healthy model of eating any more.
If your other hubs are written in the same manner, they probably won't get moved to the niche sites. You might think about working on them and changing the tone of your writing.
I'm off to bicker with myself now, as I have no-one else to talk to other than my dogs.
you are actually lucky to have your hubs transferred to the niche sites. All my 132 hubs are still here, not moved to the niche sites. Just wait. Maybe you can try share the link at social medias
Peachpurple, if none of your Hubs have been moved yet, then it's very unlikely they will be. You have to submit them (using the "Submit to a network site" link at the top of each Hub). You can submit only one Hub every two weeks.
However, the fact that not one of your Hubs was picked in the first selection makes me worried. As I mentioned on another thread, it would be worth reading my Hub on How to Optimize your Hub - I think it would help you revise your Hub so they are in a style HubPages is looking for, for the niche sites.
I suggest starting at the top - submit your best-performing Hubs first. Make sure they meet the new rules - you'll find a summary of them in my Hub on The Basic Rules.
She's right, peachpurple. You have to improve your articles and submit it to a niche site. I made a couple of mistakes publishing articles that are not worthy of being on niche sites. Now, I'm waiting until October 21 to publish another article that I worked very hard on. It's an Evergreen article on climate change and hurricanes.
I need help with that as well. Things have changed within the last year. I signed up for Hubpages in mid July of last year. Only now have I decided to follow Wrylit's advice on how to Title Hubs. They always need to start with a question. After that, my autism article went from 3 views per day to 14 views today. I also changed the title of one of my hubs, and that hub kept getting traffic.
I think you are doing very well for a new Hubber, Ivan. Oh, and I agree with you about HubberScore and HubScore.
Yeah. Hubberscore and Hubscores mean nothing when the simplest thing to do would be to write more articles to earn traffic. Money and friendship is what drives me to this site.
Please write more article and get them published also try for marketing your article in regular basis
Banned. Probably for stating the obvious. Oh well.
You can't promote articles other than to help your articles be criticized. Promotion of articles are strictly prohibited.
Dude may be banned, but I think he was referring to "promotion" in places other than HubPages, like social media (Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, etc., etc.)
Just having your stuff on a niche site isn't enough. It would be nice if all you had to was post your article, and the Internet would come beating down your door... but it rarely happens that way.
You gots to hustle 'n' pimp yo'self in order to draw eyeballs to your stuff, cuz if you got no traffic, then you got no dinero. No bueno, but true.
That's true. Promotion on other sites is legal. Question: Why did he get banned?
He probably got banned for something we don't know about. He's not going to get banned just from being banal on a forum thread.
At any rate, in answer to your original question, to get significant traffic to an article takes two things; (1) it has to be about something people look for and isn't already covered by a strong competitor and (2) it takes time.
Looks like most of your articles are not very old yet; it can take anywhere from 3 months to a year for an article to start getting traffic, depending on the subject. In terms of being search friendly, I've found it's mostly helpful to work on titles to make sure they are search friendly, that titles are phrases people use to search in the search engine. You should go to Wrylilt's profile and look at her articles about crafting good titles.

There you go Beware that they are over two years old and things have changed a little bit. Still tons of good info though.
I briefly went through your profile and I noticed that you have a habit of writing multiple articles in spurts. This usually is not a good idea because it really messes with your traffic.
Also, here are some articles from Glenn Stok explaining how to write articles with good viewership:

Also, do you have a Google Analytics account?
I hope this helps!
What? It doesn't make any difference whether you write three in a week or over three months. Eventually it all evens out.
Marcuscaine, I think you are confused. It doesn't matter if you write in spurts.
You may have read that advice elsewhere (not on HubPages), because it's good advice if you have your own blog. Blogs do best if you post regularly (say, once a week or once a fortnight). If you posted five articles then did nothing for five weeks, your blog would suffer.
However, on HubPages, new articles are being posted every single day by other Hubbers, so it doesn't matter how often YOU post, there's always lots of fresh material.
Yes, I have a google analytics account
I think the niche sites vary in traffic attractiveness, even if overall they are still better than HubPages. My hubs on Letterpile barely get anything too. (I depend on Owlcation, followed by Wanderwisdom)
I wouldn't expect to make much money off of 4 niche site articles. I have 10k+ views and have only made a few bucks on HubPages.
So what? I edit articles for money and fun. I'm on HubPages to make friends and earn money.
I looked at your profile. You have a very rare trophy in here, even rarer than mine's.

After a newly published hub was moved to DenGarden the ranking for my third most important keyword jumped from page 7 to #3. The hub was on hubpages.com for 2 days I guess and it's been on Dengarden for 5 hours now (indexed for 5 hours on Google). Rankings will fluctuate a lot, but I think this is...

I'm curious if anyone knows if the new editors that were hired have completed the training and are on their own now, or if article standards have changed for some reason? The last few months I've had some very old and not updated articles moved to niche sites. I'm happy more of my articles are...

Out of 12 articles 7 have been moved to niche sites. All 7 seemed to have a drop in viewers since being moved. Will this level out at some point?
