I give up! Almost. I have a few hubs. Some are, frankly, designed to get a reaction. I don't get...
them. What am I missing?
I hope you aren't offended, but if you are giving up after only publishing 8 little hubs then maybe it's not for you. You can make it, IF you want to.
Have you read HubPages help sections that advises how to write good hubs? It's not that you don't have anything interesting to share. You do, but your hubs are too short. Your titles should be more attention grabbing. The ones I read don't have pictures and should be laid out better. You should ask other hubbers to critique your hubs in the forums under the "Extreme Hub Makeover" section.
How can you expect people to find you? Have you made comments on other people's hubs? You can help out other hubbers by answering their questions. You can leave interesting answers and people will go to your profile to see what you're all about. If you want others to be interested in what you have to say, show interest in what they have to say also.
Also, have you promoted your hubs on other websites like Digg, SheToldMe, RedGage, Snipsly or even Facebook, etc? There's a lot to it than just posting a few short hubs and hoping people will somehow come across them.
Best wishes. Welcome to HubPages. You can do it.
Fantastic! I think you have given me just what I need. I suppose I'm just too lazy. I'd rather have people come tome and than to go after them. I'm more used to fishing from the bank with a cane pole than wading out into the river with a fly and fly rod. Thanks. I will try to address each of the points you have raised. Note I did say "almost"
What do you hbs provide to the reader? Information? Humor? Controversy? What you want to say is mot necessarily what people want to flock to read about.

I've almost finished working through my entire portfolio, to improve aesthetics, declutter for CTR, and to comply with Hubpages TOS.It was a valuable exercise, as whenever I do this I find Amazon products which are no longer supplied or are currently unavailable, small formatting errors, comments...

How well do poems and short stories do on HP?I noticed a while back somewhere that HP staff had mentioned that creative writing such as poems and short stories don't do as well as informational pieces. I'm curious to know about the earnings of some of the people who publish a lot of these. Do you...

One of my game guides gets 100 views a week, even though the game came out in 2014. When I wrote it, I didn't really think it'd do as well as it is. Have any of your articles done surprisingly well?

I have read a few threads now about a google slap and dropping traffic. I just had a look at my stats, got a few red arrows and a few blue ones. The overall number is pretty much my average. I feel for you guys that have had traffic drops and hope its a bit of a glitch, something that will sort...

How can this be done? Some hubbers only have a small amount of hubs and not a lot of followers. How can they make $100 a week when some of us who write more hubs, mind you quality stuff, use all the links, amazon capsules and still only maybe make a few bucks a month? I would love...
