They were mostly the first ones I wrote, and to be honest were getting at most 2 reads a week plus no clicks in 4 months so thats why. If I feel I can get anything out of a hub I will try and make it better but those 8 were beyond help lol !!
What's going on here? What night? C'mon? I mean, badcompany and fortunerep are like two of my most respected people in here - if they made a fool of themselves I wanna know about it! c'mon, fortune, badcompany, somebody, anybody holla at me on this!
Gosh sorry, I didn't actually reply to your OP because I was going off the header.
Tweak them. Look at where you can improve them. You can unpublish them and re-write sections, add better-related keywords or add them into the actual text if you have the right ones already but haven't used enough.
You can also make better use of headers (the capsules), pictures and so on. Plus don't forget to link similar hubs together and write a seprate summary rather than have it calculated automatically.
The summar is what shows up on search engines - make sure it grabs the attention of those looking for what you have written about.
And if you need further help, simply use the hubpages search facility. Type in what you're looking for: 'tweaking hubs' for eg and see what comes back. I'd check the forum and hubs if I were you.
Yep, all forgotten and forgiven. Besides we did entertain a lot of people that night and I doubt if we are the only two people to have ever made fools of ourselves. But tis deff in the past my friend !
I've found that over time, there's been almost none of my Hubs that didn't start earning money. Even low-paying ones. Out of my (looks at account) currently 139 Hubs, only a handful (yeah, I mean five) have not earned anything in three years, and they all happen to be newer ones... so I expect that will change over the next year.
I've gone back to improve and diversify content, perhaps even changing the angle of a Hub's take on a topic and I can almost always boost a Hub's performance. I also did a lot of experimentation with keywords and have cut out a lot of the ones that knock your Hubs down to that one-star potential earning level. I also used the competitive ad filter on my AdSense account to block some sites I felt were serving really crap ads to my Hubs and that's helped too.
Relache your advice is second to none, I have read a lot of your stuff and deff it has improved how I approach hubs, you are without doubt one clever lady and I just want to say cheers for making your advice public !
Relache I'm not saying not to rewite hubs. It just seems that's all some people do.
After just 4 or 5 months here, I don't really think I have a large enough sample to start making wholesale judgements on any hub. I'm really just starting to get a sense of what works well, what works really well, and what never should've happened. I'm going to go through the Xmas season. And then probably take a second look. But I probably won't make any major changes until the majority of hubs are a year old or more.
That rewrite gave that Hub a $35 day. I didn't think much of rewriting Hubs until that happened. I don't do a lot of it, but when I've got a Hub that I know somehow touches something that I know people are into, but the Hub just doesn't seem to be doing it, I give it a think.
And I like to change my avatar once a year, sometime in the neighborhood of when my HP anniversary happens on July 31st.
Thanks, badcompany. BTW, that was the most Angie's ever earned me, as ususlly entertainment Hubs are only really good for traffic.
Nelly: that image of me was drawn live at a rather unusual party I went to right before I moved away from San Francisco. I think it really looks like me, but what's funny is when you see the full size, he didn't draw any of my tattoos...LOL...
Yes is possible for a hub to have 0 traffic but you can improve this situation.(If you really care about that hub). I remember that i work a lot for a hub about a ebook and i get in top 3 for the name of that ebook and also i make sales.. The key ...i think is traffic! Good Luck to all of you !
