With time, well written hubs will gain traffic from search engines?
I see that being mentioned here and there. Does that happen because of magic? prayers? is there another explanation? Or am I misunderstanding something?
Magic and prayers might help, but if something is well put together and informative, more people are likely to share it, comment on it and read it. The more people that read it, the higher it goes in the search engine ratings.
If it has a subject that people are searching for, it will get views, links and mentions that push it upwards-- but it takes time for those statistics to accumulate.
Badly written hubs are ignored or unpublished.
It's no magic at all. It's all based on search engine algorithms, which take time to accumulate statistical data. That data is based on results of your traffic. If people click away real fast, this shows the hub may have little value. If readers stay on the page a long time, then they are probably reading to the end. This shows search engines that you may have something of value and well written. So they will send more traffic over time.
Whilst the search engines do need some time to evaluate a new hub, you also need to do some of your own "online marketing" this is not at all difficult. What you can do to help:-
Post to your hub from forums
Use your own blog or blogs to mention your hubs
Like with your facebook account
Ask your friends to do the same.
This will all help to give you hub that little extra push

I am experiencing that there is a very small traffic to my Hubs from Hubapages. It shows just 2 to 4 pages per day. On the other hand, the traffic sent from search engines is very high. Have you experiencing same thing? Can anybody tell me how to get traffic from Hubpages to my Hubs?

I've read a lot about the importance of doing keyword research, but then you also get the impression that to really do that research properly can take a long time unless you get lucky early on or really know what you are doing. So I wonder, with some people pumping out huge amounts of hubs, are...

I think there is an urgent need to change the term "engagement" to "traffic". The reason? The new "Not Featured - engagement" feature has been in place only a few days, and already we're seeing posts on the forums from upset Hubbers.I can understand that...
