    Article hits dropping?

    When I started hubbing 7 weeks ago I got a lot of hits, now they have dropped to a trickle.  Is this a way for HubPages to sucker you in, or has there been a major change within this timeframe?

    There was a panda update by Google that could have changed things. However, I noticed you almost specialise in Philosophy so you many got a lot of hits initially too through this due to curiosity about your style and opinions.

    Hi trecords0, welcome to Hubpages!  If you go to your account and click "traffic sources," you will find that most, if not all, traffic to your hubs came from fellow hubbers.  It takes some time for our hubs to mature and get ranked by search engines.  Just keep on writing, and, if possible, write on different subjects.  Use Google Adwords to help you maximize SEO.  Read and participate in the forums, so more hubbers could get to know you and you can learn from other hubbers' experiences.  If you have a Facebook and Twitter accounts, promote your hubs.  I don't do much linking myself, but linking is a great way to get more traffic to your hubs.  Link your hubs of the same subject matter together.. visitors who got interested reading one of your hubs might be interested to read more of your writings.

    It's normal to be exasperated during the early days.. after 10 months here on Hubpages, I still get exasperated and so do others.  Be a little more patient.  Hubpages is really a great site, very friendly community.  With the Hubpages Ad Program, we get to earn extra money on top of Adsense and Amazon.. and soon from eBay too.

    Again, welcome to Hubpages and I wish you all the best... Cheers!
