First it increases and then it decreases and if I am lucky the cycle just keeps repeating...
A couple of my oldest hubs have pretty steady traffic, even though I did next to nothing to promote them until recently. After a site ripens for a while it seems to gain favor with Google if it's relevant to search terms for the topic.
With my newer ones, they get little surges and seem to need frequent rounds of publicizing to keep views... pretty small traffic, so far. I run all my updates through pingler.com, Twitter and Facebook and I'm linking all the hubs on Blogger.
I think one of the keys to maintaining traffic is to write evergreen topics -- subjects people will still want to read about a few years from now. I don't stick to that rule -- lately I did an experiment on a couple of topics that fascinate me. Made me happy that they're reaching readers, but I doubt those hubs will maintain traffic as well as topics for a wider audience do. So far, I haven't had hubs that increase substantially in traffic. They seem to get the most interest right at the beginning and then taper off. Steady traffic adds up over time, though.
I'll look forward to responses from some of the more active Hubbers. I've taken a couple of extended breaks since I started here three years ago. There are many intelligent and helpful people writing here. Welcome to HubPages!
Read this hub, I didn't write it but found the info on Yahoo groups has increased my traffic a great deal!

It's totally variable. Some days everything is red arrows, some days all blue, and some days completely mixed.
It varies from hub to hub and over time, but also based on previous traffic to the hub. A popular hub might have an increasing traffic symbol next to it in your account page, for example, then a decreased symbol next to it a week later, yet is still getting more page views than one that doesn't have any symbol at all. This is because based on previous traffic that it's had, it logically is dropping, but it still might have more views than one that has stayed stable for some time.

This has got to be some sort of joke. This site is not an easy place to make a fast buck. I knew that when I started. I then did the apprenticeship. It hasn't done me one iota of good. I have written well over 70 hubs,...

I have no idea what happened, but a ton of my hubs just got double red flags! My traffic went from a couple thousand views daily to nearly 10,000 overnight!!This is insane! Has this happened to anyone else?

I joined HubPages about 1 year ago and I have only written 13 hubs. Out of these 13 only 2 hubs are getting good traffic. That's why I deleted 11 hubs and left these 2 hubs on here. I'm not sure if I should go on with...
