    Does your hub traffic fluctuate between hubs?

    This is in reference to search engine traffic. All though I am on page 1 of Google on 60-70% of my Hubs, it seems to me that some days I receive a lot less search engine traffic than others.

    Also it seems that Hubs that arn't doing well one day do great the next. Those that have done great then see a loss. In other words the traffic I get to my hubs oscilates between the hubs. Is this normal? Why do you think this is?

    I am not sure but on weekends, people are more like to go out and are less on their computer, so you might see a loss in traffic in some hubs. If you write about hubs, which are often read by students, then maybe when they have an exam about a particual topic you already wrote about, this hubs might get more traffic. Sometimes, people just don't always look for the stuff you wrote about and the other day many do coincidentally. I hope I could help you with my thoughts wink.

    I just read some of your articles and I must say you are doing very well! Keep it up. I think key words are important, I think TIME is very important, and I also think that if 60-70% of your hubs are on page 1 of an google search then you are way ahead of schedule, and you should be very proud! Never lose your passion for writing and family and your success is sure to grow!

    Mine definetely does but since I try to keep my topics along the same lines and i do a lot facebook promoting with my friends and groups, i get a lot of traffic from there. I've been on vacation for a week now and I have seen a dramatic drop in my hub views.

    You have to remember that just because you appear on page 1 of google if you type in the exact title of your hub, it doesn't mean you're page 1 for everybody who searches for articles about that topic. I searched for mountain survival tips, which is the subject of one of your hubs and you weren't on page 1. I tried water shortage crisis and desert survival tips and you weren't page 1 for those either.
    I didn't search for the others as a lot of those appeared very specific, I could type in the journal of fate part four and no doubt you would appear on page 1, but it's not the sort of thing that people would type into a search engine if they weren't specifically looking for that hub.
    It's not easy but you need to think about what people will type in to a search engine and then try and name your hub that, to try and catch the most traffic.

      I actually made a hub on this and I show what hubs are on page 1 and the non-specific titles I type in. The few hubs you did search are not even indexed by google. You might be interested in … gle-Rating

    Yes. Not sure why, but as long as it's within a reasonable range of normal, I could care less. Ex: there are many times when I don't write a hub for ages for many, many reasons. Often all I do is read. I usually comment on hubs, but I may not even do that--so I expect fluctuation, even tho' I really haven't studied the reasons!
