    Is it advisable to go a week without publishing a Hub?

    I joined HubPages in March and I have published a Hub every week since except for one time. I don't want to publish a subpar Hub just to do it. I have a lot of ideas for Hubs but I don't feel inspired this week to write one. But I want to keep my page views up. Can I do this by Forums, Answers and comments?

    I only have a handful of hubs up so I'm certainly not an expert on hubpages and I publish at completely random times (sometimes going weeks or even months without bothering to write any hubs) and I've noticed my traffic and earnings stay pretty much the same. I do however log on almost every day and check out the new hubs that have been published and comment on stuff I like so that is probably why my traffic stays consistent. But if someone didn't do *anything* on hubpages for a week I don't know how that would turn out.

      Thanks Kristie.  I am going to continue answering questions and commenting on Hubs.

      Agreed kryisty.  Some months went by me without writing, and if it was money I wanted I failed.  I failed even more for not even tuning in just to see what is on the minds of my fellow hubbers.  Tuning in is more important than chiming in.

    It is possible and I sadly don't publish hubs as often as I would like. It shows on your account when you publish a hub. However, it is possible to keep up your views by using forums, answers and comments. Mainly I just publish hubs and answers.

    If you are writing hubs that answer commonly searched for questions, then most of your views should come from search engines and your hubs will get traffic regardless of how frequently you publish new hubs. People go for months without posting a single thing on HP and they receive plenty daily views on their hubs. There are some users here who haven't published anything since last year and they make hundreds of dollars per month on a just a few hubs. (I wish I knew their secret!)

    However, if most of your views seem to come from within Hubpages, then you will have to publish regularly to get a steady stream of traffic from internal users.  This is not a wise strategy since you don't make much money when the only people who see your hubs are other users here. 

    Learn how to create hubs that appear on the first page of search results so that you don't have to force yourself to publish weekly in order to keep your views up.

      Thanks for the advice. It makes a lot of sense

      I am a newbie and have edited my first article several times.  Before the editing, I quickly applied to Add Sense and Google and was not approved.  Can you give me some tips?

    You don'[t need to write new hubs to keep up the views. You can go back to old hubs and update them with new information, correct spelling and grammar errors (always amazed that I can find some after I thought I'd proofread so carefully), perhaps answer a comment or two you neglected previously, tweak a heading title, change pictures, etc. All of these spell "new content" to the SEs.

    Ultimately you want to be getting views from organic traffic via SEs. Most hubs get a little boost at first from other hubbers or whatever you did to promote it through social media, etc. If your views are tailing off over the long haul then you're probably not getting much SE traffic. So, you need to revise the existing ones or write new ones with SEO principles in mind.

    Of course you can skip a week now and then. If you set too rigorous a schedule you will burn out. Give yourself a break now and then.
