You must learn the tricks of the trade grasshopper . . . RSS feeds help, posting on social media sites such as Facebook, Bolt It, StumbleUpon.com, etc., using Google Adwords, repeating the title in the content of your article helps.
Writing quality hubs really helps, learn about SEO (search engine optimization), hops some hubs and leave some clever comments.
This seems to be the 64 million dollar question. I was really doing well up until the beginning of July averaging 300 views per day. Then,like overnight, my views were cut in half, and on some days now like today and on most weekends I am struggling just to get 200 views. I have been sharing hubs and commenting on other hubbers works, and doing a little posting on social media sites like Facebook and Pinterest. In addition to this, I have been revising a lot of the older hubs and adding more pictures. This has helped a little, but at times I feel like I'm fishing and only getting nibbles instead of the big fish that I want to reel in. I understand that I have to improve my use of keywords and find a topic to write on which people will want to read.
Well, I usually promote my hubs in social media platforms such as my own blog, Facebook, Twitter and etc.
Also, I add up some dash of SEO thing. Although, I'm not really an expert on it, I still try to integrate the said tips. You may try reading basic tips here: http://moneybasket-incomeopportunities. … o-and.html
I also engage in web forums, so there are times when my views doubles.
When you first write a hub, it gets a short burst of internal traffic. That slowly drops off, then over the next few weeks and months you should start seeing search engine traffic. That traffic increases with time (staff say it can take up to 4 years to reach its maximum!)
For that reason, avoid writing in "saturated" topics, make sure they're evergreen (information that won't age) and look for interesting small niches that people will Google.
I like using content curation sites like snip.it or scoop.it. I think the advice here about not writing in saturated topics is good. Stumbleupon works well for me too sometimes.
There is a lot reposting onto sites like reddit, will give you a short term boost, though over the long term, search engine optimization is what really separates the men from the boys. You have to also be willing to read other people's writing, and comment on it to get your name out there.
I know the feeling. It's seems hard to get allot of traffic to your hubs, but I just think that I've only been doing this for about two months. I hope that my hubs will become like wine, and get better over time. I have three blogs, face book, and twitter. Most of my traffic still comes from hub pages, but I hope that the older my hubs get the more traffic they will get from Google, Bing, etc. Until then I try to put out at least three to four hubs a week, and finding things that others are not writing about.
Great question! There are a number of things you can do. it is best to do all of them, because the steps that create readership work like a machine. Get all the parts moving, and you will succeed. I took a few minutes to read about five of your hubs, so my suggests are specific for you, as well as generally good for all of us. And let me take a moment to plug the Apprenticeship Program - I'm learning all this stuff in that program.
1. Write better and better hubs. Read Sports hubs and Haiku hubs that are top-notch. (For Haiku, check out KrisL.) Use the formats and keep improving as a writer. Start to include other capsules. For example, your Canada Fun Facts hub would be great with a map, and then a poll or a quiz.
2. Write related hubs. How about a hub on each of the 10 fun facts about Canada?
3. Get connected all over HubPages. Comment on other people's hubs, ask and answer questions, hop hubs, follow hubbers.
4. Do the same on social media. Get involved in Twitter, Facebook, and Pinterest. And, as a small part of your time there, share your hubs, and other great hubs, on those platforms.
5. Learn to pick topics that are of interest to people, using search terms people are likely to put into Google.

Hi,I've signed up and am ready to start making hubs in my specialised subject, but I was wondering what the earning potential of hubbig (if that's a word) actually is. I realise it all depends on how attractive your pages are and how good they are etc, but what are people actually earning? I am not...

I have had the lowest earnings from since the time I first made anything on HubPages as of late. I took a look through the forum and couldn't find reference to others having the same problem. What I'd usually make in one day, all of a sudden it is taking me a week to make. Is anyone else getting...

Hi Anybody..I need help.I am probably am asking stupid questions. If you feel that I am, just ignore me. I've been here since late June, and thanks to all the advice I took early on, I have a good hubber score (ranges 95-100).I have 14 hubs,(or 15..can't remember..)and I like what I have done...

I've been on here for a few years, and I guess I never really understood the point of these scores. They don't seem to provide any real value to the user and I can't convince myself that they add value because they fluctuate so much.What's the point? Am I supposed to use these scores to tell me...

Hi everyone,I have started a blog few months back. I couldnot get much views. Is there any way to increase the traffic?
by Tim Mitchell 3 years ago
Having been on HP now for more than four years while kinda' inactive for the last two I am looking more closely. I have cleaned up my portfolio from over 100 hubs with low views to now about 10. I had a lean of writing more for self than as a business venture seeking a niche. Now, I am looking more...
