Have you written a hub that really had a great hit at first then started to suddenly become idle?
I had one that really looked promising at first, about 20 days or so, but suddenly experienced stagnation after. Well, probably it was because it was a news type of article.
Anyway, I just want to see if you experienced something like this. And under what category have your written them/it (for us to identify some possible categories to avoid).
Well, chances are those views were from the hub hopper views. So it can sometimes inflate the views of a new hub as it goes through the hopper. Depending on what type of "news" story you are writing about, we are in the age of instant news and so you may be competing with top news outlets that rank higher in the search engines. Or it could be that it's now yesterday's news.
There are also hubs that are seasonal. For example, right now my Christmas hubs traffic is rising everyday, as it gets closer to Christmas. But they typically die off right after.
Yes. Some of them were seasonal things, like Halloween or Christmas articles that get a lot of hits around that time of year and kind of go dormant the rest of the year.
Others are evergreen content that are more cyclical. They go hot and cold in cycles.
A few are probably special interest type articles, meaning they're only of interest to certain groups of people. Those I either have to update periodically or remarket from time to time, which keeps the interest a "little" more steady.
I've written several hubs that are seasonal or geared to a holiday or special event. These hubs have done well for a while, but when the holiday passes, they die out. I do try to update them before the holiday rolls around again as many are still valid the next year. As someone else said, sometimes a hub gets a large number of views from fellow hubbers when it first comes out, but never really catches on in the search engines. That could mean it needs better SEO, a better title, a better summary or better content. Or it could mean that the topic just isn't of interest to the general public. We all have our ups and downs! Sometimes it's worth rewriting a hub, other times not.

If a hub is not featured does that mean that it doesn't get any search engine traffic from Google or other search engines?

First a disclaimer is in order.I broke the evergreen rule with this approach. I knew it going in and did it anyway. What the hell, sometimes rules are made to be broken. Sometimes a gamble pays off, often it doesn't. I do live in Las Vegas though so it is in my blood! Hubs should be on evergreen...

I thought if a hubpage was listed in Google search it was featured. But apparently that is not the truth. I guess I will keep the hubs up and run my own check on them.

I hear the phrase, "mature a hub," a lot. What actually happens when a hub matures? I know people say that after a hub has matured (around six months) it starts to do much better. But what actually happens when a hub matures? Thanks!
