    What are the simple tricks to boost dwindling traffic to hubs?

    I have been here three weeks and saw my hubs traffic rise incredibly in the first two weeks, but now, most if not all hubs are having the blue arrow sad... What can I do to counter this

    Do you have facebook? Social networks are a great way of advertising your hubs. Google+, Facebook, Stumble upon, Pinterest, and also twiiter. Good luck!!

      Hello friend? Currently am using Facebook and most of my traffic comes from there but of late it has dwindled.I tried twitter, nothing, no followers there sad. I think I'll give Pinterest and stumble upon a try as well.Thank you so much friend :-)

    I have found that taking part in answering questions and posting links in your news feeds here on Hub Pages will also stimulate traffic to your hubs. Good luck. From Safiq Ali Patel.

    Don;t worry do what the other hubbers have suggested in response to your question and continue to publish fresh content.  In due time you will see more traffic.

    You are very new to HP and need to understand that it takes time for hubs to get indexed on Google and other search engines.  There are no simple tricks to help you get views, what you really must do is write about what people want to read and do a good job of it, which means writing well organized, grammatically correct hubs, inserting photos and appropriate links, etc.

    Don't count on social networking to get views...count on Google.  That's where the great majority of the world's population will find you and that's where you'll make money.

    Read everything you can in the learning center and read tutorial hubs from people who have been here for awhile and are successful.

    Rome wasn't built in a day, and it takes a long time to build up your portfolio and your fan base.

    Good luck and welcome to HP.

    Update, update, update. You can't really write a piece of content and leave it there to spend the rest of its life receiving hundreds or thousands of hits a day; the content needs to be refreshed and updated, as Google loves fresh and updated content. You will always get more paying customers through search engines than you will on Hubpages, and bear in mind therefore that advertising internally to Hubpages users is nice (when seeing comments and increased traffic) but it doesn't help to support your HP income.

    Whenever you update a hub with real fresh content (not just by hitting edit and then publish, but by actually adding content to the hub) send it out on Twitter, post it to Facebook and Google+ or Pin it, if you have Pinterest. These things will all help to get you moving forward.

    You will also want to work on building good, proper backlinks and practicing good SEO. I'm terrible at this last as keyword research has proven an elusive subject to me, but there are Internet resources for you to learn from; maybe you'll pick something up that I have not or that I don't understand.

    Updating is important but so are your efforts outside of HP as JThomp has said. Social media is a good way to boost traffic and making sure you have a decent percentage of keywords within each hub will bring more traffic to your hubs from search engine users around the world.

    Nothing happens overnight. The top hubbers who earn several hundred to several thousand a month have been working diligently for at least a couple of years at this. It's possible that you traffic might have risen because you are a fairly new hubber and other hubbers were checking you out. You may still benefit from this for several more weeks, only time will tell.

    It's great that you're here and are working actively to maintain interest in your hubs. I will definitely check you out too!
