Hi... I have been writing here for about a month and realize that there is a lot to learn... I've been doing as much reading on here as I can.
I wrote what I considered to be a half decent hub on a topic that there surprisingly doesn't seem to be much information about on the internet. It's been published for 9 days and is indexed in google... However, I have received absolutely ZERO traffic on it even though I've done a bit of backlinking.
Can someone please tell me what's wrong with it? Under HubMetrics, it apparently has a lot of revenue potential but that means nothing if no one looks at it!

Thank you very much.
Hi PurpleOne, I think your Hub is good. Only problem I can see would be way too many tags. Think of tags as describing your Hub. I would list them by industry - Tourism, activity-Travel, vacations, get away, cost- cheap? (no idea), etc. Keep your tags focused and not in the 100's. Maybe add a humorous video? otherwise, looks great
Thank you. I guess I don't really understand tags and have done a tiny bit of reading on them but it seems like there are conflicting views. I've read that the more tags you have on your hub, the better (and to think of tags as search terms that people might type into google). I've also heard like what you said... to not use that many tags and to keep the list of tags short and to the point. Needless to say, I am a bit confused.
The first bit - the more tags you have, the better - is wrong. You can have too many tags. Don't accept every tag that HubPages suggests - the suggestions just pick up on words you've used in your Hub, they're not picked scientifically.
The second bit - think of tags as search terms people might type into Google - is right. What will people type into Google if they're considering a European holiday, or a bus trip? There's not much point in including vague or general tags, keep them specific.
As long as you FOCUS your tags then traffic and advertisers will come along if you use Google Keyword tool then you can also get more tag and Hub ideas

I am major curious about the answer to this mystery.... just how much traffic are those Hubs who make it to the HOT HUBS actually receiving? I know that most likely nobody is going to give this up with specific...

On a Hub of around 600 words, how many tags are appropriate? Also, if you use multiple text capsules, does the word count in all capsules count as the total word count for that Hub?

Quite a while ago we used to add our own tags to each hub. For example if we wrote about shoes we would use the tag box for words such as: shoes, trainers, new shoes, fashion shoes. And so on. Reading various articles...
