    What  was the topic of your most popular hub?

    As a new hubber I am seeing odd results for my hubs. The ones that I felt would be the most popular were not and the ones that I thought would be light traffic hubs---had great numbers. I am looking to maximize my views and my money!!

    No kidding. I wrote an essay called "Imperial Bureaucrats: Origins of Nobility" that I now think is rubbish and I would like to take it down. But it has six times as many views as my essay with the second-highest amount of traffic. I don't know who's looking at that essay, but it's my most popular for whatever reason.

      I am glad to see that it is not just me! You must have a fan somewhere who has shared it with everyone that they know!

    My most popular hub to date had to do with my eBay niche. It's entitled, Selling Old Collectible Vintage Art Print Ads on eBay. One of the HP tools suggested I add certain key words to the title, which was originally much shorter and, in my opinion, better...but writer's prerogative isn't always synonymous with the high tech magic of key words. Honestly, I don't use that tool anymore. Even though my hubs aren't doing as well as those of other Hubbers, what comes from my heart and head is more important to me than trying to comply with some computerized algorithmic structure. I'm old school that way, and I believe in the karma of organic versus hyper-fertilized growth.

      I definitely agree in allowing topics to come organically! I tried the tool once but ended up sticking with my title!! Thanks for the affirmation of author vs. technology!

    At the moment I get most traffic for a Bird Poems hub, which is pleasing and surprising. As most of my hubs are 'impractical' I'm really inspired when I get visits to what are my own creations or studies. 

    I like to experiment. Back in the summer I wrote a few sporty hubs for an international event here in Europe and those hubs did quite well, catching the surf as they say. But now I've settled down and want to concentrate on evergreen subject titles.

    I do not know that much about keywords. I tend to just write, put simple links on and hope for the best. Not very scientific I admit, but it suits me at this moment in time.

    I was about to answer one particular hub, but I thought I'd better take another look -and it has changed! Though I'll give two answers cause there were two ways to look at it:

    Currently scoring highest:
    "Addition: The Beginning" - the first page or 2 of a new story/book I'm working on about an addict.  Hmmm, I'm quite happy about that really! (This one had been a hub about Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass until today!)

    Most views:
    "Biblical Homosexuality 2 - Leviticus The Moral Code" - which makes sense, given the conversations I tend to have with people who have biblical reasons for their homophobia, or...to use a less "distasteful' word - dislike for homosexuals.

      That is great to see that you are proud of your hubs and that they are of a "deeper" content. I am going to give them a read! Thanks
