    What is the best tip you have for new hubbers to improve traffic?

    While I am by no means an expert, I think many would agree that writing titles containing a high search/low competition keyword is important.  I have only been on HP for a couple of months now, but I at least a couple of my hubs are showing up on the first page of Google searches for those keywords.

    Also, instead of writing your entire article in one capsule, consider using a new text capsule with good keyword titles for each section of your article.  These are things I have found to be successful.

    Other than good writing and title choice, advertising your hubs on social media can drive more traffic to your site.  Some of the best I have used are twitter and facebook, however, I have been hearing a lot of rumblings about the effectiveness of Pintrest lately.  maybe another Hubber could speak to that more directly. 

    Lastly, just write more articles!  Some of your articles will be more successful than others.  When one article attracts a good amount of traffic, try writing more articles along that same subject line.  Hope that helps!

      Having catchy titles sounds like a good way to draw people in.  More articles could help too, but I don't want to spread myself too thin.  Thanks!

    Keywords in your summaries and titles and being very active in the community to get your name out there.

      It seems as though keywords can be very important.  I'll try to improve mine in the future.

      I agree that high quality content is probably the best bet in getting traffic to your page.  I'm still working on finding a decent avenue to share my page through social networking.

    Writing high quality hubs is important and something many people overlook in an attempt to get Hubs out there.

    For me, the best thing I've done is use the already in place networks for my brand (dog agility training).  Agility people are heavily networked on Facebook.  I'm also getting more and more Pinterest love.  Forums relating to the topic of my hub are helpful too.

    I actually find Google to be only a side bar in my traffic.  People who do agility rarely "Google" for answers, but instead turn to other competitors.  Getting "discovered" by my target audience who then shares my work is what works best for me.  However, if my hubs aren't quality, my target audience will go to those offering better articles and information.  I strive for media rich (pictures, my own videos, tables, quizzes, polls, etc.) information-filled articles, and based on the duration of each visit, I must be doing that right. smile  I also then get naturally generated back links.  In the end, it all works together and grows.

      I really like your idea of finding a niche and sticking with it.  Networking seems to be a great way to get people to discover a page.  Thanks!
