    I have 13 Hubs and have been at Hubpages for 3 monthts. When my pageviews reached about 500, traffic just disappeared. I've done some editing and linking but nothing seems to help? Any ideas?

      Try more posts on these forums I guess, I mean it must work to a degree, as I am about to look at your hubs tongue

      Also keep up to date with new and original content? If you're always posting new stuff people will be more interested.

      Yes I'm a newbie to this site tongue But hope I can help a little XD

      Check out my stuff if you like, I'll have a mosey through your page (Y)

      Have you tried using the 'links feature' that is on the hubs. It is the one where you click and it provides an easy route to linking to stumbleupon /your blog/ or ?. It took me ages to spot that and figure out what to do. This brings traffic into your hubs in addition to the traffic from search engines. I think it is called back links but I am still learning about HubPages.

      work on keywords  (search engine optimization)and there are lots of hubbers here who wrote the things you need to do so that you can earn here...

      but you can write about things which you have expertise on....
      and articles about topics which you think will earn

    Not sure why you are not registering traffic but I did take a look at the Foodie hub and found that while the info was good there was too much linking and not enough info...and the 5 favs title didn't match what I saw.  Try breaking them into groups and writing a hub about each group, giving real info about the group in each hub, then add in your links.  HP is more about original writing that just linking.  Good luck and let me know if you tweak this one, I'd really like to read the info.

    That hub was kind of a fun thing. My others are more info intensive and they're still not responding (getting traffic).
    Thanks for helping everyone!

    Are you signed up for Google Analytics? If not, you should be. That might give you some clues. Have you checked your keywords in Google to see where you're ranking?

    It sounds like you might have been getting a lot of HP traffic when you were new. What you really want is search engine traffic.

      My search engine traffic has been around 40% and direct traffic is about 30%. May be the keywords I'm using are too competitive?

        From looking at your hubs, I can't tell what keywords you are targetting.  sad

        Make sure to put the keyword early in the title, as it not only is good for on page SEO (the title tag is pretty important for that) but it controls the anchor text of the links from other Hubpages, which is good for off page SEO.

          Thanks for this info. A lot of times, my keyword in my title is at the end. Now i know better. smile

    I know for myself, I've written about gardening and water feature topics.  Yes, there's recently been a drop in traffic, but I expected that.  When spring comes around, the traffic will pick up for those articles.

    I'm experimenting with some seasonal hubs right now.  It sure is hard to switch gears, especially if you're not used to hawking Christmas merchandise.

    Good luck on HubPages, JW.
