What do you do about your hubs that are getting low amounts of traffic?
And if your hubs are well written and over 1200 words (as well as nicely formatted)?
I was told not to delete them. How long does traffic take to really get to your hub? I'm assuming this is not immediate. (6 months?)
I just edited two low-traffic hubs yesterday. I tweaked the titles to make them more searchable, added text, and shortened the summaries. I can't answer the other questions but it did take my best performing hub 4 months before it started getting alot of traffic. I don't know why it's taking the others longer. I may have to do some more editing. I also do edits on the hubs that I know are about to be unfeatured due to low traffic.
Here is a traffic trick for those hubs. Go to yahoo answers. Click open questions and put in the main word that you used for your hub or what your hub is about. You might find someone who is asking just what your hub is about. Answer their question and put your link in the source spot. Do this for about 4 questions, go to your facebook page click a link for it in somewhere, and pin it up on pinterest. Voila! At the end of that day, you might not have that blue triangle there anymore.
it took me over a year to get more traffic for my low score hubs.
I would try to add more to the hub for example, pictures videos, and more content. It really depends on what the hub is, because some hubs are just not going to get anymore traffic.
Think about how people looking for that information are going to search for it. What might they type into Google? Use those phrases as subtitles throughout your text. So for example if I am doing a hub on coconut oil - I might do a search and see people are looking for the phrase "how to use coconut oil" or "where to buy coconut oil" or "health benefits of coconut oil" .. In my hub I'll do sections about all of those things - using those search phrases as subtitles for those hub sections. This makes your hubs more search engine friendly and more likely to be picked up in results.
Also, pinterest friendly graphics are an amazing tool. I design custom graphics for every hub that says what it's about and has a visually striking or appealing photo and sometimes even a teaser to get people to want to click. Sharing on Facebook, Pinterest (but not spamming!) the image will show up and intrigue people to click.
If your hubs are poor performers tweak with a good pinterest friendly image and make use of good subtitles.

I have a hub that was moved here from Squidoo in September that I haven't touched at all. But, now it's unfeatured due to lack of engagement. I thought I had four months before stuff like that happened.
