Getting fed up with hubpages, why so few views?
I have been writing niche and super niche subjects about non fiction. Why have I been getting so few views? Only 17 views on 52 hubs in the last 24 hours. How can that possibly be? I have plenty of back links and use concise, descriptive summaries. Information is all valid, original content. Pictures and video are all custom and unique with links to AND from youtube.
I expected at the very least 1-2 views per day out of most niche and super niche hubs. I expected slow and steady consistent views. If I wanted to write about news/trending stuff why would I even write on hubpages?
Did you do keyword research to see how many people searched for the specific keywords that you're targeting? If you don't do keyword research (using something like the Google Adwords keyword tool), then you're essentially throwing darts at a dartboard... blind.
Most of my hubs get one or two views a day, some get a handful, and a couple get double digits. If you're getting zero views, then either the keyword you've targeted is low volume (no one is looking for it) or there's way too much competition and you're not ranking high.
I remember when we used to be able to enter keywords. Now it seems it is just hit or miss with your title and summary. I don't know how I can optimize something like The French Chef Omelette Pan any better but I understand it sure is tough
Longer titles are better, because you capture more words might type in their query. Also, that's a very low volume query (12 searches per month for "french chef omelette pan"). So no amount of optimizing will get a ton of traffic...
Thanks for letting me know. I am still learning about SEO as you can tell. I have heard so many damn different things. So many people I have seen and talked to say that a concise and engaging title is ideal for SEO. THANKS for your help!
I'm not proud but I had 4 views today. Wow.....I definitely need to find a day job...this isn't doing much. Seriously, I am not here to make money but I do wonder why one week there are tons of views then then next week nothing.
You're pretty new here. Sometimes it takes six months before Google has figured out how wonderful or how poor your content is. There have been a lot of instances for me where something I published hardly got any attention at all until six months later.
damn, well i guess you are right. The main reason I am writing here is to 1) gain experience and 2) Don't they advertise? i thought that was one of the benefits to posting here? You get the message out and people see what you are writing.
It's unpredictable bro, I never judge any of it, and just hope and pray for the best after hitting the infamous publish button here on hubpages. Actually over time, you will see an interesting progression to many of those types of hubs.
I'm currently working on a non-fiction novel here, and its getting good traffic, maybe I titled it good, maybe its due to all of the sum of my social interactions and the likes here on Hubpages or a combination of it all. Who knows bro! (Approaching 130,000 views and still going strong, an average of 7,300+ views per month)
Either way after doing all the technical things necessary to prepare a hub for its maximum potential of taking digital lift off, all you can do is allow time to play in your favor and keep on plugging away without looking back.
That is how I'm able to keep up my momentum here without any worries, and with a full steam ahead approach as well, because nothing is ever promised, it takes intensity, and a massive amount of determination to look beyond the stats and all here today.

Oh and remaining to have a positive outlook on it all helps a great deal as well, and I hope this answer suffices. Great question though.
I see that you follow one person. Maybe that is the answer to your problem! in order to be successful and enjoy your time on HP you have to develop a presence. It isn't just about spewing out articles, but interacting with others in a meaningful and helpful way. I know nothing about SEO, but it really isn't the most important thing!
i was feeling the same way. what i decided to do was change the title to my hubs and i did this by using google adword tool it seemed to help drive alot more traffic to my hubs. try this and see if it works for you. i also added links to things people can purchase on amazon in my hubs. hope this helps. happy hubbing
While I don't have an answer, I want to thank you for this question. I have learned much by reading this thread. Keep up the good work,

I've read a lot about the importance of doing keyword research, but then you also get the impression that to really do that research properly can take a long time unless you get lucky early on or really know what you...

This has got to be some sort of joke. This site is not an easy place to make a fast buck. I knew that when I started. I then did the apprenticeship. It hasn't done me one iota of good. I have written well over 70 hubs,...
