How do you make a good hub that gets thousands of views?
I really want to start making more money on this site, and so far most of my hubs have around 30 views of all time. Anybody got some good pointers to making a hub that can get thousands of views and get me money. Ex. like what I should ad or how to design the hub.
Building traffic takes time. Look at the best writers (not hot) and see what they are doing. Read missolive's advice on different ways to increase traffic. I glimpsed some of your hubs and you appear to be writing for a younger audience. Promote your hubs and what you write about via social media and group the hub topics together.
For me it's about content. I'm approaching the 100,000 views mark. I write "how-to" articles about swimming pool care and maintenance. Last summer I was getting thousands of hits, sometimes over a thousand a day. Slow right now but will pick up again in a month or so. Seems like people want to save money so my articles are valuable and viewed frequently. One thing I learned that skyrocketed my traffic is changing my titles. I looked at your hubs. Instead of "Caring for a Betta Fish" try "How to care for a Betta fish" Almost all of my articles start with "How to" It made a world of difference. Hope you do well
I agree- get your titles right and base the content on that and you're giving yourself the best chance with search engines
Thanks I will try to change some names to "how-tos" and write some more articles.
Short answer: Keyword research and SEO. These are two very complex topics, and it would take days to explain everything, but here are a few quick things to keep in mind.
Let's assume for the sake of argument that you're writing an article about "How to Build Blue Widgets."
First, you need to write about things that people search for. Some topics have higher search volume than others. If you're on the first page of Google for "How to Build Blue Widgets", but one person searches for that every month, you won't get any visits. But if you're on the second page of Google and the query gets 10,000 views a month, then you'll get some visits.
Second, it helps to write about topics that don't have a lot of competition. If you searched for "How to Build Blue Widgets" and got millions of results, there's a lot of competition. If there are tens of thousands, there are less. Less competition means it'll be easier for a well written article to float to the top of the SERPs.
Third, you need good on page SEO. This means that the target phrase ("How to Build Blue Widgets") plus related phrases ("Blue Widgets," "How to Build Widgets," "Great Blue Widgets," etc) should appear throughout your article. This is one way Google assesses whether your article is relevant to a search query. If your title is "How to Build Blue Widgets," but none of those words appear in your article, you probably won't rank very highly. Writing longer hubs (750 to 1,000 words) will help you do this more naturally.
Fourth, you need links to your article (and your subdomain). This is more important for high competition articles. The simplest thing you can do here is to participate in the community - answer questions, post in the forum, and write new hubs. Each of these can create links between other domains and your subdomain. Over time, this will help Google see your subdomain and your hubs as more authoritative.
In short, write about things that people search for, write about things where there's not a lot of competition, write longer hubs that utilize your target keywords, and get links back to your hubs and/or your profile.

One of my game guides gets 100 views a week, even though the game came out in 2014. When I wrote it, I didn't really think it'd do as well as it is. Have any of your articles done surprisingly well?
