    What is the biggest problem you face on Hubpages?

    My biggest problem is that I don't actually earn any money here!  I do everything they say to do, almost all my stuff is featured and monetized, over 1000 words, laid out nicely with capsules and pics to break it up, with 1-2 videos, socially shared and backlinked, SEO'd and keyworded, and nada... I still have very low traffic.  It's been a year and no mula more than $4 a month.  I have started shifting my energy and time elsewhere.  After almost 100 hubs, it's just sad!  I wasn't expecting a fortune but at least something for all my hard work.

      Really sad to hear that. That's a problem with most of us.
      thanks for the comment.

      Same here. I guess my choices in "niche topics" aren't big traffic draws, or I simply suck at SEO. Either way, I stopped worrying about making $$ on this site a long time ago. Now I just post stuff for fun whenever the mood strikes me.

    Insufficient time. I've already reached payout in the past two months and I'm eager to improve my account's performance. However, I simply don't have enough time since I am currently preoccupied with work and home responsibilities.

    Very low views. I have no clue about SEO or keyword or any of that and really could care less about learning it.  So my views are low and I think it will likely stay that way.

    I can't say I face a problem on Hubpages -- but my thinking about it is obviously not the norm. I enjoy writing, love the community on Hubpages and put all the time I can into it -- but not for money (and yes, I need it just like everyone else these days). I have received payout and was grateful -- and will be when it happens again but I don't work/strive in that direction. I'm certainly not sophisticated when it comes to SEO, linking, etc., etc. and in fact don't pursue any of that (although I probably should). I consider my writing on Hubpages a personal pleasure for me -- and hopefully at least a few of my readers -- and the rest of it? If it makes money -- fine -- and if it doesn't I'll remain a very happy, old, writer.

    Finding links that are declared phishing when they have absconded with a perfectly good link. Just spent four days looking for one of those darn things and finally found it, and I swear I had already checked that link.

    The biggest problem I face on Hubpages are the low views and the challenge of generating more traffic as I publish more entries.
