Does Hubpage traffic generally increase over time?

    Does Hubpage traffic generally increase over time?

    Assuming that your hub is pretty informative, fun to read, and basically a good page, does traffic generally increase as time goes on.  Obviously traffic won't keep increasing for years, but how long does it generally take until hubs reach their maximum traffic potential?  Two weeks? Two months?

    Just looking for some experienced hubbers that have noticed trends.

    A while ago, HubPages itself said that it can take a Hub up to three years to reach its full potential.

      I suppose that could make sense.. hmm do you notice older hubs are usually the ones that end up getting the most traffic?

    I think this is true. I am focusing on revamping underperforming hubs or just eliminating them if they can not be fixed.

    My traffic increased after i hit 90 hubs in 3 years. Then i joined Hub challenge, my traffic maintain the same rate all the time.

    My experience has been that a good quality evergreen hub generally takes 4 - 6 months to get traction in the search results and about a year to start reaching its full potential. (If it hasn't done anything much in 5 months then I'll start reworking it).

    Of course it's going to depend on the topic, how much competition there is, whether you're going for a phrase with a lot of "fresh" results (in general I'd avoid these), what other websites link to you and what the traffic potential of the main keyphrase is to begin with. A great hub that focuses on a phrase with only 100 searches per month is unlikely to ever a great deal of traffic.

    There are *a lot* of variables, but when it comes to writing online patience is a character trait you will need in bucket loads.
