At the bottom of each hub, create a list of your other hubs that you think the reader may like to read. Make the header the link.
I always use my social accounts to advertise my hubs (Piniterest, Twitter, Facebook and Linkedin.) Also, sites like Reddit let you put up posts as well.
Choose a title for a hub which is likely to be searched for. Unfortunately popular titles face lots of competition (e.g.if you search for "How to make lots of money", you gets 163 million results!) so use Adwords to choose titles/keywords with the highest search rate but lowest competition.
Write content which is rich in keywords.
Create lots of backlinks. You can tell everyone about your hub on Twitter, Facebook, Redgage (If you have the patience!), Google+ and any other social networks. Pin hubs to Pinterest also.
Some forums allow you to post a signature at the end of each post you make. This could be a link to a hub or your profile on this site.
Add relevant references to your hub from other hubs so that visitors will stick around.
If you have a website, other sites may allow you to add a link on their site if you create a reciprocal link to their site on your own site. Point this link to your hub or profile here.
Learn how to write for Google - your title is THE most important part of your hub. Learn how to tease visual traffic and summarise your content to Google at the same time.
Add Made For Pinterest images.
Check search traffic keywords for ideas on new things to write about.
Ignore your hubs and go write new ones. Or promote the ones that DO WELL. Promoting a hub which is never going to get serious traffic anyway is a waste of time. If it doesn't work, leave it. Work on increasing traffic to hubs that are already getting it.
I have found that these are some good ways to increase hub traffic: one, tweak and update old hubs; two, add appropriate videos to hubs; three, share other hubbers hubs and they will share yours with followers and on social media; four, link to other related hubs of yours or others; and five, write good quality hubs with titles which many people are searching for. Good luck in trying these ways!
The best ways to drive traffic I've found is: 1) writing Hubs that are done with proper SEO to show up in search engines (even then, it can be a challenge with all the competition) and 2) to create backlinks in various places like comments sections for articles and forums. Occasionally, some of the backlinks will go viral, and at other times they will drive traffic for a long time, as people come across them.
I also think it's important to make sure you don't do certain things which can result in getting less traffic...
So for example never engage in activities that involve paying for traffic, links or social networking hits. Google will pull your pants down and spank you very hard if it catches you doing something like that!
And of course don't go crazy with how you use keywords. It is a seriously fine art using keywords effectively. My advice for all things search engine optimization related is to follow a good blog like seomoz or any other top site.
Read and learn from the professionals when it comes to increasing traffic. It can seem daunting at first because of the detail those kind of writers go into, but eventually you'll pick up more than just the basics of SEO and getting more traffic.
My simple answer, social media! I could write an article on here and drive 1,000 people here to read it within an hour! Ofcourse I have a few tricks up my sleeve, but social networking can get you there. I don't typically care to drive traffic here since I have my own websites, which I'd rather drive traffic there.
If you produce content and share it on social networks like Google+, your viewers will do all the marketing for you. I had one article that got shared close to 800 times in 24 hours last week, and 3,000 people viewed it. So the real question is, are you creating content that people want, and do you have a social presence that reflects your knowledge? Its a lot more difficult than it sounds. I spent 40,000 hours in 8 years doing this stuff. Either way, once you understand social networks and how people interact with content online, you can effectively force traffic anywhere you want it too, in turn you gain control over the internet itself. Knowledge is king!
1- Regular updating of your hubs.
2- Promoting them using social bookmarking sites.
3- Hub containing atleast 700 ( correct ) words
4- Having a attractive title for your hub. ( Use Google Keyword tool)

I've noticed that there is at least one post claiming to have gained a significant amount of traffic this week, but for me, my traffic has dropped by 50%. One hub, which at its height was getting over 4k hits a day, is now down to 500 hits daily, and every other hub on my account has dropped...

Should you update a Hub when you see its traffic waning, even before it's gone Idle? Will this keep it from going Idle and increase traffic to it?

Is there a way within Hub Pages to see which articles are only receiving Hub traffic? I try to beef up the low performing Hubs but it would help to know which Hubs have no outside traffic. Or is the score of the Hub sufficient to monitor the lack of Google traffic?
