Question on hub success
I know it takes some time for articles to be "crawled" and to move up in the search engines, but approximately how much time should you allow before you feel it's time for tweaking or even a major overhaul? I've been writing articles for about 2 mos now. Some are taking off, others struggling. Should I wait a little longer before I need to be concerned?
In all honesty, there isn't any real way to gauge the time it will take your Hubs to mature. Generally, in my experience, a Hub starts getting good Google traffic after about four to six months if it's an evergreen topic. I've had a few of mine start picking up right away, but that's rare for me. I also get bursts of traffic when something happens that makes my Hubs more popular - like the Hub I wrote about royal inbreeding got a boost when the royal baby was born. That's the way it will be, though. Some will float and some will sink.
I agree with Georgie Lowery. Generally, it takes about six months before I start to see results that get my attention. Seasonal items probably won't get many views until that season arrives. But, with HubPages, it may not be "featured", so people may not find it. What I do is promote the hub on Facebook and Google+ to start generating viewers. All-in-all, there is no reliable way to determine which hub will perform and which hub will be stagnant. In any event, I would wait at least six months to make a decision on what to do with the hub.
Hi New Understanding! I also started about about 2 months ago and alot of my hubs are taking off and even in the top rank of google There is a tool on google where you can submit a URL, I think by doing this it makes the process of being in the search engines speed up. Just search "Submit URL google tool" and you should find it. All the best
I agree with Georgie. I have a few hubs started started well and are still doing well. I have others that started well and poofed out. I have others that are growing over time in popularity.

I did a little experiment with opting into the EC program for three months. To begin with,last year one of my better performing hubs become Editor's Choice. That hub was getting an average of 20o+ views per day, peak. The day after being selected as EC, the views dropped to zero. I watched it for a...

I attempt to try my best to improve my traffic and increase my earnings of Google Adsense, but it seems that I can still earn only a little per day. Do you have any tip and suggestion on how to get more traffic for your hubs at Hubpages?

I love HubPages, I feel that I have learned so much here and my confidence in writing non-fiction took such a huge leap when I was invited onto the Apprenticeship program last year. I have met some wonderful people here - both staff and other Hubbers. But as may other people have said, the idling...

If a hub is not featured does that mean that it doesn't get any search engine traffic from Google or other search engines?

I am starting to learn how to social bookmark. I've been doing it on twitter, facebook, igoogle, digg, delicious, diigo, my blogs, pingomatic and a few other places. I have only been doing it on some of these sites for the last four or five days. It probably takes a while to see...

I have three Hubs about the 2015 Sydney Siege. They were all featured. They do not attract a great deal of views as these are about a local event. However, only one of them has been demoted a few weeks ago.It now sports the " = Not Featured - Traffic" icon. But. ....
