    I'm new to HP, so maybe this is a dumb question:  page views zero for one day?

    I've posted seven hubs in the two weeks I've been a member.  My views were going up after the sixth hub, yet, when I posted my seventh hub last night, my views seem to have gone down to zero.    My account shows I've had 333 total views, but, in the last 1 day, only about 4 total.
      I have no idea how the hubs get listed with the search engines, or what (if anything) makes your rank in the search lists go higher or lower.   And does that change daily?    If my article is ranked fourth on Google's first page today, can it be ranked on page 21 tomorrow?
       If there is a tutorial here?  Thanks!

    Jeff, to start out you need to participate in the HP community. Read other hubs, make interesting comments (not just "Great Hub"!), and then others will read and comment on your hubs.
    Go to your profile page and see where your 333 views came from. I doubt any were from Google, so page 4 is really not much different than page 21. Yes, it can change that much in a day.
    The HP FAQ is really good. A lot of your questions will be answered there, and the forums are helpful too. (Just do not believe everything you read there!)

      Thanks. I have been participating in the HP community, especially in the last few days. Not to boost my views, rather, some discussions have caught my eye. Just wondering.  I posted my last Hub and my views went BOOM, to zero.

    Hi Jeff, you should use a keyword tool to help make your article titles more search friendly. The unfortunate thing about writing online is that your titles need to be informative of what your article is, you don't get to write cute/fun/interesting/clever/creative titles like you would in other types of media (i.e. magazine articles, books, etc.). Another thing that helps is writing captions for your pictures explaining what they are because sometimes your articles/hubs can come up in search results for pictures. Also, you should backlink or crosslink, or whatever it's called your hubs to one another for similar topics. This way your hub will come up on more than one page. For example I write a lot of hubs on salsa dancing related, so if I'm writing a hub on what kind of clothes you should wear for salsa, I'll also include links for what kinds of shoes and accessories you should wear, and have another section directing readers to my hubs that I wrote on how to dance well and places to go dancing. This way if readers find ONE of my hubs, they'll be informed and encouraged to visit and read my other hubs that I wrote.
