Can't we upgrade the search here on HubPages?
I work hard on my hubs and I continue to add new content so it really frustrates me when a key work in the Hubpages search returns a hubber with a score of 69. How can a struggling writer survive here? If we cannot get our search here on HubPages rewarding those who add new content, how can Google find us?
In all fairness I know the hubber has the key term in their moniker but I have several hubs with that key term and my hubs are no where to be found.
Do you have the same problem or am I alone in this trauma?
I'm always hoping for more traffic and higher scores, but I don't know that we can upgrade how the search occurs via Google; however, there's things we can do as hubpage authors to try to boost our traffic.
1. Create a blog related to topic(s) we write about and advertise our hubpages (example: computer help blog, with links to related hubpages)
2. Create a business facebook page on same related topic, add links and write little tips, again, linking some hubpages
3. Join Linkedin and promote your yourself as well as your hubpage profile and articles, join Linkedin groups, join discussions and post some related hubpage links (but remember it must all be related to the topic)
By linking all of the above together, and increasing our internet presence, we will increase our traffic.
I have had upward spikes in my traffic when I spend more time doing all of the above. It's like that saying, if we build it (and spend lots of time building it), they will come and visit!
Hope that helps!

Since I finished the apprenticeship, and after umpteen updates and changes made on HP, my traffic has never picked up. I can't remember the last time I saw any more than 40 views a day. My average at the moment is more like 30. The articles I worked long and hard to produce, sit there doing nothing...

I'm really interested in what makes my "best hubs" the "best." Some of them are pretty low as...far as a traffic count goes, but I'd imagine that those have more unique content. I'm positive that traffic and hubscore are mutually exclusive, and that comments have...

I log on every day, and it seems that I always find negative things popping up in the forums. I am sorry that so many people are struggling on HubPages. From SEO issues to having popular hubs unfeatured for a multitude of reasons, it seems very discouraging for any newcomers. When I first got here...

I'm pretty new at this, so I can really only gauge my hubs' performance against one another!This one is one of my earliest hubs, yet it has fewer views than ones that I've published just a few days ago.http://hubpages.com/hub/How-To-Choose-T … k-CookwareGranted, it's only been 3 weeks, but...

I am not all that familiar with the ends and outs of blogging. My understanding is that you can blog about anything- from handy parenting tips to telling people about how you slipped on some ice and landed on your booty in front of a million people. (I don't know why you would write about that, but...

As fast as I'm trying to fix up hubs that are unfeatured, the problem isn't that there is something wrong with them, but that they are being unfeatured as a result of lack of traffic. Isn't this short sighted? Some topics just don't get that much traffic. It's not because they are badly written,Is...
