    41 hubs and 41 views per day?  WTF?!  What did I do to deserve this?

    I don't get it.  Traffic has been dropping steadily now and I even added half a dozen more hubs.  This is getting ridiculous.  Would someone be nice enough to help a brother out and have a look at my hubs to see if this is my fault or some internet goblin?

    I took a look. Unfortunately what you write about is something I know little to nothing about so I have no idea what keywords you should be using. However for example, your hub titled Your Auto Insurance, this title is awful! If I am wanting to better understand what type of insurance I need or what the different types mean I will Google a phrase like "What is Personal Injury Protection", "How to Understand My Insurance" or Understanding the Different Types of Insurance". The title you have is way too broad. When I Google that title I actually get a ton of just insurance companies help pages. You need to get familiar with what keywords are best for your hubs. Make sure you are using those keywords in both your titles and subtitles.

    Ok so then I'm probably sabotaging all my hubs because I deliberately choose stupid titles like that based on what Google Keyword Planner tells me to pick.  That title was the only "medium" competition title out of any of the ones I could have picked so I figured less competition is better right?  If this is the wrong approach, which tool do you suggest using to pick titles?

      I use keyword planner only to a certain extent, before using any title though, google it to see what pulls up. If you are doing all that already, then I don't know what to tell you.

      Hi Chris!  I use to think the same, the less competition the best, but after working with an SEO specialist its the opposite.  The more the better.  Then it means that many people are searching using these words.  What is left is working ur ranking.

    I noticed the same thing as Peeples. Most of your titles are so broad that no one is going to bother reading them. I doubt if you came across a title like that when searching that you would read them yourself.
    Like the rocket hubs "R is for rocket", or "Life Expectancy". How about "10 ways to increase life expectancy"? (That probably has thousands of web pages already though.) The only titles that looked interesting were your car hubs, like OHV, modding, etc. I am not sure how many searches a phrase like this gets.
    The other thing to worry about is where Google is ranking your car hubs in its search engine. If you have a lot of different subjects in your profile, Google probably considers you an expert on nothing. A lot of the people who come here to write get terrible traffic and leave after writing a few hubs; in my opinion they are trying to work in too many areas.
    Read through this forum and see if it helps.
    The related forums on the bottom of the page are good too and provide some helpful information.
    Good luck. I do not know how long it is going to take you to get a 100 times increase, but you should have a 10 time increase in just a few weeks.
