What is a good traffic flow for a beginner? When can it be expected to improve?
I have read all of the forums and posts about traffic, but what is an average traffic flow for a newbie? How long before it might be expected to go up? What is a good number of views for a beginner? I feel like mine are dismal (just over 200 for 9 hubs over one month).
You gotta write more and share your links on social media.
It is difficult to say what is "good" traffic for a beginner. When I started, with a similar number of hubs, I got nowhere near 200 views in a month. As stated below, you need to keep writing more hubs and post links to your hub on Social Media to increase your readership. You can also follow people here on HubPages and answer questions to increase the number of people who read your hubs. Good luck and welcome to HubPages.
It depends on how you promote your hubs and what you're writing about. If you're writing about something extremely common such as "weight loss" then you'll probably see less traffic because there is a lot of competition. If this is the case then I would recommend trying to be active on the HP forums etc and become a part of the community because you'll receive more internal traffic than search engine traffic.
As for good traffic, it just takes time but 200 in a month is certainly not bad for a beginner. If nothing else, you've had 200 more than you this time last month.
That's a very positive way to look at it David, it's true that I have 200 more views on my writing than I did before I started this adventure. As far as topics go, I'm trying to stick to things I actually know about. Hopefully they aren't too generic

Hi--me again.. I was reading that there is a 'nofollow' generated on hubs with scores of 50 or under, so I've un-published all of mine that were down in that range. The result is that my total hub count is now way down, so that instead of 10 more hubs to 100, I've now got to...

I saw backlinking as one. What exactly is backlinking? How can we use Google Webmaster Tools to improve traffic? What are the changes to be made in the crawl rate after logging in, if any? Its been close to three months into Hubpages and I am getting a majority of my views from Hubpages. My Google...

I'm bored. Ok correction, I'm procrastinating. I randomly come on and off the forums and on this return visit I've seen SO many people questioning why their hubs aren't making money and/or getting traffic.So for as long I'm having fun, feel free to post below (either for your whole account or one...

I have noticed it is hovering just below 85 recently. I have a few Hubs with a score of around 71, could this be the reason?

First, I want to apologize if you've heard this question a 1000 times before, but I'd be grateful if you could advise me from your experience.If I was to publish a large number of hubs across various topics, each targeting a well researched keyword/s, is it realistic to aim for an average daily...
