What have been your most popular hub topics?
Looking for general topics that have engaged you with your readers in the past.
My hub about Trina Garnett (the subject of a Ted presentation), a hub about Tulum (an archaeological site in Mexico that I visited), and a hub on self defense get the most views for me.
I wrote a piece called Pineal Gland The God Organ and wrote it in such a manner, that a college student could copy and paste it as their own and turn it in as an essay. I wrote it a few years ago but it has well over 29,000 page views which is twice as many as any of my articles.
However I have found that what interest me the most are the articles that I passionately research and that comes out in my writing, these are topics about ancient human history, all things metaphysical, a little bit about the paranormal and astronomy.
I have written many articles about Nibiru Planet X and they account for about a third of my total of over 304,000 page views for 218 articles. While my view of the true nature of Nibiru Planet X has changed in the last year, I still think it will make an appearance in 2017, perhaps sooner.
I have learned so much in the last four years on Hub Pages, researching and writing articles but the one thing that has had the greatest impact on me is that all of the answers to my questions can be found in my own heart, through meditation and changing my own perception or reality.
In a nut shell, I have found that you gotta write about what you love and interests you because that love light will shine in your words and your readers will appreciate that you have taken the time to share some of your love with them.
I've approached it 2 ways.
1) Write factual content that people will search for:
My Best performing hub, by far, has been my review of the Epiphone ES335 PRO guitar. It's done so well for a number of reasons... Firstly Epiphone is a popular brand, but that particular model is quite new and is getting quite a reputation. The result of this is that it features quite high up the google rankings, getting a lot of organic hits. It's also my oldest hub which also helps.
2) Write passionate content that capture's the imagination.
Next in Line are my "Goa Trip" Hubs. Which are short stories about my experiences travelling there. I have a parent hub for this, which contains links all 10 (and counting) chapters of the story. What I've found here is that people read one part and often go on to read the others, which helps traffic. The Goa Hubs are a lot easier to write for me, as I enjoy it more.
My hub called "How to Make the World's Best Scrambled Eggs" is my consistently best hub for traffic. Others that do well are "More Unexplained Coincidences" and "My Friend the Oak".
I feel that it will be coloured by the individual's personality, the sum total of his/her character, the manifestation or harvest of his/her karma. Mine is the spiritual, and I do both prose and poetry. You may visit my poetry here: manatita44.hubpages.com.
I'm essentially esoteric, ethereal, aesthetic ...I do not do too much which is contradictory to my true Character. I expect that most others are the same. All things are usually coloured my our own interests. I have friends I like very much, but they like politics also, and I feel that it is not my genre or domain. So, I stay away ...usually. Much Love, Ashley.
My best performing hub is one about auto detail prices. It has almost 95,000 views and I have actually received outside writing assignments because of it. Don't ask me why, but it has performed well since the first day I wrote it. My second best performing hub is one about which medicines to use for toothaches. It has been viewed almost 78,000 times. Most of my hubs are doing well, but these two hubs consistently receive the most traffic.
For a long time, my most read article was "The Lowdown on Energy Drinks". Recently, " I Wish I'd Known This When I First Went To College!" has surpassed it. I am currently trying to get it uploaded onto the websites of all the high schools here, as well as the local community college and university. Ironically, when I first published it 3 years ago, it started off with the incredibly low score of 42! It now ranks in the 80s and 90s.
My political themed hubs seem to get the best traffic - my numbers are no where near the size as some of the other more established Hubbers, but they are growing and its fun for me.

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 have been writing articles and flash fiction stories on HubPages but am unsure what topics are the most popular ones. Also, is it better to write in a specific niche or to try to write in a wide array of topics? Thank you

What makes a hub popular? Which topics tend to be the most popular?

I write how-to and recipe hubs. I know the recipe hubs will make money eventually but I have read that technical hubs get more views. What is your thoughts or experience on this topic?

17 Hubs published and I get about one view per day between all of them? I realize it takes a while to establish yourself but is that normal? Does it pick up over time? All my articles are well over length and get maximum hubber checkmarks? Now, granted, I don't...

I joined HubPages about 1 year ago and I have only written 13 hubs. Out of these 13 only 2 hubs are getting good traffic. That's why I deleted 11 hubs and left these 2 hubs on here. I'm not sure if I should go on with writing here. I think I would still keep my account because I like the HubPages...
