Any tried and tested way you were able to get traffic to your Hub ?
To me the best way has been to write on a topic that appeals to everyone. This isn't always easy and my trade/industry fortunately helps me with that. Surely driving traffic through different media helps but catering to searches people actually use is helpful. Most of my traffic comes from what I believe is having search friendly titles and material, and serves a need or interest that almost everyone has. For me that's being warm and cold. (Everyone has a need to control, repair, or understand their HVAC systems.) I always remind myself that this isn't a magazine or newspaper where an eye catching headline will attract readers. I always ask myself..."What will someone looking for this information type in their search bar?" and then try to incorporate that appropriately in my title. Thanks for letting me give my two cents. Hope it helps.
* Post links to your articles on social media across all your accounts
* Encourage others you know to share the links
* Improve the search engine optimization of the links
My answer is the same as tamara. I didn't know how much my hub scores and traffic would improve until I shared them to more social media places.

If a hub is not featured does that mean that it doesn't get any search engine traffic from Google or other search engines?

I love HubPages, I feel that I have learned so much here and my confidence in writing non-fiction took such a huge leap when I was invited onto the Apprenticeship program last year. I have met some wonderful people here - both staff and other Hubbers. But as may other people have said, the idling...

I had a hub that was receiving around 1,300-1,500 views per day. It was chosen as Editor's Choice. It then dropped by about 1,000 views per day. I opted out of the program, but that hub is no longer showing in Google for the keywords that brought it all the traffic before EC messed it up. How can I...

Happy Friday, Hubbers!Next week we will be raising the quality threshold for newly-published Hubs (meaning newly-Featured Hubs will, on the whole, be of higher quality) and will also be giving Featured Hubs (for those with high Hubber Scores) longer grace periods- up to a year for some.More...

Today I had a hub unfeatured due to a lack of traffic. In the last 30 days it has 72 views, and since January 15, 2015 it has had 473 views. When I contacted the team about this they indicated that only views from "search" count as traffic, but those from social media do...
