Hi Guys, I have about 50 featured hubs but my traffic is hardly 20 views per day. Please advice me
Hi Guys, I have about 50 featured hubs but my traffic is hardly 20 views per day (50 hubs put together). I have heard about the Google panda update and hubpages submitting separate domains to google. Im not sure if the traffic drop is related to this. I would be grateful if fellow hubbers could advise me what the exact problem with my hubs
The bottom line is there are two ways to get traffic to an article. Organic searches through a browser search using a search engine like Google, Bing, and etc. The other method is through social media marketing. In other words, posting at Facebook, using twitter, or posting at other social media sites.
To get organic traffic means when a person searches an interest by using a query with the search engine the result will be articles in a ranking order. Most people will choose an article on the first page or maybe from a few pages after. So, the goal becomes getting an article to be in that in range. That is accomplished by using Search Engine Optimization (SEO) techniques when writing the article. Yes, one element of good SEO practice is article quality. Also, an impact to consider is how popular a topic fulfilling a user's interest is.
The only suggest I have is to pick an article as a learning experiment. Based on the article think of questions a user may have that the article answers or the main topic from the title formed into a question. The title of an article is a vary key element of SEO.
Type that into the browser search window and see the results. You will see the ranking order of articles that the Search Engine provides to answer the query. Then if you wish look through the pages until you discover your article. A hint of the competition will be to check to see how many articles are produced by that search.
For instance, I have an article about leveling a concrete birdbath. It is a How-To article. It is also on DenGarden a niche site of HubPages. I just typed in the browser search 'leveling a birdbath'. My article is the first article on the first page. If I type in Concrete Birdbaths it appears on the second page of results at the bottom of the page. The title is 'How to Level and Adjust a Heavy Concrete Bird Bath'.
Another key element of SEO is keyword and phrases. As seen in the title the keywords were birdbath, concrete, and level. Those keywords are used in the article. When the search engine ranks an article that relationship is an element for it.
But, someone has to search that or something similar, which leads to how popular it is. Frankly, I get ten or less views a day from that article. And, that is my most popular article. But, it should be obvious there will not be a lot of people interested in that article. BTW . . . the search results are 202K for the first search I did.
I hope that helps . . .
Hey Tim, so beautifully you have answered. I just checked your slider. While there are articles on writer's block, how to edit, and more, there is none for SEO, keyword, and traffic. I seriously request you write an article on SEO. It Wil be helpful
I am no expert in that arena, though have a basic understanding. I would recommend Moz.com beginner guide for SEO at this link https://moz.com/beginners-guide-to-seo The biggest keys for HP is titles, keyword & phrases, and quality content + inte

On a different account, somewhat "experimental" account, one of my Hubs is unfeatured. Generally my inclination was to unpublish it and move it or just delete it. But I kept it and put it in a Hub group. Meaning, if the Hubs before and after it get traffic, possibly the unfeatured one...

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'm thinking the answer is probably yes?If you have hubs that have been deemed "not featured", for one reason or another, will that factor into lowering your overall score/rating as a HubPages member? Example--let's say your overall rating is 75. If 10 non featured hubs become...

I saw a dramatic traffic drop today and went to notice that over 100 of my hubs are not featured. While I can understand some of my older ones published over 4 years ago were not that great, some of them were published just months ago and are engaging, have beautiful pictures and very few links....

In the past few days my traffic had dropped to 1/3 of what it was. Most of it lost from Google. Besides the latest Panda update, which helped some and hurt others, I am wondering if a change that HubPages just made had had a negative effect...Ten of my hubs that were idle (not featured) have...
