So I am still pretty farn new and when I first wrot emy hubs I was getting a bunch of traffic, granted it was all from hubpages and my blog/facebook etc, but now it has totally died...getting one hit a day if I am lucky per hub...is this normal until the pages get indexed or do I really just suck that bad (and how do they know I suck if they dont read my hibs?
Did you expect too much?
Keep on writing original content and you will have the traffic.
Yes it's normal.
Before you write too many more Hubs, I suggest you do some reading on how to write Hubs, and also on the Adsense terms of service.
Even if you're not signed up for Adsense yet, HubPages is, so you'll have to abide by the Adsense rules. One of those is that adult content is not allowed. You might want to review some of your Hubs and look for words that are likely to trigger Adsense's prudish robots...
With time comes traffic. One of my hubs had only 100 views in two months, then after 4 more months, it went up to over14,000 views. Just give it time and the traffic will come.
Share them in free classified ads, google community, get the word out on your hubs. Good luck. Also.. go to our topic section and start exploring, as well as create forum topics pertaining to your hub.. however never add your hubs in here.
In any case, internal Hub traffic is a drop in the ocean compared to what will from search engines. And Hubbers never click on ads, so you'll never make any money from them.
If anyone is on the forums because they think it will help their earnings, they have a lot to learn.
You have only been here 1 week man, dont worry about it, the traffic will pick up. You just worry about writing more content...if you write it, they will come
There is always traffic at first from HubPages, and then it tends to slow down until the Hub starts getting search engine traffic. Backlink your Hubs and this should help.
Just keep writing and traffic will come - also for some reason my traffic always slows at the weekend!
First, learn about key words, there are plenty of hubs on that topic, if you do a search. I nearly tripled my traffic when I researched and updated the key words on my hubs, six months ago.
Next, learn about backlinking. Sunforged has an article about do-follow backlings that pay. Last month I placed one do-follow link to each of my hubs, and have seen a 50% increase in traffic this month, plus a huge increase in earnings.
Went and posted my hubs on she told me and Xomba and got WAY more traffic allready!
I say if there's no traffic, hit the throttle and speed buddy.
Wow...now most of my traffic is coming from Xoomba...that is so cool!
Good stuff man! Keep it up. I am a big Xoomba fan as well
Cool. I must say, also. I have several threads pertaining to my
hubs in our awesome forum. Again, as long you don't add you hubs to them. However, go to google community as well. As well as free classified ads to share. We can share them in classified ads. I just got authorization for our team.
Have a great day.

Hi,I've signed up and am ready to start making hubs in my specialised subject, but I was wondering what the earning potential of hubbig (if that's a word) actually is. I realise it all depends on how attractive your pages are and how good they are etc, but what are people actually earning? I am not...

Many people writing different things. But I and I'm sure that many other people would like to know the potential of hubpages. Thanks for answers.

A grimble grumble moment..I like writing here - I like the layout and the forum and community are supportive.. but...I have a real feeling that my Hubs would be better off on my blogs.Of course I understand I am a guest here - but at the end of the day Google hates us.My traffic is dropping like a...

My Amazon sales are dead in the water. My Amazon Caps are discrete - I have added only when directly related to a product.I am not getting much traffic at the mo, so I guess this is an issue. I posted around 60 Hubs in Dec 2014, so it should be these have not been picked up by Google as organic...

Just gaging anyone else's earnings here. I just checked google adsense and I have earned 64 dollars in 18 months. I've only written 19 Hubs and most of them don't get any traffic. Any thoughts?

Well, it seems to me that my traffic is never going to increase.I am lucky to get one hit a week now, and the only traffic I am getting is from google.I know that being away for a while doesn't help much, but none of my other sites are doing any better. With all the stuff that is going on with my...
