Can anyone give me advice about how to get non-HubPage traffickers to rate my hubs. I've about 20 hubs that receive very little traffic from HubPages. Most of the traffic comes from google or yahoo search engines. Take my traditional Spanish wedding hub, for the entire month of Dec. I had 9 hubpage viewers, but 600+ yahoo viewers. I do not think the hub I wrote is bad. Especially bad enough to receive negative ratings, however I cannot be entirely sure about that. Moreover, I think the problem lies with viewers just not rating the hub at all. Has anyone else had this problem? How did you fix that?
Provlem? What problem? Your hubs being viewed via Yahoo or Google searches is fantastic, and is what other people work towards improving.
You're not happy with HP views and ratings, if i were you i wouldn't worry about that too much.
If you want HP views then spend lots of time in the forums so other hubbers will see you and may want to check out your hubs. By doing this you will also gain followers, who will then be able to view all your new published hubs.
It also depends on wether you are here to make money and or for the fun of it. Every time i get involved in the forums, i gain followers, which means that my hubs are viewed and liked by them, so good luck to you.
You should be jumping for joy! It's the external traffic that gives you the earning potential, not internal traffic from HP!
Honestly, ratings are not important. The Internet managed to survive and thrive without people giving each others inconsequential pats on the back.
On the plus side, you are getting outside traffic. Can you capitalize on that? Are there products that are complementary to the content that your visitors might be inclined to buy?
Thanks. I didn't know that the rating wasn't important. I thought that the rating effected my hubscore, and that it made my hubs not get a chance at first bidding when it came to search engines.
Yeah, it's better that you're getting external traffic, although it is nice to get feedback form fellow hubbers
They are right! Congratulations to you IntimatEvolution! Fret no more and rejoice instead
Thanks. I really had no idea. I thought it was all linked. Okay, now I know. Thanks again.

As fast as I'm trying to fix up hubs that are unfeatured, the problem isn't that there is something wrong with them, but that they are being unfeatured as a result of lack of traffic. Isn't this short sighted? Some topics just don't get that much traffic. It's not because they are badly written,Is...

How many times do you edit an idled Hub before deleting it? Or do you keep it idled so that links to it are still good? Also, for what reasons do you either leave it idled or delete it or still try to fix it? I have one Hub which I've edited a few times, and this last time after I edited it, it...

Hi all,Yesterday, when I logged in, I was at 85. Now, I am at 83. I havn't published any hubs or answered any questions, obviously because I was logged out. I am a little confused on how the rating could have gone down. Do Hubs change in rating? I never really paid attention. I noticed one...

Quite a few of my Hubs have related Hubs. I try to put a few links in a Hub to another related Hub when it seems appropriate. But I see that the editors often remove them. I have tried to find out why in past forum postings without any luck. I assume it's because of loss of page rank. Is that the...

What are your thoughts on the new affiliate link affiliate link blanket rule? Do you think it will reduce the tsunami of spam hubs that spammer hubbers are publishing or will it make no difference at all?Personally I have had three Hubs flagged and placed in no mans land for affiliate links even...
