    yikes I finally hit a million views! I'm celebrating my traffic milestone by offering tips to increase traffic. Please join in with your own tips on what has helped you increase your traffic.
    1. Figure out what the masses need; what are the majority of people searching for based on needs.
    2. Create evergreen articles; you increase you chances of success by writing about subjects that people will search for until kingdom come.
    3. Develop a niche based on your expertise or passion; I use my articles to supplement my private practice. I got a new client today who stumbled upon one of my articles through a search on marital infidelity.
    4. Keep updating your articles; tweak, correct typos, or add new content.

    Those are my main tips. Thank you to all hubbers, past and current, who helped me or read my articles. It hasn't been easy but I love this community. Hugs! smile

      Hello Janshares,
      What a wonderful milestone to reach! I think you will find that the next million will come much faster. You already have so many great articles and people are aware of you now, so this broadens the readership. Congratulations!

    Jan, want to feel even better?  Check your life-tine Google Analytics; it will be even higher. This is because HP stats doesn't count deleted articles; Google Analytics does. In fact, you might even be in for a shocker. Recommend others do the same. smile

    One million in six year? I'm betting you hit ten million in about 3 more, provided you keep up the work. Hey, it pays better than trolling Facebook all day. I know. I trolled Facebook all day for years. Never got my check. Then they kicked me off the entire website.

    I could have been writing here. I'm smart. I'm just not wise. So my advice is listen to Janshares.

    I bet I've deleted well more than one hundred articles from Hubpages. I'd advise folks against doing that unless the entire subject was just awful. I deleted articles which had tens of thousands of views, and this is because I'm not especially even tempered at all times, and I felt like I could do much much better. It would probably be easier to just edit something until you're happy with it than to do what I would do, which was delete from here, and just move it to blogger to mess with later.

    Also, those pages would have almost certainly made me, and certainly Hubpages.com, more money had I left them right here where they were born.

    The best single thing I ever learned concerning writing and publishing on the web is one must break up their text into small portions. The greatest text in the world will just annoy a reader if the paragraph is so big they are losing their place from their smartphone display.

    Break up those paragraphs into three or four sentence chunks which the modern small device user can read them with ease. I'm forever on a desktop computer with a not super large monitor, and I notice myself getting annoyed and losing interest in something I'm trying to read for the size of the paragraph, and me losing my place and train of thought.

      jansharesposted 3 months agoin reply to this

      Excellent advice Wesman. Thanks for celebrating with me. You took the road meant for you to wind up back here with more knowledge about how to hub successfully. So be kind to yourself and keep up the good work.

    Don't usually reveal details of my hubs private lives, but I just noticed one of them has made half a million views -- 530,268, as of today.

    That has a title acquired from the old HP keyword suggestions tool, retired long ago.

    Congrats Jan! You'll be surprised how quickly the second million arrives.
    I agree with all four of your tips. For me #4 is crucial. I've deleted more than half of my original hubs (all of which were on niche sites) and then I update every single one that remains at least once every three months. I earn far more now than I did when I had more than twice as many hubs.

      Hi Beth, thanks for the celebration and encouragement. smile I update every 2 to 4 months as well, focusing mainly on the most popular articles. I see a lot of hubbers talk about deleting hubs. I've never deleted a single one. Sounds like a good strategy for most.
