My best article on HubPages(has been edited by HubPro as well) is a thorough guide on how to wake up early, for which I have put in a lot of efforts and yet I think that all of that is going in vain. I get about 10 views a day from Quora (because I've put in a lot of efforts answering similar questions and linking back to my article) other than that, I don't get any traffic from anywhere else.
Now, when I was working on that article, and even now that I check, my article is pretty thorough and better than many which show up on the search results. I'm really at a loss. I thought giving it some time will make things better but it hasn't been so and I feel that my article is quite invisible.
I really don't know how to help this situation. If anyone can help me improve my article further or just shed some more light on what is going on, I'll really appreciate it.
Also, in my article metrics, for incoming links, I have a single star. What does it imply? because I have linked back to my article a lot on quora. Does that count for incoming links?
Hi -- you definitely have the right approach and attitude. Don't despair. Gaining traffic on HubPages takes a long time -- months if not years. My best-performing articles, over a thousand views a day, started out with single digits for quite awhile. Keep writing, keep doing what you're doing, and view HubPages as a long-term engagement.
Best of luck to you!
Not sure if your article is on a niche site yet? The niche sites bring in more organic traffic generally speaking but your article still has to be competitive to succeed. So, my advice is keep on track - write and write, make sure your research is thorough, attribute all photographs if they're not your own and think niche...for titles and sub-titles. You may be a fan of SEO which is worth looking into. And try and learn from other writers who have exemplary articles. Be tenacious, keep at it, give it all you've got and you may get the views you deserve.
Thank you for your encouraging words. Yes, my article is on RemedyGrove. I am aware of SEO, but I'm still far from understanding how to get it to work. Also, here is my article as well, if you could check it out.

I think your problem is intense competition. I googled "How to wake up early" and had 603,000,000 results! Even if you write the most fantastic article, you are going to find it difficult to rise up to the top.
Ah, is it just that?! Is there nothing I can do about it now?
Change the title to something a little more niche. Go to AnswerthePublic, type in 'wake up early' and see what else comes up.
For instance, I just tried it, and one thing that people searched for was "How Waking Up Early Changed My Life"... you could add a section on how it applied to you (haven't read your article, sorry) to make the title more relevant.
Take more time to research the topic of your article before spending a lot of time writing a hub. I thought a hub on do it yourself killing bed bugs would be good. There were not very many articles on it on google. But upon closer look i discovered the top pages were monopolized by exterminator companies. I decided not to risk the time and went on to other things.

Hi,Do more experienced Hubbers have any useful tips for getting your article moved to a niche site? I kept seeing advice that goes something like "make sure you write a high-quality article" but it just seems so vague to me. I have 9 articles now and the only one that was moved to a niche...
