Why is that one of my HubPages articles gets no web traffic at all? Before this month I used to have 10-15 daily visits to one of my articles, but now(october) I don't have any web visits except by myself. Is there any problem? Please help me out of this. Here is the link to my article.

Your article is on the HubPages site and not on a (preferred) network site. You need to get it moved. You can submit it yourself, but you might consider running a plagiarism check on it because it is very similar to other articles on the web.
It needs a thorough proofread, as you have typed HLD in stead of HDL several times.
I can't speculate on why your views have dropped; such a phenomenon happens to most articles over time, one day they're up, the next they are down.
My observation about the article itself is that it's highly technical and average readers such as myself will leave fairly quickly because we lack the background knowledge to understand the material.
The outbound links will also hurt your readership. Your goal is to keep readers on your page not send them away to another site - they might not come back.
Traffic goes up, traffic goes down. Some days it's great, other days it sucks. It's the nature of the beast.
Thank you for your suggestions and advice. I really appreciate it.
Science subjects are difficult. You clearly know your biochemistry but that is only half of the battle. Having a clear idea of your intended audience and what they are likely to understand is the other half.
Popular Science can do well on sites like Owlcation, if you get it right. Graduate level, and above, hard science pages are not likely to do well (though please prove me wrong, lol).
Popular science is about giving some notion of what scientific understandings mean in real, everyday life. You have worked hard at explaining what all the cholesterol data really means, but I reckon a rearrangement of the page would help.
Perhaps lead with the simple stuff, introduce the hard science further down the page.
Best of luck. I reckon you could contribute plenty of useful pages. There are not many biochemists here.
I sort of lost heart when the Krebs Cycle could no longer be represented on a single piece of A4. Even in really tiny font.
edit: it is never a bad thing to produce pages that teachers and school children will find useful.
I hate to say it, but 10-15 views per day isn't really that much in the grand scheme of things, not really much better than zero - I have been known to delete articles that get less than 10 views per day.
As already pointed out, you really need to get an article onto a niche site to get anywhere. And, as also said, popular science is generally the best way to get views. Even then, you are often expected to provide some backing to the article, such as sources/references.
Your biog doesn't really tell us much about your background, it really just gives your name, mentions a qualification, and that you consider yourself to be an aspiring biochemistry expert. We don't need your name restating as it's written right above the biog, so that's wasted words for me. Where you studied, what job you do, other related experience would all be more useful to the reader. The more technical an article is, the more you have to prove your credibility, which can be difficult, as you will be judged by both HP editing staff and the readers.

I'm pulling 2013 kind of randomly, but I really miss how HubPages used to be. It used to be a really friendly place. We used to have kind of an "in" with the administration in that Maddie and Simone would give us advice. There used to be contests to motivate us to write.I understand that...

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...

I had an article that was consistently getting 1500 views/day. Then I was contacted by a HubPages editor who said she was going to tweak the page, update the illustrations, etc. Great, fine! The DAY her changes went live, the views and earnings dropped in half, and have stayed there ever since...

Hello Hubbers! I'm fairly new to HubPages, I've been here about a week now and love the community so far! Anyway, I was thinking, since we all have the same goal; to make money, get readers and help people, I thought I would make a topic for us all to discuss the best places to post our HubPages...

So now hubpage pro goes and ruins my article. They remove the first picture which is what draws the traffic to my article. This is how it works. I know this because I used to get 1.5 million views on posts in the early days of G+ And I did that often enough (2 or 3 times a week over a two year...
