Before the holidays, I've noticed that a dozen of my hubs are not featured due to traffic. I know I've had this problem in the past, when it's normally fixed when I share them on Twitter. I've looked SEO traffic on line and then mentioned to add hashtags to the tweets. So how I do get them back to featured again? Revise the hubs from title to content, one at a time, or share them on Twitter or something else? Any suggestions would be helpful as I hope to be a bit more active on HP this year. Thanks.
The only thing you can do is edit them and add a little more content to each one. There might be some 'pruning' you can do as well, i.e. delete repeated information or tidy up long sentences. Perhaps you can improve photos by taking new ones, or finding better ones on sites like Pixabay.
It's worth thinking of your collection of articles as a garden that needs periodical tending
Sharing on Twitter (facebook, pinterest, or any other social media site) will not prevent your article from becoming unfeatured, even if you do manage to get some traffic from there. As Paul pointed out some time back, articles become unfeatured when they no longer have "a heartbeat" from Google;
It does not take much traffic from there, but there does have to be some.
You need to follow Bev´s suggestions and edit your articles, add improved photos, etc.
Thanks Bev and Mark for your valuable input. I'll start going back to revising them this week and see what I can do in the next couple of weeks. Fingers crossed. (My Pilates/yoga hubs I need to majorly rework somehow and save toward the end.)

I'm relatively new to Hubpages, and so far I've published three articles. However, the view numbers are pretty small, and I'd like to increase them. I'm currently writing some more Hubs right now, but any tips that you'd like to share, I'd really appreciate them

If we pump up our use of social media, i.e., marketing our articles more, will it help increase our traffic much? Or won't it make much difference because we are more dependent upon organic traffic? Something tells me we might have to wait out this drought. What say you?

I'm assuming the more visits you get to your hubs the better your chances of earning money. Anyone have any suggestions?
