    How many years does it take to get more traffic to your articles, do you have to post every day?

      In my experience, posting evergreen, consistently good quality articles that provide useful information for the reader is the best way to attract regular traffic.

      Try and build up a solid base of great articles and if they are featured on the niche sites you should get some earnings eventually. It can take time so be patient, learn from the veterans and the HP Learning Center.

      I have been about 4 months, so I am new to be sharing. Nevertheless, I think it depends on what you post. You have to get lucky that the search engines like your keywords and readers are interested in your topic. For example, I have a seasonal article that is doing very well right now, but I know it is going to be less popular in another month. However, that being said, I think my present goal is 100 articles by December, but it is likely most of my traffic will come from only a few and that is if I am lucky. (We will see if I make it.) I do not post daily, but I try to post every other day if I am having a good month. I was kind of lax this month though.

      My experience is that the articles I write take about a year to really take off.  I've written close to 100 articles this year and only one is getting significant traffic whereas the articles that I wrote last year are getting lots of traffic.

        I agree with this. You need at least 90 days to know if an article even has potential and then another 9 months to see it's full potential.

    Thank you chef-de-jour for the advice. I am going to just keep developing a broad range of article topics that I am capable of writing that will get featured.

    One good article is better than 30 mediocre articles. Sometimes it's surprising which topics are successful, but if you feel passionate about a subject it will come through in your writing. It's hard go get any traction if what you are writing about is an over-saturated topic (the Bible).

    Poems and fiction don't usually get a lot of traffic. I thought the topic of Gospel Rap was interesting, I had never heard of it. Maybe you should develop that one a little more. Give some examples of Gospel Rap artists you like and add a video or two.

    Sherry is right - the road to riches on HubPages is not covered in masses of poorly written or even mediocre articles.

    It is a rare person that can research, write, proof and publish a top notch article every day.  Far better to take whatever time is required - whether a day or a month - to produce one really good article than to simply throw words on a page in the forlorn hopes it will be a hit.

      I agreed with willderness. I don't think a person can chun out 800 words daily and had them featured.

    Take your time. No need to post daily. Focus on quality rather than quantity at first. The traffic will come slowly but surely, maybe surely and quickly if you happen to write about a topic people are searching for and need. When I started, I think I put out 2 to 3 articles a week for the first few weeks, then it decreased to 2 or so a month, then less and less. I didn't see money for 9 months and no real traffic for a couple years. It really takes time unless you come with a niche or specific expertise for a particular audience. Good luck.

    I think the concept of daily posting, even for blogs, no longer works. Although for fresh blogs, it could provide a short-term, minimal boost.

    As for HP, the only avenue to get real sustainable traffic is to work toward getting your hubs picked for the niche sites. Only then can you benefit from their high authorities. However, you would still need exemplary content. Frankly, I can't see that happening when one rushes to churn out something each day.

    As for your other qn, it took me well over a year to get significant daily traffic. And that only happened after I took effort to understand the niche site system/requirements.

    Thank you everyone for your advice. I really appreciate it.
    I think I am going to take my time and really enjoy the process of writing articles and not try to write things too fast.  I always want readers to enjoy what I write.

    Another thing to remember is that this site is not for blogs. Anything written in that format is almost guaranteed NOT to be selected for a niche site. HP is focused on having us produce good quality articles, and has given many guidelines for how to do that.

    Maven is HP's parent company and, since the conversion of niche sites to their format, they have become somewhat the determiners of which articles are selected for those sites. Consider the other sites they own, like Sports Illustrated, and you'll see the level of quality I'm talking about.

    We don't have to be QUITE that good, but much better than a blog. It takes me two or three weeks, sometimes longer, to write a good article, and I've been on here for nine years (yawk!) and writing longer than that.
