I am thinking about spending some quality time updating my articles and/or writing new ones. I have heard many suggestions over the years on how to increase traffic I don't know where to spend my time effectively. If someone can point me to a Hub or tutorial section that really is worth reading and doing, please let me know.
Looking at your profile Doug, you seem to be doing well. Most of your articles are on niche sites. I can think of three areas that you may want to work on to increase traffic.
1. Word Count
Quote from https://www.sweor.com/seocontentlength
"The average content length for a web page that ranks in the top ten results for any keyword on Google has at least 2,000 words."
Articles that don't attract a lot of traffic often improve rankings when their titles are changed. To this end, you can use Answer the Public, a free tool that helps you find out what people are searching for with respect to your subject.
3. Made for Pinterest Images

Since I migrated here from Squidoo two months ago, I've seen a steady stream of threads in this forum, complaining about lost page views. There are a lot of theories about why it's happening, and how much it's happening, and what can be done to get into Google's good graces.Google is not my #1...

Happy Friday, Hubbers!Next week we will be raising the quality threshold for newly-published Hubs (meaning newly-Featured Hubs will, on the whole, be of higher quality) and will also be giving Featured Hubs (for those with high Hubber Scores) longer grace periods- up to a year for some.More...
