    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.

      I would use something like Yost SEO to fine tune your writing. In general, shorter sentences and simpler words help increase traffic.

    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
    "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."

    2. Titles
    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
