This mightve been asked before, but my views and comments have dropped significantly the past week. I posted a new hub about a week and a half ago, and I haven't been getting near as many readers on it. What should I do to get viewers back?
You need to find where the traffic drops have come from, do you have Google analytics installed?
A Bit of research should help to show you exactly where things have been going wrong.
I might just, if I were you, look with a fresh eye at what you write that gets the most traffic, and comments. Then I would look at how you have responded to comments. Have you been short or snippy with anyone? (When I follow somebody I don't unfollow them)
You generally write about yourself, your beliefs, but this time you wrote about football. I am not a sports person really, but isn't Football season over?
My best hub, traffic wise, was about the Olympics, but it didn't get many comments. General stuff needs no commentary, but stuff that people identify with you, that's when they seem to read and comment.
It's probably because you haven't been active in the forums lately, since most of your traffic comes from within HubPages.
You need to be targeting organic traffic. You need google anaylitics to research this. Organic traffic is traffic from search engines and sites outside hubpages. Organic traffic is the only traffic that matters - these are your customers who click on your ads.
Do you have the right keywords? Have you the backlinks?

I am thinking about building some backlinks to my Hub[ages subdomain, but am not sure where and how should I start. What do you suggest? What's your backlining strategy? Is it really impossible to get so organic traffic without backlinks? If not, how difficult is it?

Have you noticed that you must be signed in to click on a hubber's name to go to their hubs? This does not seem good to me; it keeps readers from spotting hubbers they may want to check out and the traffic we are after is non-hubbers isn't it? So they would never be signed in. This seems an issue...

What the heck is the point of Q&A? I don't mean that sarcastically. I am really trying to figure it out. I can't formulate a strategy for properly using this feature unless I can understand the intent behind it.First the Q&A questions/answers were on their own pages with their own urls. It...
