doesn't come up on the first page of Google searches, yet still gets plenty of traffic?
...or does making it to the first page pretty much manditory if you want lots of visitors?
The key is to get traffic onto your hub site, enter as many forums, post, post and more post on peoples hubs, leaving comments to help revenue traffic and stay versatile and free!
I find the more "FREE" you are, you have no restriction, just an envelope to push when it comes to controversy. Post everywhere you can!
Google, Tagged, Myspace, Friendster (to name a few.) My page never shows up anywhere and I wonder how people find it. It's all about the hours on the internet and the weaving in and out of peoples sites and figuring out what you can contribute! Keep things interesting and BOOM! You'll get what you need.
What are your parameters for "plenty of traffic?"
I've got Hubs which aren't on the first page of Google and I feel they get plenty of traffic, but if your concept of plenty is different from mine, you might or might not feel the same way.
Google is the biggest of course, but there are other search engines. For some keywords Yahoo for example brings more traffic than Google. Bing can supply you with pretty decent traffic, too
What page you are on depends on exactly what search terms the person is using. So you can have a low rank but still be in the first page for some commonly searched phrases.
yes my hubs on the death penalty from day one have consistently outperformed every other of my hubs yet have not appeared on the first page of google...unlees I missed something !
Same as Relache really, how much do you consider to be plenty?
A hub at the top of Google will get more traffic than a hub on the second page of Google, period.
But I have hubs on the second page of Google which get me over 50 page views per day, it depends solely on the keywords in question. Second page on Google for a keyword with 30000 searches a month beats top of Google for a keyword which gets 20 searches per month.... in my humble opinion....
I have lots of hubs that get plenty of traffic and the PR on my hubs are no greater than PR3.
Where my hubs rank on Google or Yahoo or any other Search Engine is unknown, because I haven't looked.
I believe if you are on the first page of Google it would present you with a lot of traffic because most people click on websites that are included on the first page. I personally search my hubs revolved around my keywords to see where mine ranks and some of them rank good and some of them rank poorly but the key thing is by maximizing your hub by including them on all kinds of social media websites so that more people can view your hub(s).
Agreed, I would like to know what a lot of traffic is. Most of my first page Google hubs on decent keywords bring in between 500-1000 visitors a day, on some of my personal sites I have written articles which bring in over 3000 visitors a day.
All this is from Google's front page.
It's all in the perspective.
My most highly viewed hub is not on page 1 of Google. It varies between page 3 and page 4. People find it somehow, and part of it probably has to do with their needing pictures. It's one of those hubs with about 6 photos. I have another hub on the same subject, and it gets comparatively little traffic.
It can depend on the keywords, it may be that you are getting traffic for keywords that you did not know about, check the stats now that they tell you what the searches were made for.. I know that most of the hits on some of my pages are not actually for the keywords I targeted.
Interestingly enough Bing is best targetted at users over 60, yahoo users over 35, and Google for younger users.
Google still has more searches than the other two combined though, even with the best targetted age groups of the other search engines.
I've got a lot of articles on google's first page, but they don't bring me a lot of traffic because they are not highly searched items!
My blog is number 1,2,3 and 4 of google, but not many people search for the keyword so it doesn't do me much good.

I've been updating and removing hubs. I haven't settled on a plan for good hubs that don't get traffic. Curious what others do. My top 40 hubs are 85% of traffic. I culled the heard and have been focused on my best hubs.Once I'm through them I'll come up with a plan for the rest.

In the back of my mind I'm always looking for ways we can improve the HubPages product to help people be more efficient at increasing their traffic. Lots of things in the product start with manual expirments that turn into features of some sort.Right now I'm experimenting with updating old...

I've read a lot about the importance of doing keyword research, but then you also get the impression that to really do that research properly can take a long time unless you get lucky early on or really know what you are doing. So I wonder, with some people pumping out huge amounts of hubs, are...

I am major curious about the answer to this mystery.... just how much traffic are those Hubs who make it to the HOT HUBS actually receiving? I know that most likely nobody is going to give this up with specific numbers.... but how about some averages as to what kind of traffic brings a...

In the few years that I have been on this site, I have heard that you can increase traffic by picking short titles. I have also read that you can get traffic by choosing a long title and including many search phrases in your title, and also by picking long titles that are specific for a...

My most recent hub was Snipped and given a new short title by staff which does not properly reflect the contents of the hub. Views have been negatively impacted and have not picked up after the change. I want to change the title back to what it was. I wrote to staff...
