I have been a member here for about eleven months, but have only got serious about HP in the last six weeks or so.
Nevertheless, my articles are receiving no more than a handful of hits on a daily or even monthly basis, yet I cannot see where I am going wrong.
Would someone out there be prepared to give me some help in this area as I could really use some direction and would really appreciate the feedback.
Your hubs look great. The only two pieces of advice I would give you would be to get rid of the large full-width pictures at the top of your hubs, make them smaller and move them down into your hub somewhere, and do a lot of work with your tags. There's plenty of information on them here in the forums. Just do the proper search.
You also should look into keyword research to make sure that the topics you are writing about actually get traffic. Again, plenty of information right here in the forum.
Edited to add: Backlinking can to improve your hubs' ranking in the search engines. Again, tons of info right here in the forums.
The best way to judge whats wrong with hubs is to select a random one. I choose:
"What's the world's greatest Guitar?"
I dont think that Hub can be getting more then 8 views a day! (I could be wrong but im just going off of what my personal experiences were.)
Now your ranked number 2 on google for your title, very nice no problem their. The problem is no one is typing in "What's the world's greatest guitar?"
I assume any traffic you get is off the main keyword "Worlds Greatest Guitar" and if thats the case your ranked high for the term in " " but with it just doing a general search your on page 2 of google!
Being on page 2 normally isnt that bad, but thats because so many hits go to the keyword that people will look a few pages in. But the cold hard fact is no one is searching for the term, which is why your not getting the views you want.
You hub is more Niche aimed, meaning if you wrote it on a guitar blog with guitar fans then you might get a great amount of impressions. But just standing it out alone in the world their isnt much chances of it being overly successful.
I would say 1/4th of my hubs get less then 50 views a month, but the reason why I keep them is they have an almost 90% new google traffic rate. (That works out to average 180 new google visitors)
To improve traffic to the Hub you need to do extensive backlinking and maybe write an article with a link in a famous blog for guitar players.
Somethings are just dry from competition or lack of searches.
I think your doing good But there something wrong with your hubs??? :-)
Need Help check my profile to find win-win solutions :-) anyway you already have more than 50 hubs its a great investment of course if you know the trick's believe me your traffic getting will increase
Hint : Do some research before you give article to Google listing otherwise you only get a lot of Fans without any click at all :-) cause hubber only increase your Impression I.e your ecpm will decrease,
Thanks to all of you for your invaluable help.
I think I know where I'm going wrong now, but it's just a case of trial and error.
Only time and taking your advice will prove the pudding...

Hint : there is always a secret in every web 2.0 I.e a loopholes, cause if Big G have it then hubpages? :-)
as long you not over do :-) it will work just fine :-) enjoy !!!

I have been on hubpages for two months. I have read multiple articles on SEO and backlinking. Ninety percent of my hubs do not have backlinking. But I choose for a while to say no backlinking. It was "different" I thought and "original". ...

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...

I published a couple new hubs yesterday and Im going to see if they generate decent traffic without backlinks created by me. I did take care to choose the keywords but I want to see if they get the right sort of traffic without me backlinking.

There is a lot of bad SEO (search engine optimization) advice out there, and the use of automated services that procure backlinks to your Hubs is one particularly egregious example. Using services to get backlinks can result in your Google AdSense and/or HubPages account permanently banned. Yes, we...
