    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.

      Hi Nick,

      Your profile score is at 97 and so you are doing something right.

      Its is best to type hubpages into the search bar at the top and scan throught he results that the experts here have given on advice to increase traffic.

      Hope this helps

    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.

    Good luck!

    Edited to add: Backlinking can to improve your hubs' ranking in the search engines. Again, tons of info right here in the forums.

    Well Nick,

    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.

        Look for other people's hub topics you like... read them, comment, and follow them.  It's likely they will return the favor.
