One thing I'm worried about is some of my more active hubs losing traffic. How do you guys maintain traffic to the hubs? Does editing and republishing new content help? Do you just keep writing new hubs and creating links if/when applicable to grow the link authority?
Most of my hubs have slowly grown in traffic over the years with little effort on my part. Editing and updating can help though!
Because the Hubpages site is constantly evolving it seems to help keep all the content fresh.
You should be generating more traffic not less. If you are producing less, odds are you spent too much time on "burst promoting" IE like Digg, and not enough time actually building backlinks. You will find the bulk of your traffic will come from both Google, and other hubbers.
My Hubs, for the most part, maintain themselves. Looking at my ten most-trafficked Hubs right now, seven were written in 2007 and three were written in 2008.
The most I have to do for them these days is keep an eye out for any new developments of interest that might warrant a small edit, and approve or reply to comments.
Actually, the older your hubs get, the more traffic they should get.
Some reasons why you get more traffic:
-Google looks more highly on older content.
-You'll get organic links if it's good - people who like your page will link to it.
Ways to increase "freshness" and get traffic:
-Add a news capsule. Changing news appears as new content to google.
-Approve comments. Same reason as above.
-Write evergreen or evergreen seasonal hubs.
Example of an evergreen seasonal hub:
Example of a non-evergreen hub:
*Top Christmas Toys of 2010.*
Evergreen hubs will continue to build in traffic over time.
But you shouldn't be worrying about all this now. Go write more hubs. Once you've got at least 30 in a variety of styles and subjects you'll be able to see more patterns and get better at deciding what topics and styles work.
Remember - some hubs are just flops. No matter how hard you work. Other hubs can take from 6-9 months to really get noticed by google and start getting regular traffic.
Basically what you are writing now, should start working well for you in six months or so.
I put a pic of WryLilt there, and people come back regularly just to take another look at her.
I was wondering who hacked my computer and stole my bikini pictures...
*spits cola over the screen.........*
Ok, since I figure with Misha's hubs getting 100k views a day...
I'm still trying to figure out how we got from old hubs to bikinis...
You dared to put you bikini pic online?!
Loving it though
If Kylie Minogue can do it why can't I?
Plus maybe it's not me. Like all the male hubbers on here I just decided to use an Indian actress' picture.
*cough* she is not an indian actress *cough*
LOL This does not look like an Indian actress, besides there are similarities to the previous pic. I would think this pic is for real
I again would reply, but I shall just say..... nothing.....safe for all concerned
Well have fun not replying. I'll have fun denying...
Cute couple pic, yeah?
I would answer that, yet I refuse to on grounds that may incriminate me
In addition to writing on evergreen topics, Apply some SEO to your hubs so that you don't have to keep on republishing your older hubs. Traffic just keep coming from the search engines. Keyword research and SEO are the key to traffic.

Do you write for Google or the internal Hubpage community?As I read through the Hubpage tutorials they pointed out it is best to write articles that are "Evergreen."However MANY of the articles I read on Hubpages are simple commentary seemingly directed toward their Hubpage followers.I am...

Since I joined HP there has been a constant battle against the rise and fall of traffic. We are often encouraged to tune our titles, edit our content and generally try to improve our Hubs. Now with the threat of having Hubs unfeatured, as well as the new quality assessment process taking place...

When it was first introduced I was annoyed by it but made an effort to tweak my hubs to get them out of Idle status. Now, a whole load have got zzs against them again and many of them are hubs that at one point were very successful and even now still have scores above 70 or higher.One of the hubs...

I just shared the crap out of a Hub I wrote that I think is pretty good (the one on longevity called "The First Person to Live to Be 200 Years Old is Alive Today"), and it seems to be a home run. In just 2 days, I've gotten 1,623 (about a third of my total views EVER). I'm not...
