When I first joined hubpages i only made a few hubs and was hiatus. I actually made a few bucks off them and now I have a substantial more, but there all new and ironically income has not dramatically changed yet even though traffic has been increasing.
I was wondering did your hubs pick up more after a few months? I would like to know how accurate this is. I know a hub with bad quality hub 100 words or irrelevant content won't do well, but I am speaking about the beginning average hub to low performing hub.
Share your experience in this....
Pcunix has a great Hub that will answer some of your questions. Check it out here:

You've been here for only ten months. I've been here for going on three years. Let me assure you, the name of the game is sticking with it, learning as much as you can from successful Hubbers, working hard, and being patient.
There is no magic quick success here. You get out of it what you put into it.
Yeah I been here for 10 months, but only working on it for about 3. I wish I would of used it more when I started. I can not remember why I was not on here. I think i was using some other site, but it was no good.
So you were waiting for a magic potion? Whatever or whoever gave you that idea at the beginning was wrong. So take a new step and get going!
Yes, definitely. I don't do much promotion on my Hubs so it takes time for them to do well in the search engines.
I tend to get a flurry of traffic when I first publish(which is from other Hubbers), then things go quiet for a few weeks until the search engine traffic starts arriving.
If the Hub is going to do well, traffic will start climbing and just go on climbing the older it gets. I haven't seen any Hubs go backwards yet.
Of course, I also have a big stable of Hubs that never really took off and are languishing with little or no traffic. Occasionally I'll try doing something with them, but I've come to the conclusion that for most of them, I picked the wrong topic so no amount of tweaking will make much difference.
Yes i get more tariff more my aged hubs like when i write my hub <snipped link> tariff comes 5-7 visiters per days but now 25 visiters dially
Yes with age they will gain more traffic, but its a slow process..Google Search Engine respects websites they know are going to stick around for a long time.
Maybe you should just go back to your own question and read the answers,
http://hubpages.com/question/65963/is-i … -generally
Some of my hubs pick up and get more traffic but others sink. I cannot explain it. I recently had a hub that was scoring in the nineties and it was about Thread-waisted wasps! I would never have expected people to be interested in that topic!
That's my experience too, Bard!
I have some hubs that have slowly come up, and others that used to do well that have sunk without trace. I can only tweak them a bit more from time to time and hope that one day they take off.Maybe they never will...sigh....just need to keep writing hubs!
Me, too, Izzy, some I thought might do well have flopped with <100 views in 2 months while I've got one that showed 170 searches per month and I almost didn't write now has 380 visits in the 2 weeks since publishing and it took 4 days to index!
You just can't tell, can you?
I know what you mean, Ely. I mean, I haven't been here that long (2 months), and so far I've published 25 hubs (more to come tonight, though), but I've had blogs over the years (my first blog was self-created because no one had ever heard of blogging yet, so I had a blog before the word "blog" was fashionable). But every time I'd put up an article that I thought "wasn't as good as" something else I wrote, or wasn't as meaningful, or deep, or whatever, people always respond to the things I never think they're going to respond to or comment on things I never think they'll comment on. It just shows me continually that we never know where people are in their lives or what they're thinking, so anything we write can make a difference in someone's life. Take care, folks. Have a great night.
The hubs I've posted in the last week do seem to pick up over time. I know it's a very short time scale, but the first hubs I published are now receiving about 10 views a day, while the latest ones are only receiving 2 views a day. It helps if you get a lot of initial traffic from HubPages, as it means you'll get more traffic from Google in time. Patience is a virtue!
Many of them do, yes.
Many of them do not.
Not many at all ever lose traffic.
As a general rule, my hubs either take off after 3-5 months or are still dead after 8 months. I like it that way, not knowing where my next decent earning hub is coming from.
Looking at my latest 15 hubs and seeing no traffic just makes me think "which one of those is going to be up there rated at 99 and in the top 3 of the google results".
That really excites me. I have recently started seeing Amazon sales from a hubpage which I wrote TEN months ago! I honestly thought that I had flopped with that one, and then all of a sudden four or five sales in the past two weeks.
It really makes you think.
For newbies like me it is good to read all this, it motivates and help us to work harder. I think the problem is people in general start looking for great earnings as soon as the start writing and get burnt out faster. Best wishes David!!
I agree with sofs. I'm new here too and I've learnt that earnings wont come easily. Although in a week i've made £1.25, I know this isn't much and I don't expect significant earnings for a few months.
Yeah only time will tell and input. I think input you do sets up a foundation for the future.(at least I think)
That is itself is exceptional - most folk don't earn anything for weeks! Congratulations
Some do and some don't I hate to give that generic of an answer, but there really isn't a written rule that covers all hubs.
For the most part, old hubs that never performed well continue to not perform well. Ones that performed decently well still do and so on.
Hubs on hot topics will sink and rarely come back, so it is all about finding hubs that are popular regardless of how much time passes.
I think when you have been on here a little while and read the forum posts etc most people's experiences are the same. What does not cease to amaze me is that there is little "untruth" in the forums. When I started I read and read and thought "is this for real" traffic builds, income builds like a snowball? well yes it does. Like everyone we all have hubs that take off from day one but most take a long time to mature!
I have been here 23 months and have no idea!
Some old dead hubs suddenly take off like a rocket, some that used to stay high for many months suddenly drop like a stone.
I do agree that older hubs do better and even make a major comeback sometimes, but I seldom find out why.
My Hubs ebb and flow but in general if something is a success in its first week then it will generally always get some traffic.
What's far more important here is that humans learn - we get far better at writing Hubs!
I've taught my brother well - I thought I was doing well with a 100 visitor a day Hub, but he has a Hub with 300 visits a day!
Yes, some do and then some don't. It's interesting to watch but I do know that the more active I am, the better it is for me (and my hubs). Good luck and always keep learning (and asking questions).
I find those hubs with 2000 word count pick up more traffic as they aged.
Maybe it has to do with the niche. Some of these were my college courseworks.
I have one particular article that went from 15 visits a day after three weeks to 250 visits a day. I am a newbie so it hasn't had months to mature. But google has ranked this article on page one but now has put it back to page six!
Google is a mystery!

My Hubs get very little traffic and earn very little. Even adding my Hubs to Network Sites, did nothing. I am not that knowledgeable about how to increase traffic. I have posted them on Pinterest and Flipboard,...
