I thought I was doing good, but my traffic has continued to fall lately. It seems a lot of my hubs get 0 views a day, but certain ones will go up to 30. I sent multiple back links to every hub and interlinked a lot of them. I am determined to continue writing, but I feel I have failed by some degree.
I would like to keep my moral as high as possible, but I feel that if I continue to write I am going to have hubs that do not do well consistently and only some do pretty good. I don't know If I should focus on writing more or sending "more" backlinks". I want to succeed I just feel I am potentially doing or not doing something. I know I can get more traffic, but I feel I could do better than I am currently or better than I will in the future.
Any suggestions on dead hubs? (At least I think some are dead lol)
Actually, I have the opposite situation and my traffic is increasing on a constant rate on HP. Some hubs fall, some raise but overall situation looks positive to write more
I would suggest taking more backlinks to your under-performing hubs. Backlinks will not affect in a short term, but by time, you will notice the difference.
My strategy is to write above average quality hubs and getting a few backlinks on "not crowded" niches and "exact" products. This generally brings very targeted traffic and I have around 8% Amazon conversions
Have you looked at the traffic graph on your profile? It looks to me like overall your traffic is actually increasing.
Not every hub is going to be successful. You can try adjusting the title or promoting it a bit more, but I think your time would be better spent studying the common factors in your hubs that were successful, and making more hubs like those.
you are not alone, 23 hubs and daily 15,20 views at total. I'm still writing. Some say by time things improve.
Note that your own views count in your total pageview count. So perhaps as you were writing, editing, etc. your hub you were artificially inflating your views. This could explain some of the discrepancy, perhaps.
Traffic ebbs and flows like the tide. It was mentioned before by Relache (I think-maybe Marissa? ) that it could also depend on the season. I wouldn't fret too much.
Yeah I suppose, I am just going to keep writing and sending backlinks even if it pushes me into the ground. I will not stop and will not give up. Hopefully my ongoing efforts will pay off. Need to set some goals next would be 200 hubs, but under what time constraint i will have to evaluate.
Joys of time management I know, lol. Just pick a day or two for a hub, another day or two for promoting, another for reading and commenting, another for 'other'. really helps to set a rhythm and still have fun.

Hi Anybody..I need help.I am probably am asking stupid questions. If you feel that I am, just ignore me. I've been here since late June, and thanks to all the advice I took early on, I have a good hubber score (ranges 95-100).I have 14 hubs,(or 15..can't remember..)and I like what I have done...

Article for discussion. I know that this recent development has already been mentioned by some hubbers in forums. But I am now wondering if this might be the main reason why we are seeing the current traffic plunges for many hubbers? See link...

After 6 months on the site i've started the really wonder how many backlinks is a reasonable number to any hub, and really to a hub becoming successful? Or is it simply a lottery.What kind of figures do other hubbers consider?

So far I've mostly been relying on writing good content and trusting people to find it, but after a spike this summer, my traffic here at HP has collapsed to some rather depressing levels, considering the number of hubs I have, and I've been thinking maybe it's time to start putting more effort...

I suppose I'm just trying to find out if I'm the only one with this particular "backlinking disability" (maybe it should be a new, officially-named, mental disorder, "BDD" - Backlinking Disability Disorder). This thread is part venting, part hoping someone can point out...
