So far I have written mainly hobby pages on mythological and unusual animals. I tried one sales page on acne treatments. Interestingly this page comes dead last on all metrics. Too much competition perhaps? While several of my animal pages are getting good ad clicks.
It made me wonder who, in general, people see their deliberate 'sales' pages versus hobby pages performing? For me it seems that niche pages will little competition get both more traffic and more clicks, not matter how 'non-commercial' the topic may seem.
It is possible to get good traffic to both, just as it is possible to fail miserably at both.
I just took at look at my lowest traffic hubs, I had some with 0 page views, some with 1, 2, 3, 4 page views in the past THIRTY DAYS!!
I spent a lot of time on some of that stuff! I have just been through it and added a word to titles, e.g. adding 'Best' or 'How To' or a whole new phrase. I will see if that changes anything.
Your post makes me feel better, Ryan. I get concerned when I see a few hubs with 0 visits in a week - I don't have any with 0 (or even only 1) in a month!
Of course, I also don't have 500 hubs! (that might make a little difference )

I always assume (I think correctly) that HP appreciates feedback, so here's my 2 cents on that:I am happy to see the content appear on the Hub, and I'm hoping the intention here is remove the pages...

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...

But I am wondering why there seems to be competition in the real google world and no competition showing for it in the external keyword tool world?

I thought that the questions would be adding to the hub, thereby making the hub rank better for certain terms. However, that's not the case from what I see. The questions show on the page but not the answers, so the content of the answer is not really on the page, therefore it does not add to the...

I've been writing here for quite a few years, I go back to the ancient era before the 'featured' 'not featured' declension.I have found that 'fixing' a Hub which is not featured is a total waste of time, as in a day or so, after a fix, it is back to unfeatured. I did an experiment and I can...
