I came across a hub about sticking to a particular niche of interest. Say for instance i write about SEO i should only stick to seo so that its easy for my audience to find me. Could that be why I do not get traffic to my hub as I write about a lot of topics I have interest in. Please help I need advice on improving traffic. thanks
Welcome to hubpages. The best way to use this forum is to post a link to a specific hub that you'd like to have reviewed.
In my opinion? Don't stick to a niche unless you know tons of stuff about seo, keywords and backlinks. If you don't know, basically.
"Throw mud at a wall and see what sticks."
So basically, write on a whole range of topics. When you find a topic that does well, write more on that topic but from a different angle.
Each hub is, to google, one stand alone page. Visitors it sends to your hubs may never view another hub you've written. So each hub has to be good enough to both get search engine hits and also to.
I only took a quick look at your hubs. There's one problem that immediately jumps out at me.
All your topics are very mainstream. Unless you write an article that is in depth, stunning, has great information, length, pictures and more, don't even think of ranking well for a topic as widely written about as "How to lose weight" or "Black evening dresses". You need to find things that get less traffic but also have less competition - you should probably learn about keyword research for a start...
(As a hypothetical example: You may not be able to rank well for a highly searched topic such as cars. But if you try and rank for something like "blue striped cars" there's a lot better chance of getting hits.)
Thank you for taking the time to look. Funny you should say, the most traffic i have had was even on the black evening dress. luck i guess.
- For the length, i read a hub that says btw 350 and 400 is good enough so that your viewer does not lose interest
-where can i get more info on the keyword research. thank you for your time
Type 'google keyword tool' into google. Goto the first link. Always search using the 'exact' button ticked. It's best to target keywords with between 5000-15000 hits a month.
Hubs should generally be between 400-1500 words in my experience.

Hi,I've signed up and am ready to start making hubs in my specialised subject, but I was wondering what the earning potential of hubbig (if that's a word) actually is. I realise it all depends on how attractive your pages are and how good they are etc, but what are people actually earning? I am not...

I came across this piece of advice in the first part of the Learning Center:"Write to educate your readers on your topic: create content on subjects that you are an expert; don't create content for search engines, a link, or to sell a product. Hubs that are written for readers have a higher...

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?

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...
