I've gotten over 800 page views on this site today (which is about 100 more than yesterday). I think some of my choice hubs are maturing.
To celebrate the occasion, I'm going to post two tips for newbies:
- How-to guides tend to bring more traffic than other types of hubs, according to my personal experience. If you're just writing for fun and don't care about the $$, then disregard this tidbit.
- Keyword research is pretty good, but generally, if you write good quality hubs, word of mouth will do wonders on its own.
Now, I'm going to go watch a movie. Take care and have fun!
Winterfate, Congrats!! Celebrate, party away you deserve it! Thank you for the great tip and I will take the cue..
Good job! I think some of mine are maturing too... plus the Christmas rush is starting.
Totally agree with your tips - if you write a really good quality piece it can still get lots of traffic if people organically link to it.
I agree with you. In the beginning I write anything that is appeared in my mind, but after read several tips in the forum I try to change my strategy before writing a hub, I do the keywords research first, but it make my hubs got a little traffic. For comparison, my hubs that I've written without doing keywords research are get traffic from search engine, but why after I do a keywords research search engine didn't bring a reader for my hubs.
Are you doing keyword research correctly?
You need to use the 'exact' search and make sure there isn't high competition.
Those spikes are always great. Do you know why it happened? Did you get some good organic backlinks?
@Mistress Cleanse: Well, I did a keyword search for my hub with the most traffic and it appears that I have no competition for what I'm writing in
(the irony is that I didn't keyword research for that particular hub. Haha).
To be quite honest, I have no idea if I'm getting organic backlinks. I would assume so though.

Hi All, My traffic has been flat over the past week or two. Admittedly, I haven't promoted any of my hubs over that time period. That being said, I would like to get some steady and sustainable traffic. Any tips or promotional platforms that are working well for any of you?I currently have a few...

My daily earnings have dropped drastically -- WHY? Is it because HP has pulled ads on my hubs due to the "unfeatured" hubs, which are mostly poems? Are poems not worthy of being featured and getting daily earnings? And WHY does HP decide what should or should not be featured?...

I've read a lot about the importance of doing keyword research, but then you also get the impression that to really do that research properly can take a long time unless you get lucky early on or really know what you are doing. So I wonder, with some people pumping out huge amounts of hubs, are...

I been on a couple of days and pretty much all my traffic is from hubpages. I get a couple from digg but that is about it. How are people getting their traffic from google and other search engine?

How do I figure out why or where a spike in HP traffic to one of my hubs is suddenly coming from? I'm not complaining, but it's curious, and I'm wondering if there's some sort of glitch or something.

There are tons of hubs on keyword selection and the various tools one could use to make the process easier.But, like most things 'net - they are mostly copies of copies of copies or poorly strewn together theories by intermediate writer-marketers ..So I ask... what was truly masterful, what made...
