I've noticed that on the days I regularly check my hubs my traffic is a lot higher than if I don't check. This leads me to believe that a complex algyrhythm must be using my visits as a back link generator through an RSS feed. I am experimenting with not visiting today and my traffic has dropped to zero.
Just thought I'd put the word out, in case any one else has experienced a zero traffic problem.
There is a way to set it up in AdSense that when you check on your own stuff it won't count as a click. I read a Hub to learn how to do it... http://hubpages.com/hub/Google-Analytic … -Filtering this way you can see honest traffic and not get banned from Google AdSense or any other platform.
Every time you open one of your own hubs it counts as a view!
Thankyou. That information comes as a bit of a disappointment.
Don't be disappointed. Traffic will come, I looked at some of your hubs and the topics seem fine. The hubs are well written, have patience, it took me a few months to start to see search engine traffic.
Now it comes pretty steady and rises every month.
Welcome to Hubpages, you are off to a great start.
Thank you, it's very nice of you to say that. I am struggling a bit with finding the right way to marry my need for humour - with the ability to sell - plus find a niche to stick it in.
I do love Hubpages though, absolutely love it.
You should read some of shadesbreath's hubs.
Thankyou. I am a bit abashed. That's pretty good stuff.
I thought you would appreciate his work.
He is an incredible writer, and when I read through your hubs he immediately came to mind.
traffic will come gradually. you can get more traffic by being more active with the community like hubhopping and commenting. And doing good keyword research and if possible some back linking will bring traffic from search engines.
Thanks. I know I need to be patient. My fear is that I will be patient and still nothing will happen. I could end up writing tons of stuff that never earns a dime. I don't want to get six months down the road and discover I'm on the wrong road.
Are you having fun?
I just read three of your hubs and you certainly seem to be. Will you earn money from those? I do not know, but it was enough that I will click 'Follow' and, trust me, I do not do that very often, so I hope you keep on having fun no matter if you earn or not.
By the way, do NOT reciprocal follow. Seriously: I do not think well of people who do that.
Eleven days. Look in the mirror and repeat that.
There are potential readers/followers who have not even signed into HP in the past eleven days, never mind had an opportunity to notice you.
Keep plugging. I like your icon.
I liked my icon until I saw Shades illustrations. And then I thought about my little stick drawings. Oh dear.
If I come across you again, as I think I might - then may I click on the dreaded follow thing?
Not sure what you mean by plugging, I just happen to chance by here on a 24/7 basis.
You may if you have REASON to. That is, if you really want to be notified when I post my next piece of drivel, you have my permission to follow.
I just don't like it when I follow someone and they follow back out of some wrong headed idea of being polite. It makes me think less of them.
Oh, and if you think you have poor artistic skills, you should look at mine!
Let's have a bad drawing contest, shall we?
Here's one of mine.
Think you can do better, umm, worse?
And just one more:
I challenge you do outdo me, Mark. Outdo in a bad way, that is.
Those are both excellent Mr. Unix. I am going to totally wimp out of the challenge because...
1. It's very nearly tea time in Euroland.
2. It is a surprisingly complex process I have of physically drawing a 'picture' and then scanning it in and then rotating and cropping it and then transferring to a library.
3. I will let my previous body of work speak for itself on this occasion.
Actually I may get back to you on this.
I have a simple (albeit somewhat expensive) solution. I do all my drawing on my iPad using very inexpensive software.
I have no problem spending your money for you.
You failed to catch both my engaging smile and the twinkle in my astigmatic eyes. Your color choices are excellent, though.
I appear to have just eaten something quite awful. And you certainly could have taken some artistic license and bumped my hub score some.
And why do i appear to be wearing a dress? My wife does have one that color, but it would never fit me.
I know - you missed the prominent Adam's Apple, right?
Hey, I did my best and risked total public shame and humiliation! I needed an idea quickly, didn't have one, can't draw and used some old colouring pencils. You want engaging smile and twinkles? With these skills? Sheesh.
Patience, Mark - it will happen with the quality you have shown in your hubs.
If you're interested, I recently wrote a hub about my first few months on HP and tried to address some of the very things you are concerned about. I shared many of your concerns but have learned to work through them. Go to school here on HP - there is an incredible wealth of information on how to become a successful writer here and much of it is really valuable.
Earning money online isn't easy and it isn't quick, even on such a site has HP has proven to be, but it is certainly possible. Understand that time is a natural part of the process here and just can't be avoided.
You will have "failure" hubs here (everyone does), but judging from your writing you will also have many successes if you only keep at it.
At the risk of sounding really self serving, do check out that hub. I had many disappointments but many encouragements as well and describe some of them. You will see poor traffic days and even weeks (I certainly have!) and the same thing goes for income, but as has been pointed out the overall picture is one of steady growth.
Thankyou, and I will check it out. After tea...
As promised I did check out your hub. It was excellent and interesting. I liked your approach to the subject matter, and I feel more enthusiastic as a result of reading it. Thanks.
I have same problem in the start and now able to get few visits to my hubs. Everyone says patience! patience! So no alternative newbies have to wait.
@LillyGrillzit.Oh thanks a lot for that piece of information.Visisted the website which you had mentioned and had many of my doubts cleared!Thanks to this forum too!!
