      More than likely bad key word research, but I am no expert by any means... but I don't think too many people seach for "online nutrition degree"

      Have you put a link to it on your FB page? or twittered it?

      Kirstenblog is right. Read what Kirstenblog wrote and don't tack an inch from that.

      Good luck.

    One option (this is a lot of work) is to write a few closely related hubs, link them up together and of course tweet and post to FB. The idea being that one of the hubs might hit on a good keyword and bring in traffic, once there you can direct them to your other hubs on the same topic. It is also wise to say now that hubs take a bit of time to mature, some of my hubs got next to no traffic for the first few months, only to start bringing in traffic after being around awhile.

      Although I am not the orignal poster, I would like to thank you for this advice. I have been around almost a month was discouraged about how few outside hits I have been getting. glad to know it may take months.

    There are only about 30 searches per day for 'online nutrition degree', that's not a lot. Even if you ranked number one and all of them would visit your page, that's what you would get.

    You have to decide if you're selling your reader about an online nutrition degre OR telling your reader what good nutrition is and why it's important. Your first sentence is critical both in search engine ranking and customer decision to stay.

    If your hub is about getting an online nutrition degree, then that should be your focus and you should be explaining why online education is the way to go in this field. Not telling them what good nutrition is or why that's important.

    With more focus your hub will have a better chance at long-tail keywords. Oh and your graphic isn't working. Even if it was, it's way too big. Usually it's not a good idea to start a webpage that you want to make $$$ with, with a large graphic.

    I am no experienced hubber but Nellie makes a great deal of sense. Your first sentence discusses a topic speperate from your hubs main focus. Perhaps a seperate hub on the importance of good nutrition and reowrk the first sentence to focus on the importance of an online degree in nutrition.

    I have heard it said over and over that people scan content on  the net and when I am scanning online c√≥ntent I like to see chunks of text-little caspules I can scan easily and get the idea. You have lists but the reader must read all the text to get any further information. Perhaps you could make smaller chucks of text which correspond to the listed points. Play with the capsules, bold/font and the impact of your layout could also be greatly improved which may grab some readers and make them want to stay and read.

        Here is your competition for the phrase online nutrition degree.

        Interesting thing to note: all your competition are PR 3 or more on the page that is indexed. Your top competitor has 1,500 external backlinks, and many of the others have hundreds or thousands of backlinks. None of your competitors has less than 1 external backlink, and the competitors in the top five spaces all have hundreds of backlinks in total.

        Really, out of the people on the first page for your keyword term, there is only one (the bright hub one) that would be reasonably easy to outrank.

        But, even if you outrank that site, you won't get many hits on a 1000 odd search a month term at 9th place.
