    What should I write about to get the most page visits per day?

      I could care less how many pageviews I get. I write about what I am passionate about. If it resonates with others , then that is a gift !If you do not have passion for writing , that is obvious.People can always spot a phony. Writing is an artform and commerce and art rarely intersect. I am far from the best writer here. But I say write about what you care about. Best of luck !

        Surely the phrase is "I couldn't care less"?

        Else, that suggests that you do care, at least a little bit?

          Ryan like anybody I must admit I gotta little bit of an ego. So yeah if I was getting 3 page views a month I would probably have to do a little soul searching. But for me the money factor here is not that significant since I pretty much make nothing. I just feel it imperative to communicate my average man's view of the world , and more then that have a little fun here too.

          Because if the process isn't fun, what's the point ?

        This is really good advice.

      People who know that secret won't tell you!  They don't want other writers competing with them.  You need to do your own research. 

      Alternatively, follow tony0724's advice.  I write about what I love - dance - and although I don't make a fortune, I do make some income.  If you're passionate and knowledgeable about something, you're bound to find readers who will appreciate your work.

      I don't imagine anyone will provide a specific answer to this question, like "Write about Italian food." Because that would challenge their chance at profiting off of the topic.

      Write about what you can write about well. Hopefully you can learn about keyword research and you will find a lucrative keyword in a topic you're interested in.

      Or .... you could just write "Buy Stuff" and insert about 80 Amazon links, which seems to be a viable option.

    Hey Malcolm,
    This varies an immense amount depending upon what kind of audience you are targeting. A niche hub about a video game could get a tremendous amount of traffic and so could an article about plus size celebrities. It's all about looking up the keywords in Google!

    It's also difficult to give you a straight answer because I don't write about every single topic to tell you which ones get the most traffic.

    If you are trying to make money through Amazon or Ebay, stick with popular products of the moment. Justin Bieber is extremely popular right now so you could write about Bieber products! etc.

    Hope that helps!

    Do keyword research. Find topics that have low competition but high traffic. There is no 'magic' topic - any good topics fill up fast as soon as people hear about them.

    Remember it is not always about the traffic, but more about the value of the traffic. 

    I would rather have 100 visitors ready to spend money than 1000 visitors who were not.

    Yes take not of thisisoli point. The keyword we are targeting should have been buying keyword or it has some market value.

    I'd agree with those saying there is no right answer to this one.

    But I can say that topics that state an extreme point of view can draw allot of attention. It works allot the same way the news does. They report mainly on disasters. It is something no one really wants to hear, but they get hooked anyway. hmm

      Yeah you are right..
      but they will not sell stuff for you nor is that kind of traffic constant. these hubs will be short lived and the interests wane pretty fast..

        I can pretty well agree with you there. A good point.

        Though I suppose it could work if you were creative enough to find topics to really start a fire going every time. As well as not over doing it and keeping up with updating on the outside of HP as well.

        It can be pretty touchy, but it can draw allot of public interest. That is why there was a very extreme spokesman for basket ball. He drew in allot of publicity because he always caught you off guard with his extreme comments. Unfortunately he went over board with one of his comments and was fired.

        So be warned if you wish to go the extreme route. You'd be playing a bit with fire, even if there is a such thing as free speech in the U.S.

    I've only been here a short time, but I write about all sorts of things and so far, by far and away, my "politics" hubs get the most attention... on average 3 to 4 times more views than any of my other hubs, as it's a pretty heated subject right now, lol.

    Although... fair warning, most of those hits are from right here in HubPages (which is fine with me) and aren't likely to generate much in the way of revenue (also fine with me).

    Write something unique and can be profitable.

    Some niches get many page views but they don't last long like gaming. Best way to get more page views is concentrating on long tail keywords. We can't usually target main keywords as they are difficult to compete. Write lengthy articles with a keyword focus. Then eventually you will be able to get lots of page views not only for the main keyword but also other numerous long tail keywords.

      How many times do you repeat the keywords in an ariticle for best effect in regards to search engine pickup?  I have just started but there are times when I'm writing where I feel like I'm just repeating the key words and not really creating a well written document.
