Awesome. I just revised many of my hubs. Fixed tags, keywords, and titles.
I added referral trackers, thanks to darkside's great instructional hub. http://hubpages.com/hub/trackers
And links as suggested by Marisa Wright here http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/68055#post1489959
I really do think it's the trackers and links that are improving my traffic. Two hubs that never got more than 5 views a day, if that, are stretching toward three digits today.
It was hard work, but work I really enjoyed.
Thanks to all of the people who are so generous with their help and support. I hope to be able to return the favor someday.
That all may well be true, but simply changing a hub makes it fresh content in the eyes of Google, and that in and of itself will give it a bump in traffic. . . .while at the same time, our hubs always keep their publication date, making them more favored "aged content."
Of course I'm only telling you things that I've read in several places, and they seem to be true, as I've went back and modified most of my hubs at one point or another, and probably will continue to do so as well.
I like playing with the titles and title tuner, and I KNOW that that plays a huge part in our traffic. Even if I totally mis title something, given enough time, it will always present the proper title for the content in the stats "keyword" section.
Hubpages practically gives us every opportunity to create great content, it's all right there for us to go out and make it with, now we've just got to learn the rest of the tricks, and do it.

I have been pinning my Hubs on Pinterest for a few months now, and about 70 of my Hubs are now pinned. I have also had several of my pins to Hubs shared by others on Pinterest. Despite all of this, I do not have one single click from Pinterest showing up in my HubPages traffic...

Hey folks. I'm a long time member here and an SEO guy by trade. I love this platform and want to support it. I've been digging into Panda data, and I have a few suggestions. Let's work together and 'right the ship!' 1) Start a brand new account today. Fresh content is what Hubpages needs. Google...

Any advice for a new Hubber on how to increase traffic to my hubs? I am interested in any and all ways people have had success with this. So far aside from being active on HubPages I am pinning my articles to my Pinterest but still have very low traffic. I understand that I am new and increasing my...

I used to be totally addicted to HP, couldn't wait to log on everyday to see what was happening, who and what was popping in the forums, what interesting hub made HOTD, and of course, how my stats and earnings were progressing. I looked forward to the rush I got from clicking "publish"...

I've now written 52 Hubs but have less than 300 views from Google. I've read and taken the advice about titles, key words, niches, and high interest topics but am going nowhere fast. Is this the way it is or am I doing something horribly wrong? It seems like I'm missing a huge piece of the puzzle...

Trying to see if I understand this correctly. The trackers only work from outside of HP, correct? So if I have a new affiliate tracker on my profile page or in a hub, it's worthless to me, right? And if I link from one of my hubs to someone else's via a traffic tracker, again, it does me no good,...
