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'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...

I was under the impression that we could only submit one hub every two weeks for niche sites. I submitted a hub and an editor replied with changes that I needed to make before it could be moved. As I'm making those changes, I have received two emails that another two of my hubs are...

I log on every day, and it seems that I always find negative things popping up in the forums. I am sorry that so many people are struggling on HubPages. From SEO issues to having popular hubs unfeatured for a multitude of reasons, it seems very discouraging for any newcomers. When I first got here...

Since I finished the apprenticeship, and after umpteen updates and changes made on HP, my traffic has never picked up. I can't remember the last time I saw any more than 40 views a day. My average at the moment is more like 30. The articles I worked long and hard to produce, sit there doing nothing...

I'm just starting to figure out the URL tracking system. My question - is it better to assign URL trackers to individual hubs? Or by the location of the link? I can see the benefit of knowing how many people are reading individual hubs to see which hubs garner more traffic. ...

I spent some time searching and couldn't find the answer so...Does including a referral tracker destroy the value of the backlink? If so, is using a referral tracker for the interlinking between your hubs greater than the value the backlink will provide?
