Got a traffic falling icon, wondering how to put the spice back in it?
You've only been here ten days so this is not surprising.
After a hub is published, you'll get internal views (from followers, the fact your hub is listed as new etc.)
After a few days these internal views will drop off. It will take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks for search engines to pick up the hub, and then usually your search engine traffic will grow over time.
Some people say it takes 6-9 months for hubs to get their best traffic, while other, older members say that their hub traffic peaked after several years.
Here is an example of the growth of one of my hubs which is now over a year old:
Notice how it had very minimal traffic for the first six months.
Thanks for the input. Man that's depressing!!!...W
Don't be depressed! If you learn about SEO and keywords, you'll often find untapped niches that you can write about and earn well from in a matter of weeks - although these too will increase with time.
Look at it as goal - after six months you'll start to see some reasonable earnings from things you wrote now. So write as much as you can now - because you'll be glad you did by then!
Thanks, I'm thinking of writing a hub on time travel and jump to the future and see what I should be writing on. Appreciate the advice, Good luck, looking forward to heaaring from you in the future...W
Personally I don't worry too much about those up/down falling traffic icons. They seem to fluctuate up and down almost at random.
In general if you want to increase traffic on a hub... after a hub has been up for some time, go back and edit it by adding more content to it. After it has time to sit, usually you can think up more things to say as time passed by. So just added to the hub to make it longer. That tends to give your hub a little bit of new life.
they have all made exceelent points, in many cases only now on my older hubs, which I have edited, is the traffic really increasing to each of them. WritLit is correct, it does exactly that, but it is depressing I amsure.
Truly I am not that depressed, kinda goes with the way things have been going in my life...hurry up and wait. Thanks for taking the time to give an old hack some advice. I hope all is well with you and continues to be so far into the future, Good luck...W

I have consistently heard that hubs need "time" to mature. I do not quite understand this concept because some hubs do well right out of the gate, while others languish forever and never gain...

Why do you think the hub with the highest score was scored higher than your others? Interested to know.

Hi all,I've been here a month now and have 20 hubs, but when I read some of the forum posts I am worried that my traffic is low. I have had around 680 views total for all of my 20 hubs which averages about 6 per day for...
