    I try to post hubs rather regularly...I try to provide interesting, original, entertaining content.
    But what am I doing wrong?
    My traffic is low, and adsense earnings are $0.00 most days
    I Dont expect to get rich quick but some earnings would be nice...

    Any Critiques would be appreciated! I'll check back later.

      "I try to post hubs rather regularly..."

      You say this and you only have 17 hubs after 7 months. Thats just a little more than 2 every 2 weeks, I wouldnt say that is rather regular. Also no matter how good your content is you will not rank highly without backlinks. As-well as backlinks you will need to look at how many people are searching for your "keywords".  You can find this out by going to the google keyword tool and typing in your keywords, make sure you have the box that says [exact] selected.

      Hope that helps.

    I would look for hubbers who try and write often about getting traffic to hubs. I have found many hubs that provide information to do this and often inside those hubs there are some very interesting gems that are truly priceless information to know.

    For instance, have you ever heard of pinging a Google search page on your profile? No - and I suspect many others have not either.

    Most specialist seo's do not even know how to do this right.

    See, that is an example of a hidden gem to get huge amounts of interest generated to your hubs.

    How do you do this?

      There are really 2 methods, write a lot and get organic traffic, or write a little bit but backlink a lot, or if you are super ambitious, do both.

      On my 700 hubs without doing any backlinking or cross linking at all, I average about 200 views per day.   Right now, I like writing better than linking.  Someday, I will have enough hubs and then just go back and start linking them.

        I were just had 34 published hubs and were getting near 250 views everyday (HP team have made them unpublished due to poor English and am agree with their decision so trying to improve my English and hope i will get my views back) I think 700 hubs is really a great milestone.You should target on linking now and am sure it will increase your views and earnings.Am not an expert but still just thought to share my views.
