I would love advice on how to get more page views , and how to make the most out of hubs. Thxs
My best tips are: Have fun and just keep hubbing about what you love and you will do great. I am also new.
glamgal1...as a member for seven months, I agree with you. I want more followers. And to create BETTER, more interesting hubs.
Don't write on over saturated topics (like Justin Beiber). I don't believe entertainment news does all that well, especially if the same information is posted in different places.
And some advice, you have to make sure that the photographs you use are copyright free.
Thanks so much, Uninvited Writer. That makes a world of sense and I do...use copyright free photos...which I have to run sometimes at 1/4 size...they watermark and haze up at full-width, but I get lucky on some artwork sites and get those great photos that can run BIG...those I like. Thanks again for the wise tips. KA
I found that the way to increase my page views was, obviously to write hubs that GRABBED the reader from the start. I'd also comment on their comments, Then I also 'followed' their hubs. You can find out WHO is following you by signing in clicking on 'MY ACCOUNT then clicking on the tab for FOLLOWING. On the left, there is a menu of hubs you follow, hubbers you follow, topics you follow.
I didn't know this was there until several days ago. I had to commit hubbers I follow and HUBS I follow to memory and then I'd forget! If you visit other peoples pages and hubs and make comments, you'll find that they come to your pages. Also, in your profile, you can link to other articles you've written. I understand that the TOS say that this is the only place you can plug your other articles, so make 'em stand out and an interesting, fun profile! Good luck and I hope others who have been around longer than I chime in!
Read the FAQ's page and visit the Learning Center-
If you learn abut KEYWORDS then the traffic will come.
A keyword is any search term that brings a person to your hub. You can use the free Google keyword tool to find how many views keywords are getting and find some that don't have a lot of information online. Use those keywords in your title and URL and tags for best results.
Welcome to Hubpages.
Being active in forums may help as other hubbers may go to visit your hubs, although outside views are more powerful with greater earning potential. It takes time to increase your views.
1. Focus on keyword strength
2. Target niches which are famous
3. Have a minimum of 300-500 words for first few hubs
4. Do not expect too much traffic in the first 15 days
5. Add pictures which are relevant to the topic
6. Use the tags feature in hubpages to help search engines find your hub via keywords in your hub and the tags provided
7. Keep reading and commenting on other people's stuff so that they get back to your hubs and a mutual camaraderie ensues.
I recently posted a hub on the effects of Google panda update to its algorithm. Hope all these points are useful.
I'm also a brand new hubber and this information is really helpful.
One thing I am a little confused about though is the scores, I have a score of 3 next to my avatar and a score of 64 next to my hub. Am I correct in thinking that 3 is my personal score and 64 is the score for my hub? And is that a reasonable score for a first hub?
I have a huge supply of fairy hub dust and for a small fee I can sprinkle it on your account.... then you have to sing about things that make you happy for 24 hours and hey presto...
Just contact me direct for your sprinkling...
Just chill. People here are friendly and engaging. They are very encouraging to fellow hubbers.
There are many hubs with lots of great advice. Look for ones about how to write great hubs, how to earn money online, how to get more page views etc. Some people have been here a long time and there's lots of free advice in many people's hubs.
Look up all the articles on HubPages for a wealth of information on traffic. Keywords help. Welcome!
Great advice all round, but OP was made 5 months ago, so I hope glamgal1 has found much of this out through experience by now
I for one thought she said something that indicated she was a new hubber. FORGIVE
I thought she was a new Hubber as well. I was going to suggest she read all my hubs as a way of increasing page views. By now, however, she would be on to me and know that that would only increase MY page views...

I've been on HubPages for over a year now. I have written 253 hubs (I deleted some) and just recently passed the 100,000 views mark. I think I should have more views by now considering the number of hubs and the amount of time I spend here. I know it is more about quality than quantity,...

I've been on here for 9 months and followed all the advice from the learning centre, forums and hubs from the best hubbers. I earned the first $24.00 in the first month and I'm only $1.00 ahead for the next eight. What am I doing wrong? All help will be greatfully received.

I know that this is the most asked question here, but I'd still really appreciate it if anybody answered.I've been on Hubpages for about 6 months now, and I've just published my 7th Hub, and I'm starting to write a few more. As of right now, I have 239 total views, and each Hub has roughly 36...

I am kind of tired of this whole traffic thing. Everyone else claims great success, and I can't get a view. I have only 2 views today, and 23 views for the whole week.I have tried everything to get traffic, and nothing is working for me. I even joined several social sites, and my traffic has only...

As fast as I'm trying to fix up hubs that are unfeatured, the problem isn't that there is something wrong with them, but that they are being unfeatured as a result of lack of traffic. Isn't this short sighted? Some topics just don't get that much traffic. It's not because they are badly written,Is...

I've been doing a lot of thinking about the types of services we offer Hubbers and how to help Hubbers improve.A few services that have been suggested- grammar and spell checking- suggesting edits- providing images/media upon request- formatting help (breaking hubs into multiple text capsules,...
