nobody looks at my page.is there a way to attract people to it?
Well for one...you've only been active 63 minutes. Secondly, 68 words is not considered a hub. I would suggest actually writing an entire Hub before you concern yourself with learning how to draw traffic to it.
You have put 2 hubs up in 61 minutes after joining HP. I think you might be expecting too much too soon. But, as I'm sure is your intent, perhaps you will lure a few over with this thread on the forums.
You want long term readers, write good content with relevant keywords and traffic will come via search engines. You want local traffic from HP writers, then participate in the forums, be genuine, don't try sneaky or spammy tactics to get people to show up, and, if you come off as interesting and genuine, people of like minds will be curious to see what you write.
Good luck and welcome to HP.
You joined an hour ago?
OK so you joined, wrote about 10 words, none of which seems to be in correct English.
Your on-page optimization is way off mark as your urls do not match your titles.
Are you even 18 years old? That is the minimum age to join HP.
No offence but I am about to flag your hubs as substandard.
Oh you're already flagged Mark - goes without saying LOL
Laughs nervously. But if it gets Paul to read my barbecue hub - I'm cool with that.
Try titling a forum post - Does Paul really know anything? That might do it.
I'm not quite ready to go there yet Motown. Do you know I haven't been banned from the forums yet?
Good, good. I'm with you. I don't like being banned from anything. Why the heck do you think I'm always so darn nice?
Also, you're pretty sincere in here. You're rarely nasty to anyone, and you don't seem to ever say anything that would remotedly be bannable.
Thanks Motown, I try not to get too caught up or involved. It's when one simply must be right that the trouble starts.
Just keep trying...it will happen one day
oh Izzy...be fair...it was 68 words. lol I already flagged them, sorry, couldn't resist.
I went to your hubs to see what you were on about. You have been here for less than an hour and have written two very short blog posts. I don't want to discourage you, but there are some things you need to know about writing on HubPages before you will begin to attract any real traffic.
It takes a while, and some good content, to get noticed here. You need to spend some time reading about what makes a good hub, and visit the learning center, as Cagsil suggested. As well, you need to read other hubs (articles) and leave comments that add value - not just "cool hub"
This is a site for writers, not bloggers. There is a BIG difference in what is expected, including length and content. To start with, you should aim for at least 400 words, unless you are writing poetry hubs.
Your initial tidbits, though colorful and trendy, are not written in good English, and would probably do better posted on a social networking site.
Read lots, learn lots, and be patient - and again, welcome to HubPages. There are lots of friendly folk here who would be happy to give you a helping hand if you are willing to "learn the ropes."
you have been here for 61 minutes, stats are updated on an hourly basis so no, no one is going to show as reading your page!
I suggest that you read the large number of hubs available on Search engine optimisation and keyword research, this helps the search engines pick your work up, also backlinking to other sites can help- again there are lots of hubs about this.
Guys, 68 words is probably fine(for an sms) because most of it was written in text speak and your average text message isn't over 50 words
We must all sound terribly inviting to the poor girl
Izzy, did you see I linked your book store on my new directory site?
No but please post a link. If it later gets removed, well don't worry, I will still have seen it.
Its called Direxit.com, its still in development stages a bit at the moment, although most of the site is operating.. I have a few sites see and SEO thats is dividing my attention on it
Thanks for adding me
Great idea for a site! How do I add more? I didn't see a join button.
Also I was itching to edit your opening intro...sorry about that, but I was, but no doubt you will correct it yourself. First impressions count, make them as perfect as you can.
I'm just checking the into, is there some grammar error or something? I rushed to edit it with keywords see.
You can submit a site by using the submission form in categories
There might be a good reason why both hubs you published were not read. There isn't much to them.
Which tells me you haven't a clue on what you're doing to begin with. Please visit the Learning Center. The link is below.
Specifically, learn "What is a Hub?" before you create another. Secondly, I flagged both your hubs as low quality and not having enough content. People could read your hub and never register as a view, because you didn't write enough content to keep them on the page.

I was hub hopping and had to flag a few hubs for being substandard (word count). One hub had exactly 10 words and 2 photos. There should be a way the system prevents you from publishing a hub like that except if it's in the poetry section.

What are your thoughts on the new affiliate link affiliate link blanket rule? Do you think it will reduce the tsunami of spam hubs that spammer hubbers are publishing or will it make no difference at all?Personally I have had three Hubs flagged and placed in no mans land for affiliate links even...

the following hubs are in the main my poems but it seems that if some action doesn't follow by 25th March they will be unpublished because they don't fit the current mould!...a poem is not like text it takes a concept and enlarges the subject matter in few words and the fewer the better sometimes!...

This forum is a place for you to post hubs that you think are clearly of low quality and need flagging. Committed hubbers should follow this forum and check these hubs posted for quality when they have the time. If a hub has been clearly copied (for example from a PDF file that the plagiarism...

There are a lot of terrible junk hubs here that are damaging to all the hardworking writers that are a major source of good content, be it commercial or otherwise.I would love to see as many hubbers as possible flagging crappy hubs with zero appeal.Lets take out the trash.

The question of whether poetry Hubs should have 400-word minimums came up in this thread a few minutes ago:http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/70203#post1528809I've been puzzling about what to do with poetry Hubs I've found while hopping. I haven't flagged any of them, because poetry is a unique...
