Difference In Views; Why?

    I've been blogging here for about...3 months now? Something like that. I can honestly say I haven't hit the ball rolling and I've probably deleted more hub's then I've made. This is because, I'm always getting better at my writing. Then when I look back at my older hubs; I don't like them. They hardly have any views and aren't at a high level.

    But that's not my question. My question is this: How come, my blog about "Fruit Ninja: Arcade Mode" reaches 60+ views per-day, while all my other blogs struggle to get 2-5 views?

    Don't know if this is the right section for this sort of question, but hopefully someone can answer it. Thanks!

      Do you do a  keyword research before you write your hub..  Fruit ninja has a high level of searches and could possibly be converting into Google hits.
      Well we do not blog here, this being an article submission site, we write material that is useful and searched, unlike blogs where you could write whatever  you please.
      Hubs on gaming will always draw traffic.. but i am not sure it helps earn money through Adsense.
      Yes, we all get better and better as we write.

        I've wrote blogs on other games which haven't been successful. Yes, I use quite a large menagerie of keywords (if you mean "tags")

          Tags aren't essentially always keywords .. tags are just used to tag your hub to other similar hubs.. kind of an internal link..
          The learning center has a number of hubs on keywords check them out
          http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/keywords you will find more links on the right side of each hub ..

            Oh right. So can keywords be linked or are they just regular words you use in sentences?

    That topic was one lots of people looked for and apparently not to many had written about. Or possible a popular site linked to you and the traffic came from there.  If you want to know exactly how it happened you need to use google analytics.

      Most of my traffic comes from Google servers around the world.

    Fruit Ninja? Ok, maybe it's better not to ask...

    So I have a few things for you here:

    First, learn all you can about SEO, Keywords, and site promotion.  There are several great tutorials by many great authors here at HubPages - my suggestion is to type in SEO in the search box up above.

    Second, hits on any particular article depend on how well you've optimized the page, how many valid backlinks to it, placement of keywords, and so on.  There may not be that many articles on fruity ninja's, which would explain why you get several hits on that topic.  However, your hub titled "Why do certain places attract more tourists?" has been written about time and time again - at least that's how the search engines view the article.  Tourism is a big topic, and any article about that topic has to have a unique slant to it, as well as targeted keywords, backlinks, etc.

    So taking a look at the hub that was mentioned, your top three keywords(keyphrases) are "in england", "english people", and "machu picchu".  Thinking about your article, do you think that these keywords represent what your article is about?  Further, how many people do you think will find your article based on those keywords?

    This is an issue that a lot of writers just starting out online face.  Half of your job here is writing, the other half is promoting.  As you write, think about how people are going to find your article.  This involves research before you even start.  Begin by figuring out what keywords you want to target.  Several tools exist for this, but one of the most popular is the AdWords Keyword tool.  You can find that here: Keyword Tool

    Keeping those keywords in mind, write your article.  Once you're done and it's published, use any keyword checking tool to double check to make sure that your keywords appear.  Personally, I like SEOQuake, but since it's only for Firefox a lot of people don't use it. Simply type "keyword checker" in Google and it should give you a plethora of tools to use.

    Of course, there's a lot more to the process than that, but that's really a brief overview.  The more you learn, the higher number of visits you'll get.  I think your hubs look great, it's just the SEO part of things that you'll have to do some in-depth research on.

    Good luck!
