      Don't worry about this too much yet. Concentrate on writing more hubs, and be assured that traffic will rise accordingly.

      When i first started, i realised that the secret is in the numbers. So, in essence, writing constantly and consistently for now will eventually take you there.

      Visit the learning centre here on HubPages. You'll be amazed at what you will learn there.

      You will get there. All that's required is patience and perseverance. Then you'll start to see the income come in. Very slowly initially, but as you write more hubs, it'll increase with time.

      Just stay on it. smile

      Best of luck. smile

    Write more hubs.  New hubs get a push from 'hub hopping'.  Steady traffic only comes from having more hubs and more organic traffic.

    The only thing you are missing is experience at HubPages.

    Your first traffic will likely come from hubbers either hub hopping or checking out something new.  That will drop off in a few days (which is exactly what you are seeing).  If you have done your keyword research and SEO organic traffic from search engines will slowly bring your traffic back up.  That could take months or years, however, so don't become discouraged and keep writing.

    Hub scores are variable, and often change for no apparent reason.  As long as the hub score is above 40 you have no worries.

      Where do I put these keywords in?  Do you mean in the title?

        keywords = what search engines look for
        First place to use them is in your tags
        Also use keywords in your capsule titles, and (sparingly) in your text

        There are some great articles in the learning center that will help you.
        Just click the link for it at the bottom of the page.

        Good luck to you.

            It is called Search Engine Optimization (SEO) and there are hundreds of hubs written about it.  Do a search and some research on the subject - I suggest hubs from Darkside.

            As redelf says, keywords need to me in capsule titles and the body of text.  They also need to be in the hub title, URL and summary - these are very important.

    Listen to what the other hubbers have to say and don't worry so much about the hubscore, it will bounce up and down. Just focus on great written hubs. smile

    My hub score drops sometimes, but I don't let it bother me. Just write consistently, at least once a week and use ways to get traffic. Such as forum posts, commenting on hubs, following hubbers and using sites like Redgage to showcase your work!smile

    Great encouragement to just stay with it despite "ratings". I have to remind myself I didn't come to Hubpages for a Hubscore. Lol, I didn't even know articles had a score when I signed up. But, it is so easy to get caught up in an "approval" mindest seeking that instant gratification of a high number. But, as long as I am writing consistent articles that reflect who I am, are improving my writing skills and are acceptable to me when I lay my head on my pillow at night, I really try not to let individual hubscores worry me. But, thanks for the push to just stay the course.

    I got worried about this too. I'm new at Hub Pages and I was concerned when I started noticing my hub score and traffic was dropping. Thanks for the helpful insights and advice here, it is reassuring. I followed the advice and focused more on my writing. The quality of the hubs and the positive feedback it generates appears to be the key and experience gained by constant writing will help achieve that.
