Can someone please give me some tips on how to improve this hub?
http://hubpages.com/hub/Isearch---new-s … ble-online
I don't know what to do anymore!
Know that even though its not allowable to post links to our hubs in the forums, I clicked on your link and read your hub, and my goodness, I can't believe how very easy it is to invade someone's privacy!
Actually, this is the one Forum where it's permitted. It was set up because so many of us wanted a place where we could request feedback without committing spammage.
And yeah, it's scary!
Your Hub gives excellent information. It is relatively short, but seems about the right length for the topic.
I'm no traffic expert, but some Hubs will take off almost before you publish them, and others sit for a few days before anyone sees them. More serious Hubs seem to have that slow-growth tendency.
Thanks for sharing your thoughts on this. By the comments that you and other hubbers have done the problem is not on the content itself but more on the exposure I can do of the hub and it's subject. Unfortunately, I'm not a traffic expert as well
What are you doing to promote the hub?
The "if you build it they will come" theory often does not work as well as some simple and targeted promotion.
Well, i posted it on Digg and Mixx, altough I don't have visits from there. I'm not very good with SEO stuff and keywords. Maybe I don't have the right ones for this particular topic, or maybe it's just people isn't very interesting in knowing.
What do you mean with simple and targeted promotion? Does that involve posting it on more social networks or altering the title or something like that?
Thanks for the feedback, by the way! HubHug to you
I think that the Hub itself looks OK and it seems like you're positioned really well on search:
I just think that the search for the topic matter for this Hub is pretty low right now, which results in you getting low results, too.
Keep on writing and building great Hubs, not every topic that you write on will be a huge success, but once you get more Hubs written and pushed out to the web, you'll see a good jump in your traffic numbers. I wouldn't too much about this particular Hub - just keep on writing!
I don't claim to be an expert in these things but in my short time here at HubPages I've found having a good title is key.
Your title "Invasion of Privacy: Intelius iSearch - online stalking tool" doesn't have many words a person would type in a search engine. Plus, your title implies a hub that's about a (dry?) civil rights privacy issue when really what you are doing is reviewing a cool search engine.
If you had gone with the title like "A better way to search for people than Google" or even something more provocative like your subhead "Stalk your peers with iSearch" I think maybe you would have done better.
Hope that helps.
Thanks for the input ryan. I never knew I could get to #1 Google with this hub! I'm impressed with myself! I'll keep on writing!
SpotCoolStuff: In this case I'm impressed by you! You are tottaly right regarding the titles. Just by reading the ones you made up I know that I would want to check it out if I was browsing the web! Why didn't I thought of that? I'll pay more attention to my titles from now on.
I thought it would be really important to have the main theme of my hub in the title so that people that are really looking for it could find it. I see now that maybe having an interesting title, even without the actual keywords in there can be more fruitful...
I have learned something new! I thank you all!
profiler sometimes I have a very different title compared to my hub url - by default they are the same but you can change them - Ifocus the title on people and searching or an itneresting title and then the url is actually focused on SEO keywords
The URL is what you initially set unless you want to decom the hub and republish as a new one. The title may be changed. The URL is more important than the title for search engines simply because it's the easiest thing for them to look at. I trippled my hits for a venue database when I changed the urls from
And yes the title of that particular page was always "Venetian Theatre"
And just because you rank #1 in words from your title DOES NOT mean other people are searching for those terms. I know this one old guy who brags on and on about how he ranks #1 at google for "Joe smalltown numbnuckies" or something ridiculous like that. right..... were you ever looking for that?

I've been on here for a few years, and I guess I never really understood the point of these scores. They don't seem to provide any real value to the user and I can't convince myself that they add value because they fluctuate so much.What's the point? Am I supposed to use these scores to tell me...

Hi, I currently have 4 hubs posted and I am literally not getting ANY traffic. I got maybe 10 views on the days I published a hub and then nothing. For today I have 0 views. This is very depressing for me to be honest in trying to continue on with this site. Is it normal to get 0 traffic until you...

How Many visitors do you get in one day on your hubs if you have written approx 150?The reason why I ask is that I have seen so many people on the forums stating they have at least 1000 a day. This is fine but they only have 22 hubs! is it just me, or am I missing something? perhaps my hubs are...

I've noticed that of my 13 hubs, "Painting the Evil Wood Ceiling" has generated over half my views. This is partly because it's much older than the rest; but it continues to get more daily views than my other hubs. Can anyone offer insights as to why?

Over the past two+ years I’ve really put a lot of effort into learning SEO and how to produce content that has some hope of success here on HubPages. It was hard work and frustrating at times, but it really paid off. So let me preface this by saying by no means am I dissatisfied with...

One thing that I've noticed in my traffic stats is that one particular hub about a particular acoustic guitar - seems to be doing better than other hubs about what I would think would be guitars that are more sought after.So I looked at the hub that is doing so well, and tried to figure out why...
