I am new, published one article. People have read it, and commented. But under the Category "Food and Cooking" I cannot find my article entitled "The World of Fast Food"....I do a generic search and still cannot find it. What am I doing wrong? It is obvious others have found it.
It can take anywhere up to 24 hours for a new article to show up in all sections of the site.
It can also take a little while for it to be indexed in Google and get external search traffic.
But how does it show 36 reads on my profile and one comment to me regarding the article?
I can find it thru Google, just not on the HubPages site.
It is probably in the hub hopper and probably shows up in the feed for anyone following those topics - just hasn't fully updated to other sections.
Also, your own views are counted, so if you viewed the hub ten times, even before publication, that will count towards total views.
I saw your question here so went and read your hub which I enjoyed !
You'll get views from HP (internal views), don't worry. The system works, and your hubs will show up in the feeds of related articles on occasion and people will see it. But the reality is, internal traffic usually spikes briefly right around the time you put the hub up; after that it wanes and then it's all search engine and organic links. I wouldn't worry too much about where/when it pops up here on HP for traffic. It's nice to get instant feedback, but long term readership and/or earnings come from outside HP.
[A good story, too. I just read it.]

It's been almost 7 days since I published my first article on HubPages. But, still I haven't got 100 views on my first article. Please help me so that my words will reach to the valuable and curious readers.

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...

One of my game guides gets 100 views a week, even though the game came out in 2014. When I wrote it, I didn't really think it'd do as well as it is. Have any of your articles done surprisingly well?

I've been an active user of HP for over 6 years. Over that time, my income would increase until, suddenly, my "reads" would take a hit and my (modest) income would take a drop.This has happened a number of times, as you all know.And, I dutifully went through my articles and modified,...
