Has anyone noticed that simply adding a video to a well-written hub that previously lacked one has the effect of stimulating new traffic? This seems to be true even if the hub is an older one.
it seems to be *especially true* if the hub is an older one-- and yes I have noticed. I find adding a few sentences of fresh content will also stimulate new traffic. I think the deal is that Google likes fresh content-- a few sentences, a new video, whatever and adding often pushes the hub up a bit in search engine rankings so you get more traffic.
I haven't yet tried adding videos, but I am interested. Are they protected the way images are, or can you use any old thing from You Tube, for example?
Hubpages supports videos from YouTube and several other sites so I think it is OK to use these for your hubs. Just add a video capsule to your hub, choose edit, select the site that you want to use for your video, and finally cut and paste the URL of the video that you want. Good luck.

I have had a few poems receive non-featured status. I've been able to revive them by adding a couple of text paragraphs to expound on the topic of the poem while maintaining the integrity of the poem. It lengthens the hub, extending its survival, and therefore, making it more searchable. I've also...

Hello Hubpages community! I'm a relatively new user, but I've been writing journalistic pieces for several years now. Thus far I have written (what I think are) four great articles, none of which have a summary. I found it difficult to work them into the articles as a whole, and feel the summaries...
