Hey peeps! I just published two hubs recently - one on the Kony 2012 scam and another on Dominica (the West Indian Island in the Caribbean that I live on)...
Although the Kony Hub is getting reasonable views, I feel the traffic should be much higher as the topic is one of the leading news stories currently..
The Dominica Hub on the other hand is a tourism centred hub designed to give people an insiders view of the hot spots on the island...it initially got a good amount of views, but now is down to less than 5 views a day!
Any advice you could give on helping me to enhance the hubs would be great & much appreciated!

You've obviously put a lot of work into those hubs! However you may want to swing some of the images to right so it doesn't break up the flow of text.
As for KONY2012, the fact that it's a hot topic means a LOT of people are writing about. Which means you have a LOT of competition.
Unless you are on a news site (most of which are huge and get boosts in Google), anything you write on other sites such as Hubpages or your own, will likely take several months to rank well in Google. That's why it's better to write on evergreen (topics that are always relevant) subjects instead of news stories and events.
Maybe create a "Made for Pinterest" image for that Kony hub, pin it and see if you can get people to notice it that way.
Thanks for taking the time out to read them I have Pinned images from all my Hubs onto my Pinterest & although it has bought in some traffic, its nothing noticeable.
Im ranking pretty well in search results for most of my politically charged hubs... for example if you search for 'truth about kony 2012', my Hub comes up at position 13 (page 2 of search results) out of 177 million results...i just feel my SEO skills are a little weak & need to be worked on, but i wanted to ensure the articles themselves couldn't be further improved.
i will definitely try position some images to the right... i felt the pictures were absolutely stunning so deserved centre stage
what are your thoughts on Kony 2012 incidentally?
You might want to read my hub about creating images for Pinterest - just throwing random images on there is unlikely to generate traffic.
And the old joke goes: Where is the best place to bury a body? On page 2 of Google. If you're not on page 1, you're unlikely to get much traffic, unfortunately.
And as for Kony2012, I believe that it's similar to what happened with Osama Bin Laden.
i will check out your hub i am reading your amazon selling tips right now though - real useful!
LOL at the google joke - sounds about right!!!!
not quite sure i understand the kony/osama analogy..would you mind explaining? id love your insight!
The US need an "enemy" - a general "war on terror" wasn't enough, they needed a face to hate (just like in the book 1984). Osama is dead, Kony is the new "it". There's no proof that either were really alive, except for the US' word on it.
ahh that makes it much more clear! you are definitely right - an enemy figure have to always be present as they are controlling the masses with fear and the threat of terrorism...
the one point that should make everyone sit up and come to a quick realisation about is the fact that the US went to war with Afghanistan supposedly to infiltrate al Qaeda (which is a US created enterprise any way) but are now actively 'working with' al Qaeda to slaughter more innocents in Syria. Terrible, Terrible times...

This week we will begin assessing older Hubs that haven't yet gone through the Quality Assessment Process. Instead of only holding newly-published Hubs to the heightened quality bar introduced in March, ALL published Hubs will need to meet minimum quality requirements in order to remain or become...

I've noticed that when it comes to traffic, my hubs on network sites (ex. turbofuture, pairedlife) perform a lot better than my hubs on hubpages.com. I'm just wondering if there are certain ways we can do to increase the views for these hubs other than just sharing them on social media. I'm asking...

I plan on editing my existing hubs, the ones with high traffic to get them to rank even better for terms they already rank for, but not at #1 spot. I have a premium SEM rush account using which I can see what I am ranking for and what I can improve upon. I use this on my own website with a lot of...

Am I losing money from my writing here on Hubpages?Although my hubs have been badly hit by another Panda or a Penguin update and the earnings from my Hubs are at their lowest in a few years, I cannot say in all honesty that I am losing any money what so ever.I may be earning less now than I have in...
