    I attempt to try my best to improve my traffic and increase my earnings of Google Adsense, but it seems that I can still earn only a little per day. Do you have any tip and suggestion on how to get more traffic for your hubs at Hubpages?

      Hey Jonathan,

      I noticed you have a lot of hubs, but not many followers. Also, you are only a level 1 commenter. I've noticed that people get involved most with your articles when they know that you are reading yours. It's a bit of a give and take. If you follow people and comment on their articles frequently, they will be much more likely to visit your pages and comment on your articles.

      Another benefit of this is that, if they really like your articles, they will pass them along. I will share articles that I like with my followers, and my articles will be shared by other hubbers. The more you put into the community, the better you are treated.

      I've concluded that I make about 1 penny for every 3 article views that I have. So to make significant money, you have to be receiving a lot of article views. However, once some people find you who really like your articles, they will readily keep reading and sharing your material.

      The only way to be discovered is to put yourself out there. Comment and follow others, and they will do the same for you.

      Good luck Jon!

      I like to think of my subdomain as an online library.  If the library has hubs that interest people, in the format they like, then they will be happy with being here.  They may even stay longer or come back, and maybe check out some of my other hubs.  My most popular hubs did not require any marketing efforts from me at all.

      To earn real money, you have to provide content that is not already available on the web.  Use the Google Adwords tool to see how popular a topic is, and to find keywords.
      The Learning Center is a great way to learn more about SEO, using the adwords tool and getting traffic.

      I've only read one of your hubs, the Cherry Blossom Festival one, and will offer suggestions based on that one. You write well, the photos were great, and the information presented is good.

      1.  Go back and edit your hubs.  Make sure the ideas flow smoothly from one to the next.  Read it out loud to see if you can make it flow better.  You used the word celebrate a lot in the first paragraph - surely you can think of some other words to use in its place.

      2.  Break out the hub into different topics, using headings.  In the example, you asked questions - using the heading format, they would stand out against the rest of the hub.  It makes it look better for an online audience who is skimming for topics, and will also help Google know to look for a keyword here.

      3.  You might want to present more content on it, - how did the trees get there in the first place, facts about the trees, what does it feel like to walk among the trees when they are in bloom, where to park, the differences between the three sites that have the trees and which one you recommend, etc.

      Hope this helps!

      The best way is to write articles on topics that people are searching for. But not those topics that are over saturated.

      Social networking. bookmarking sites and other sites do not bring much traffic and very little conversion to sales, search engine traffic is what you want.

      In addition to the great suggestions already posted by fellow hubbers, I just wanted to mention that your subtitles are very important for search engines.

      Make sure you use several text capsule, and title each capsule with search friendly words and sentences.

      My tuppeny worth here is that you want to find topics that are high search, as Susan said, and reasonably low competition.
      Use your main keywords in your title, summary and url, and throughout the hub, including subtitles and in photograph descriptions.
      Also use synonyms. Google is a computer and needs to be told what your hub is about - a ship, for example, use the words boat, craft, vessel etc as well as sea, water, lake or whatever so that Google knows exactly what your hub is about.
      The correct keyword density is open to speculation, but once per 2 - 3 sentence paragraph is probably about right.
      The jury is out on backlinking as far as I am concerned. It certainly helps to get early indexing, but when writing on HP your hubs are usually indexed very quickly anyway (unless your account is sandboxed, like mine, in which case backlinking won't help either). Backlinking helps if you are writing in a high competition niche but for most topics, it simply isn't worth the effort.
      Also, socialising on HP, commenting etc, has absolutely nothing to do with search engine traffic, except that you may get more backlinks from other HP users simply by commenting on their hubs.
      Your hub score is unrelated too.
      It is also true to say that you do not need to write a great hub to enjoy search engine success.
      One of my hubs is easily beaten by an older hub on here which is frankly dreadful - lacking in originality, length and fact, yet this hub has been written for the search engines and so enjoys success.
      While that annoys me, I think there is a bit of personal pride involved when writing a good, well researched and factual hub, that also encompasses SEO to ensure it is found, indexed and rated highly by the search engines, especially Google.

      My Blog provider Weebly just emailed me and let me know that since last week when I opened my brand new blog on poetry, I have received 404 visitors and readers. I am luckily enabled for Adsense so I am earning. It is small steps. But couple that to here, where I am seeing a bit less views on my Hub Pages. But my stats are changing all the time here...

      Am I complaining? No. I am expanding, engaging and blogging, so life is sweet...

      I am sure people who get 10 times that number of views a day on hub Pages are smiling. But wait till I publish my poetry book....

      Blog and earn, write and earn, link and earn...

      Writing will always pay us in the end. Embrace it...

      Wow...a lot of great responses here.

      Since I signed up here...I've done less researching on how to make my hubs stand out, and spent more time writing movie reviews for fun (my only motivation in being here)....but the more comments i read on here..the more I realize where i've gone wrong.

      I put a lot of related links.....but when it comes to keywords and subtitles and all those goody stuff...i've completely neglected it.
      Probably because i'm lazy. LOL. I guess I know what my next step is.....Time to fix those silly mistakes. All my articles are fun stuff..that probably have zero relation to key searches....
