Although I do not have many hubs I put them together the best I can.But now having a couple of thousand views combined, I am thinking I have to be doing something wrong. Recently I have become more involved / active on hubpages so I hope to see a change.
Can anyone check out maybe one or two hubs and let me know what I can improve on? or what not to do. It seems I never get more than 4 or 5 views a day from each hub.More than that is only when they are freshly published.
Thanks in advance for anyone who helps me out.
If you are also using HPads then you won't get many Adsense clicks because they're aren't many Adsense ads on the page anymore. But besides this, Google seems to be frowning on HP these days. They aren't alone, though!
Your title needs to contain a long tail keyword. Your first paragraph needs to contain it as is at least once and in a slightly different form once. Also, if you write about the same things that other people write about i.e. use the same long tail keywords, you will be no 20 million because the web is 17 years old (well in its current form) and there are 17 years of web writers ahead of you. So you have to do a lot of thinking and searching about finding keyword phrases that people are searching for but not many people have written about.
Also, you have written far too few hubs. It can be a hit or miss affair with only half a dozen hubs doing well for every 100 you write - unless you've researched every single topic and you know that the keyword phrase you are using is a hit and that few articles have been written on it.
Other than that, adsense doesn't do particularly well on hubpages. However the hubpage ad scheme is excellent, I think. I get more adsense hits from my Google blogspot.
I need more sleep, or another cup of coffee, but I somewhat understand what you are trying to tell me about the longtail keywords. I think I'll just go check out a dozen of your hubs and read through them to see if it gives me an idea of what your saying.
6 per 100 hubs with regular clicks is a pretty low number, if I would have guessed I might have said 15 - 20 thinking I was on the low end. But with really only a handful of hubs up I have no clue. I appreciate the help and figure I should learn as much as possible while starting out so I can put out high quality hubs when I am able to write more. Thank you.
The only thing I can suggest is that your hub titles do not match phrases on which people search on various search engines. If this is truly the case, you need to to do further keyword research on your topics.
As mentioned above, if you want to maximize Adsense clicks you need to not use Hubads. Otherwise, no clicks for thousands of hits is not unusual.
This is not my experience. I get the odd click on Adsense for every 100 clicks or so. However, the per click value is laughable.
I get a click about every 500, (my hubs are not the most efficient for ads). But a one of stretch of over a thousand would not be rare and my strategy is mainly Hubads focussed.
I have a similar problem. My hubs don't really seem to be getting any decent traffic since the Penguin update. I was actually doing well before that. I've been debating moving hubs to another site, but I'm just not sure I want to start over just yet. I'm not sure what penguin did, or what it is about my hubs that google no longer likes, but I know I'm getting really frustrated.
Thanks for the help everyone , I think the problem is that I have HPads as well along with adsense.As for the traffic, going with you writeangled.
Time to change some titles around and see what happens.
You should also avoid using the word "I". You should explain the topic without making it your life experience.
Depends what the topic is, depends on how many "I"s are used, depends on the target audience. It is impossible to make sweeping statements about such matters.
When it comes to writing hubs, personal recommendations seem to be more effective than just normal professional review. Gets you more Amazon click-thus and sales. Not sure "I" can be a problem!
Your title should always be in capital letters. "Weird,Strange,Exotic Foods People Eat Around the World" I would leave off every day. You should space out your sentences throughout your article.
Just like I did right here. It makes it easier for readers to read. You should read your article out loud. You have some mistakes. If you have Firefox as your browser get the add-on "after the deadline"it will help you with grammar and spelling.
Wow, thank you Tamron , I went ahead and changed the titles on each one to include the capital letters.As well as the sentences being spaced out , my traffic for the day has **quintupled** within a few hours..
Still using IE so I'll see if I can find something for the grammar and spelling.Thanks alot Tamron.
I just found this available for Chrome. Thank You for the tip, I's shure could use some help with grammar.
My adsense clicks pretty much tanked around the 8th of June. If no bounce back soon, am returning to hpads.
8th June was a Google update which was supposed to be "minor". Judging by the way it has affected some Hubbers, it wasn't minor at all.
My traffic went up, not down - but seems like many others weren't so lucky.
I read your hub about weird food and thought it was very good - interesting topic, great pictures, good format, good writing. I did not check stats for your title keywords, but would think what you have is good. It seems that there are not spaces after commas and periods, so it runs together a bit. Did you take the pics? (if not, I was just going to remind you to properly attribute them)
My only other suggestion is to keep writing more hubs. The more I write, the faster my hubs seem to move on google.
Thank you, ChaplinSpeaks. The most simple space behind the periods and commas was an issue on every one of my hubs. I've just finished editing them all.
Now I feel like my hubs are ten times better, the traffic proves it. Thanks again to everyone else for your help!
Marisa, do you have any idea what made the difference in your traffic rising instead of dropping?
It would help us all!! LOL
IF YOU'RE ON THE HP EARNINGS PROGRAM, YOU WILL EARN NOTHING FROM ADSENSE NOW.
The new layout is all HP Ads, no Adsense direct ads at all.
You can only earn from Adsense if you switch off HP Ads.
Marisa, that's interesting. It explains why my blogs and other stuff are earning hub pages but not hubpages. Thanks for letting us know.
I had a room full of balloons...they all had "Hope for Adsense clicks" written on them..
As I drink my coffee this morning, I take them outside one by one and let them loose, allowing them to soar into the unknown galaxy...
...to never be seen again..
A newbie who doesn't understand much of this stuff but really depressed to see no earning.Wish me luck !!!
Marina just posted on another thread, that they've put the Adsense ad back again this week.
However, it is only one Adsense ad on the whole page, so (as most experienced Hubbers know), you can't expect to earn much from Adsense if you're on the Earnings program.

I use google adsense on my own blogs and make over $100.00 per month on them. I put my adsense ID in the settings here for my hubs. After 6 hubs I have not had one single click! Granted my hubs are not big page view ones, but not even one click? I've even had friends joke with me that they went to...

When you send out the request for an account should you get an email back right away or does it take a while? Will the not respond to you at all if you've only published one hub? Does anyone know of a way to contact Google? Or a way to cancel your google account? I signed up, I...

I keep submitting my request to AdSense, which keeps denying me because of 'insufficient content,' but I have four substantial hubs published AND... ads ARE showing up on my hubs but I'm not being paid for them! Help!

Since Google AdSense hasn't approved me, my hubs aren't earning anything from anywhere. I've been told that ads show up on my page but that they belong to hubpages and I won't get paid for those. I guess hubpages is earning money off my hubs but I am not. Is this the case? I have other hubs I would...

My Google Adsense is only showing about 1/10th the views I am actually getting. Something must be wrong. Could you please check this out for me? Thanks.

Hi, I have been posting a series of hubs on Dog Care and Adoption topics. All my hubs are original and I type each character in it. I also got a decent number of Hubs(21) to begin with all with good content. But google has twice turned down my request for adsense Account. It says-" Thank you...
