I've been on here close to a year now. Granted I have not published much. But recently I have published 2 poem's of which I have had absolutely NO RESPONSES to. I have tried to add the Summary, and it continue's to show that I don't have one my latter post. what am I doing wrong, that no one has made any comment's to my poem's? I have added the appropriate tag's I think to draw attention.
The Learning Center can not only take you step-by-step through all the parts of building a Hub, but also has info on getting traffic.
I'm not sure if poetry hubs or writing ever gets a lot of traffic or comments. Have you been reading other fiction on HubPages and leaving comments on writing that you enjoy? That might be a good way to network with other Fiction Hubbers.
BTW You do not appear to have a comments box on one of your poems.
I agree with DigbyAdams, you have to network with other Hubbers. Sharing in and out of Hubpages goes a long way too.
When I first joined HP I had not many views until I started coming to the forums and communicating with other hubbers. Then I started sharing on FB and Twitter and also added a signature to my emails linking to all my internet places. That really helps. Over time, people follow you, you follow them back. The more you interact with others on and offline in a positive and upbeat way, the more traffic you will get - it is the INTERnet, after all! btw, whenever I complain about anything, traffic falls off! in public and in private too!
Lol, you have noticed this too, the drop when one speaks out.
I did not realize that I did not have an open comment box..not quite sure how to fix that, but I'll have to look at it again...
I thank you all for the feedback, it's been very helpful...I do try to visit other's hub's and make comment's..maybe not enough...

I find it kind of ridiculous that I have been waiting for a couple weeks now for one of my hubpages to be published. What was the longest time you have ever had it take to get a hubpage to publish?

How long does it take to make money with hubpages? After 160 views on 10 hubs they tell me I have 0 clicks. Is something wrong?

How is it that a hub on the 'common mistakes new hubbers make' can suddenly become not featured, in spite of the fact it has had 9 views in a day, 24 views in 7 days and 35 views in the last 30 days? I only replied to...

What's your take on jealousy among hubbers on Hubpages?I published a hub a few days ago. The hubscore started at 66 and has been doing great. Two nights ago the hub went to 91. A hubber left a comment on the hub -...

Few hubbers are stealing the content of other hubbers and posting it on other sites by different usernames. I have published a hub on 20th August and within few hours this material was posted on blogspot by someone just...

I know that you can choose to display your idle hubs on your profile page, but I don't, because I don't want Google to see them at all and get confused by all those "do not follow." What this means is...
