Writing Hubs that Bring You More Page Views Made Simple
Great book from Amazon. A Mink a Fink and a Skating Rink. What a unique piece of subject matter!
Increasing readers is the ultimate goal for writers making money online through passive income
How about starting a blog along with hubs? These are great ways to set up links and connect niche material
When any piece of writing, including a hub, goes to a viral status it is wonderful to say the least.
Bringing thousands of page views to a hub is something every writer of a hub is striving for. Hubs increasing dollars in an authors wallet via passive income. While viewing hubs you own around the site, most writers imagine what to do to increase readership. Do you ever wonder why there are some writer's with material which appear to gain only a handful of views while others seem to have thousands?
It is very easy to become envious of these writers and wonder how they are able to get the attraction of thousands of individuals seeking out information to the Hubs while yours are passed by? There are ways to make those small amount of visits grow to bigger ones.
No easy tricks
There is no easy trick to the trade. There is no one thing to do or not to do which creates a piece of writing which never fails or is guaranteed to go viral. However, there are a couple of things to do which will make a difference in the number of visits you receive each day, week and even month to hubs.
Avoid general substance
One major difference successful hubbers have is writing about a specific subject. This is an excellent idea whenever choosing a topic. Stay away from those broad keystrokes. Search engines and readers are looking for details. Eyeballing pages of feedback after putting in keywords and phrases to find what they are looking for is never something anyone chooses to do if they are able to avoid the chore.
Pull from a well known niche
Countless members of this site create text in inside of a specialty field or niche. Writing about what they know or what they feel comfortable with is a great idea. This makes for a terrific article. Though, mistakes are made when crafting it in a general sense. Building content in broad strokes is not the way to go. Search engines find these hubs and do return them in search results. Getting better page views more often comes with writing more detailed subject matter.
The less work the better, according to web crawlers looking for what you have written. They generally will not look through hundreds or thousands of articles to find yours. Most do not look past the first page offered. Hubs not ranking high on the feedback ladder or lost in thousands of results sometimes never get reads. They are lucky to receive a handful a month.
Matching more keywords or phrases with the input from a reader means less results, less choices and converts to more reads. Most hubbers do the math the other way around and imagine generalized material gets more page views. In fact, the opposite is true.
A great example is having 101 ice cream flavors to choose from. Out of one hundred customers, each flavor gets a couple of requests. Some receive none at all. Opting for the choices of only chocolate, vanilla and strawberry means out of the same 100 customers the three receive more requests.
However, it may not make for thousands of page views. General information is great and will get you some page views but nowhere near the thousands that you crave.
Examples of more detailed ideas would be instead of submitting an article around Nevada, write about Las Vegas Nevada. An even better one would be the Flamingo Hotel in Las Vegas Nevada. Less results means more readers. The ten thousand folks looking for the Flamingo Hotel in Las Vegas Nevada you will be in the top ten results. This means a larger piece of the pie when it comes to gaining an increased readership and more money in your pocketbook.
Great topics to write about
When determining what your next hub is about, put some real thought into it. Avoid wasting time and effort to simply throw an easy piece together which is not well written on on a topic which wastes your time.
Choosing nearly any topic or subject matter will certainly get you a reader. Though, there are some more appealing than others. Consider some of these if wondering where to take your next piece of content.
Lots of articles around the site are designated to a particular niche. For instance, one hubber has 50 hubs all surrounding quilting as a hobby. They include material around choosing fabric, colors that coordinate and even different stitches. This is brilliant and makes for easy writing if the writer's education or expertise is in this field. It also works to increase readers to an audience with an interest in the hobby. If hobbies are not a favorite, try some other items.
Travel is a very popular subject. In fact, there are tons of sites and blogs dedicated to this type of writing. Travel writers are in great demand and make a terrific living in the freelance world through sites, blogs, magazines and other publications like the Hubpages.
Before throwing away money to buy a ticket to some place you wont enjoy or wasting vacation days sitting around somewhere you never wanted to be, find out about it. Reading travel material is a great way to make it happen.
Reviews of people, places and things is nice. Wondering if the next big holiday movie is good or bad? Finding a hub about it will certainly help you figure it out.
Product reviews are also very much in demand. Manufacturers are sometimes eager to get them out there. It lets them know if they are wasting money on something not liked as well as saving the buyer resources for the same reason.
Writing the content is half of the battle. Getting the traffic to your hub is the second half of the battle. You need to direct traffic or focus it to the hub. Showing traffic where you want them to go is capable by adding the right keywords and phrases into the content.
Many great writers have their content overlooked because they didn’t include the correct ones. To few are not good as well as too many. In fact, try to detail and focus the phrases and keywords as well as the content. Two or three at the most works well enough. Any more than that and the focused traffic is lost in generalities.
It has been noted the most unique phrases drive the most traffic. Imagine a search engine is looking out for a unique one and only a few hundred articles have it-one of them is yours. You have just increased your content by possibly a hundred views.There is no limit to how many more readers come your way. Page views increase substantially the more unique they happen to be.
Tools to help
Tons of tools are out there to help a writer find a few of these unique subjects for words and phrases. Google has a keyword tool and is an enticing way to make ease of the work. The tool not only helps with discovering some of these out of the way searches, but also gives feedback or analysis of how many results and/or searches are found within Google's search engine data
Both of these in combination with each other help make a better article or Hub. A better piece of work always results in bringing more readers your way. Hopefully these ideas have planted great seeds for original input from writers at the sight.
These are two simple changes to structure work to gain more traffic. Try it and check your hub visits after a couple of days and find out what a difference a few changes actually make.
Famous people are niches too
Answering even simple questions gets lots of reads
Lots of people enjoy reading about everyday life believe it or not. They write hubs that provide answers to questions tied to specific niches that people are searching for. When people are searching for information you want them to find your content or hub and read it, you want the page views that you so desperately crave.
One more great idea to gain more traffic
Another excellent piece of advice when ti comes to waking up hubs and the traffic they receive is adding something extra. Whether the extra comes in the form of pictures, video or other visual or interactive showings ( like a poll) it all means the reader gains a little something.
Giving readers the little extra or showing as a writer you went the extra mile to add to the experience is always notices. This separates a writer or hub from others within the same niche or category.
