    For my English class I write a ton of material over literature. Much of it could be considered literary criticism. A few of my hubs get some views but not a large amount. I have published 27 hubs and about 9 of them are literary criticims while about 3 or 4 others are about writing in general. Am I publishing unpopular hubs? My best hub is "Discussion over Death of a Salesman" which has a pretty good number of views but no comments. Thanks for your responses!

    You might get better luck with this in Extreme Hub Makeover. I'm addicted and trying to go to bed or I would read now and advise. I would assume that some of the problem you're having is related to SEO more than it is your actual content. I will try to come back here during the next week and help you out if I can!

    As a rule, literary hubs never do as well as hubs on say health or food. Or blogs for that matter. However, I have 2 literary blogs and like to write about literature and books.

    SEO is search engine optimisation. If you want visitors you will need to google it. Its a big subject.

    Literary hubs could do well if you choose other students as an audience and try to meet their study needs. You own opinions about a piece of Lit might interest them but offering an overview of current acedemic research on the piece would probably be more useful.

    A lot of work if you want to suceed...
