Would writing on Christmas topics guarantee traffic at this time?
No. You should plan on writing seasonal articles 2 months in advance and 3 months is better. This gives them time to age a little, allows Google to index them, and lets you edit out any kinks so that you are presenting your very best work.
By December 15 you should be publishing Valentine's Day material, January 15 -Easter material and so on.
Marye is correct - for the best traffic result, your seasonal articles need to be up well ahead of the season itself. If you publish Christmas related articles now, you'll still see a small bump, but nothing like you would be seeing if you had published your Christmas articles by September or October (or even sooner with Christmas, since it seems like the season starts earlier and earlier all the time).
But posting Christmas articles now isn't a total loss, as long as the articles you're writing are evergreen. 'Best children's toys of 2011' has a short shelf life, 'Best children's toys of all time' or 'Best classic children's toys' will be searched for pretty much every year. It's possible to build a stable of seasonally themed articles that will attract readers every year if you think in terms of providing information that will always be wanted during a particular season.
Writing on spiritual and or religious topics wii always draw readers.
Guarantee is a strong word and nothing can guarantee you traffic. However, that said, you might be lucky if you write on a low competition, highly searched keyword to get some traffic now. It's worth I try I would think.
I've just finished posting a series for Christmas. I know print publications plan their seasonal articles well ahead but I've never found it made a difference to have them too far ahead online. In my own blog the Christmas posts from last year didn't start bringing in traffic until the start of December, roughly. Christmas Eve and Christmas Day they will be huge but the build up starts at the beginning of the month.

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?

How do I get over 1,000 views across all of my articles? I know you told me many times to write, and write until I get up to 50 or 70 articles. How exactly do I know what to write or what to research? How do I expect to find a topic that google is desperately looking for?

I joined HubPages about 1 year ago and I have only written 13 hubs. Out of these 13 only 2 hubs are getting good traffic. That's why I deleted 11 hubs and left these 2 hubs on here. I'm not sure if I should go on with writing here. I think I would still keep my account because I like the HubPages...

Are you "branded" as a Hub Pages writer? If so, what is your brand, and how is it helpful to you?While I believe it is helpful for Hubbers to have an identifiable "brand image," I know it is not something that's easily accomplished. We all have many interests, so our brand must...

What is more fun? Writing dozens of articles for a niche or writing all sorts of articles from holidays to teeth whitening? And leave aside the fun, what about the money - which has more potential? What would you rather do as a writer on HP - niche writing or free lancing?

Writing has always been my way of talking when no-one is listening so finding HubPages is as good as picking up the phone and knowing there is someone on the other end of the line.My problem is that I have so much to write about I don't know what my niche is or if I even want one. What do you think...
