    How much average visitors do you get for your poems on Hubpages? Is the traffic from Search Engines?

      I don't know averages. Most of my poetry views and comments come from my followers. I do get a few from Google, likely a mistake. lol I have had a couple go Idle and removed them from HubPages. Poetry on the web is pretty much just for love of the genre and not for profit.

      I have a few poem hubs. They are just for fun and do not get nearly the traffic as my other hubs do - less than half, I'd guess. I don't know how you can break down where the traffic comes from, though. The comments are always from people on HP.

    I just joined Hubpages. Within the last week, I've been trying to browse blogs and stay social. I've only gotten 4 visitors. No, the traffic is from my own personal advertising.

    Poems do not do well on HubPages unless you format the Hub properly.

    Part of the reason is that Google doesn't like short Hubs, and a single poem is a very short Hub.  You have two options.

    1. If you have two or three poems around the same subject, publish them in the same Hub. 

    2. If you want to have one poem per Hub, dress the poem up with explanatory text, images etc.   Some of the best examples of this method are by Pearldiver:

    Having a blog will help to improve your traffic. Creating a free one is easy enough. poets can keep them themed to the poetry subject, and write articles or blog now and then about writing or poetry. Lots of poets also write other things. I get on average 100 visits a day to my blog, which is more than what I get to my hubs.

    Since poems on Hub pages are mostly read by other hub poets or poets in general, I try getting my viewers from outside Hub Pages. So a twitter account and some tweets with links do help. A Facebook account and Pinterest account also help. Continuing the conversation about writing and poetry beyond Hub Pages is good and draws traffic to your hubs - and hopefully those few ads.

    Social media is one way to go, while blogging also helps a lot.
