How can I maximize my traffic to my websites?
I use Google+/About.Me/Hubpages/Linked In/Dice.com/Facebook. I want to increase my traffic and have a somewhat centralized information store so I can get my name out there. How do YOU maximize your traffic?
The biggest way to increase your traffic is to offer relevant content. I know this sounds obvious but you'd be surprised how many people overlook this important point. I have tried to buy all kinds of plugins, gadgets, etc., and they only serve to get me banned from Google Adwords and other services as well. When I stopped trying to find the silver bullet in marketing and started offering content that was meaningful and worthwhile, my traffic soared. It really works. Try it and you'll be amazed.
As stated by techhound below 'Content is KING', if you target your content to what the readers want and the search engines are looking for then you've got a sure winner. The other thing to do is market your content using good old linking methods rather than expensive or dodgy tools.
I use Onlywire and also IBP11 for my work and it seems to work very well. Also try reading and commenting on a number other websites or blogs that relate to your content, living your URL that helps to build backlinks which search engines also love.
First, you need to write about things that are searched by people, not something so plain like 'how to build a chair' but more on something that is used in peoples' everyday lives. Think about it, what do they use every day? Their phones, computers, trains, cars, work places, schools, colleges, ect.. these are always good topics as there are ALWAYS new people arriving to the subject. It's good to write unique hubs, but you should draw the public to your page with more-so 'epic' ones. Then, you need to have good tags--tags, tags, tags! I know I had a lower amount of tags on one of my hubs, I added about five or six more clever ones, and almost instantly I saw a pretty little red triangle next to my hub! Try using Twitter, and also backlink!! You can do this at redgage.com and readit.com here you submit links for people to see, and boy does it work wonders! Good luck to you as it looks like you've got everything else covered!!

I have read somewhere here that google search engines take into account the page-views to compute ranking. Is it advisable to delete non-performing Hubs, those with 0 pageviews a day, as a way to increase traffic in an attempt to increase ranking?How do you deal with low-performing hubs?thanks in...

Quite a while ago we used to add our own tags to each hub. For example if we wrote about shoes we would use the tag box for words such as: shoes, trainers, new shoes, fashion shoes. And so on. Reading various articles around the internet I noticed that sometimes when the page hasn't loaded properly...

So other than the fact that Google has apparently decided I am a crappy writer and my traffic is down from 17k a day to maybe 1600... with a similar decline in income... Do we yet know why this happened? Feeling a little bitter. Have had to take on enough clients that I rarely have time to...

I am not going to drag up the recent massive plagiarism activity again, but - as you know Maddie - I have found that quite a lot of my hubs have been de-indexed and my traffic here is dropping despite publishing new work and despite actively promoting myself outside of hubpages. I realize that it...

I have been on hubpages for two months. I have read multiple articles on SEO and backlinking. Ninety percent of my hubs do not have backlinking. But I choose for a while to say no backlinking. It was "different" I thought and "original". ...

Jennifer - first of all ... don't ask for readership. Let it come. And it will come if you do the following:1. Read others work and comment/ rate it2. Take part in the forum, even if it's just asking for help or offering help to others3. Publish hubs of interest to your fellow hubbers4. Rate up...
