Five Things I Do After Publishing a Hub

Five Easy Steps to Backlinks and Search Engine Indexing

Getting your hubs indexed by search engines and acquiring backlinks doesn't have to be painful grueling work. I find it easier to create backlinks immediately after publishing a hub because the keyword(s) I'm targeting are fresh in my mind. To make everything simple, I like to create methods that are quick and provide results. That way, I just rinse and repeat the process for every hub, Squidoo lens or blog post. There are times that mmore link building is necessary because of the competitiveness of the keyword(s). In those instances, I use more social bookmarking sites, adsense revenue sharing sites and blogs. I have provided the details for those other methods on the hubs: How to Create Backlinks and Social Bookmarking Strategy to Get Targeted Traffic.

So, let's get started!

As soon as publish a hub, I complete the following five steps:

  1. Link my new hub to older hubs that share the same content. If I don't have similar content, I try to publish two hubs in the same category and link them together. This helps the search engines index your hubs in a shorter amount of time.
  2. I bookmark my hub on Redgage. This gives you a backlink and can get you some quick views.
  3. I post my hub on the wahm.com forum to a thread dedicated to HubPages. Another quick backlink and some possible views and/or votes from fellow hubbers. There are times I can't post my hub because my hub is the last post on the thread and you can't make consecutive posts. When that happens I skip the step and try to go back to post it at a later date.
  4. I post my hub on ping.fm. By doing this, I send my hub link out to friendfeed, twitter, and a dozen other social media networks from one location. This saves time and gets you multiple backlinks with one action.
  5. I add my hub to Facebook group called HubPages Writer's Community. This site has a nice community of hubbers that are active on the site. Many of them have visited my hubs, given me some votes and left feedback. Oh and you get a backlink!

If you are participating in a 30 day challenge or a hubmob topic, you can also post a link in the HubPages forum in the appropriate thread. These little quick steps increase your visits in a short amount of time.

That's it. Wasn't that easy and painless? Now go take the same steps and watch your results improve. I hope you enjoyed this hub. Please, take the time to share this with your followers by email, Facebook, Twitter, pinterest or your favorite social media network. Thanks in advance!


Will you follow these steps the next time you publish a hub?

  • No. I don't believe in link building. I don't care if no one reads my hubs.
  • Yes. I want to make more money on Hubpages.
  • I'm not sure. I don't like to work too hard.

Very informative. I like the fact you use Redgage, however, I find the site a little useless for my hubs. I usually get most of my traffic from Reddit, as long as I use the right sub-reddit.

I'm voting this up and looking forward to your next hub :).

@Vrijdag Pages The reason I use redgage is because it ranks well in the search engines. It sends a small amount of hits in the minutes following my post. However, it continues to send hits over extended periods of time. I have redgage bookmarks that rank on the first page and have sent me thousands of visitors on a continual basis. Hope that explanation helps. Thanks for taking the time to comment and voting! ;)

Hi thanks for sharing. Every time I read any of your hubs, I learn something new,and I thank you for that. I know when I'm looking for another avenue for doing something to increase readers to my blog or hubs, if I find something you have posted, I'll definitely pick up something new. And with seven kids, you deserve a medal. Don't know how you ever find the time to sit still. voted up and useful and shared on twitter, From Sharon

@GirlsTalk Thanks for the compliments. Yes, having a large family makes things difficult. Right now, I've been running around with the kids non stop and haven't been able to publish my 30dc hubs. Now I have to publish them over a few days. I probably won't reach all my goals, but I will build my passive income. Always have to look at the bright side! LOL! ;)

@DS Duby I find that most hubs only need a few backlinks, if they have the correct keywords. If your keywords are very competitive, you will need more backlinks from different sources. I wrote more hubs that explain the process and give specific examples, in case you're interested. Thanks for the comments and votes. Good luck! :)

After what Jason Menayan put in the forum about backlinking I worry about doing any of it. Mainly with Redgage and Tumblr.

You have an interesting hub and seem to be doing all the right things. Helpful to all of us. Voted Up

Supermom, great tips for increasing traffic and back links. I am now getting enough related hubs to link them together. I am also starting to link other Hubber's work to my pages that are related (and I send them an e-mail to let them know). I want to check out wahm.com, redgage, and the HubPages Writer's Community on Facebook.

Voted up, useful, and shared.

@moonlake Thank you for your kind words. I know the forum post you're referring to. I read the teaser. I'm sure Jason was referring to backlinking software and automated services. You will need to build backlinks manually from blogs, forums, social bookmarking sites and directories to get search engine traffic. It's just the way it works. Good luck!

supermom_in_ny 4 years ago from NY Author

@StephanieBCrosby Thank you! I love to help my fellow hubbers. Everyone should have the ability to make money online. It took me a while to learn. It seems the people that knew how to do it only wanted to charge for the info. I didn't have the money to invest, so I learned the hard way. Which also happens to take longer. LOL! So, now I share the info for FREE. Good luck! ;)

That is so awesome of you. I have found myself in the same boat: people wanting money or membership for information about how to be successful. That is why I love the HubPages community. Once I get time, I will be posting free lesson plans for teachers so they do not have to pay a site to get access to new ideas.

Hi supermom, this is great. I haven't tried many of these methods as a newbie, so will be testing them in the near future. I'm sure its sound advice. Can I ask why you don't use Reddit?

Up, obviously useful and SHARING with my followers. Thank you


supermom_in_ny profile image

supermom_in_ny 4 years ago from NY Author

@livingabroad Thanks for your comment, vote and share! I use Reddit, strictly for backlinks. I haven't had much success with sending hundreds of visitors using Reddit. Worst of all, you can get banned for submitting your own content. Have you had any success with Reddit?


livingabroad profile image

livingabroad 4 years ago from Wales, UK

No success as yet but its early days. Although I have heard many people reporting similar, unsuccessful stories like mine. Maybe I'm not using it correctly! Still in my hub infancy haha. I am happy to be following your vast array of hubs which I will be trawling through soon!


supermom_in_ny profile image

supermom_in_ny 4 years ago from NY Author

@livingabroad There are a few hubs that have been written about Reddit, but it's tricky to use them because you can get banned. They frown upon submitting one's own content...

@thecrazzykylex It was down because they were upgrading it or something. I remember reading about it on the site. It still works well for some sites. However, don't use it for tumblr. I started a tumblr acct just to add it to ping.fm. Found out the other day tumblr closed my account. Good luck!

Hi supermom,

Yet another great hub as always. Except for the interlinking between hubs and redgage I have not done much else to improve page views for my hubs. Great suggestions. Thank you very much. It helps a lot to have a friend like you giving great guidance.

I have started sharing your hubs on redgage not only as a return favor for all your help but also to help others who are looking for information on this topic. Cheers, Rema
