Quality Hubs Improve Traffic

My History on Hubpages

When I started writng on Hubpages my main focus was writing articles of quality. Yes, I am a bit of a perfectionist. I did the research and wrote a lot about medical problems, since I have many years of nursing experience and management education. I also wrote about topics I was interested in such as social issues, stained glass and genealogy. The only problem I didn't have was thinking of something to write about.

I read many other peoples hubs as well, since I could certainly see there are many people who write quality material. I quickly started included videos, pictures and Amazon items, and now I receive some income from Amazon. I also signed up for Google Adsense and watched the pennies accrue, although now that has changed since we get paid through Hubpages.

Posting on Other Sites

After some months, I started posting my articles on various sites around the internet based on what other people discussed and of course, Twitter, Google, PinInterest and Facebook are easily used when you first publish.

  • I have found Facebook always gives me visitors
  • Posting on Google is always helpful
  • Twitter didn't seem to help as much at first but has improved.
  • One I have found most helpful is Stumble Upon and anything I have posted there has at least given me a couple of visitors.
  • The next helpful site I found was Reddit.com. I sometimes get numerous people from this site and sometimes none. This site like the last two are very quick to type in your link and I have a method for doing that which has simplified the process, but first I will tell you about three more sites.
  • I have written about my hubs on blogger, but while I do get a few visitors, I have not really put in the effort to establish myself very well on that site at this time.
  • I post on RedGage also, and typically get some visitors.
  • There are many other sources available to get traffic to your website, and I haven't tried all of them.

Freedom - It Feels Good to Write a Quality Hub

How I Utilize my Time Effectively

I write all my hubs in Word. I never start writing a Hub in Hubpages, as I seem to be able to spot errors in Word more easily, and I often change paragraphs around while doing research. After I acquire mykeywords and decide how I want to write the topic, I make a short outline.

Utilizing keywords is absolutely essential in attracting viewer from Google. A good keyword should be in the title and preferably in the first sentence. It can also be mentioned again in the last paragraph. High dollar keywords attract viewers through Google searches and that is by far the biggest percentage of the people that will visit your Hub. Stuffing your hub with keywords will do more harm than good.

When I find my videos and pictures and have everything I might need, I copy and paste on Hubpages from my Word document. The most important this of all is to write a quality article that is free from spelling and grammatical errors. Everyone makes a mistake now and then, but strive for perfection. Reading your hub out loud before posting it will often reveal some little error you had not noticed before. Quality, interesting, well-documented content wins the prize.

As You Finish Writing

So, as soon as I publish my hub, I immediately put it on Twitter, Google, Pininterest and Facebook. After that I will choose where I want to post my link description, and it takes little time as they are already written. This may seem like a long process to some, but I found it a lot faster than going to each site and figuring out what they require and then writing the descriptions.

This has increased my traffic quite a bit, although I am not where I want it to be yet. I think writing hubs of good quality is the most important component in keeping your hub score up and in attracting traffic. I strive to do this. If people know you write good hubs, with articulate information, they are more likely to return to your hubs. The bottom line is that my traffic has improved

I used the sites, they gave me some traffic, but not money. I found if you find help site or something discussing the topic you wrote about, you can get more quality traffic that is interested in what you have on you site, and can get you some money. But I am not doing a lot of money, but this is what is working best good for me. I also have a hub which the keyword is on every line, "you're so Ugly" and it ranks good becaue the quantity of keywords.

Keep on hubbing!

Thank you for sharing the process. I have done most and settled upon Twitter, Facebook and Stumble Upon. I have found also that many hubbers refer their friends and family members to our hubs and some, like myself have added hubbers widgets to our personal website and blogs.

Because of yahoo and gmail interaction with twitter and facebook, it is usually shown there as well.

Great Hub Pam and thank you.

Love and hugs,

Forever His,

I've been writing on this site for over a year and (not a dime) the traffic seems to be ok with 50 plus fans but nothing in the way of monetary rewards. If I didn't enjoy bashing this Regime so much I wiould have quit a long time ago!

A very good morning Pamela, I must read this Hub again later today because it is packed with awesome information. Pamela, I like you (no make that very much less than a novice) entered HubPages as a complete dummy. I am still lost but the help that my fellow Hubbers give me lends hope that someday I just might get to learn the system of getting traffic. As of now traffic seems to be at a standstill.

Pamela I do hope you got rid of those carpender pests and your plumbing problem is fixed. God Bless!

Rev Lady, Thanks for explaining the connections. I appreciate your comments.

richwf, I hope it turns out to be helpful for you. Thanks for your comment.

Patriot, I thought your main reason for writing is you use your talent to bash your favorite topic. I think you traffic will grow if you make a lot of comments on other people's hubs and maybe put it on a couple of site. Thanks for your comments.

ScecialK, I hope they help because there a great many people who have much more traffic than I and I assume are making much more money also. I appreciate you comments.

Cybersupe, First, all is well on the home front. Thanks for asking. I almost quit a couple of times but I would encourage you to hang in there and really look at the quality of the winners (presuming they are the ones with the 100 scores persistently). Their hubs always are laid out so neatly and I do think using Facebook, Stumble Upon, etc is helpful. Thanks for your comment.

Hi Pamela, I really enjoyed this hub explaining your methodology. When I publish, I share it on FB, used to Tweet it-don't find it helps-then share with my followers, Digg it, then Stumble it. I've found SU to be my best bet. I enjoy the site and Stumble regularly, posting others' hubs as well. I've a few friends there as well, and they do come by HP per my suggestions.

Thanks for giving us some insight into your traffic ways!

Springboard profile image

Springboard 6 years ago from Wisconsin

Driving in that outside traffic has to be one of the hardest things to do, yet is perhaps the most rewarding as everyone who seems to know says that THAT'S the traffic that matters when it comes to Adsense revenues. I think you are doing right to focus a lot on quality. In the end, I think it is of the utmost importance, because even if you can drive in traffic, if you're writing goop, who's going to stick around long enough to take your work seriously, and certainly who's going to take the time to scroll down and allow you the maximum opportunity of getting an ad clicked on?

Interesting you mention login problems at RegGage. I've run into the same problem and have pretty much given up on the thing.

In any event, keep up the great work, thanks for the tips, and happy hubbing. Wow, that's a mouthful. :)

Hello, hello, 5 years ago from London, UK

Hello,Pamela, and thank you for such a down-to-earth and honest hub. So far I read about how many hundreds of dollars they made or you got to this and you got to do that and success will come to you. I am in the same boat, also 13 months here, and learn everything there was written, even the full-stop and the commas. I got it increased some but nothing like they were saying. I have had one pay-out from Google but after ten months. I am not ungrateful but considering the work we put in. I too had a couple of visitors from Stumple. Hardly anything from Digg and as you said Reddich you get a number of vistors and then nothing. I too would like to know where is the key to unlook the door for the great flood to come in? If I find it, I definitely will let you know. Ok, back to the grindstone.

Pam, This a a really good Hub. It has a lot of useful information and tips. I hope all is going well with you and your family. By the way I found this Hub on Digg. I was posting some of my own stuff. I have started to make some money from Amazon. I found the secret is in volume. I used to use Amazon as a decoration. It had to look nice on my Hub. I have changed my attitude. I put in an Amazon capsule and max it out on number of items(10). The more items you give them to click on, the more clicks you will get. Have a Great Day! Voted up and awesome.

Hi Pamela

This is something which I've not yet tried because of the time constraints. I find it hard enough to find time to write hubs.

All the traffic I've had so far has been organic(I think this is the correct term) but it is clear to me that if I want to take my writing to the next level I am going to have to knuckle down and promote my hubs.

Great helpful hub Pamela. Yes we all need to do backlinks. As for redGage I found it easier to use with firefox especially when loading pics. page360 is good too.

I would not use the same wording on each of your backlinks you need to change the wording slightly.

You could also write articles of similar subjects as you write at hubpages on Infobarrel and link them together. That way they would compliment each other. Info pays well too. Thanks for sharing your great experiences.

Thanks for sharing and for your honesty. I'm not making any money with Amazon either. I have decided to just go with writing a quality hub. Not certain I will even stay with Amazon. Seems you get caught up when you first sign up with Hubpages and you see all of these other money making possibilities and they seem to end up being a headache more than anything. I really enjoy Hubpages and think I will give them the best I can do, it's fun and a gain-full of experience. Plus, I think (for me personally) the hub looks better when it is just a 'hub' and not with all those add-ons. Hubpages, has enough advertisements of their own and place them strategically on your hub and look pretty neat. True, the money does not come fast (which I'm sure most of us thought that it would at first); but it will add up and that's the good part. In the meantime, I'll just enjoy Hubpages for Hubpages. Voted and rated.

Hye pamela, i am exactly the same stage as you are 20 months ago when you were still a novice. I guess now you are in the Guru or mastery level. I've published 7 hubs within 2 weeks joining hubpages. My traffic mostly comes from hubpages and I promote most using stumbleupon and diggs. it generates me traffic very quickly but only last for a day or two. I cant seem to maintain my high numbers of visitors to my hub. Any advice?

Useful. I like that you give some actual examples of sites to use to increase traffic, you don't just say "use other sites" like some stuff I have read. Thanks!

Good information, Pamela. I also use Word. It's important to find a way to automate the writing process to make it easier to submit to many sites.

Very informative Hub! I have not used RedGage or Redditt. I should do that. I hardly get any traffic from Twitter, but Pinterest send me some decent traffic.

Voted UP, etc.
