Share Hubs of Other Writers, It Sends Traffic to Your Hubs

Just 10 days before, I read a Hub Does SHARING Increase Your Search Engine Traffic? by Brett.Tesol and decided to check it.

Without wasting time I started to share Hubs by other writers using the Share to Followers button. The results are surprising! Before I started to share the Hubs by others, the traffic from search engines to my Hubs was negligible, but soon after starting to share, traffic from this source boosted tremendously. See the image bellow.

Traffic from Search Engines to My Hubs

Source

See following chart and compare the traffic from search engine before and after Sharing the Hubs of other writers.

Search Engine
Visitors Between 1st to 8th Feb
Visitors Between 9th to 18th Feb
Google

Traffic Sources: 1st Feb. to 8th Feb | Source
Traffic Sources: 9th Feb. to 18th Feb
Traffic Sources: 9th Feb. to 18th Feb | Source

Traffic Graph

Now look carefully the two images at the right.

The first image gives the statistics of traffic sources for 1st February to 8th February and second image for 9th to 18th February.

In first image, you see the percentage of traffic from search engine 9.79%, in second image traffic from search engines is boosted to 41.91%.

All this is happened because of sharing the Hubs of other writers! So do not wait, just start to share.

I would like to thank again Brett.Tesol for sharing this great idea, which can help Hubbers to generate a big traffic to their Hubs.

I don't share others' Hubs here on HP as much because I'm afraid of overpromoting. But I sometimes promote them on social bookmarking sites, and mostly I comment on them. I let the Web traffic build naturally.

The problem with many writers is the same.... no one to push them :)

Hi Rema, you will do it. Just have some time everyday for writing on Hubpages.

remaniki 4 years ago from Chennai, India

Thank you very much jainismus. I am really working hard to publish more hubs but am not able to do so due to my writing assignments. So I do a little commenting, sharing and answering questions on HP just to stay in touch. I will definitely try harder to follow your advice. Thanks very much. Cheers, Rema.

nanderson500, go ahead and you will get a lot of traffic.


jainismus profile image

jainismus 4 years ago from Pune, India Author

Rema, I think it is because of low number of Hubs you have. Sharing increases traffic, but it comes through search engines. As you are SEO expert, you know that more Hubs will give more search traffic. My own experience is that only after 100 Hubs, I started to get more search engine traffic, and that was increased rapidly after regularly sharing Hubs of other Hubbers.

So I suggest you to publish more and more Hubs. You will surely get the results.


remaniki profile image

remaniki 4 years ago from Chennai, India

Yes, I get the point jainismus. I will not share a hub unless I find it worth sharing like this one here. But I will find good ones only if I read more.

I have seen a slight improvement in my hubs' progress after sharing but I am not doing enough of this work I am sure. I will try to read more hubs and choose the best ones to share. Thanks for the advice. I am glad that we have a friendly community that encourages hubbers and helps them. Cheers, Rema.

Hi jainismus, this is a great hub about your stats. It is true sharing other hubbers hubs help to improve your own hubs visibility, i have tried it too and i have seen it working. I like reading about other hubbers progress and i liked reading this one. Voted up and useful.

jainismus 4 years ago from Pune, India Author

Thanks Rema for the comment. You do not need to share each and every Hub you read, but only those which are of 'Must Read' type.


remaniki profile image

remaniki 4 years ago from Chennai, India

Hi jainismus,

Thanks for the reminder that we should share others' hubs more often. I did read Brett's hub on this topic and have been religiously following his advice but share only when I think the hub I read is really worth sharing.

I am sure I need to read more hubs and share more often. Socially sharing this to remind hubbers and inform the ones who are not aware of this. Thanks again. Cheers, Rema.

Hi, thanks for the reply. Sadly, it appears as though HP removed such buttons that were once found at the end of each hub. That's why i spent so much time rather confused and in endless search, lol. Perhaps you could update the hub to reflect on these changes, assuming they are gone for good. Seems like a very poor move on HP's part...

As of right now, I can only see the 'Share' button from the Feeds page.

Thanks Mahesh for reading the Hub.


jainismus profile image

jainismus 4 years ago from Pune, India Author

Thanks DNemesis for asking the questions. Here are the answers:

1: No, that is not Like This Hub link, but you have to click exactly on 'HubPages Followers'. When you click on it the Hub is shared with your followers.

2. It is not about hyperlinking.

3. If the Hubber whose Hub you have shared is a follower of yours, he will know it if he checks Hubpages feed. He can also know it through the notifications and email notifications.


DNemesis profile image

DNemesis 4 years ago

Call me a moron (sadly im not on Hubs regularly):

1- When you say you used the "Share to Followers button", you mean the "Like This Hub" i see to the right with FB/Tweet/Pin options?

2- Or by sharing do you mean simply to link to others' hubs within your own hub via hyperlinking?

3- Would they know you shared their articles? how so? or would we merely 'hope' they find out we shared their hub?

Hope you can answer those 3 to have a better understanding on how sharing works. Thanks for the great article.

With the newest Panda those who are sharing and have been shared are still receiving visitors. In our case we are still seeing an increase in search engine traffic. Our placement on Google page 1 is also increasing. We currently have three places where we are the only name on page 1 and are working on a forth. We actually gave up trying to find out how many times we are on page 1 for keywords. None of this would have been possible without sharing and being shared. Search engines now look for links before ranking, the more they see the more value they see in you.

I also read the hub of him and started to share, but it was coincidentally exactly then when I started hubbing and never knew if sharing hubs hels me too. But your hub has proven it that it really increases the traffic. Very good hub! and of course I will share it with my followers Vote up Useful and Twitter it!

I appreciate you sharing the breakdown of how sharing others' hubs have increased your own traffic. Brett.Tesol did have a great idea and it's nice to see in "black & white" the proof of his theory.

Since I've begun to SHARE, I've met new hubbers and learned information and been entertained in ways I may have never sought out myself. It's a win-win for me.

Voted up and SHARING.

More research has shown on two platforms that people who comment and share are getting more visitors from search engines and from the comments themselves. Many of us now who are into sharing follow the link to the profile of the person doing the sharing. If we find something of value to our friends or followers we have no problem SHARING.

Very interesting article. Thank you Yes I've shared it.


wheelinallover profile image

wheelinallover 4 years ago from Central United States

For those interested in how organic traffic increases here is a simple explanation. Google's new algorithm looks at high PR ranked links to your hub in their decision for placement.

Tweets by others, Retweets, likes on facebook, shares and comments are now taken into consideration more than the number of times a keyword is used in an article. Actually now if you use your keywords too many times, the current top limit is 5 percent of content you will be passed over as spam.

You may want to know how I know these things. As CEO of an on and offline corporation this information is important. Associates, friends, and many articles published by SEO and social media marketing experts keep me up to date daily. Since as a corporation we now teach others, being up to date is even more important. Voting up, interesting and SHARING.

Very interesting! I wish you would have shared more as I wanted to know more details, but this is good to know as I do share a ton of other hubbers' writings when I am too busy to comment. Do you think that the Google traffic is directly connected to the amount that you share others' hubs? I wonder why this may be true. Great work and thanks for sharing. I will be sharing this too.

Congratulations on your increased views! Brett did indeed have a great idea and I know for sure it does make a big difference, because it made a big difference for me as well. Some people have been complaining about so many social shares on their home feeds so I try to limit my shares there to one a day, but do share in other forums and other networking sites.

Thank you for the mention, glad it has worked out for you. I have read a few hubs about the results and it is really great to see the HUGE difference it makes :-).

But, not only are you helping yourself, by sharing other hubbers writing, you will make friends and help them to get more traffic too!! How can that be a bad thing??

Great hub, up, awesome and of course SOCIALLY SHARING!
