5 Things New Bloggers Can Do To Get More Traffic and Comments on Their Hubs and Blog Articles

5 Things You Can Do Now To Get Noticed Writing On HubPages

Source

You Just Joined HubPages? What Should You Do Now?

HubPages is a great place to get started if you want to write online, makes some friends, learn, and potentially earn money as you go!

So maybe you just joined or you joined a while ago but never checked out the site. Great! Welcome to HubPages!

There are many things that Hubbers can do on HubPages. Each Hubber is different and has their own personal reasons for joining the site.

Some are here just to make money while other's don't care about making money and are just here for the experience. Whatever your reason for joining, you are here and you want to make the most of your experience.

This article will discuss some of the things you can do right away on HubPages even if you are not ready to write Hubs. Following some of these suggestions will help you get familiar with HubPages, it's features and the most incredible community on the web!


Read and Comment On Hubs to Get To Know People Better!

Source

1. Read Other Hubber's Hubs and Leave Insightful Comments

By reading other Hubber's Hubs you will get a better understanding of what looks good as far as formatting your own Hubs and you might find some inspiration from another Hubber.

Reading other's Hubs and leaving Insightful comments is a great way to meet new friends and get people to follow you back.

HubPages is a great community with "micro" communities of Hubbers that follow, comment and share each other's Hubs. Leaving Insightful Comments shows the Author Appreciation, allows for Suggestions and Positive Feedback, and is a great opportunity to share what you know and what you think about the topic of a Hub.


Talk With Other Hubbers!

Source

2. Join a Conversation in the Forums

The Forums on HubPages are a great place to meet and engage with fellow Hubbers. There is a Forum on just about every topic imaginable, and if you can't find the Forum you are looking for, you can start your own new Forum Thread! As long as you are respectful of others and follow the HubPages Forum Rules and Guidelines, you can learn a lot and make some new friends!

Just remember that the Internet allows users to remain "anonymous" if they choose to. Always use caution when seeking professional advice as people may not always be who they appear to be. If you stick to fun topics that interest you in the forums, you can enjoy great discussions or "debates" (think politics and religion!) if that is what you enjoy!

Did you know that HubPages has a Learning Center that is filled with very useful articles that explain just about everything related to HubPages! Want to learn about Making Money on HubPages? Maybe you would like to learn more about Adding Videos and Photos to your Hub Articles?

Whatever you are looking for in terms of HubPages, you can find it in the Learning Center. If you can't find it there, you can always post your questions in the Help Forum. There is no limit to the amount of support you will get from other Hubbers and the HubPages Staff!

4. Join the Weekly Topic Inspiration Program!

The Weekly Topic Inspiration Program is a great way to meet other Hubbers, get started writing Hubs all while getting some exposure to your Hubs.

Each week, the staff posts a topic suggestion and Hubbers can write Hubs that are related to the weekly topic.

This is a great tool for those who aren't sure what to write about or are suffering from Writer's Block! Many Hubbers do it just for the fun of it!

5. Challenge Yourself! Join a Hub Challenge!

There are several Challenges on HubPages for those who are brave enough to try them out! The most popular is the "30 Hubs in 30 Days Challenge". Think you can write 30 Hubs in 30 Days? Maybe you are more ambitious and prefer a bigger challenge. Maybe you want to publish "100 Hubs in 30 Days"! It has been done before!

If you think 30 or 100 is too many to start off with, that's OK. You can do a "15 Hubs in 30 Days" Challenge or maybe you just want to challenge yourself. Completing a Hub Challenge is rewarding and you can gain the many benefits of Taking the Challenge!

  • Getting Traffic and Exposure to your Hubs
  • Make some New Friends
  • Potential to Earn through the Affiliate Advertising Programs
  • Learn about Yourself and Your Own Writing
  • Define Your Style and Become a Better Writer
  • These are Just a Few of the Benefits of taking a Hub Challenge!

homesteadbound, as someone who has completed not 1, but Three 30/30 Challenges in just a few short (7) months (204 Hubs Published I should add...), you are an example of Persistence, Originality, Friendship, and Success!

I remember your first days here and I have not only watched you grow as a Hubber, I have grown with you and enjoyed the journey and experiences that you have shared.

You are Top Shelf! I look forward to the future and wish you continued success! Thanks for stopping by! I will be so glad after tomorrow when this Challenge is Complete! It's been a great journey!

Turtlewoman 4 years ago from California

Well well well if it isn't the awesome JSMatthews. I've been following your HubPages tutorial during the 30/30 and I must say I wish you had written them 3 months ago when I joined! They're very helpful and informative. The picture of the donkey is my favorite too...it is a donkey right? I've done 4 out of the 5 tips you mentioned. I shy away from the forums only because from what I've read so far, there seems to be too many strong opinions on there. Ha!

Voted up and useful and all of the above.


J.S.Matthew profile image

J.S.Matthew 4 years ago from Massachusetts, USA Author

Hello Turtlewoman! You have been quite busy on HubPages yourself lately! Congrats on your Hub of the Day as well as your completion of the 30/30 Challenge while answering questions for the March Contest!

When I first started on HubPages there were no definitive guides for the site and the Learning Center was very small! I kept notes, did research and now I am trying to give newer Hubbers a jump-start by sharing what I have learned.

The photo in question is of a goat that I saw that had crooked teeth-some kind of dental deformity. He instantly became my favorite goat and I took some photos of him!

I generally stay away from the forums myself but some people like the interaction and the debate. I find a lot of debate in the political and religious forums. Sometimes I just read the forums because they are so hilarious!

I appreciate your comment and votes! Thanks for stopping by and keep up the great work!

Faith Reaper profile image

Faith Reaper 4 years ago from southern USA

Hi J.S.Matthew, it's me again, Faith Reaper. I've noticed on my hubs and not on others' hubs, that once I approve a comment, then a red deny one pops up and stays up? Is that something only I am seeing, as it is on my hub, or is there a problem? Duh again. Appreciate your knowledge, as you said "anytime." Bless you.


J.S.Matthew profile image

J.S.Matthew 4 years ago from Massachusetts, USA Author

Hello Faith Reaper!

The "deny" and "reply" buttons will always be there. This is true for all hubs and hubbers. The reason you only see yours is because you are only given these options on your own hubs. I see the same buttons on all my hubs too! Ask me anytime!

J.S.Matthew~


Faith Reaper 4 years ago

I figured it was something like that, and I knew you would know. Thanks once again. You are still awesome. Faith Reaper


J.S.Matthew profile image

J.S.Matthew 4 years ago from Massachusetts, USA Author

No problem Faith Reaper! Always happy to help! Happy Hubbing!

JSMatthew~


Faith Reaper profile image

Faith Reaper 4 years ago from southern USA

Hey J.S. Matthew - on my hub, when I reply, why doesn't my profile picture show up any longer? I could understand if it was that my comment had to be approved on another hub, other than my own hub, or does it just take a while? Also, sometimes it won't let you reply separately to more than one comment, so does your comment go to that particular person if you just make one comment, or would they have to read the hub to find out my reply? Thanks once again, Faith Reaper


J.S.Matthew profile image

J.S.Matthew 4 years ago from Massachusetts, USA Author

Hello Faith Reaper!

That is just the way the site is designed. If you close out your Hub after you leave a comment and then re-open your Hub you should see your comment and your photo. It wasn't always this way but I noticed this change a few months ago when they added the "Reply" buttons to our pages.

Regardless of what order you respond to your comments, they will appear by whichever was posted first; they are posted chronologically. Once you reply to a comment or leave a comment in the comment box at the bottom, you will need to refresh the page to see your comment. If someone is following your individual Hub then they will be alerted when a new comment is left by you or any other commenter (once it is approved) and so they should be able to see when you comment back. I hope this answers your questions!

JSMatthew~


Faith Reaper profile image

Faith Reaper 4 years ago from southern USA

Yes, it does! Thank you very much once again. I hope this is my last time to inquire of your mind. Faith Reaper

LauraGT profile image

LauraGT 4 years ago from MA

Thanks for the tips and encouragement. I am definitely enjoying writing and the community. But, I do have a question: Does increased visibility on hubpages affect whether google picks up your hub or not? Perhaps this is answered in the forums, but these seems like a logical place to ask as well! Thanks!


J.S.Matthew profile image

J.S.Matthew 4 years ago from Massachusetts, USA Author

Hello LauraGT! The writing and community are great on HubPages! Your question is hard to answer. You can get a ton of traffic from HP because people like your content but get hardly any traffic from Google on the same Hub. And vice-versa! My top traffic Hub only has like 15 comments! (it's a movie review of the "Haunting In Connecticut" seems people are searching for that one a lot!)

If you get a lot of views on HubPages it will show as a trusted and reputable site to Google, but to be on the top of searches it is about keywords, title and content. It can't hurt to get a lot of HP traffic but it will not guarantee success in the search engines. There really is a lot of research involved.

I hope this answers your question! Thanks for stopping by and feel free to contact me if you have other questions!

This is a TERRIFIC hub for beginners and a good reminder hub for those of us who have been around a while and might not be utilizing all of the things available to us to enhance our writing and get attention to our hubs. Sending this directly to a new hubber who just joined a day ago and voting this up, useful and will SHARE so that many others can learn from you. Thanks!

Hi J.S. Matthew, I read the Learning Center about Hub Groups and followed the instructions for creating Hub Groups under my account, but when I thought I was finished, it would not allow me to leave the page and said I needed to click cancel, which I did, and then click the Submit button below the drop and drag, but there was no Submit button? Thanks again for any advice, Faith Reaper


J.S.Matthew profile image

J.S.Matthew 4 years ago from Massachusetts, USA Author

Hello Faith Reaper! I am not sure what is going on there. I am hoping that by now the problem has resolved itself. If you continue to experience the problem, I suggest posting the question in the Help Forum and if that doesn't provide the answer, you can always contact the HP staff. Sorry I couldn't be of more help! Sounds like it was just a glitch.

hotwebideas 4 years ago from New York

Hey JS, love it. Thanks for the ideas. It's all good information. I am now uploading videos for my last 4 hubs.


J.S.Matthew profile image

J.S.Matthew 4 years ago from Massachusetts, USA Author

Hello there hotwebideas! Adding videos to Hubs is a great idea as it adds to your overall Hub content. Did you know that you can now create Videos (as a video Hub) to HubPages? If you choose this format you can have the video the first content capsule at the top of the page and the video will auto-play (similar to video sites like YouTube)

This is great because when people search for videos on Google and other search engines, HubPages is now able to compete with other video sites...but, we are better because we can still add all the capsules to the Video Hub as if it were a regular Hub! How many Video Sites can say that? If you are not sure how to add this new feature let me know and I can share the links with you. They are in the Learning Center.

Adding multiple capsule (like quizzes, polls, charts, etc.) will also help you get rated as a good resource in search engines. The more variety in your content that you have, the better you should do in search rankings.

I am glad this was useful to you and I appreciate your comment!

Great Hub, as always. My only comment is: now that our profiles have changed, I noticed my comments in the Forum shows for all the world to see. I don't care for that. Makes me reluctant to say anything.

Thanks for all the good advice. I voted this Hub UP, etc.

Hello mary615! Personally, I don't "do" forums. Too much drama many times and I just don't have the time! Other than that, I love the new profile and how we can customize it the way we like. Glad you liked this Hub! Thanks for your comment and votes!

This hub has great advice, especially for someone fairly new. I have done 30 hubs in 30 days, and a 60 day challenge. Now time is a little tighter due to personal reasons and I also do freelance writing when I am requested. I still love Hubpages and hope to be able to devote more time here in the near future.

J.S.Matthew 3 years ago from Massachusetts, USA Author

Hello Pamela99! Wow! I did one 30/30 Challenge and I doubt I'll attempt it again! I can't imagine 60... It's nice to see you. I was away for a while too. Moved and dealt with tons of snow this winter. I appreciate you stopping by!

I loved how in depth this hub goes on explaining how to get the traffic to your hubpages.Also don't forget about the power of twitter and facebook too.Those are some very good ways of getting traffic too.

Hello surfer1969! You are right; social media has a great impact on traffic if you have a targeted audience. I have seen decent returns from Twitter. Thanks for adding to the discussion!

This is so comprehensive and so complete. What a great help for all Hubbers, not just newbies, Thanks!


J.S.Matthew profile image

J.S.Matthew 2 years ago from Massachusetts, USA Author

@Shyron E Shenko: Hi there! I often get comments like this from a lot of Hubbers that have been around long enough to make mistakes and learn the ropes. I constructed a few different Hubs that reflect these same principles because I too wish there were things I knew from the beginning. Everything I have learned is from trial and error, other Hubbers, and of course, the HubPages Learning Center.

You have to admit though, for those of us who stick around, keep writing and researching, it is satisfying when we produce a great well-read and used Hub article. A writer's reward is not merely money; it is readership. I am so happy you found this and that it is helpful to you. I really appreciate your comment. I wish the best of success to you! Happy Hubbing!

@rebeccamealey: Thank you. Your words mean a lot to me. I worked hard on this as well as a series of Hubs I wrote on similar topics. I really did deep research and I have been lucky to meet some great Hubbers and even some of the HP staff. I have tried to put together all the things I have learned in the last 4 years and share them with others so that they can save time and make less mistakes! Thanks for stopping by!
