Traffic Building on Hubpages 101

Experienced users, skip down to 

How do we help each other?

Something here for everyone of all experience levels.

If there were a way that you could get 200 diggs per article.....?

What are some of the benefits of Digg.com and other social bookmarking?

1. Digg is great for notifying all the search engine bots that your site exists and has been updated.

2. It creates a powerful back link that will move your site up in search engine ranking position.

3. It creates a second link to your site that also gets ranked in a Google search. But it has much authority and will rank high on Google.

4. You will get traffic from Digg fans and readers.

5. Enough Diggs in a short period of time will get you on the front page of Digg. This can get you 10,000 to 50,000 hits in a single day and repeat visitors to your site.
6. Attracting outside traffic in to your Hubpage is good for you and everyone else on Hubpages.
7. Bringing traffic to Hubpages can't hurt your Hub scores!

This kind of traffic can be monitized with adsense or affiliate links.

HubShare1

You'd probably want to know how. Wouldn't you?

Take a look at these two images.

"Hubshare1" is the lower portion of a typical Hub and I've put a RED CIRCLE around the "Share" button.
Click on the "Share" button and you arrive at the "Share this page..." window.

See "Hubshare2" image below.
From there, you can click on as many of the social networks that you want to use. I've included RED DOTS next to the ones I use most often.
Don't forget to use the "Share with followers" [on Hubpages] button as it will alert all your followers of your new article. I use this one first, because you won't leave that screen and you can quickly move on to another choice.

HubShare2

How do we help each other?

There is a group over on Facebook called, "Digg and be Dugg".  Members there post what they want dugg on the group wall and other diggers digg it for them.  The group is based on PARTICIPATION and RECIPROCITY.  If you want your stuff to get lots of diggs, then digg everyone else's.  Check for the link in this article.

OK, now I have a question.  Can we get an organized effort for digging amongst Hubbers?Is there a forum for that?  Somewhere we can post articles to be dugg?

I do post my hubs on Digg and several other places but I don't get that many people checking them out. I will check our the Facebook site. Thanks for an interesting hub.

my my what an interesting gentleman you are - and you look so debonair in that hat!

A class act I'd say just like your hubs.

And referring to this page - in your editorial opinion is hubpages more about commerce than art - or a bit of both?

FCEtier 6 years ago from Cold Mountain Author

Thank you, epigramman!

It's a bit of both. I took to writing so show another side of my artistic ability -- didn't want people to think I was just a photographer.

While I cannot directly attribute any of my online photography sales to Hubpages, sales are in fact up!

..."just a photographer." Worse things could be said about a person if their photography is good. :-)

I haven't had much success with "Digg" in terms of traffic.

No matter what I submit, it doesn't seem to get enough "diggs" to drive traffic to make it worth while.......I will say it's been great for getting my HUBS indexed.

However this group you are referring to on Facebook, sounds interesting. I take it you have to be a Facebook memeber !!!!!!!

Thanks for the info !!!!!!!!!

Derek,

Yes you have to be on FB to participate. Right now, we're ave about 15 diggs per article and growing all the time.

It takes a concerted effort to get 200+ diggs. Some companies actually pay people to digg their stuff for them. I can't afford that.

Do you think there's sufficient interest to start a group on Hubpages to digg each other's articles?

FCEtier,

The only way to tell would be to put it out there and see how many people are interested.

With as large of a community here at Hubpages, the ability for Hubbers to help "digg" each others Hubs has the potential to benefit all that participate....

I think it amounts to time invested vs benefits (i.e traffic). I certainly don't mind investing time into something that reaps results.

I would certainly be interested in giving it a shot !!!!!

Thanks

Derek

Hi FCEtier,

I thought our followers will be auto notified once we have our new hub out. Why is there a need to click "share with followers?"

Thanks for sharing "Digg". I have plenty to learn. In fact I have twitter and facebook, but not familiar with them. Will have to learn fast.

And thanks for "following" me.

Good Guy,

"I thought our followers will be auto notified once we have our new hub out. Why is there a need to click "share with followers?"

I'm not sure. I figured an extra reminder wouldn't hurt! LOL

Fabulous hub! These are the very hubs I like most - helping one another become more successful! So happy I came across you and look forward to your future writings.

If a group has not yet been started on Hubpages to

"Digg" eachother's hub's - it should be!! Let me know what I can do to help with this if you are still interested.
