Best way to drive external and internal traffic to your hubs

Twenty steps for increasing good quality traffic to your hubs

1. First of all, follow all the sites via the SHARE IT button on the hubs you have written.

2. Join some forums outside of hubpages like if bodybuilding is your specialty, then go and share your ideas on other forums related to the same and write some useful posts with links to your hubs in the signing line.

3. Send regular e-mails to your friends when you publish some hubs but do not annoy them.

4. Write hubs on topics, which are rare and useful. Check the keywords for them on search engines like "google". Keywords with search results below 200000 will go up very fast rather than keywords, which are already used by many people.

5. Immediately after publishing a new hub, create a skeleton blog or article on blog sites like blogger.

6. Don't think only of making money. Write as if you want to help someone. How to hubs work very well. The money will roll in with more visitors.

7. Write useful comments on other hubber's hubs and attract visitors from there. This will help both of you, the other hubber and yourself.

8. Remember to ping your hub manually on pingoat or pingomatic after publishing.

9. Join new social bookmarking and social networking sites and write a good profile of yours with links to your hubs.

10. I have noted that many visitors come up to my hubs to look at pics and videos so definitely do that, though I have not got so much time to do that on my own in my most recent hubs, but I have done that in my previous hubs which are ranking very well in the search engines.

11. Use google analytics to check for keywords which are getting a good number of visitors and earning a decent amount of adsense revenue. You can do this by connecting adsense and analytics together. Now go ahead and write hubs on best performing keywords but remember do not write hubs, which are of no use.

12. Leave fan mails to other hubber's profile for more internal exposure to your profile and hubs.

13. Do not leave a link on any outside or inside web page without writing anything. Think and write and then paste a link because sometimes leaving a link without any use is really annoying for other site owners.

14. Try to write one good quality hub daily.

15. Sometimes writing on controversial topics gets many more visitors than you would have expected.

16. I have noticed that when we write hubs answering questions asked by other hubbers, it helps much more than publishing a hub directly.

17. Take time to read your hub after writing and before publishing.

18. Minimize grammatical errors to get good quality traffic on your hubs.

19. Sometimes you will see the traffic decreasing on your hubs. Do not worry and do not lose hope, it will increase when the search engine spiders will index your hubs next.

20. I have noticed that traffic to my hubs increases on Wednesdays as I think Tuesday is the day in the week when google spiders search the net and index new content from web sites.

These were some of the useful tips, which have helped me in increasing my adsense revenue from 10 dollars to 55 dollars per month in the last six months without knowing any SEO. Hope these will also assist you in increasing the traffic to your hub and adding up to your adsense earnings. Best of luck. Always remember hard work pays. I say that because it has paid me.

I've been following your money-making tips and this is another useful one. I've yet to learn all the tricks but I intend to try to put some of your suggestions to work. Can u enlighten me about adsense? I notice I just signed up for content and there is a bunch of other sign-ups like domain, search and feeds. Do I sign up for those too? Or do I've to do something special to sign up for those?


Charia Samher profile image

Charia Samher 7 years ago

You're welcome; thanks as well! Btw I've tried "pinging" (is it the right term?!) one of my hub and the traffic rises so I better ping all of them. I don't have much hub as yours anyway so not so much work to =)

anglnwu profile image

anglnwu 7 years ago

I'm shamelessly clueless--how do you "ping"? Help!

soni2006 profile image

soni2006 7 years ago from New Delhi, India Author

Hi Charia and anglnwu, first of all, thank you very much for visiting this hub and appreciating it.

Secondly, for pinging just visit this site,, the home page will load up, now copy and paste your hub's title as it is in the BLOG NAME field, then copy and paste your hub's url into the BLOG URL field, now press general and special services and leave non-english services as our hubs are written in English no need to select non-english ones. Now press GO PINGOAT. A page will apear as showing pinging services, pinging technorati, pinging icerocket, etc. and now you are done with the pinging of your hub. Your hub will be displayed on the home page of all these sites. For checking if the pinging is accurate immediately after pinging, visit again the home page and you will see these buttons

Adsense Arbitrage Report The GoatLog Pingoat tools Link! Recently updated blogs Click on recently updated blogs and you will able to see your hub updated on pingoat's system. Best of luck for pinging. Thirdly for anglnwu query for adsense related stuff, yes you can signup for domains if you have a domain or your own website, you can sign up for search and include the search button in your blogs and not at hubpages, you can also sign up for feeds, and even you can sign up for adsense for mobiles if you want to display google adsense ads on mobile phones. I hope this comment answers your query. If you are facing any problems, you can let me know via a comment on this hub.

Soni2006, i can always count on u for good and generous advice--thank you so much for the information. I'm going to try to work on "pinging" and will also upgrade my adsense to include all your suggestions. I'm still working on setting up a website--we last talked about it on one of your hubs. Also, I've linked one of your useful hub to my hub "Cliches--to use or not to use?"--won 2nd place in hubnugget selection.

Once, again, thank you so very much.

To my 200th Fan! Wow - This was a great list. Thanks, Soni. I did not know about Google indexing new pages on Wednesday - That's excellent info. Since I'm in asia i often work during the day here so my content appears on the web when it's day time in North America. How has blogspot worked for you for getting traffic? I've been lazy about that one. thanks, dawei888

soni2006 profile image

soni2006 7 years ago from New Delhi, India Author

Hi dawei first of all thanks for visiting my hub. Yes I have observed it several times in my life as a content writer that google spiders index new fresh content on Tuesday night and we can see the major update on Wednesday here in India. Regarding blogspot, yes it is working good for me for driving traffic towards my newly published and also old hubs. You are welcome if you have more queries for the same.

Soni2006, I tried to ping--followed all your instructions and when I went to check, my page wouldn't load--it's says Error.  Any idea? Also, do I have to ping it each time I publish something?


soni2006 profile image

soni2006 7 years ago from New Delhi, India Author

anglnwu, pingoat and all the pinging stuff is working fine for me. You just have to ping it one time and not twice, that might be the reason you are recieving error. You can also try if pingoat is not working in your area.

You can also try
