I'm not sure how this hub thing works. How can I ensure more people will see my hub? Is there a way for me to advertise my hubs? And what about getting paid--I'm doing this more out of hobby than as a means to get a paycheck, but how does that work? How can I keep my score from going down?
If you open up the menu under your user name you'll find 'learning centre' - all your answers are there. Good luck with Hubpages
I would suggest writing more commercial hubs. Positive, problem solving topics or public interest stories.
I'd have to agree with the rest here. Give your audience what they want.
You should comment on hubs that you like, with more than just "great hub". You should also follow hub authors that interest you. Chances are they'll follow you right back.
Post your hubs to Facebook, Twitter, Google+, etc. If you don't have those accounts you should go ahead and get them. There's a good chance several of your real-life friends already have one or more of these accounts.
Realize that it takes a while to get a good following. I've been here for 3 months, posted 19 hubs, and have amassed 15 followers, and have had over 700 views. And that was with almost entirely writing only short stories.
Yes, as Johndnathan has said the onus of promotional efforts is your job. HP only provides the tools and platform. Advertising is on you. Just make sure you don't go to bad 'neighborhoods', never use bad seo techniques or spam anybody. Read the TOS for the big 'G' and HP Others also use other blogs, writing sites and 'netizen' writing sites for exposure. Use the search bar at the top to find forums and hubs about 'generating traffic', promotion .... welcome to HP btw
