    After publishing a hub, what are the immediate things we need to do?  I usually share it with Facebook, Pin interest and Twitter.  Is it enough or do we need some extra work? In that case, please suggest some sure methods fetching good results.

      I recommend stopping by our Learning Center, which has several guides on the subject: http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/contents

      I use Twitter and Deviantart to spread the word. It's worked well enough so far. I'd also have friends read them and tell their friends and family.

      When I wrote my first few hubs, I used facebook, twitter, stumbleupon, delicious etc.. Now I use only fb and twitter because I find that I get good traffic from google if I concentrate on the quality and content of my hubs.

        Thank you. What about Yahoo? Should we try that also?

          I get some traffic from yahoo but not as much as google. I don't really have time to try all that stuff, the search engines will find the hubs rather quickly if they contain high quality content.

      Besides Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, another useful one is Scoopit. When you post there it automatically sends the links to Tumbler, Twitter, and Facebook too.
      Here is their link: http://www.scoop.it/

      You need to join couple of Facebook groups, forums and some awesome communities like Bizsugar. In a nutshell, you need to be on as many places as possible to get noticed.

    That's a good start, but it only gets you so far, especially if others on Facebook etc. don't share your hub's link as well. What you need to do (and I must admit, I'm guilty of not doing this often enough), is backlinking.

    The easiest way of backlinking is by blog commenting. What you do is go to Google and look up 'top xxxx blogs'...whatever your basic topic is about. Then go to the recommended sites and find a blog that you can add a useful comment on. Make sure there's quite a few comments already.

    If you hover your mouse over some of the other commenters usernames, you may see a website link indicated at the bottom of the browser. If you see nothing, that blog doesn't allow the url to be shown. Move on, as these won't help you much. If instead, there is a variety of website links shown (and not the blog's website for each one), go ahead and comment. In the comment 'URL' text box, paste in your hub's url (in full, including the http:// part).

    Do this on two or three blogs a day for a month or so. Then check to see where your hub is in the search results. This should get you quite a few more views.

    There's more you can do of course, but it gets into a situation where you pay to have your links listed in directories, and on multiple sites, etc.

    I'll stop here, as it's getting a bit long. Do some research on backlinking, if you want to get more serious about promoting your stuff.

      Hi Timorous,

      You have taken care and time to answer my query in a beautiful way. Thanks for the efforts and sharing your knowledge here.

    I back link using my own blog.  I also search for additional blogs that feature specific topics and if I find one that relates to my currant blog I add my comment in depth along with a link to my hub.

    I also share with FB, Twitter and Pinterest, but I make sure I back link to other sites.  Having said all this, if your hub has weak content and is not helpful to others, no amount of back linking is going to make much difference.

    Write good rich content with relative photos, videos, polls etc. and the traffic will come (as long as folks know you're out there.)

    Presentation is important for your hub.  It's an indicator of how professional you are and can even tell quite a bit about you, the writer.  But - that's another subject smile

    I wish you the best!

    I liked the advice on Back linking which I don't do a lot. But now I will start doing it. Presently, I simply share my hubs with Delicious, StumbleUpon, Pinterest, Digg, Twitter & sometimes reditt too.

      Hi gags3480,
      Forgive me, I'm so new to this thing still, but how do these things work that you promote your Hubs on? I know Twitter, but have not heard of the rest. I never thought about promoting my hubs outside of Facebook, so I am really glad that this thread was started! Any help you can provide is very much appreciated!

        Please see the comments made by our beloved hubber Simone Smith. The hub she suggested is useful and narrative. So please read the same.

        Hi Angie, Great that you asked this. To promote your hubs & get good traffic I recommend you 4 sites, StumbleUpon, Pinterest, Digg & Reditt. It's free to make an account here. Then just bookmark these sites. Whenever you publish your hub or afterwards also, you just need to copy your link & share it on these sites. I guarantee you will see the traffic increasing pretty soon. In case you have any other question then do ask.

    Well sharing on social media sites will promote your hub. As we see all promoting steps are already given  by @timorous and @Simone. They have explained very well.

    Hi,

    Sharing via social media is the best way and you can also do the activity on different forums as well.

    Sharing your hubs to social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter and Tumbler will bring more traffic. I guess writing search friendly articles and using the right keywords will also be helpful. I am just new here... and I'm finding ways to learn this method. I guess it will take more time and will require extra efforts, but the effects are so rewarding as what other hubbers say.
