      I get a reasonable amount of traffic from Facebook, but it has not been from buyers. I find social bookmarking to be useful for developing an online presence, but not for directly creating income.
      I also find the bookmarking sites to be annoying. I do not want to kick, lick or do anything else to my visitors and find it all a bit silly.

    Three is a substantially-sized Hubber FaceBook group already, but I don't think FaceBook is generating much traffic for us overall.

      Do tell how much money it has made for you in 6 weeks lol

    I'd be intrigued by how much traffic your getting from Facebook. I've been actively adding links and sharing with friends now for months and have only had 349 visits, and I get 1500pv a day.

    I guess the more friends you have the better, but you need loads of content too.

    @johnb - What % of your traffic is from FB? And from that could you give me a rough estimate of the kind of earning you have made from it?

    I meant TRAFFIC not MONEY!

      Most of us here are looking for qualified traffic, i.e. traffic that wants to spend money.

      You can generate huge traffic from Stumbleupon, for instance, but Stumblers never click on ads.  If you have a large network on Facebook, I imagine you could get some decent traffic too - but once again, I suspect they're not the kind of readers who would click on ads (unless they think they're doing you a favour by clicking, in which case they can even create trouble for you).

      So why is your hub on the subject entitled, "Making Money on Hubpages Through Facebook"?

    I never get much traffic from anything I've posted on Facebook and am not keen on the site because of all the rubbish mail you are bound to get there although I am told some people think it's a lot of fun! They must have a lot more time on their hands than me!

  7. johnb0127 profile image76
    johnb0127posted 8 years ago

    Because when you get traffic to your hubs, people click on the ads which you then make money.  You look like an expert, you should know this.

    Also, not all traffic clicks on the ads, only targeted one does. You as a Facebook expert surely know this lol

      johnb0127posted 8 years ago in reply to this

      So your saying that people on Facebook aren't interested in the ads?  How do you know?  Are YOU an expert?  smile

        I am not writing hubs about making money on HP through FB just yet, and don't pretend to be an expert in FB. When I will, I will be able to defend what I write smile
        And of course I do not break forum rules by posting promotional links - yes I am an expert in this smile

    I'm not terribly impressed with Facebook thus far.

    Face book is where I connect with old friends and a few new ones ... When I post a link to a hub on facebook, I see a spike in traffic on that hub and sometimes a few others over the next day or two.  The question, for me, is not is it profitable, but do my friends actually read what I write. A lot do, and sometimes we talk about it.

    90% of my facebook friends are people I've met over the years in real life.

    90% of my Hubpages friends are people I only know from hub pages

    Money? Nah, neither makes me any money. But it is interesting!

    (As far as I can tell, the only one who makes any money at this is Mark)

      Misha does OK too - but I don't think either of us are too impressed with a newbie writing a hub about how to make money from facebook visits big_smile

      Especially one who loves police scanners, teaches you how to be a real christian, adds links to hubs on subjects he know FA about and doesn't even have a facebook link on his user page. big_smile

    2. johnb0127 profile image76
      johnb0127posted 8 years ago in reply to this

      Yeah.  In the hub I didn't say you would ABSOLUTELY POSITIVELY make money, its just a way to generate traffic.  I would change the name, but the url would stay the same sad.  Although technically it wouldn't make any difference if I renamed the hub Getting Traffic to Your Hubs Through Facebook because traffic is what generated money.  I don't care how many times you call me a "newbie" or not an expert, but I know about Hubpages through Facebook because people I know have talked to me about my hubs and like them.  I may not be an expert (even though my ranking is LOL big_smile), but I do know how to generate traffic to hubs through facebook!

        Then surely your hub is deceptively titled...

    Mark - Just wanted to say I like your hub on getting your hub to be on Google's first page.  Its informative and very intelligent.  Good Job!

    All I did was put a URL to my profile here on my Facebook profile and it has generated a good many views. Maybe it is just my wife looking but page views is how we eventually make some money here.  (Of course, she will never buy anything)  And I got the idea from the original hub discussed here.  So I for one say thanks.

      Finally!  Someone who actually reads and heads the advice of the hub instead of putting it down!  LOL Thanks bgpappa

    Ok, well then perhaps you can answer my first question, how much traffic have you seen off Facebook? What % is it of your overall page views, and what does that equal in money terms through Adsense?

    I'm just intrigued to see if other people have a similar conversion ratio to mine.

    Oh, and even if the URL stays the same, it would surly look better if you changed the title.

    1. johnb0127 profile image76
      johnb0127posted 8 years ago in reply to this

      I have actually seen approx. 35% percent of my traffic through hubpages.  That may not seen like alot, but hey, ITS TRAFFIC!

  14. WHoArtNow profile image83
    WHoArtNowposted 8 years ago

    35% from facebook is huge compared to my 0.3%. What's your overall page views though? 35% of 1000 is ok, 35% of 100,000 is awesome.

    1. johnb0127 profile image76
      johnb0127posted 8 years ago in reply to this

      HA!  Yeah my overall page views in only around 1000 (beginner).  So its around 35% of 1000, which as you said aint too bad...

    right, similar to me, I've had 359 from facebook, out of a total of 123,057, you can see why I don't rank facebook to highly.

    1. johnb0127 profile image76
      johnb0127posted 8 years ago in reply to this

      Ha, thats true.  I guess its because I promote my hubs A LOT over facebook.  I don't have a blog or a website, so Facebook is pretty much all I got! Lol

        I don't have a blog or website tp promote from either. There are plenty of places to promote, Digg, Stumbleupon, Mixx etc etc. And don't forget relevant forums either, all traffic helps after all.

          Yeah.  I just became of member of Stumbleupon yesterday but havent learned how to use it.  What is Digg?

    Digg is a social bookmarking site that allows you to list your sites, blogs and hubpages.
