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.
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).
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!
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 And of course I do not break forum rules by posting promotional links - yes I am an expert in this
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)
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 . 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 ), but I do know how to generate traffic to hubs through facebook!
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.
What with all the "how much money can you make here?" questions. I have decided to share some of my own experiences. Clearly there are higher paying pages than others, but as far as adsense goes, these are my...
Fine, the forum has lots of people that claims they make thousands of dollars every month. I doubt 98% of them. From my experience, I may want to believe Ryankett because I've seen most of his backlinking works on...
I have just started, so I dont expect it in the near future, but how many hubs, or how many months before you start making money? How much traffic is considered to be good traffic? Right now I am getting...
I will teach anyone, anything they want to know on how to make the best hubs if they can just expain to me what i'm doing wrong that they don't make any money. I'm betting that this is purely a computer knowledge...
Hi everyone, I just browsed through some topics on forum because I needed help. I joined Hubpages 11 months ago, and I have about 40 Hubs, my overall ratings are $5 on Adsense and about $15 on Ad program til now. Now I...
