    Now there's a shocker... A lament.

    Let's accumulate a Top 10 List of ways to get more traffic.

    I'll start.

    Pinterest does work.

      Scoop.It , Facebook and Twitter but when used in combination.

        Twitter has been really good to me when it comes to tweeting posts from a certain other site that shall remain nameless.

      Joining Yahoo groups that are for you niche and then sharing your work. Redgage does bring a little daily traffic. Join forums for your niches.
      Write for other content sites and share your link.

      I agree with using Pinterest. In the summer months, I get more traffic from there than I do from Google USA.

        Joining Yahoo Groups is something I have not done. I guess it's time for me to poke them with a stick.

      Write about subjects which are more looked for with search engines, (Google, Yahoo, Bing...). Use an adequate amount of keywords in your Hubs with a keyword finder such as Google Trends, use more photos/videos; polls & quizzes, etc.

    Use good titles, use relevant key words , but do not overstuff your article with keywords, Use Google + in combination with twitter, facebook , and use google webmaster and bing webmaster tools .. use hubpages groups to link your hubs together to name a few smile Happy Hubbing smile

      Bing WMT is something else I never did get around to doing. I started this thread out of boredom, but it has turned out to be worthwhile. I now have two items for my to-do list.

        I forgot to mention that I have a Paper.li E-newspaper and it does provide me with several visit per day.
        Here is the link in case you may want to start your own:

    As you mentioned, Pinterest really does work. Adding an interesting caption to an excellent photo really enhances Pinterest traffic. Beauty, DIY and craft hubs tend to work the best in terms of traffic.

    When analysing competition in Google, I have found Niche Market Finder to be very handy. It is a free tool that shows the PageRank of all the competing websites for a group of keywords. It is then easy to see, how strong or weak the competition is. Rather than assessing the competition myself by manually checking the PR of the first and second websites, I find this much easier.

    I think that seasonal hubs can bring in higher traffic during their peak months, however, they then lie dead for the rest of the year. But for some good short-term traffic and a continual high stream of traffic during its top month or season, I think that seasonal hubs are best.

    I am looking forward to see what others say.

      They love gardening and recipes on Pinterest too.

    -An old fashioned email with hub link sent to family, friends, and associates. Tell them to check out your latest article and feel free to share with others. Hopefully, they will tell two friends, and so on, and so on . . .
    -Find a website or e-newsletter in your niche. Ask the editor to post a link to your article that would be beneficial to readers of that site.
    -Edit, edit, edit, update, update, update hubs every two to three months.

      Thats all good advice, and ya know it seems everyone should have family and friends, however that is an assumption. What about the people who do not have family and friends? What do they do? Who do they reach out to for traffick?

        Good point about it being an assumption. I was aware of that when I posted. But I still wanted to share it because it does work well for those who have a large address book and may consider email ancient and not useful.

    Well, thanks to starme77, I did the Bing signup thing. I even enlightened them about the infamous websitewithnoname while I was at it.

    I'll check back in a few days and see if traffic data is showing up for those two sites. If it does, then I know I did it all right. Them and their Microsoft accounts...; pain in the neck.

    I sent them a note informing them that 1000 visitors a day to each site would be a good start. They said they'd get back to me on that.

    On a serious note, the summer downslide does indeed seem to have begun. So, if my next weekend's traffic is not less than my last weekend's traffic, I will consider this whole thing a resounding success.

      Update. Well, been 30 hours, give or take. According to HP, Bing has dropped by 11 times. That's too high to call them slackers, and too low to get unduly excited. Oh, well. Leastwise I don't have to feel guilty anymore about not doing the signup. .

        up your crawl rate in Bing and wait for a few weeks because bing only updates every other week smile
