Did you wait until you had plenty of hubs and the ad accounts activated before you started promoting your hubs or did you start promoting right away?
You should start promoting as soon as the hub is ready. Whence ads get activated it will be additional benefit. Whence promoting hubs avoid spam sites or you will experience the reverse.
I haven't really figured out a promotion strategy yet.
I was somehow pinned and picked up on Facebook which is cool, but it wasn't anything I did.
I'm sure there is a hub out there to tell me how to promote my hubs!
I pin and post to Facebook as I finish each one, and I send out links to two to four each time I send an email to my subscribers. Currently, Facebook and Pinterest are my top sources of traffic.
I pin and soon after publishing or updating my hub. Pinning images and writing a good description with keywords has brought some really good traffic to my hubs. I also promote the hub on some groups on facebook.
It is advised to start promoting your hub as soon as you get it featured. There is no point in waiting. Moreover, you can promote your hubs via twitter, facebook, linkedin, etc.
It is good idea to list hubs in bookmarking sites and link them in networking sites like facebook.
Some experts mention in their hubs that we should wait until we have considerable amount of good hubs before we monetize. However i saw that after monetizing my hub by enabling ad programs. I enabled ad programs just after having my 1st featured hub. Do not know whether i have done anything wrong. I see i get some cents from the ad program but my amazon and ebay shows 0 cents. Is there anything i should work on. Pease help
I'm still only averaging making $30 a month, but I also only have five articles published so far. I started monetizing with ads straight away. I actually wrote a few articles, didn't get much feedback from them over the course of a few months, and so I walked away from Hub for good... or so I thought. It wasn't until my paypal account randomly informed me, one day, that I had $55 in my account that I came back (almost a year later) to discover my articles (one in particular) were drumming up quite an audience! For the past three months, since my discovery I've slowly but steadily worked on increasing my amount of articles (as well as UNpublishing or editing any old articles that received low scores and were effecting my overall score--that is very key), and promoting them through different avenues like Facebook, Pinterest and Twitter. I will also visit other articles, as well as blogs of similar topics, and comment with a link to my own article. Don't just rely on HubPages to get your articles viewed; take the initiative, yourself! You will probably be surprised just like I was!
Thanks a lot Mom in Gods. Your answer truly inspired me. I wrote 5 hubs so far and have few followers, i was on the verge of moving away from hub pages. I was thinking i will have to write hundreds of hubs to even earn few pennies. I checked your profile and it inspired me. Like to follow you. KIT. I am also a mom of a 8 year old girl.
I guess some things have changed because I swear I had to have 10 published hubs before I could activate the ads. I was thinking that was good to take me a loooong time!
Been reading up a bit on that and some hubbers day it depends on where on the planet you are! If you're outside the USA Google can take take six months. Hubpages still recommends to have at least ten good hubs before applying,for adsense. Hope this helps
Personally I see it as giving me time to make sure I do things thoroughly they did also say to keep trying with Google especially when you've got good quality hubs getting the traffic
Author "Wrylilt" has an excellent hub on creating Made for Pinterest Images (MPI). You all should read it. We Hubbers have and most find it has helped traffic a lot.
It tells you how to create an image with text that tells viewers what the image is about, which increases clicks to your HP page substantially.
Regarding promoting your hubs before having an Adsense account, personally I would wait until I had the account to promote on Twitter, Facebook, Google+ etc... Google + is mostly a one shot deal, you get a few hits for a week and then your post gets buried. If your post is going to go viral, wouldn't you want to benefit from it financially?
Benefit financially. Writers write for four reasons. 1: To clarify their thinking and improve Knowledge.
2: To teach and learn themselves (an internal exploration if you will).
3: To give knowledge and information to others.
4: To remove opaqueness and mist from a subject and generate discussion.
