      I'm curious about how you attract readers from Reddit, which is extremely aggressive in banning people who promote their own links.

        Oh wow, Flipboard is doing great for you.  How do you get referrals from Mturk?

        1. Margie Lynn profile image83
          Margie Lynnposted 3 months ago in reply to this

          I have sign up and did a few thing on Mturk, I really do not know! Sorry, I know that is no help. I am still learning!

          Mturk is just a crowdsourcing platform which Hubpages hires to check new hubs. So it's just people being paid to check your hubs for quality.

            Thanks WryLilt for answering this question!

    You should try creating some content for YouTube as well.

    If you create quality content, often it can find its way to be shared on facebook, reddit and beyond..

      I have content on YouTube:
      <link snipped>

      Most of the recent videos link to HP as well.  Is that what you meant?

    2. promisem profile image94
      promisemposted 3 months ago in reply to this

      So far I haven't found YouTube to be worthwhile for attracting readers or generating enough revenue to make video production worthwhile. But maybe  others do better.

      Thanks!  Are Google, Yahoo, and Bing all organic, as far as you can tell?

      1. lobobrandon profile image80
        lobobrandonposted 3 months ago in reply to this

        Google, Yahoo and Bing have to be organic no other way. Unless they're ads which I'm sure no one would pay for to link to HP.

          revolutionbjjposted 3 months ago in reply to this

          Google Plus does exist, although I guess she probably would have just said that.  What are your five?

          1. lobobrandon profile image80
            lobobrandonposted 3 months ago in reply to this

            Yup she would have mentioned it.

            Mine:

            Google
            Direct
            Pinterest
            Hubpages
            Yahoo

              revolutionbjjposted 3 months ago in reply to this

              When you say "direct", do you usually share the link with someone via email?  How do they get to the page?

      2. janshares profile image88

        Yes.

    I get more traffic from google.com.au than Bing.

    As of last 7 days:

    Google (us, uk, ca)
    HubPages
    Flipboard
    Yahoo
    Bing

    1. revolutionbjj profile image91
      revolutionbjjposted 3 months ago in reply to this

      Thanks, Glenn.  I feel like Flipboard will recede over the coming weeks, but as long as it continues to be a slow and steady trickle, I'll be happy to have one more source!

  7. earner profile image86
    earnerposted 3 months ago

    Google (uk, .com, au, .ca, .in, ie, .nz)
    Hubpages
    Pinterest
    Bing
    Yahoo

    I haven't ever had a thing from FB, but currently trying to change that. Ditto for G+.  Need to spend 1-2 months working on those two between now and the end of the year.

    It's tricky writing on a US-based site as my spelling and topics are UK-centric.

  8. SheilaMilne profile image90

    1. Google
    2. Hubpages
    3. Pinterest
    4. Flipboard
    5. Yandex.ru

    I'm expecting the Flipboard source to drop off the list as the initial rush has died down to nothing.

      What's this?
      5. Yandex.ru

      1. SheilaMilne profile image90

        It's a Russian search engine.

        1. revolutionbjj profile image91
          revolutionbjjposted 3 months ago in reply to this

          Any idea why you're in there?

          1. SheilaMilne profile image90
            SheilaMilneposted 3 months ago in reply to this

            Mostly they are wanting to know how to store postcards, but also they seem interested in visiting Monaco and, oddly, an English village.

              Fascinating.  I always scratch my head at random traffic.

  9. NateB11 profile image91
    NateB11posted 3 months ago

    Mainly the Google search engine, meaning organic traffic; a bit from some social media like Facebook and Pinterest; some from other search engines like Bing. Google is the best and easiest way to get traffic as far as I'm concerned. More reliable into the future.

    Mostly Google with a lot of contributions from one of the niche sites, then Flipboard, Hubpages, and Yahoo.

    From google to search.ask.com... about 30 sources, but google tops with 35%.

    Would love to know the percentage of your google traffic.

    1. revolutionbjj profile image91
      revolutionbjjposted 3 months ago in reply to this

      Definitely less than 5% for me.

      1. Jan Saints profile image77
        Jan Saintsposted 3 months ago in reply to this

        Hey Revolutionbjj, you must be kidding! A good number of your hubs are on the niche sites which are getting a lot of traffic from google.

        1. revolutionbjj profile image91
          revolutionbjjposted 3 months ago in reply to this

          Not kidding at all. 

          If I look only at this week, I come up with around 8% for Google.  That's much higher than all time, but still paltry compared to the social media stuff.

    2. SheilaMilne profile image90
      SheilaMilneposted 3 months ago in reply to this

      Well over 50% for me.

      My Google.com traffic is around 35% with another 5% or so from other country Googles.

      I am around 30% Pinterest traffic too.

  13. Chriswillman90 profile image91
    Chriswillman90posted 3 months ago

    Should we be aiming for equal percentage traffic across the board or for one like Google to score a higher percentage over other sources. 

    Or does it not matter?

    1. revolutionbjj profile image91
      revolutionbjjposted 3 months ago in reply to this

      I don't see why it matters.

    2. WryLilt profile image87
      WryLiltposted 3 months ago in reply to this

      The more traffic sources the better (don't keep all your eggs in one basket).

      However if you're not getting at least a small amount from search engines, it's time to rethink your SEO.

      1. Chriswillman90 profile image91
        Chriswillman90posted 3 months ago in reply to this

        What if the problem is the opposite? I'm getting the majority of traffic from search engines but not social media. What's the best way to expand traffic towards that sector?

      2. revolutionbjj profile image91
        revolutionbjjposted 3 months ago in reply to this

        Man, my SEO sucks.

    Well that's what I assume. I'm too lazy to check smile

      Wow, Pinterest is doing really great for you!  Is it a handful of specific hubs that perform the best?

  17. Alessio Ganci profile image81

    For me, HubPages at the first place, and various international Google's search engine pages (one is Google Images search result page) in the other places.
