    Does anyone know how i can drive massive traffic to my hubpage? I see people pages ranking high at yahoo, google and msn but mine can get there. Any help from fellow hub fellows?
    Thanks.

      I just wrote a hub on this: How I achieved success on hubpages

      And I started a thread in forums where others have shared similar hubs: http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/2578

    Take your time and money and learn SEO.

      Okay...I'm an idjit (well, after all, it's late and I've been up for the past 19 1/2 hours so I'm half-asleep here), but....

      what's SEO?

    Time.

    As long as you have a modicum of sense, I.E your titles and links are search engine optimized, you'll be up there eventually.

    Google views have surpassed Hubpages view for me now, but only recently. The amount of external hits I get seems to be rising steadily as well.

    As far as general SEO, there isn't all that much you can do outside of structuring your hub properly.

    Use Flagship hubs (http://hubpages.com/help/flagship_hubs_more) as a model.

    EDIT: and backlink building as well.

    Thoog,

    I love you, but I disagree to almost all in your post, except for getting relevant title and text big_smile

    Just write!

    Write good articles.
    I see too many questions, as I bounce around these 'help' threads - about $$. You knew it was a 'content' site when you signed up...deliver content. Quality content. People will appreciate this and start visiting your hubs - then start telling their friends. Then - lo' and behold, their friends will tell two friends, who will tell two friends, culminating in a dramatic whirlwind of unbelievable traffic for you (just like that shampoo commercial from the 70's - tell two friends and they'll tell two friends and so on and so on...) and pretty soon you will be rich and famous and will wonder how to deal with your new-found fame and fortune...

    Or - if you just write good content, people will visit, rate you well and you'll earn money honestly, fair and square.

    And so on and so on...

    Umm, yeah, it's all just and right, and it is how things are supposed to be in ideal world.

    Unfortunately, my world is not ideal, and "pretty soon" usually mean many years or never... sad

    Thus sinful publishers in my world have to take care of promoting their work - unless they don't want their work to be seen, of course wink

    And so, Misha - you're saying that:

    Once the 'fair and square' wears out - HIT THE SEO Tactics and fly with 'em?
    From that site you posted in another thread?

    seofaststart.com or something I think it was.

    I'm still on that site....it's gettin' a little blurry now though.

      Yep. And it is not the thing that you can master overnight. I'm doing this for about two years already, and I still learn something new every day smile

    Search Engine Optimisation

    Most of the Fast Start stuff doesn't apply on a platform like HubPages, though, because you can't do things like applying "nofollow" to your internal links, etc unless you own the code.

    When it comes to getting up the organic search listings, it's just keywords, quality content, and links from elsewhere.

    No magic bullet, no secret weapon.

      Thanks.  I can usually put together a coherent sentence but when it comes to search engines and internet traffic and codes and widgets and capsules and this and that...I'm hopeless.  Give me a sheet of clean paper and a good pen and I'll go to town, but my forte tends to be fiction.  Sadly, fiction seems to be on the wane these days, so I'm trying my hand at something new.

      Lots and lots and lots to learn.

    Jenny, I see you are an expert in hubpages already. How is your hubscore doing? wink

    And I think you will benefit from re-reading Dan's work one more time. It is by far not only about internal linking.

    1. Inspirepub profile image86
      Inspirepubposted 8 years ago in reply to this

      I didn't say Dan's work was all about internal linking, I said that the part of his work which could easily be applied to Hub pages did not include internal linking, since we don't have control over our "no follow" tags, metatags, etc on Hubs.

      I believe I mentioned keywords (and I am including keywords in the page summary, as we have control over that), quality content, and inbound links as things he discusses and we can control.

      And for the moment I am back over 80, thanks for asking wink

        Mishaposted 8 years ago in reply to this

        I should have misread you then. I was under impression that you think Dan's work in most part does not apply here, and therefore useless for HP members to study...

        Actually there are several other things that we can control to some degree here. For example you have full control over description meta tag.

          Isn't that the thing called "page summary"?

          Or have I missed something ...

            Here is how your post looks when you open it for editing. I replaced all brackets with parenthesis so they get shown here:

            You need to remove the last (/quote), it messes up the font. And it is not HTML, it is BBCode...

    Just search hubpages for keywords like traffic tips to see what other hubbers are doing. You do need to learn some SEO tips (educate yourself)....and it usually does take some time, however not always if you do things right. A lot of my hubs are on the first pages of google for certain keywords, averaging placement in the #7 slot. Some are even higher.

    I've been using a few different tactics: maximizing my capsule usage, using relevant keywords, social bookmarking sites, article marketing and more. In about 3 weeks I've got just over 1300 views. Not too bad, I don't think.

    But, most importantly, I also deliver good content. I take time to research my info and provide multiple links to other sites with similar content.

  11. Inspirepub profile image86
    Inspirepubposted 8 years ago

    Interesting - how does "maximising capsule usage" work to improve search engine position?

    I've averaged about 100 views a day so far, less in the beginning when I only had a few hubs, increasing steadily, and somewhat skewed by a single StumbleUpon rush of about 100 people a couple of days back.

    Are you posting articles which contain links to your Hubs?

    Jenny

  12. Misha profile image76
    Mishaposted 8 years ago

    LOL no, I think in this case I just completely missed the content of your parenthesis, so this was a bad example.

    PS Please remove last "/quote" thing from your post - this will fix the font size

  13. Inspirepub profile image86
    Inspirepubposted 8 years ago

    Thanks for the tip - I am slowly coming to grips with hacking the HTML tags to make my Forum posts look right. Detail is not my forte, LOL!

    I have studiously avoided editing HTML in the past by using WYSIWYG tools (or at most copying and pasting entire code segments), and suddenly three different situations happened that required me to pay attention to the structure of the stuff, all within a couple of days.

    I guess the Universe is telling me something ...

    Jenny

    P.S. When I posted this it looked like the small font, and there's not a /quote anywhere in my post. Sigh.

    It takes mostly time, and good content, and what Misha said.  I've gotten more than half my traffic in the past 30 days, since I started optimizing them and advertising.

    Inspirepubposted 8 years ago

    Oh, my Lord, does that mean all the rules are different?

    Or does BBcode use the same conventions as HTML for tags?
