Hub Promotion - Best Techniques?

  1. Mike Rogers profile image59
    Mike Rogersposted 7 years ago

    One of the reasons I'm working with hubs now rather than blogs is the time factor... I haven't got as much of it as I used to.

    In that spirit, if anyone would like to share their hub promotion techniques (backlinks? social bookmarks? pinging? etc.) I'm an eager and appreciative listener.

    Is traditional promotion even necessary for individual hubs? Has anyone has success w/o any self promotion at all?

    Any input much appreciated... I'm just looking for the most efficient use of my limited time to get my pages ranked high in the Google SERPs outside of on-page and strength of venue factors.

    Thanks,
    Mike

    Hi Mike,

    Check out Sunforged's hubs. He has quality info on all these topics. Mark Knowles and Relache are also great sources of info.

    also there are quite a few great threads in the Need Help forum.
    you can do a search on any of those words also at the top of the screen and will find lots of info. smile

    I publish related, but individual articles, and post them at different sites.

    More chances of getting attention from Search Engines, and also tapping into fresh traffic.

    Most of my traffic comes from posting my links on forums.

    Thanks for the input everyone.

    It seems that hubs benefit from "good old fashioned" backlinking. Always a time consuming process, but similarly always well worth the effort in the end.

    I've never tried social bookmarking campaigns, though the idea intrigues me. Anyone use social bookmarking exclusively for either traffic or rank?

    Since nearly all Social Bookmarking tools are no-follow they do little for SEO.

    I always write more text, rather than spend time on social bookmarking tools.

      That is an opinion we share, thisisoli. I played with social bookmarking a couple of years ago when it was the "latest thing" without much success. Lots of traffic, few conversions. Just wondered if anything had changed since.

      I'm mostly focusing on improving the quality (and length) of my writing (I'm still somewhat stuck in 'affiliate marketer' sound bytes blog mode) and composing a workable backlink strategy for the long term.

    I'm currently trying to work on finding do follow forums and blogs to post a relevant link to my hubs or at least have an appropriate hub attached to my profile for that forum/blog.. it's definitely a challenge.
