Traffic Traffic Traffic Where Do I Get The Traffic
If your building Hubs and not doing anything to get traffic
to them then your never going to succeed the way you would
if you pursued traffic. You may ask well how can I pursue traffic.
Well I'm going to try to give you some basic ideals on how you
can create your own traffic.
1. Yahoo Groups and Google Groups
Don't miss out on the great traffic you can get from Yahoo and Google
Groups. But here you want to approach it in such a way that you don't
get called a spammer. If you create hubs like for instance say my hubs
about Ghosts and Paranormal you will find that their are a ton of Yahoo
and Google Groups that would love to see a post with a url to your latest
hub on the subject. And believe me they will come to see what you have to
offer them and if you provide them with good content they will be back again
when you post about your newest hubs. You can find Yahoo and Google Groups
on almost any subject and if your posts to these Groups are on topic you
will get good traffic back.
At some point you should even consider starting your own Yahoo or Google
Group or Groups. You will be creating your own traffic pump and with your
own group or groups you can edit the html and add links to your hub pages
Here again you want to be on topic but you can find tons of forums on almost any
subject. Now what you want to do is put the link to your latest hub in your
signature. So of course you want to find forums that allow signatures. Some will
allow you to have 2-3 links in your signature. And as you build new hubs on
a same or simular subject you can go back and change out your links to those
of your newer hubs. Remember your titles are very important. You want to make
the person want to click on your links so they will show up on your hubs.
If you don't have one consider starting one or more and use your blog to feed
traffic onto your Hubs. If you do a Blog or Blogs on a popular subject you might
be really surprised at how much traffic you can create. The new Blogger offers
a much better product than the old Blogger with the new drag and drop capsules
and you can add adsense to your Blogger Blog or Blogs also. You can also now
use your own domains at Blogger. You can also comment on other peoples blogs
and leave your links but again for best results keep it on topic. On topic posts
are usually welcome.
4. Mainstream Link Dumps ( Used to be called FFA Pages )
Yes there are some and more and more are added everyday. Here titles are
again very important. You have to use a bit of marketing skill and create a eye
catching title that will make people want to click on it. Here timing is also
everything. If you can create a Hub page about something new and in the news
and then post a link to it quickly you will find you will be the one getting the traffic.
5. Free Classified Ad Sites
Yes if you have something interesting and use a bit of imagination you can
harvest quite a bit of traffic from the Free Classified Ad Sites. I know I have
said it before but again its important to keep it on topic. Check out the classified
sites you place your ads on and if its themed along the same line as the hubs your
doing then your ad or ads will do the best. By this if its a classified ad site with
mostly ads about cats then you would want to post a ad with a link to say your
hub page about kittens. I'm sure you can see where I am going with this.
There you have some great traffic ideals and some may work better for some people
than others. I use all of them and some more and I know I get good to great traffic
from all of them. Also always be looking for new ideals and new ways to create traffic.
You never know what you may be able to come up with.
And below is a screen shot of the traffic I obtained on one hub using the above methods and you can see it does work. Some traffic sources I blacked but you can see the traffic produced. And anyone else can do the same thing.
The thing I think a lot of people are missing is exactly how important traffic is. You can build all the pretty hubs you want to but if you have no traffic you aren't going to do very well with adsense or adsense click thrus either here at Hub Pages or any where else for that matter. Content may be king but with out traffic its pretty pointless.
Good content combined with lots of backlinks, especially backlinks from relevant sites is the key.
Crazyhorse, I'm sure you could make a great hub about all the info you've been posting.
I have several of them already and I hope its ok to post the links to them here.
Those have been around a while and they do contain some good information.
I really do enjoy helping people. I started back in 1992 and thats what I have been doing since then. I won't post the link to it but if you check the blogging forum at netpond you will find a lot of threads I did there on blogging. Just add .com to netpond and it will take you there. I still have some sticky threads there in the blogging forum.
