I was rather slow in sharing my Hubs with Facebook, mainly out of a sense of shyness or awkwardness at tooting my own horn. But every time I have shared one, I have seen an immediate upsurge in traffic, not only to the shared Hub but to others as well.
Also, I have gotten so excited about the new Suggest Links tool! I am systematically going through my Hubs to add links, and ever since I have started this, my traffic has picked up dramatically. A lot of the increase has come from within HP, I confess, but since the overall balance has always leaned slightly towards outside traffic, I'm happy with every increase in traffic.
So my Tip for Newbies would be: Don't wait as long as I did to start sharing your Hubs wherever you can, and by all means use the Suggest Links tool (absolutely outstanding for people like me who haven't learned about SEO stuff just yet).
In addition to the rather obvious "Read the FAQ's" and "Study the Learning Center" tips, what brief nuggets of advice would you experienced Hubbers give to the Newbies among us?
Im a newbie and dont know what you are talking about! Still, I will learn soon.
GI, I think that when you start publishing Hubs it will become clearer. At the bottom of a published Hub is a button that says "Share" (along with several other ones). When you click on it, you can share information about your Hub with Twitter, Digg, Facebook, and other sites. (You have to be logged in to them at the same time, or at least you do to Facebook.)
Does that help you understand the Share business better?
Go straight to work. Have a specific time every day when you write a hub. Not check your hubs, or your earnings, or browse through the news, or researching about writing, and for goodness sake stay away from the forums, until after you have written your hub for the day.
Straight to work, you can play around afterwards.
You can learn all you can learn, but if you don't start writing hubs it won't matter one bit.
Thanks Aficionada, I am also new with Hub's but enjoying it to the fullest. SEO seems to have been made easy here comparing with what I have previously learned on the net. The latest tool I use is emailing my hub to my contacts, to yahoo, gmail or hotmail.
Don't forget - without a proper keyword research it is a hope and pray exercise
my advice to new hubbers
DON'T GIVE UP, keep on making quality hubs because you never know which one will be popular. you can link all your hubs especially those that are related. once you have a hub which gains much page views, this is where you place the links of your other hubs which have less page views.
Participate also on the hubpages forum, votes, ratings, comments, this way you get noticed and you will have followers which read your hubs then you have views which keep on increasing....
put some quality pictures in your hubs, some people would like to link to this pictures and you will get a nice traffic on your hubs.
