I have been on Hubpages two months now and to be honest I don't think I'm doing to bad considering i did not have a clue about writing before I came here.
I have recently published my 37th Hub and was wondering how do people bring in such big traffic to their hubs in a short space of time?
I use backlinks with Stumbleupon, Reddit, Redgage, Shetoldme, Digg, Twitter and Facebook, my hubs in total have been viewed nearly 2,000 times with a copule of them getting over the 100 mark.
Can anyone give me some tips on getting bigger traffic?
I've been contemplating exactly that question this past week, so I did high traffic keyword research and have decided to put together a hub on tight abs, big boobs, (Oops. Can I say that?) dating and BMWs.
So far it's not reading well because the big (censored) clash with the tight abs on a BMW date. (Don't ask.) Adding in a pancake recipe served on an iPad might pull it over the top. I don't know. But there's no app. Celebrity stuff is in demand, says Google. Maybe a video of Lady Gaga vs Bill Clinton in a death cage match in the backseat could add interest, but I haven't figured out how to tie that in yet.
If I patch it all together into something remotely logical, I'll run it through extreme hub makeover, which it will desperately need.
You can use any of the ideas above except the Lady Gaga death match and pancake recipe.
It is 7am I am at work just about to leave for Lancashire, laughing my head off. That has got to be the funniest forum reply ever, thank you.
Funny stuff! You might have something there...just the forum post was worth reading I can only imagine what a hub might be like!
Can you explain specifically how to establish a backlink?
this hub has wonderful information on promoting hubs on hub pages and other sources

Welcome to Hubpages!
I would suggest you read through the Learning Center for other helpful information.
I would also suggest you utilize the Extreme Hub Makeover Forum thread, by posting a couple of links to your hubs, so that other more experienced Hubbers can check out your format/layout and keywords usage.
The critiques offered by the more experienced hubbers is a valuable tool.
Just my thoughts that could help.
Thanks for the reply and advice Cagsil, will get myself over to the learning center I think, maybe tomorrow though its pretty late her in England.
I have used the Extreme Hub Makeover that was a great hep WebsiteExaminer gave me some great advice, and the thread pushed me to take up the 30 hubs in 30 days challenge, I'm right in the middle of that now.
Stay positive and active, you will not regret it. This is the same attitude I came with, and its great to see several others with the same mentality.
I was just at 2 months 3 months ago, I thought I had a good idea what I was doing.. WRONG! its 5 months now, and I am really starting to get a grip on things. Like I said in the other post, Hubpages has made such a believer out of me, that I feel I will be doing this for the rest of life, rather than a stinky job!
Congrats on the 1000 followers. Not to mention in your return to HP, you already have more posts than me! Good to see you again.
You have to find popular topics and you have to make some great hubs to go along with it.
The best way to get a lot of views is to find anything relatively new(tv show, item, anything), and have every bit of info on your hub that the reader would need. This will do you no good though, not if you don't find great keywords. One great keyword can produce more views than your 2000 in a day. And you yourself could do that tomorrow. Anyone can.
Also, backlinking, if done right is fantastic. Sadly, I have yet to come close to perfect it. If you have 2000 views in 2 months and want to expand.
Backlinking has not helped my hubs much at all, but I can't say I have backlinked much.
I have big plans in the future for Hubpages.
Hey thanks for the reply and advice I have just started to get an understanding of key words and have worked on that with my last few Hubs, so hopefully I might see some better results.
I think we could all do with more time on our hands to get all the backlinking done.
I would not worry at all about backlinking if you don't have proper keywords.
If your keywords aren't as good as they could be, it puts you way behind.
Can I suggest that you solely work on a wide variety of hubs, and not worry about backlinking, at least for now. You do not need backlinks to get to the top of every search engine.
I made a huge variety and found what worked and what didn't. If your keywords are sub-par in your other hubs, I would spend a day revising them, and adding keywords into your pages.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions, I'd recommend it.
Always compose a title to match a search term, while including that search term a couple of times in your hub. If you look up the search term and discover the top 10 sites are less then pr 6, there is a good chance your hub will rank on either page 1 or page 2 on google. Without building back links at all. ;-)
well i have had a couple of posts up and have only gotten like 30 views in total help me

My Hubs get very little traffic and earn very little. Even adding my Hubs to Network Sites, did nothing. I am not that knowledgeable about how to increase traffic. I have posted them on Pinterest and Flipboard,...
