    Writing good content is the main thing!

    The rest is marketing!

    I think it's important to become a part of the hubpages community. Look at other hubpages, learn from them and comment. You can always use social bookmarking pages like stumbleupon or digg to market your sites too. Good luck!

    yeah social bookmarking is good but
    the thing is if you stop bookmarking the traffic will die

    to me concentrate on building you email subscribers, seo and
    write good content will help your readers coming back!

    I would say HubPages first, cut and paste your article to your email and let your family and friends know about it. In turn they will ready it and before you know it there is more traffic.

    there are lots of ways to drive traffic to your pages. write articles related to your different hubs and submit them to sites like ezine articles and associated content.

    make sure you have a really good resource box with a link to your page in it and this will enbcourage your article readers to visit your page.

    even if they don't visit your page through your resource box, each article you write will create a backlink to your hub and make it appear more valuable in the eyes of the search engines.

    create a free blog at blogger, wordpress, rticlz and squidoo. write an introduction to your subject and then cut and paste the first paragraph from your hub into the blog with a link which reads 'read more' and directs people to your hub

    again, even if people don't see your blogs they will provide a good backlink each time you post and slowly increase your page rank.

    pick your titles well by doing keyword research.  by putting your possible title in quotes in google like this "your title or keyword" this will tell you how many other sites have your title as a keyword and will let you know how much competition there is.

    for example: if you were doing a hub about Doctor Who and checked out your opposition you would see there are over 18 million other sites out there with "Doctor Who" in their keywords and you'd have pretty much no chance of competing with them.

    on the other hand, if you put a phrase like "doctor who season 2 boxset" into google in quotes you will see that there are less than twenty. instead of a hub about the whole show you could split your subject into several hubs and cover smaller specific parts of it.

    now look at the right hand side of the search result page, the sites listed in the right hand side of the margin are all paid adverts, as long as there are adverts there you know that people are paying to bid on this phrase and therefore there is targetted traffic which is using your title as a search term.

    if there are no advertisers try find a different title as there is little or no searching being done for it.

    another way of getting backlinks is to join forums on the topic of your hub and have a link to your hubpage in your forum signature, each time you post on the forum, you create another backlink.

    hope this helps, it's just a few of the easiest things you can do to help drive traffic to you page smile

    Wow SEO in a forum page - that is impressive Pete ! You should write a hub or 3!

      this did actually occur to me as I was writing it all down, and yes, I think there are at least 3 hubs possible from this one posting.

      another example of keyword research and how picking your title well is paramount.

      if you look up the phrase credit crunch in quote marks google returns 6.7million results

      "survive the credit crunch" returns 34,700

      "how to survive the credit crunch" only returns 5,400 but there are paid adverts for this phrase so there's definitely enough people searching this term to make a hub worthwhile.

      it's much easier to compete against less than 6000 other sites than nearly 7 million big_smile

      ETA: I actually shocked my self while writing the original reply, didn't realise I knew enough for it to be worthwhile to share.

      this is quite instructive actually, it shows we may know far more on a topic than we realise and sometimes just starting writing it down can turn on the tap.

    LOL - you have just discovered the secret of hubpages - don't tell anyone - its a great place to improve your writing because its so interactive - my hubpage marketing hub has over 200 comments - and that excludes all the spam I deleted!
