How Do You Get People To Come To Your Hubpage
asked by andre2584
Hi andre2584, I don't know you yet, but maybe sometime I will. I saw your question and I received an official invitation to make a hub about it, and I am doing it now. I am sure that you are not the only one which has this question.
To start with the beginning, once you have made a hub, you must spread the word about it. And I mean to do it all over the place, wherever you have the possibility to tell someone "Hey, Andre has a new hub in HubPages". Here are few methods to do it, all of them at no cost for you.
Start with Google. Hubpages gives you the possibility to link your hub to Google Analytics. Do it. In other hub of mine I am explaining how to set up your Google profile, and there you have the possibility to add your hub to your profile. Open an account and at Google Bookmark and there you are allowed to add and the tags of your hub. In this way you make sure that Google knows about you and when someone will search your keywords will be pointed to your hub.
Then you must ping your hub. There is a free online service, Pingoat, at http://www.pingoat.com/ which doesn't even ask you to have an account with them. Just go to their page, type in the name and the URL of your hub, check all the services they have available, and they will take care of the rest. In few minutes your hub will be pinged to more than 40 RSS sites.
You should be aware of the importance of the social bookmarking. Every time when you make a hub make sure you are bookmarking it. There are many bokmarking services, but Mozilla Firefox browser has a plugin which comes for free with Firefox called "Shareaholic". I love Firefox as browser and I love Shareaholic. It's just a small button in your toolbar, but allows you to bookmark any web page you want to more than 40 bookmarking sites. I love it because all the other services I know are sticked on blogs or websites, but Shareaholic is independent. Almost all this bookmarking sites gives you a widget to put it on your browser, but this would mean tu fill your screen with badges. Shareaholic is the best and is free, so is and Firefox.
Open up an account with Facebook, with Myspace, with Twitter, and make yourself friends there. Every time when you make a hub or update one, post a note in these interaction sites, so your friends will be able to see them. Shareaholic will do that for you.
All the methods I explained you here it take me less than half hour after I am publishing something on a blog, a hub or a lens. Only the first time will take more time, because you will have to open an account with the most of these sites, but after that is a piece of cake.
But now we are coming at the hardest part of making people coming to your hub page, the content. Your message, the idea which you want to transmit to other people is the main reason for which people will come to your hub page, and if they will not find something interesting, they will not come back and they will not recommend you to their friends. This is your biggest challenge in making a hub visited by people.
I suggest you to try all these methods and you will see that you will get visitors to your hubpage. For more information, visit my blog, "I Am An Affiliate!". Until the next time, may the Google be with you.
Serious About Wanting To Use Article Marketing?
The key of a successful online business is the traffic you can drive to that business. No matter how good is your product or service and how many benefits can bring to someone, if nobody see your sales page, you are wasting your time. The way you can show to the whole world your business is the website promotion.
Website promotion makes you get noticed on the Internet. Your survival as e-business owner depends all upon the visitors your website is getting. Setting up a website and launching it online does not mean that every web surfer will come and see what's all about. There are few tasks that you must accomplish in order to have visitors to your website. The main task is the search engine optimization. The keywords and the description of your website will determine the search engines to send you those visitors interested in your product that are using as search term your keyword.
On the second place comes the advertising. To attract visitors to your website you may use paid advertising, such as Adwords campaigns, or free advertising. As free advertising opportunities you have, among others, blogging, free classifieds ads and article marketing. The article marketing is considered by the search engine optimization experts as the most powerful tool of the marketing tactics.
Before the aparition of the Internet Marketing, the article marketing was used by business owners as an advertising method in newspapers, commonly in the local ones. Due to the wide availability of the Internet, today the article marketing allows you to reach almost everywhere in the world, giving you a huge opportunity to promote your business.
There are several benefits of the article marketing. When you are building a website you are limited to a number of keywords related to your business. You can not stuff your website with keywords, otherwise you will be penalized by the search engines. But you have not the same problem with the article marketing. You can write an article for each keyword you want to use and publish it with a link back to your website in the resource box, and you are ensured that your business is advertised for that keyword.
The most profitable source of traffic for an online business is the free targeted traffic. A high page rank is a guarantee that you will receive free traffic from the search engines. In order to rank high in the search engines you must have proper meta tags, a good keyword placement in the content of the page and many back links to your website, preferably one way links. A common method is the submission to website directories, prefferably to the ones with high page rank themselves. But most of these directories require a payment for submission.
Again, the article marketing is the best solution for your back links. By submitting your articles to popular article directories, such as EzineArticles.com, you ensure quality back links for your website. More than this, many webmasters looking for content for their websites are publishing articles from these articles directories on their websites. Your benefit is double in this case, because you gain a back link to your website and you increase the exposure of your business. The traffic generated by the article marketing will be free traffic, and in the mean time will be targeted traffic, because your articles will be read by people interested in the theme of your articles, which is the theme of your business.
But, remeber, an article must have a strong headline and good content in order to bring you all the above benefits. Visit my site, "Affiliate Marketing Step By Step", and you will find out more about article marketing.
