I just tried my hand at writing a hub on cooking squash. I have, like NO idea how to promote such a hub. Do you do anything to promote your recipe hubs? If so where and how? Or do they do good on thier own?
There are quite a few cooking sites that you can post messages on, and then leave a link to your hub.
However, I've found that my recipe hubs have listed pretty well on google quite quickly and bring in their own traffic...
i think i am having the same problem with you,but just ask and answer questions is a way to promote.
I think it is Ok to promote anything having to do with food here...new rule! Ok...better check with the Hubpages about that...what do I know?
My hubs are primarily recipe hubs and I find that my tags are very important. If you use the google wonder wheel, it will give you ideas to use for tags.
Go to google.com and put in words like Squash recipe. Hit enter. Right below the Google name, click on "show options." Under "Standard view" you will see "Wonder wheel." Click on that. You'll see ideas for tags that you can put on your hub to get it into google search. This has worked for me. 76% of my activity comes from google search, according to my adsense stats. I hope this helps.
I went to about.com and made an account, posted in the food forums. That's a huge site with a lot of traffic, it's worked pretty well so far.
I wrote a couple hubs on cooking and Google just throws traffic at me. One of them gave me a click the first night I added it.
Send it to all your friends on the social sites your use, that should give it an instant boost in traffic and search engines should follow suite.
Are you indexed in Google yet?
I have 30 plus Hubs now and as my user name indicates I write mostly on Indian Recipes. Do click on my Profile picture to see those recipes.

Did you wait until you had plenty of hubs and the ad accounts activated before you started promoting your hubs or did you start promoting right away?

I suppose with just a few keywords and a search friendly title. The image that pops in my head is of a store in an obscure spot that no one ever hears about. Word has to get out somehow. But can you do that without ever...
