I am not sure about the function of this web directory website?? How it works??
Don't worry about it. It's a place to share websites and blogs that you like. Some people use it to promote their own Hubs or blogs, but other Reddit members will shoot you down in flames if they catch you doing that. You need to put in a fair bit of effort sharing other stuff, then you can slip in one or two of your own sites. Personally, I don't think that's worth the trouble.
Thanks for the information. What is then the best way of getting traffic or promoting my own stuff?
Don't waste time promoting it till you know it's worth promoting.
If you write on a topic that's either not searched for (like purple turtle eyes) or one that is saturated (like acai berries), the chances are that you'll never get more than a handful of views no matter how much promotion you do.
So write more content, see what starts getting views naturally then promote what works.
I'm also trying to find out how reddit would help to increase hub views, would like to learn more from experienced people.
Personally do not prefer Reddit's web-layout.
Apart from this, for a SBS [social bookmark service] it is difficult to find anything of value of their site.
By far, StumbleUpon is a better choice.
Granted they have a limit of 100 links to a domain, but they certainly increase traffic measures AND following. My experience saw 2500-5000 UV per link. When I maxed out, it dropped for a month, then slowly came back.
These same links on Reddit did squat.
IMHO, use Stumbles Paid Discovery and buy traffic if you can. It is not expensive at all, about $0.05 p/v, plus removes the cap of 100 links and gives you targeted visitors.
I posted links on reddit, and it totally screwed up my google traffic, plus the majority of people on there are just plain nasty. If I was with you, I would just concentrate on creating more content and maybe sharing your work with your friends on Facebook or Twitter (assuming you have an account with either).

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?

This site has been suggested as a way to get traffic. I spent a few hours, which turned into 3 days, to figure out how to navigate it. It appears to be a site about links, not really content, but they get angry if you...

I receive practically no traffic from these bookmarking sites, and Pinterest isn't much better. Learnist however generates loads of traffic.
