Hub Traffic Two Tips That Work

Updated on June 21, 2012

Two Tips that Work!

I have been writing for hub pages for four weeks now. I signed up before that and my profile just turned to six week. But, the information after signing up actually went into my spam and I did post an article until a couple weeks later.

What I know after such a short time doesn’t hold a candle to the information some of you very successful veterans have provided. But I did want to share the couple things that I have learned.

I have found two particular things that have been very helpful that I read in articles from other hubbers. First I learned from ChristyWrites and J.S. Matthew that sharing helps bring traffic to your articles and can increase your income.

I had figured out how to link to other hubbers pages and share the articles on Twitter, Reddit, Stumble upon, Google+, facebook, and with other followers. However, since the page templates on our articles has changed some of this I may need to relearn. Any information that you have in regard to this would be helpful.


Results from sharring with others last week

Other hubbers and I organized sharing last week and the graph below peeking on Saturday, June 9th, proves that this works. Also the income picture proves this as well. It is important to note: that we shared not only with hub following but with Reddit, Stumble upon, Google+, facebook, twitter! The participants in this experiment were:

Daughter of Maat, J.S. Matthew Michelle Taylo, rajan jolly, Minnetonka Twin, editorsupremo, MelChi, rahul0320, Barbara Kay,chrisinhawaii, DrMark1961, Cathleen Beams, mommiegee, joanveronica, Li Galo, Teresa Schultz, Sandra bursby, tjdavis ,Flashmakeit, FitnessProDee, Lendzy, hawaiianodysseus, Kangayankeedoo, TToombs08, Curiad, Hawaiin scribe

I know they would be happy to pay it forward if you shared their great articles.

My suggestion to everyone is that if someone shares for you do the same for them! Of course that wouldn’t mean to share anything you wouldn’t feel comfortable with or to not share an article that is good just in hopes that they would share one of yours.

Stats drastically increase on June 9th when we all shared.

Look what sharing can do for you!

Sharing earned me $6.00 or more in one day

Earning went from dimes in one day to $7.25

Getting Internet Traffic

The second article that I read that proved to be true was by Lauyallan she said that writing about popular topics such as television shows can spike internet traffic so Wednesday night of this week I watched the new Dallas launch and wrote an article. Yesterday mid morning I posted the article. Below you will find again a picture from my stats suggesting the sources in which the traffic came. Non of the hubber’s loved this article apparently. Laughing out Load.

Traffic from the internet in just a little over 24 hours

Note all the internet traffic, not hub traffic, when you writeabout popular topics

My hub earnings increase again after publishing a popular theme.

What next?

In conclusion the popular articles brought a lot of traffic but the sharing brought more traffic and income! Now for our new experiment lets combine the two and everyone can share my popular topic article "Dallas" and see what happens. Just kidding although if you would like to this would be great.

We all love writing and would like to be able to claim that we make at least $1,000 a month on hub pages. So I have provided a couple avenues for immediate increase in income and reader ship that I learned from other hubbers. So please share with others and to internet sources to make all our goals come true!

    • DNemesis profile image

      DNemesis 4 years ago

      Good article. However, this is a question ive always wondered: how long did that traffic spike last? Have you found yourself having to share the same title multiple times to keep this momentum going?

      The reason i ask is because whenever i write an article, i get a little over a dozen views on day 1, but then 1 or 2 views onwards.

      mbyL: Yes sharing others doesn’t necessary increase my traffic. However, can increase my creditability with Google and If I like to their page can earn money off of others hubs! That is by sharing on addition sites like pin it, Google+, etc.

      Jeff Gamble: Yes Jeff I did hope to show just that!

      Ann810: True when we find a great new writer I am so excited to share their work as well as if they just have a really good article!

    • mbyL profile image

      Slaven Cvijetic 4 years ago from Switzerland, Zurich

      Angela I have a question to you. Despite that this hub is a wonderful help to everyone, did you mean that by sharring the work of others helped you somehow passively get more traffic or did you imply that the others shared your work too and simply sharring theirs won't make us get more traffic?

      Would be glad about an answer ;).

      What a fantastic hub Angela! Very useful for people like me who discontinue writing for some time and then come back to become active once again on HP. Would like to know more about forming a group and sharing each others hubs. As it is, I do share good hubs from fellow hubbers.

      Thanks for sharing!

      Brett.Tesol: So nice when our mentors support us! Makes my day to have your support!

      CyberShelley: Thank you so much for your kindness! You are a top notch article author. I shared Cut your Food Bills with my great followers. I might suggest from what I have read that you do just cut the title to that to make it more search engine friendly. Simple titles are best and you can save the creative writting for the article its self. Just so you get more views.

      mjboomer :You have so much important information on aging. And with the baby boomers now this is an important topic. I shared

      Choosing a Retirement Community. This is a beautifully written article as are all your articles.

      Arren123: Thank you for your blessings!

      gmaoli: I can certainly see why you earned a hub nuggets for worthy of mention! Amazing article and I have shared start the run and you will find the finish line!

      Brett Caulton 5 years ago from Thailand

      Reading articles like these make me feel wonderful about suggesting the "Thanks for SHARING" idea originally :-).

      It took a while to take off, but with the help of hubbers like ChristyWrites and J.S. Matthew, the idea seems to be spreading fast. I'm really pleased that it is working out for you. Sharing really does help everyone involved.

      As for writing about the latest trends, if you can get in quick, it certainly can have some amazing results on search engine traffic.

      You are off to an amazing start, keep it going.

      Sharing, up, useful and awesome.

      Hi, Angela, I have often shared others' hubs, posts and articles on Facebook just because I found them interesting, useful or insightful or important to social issues.

      I never let them know though. Should I have? It would have helped if they'd done the same for me!

      mblly: Thank you I have also shared a hub for you! I am also following you!

      JThomp42: Thank you.

      vocalcoach: I am blushing. Thank you for sharing and I have shared for you also.

      izettl: Thanks for your great advice and it sounds reasonable to write about long lasting topics.

      Marc Rohde: As you could see by my stats things have been up and down. Although much higher than when I began. I am planning to update this soon as I have a lot to add. Thank you again for your comments.

      Turtlewoman: I am certain you are correct and my thinking was to write a combination. Thank you so much for your comment.

      molometer: Thank you for your comment. I am certain that the Dallas hub will need to be replaced with a more current premier. However, if and I believe it will, Dallas runs for another season, I would hope that the stats that have been created with google would put me at the top of the search. I anticipate it not getting as many views in the down season.

      ChristyWrites & TToombs08; Oh my lol I think that wasn’t a good typo. I will fix and share for you also.

      JMCL162: Thank you! Welcome to hub pages. I am following and stopped over and shared a great poem on perception with the hub followers to introduce you to all of them.

      Tony Wilkerson: Welcome to hub pages. I have shared your article when god seems far off to introduce your writing to the hub gang. Please let us know if you have any questions?

      vims003: Thank you!

      rasta1: This is a cute comment! Thank you!

      clairemy: I am so happy that you found the hub useful!

      p10kabhijita: Thank you!

      harmony155: Yes first you will want to go to the very bottom of the page and click to link to the page, then to the right click hub followers, pin, facebook and twitter, you may also go to your google+, reddit, and stumble upon accounts to share the article if you choose.

      Sherry Hewins: I will share for you also!

      Vinaya Ghimire: I am still confused on many things but, thank you! :)

      carter06: Thanks for the share I will also do the same in return.

      anglnwu: Thank you for your nice comment!

      MarleneB: I was happy to pass on the valuable advice taught by other. Thank you for calling me brave. This is a nice compliment.

      Lisas-thoughts101: Thank you and I also will share!

      excellent hub! I love to see how people tell us their success and tips and show their achievements with pictures. It is just so much more motivating to write on hubpages when we can see other hubbers who are successful at it. it becomes so much more real! Thanks for this hub and of course I shared it!

      Just learning how valuable sharing is will motivate me to do more of it.

      Thanks for your positive attitude and wow - so happy that you are on HP! Votes up and more and oh yes...sharing!

      Laura Irwin 5 years ago from The Great Northwest

      Interesting...I tried the popular theme thing for a while and it's not very sustainable. For me good ol' fashioned topics are best. Things like news, current themes, and politics don't last long- great traffic for maybe a weak, but that's what I would call "trending". Topics that work best for me are things on social issues and relationships- things people will always be dealing with in life.

      I have to say I admire your goals and go-getting attitude so early in the game. Don't give that up and you will defnitely see money worth writing about. Good tips overall...thanks for sharing.

    • Marc Rohde profile image

      Marc Rohde 5 years ago from Racine, WI

      Angela, with the sharing experience a couple weeks old did you see the traffic sustain itself after the initial sharing? Did you see any relevant backlinking occur from the sharing?

      Curious if this was a one time spike or there were results beyond the first couple days. I didn't get into a sharing group but I have noticed that I can sustain a sort term wave over a couple days with social media but it looses power without the longer term backlinking.

      Kim Lam 5 years ago from California

      Hi- you are off to a great start, Angela! It's interesting how you guys organized a sharing group and it shows that the efforts were rewarded with increased traffic. :-)

      As for writing on popular topics...what happens to those hubs after a few weeks, months, and years after all the hype dies down (hype, referencing to popularity of tv show, etc). I can see how writing popular hubs can give you a quick spike in traffic, but wouldn't evergreen topics be of better value in the long run? I'm just wondering...as I haven't written a popular hub yet. I'm interested in seeing your experiment with that. :-)

      Again, great job! Love the enthusiasm and positive energy that you're passing on to other hubbers!

      Crazzykylex: I failed to address the competition issue. You may note that I have mentioned two other people in the article that have articles on the same subject. The two hubbers mention other articles in their articles as well. I have shared their article and they have shared mine. Also I was inspired by another article to write about racism and noted her inspiration in my article the CloudExplorer was inspired to write an article. Same goes for an article on Mother-in-laws and one on pedicures that 2patricias linked my article with. The support really out ways the worries of competition.

      Crazzykylex: Because hubpages are utilized in all timezones I don't think it matters what time you share! The weekdays seem to have more traffic (I believe). As far as your following being annoyed, I myself look forward to what is shared, I am introduced to new hubbers that follow me and I follow. It really is a win win situation. You stand to earn more money you are ranked higher by google and your create partnerships with fellow hubbers.

      Does time matter (like morning or evening) while sharing others hubs? Will they get notified if I took the pain to share their hubs without leaving a notifying comment? How much hubs are enough to share in a day (as I don't want to annoy my precious followers filling up their feeds screen with frequent updates)? How specific should one be while sharing the hubs?

      My questions regarding your second tip is;

      When should you post your hub? What if the hub (on a popular topic) you write is already written by other hubbers? How are you going to make your hubs distinct from the rest?

      A lot of questions are hovering over my mind, but... I don't want to scare you (for now). Hope you'll reply soon

      Right now just a harder time to earn than in years past. I started hubbing in 2006, but only seriously got on board in 2008. In the old days it was much easier to write an article or blog posts and get lots of traffic, but in general Hubpages has been losing traffic over the last few months. I am sure it will rebound, but one piece of advice I give is to never rely one site for writing. Have a few of your own websites in addition to Hubpages, which is a good way to mix things up. I will share this hub on Google+ though because it is good advice!

      I tried to read all the comments, but there were just too many! Congratulations! I participated in the first experiment, and now my traffic has gone back down. Sadly!

      I have a suggestion, maybe we should all form a group and agree that when a hubber appears as having "shared" anothe Hub on our feed, we should at once go to the "sharer's" profile page and choose a hub to share in return, like a prize.

      This way, we would avoid trying to share our own Hubs, so as not to get the dismal grey message that discourages us! (See Chris' comment!)

      What has discouraged me, is that the sharing stopped helping me as soon as you eliminated your original Hub on sharing!

      ''So please share with others and to internet sources to make all our goals come true!''

      I think you have a very good case here as it fits with my philosophy of helping to make enough other people successful before you can truly become successful. Something to do with Karma I reckon. You know ' what goes around comes around'

      Thanks for sharing this with us. In turn I will be Pinning Tweeting Facebooking and G+ in for you and any other ways I can think of getting it out there. Hope to hear from you soon. Posh

      @josh3418 I'm referring to the grayish icon that sort of looks like three people. It says "share with followers". And I only get the scary message when I'm on one of my own Hubs. (I just discovered.)

      Hello Angela, Indeed you learned a lot in a very short time. Your information is so correct. All I can say is "You go girl!" This is very informative, well written and I voted up. CloudExplorer had some great additional information in his comments that are worth taking a lot at, as well. I'll share.

      Good hub, sharing does definitely work! While keywords help with search engines, social sharing shows popularity to search engines, which they LOVE. Hence, if you produce quality keyword articles and SHARE, the hub love gets you Google love ;-).

      Sharing, up and useful.

      Thanks for the insight. I love seeing the traffic spikes to my Hubs. It's especially fun when I don't expect it because someone shares a Hub I wrote somewhere on the Internet. If anyone wants to do another shareathon, count me in! :-)

      Regarding popular topics. I wrote a Hub about the Facebook IPO about 6 months ago that was getting 400 hits per day from Google and other search engines at its peak because so many people were searching about the Facebook IPO. That taught me a lesson about topic choice, even though I don't always write Hubs just because I want to get a lot of views. Sometimes I just want to cover a topic, no matter how obscure it is.

      Angela,

      Your observations about sharing with followers, social media sites, linking with other hubbers, and writing about popular topics are completely correct. To give you example: a few months ago a hubber with a high score and many followers linked my hub about memoirs of my father to her hub about her father. For the past day I have had more than 140 hits on my father's hub and still counting. It doesn't hurt that Father's Day is on the 17th, too. Voted up and sharing,

      I always try to share content that I find here just as I would my own hubs. Meaning most of them get a link on twitter, google+, and stumbleupon. I link things to facebook only if I think they're really, really interesting.

      This just gives me more incentive to share good hubs. Good job.

      CCahill: The group I mentioned hubs on Twitter, google+, Facebook, Stumble, Reddit.

      The stats for the Dallas views were unrelated to the $6.00 increase (that was from the sharing).

      Rather the stats for Dallas were to show the amount of traffic from outside of hub readers that read the article.

      I would guess my profits camimg now from that Dallas hub in the past few days earned $2-$3. I am at $10.68 so far this month.

      Victoria Lynn; Thank you for sharing the Dallas hub I will also share a hub for you. No the $6 came from the sharing effort! I had writen the Dallas hub in effort to try a popular topic and I had wanted to watch the premier so turned it into an article.

      Angela, this is a great hub! While I have not joined forces with others I have seen similar results in the past week from sharing on social sites. There is a definate immediate spike in traffic with some (like StumbleUpon) and with other sites I have seen traffic stay steady over a couple days.

      The on concen I have with this approach is that it may not create a long term traffic stream but rather a stream you need to manage.

      Either way, with a couple weeks in you have had impressive growth and I hope I am only a little behind you as a newbie.

      You got $6+ in one day! :o .. thats fantastic, yet only 400 views on that day? im guessing other hubs than the one shared brought some in cos i kinda thought that 400 views would equate to roughly $1

      I like how you wrote this hub about the practical uses of sharing hubs here, and the importance of the whole sharing factors as well that you've pointed out.

      To help add to your sharing hub here, if you have any external web locations of your own, you can literally share many hubbers RSS Feeds and post it to your location.

      You can utilize the profile widget here as well to share your own hubpages profile or that of any of the hubber you choose to share with on your blogs, or websites as well.

      Me and a few others have joined forces outside of hubpages (on many of our blogs an website locations) in attempts to help one another get the word out about all of our hubs, and this is something we can all do as well to help one another, and its 100% doable, and legitimate. (We only use RSS feeds, and backlinks, no copying of hubs or parts of hubs)

      I like your hub overall it is definitely a unique display of your writing skills and has earned you a place here in the hubpages community. I would like to congratulate you on doing such a fantastic job here, and keep up the great work. You are definitely headed to the top of hubpages and fast, also judging by the number of followers you've managed to scrape up in only 6 weeks thus far. Wow!

      Brilliant hub. I don't write every day so I'm not sure if this for me.

      Voted up and interesting.

      Have a great weekend, Joyce.
