The best and the easiest part is done and completed – you have just published your hub. Well done that is a challenge that many people fail to achieve – you have done it so your chances of earning money online is that bit better than you thought before publishing your hub.

Now that the hub is published you now need to get people to come and read your hubs, this is called ‘Traffic’ in web language. Getting traffic to your hubs is the next challenge that you need to accept in order to increase your ability to earn money online from people visiting your hubs.

The key to earning money from your hubs is to drive more and more traffic to your content. To add that little bit of complexity some would say it needs to be targeted traffic.

Tips – How to get traffic to my Hubs

As you may already know there are so many ways in which you can get more traffic to your hubs, and everybody on Hubpages would love to increase their readership, besides that’s what leads to more money earning power.

Getting traffic is a bit like the rain – it starts slow and gradually pours down – and if you’re lucky and there is enough cloud around it may last some time.

Tips to get more traffic to your hub is to use the following 1 automated tool that basically hooks you into many social networking sites, and allows you to automatically submit your hub’s to those outlets.

(a) OnlyWire - go to onlywire.com and create an account with them, download and install the free version of their desktop client.

You will then see a list of all the bookmarking websites. You will the need to go to each one of the social bookmarking sites and register an account or user profile with them. Once you register, enter your login details on the OnlyWire account setup page and save all settings.

Go into the OnlyWire client tool and start submitting your hub’s to all the bookmarking websites. Make sure that you visit each of these Social sites and setup a user profile and take part in some activities to build up a reputation and if possible following of other users on those sites.

That is all there is to it!

(b) Facebook- You must already have an account or profile on Facebook,if so then great your job is half done. If not then go in and create an account on Facebook.

Login using your account to Facebook and post your hubs as links to your wall. You can also post your hubs as links on wall belonging to your friends.

The other thing to do is find Facebook pages that are relevant to the content of your hub, either register as a user for those pages or click ‘Like’ on Facebook for those pages that you like and is relevant to your content.

What you do then is simply post your hubs as links or comments on those pages for other people to see and read about.

Although OnlyWire does the first part which is to post your hubs to your wall on Facebook, it does not do the second or third- so make sure that you manually to the second and third parts of this tip o drive more traffic to your hubs.

Patience and dedication is required to increase traffic to your hubs.
Patience and dedication is required to increase traffic to your hubs.

As mentioned before there are many ways in which you can drive o increase more traffic to your hubs, the above two methods are the ones that I use regularly and have benefited immensely. I can see the difference in traffic to my hubs each time I submit my content using the above methods.

Although the journey of increasing traffic to your hubs is hard and filled with obstacles, it is a never ending journey and one that will bring you many rewards of you dedicate some time to it. Earning money online is possible but only with driving traffic to your hubs.

If you don’t have traffic you will not get clicks or impressions – No money from Adsense or Hubpages – Remember more traffic more money online.

      Yes Stumbleupon is a good one for traffic, try Facebook and Digg. What I find with Social network sites is you need to be at active on them in order to attract traffic to your HP hubs. The social networks that I am active in tend to send more traffic to my hubs then those that I am not.

      Also try pinging your hub url's using pingfarm. Only signup for the ones that you can actively maintain a presence on.

      I use Onlywire, but only seem to get traffic from Stumbleupon. I've only signed up for 7 of the social media sites available, though. Is it worth signing up for them all?
