Best Ways To Share Your Hubs For Maximum Effect.
Sharing your hubs.
Sharing your hubs is a sure fire way of gaining page views for your articles. Overlooked by many and a big mistake, is not sharing the hubs you read with your followers. It seems that if you do this often there is a knock on effect which you can take advantage of. Here you will find my best ways to share your hubs, but there is a catch. If you read this all the way through you must promise me that you will act on the information and start by sharing this article with your followers. Do we have a deal ? Good, that's a great decision. You must also continue to act on the information everyday.
You read an article which you are impressed with. You owe it to your friends and followers to share it within your Hub Pages community. The knock on effect I refer to is the fact that you do a favour for the writer of the article by sharing it. They get more traffic as a result. Your friends and followers benefit by getting the chance to read a great article. In turn you will get benefit as the favour will most likely be returned and your articles will get shared. This, then will give you more traffic and page views.
I am writing this article as a direct result of reading one by am new hub friend of mine. Check his article on the subject as he provides great statistics to back up the theory about why we must share the hubs of our hub friends and followers.
The person I refer to is http://jainismus.hubpages.com/
Read his take on the subject and you may just see what I mean. Another boost in my hub traffic is the title and I urge you to read and act today.
You scratch my back.
You may have heard me mention this before. Hub Pages is very much a 'you scratch my back and I'll scratch your back' kind of site. If you help others, they will help you. The best traffic you can get is search engine traffic, but your peers within Hub Pages can help do the job for you. What I am saying is 'don't turn your back on your followers' in pursuit of all search engine traffic. I must admit that I did for a while, I now realise it was wrong to do this and has slowed the growth of my traffic internally.
Let me SHARE my ideas.
I'd like to share with you a few ideas on how and indeed, where to share your articles so you can reap the benefits of the all important lifeblood your articles need. That lifeblood is traffic. A great article is only great when it is receiving page views or hits as they are sometimes called. You write in the hope that people will read and enjoy what you have written. Often we pour our heart and souls into our art, so it is reasonable to want people to get benefit from our work.
- Read and share to Facebook
- SHARE to Twitter
- Pin on Pinterest.
- SHARE to Google +
- LinkedIn is a good place to SHARE
Apart from sharing to all the platforms above SHARE with your own followers right here on HubPages. You owe it to your followers and yourself to help as many people who are doing the same as you. It is high time that we all realised this and started to act. Especially true for new recruits to Hub Pages,
So come on and get sharing like crazy starting today.
Treat it as an experiment.
If you are like me you will treat the exercise as an experiment to prove or disprove that it will work for all of us. I am going to track figures and document the findings at a later time.
It was and still is my intention to do this with an earlier article on the subject of Pinterest. You see I had read that it is beneficial to Pin articles and share them around the site and encourage friends and followers to re pin them as it is likely to improve your ranking for the articles, not only of your own but of your followers. The only problem is many people read the articles then never act. The bottom line is the truth is never discovered.
The article I refer to is Because You're Worth It.
It would be great if as well as SHARING this article that you could re pin both articles by going to my Pinterest site and repinning from the first Board on the site called You're Worth It.
Give it a go and I will let you know the results when I have some data which will back this up.
Here is the board I refer to http://pinterest.com/poshcoffeeco/you-re-worth-it/
My feeling is that if you don't ask you don't get in this life. If you do this for me then please ask and I will return the favour if you would like to mount an experiment of your own. I will be only too pleased to help.
At this stage I think it is worth mentioning that I have set up a Google+ community around the subject of Pinterest. If you would like to join me then visit and join Pinterest Pinners Worldwide.
